Resident Evil producer Masachika Kawata has said Capcom isn’t likely to return to Onimusha or Dino Crisis any time soon. “Capcom has obviously never shied away from bringing back our older IPs to new generations, but I do think it’s more important for us to focus on creating new IP as we move forward,” he told VideoGamer when asked about the fan-favourite properties; Kawata had worked on both. Capcom USA recently surveyed fans about their preferences on the treatment of back-catalogue properties, though.

Here’s hoping they’ve long since fired the guy who suggested it’d be “incredible” to put dinosaurs in space.

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.

According to the Capcom blog, dates have now been put on both the Onimusha and Clock Tower movies.
Clock Tower will hit next year, apparently, with Onimusha releasing in 2011.
Which is cool. Especially the Clock Tower bit.
