Capcom has shared a brand new trailer revealing that the 2001 action game Onimusha: Warlords is making a comeback on Switch next year.

It's been almost 20 years since Onimusha: Warlords first released on PlayStation 2, and 12 years since the franchise saw a last mainline game release, so seeing this remaster introduced - and on Switch, no less - is very welcome indeed. The game sees players take on the role of Samanosuke Akechi as he fights against demons, with sword-based action and puzzle elements that involve interacting with the environments all blending together.

This remaster is set to include a visual overhaul, with HD graphics being present as you might expect, alongside the ability to switch between widescreen and 4:3 ratio options. There will also reportedly be a 'screen scroll' feature for widescreen display - in which the background scrolls up and down according to your movements - as well as analog stick support, an easy difficulty option available from the start, and a new soundtrack complete with Japanese voice-overs.

The game will be available on 15th January 2019 in Europe and North America, with the former only receiving the title as a digital release.
