New Trademark For Onimusha Filed By Capcom

With both The Game Awards and The Playstation Experience coming up this week Capcom apparently has plans to resurrect the Onimusha series in some form, judging by a new trademark filed by Capcom.
As posted on NeoGAF, a Japanese trademark has been filed for the property, although nothing is known about the filing other than the fact that it’s new and is not a renewal of a previous trademark. Whether it will be used for a new console/mobile title, a remaster, or at all is unknown at this time.
The Onimusha series last made an appearance in North America with Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams in 2006 on PS2. It is possible that with the recently announced PS2 emulation coming to PS4 that the Onimusha series could be some of the first titles up for grabs for the new service.

Before I became a Geek Under Grace I was a student of Journalism and have always aspired to write for a gaming and geek culture publication. I am truly blessed to have found an outlet to reach not only thousands of fans, but those who may not have yet found Christ. My favorite genre of games is third-person/sandbox games. I like the freedom that they allow both in gameplay and in scale and they just seem less bland and limited than more linear titles. I still have a soft spot for RPG games but I now enjoy JRPGs far less than I did as a child because they are still basically the exact same as they always were, with a few exceptions of course. I also enjoy playing more tactical third-person multiplayer shooters or first-person shooters that try to shake things up. I absolutely hate games based on WWII or Vietnam as those settings and those types of gameplay have been done to death. Though I am not opposed to a future Assassin's Creed title being set during one of these wars. I also typically tend to stay away from MOBA's as they are notorious for abusive, and generally unsavory online communities. My favorite game of all time is Chrono Trigger, which ironically enough is a JRPG but its one that I consider untouchable in quality. The runner-up for my favorite game of all time would be Star Fox 64.
