Cue LL Cool J because we got another gaming comeback! Capcom’s action title Onimusha: Warlords is getting its armor polished and swords for a return to glory on current gen consoles. Originally released for the PlayStation 2 in 2001, Onimusha takes place during the Sengoku period and focuses on the samurai Samanosuke Akechi who fights against the forces of Nobunaga Oda. After Nobunaga’s death in battle, Samanosuke goes on a quest to save Princess Yuki from demons working alongside Nobunaga’s forces. The player controls Samanosuke and his partner, a female ninja Kaede, in their fight against demons. The game was met with overwhelming success, selling two million copies and becoming one of the best selling games on the PlayStation 2. Onimusha Warlords spawned two direct sequels and three more games within the franchise.
Onimusha: Warlords is set to launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC in January 2019.
