Capcom has announced a new Onimusha title, however it’s one most fans won’t be extremely thrilled about, as it’s a browser-based title dubbed Onimusha Soul. I think I’m crying on the inside while writing this.
If you didn’t know, Onimusha is one of my favorite franchises of all time. The game literally ruled on PS2, so to see Capcom resurrecting the brand in the worst possible way, just brings a nasty taste to my buds. Anyway….
The game is a Sengoku-era strategy RPG effort that will include Onimusha legendary characters like Jubei and Samanosuke.
Get the full thing over at Andrisang. The last console title was released back in 2006.
i just really can’t believe it. i don’t understand the onimusha series was capcom’s fifth best selling franchise of all time and to see them just treat like filth really pisses me off. your right ernice capcom’s moves have been out of touch, they pulled alot of crap this gen but this took the cake. onimusha: warlords was the first game i ever played on the PS2, it was more than enough incentive for me to get a PS2 at launch. CRAPCOM i hate you.
They’re completely and utterly out of touch with their fanbase. And like you said, this took the cake. I seriously cannot understand this. Why do this to Onimusha?
why do this? because CRAPCOM are stupid idiots. i swear whoever pitched this idea should be fired
Fired and banished. This is an actual tragedy.
this is actually not a bad thing.
crapcoms just testing the water to see if theres still a fanbase for it.
if this does really well then they probably will do a proper sequel to the series.
It’s a stupid thing, man. They go and make Asura’s Wrath. Look at how poorly that sold. Man Onimusha would have sold a few million copies. They need not test the waters, they need to fire some execs.
let explain something to you nick, how in the Fu***** hell is this gonna do good when this is practically not onimusha. you honestly think fans are just gonna pick this up and be like “oh this is the onimusha i’ve been waiting for 6 yrs to play” no they’re not.
^^ what Ghost said.
and how are they suppose to know that?
when your willing to spend 50 million bucks on development, several M on advertising, plus several M on manufacturing and distribution, plus several M on ratings around the world, then you can say that.
come on guys get real!
as if a companys going to dive in head first on a series that has not seen a sequel in years!
“as if a companys going to dive in head first on a series that has not seen a sequel in years!” you do realize that street fighter hadn’t seen a sequel in 8 yrs right until SFIV came out, or what about DMC which hasn’t had a sequel in 4yrs, or what about Marvel Vs Capcom that hadn’t seen a sequel in which hadn’t seen a sequel in 11yrs. further proving my point you have no damn clue what your talking about. you act as if there is no fanbase for onimusha. at all when there obviously is. “Onimusha fifth best selling franchise in capcoms history”
OMFG you did not just mention SF or MVC did you?
dude, ever heard of EVO?
sigh, i give up.
solving world hunger, stopping all wars, and reuniting all religions would be easier then getting through to you!
Evo? thats the best excuse you can come up with…….. XD. yeah with a little over 2400 people in attendance which is there biggest record to date. yep you sure got me there XD. dude id rather listen to a grass grow then listen to that bullcrap. like really get outta here dude. and another thing practice what you preach cause your only dude on this site that acts as if hes right about everything when hes not.
