Over a decade after releasing on the PlayStation 2, Onimusha: Warlords is making its way to modern consoles including the Nintendo Switch. Capcom announced earlier this morning that popular samurai Samanosuke and ninja Kaeda will slash their way through a variety of demons while attempting to save their Princess, Princess Yuki. The game mixes together sword and magic-based combat and puzzle solving as players defeat the lord Oda and his demonic co-conspirators.
The full press release follows.
Step into a feudal world filled with magic, samurais, and demon warriors, as Onimusha: Warlords comes to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam on January 15, 2019. Originally released in 2001, Onimusha: Warlords successfully blended thrilling action with a cinematic story to achieve over 2 million copies sold worldwide. Now Capcom brings the original sword fighting action title to current video game systems with updated features including high-definition graphics, widescreen display option, analog stick support, a readily available Easy Mode option, and new soundtrack.
The game will be available as a digital purchase across North America and Europe for MSRP $19.99 on all formats with a physical release in North America available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
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.
