Are we finally going to get a new Onimusha game?

Fans should be excited that Capcom is having serious talks about making another Onimusha game.

While nothing is set in stone at this point in time, Yoshinori Ono - best known for his work on the Street Fighter series - told DailyStar in an interview that an Onimusha sequel is being discussed.

Mr. Ono told DailyStar that he has talked to many of the people who helped him create Onimusha and asking them if they would be interested in revisiting the series. He was quick to point out, however, that fans of the series shouldn't get their hopes up. At this point, the game is only at the "discussion phase" with any concrete plans being further down the line. 

Fans can most likely expect updates to come after the release of Street Fighter V. Mr. Ono said that he is still quite busy with the impending release and isn't ready to talk fight for a new Onimusha game just yet. 

For fans of the popular Capcom series, this is great news. It has been almost ten years since the last major Onimusha game was released for the PS2, and it's good to see the series hasn't been forgotten.

What do you guys think? Are you ready for a new Onimusha game? Let me know down in the comments!


Hi! My name is Nick, and I am yet another kid trying to break into the world of gaming journalism. I am currently attending grad school and pursuing my Master's in Journalism. Want to know my favorite game? It's Mass Effect, but not the third one; we don't talk about that one. I am also an avid fan of any and all board games, and you should totally try Risk Legacy; it's like regular Risk but better.
