Onimusha revival discussions ‘happening at high levels’ at Capcom

'Fan favorites are going to come back,' Yoshinori Ono assures.

Onimusha

Discussions to revive the Onimusha series are happening “at high levels” at Capcom, company executive producer Yoshinori Ono told the Daily Star.

“I’ve spoken internally with people who made Onimusha with me originally and talked about maybe how interesting it would be to revisit that series,” Ono said.

He continued, “But fans should know that we’re not further down that road than the discussion phase. Right now, I’m so focused on Street Fighter V that I’m not really in a position to start that same level of battle that I had getting Street Fighter IV made.”

Regardless, Ono reassures fans.

“All I can do for now is reassure fans that conversations are happening at high levels,” Ono said. “We realize the need for different series to maybe come back into the forefront and although there’s nothing to talk about right now, I’m sure in the future there will be news on variety of series that will keep the fans happy.

“[Fan] favorites are going to come back.”
