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?
