Capcom has released the first gameplay video for the Onimusha: Warlords remaster, so get ready for a dose of nostalgia.

The newest gameplay video for Onimusha: Warlords is all about hacking and slashing, showing off the various techniques at your disposal for battling ogres and demons.

Players can counterattack to kill enemies in single strike, and use magic attacks tied to “three distinct weapons.”

Stepping into the shoes of master swordsman, Samanosuke, you’ll be able to suck up the souls of fallen foes with his “special gauntlet” to restore your health, and bolster your gear.

The remaster was announced back in August, along with updated features to “improve your demon-slaying adventure.”

New additions include HD graphics, a widescreen display option, analog stick support, an Easy Mode option, and a new soundtrack.

Onimusha: Warlords launches for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch on January 15, 2019.
