The classic Omnimusha: Warlords will feature high-definition graphics, widescreen display option, analog stick support, a readily available Easy Mode option, and a new soundtrack.
Here’s a brief overview of the game, via Capcom:
Onimusha: Warlords follows the battle-filled journey of samurai Samanosuke Akechi and ninja Kaede on a quest to save Princess Yuki from a legion of mysterious demons who have invaded Inabayama Castle. As the two travel throughout the castle, they unravel a malevolent plot by those who would serve the evil lord Nobunaga Oda. Using sword-based combat, a magical Oni Gauntlet and puzzle solving, players need to call on both brawn and creativity to defeat the demonic foes.
For gamers who missed out on Omnimusha: Warlords back when it was released on PlayStation 2, now is a good time to play it when the game releases in January 2019 – especially with high-definition graphics and updated controls. Omnimusha: Warlords borrowed elements from Capcom’s Resident Evil series such as its fixed camera and solving puzzles, though the game focused more on the action genre.
Since this Omnimusha: Warlords will be the first Omnimush game to be released for current-generation consoles, it bodes well that we might hear something soon about a sequel. Fans of the Omnimusha series have been clamoring for a next-gen title and a remastered version of Omnimusha: Warlords is a good start.
The game will be available as a digital and physical purchase across North America and Europe for only $19.99.
