Ninja Theory and Capcom are pleased to announce a reboot of the beloved Onimusha franchise following the spectacular success of their recent collaborative title DmC.
Only a few salivating details are known at this point.
Players will assume the role of Sam, a half-Japanese, quarter-British, quarter-Native American ronin.
On one fateful day he is visited by JAV actress-turned-kunoichi Aya. She tells him the evil Norman Naga is planning to buyout the world with a US-Japanese joint venture domiciled in the Cayman Islands so the authorities are utterly powerless to stop him. Sam, with the blood of both the Ogre and Gemma clans in his veins, is humanity's only hope.
Players will have the chance to collect up to THREE different katanas, one for each of wind, fire and lightning. Coincidentally, there are three types of enemies, those coloured green, red and blue. Whether there is a connection remains to be seen.
The Issen mechanic has been removed, as NT feels it would be too inaccessible to new players. Also, guarding will block everything without fail and guard breaks never occur. Despite these changes, Capcom's talented staff have assured fans that the gameplay will be just as deep, if not deeper, than previous entries.
Sam will face down tasteless racial slurs hurled at him by his foes, such as slanty eyes, yellow belly and Mr Miyagi.
Instead of Gemma, there will be vampires, and instead of feudal Japan, the game will be set in modern day London.
'We want to instil our own vision into the Onimusha series' muses gaming icon Tameem Antoniades
'I want this game to be like a Haiku in motion'.
As an added incentive, players will be able to unlock the new look Dante after completing the six hour campaign.
