What ever happened to Capcom’s Onimusha series, where is Onimusha 5? The last we heard from the series was back in 2006 with “Onimusha 4”, which was released for PlayStation 2 with the title, Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams.

This game starred an entirely new cast with a new storyline after the close of the original trilogy with the first three games.

  • The last we heard from Capcom regarding an Onimusha 5, was in a early 2006 GameSpy interview in which Executive Producer, Keiji Inafune, and Producer, Yoshinori Ono were asked if we might see a portable entry. They replied that a DS or PSP version may come if enough gamers requested it.

    GameSpy Question: Are there any plans to bring the Onimusha series to the PSP or DS?

    Yoshinori Ono Answer: Pretend like I’m asking this to Mr. Inafune, “Can I please make Onimusha for PSP or DS?” If it seems like it’s something that gamers want, then I’ll be able to make them.

    Of course, it was also stated that Dawn of Dreams would be the start of a NEW trilogy, but that trilogy never materialized after Capcom left the PS2.

    However the game franchise as a whole is hardly dead, as an Onimusha movie is coming in 2011 and it will even star the same actor that the Dawn of Dreams character model was based on (Taiwanese-Japanese actor Takeshi Kaneshiro)!

    The game series is financially viable with Capcom stating they planned to ship 1.3 million copies of the 4th game worldwide. Hopefully we will hear some kind of (handheld or console) news regarding a new 5th Onimusha game at this year’s Tokyo Game Show 2009. Which will be held this month from September 24th to September 27th.

    If you missed out on the Onimusha series, here is a preview of the reboot that was Onimusha 4: Dawn of Dreams.
