Capcom ready to reveal new Onimusha?

Teaser site timeline suggests as much.

Capcom may be teasing the imminent revelation of a brand new Onimusha game.

A teaser website presents three dates - 1560, 1573 and 1582 - before crossing them out and stamping 1600 in big, bold type on top.

It just so happens that those three dates correlate with the first three Onimusha instalments on PlayStation 2, in sequential order. And the presentation even matches the series', 1UP points out.

Onimusha is an action-adventure samurai series based on Japanese history with a supernatural slant. Key to the success of Onimusha is a mixture of third-person sword swishery and puzzle solving, a bit like Zelda.

A PlayStation 3 release - or indeed multiplatform, given Capcom's dedication to it - would be most welcome.

Go back in time to our Onimusha: Warlords, Onimusha 2: Samurai's Destiny and Onimusha 3: Demon Siege reviews for some background reading.
