Capcom has announced a remaster of Onimusha: Warlords, due out on PC via Steam, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on 15th January 2019. In Europe, the game is download-only across all platforms.

Onimusha: Warlords, a sword-based action game set in feudal Japan, first launched in 2001 on PS2 and went on to sell over two million copies.

This new version includes a raft of new features, such as high-definition graphics, widescreen support and new display options (you can switch between 4:3 and 16:9 at any time in-game). There's a screen scroll feature for widescreen display, where the background scrolls up and down according to your movements. This shows areas that can't be fully displayed from certain positions, Capcom said.

Also of note is analog stick support, easy mode available from the start (this wasn't the case in the original game) and a new soundtrack, with Japanese voices recorded for the new release.

It's been quite a while since we've had a new mainline Onimusha game - the last was Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams, which launched on PS2 in 2006. Perhaps this re-release of Warlords is a precursor to the release of a brand new Onimusha game?

Now, where's my new Dino Crisis, Capcom?
