Set in 16th century Japan, with battle scenes inspired by famed Japanese director, Akira Kurosawa, Onimusha introduces players to Samanosuke, a legendary Samurai warrior faced with a quest of epic proportions. Genma Onimusha takes place in a world of darkness and magic, when power hungry warlords battle for control of Feudal Japan. Samanosuke boldly volunteers to rescue the kidnapped princess Yuki, but even he does not realise the desperation of this mission. An entire legion of demon warriors stands between him and his mission to avenge the princess.

The power of Xbox is utilised as Genma Onimusha displays more enemies simultaneously due to its powerful graphic capabilities, supports 5.1 Dolby Surround technology and more. Other new features that enhance its critically acclaimed gameplay include a new attack system, new areas, visuals and costumes, and a new soul rope-pulling fighting system.

  • All-new enemies - Genma Onimusha introduces several new unearthly creatures to the critically acclaimed world of Onimusha.

  • Soul Rope-Pulling System - Adding a completely new dimension to game play, this Xbox exclusive fighting system allows players to battle with their opponent over souls that are released during battle. This action will make strategy and quick reflexes even more important to game play

  • Burst Attack - This Xbox exclusive special charge attack allows players to execute a visually stunning super attack that is devastating to the undead soldiers of old-world Japan.
