Capcom’s 2001 cult classic Onimusha: Warlords makes it way on current platforms, including the Nintendo Switch, on January 15th, 2019. For those unfamiliar with Warlords, players will assume the role of samurai Samanosuke Akeche on his quest to rescue Princess Yuki. Players will fight all manner of creature, ranging from humans to demonic beings. The original Onimusha was praised for its intense gameplay and gripping narrative, later going on to sell over 2 million copies worldwide. The re-release will act as a remaster with updated resolution and graphics to better accommodate modern displays. The new version will also have widescreen support, unlike the original, and features an updated soundtrack and easier difficult option.
Onimusha: Warlords will be sold both physically and digitally for $19.99, with the physical release being North America-exclusive for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
