Capcom’s Onimusha: Warlords, the HD remaster, receives a new trailer highlighting the combat of both the game’s protagonists, Samonosuke (samurai) and Kaede (ninja). Samurai, ninjas, and demons clashing in tightly knit areas on a 3D plane? Sounds like my cup of sake’, and perhaps yours too; go ahead and take a look at that high-res gameplay down below.

The PS2 classic receives a second wind with higher resolution on modern consoles, but there are other features aside from the refined looks to get excited about. A widescreen mode (16:9) is now available and you can switch on the fly in-game between this and the original mode (4:3). Screen scrolling comes bundled with the freshly added widescreen mode and will allow players to get a more expansive look at their surroundings. Analog functionality is here, as too are the original controls. And for those looking for a fun, relaxed stroll with a sword-in-hand then luckily for you (and possibly me) the new Easy mode will deliver on that front. You can peep the official Onimusha: Warlords’ website for all this info and more.

I’ve never played any title from the Onimusha series, but I think I’ll finally give the series a go with the remastered Onimusha: Warlords. I always appreciate a good remaster because it presents a convenient opportunity to play games that I may have missed out on. For instance, I played The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker for the first time thanks to the remaster on the Wii U and it ended up being one of my favorite games. I’m sure other people share the same sentiment too.

Onimusha: Warlords will unsheath itself onto PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC next year come January 15, 2019.
