Onimusha: Warlords Comes to PS4, Xbox One, and Switch in January 2019

The PS2 classic is back with a bang.

Onimusha might have first debuted a whole 17 years ago, but now Capcom has announced a remaster for the original PS2 classic. Onimusha: Warlords will be released on January 15, 2019.

Just below, you can see the reveal trailer for Onimusha: Warlords, which is a remaster of the original game, released first on the PS2. This is the classic tale of the lone samurai, rushing to rescue Princess Yuki in fuedal Japan.

"It has been over 17 years since Onimusha: Warlords first appeared on PS2, kicking off a beloved series that spawned sequels and spin-offs full of intense sword fights, duty-bound warriors, and demons determined to envelop the world in darkness," writes Capcom community manager Andy Wong on the PlayStation Blog. "After selling more than two million copies worldwide on PS2, we’re proud to announce Onimusha: Warlords is coming to PS4 with a host of features that will enhance your samurai adventure!"

Characters, environments, and cinematics have all been given a refresh for the upcoming Onimusha: Warlords. Aside from this, both the game's original display mode and widescreen options will be supported at launch in January 2019. However, the fixed camera perspective of the original PS2 game will be maintained for the remaster.

Onimusha: Warlords is a remaster of the original PS2 classic, and will release worldwide for the PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on January 15, 2019.
