Onimusha Dawn of Dreams dated

It's all happening in early 2006.

Capcom's announced that Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams will be released in Japan in January, and over in the States a couple of months later in March. Meanwhile, Capcom Eurosoft says we can also expect it sometime in Q1.

As Onimusha devotees will already know, Dawn of Dreams is the fourth instalment in the PS2 series, and takes place some 16 years after the events of Onimusha 3. Players control Soki, a young warrior living under the reign of Hideyoshi.

All seems to be going swimmingly (lots of barbecues, camp-fires, sing-alongs - that sort of thing), when all of a sudden a red star appears in the sky, and the land's suddenly wracked with horrible natural disasters. Then the demons show up, and Soki's mystical powers come to the fore. Good news for him.

Back at its announcement pre-E3, Capcom said Dawn of Dreams would be the first Onimusha game to use a proper, over-the-shoulder-style third-person camera, and with the game just a few months off now we're told that the theme tunes will be new songs performed by Ayumi Hamasaki. Rob probably knows who that is, but we don't, so we'll just stop.
