E3 has been going on this past week. I’m not a big gamer. I haven’t always not been a gamer. When I was younger, I was a huge gamer. I was really into the PS2, N64, Wii, and Gameboy.
One of my favorite franchises, besides Donkey King, is one called Onimusha.
It’s been years since Capcom released an Onimusha game. It’s weird that I like the Onimusha series, because I’m not a huge fan of Zombies (The exception being The Walking Dead…) and I’m not a fan of the Resident Evil fixed camera gameplay.
Onimusha for some reason just clicked with me and had a strong connection to my imagination. It was like Legend of Zelda, but rooted in history. I’m Asian-American. More specifically, Japanese-American. I found it interesting to play as a samurai and kill off lots of Zombies with a sword. You could also get magic swords, that spit out Flame, and electricity.
I had wanted to bring some of these elements into the comic series I had been writing, but with me moving on to chase other stories I won’t.
We went one console generation with out a Onimusha. It’s the one thing that would seriously make me buy a new console. I had so much fun upgrading the weapons, and looking for clues. Demon Siege for sure is the best entry in the series. I remember needing out about Onimusha with a friend named Billy in high school.
I seriously hope they consider bringing Onimusha to the PS4.
