Onimusha Warlords originally released on PS2 back in 2001. It tasked you with fighting off hordes of deadly demons in Inabayama Castle. You have to save the castle and its princess in classic action gameplay somewhere between Ninja Gaiden and old-school Resident Evil. The game quickly became a cult classic, and now, Capcom are bringing it back for modern audiences.
Capcom confirmed the HD port in August. Not content with a simple HD porting of the original game, Capcom are adding in a host of upgrades. you’ll be able to play the game in its original 4:3 format, or in a new widescreen view. You can change this at any time during the game on the options menu. To go alongside the new widescreen option and updated graphics, Capcom have upgraded the camera this time around, even giving players the option to play the game with analogue sticks. A new soundtrack, voice overs, and easy mode also await players in the Onimusha Warlords HD port.
As this is an HD port of an old game, and not a full-on remaster, however, Capcom has confirmed that it will set us back only $19.99. It will be available both physically and digitally on PS4 and Xbox One in the States, but only digitally on the Switch and PC. Those of us in Europe, however, will only be able to buy the game digitally across all consoles.
