Capcom considers Dino Crisis, Onimusha reboots
With the entire industry going crazy over reboots, many fans have clamored for Capcom to revisit two older favorites: Dino Crisis, a survival-horror franchise that debuted on the original PlayStation, and Onimusha, a samurai action game that launched on the PlayStation 2.
While the Japanese publisher isn't working on either game on the moment, vice president of strategic planning and business development Christian Svensson recently told IGN that Cpacom is actively thinking about both franchises.
"There are discussions ... but there isn't any burning desire from R&D or the business side to light that franchise back up again," Svensson explained. "Until there's an internal champion with something incredible, things just sort of sit there."
The last time either franchise saw mainline entries was in 2006, with the launch of Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams and Dino Crisis 3, for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox, respectively.
