Capcom's Onimusha Soul goes social on browser/mobile later this year

The popular PlayStation 2 franchise Onimusha will be given new life later this year, as Capcom's Beeline Interactive (of Smurfs' Village and Snoopy's Street Fair fame) is set to bring Onimusha Soul to browsers sometime later this year. Gamasutra reports that the game will be an RPG, based on the samurai gameplay found in the original PS2 games, that will contain elements of action, combat and even puzzles.

Onimusha Soul's 3D gameplay will come packed with social features and an in-depth community, giving players a chance to make friends with others and even play through the story cooperatively. On the other hand, players will also be given the chance to fight against one another online. A mobile version of the game will come to smartphones some time after the browser game goes online, but no mention was made of whether or not cross-platform play will be available in either the co-op or PvP elements.

As of this writing, Onimusha Soul is set to release on web browsers on June 28, and we'll make sure to let you know as further news about this promising new title comes to light.
