Capcom literally just dropped a trailer on us for Onimusha: Warlords, a remaster of 2001’s Onimusha which debuted on PlayStation 2 a whole 17 years ago.
The trailer presents everything older gamers loved about Onimusha such as the combination of tense, measured swordfights, cinematic storytelling and the bad-ass supernatural threats. Onimusha casts you as Samanosuke Akechi, a samurai dashing to the aid of princess Yuki, who is imperiled by an army of demons.
Onimusha: Warlords will update the game’s visual assets while retaining its old-school fixed camera. Other features include widescreen support, an easy mode for a more newcomer accessible experience, a brand new soundtrack and the addition of analog stick support to the controls. That’s right, this game is so old it made D-pad use mandatory
Capcom community manager Andy Wong wrote on the PlayStation Blog: "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."
"After selling more than two million copies worldwide on PS2, we’re proud to announce Onimusha: Warlords is coming with a host of features that will enhance your samurai adventure!"
Fans might be disappointed this isn't a new game in the franchise or an audacious new remake like Resident Evil 2, they can thank their stars its not a guest cameo in a fighting game or a mobile game. Though originally a PlayStation franchise, Onimusha: Warlords arrives not just on PS4 but on PC, Xbox One and Switch on January 15, 2019.

It’s a pity Massive Entertainment can’t seem to make a good story out of what I think is an interesting universe set in the modern world, but as it stands, despite its shortcomings, The Division 2 is one of the best looter shooters out today. If you’re new to the genre, you can’t go wrong here. And for those coming from other looter shooters, you might get a kick out of what they have waiting for you at the end.

Every now and them I find myself itching for a good RPG, and Final Fantasy: The Zodiac Age is one of those games that I’ve always wanted to complete because this Final Fantasy title is the only numbered game in the franchise that I’ve never finished, and the new additions in the remastered version have made this classic a better game overall.
Deep down, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is an amazing action-adventure game and a fresh departure from the titles that FromSoftware built its reputation on. Sekiro’s still a difficult game, but it rewards players who are eager to learn how to play and use the tools and abilities given to them.
Days Gone has characters that make you smile, and a trusty bike ready to take you away.
