Trivia

The original trailer had Jubei wearing an eye patch. He was modeled after the legendary Jubei from Japanese history. Capcom scrapped this and decided to continue the trend of modeling the main character after a famed actor. See more »

"To share is the same as to survive"
28 March 2004 | by Maflores6See all my reviews

Onimusha 2 was a good game. First,it teaches players how to share what they have to others. Second,if you choose to give the gift items that you found and bought including swords and armors to a specific sub character,then that character will help you in times of need.Third, this game provides many choices on events and characters. Finally,this game has many surprises and playing sub characters isn't limited.You just need to trade from the sub characters and they will show up and become playable.

In conclusion, I give this game a 10/10 for the art of patience and creativity.

I also look forward for the next Onimusha. Thanks to the designer and the author for designing this game. Jubei,Samonosuke and the sub characters showed what their true purpose in the story.
