In a recent interview with Daily Star, Onimusha Executive Director Yoshinori Ono revealed that there are discussions “at high levels” of Capcom on the possibility of reviving the Onimusha franchise. Ono said…
“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,b ut 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.”
Ono also reassured fans by saying..
“All I can do for now is reassure fans that conversations are happening at high levels. 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.”
