I like the sound of this, a multiplayer beat em up set in the Onimusha universe... "Perhaps as a means of holding fans over until the March 2004 release date of Onimusha 3, Capcom used the press conference to also unveil Onimusha Buraiden, a one to four player fighting game set in the Onimusha universe. The game allows players to select from previous cast members, including the likes of Akechi Samanosuke, Yagyu Jubei and Kaede, as well as villains. Gameplay specifics have yet to be revealed, but it was mentioned at the press conference that the fighting system would be identical to that of the game proper. We were able to make one observation: fighting seems to take place on multiple different planes a la Treasure's classic Yu Yu Hakusho and Guardian Heroes. In those games, you were free to fight against enemies in your plane, but to fight other enemies you had to switch to their plane."
