Rumor: Capcom teaser site is for new Onimusha game [Update]

Wednesday, 1st July 2009 19:13 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


If teaser sites aren’t doing your head in just yet, here’s another one for you. This time from Capcom.

Apparently, this teaser site just shows dates. Dates that should be familiar to all who have played Onimusha titles.

According to the decryption over at 1UP, the dates 1560, 1573, and 1582 flashing across the screen are a time line which ends with 1600. The first Onimusha taking place in 1560.

The X’s that cross off the first three dates also resemble the lettering of the games’ titles.

Dunno ’bout you guys, but we think this stuff is venturing into dead horse territory.

More through the links.

[Update] Looks like it’s for Basara: Battle Heroes instead. Thanks, Panou.

    It certainly is not, madam, and damn you for ever letting the thought cross your mind.

    yes, if I’m correct its the year Tokugawa becomes Shogun, officially starting the Edo period (peace and prosperity)

    Wasn’t there a demon invasion, or some such?

    Can’t be any weirder than time-travelling Jean Reno.

    Perhaps Samonosuke will team up with Ameterasu in tag-team or co-op action…

    Nah, that’s unlikely.
