Onimusha: Warlords was first released on PlayStation 2 in 2001. Its exhilarating sword-fighting action and intense battles against demons captivated players worldwide. That same masterpiece is making a comeback on current-gen consoles.
Japanese actor Takeshi Kaneshiro, who played the voice of main character Samanosuke in the original game, also joined the project as a guest creator. The Japanese voices have been re-recorded for this remake, and the brand new soundtrack promises to be even more spectacular than the original.

Resident Evil but in feudal Japan sounds fucking cool and it is. One of the more noteworthy things about this game is how you can feel the roots of the character action genre taking shape. It came out only a few months before Devil May Cry 1 and definitely shares a lot of the same DNA.
