The lights are on
Onimusha was a major franchise for Capcom during the PS2 years, but the series has been dormant on the current generation of hardware. According to Capcom's Yoshinori Ono, Onimusha could be making a comeback sooner than you think.
In an interview with IGN, Ono admitted that he thinks Onimusha is ready to make a reappearance. "The time feels right to me. It feels like it's the time to resurrect that series," Ono says. "But I wouldn't want to do the things we've done before. I think it might be time to progress beyond the standard single-player adventure. There should be ways to expand upon what we've done while involving the community more. Perhaps implement some sort of multiplayer into a game like that."
I always get nervous when developers start talking about multiplayer in traditionally single-player games, but we don't know which (if any) of these ideas will actually make it into production. Onimusha has been dormant for a while… let's hope that bringing it back isn't another Bionic Commando-caliber fiasco.

HELL YEAH. Time for some Onimusha
Screw Onimusha. I want my Kessen games back where Nobunaga was a good guy D:
OMG cant wait to see this
this would be great i love all the onimusha games and think its about time :)
yes this game would look so good on the ps3
I loved that series and it is high time for Onimusha to make a return. I have waiting for a new one since Dawn of Dreams and man I loved that game.
All for this, 100% But I'd like to see it with a new, more awesome engine if they did do it. I want a samurai sim with an incredibly depthful engine.
I own all the Onimusha games. I would definitely be into this.
that would be awesome loved all of toes games. but i really hope they dont do the multiplayer thing since i love single player story games please oh please no multiplayer
HAHA! I knew Dawn of Dreams wasn't the last Onimusha, and if it was what a great game to end it, I kinda expected possible multiplayer Off/online because of Dawn of Dreams. Dead Space 2 has a good multiplayer and it was originally Single player, as well as Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, I'm confident Onimusha will do well with multiplayer, will it be a sequel to Dawn of Dreams?(I really liked Dawn of Dreams if you haven't noticed) or an indirect sequel? or a reboot (I don't usually like reboots, I hope DMC works out)
multiplayer gets annoying, next thing you know there will be multiplayer on tomb raider or prince of persia. lol
They better do it right. Onimusha 4 wasnt too bad, just could have been better
HELL NO!!!! TO HELL WITH DYNASTY WARRIORS TOO!!!
PLEASE bring this back to life!! But no multi-player!!
Hell yeah i was a huge fan of Onimusha, can't wait to see what they have in store for us now!!!
