for the new FOMA®902i series mobile phones

CAPCOM is pleased to announce that “Onimusha: Curtain of Darkness” will be released to be in time for the new NTT DoCoMo FOMA902i series mobile phones.

Touted as a brilliant cross between a thrilling slice ‘em up action game and a samurai survival action game, the original Onimusha was released January 25 th , 2001 for the Playstation 2 where it quickly became a million-selling title. Soon thereafter, Onimusha went on to become a hit series spawning multiple sequels and selling a combined 6.9 million units worldwide making it one of CAPCOM's key franchises.

“Onimusha: Curtain of Darkness” is being simultaneously developed alongside its Playstation 2 counterpart “Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams”. Utilizing the same main characters and game world as Dawn of Dreams, “Onimusha: Curtain of Darkness” tells the tale of Hideyasu Yuki, the Blue Demon, and his 4 companions as they fight their way through various missions and out of the Genma's deviously designed traps. Onimusha: Curtain of Darkness has been designed so that previous fans of the series, as well as those new to the series can easily enjoy this unique action-packed title. Utilizing the FOMA902i's high performance 3D graphics capability to its fullest, Onimusha: Curtain of Darkness is a revolutionary 3D action title that compliments the main plot in Dawn of Dreams and expands the world of Onimusha.   Onimusha: Curtain of Darkness is slated for a 902i exclusive release date some time before the release of Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams.
