ONIMUSHA 2 FIGURES ON DISPLAY AT E3

Capcom to Display Products at their Booth May 22-24

May 17, 2002

















Anyone attending E3 in Los Angeles next week, May 22-24, will have an opportunity to preview McFarlane Toys' Onimusha 2: Samurai's Destiny action figures at the Capcom booth.

    The figures are based on the sequel to Onimusha, one of the top-selling PS2 games of all time. Ten years after the lone swordsman, Samanosuke, rose up against an army of demon warriors, Nobunaga's evil campaign continues to wreak havoc across feudal Japan. A young warrior, Jubei, returns home to his remote and once-vibrant village, now in ruins, destroyed by Nobunaga's minions. With vengeance in his heart, Jubei launches upon an epic and magical quest, which will reveal his ultimate destiny. Earn the respect of confidants along the way to help Jubei battle demons, monstrous bosses, overcome ingenious puzzles and defeat Nobunaga's pillaging hordes.

McFarlane Toys' highly detailed action figures let you re-create the battle in 3D detail:




  • YAGYU JUBEI is the game's new hero and legendary Samurai warrior.

  • OYU FROM ODANI is a beautiful and mysterious sword specialist.

  • FUMA KOTARO is a young fighter who expertly wields two battle knives.

  • SAIGA MAGOICHI is a scientist who is pretty handy with both a sword and a gun.

  • ODA NOBUNAGA is an evil villain who controls a vast legion of demons.

  • GOGANDANTES is an armored sword-wielder with a cape and interesting face paint.




    E3, or Electronic Entertainment Expo, is the premiere event for the interactive entertainment industry, held annually in Los Angeles. The trade-show event is only open to qualified industry representatives.

    These figures, based on Capcom's M-rated game, will be available in August, the same month as the PS2 game's scheduled release. For more info on E3, go to http://www.e3expo.com. For more Onimusha 2 info, check out http://www.capcom.com/oni2/oni2_teaser.htm.
