Capcom Working on Expanding Reach for Onimusha, Sengoku BASARA & More

Capcom recently published a summation of their 44th General Shareholders Meeting, comprising various questions and responses. And while most of the answers are expectedly generic, some still deserve mention.

One question, for example, asked what Capcom’s plans are regarding Monster Hunter, Onimusha, Sengoku BASARA, and more. In response, the company stated they’re working on expanding the reach of these franchises.

The quoted question and exchange are quoted below:

Question: What are your future plans for expanding the Monster Hunter, Toraware no Paruma, Sengoku BASARA and Onimusha series?

Answer: We are carrying out discussions regarding the future expansion of these titles so they can be enjoyed by a wide audience.

Of course, there’s nothing specific here to grab onto, but interestingly, such notions weren’t shot down for Onimusha and the like since the series has been relatively dormant.

Hopefully, Onimusha will receive a brand-new installment. A Netflix anime adaptation is in the works, so perhaps we’ll hear more soon.

The first title, Onimusha: Warlords, was released for the PlayStation 2 in 2001. However, it received a modern launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in 2019.

Onimusha: Warlords follows the journey of a samurai named Samanosuke Akechi and a ninja named Kaede, who are on a quest to save Princess Yuki, who resides in the Inabayama Castle. Evidently, this isn’t going to be easy for the two heroes to accomplish due to the castle being invaded by demons that were created as part of a plot by the evil lord Nobunaga Oda.
