Netflix places out first trailer for Onimusha anime
In the trailer for Onimusha — which is scheduled to launch worldwide on November 2 — we get a peek at our principal character Musashi Miyamoto wrecking store in opposition to the residing and the undead. The sequence is being produced by animation studio Sublimation, most recognized for its work on Dragon’s Dogma. As such, this sequence appears to make use of CG greater than conventional, 2D animation.
The anime sequence will inform an unique story not discovered within the supply materials, in keeping with a press launch by Netflix.
“Set within the early Edo Interval, a time when Japan was transitioning in the direction of peace, and warfare was fading into historical past, an growing old Musashi embarks on a covert mission,” the discharge mentioned. “Armed with the legendary ‘Oni Gauntlet,’ Musashi embarks on an epic journey to conquer the lurking demons.”
So as to add, Musashi is “modeled after the late Japanese display screen icon, Toshiro Mifune,” who’s most well-known for his work on movies comparable to Rashomon, Seven Samurai, and The Samurai Trilogy, the place he performed the true-to-life Musashi Miyamoto.
That is the primary time Onimusha has acquired an animated adaptation since its preliminary launch greater than 20 years in the past. Onimusha: Warlords was first made accessible in 2001 for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox.
