YES! Capcom have revealed that the brilliant samurai adventure Onimusha: Warlords is getting a remastered release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC on January 15th 2019.
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.

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 reveal of Onimusha: Warlords’ new release is simply brilliant news and it comes out a week before my birthday – definitely going to be a case of ‘treat yoself’.
