Street Fighter Producer Wants To Bring Back Onimusha


Talking to IGN, Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono got to talking about a specific stalled franchise from Capcom, and how he'd like to see it come back from the dead.

The time feels right to me. It feels like it's the time to resurrect [Onimusha]. But I wouldn't want to do the things we've done before. I think it might be time to progress beyond the standard single-player adventure. There should be ways to expand upon what we've done while involving the community more. Perhaps implement some sort of multiplayer into a game like that.

The first Onimusha was released in 2001, and was quickly followed by 5 other entries in the series in 5 years, mostly for the Playstation 2. The games were generally a combination of samurai action and survival horror gameplay, and most took place during the Japanese feudal era. One costarred Jean Reno as a modern french police officer though - that was kind of weird. The last game, Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams, came out in 2006 and the series has yet to enter this generation of consoles. Is this one you'd like to see make a comeback, even if they had to change it up a bit to do so?

FFS! This whole going multiplayer to 'progress' a franchise is so stupid.
You want to make a multiplayer game fine, but don't pretend like the series couldn't exist without it.
There are plenty people left who still enjoy a good single player experience. Not everything has to be MMORPG and what not.
Besides, they arguably already did a multiplayer Onimusha with that Blade Warriors fighter game.
This is just another 'we need to westernise games' thing. Japan needs to stop trying to be gimmicky and get back to basics.

That being said, a new Onimusha would be great. I loved the first three and the last one, while nowhere near as good as the previous ones, was still okay.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
