Onimusha (Japanese: 鬼武者, literally "Oni Warrior") is a PlayStation 2 action-adventure game series by Capcom. In each game, the protagonist wields the power of the Oni enabling them to fight the Genma, the main enemy of the series. The game makes use of the historic figures that shaped Japan’s history, retelling their stories with supernatural elements. Each game is a combination of third person combat and puzzle solving. Onimusha is Capcom's 4th biggest franchise, behind the Resident Evil, Mega Man and Street Fighter series respectively (with Devil May Cry as a fifth one). The series has sold 6.9 million copies to date, although these sales may have increased since the U.S. and European releases of Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams.
