Capcom has made a lot of great games in the past, and are currently working to remaster / remake the best of them. Evidence of this include Okami HD (which was remastered once before for the PS3) and a few Resident Evil games. Resident Evil 2‘s remake is even getting one of the most expensive special editions to date. The latest one to be given new life is Onimusha: Warlords.
As this is a remaster and not a complete remake, don’t expect a complete overhaul of the game. Such as what Capcom has done in the Resident Evil 2 remake. For those who have experienced the original, the only notable differences will be the widescreen treatment, and more precise movement using the analog stick. For those who have not, this would be the perfect opportunity to experience a game that was released during the great PS2 era.

Speaking of platforms, the Onimusha: Warlords remaster will be made available on PS4, PC, Xbox One and even the Switch. The game is slated for a 15 January 2019 release.
The PlayStation Blog states that the U.S. will be able to pre-order a physical copy, while digital versions will be open for pre-order at a later date. Europe will only be getting the digital version, but there’s no mention of Malaysia, or even Asia in general. As for the price, we’re looking at US$19.99 (~RM82).
