New Features

High-Definition Graphics

Characters, background visuals, and cutscenes have been given a high-definition upgrade. Immerse yourself in the world of Onimusha and enjoy enhanced gameplay with improved graphics.

Widescreen Support, New Display Option

Play using the original game’s display ratio (4:3) or in widescreen (16:9). Switch between 4:3 and 16:9 at any time in-game.

*Some menus and screens are fixed at either 16:9 or 4:3.

A screen scroll feature has also been added for widescreen display. The background scrolls up and down according to player movements, showing areas that wouldn’t be fully displayed otherwise.

Analog Stick Support

In addition to the original controls, this remake allows players to move using analog sticks. This added feature makes it easier to move instinctively and change directions quickly, making more action-packed gameplay possible.

Easy Mode Available

Easy Mode is unlocked for players from the start of gameplay, which was a much-needed feature in the original game. This addition makes it easier for both newcomers and long-time fans to dive right in to the Onimusha world.
