Information about Onimusha: Dawn Of Dreams

Onimusha: Dawn Of Dreams, released in Japan as Shin Onimusha Dawn of Dreams (新 鬼武者 DAWN OF DREAMS), is the fourth canonical installment of Capcom's Onimusha series, released in Mar. 2006 (12 years ago). Dawn of Dreams focuses on a new protagonist, Soki (灰燼の蒼鬼 a.k.a. Yuki Hideyasu), the second son of Tokugawa Ieyasu.

Story

The game takes place in 1597 (421 years ago), some fifteen years after the defeat of Oda Nobunaga at the end of Onimusha 3: Demon Siege. Nobunaga's vassal, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, takes control of the country, unifying it under one banner and essentially ending the wars that had torn the land apart under his former lord's banner. However, this period of peace ends with several natural disasters acting as an omen of things to come including the appearance of an "Omen Star" in the sky. The Genma return to Japan due to all of the natural disasters and prey on the innocent. Hideyoshi ignores all of the chaos sweeping the land. In addition, Hideyoshi sends massive armies of men and Genma to invade the Asian continent over seas. Two years Hideyoshi uses the Genma armies to gather "cherry trees" across Japan.

Gameplay

Like Onimusha 3: Demon Siege, Dawn of Dreams utilizes a complete 3D rendition of its environment rather than pre-rendered backdrops. In addition, the player is now able to control the camera for most of the game, as opposed to the static camera angles employed within its predecessors. A shop system allows the player to purchase weapons that they can also upgrade along with valuable supplies such as medicine and accessories that convey a variety of benefits. Finally, a second party member now accompanies the player which they can also switch to and control. During gameplay, the second character that is not under the control of the player can be issued commands via the directional buttons (for tactics) with the AI performing them to the best of its abilities. This was also the second canonical game in the series to allow the players to hear either English and Japanese voice-overs, a feature that was omitted in both the second and third games. (This feature seems to be strangely missing from the PAL version of the game.)

Characters

  • Sōki (蒼鬼, Sōki): A strong warrior who possesses the dark power of the Oni, referred as the Blue Oni. Having learned about Hideyoshi's insidious scheme, he sets out on a journey to burn the Genma trees and defeat the Genma running rampant across the land. Wielding two swords with such grace, precision and power, Sōki is soon referred to by townsfolk as "Oni of the Ashes" (灰燼の蒼鬼, Kaijin no Sōki). He is also called the "Black Oni" due to his extreme resemblance to the Oni God. Sōki uses a variety of heavy broadswords and katanas. Soki appears as a playable character in the crossover fighting game, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All Stars. In his ending, he was acomppanied by Arthur from Ghouls n' Ghosts who help him defeat Astaroth and the minion. (Voiced by David Beron in English version)
  • Akane Yagyū (柳生茜, Yagyū Akane): A young woman with exceptional skills who carries on the name of the famous Yagyū clan, possessing the rare Eye of the Oni trait. Prior to the beginning of the game itself, Akane is assigned the duty of hunting down Munenori Yagyū to restore her clan's honor. Assuming the name of Jubei (十兵, Jubei), Akane hears of Soki's deeds and finds him at the Plains Outpost at Suruga to defeat him. But after losing to him, she joins him in his fight against the Genma. Near the end of the game, she is depicted wearing eye patch to cover her Oni Eye. Akane's swift, iaijutsu-like style of attack is similar to that of Kaede from Onimusha: Warlords. At one point in the game, Akane is confused as to whether she is romantically interested in Sōki, or he is just her elder 'brother'. Shikomizue swordsticks are her main weapons. Akane Yagyu is the daughter of Yagyu Munetoshi's first son Yagyu Toshikatsu, noted by virtue of her knowledge of Yagyu Seigo-ryu, the style that was incorporated into her brother, Yagyu Toshiyoshi's Owari branch of Yagyu Shinkage-ryu. (Voiced by Nika Futterman in English version)
  • Ohatsu (王初, Ohatsu): Younger sister to Lady Yodo. Since the birth of Hideyori to her older sister, Ohatsu has been very troubled by the change she has noticed in the two. Friends since childhood, Ohatsu holds intense feelings for Hideyasu. She is an expert marksman under her mentor, Magoichi Saika of Onimusha 2, able to use variety of firearms as well as explosives and a grapple hook. In the aftermath, she married to a noble of a Kyoto house. (Voiced by Nika Futterman in English version)
  • Roberto Frois: A Christian missionary born to a Japanese mother and Spanish father. After being betrayed by Luís Fróis, who was possessed by a Genma who tried to use him as an experiment, Roberto is now on a mission of pure revenge. Roberto's weapon of choice are his enhanced arms and fists, capable of numerous destructive boxing combinations. Roberto's gauntlets are based on the Christian archangels, Raphael, Uriel, Gabriel and Michael. Ordered from weakest gauntlet to strongest respectively. In the end, Roberto leaves for Spain to battle the Genma there so his country wouldn't suffer as Japan had. (Voiced by Juan Monsalvez in English version)
  • Tenkai Nankobo (南光坊 天海, Nankobo Tenkai): A mysterious monk residing at the ruins of the temple on Mt. Hiei, he senses an evil starting to spread across the land and eventually discovers Hideyoshi Toyotomi's bold and insidious scheme. He then sets out on a journey to find one who possesses the power of Oni to help him bring Hideyoshi down. He uses pole arms that are named after Hindu deities for example, Varuna, Indra, and Rakshasa. Tenkai's skills are based on Buddhist and Hindu terminology, such as Enlightenment and Nirvana. During the game's end credits it is revealed that Tenkai is none other than Samanosuke Akechi. (Voiced by Joshua Keaton in English version)
  • Minokichi (蓑吉): A bagworm creature who aids Sōki with instant "teleported" travel, insight on the various creatures & places they traverse, and quips about the allies they eventually obtain. (Voiced by Brianne Siddall in English version)
  • Arin: A girl with mysterious powers and a nun-like quality who travels with Tenkai, during the game's credits Arin is revealed to be Ako. (Voiced by Tara Strong in English version)
  • Toyotomi Hideyoshi (豊臣 秀吉): Formerly known as Tokichiro Kinoshita, he succeeded Nobunaga in not only setting up the new government of Japan, but in league with the Genma to resurrect Fortinbras. However, Hideyoshi dies fighting Sōki in a suit of Genma armor.
  • Mitsunari Ishida (石田 三成, Ishida Mitsunari): Hideyoshi's retainer, who is actually Claudius of the three Genma Triumvirate who intend to resurrect Fortinbras. Upon being revived, Caludias reveals his true form being a Mukade Genma before slain by Tenkai. (Voiced by Alastair Duncan in English version)
  • Luís Fróis: Roberto's guardian who betrayed him after becoming the Genma high priest/scientist Rosencrantz, one of the three Genma Triumvirate bend on the resurrection of Fortinbras. Once revived, he assumes his true form, a giant fly demon, before slain by Roberto.
  • Lady Yodo (淀殿, Yodo-dono): The daughter of Oyu who became a royal concubine to Hideyoshi and High Priestess Ophelia, one of the three Genma Triumvirate bend on the resurrection of Fortinbras. Her true form being a humanoid mantis Genma before slain by Ohatsu.
  • Danemon (右衛門, Danemon): A Genma samurai who battled Sōki and died at his hands.
  • Sakon Shima (島 左近): A human made into a Genma general after his mind is twisted and brainwashed by Ophelia. He fought Sōki and company until he was defeated at the Port of Sekai. Once defeated, Tenkai Nankoboo used purification skills to free Sakon of the Genmas' hold over him.
  • Munenori Yagyū (柳生宗矩, Yagyū Munenori): A member of the Yagyū whose heinous acts in betraying in joining the Genma and killing his kin are the reason Jubei accepts the task to capture her uncle dead or alive. However, though she defeat him, Munenori lived long enough to make a vain assassination attempt on Fortinbras that cost him his life. (Voiced by Joshua Keaton in English version)
  • Fortinbras: He's the main antagonist, and the Genma Lord, also known the God of Light or the White Serpent. He is portrayed as a gargantuan serpent-like demon lord, with a pair of large wings intact on his back and a third eye on top of his head. He attempted to rule the world with aid from Oda Nobunaga, only to be slain by Samanosuke Akechi. However, Fortinbras is eventually resurrected by the Genma Triumvirate, assuming his true form, a human-like figure resembling a European noble in dress and sporting a pocket watch who has been viewing the events of the game before revealing himself. Though he was the most powerful, Fortinbras died against Sōki and his friends.
