Talk of Onimusha revival “happening at Capcom high levels”

Capcom executives have not forgetting about the Onimusha series.


Onimusha, the classic PS2 action franchise that’s been dormant for years, could one day be revitalised. That’s according to legendary producer Yoshinori Ono, who said that Capcom higher-ups are in fact talking about the franchise.

“I’ve spoken internally with people who made Onimusha with me originally and talked about maybe how interesting it would be to revisit that series,” Ono told Daily Star.

“But fans should know that we’re not further down that road than the discussion phase.”

Onimusha is not dead, however, and with “conversations happening at high levels” at the Japanese publisher, there may still be hope.

“We [Capcom] realise the need for different series to maybe come back into the forefront and although there’s nothing to talk about right now, I’m sure in the future there will be news on variety of series that will keep the fans happy.

“[Fan’s] favourites are going to come back.”

Ono’s latest game, Street Fighter 5, is out next week.
