Ninja Theory squashes Onimusha reboot rumour

Release Date: 04/12/2012

Ninja Theory, the UK developer famous for Heavenly Sword and Enslaved, has taken to Twitter to quell rumours that it's working on a new version of Capcom's supernatural samurai series, Onimusha.

"We are not working on an Onimusha game," the tweet said, leaving little room for doubt. "Any rumours surrounding this are untrue."

It's perhaps not surprising that the studio was linked with the persistent gossip that Capcom is planning to revive the series. Ninja Theory is currently putting the finishing touches to the relaunch of another Capcom saga, Devil May Cry. Although the drastic redesign for lead character Dante earned the ire of some die hard fans, the word from all who've experienced its silky smooth combat is overwhelmingly positive.

Onimusha was last seen on the PlayStation 2, and featured different samurai protagonists battling against invading demons in the 16th century. Originally released in 2001, the game was followed by three sequels, a tactical strategy spin-off, a pachinko game and a CG animated movie.

It's certainly a series that deserves a new entry, but at least we've got the Devil May Cry reboot, due for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on January 15th.
