Spark Unlimited may be keeping busy these days with the 2013 release of Lost Planet 3 ( PS3, 360, PC ) and the recently announced action game Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z ( to be published by Tecmo Koei ), but could the California based studio have another project up its sleeves?
According to the latest rumor provided in the November issue of PSM3, Capcom may have asked Spark Unlimited to revive and reboot an unnamed adventure series. The publication is speculating that the game in question may just be Onimusha.
While this unconfirmed report is just that; unconfirmed, Capcom has recently expressed interest in the return of the franchise.
Back in 2010, Capcom’s vice president of strategic planning & business development, Christian Svensson, did leave the door wide open for the future of the series.
“…It [Onimusha] is not forgotten internally, there are discussions that go on, but I don’t think anyone has sort has come up with the ‘that’s it’ idea of how to get the game back up to 3 or 4 million units.” Svensson told IGN at the time. “You may see some things of the brand pop up in the future, I can’t say what, but there are certainly discussions about it.”
