Release date: 2001
Onimusha is one of the biggest franchises in Capcom's entire catalogue, and it all started in 2001 with the release of Onimusha: Warlords, a hack-and-slash, action adventure game set in 16th century Japan. Sometimes it's nice to take it back to the olden days, when things were simpler, and all the greatest warriors knew magic. Pretty sure that's right anyway. I mean, if Abraham Lincoln was a vampire hunter than surely the samurai could absorb souls and cast elemental spells like they do in Onimusha, right? Look, you believe what you want to believe and I'll do the same. My version sounds way cooler.
