Capcom girls reinvisioned as samurais and ninjas in Japanese cell phone game Onimusha Soul

Posted by Nicholas 'MajinTenshinhan' Taylor • August 10, 2013 at 10:09 a.m. PDT
A cell phone-only game in Japan, Onimusha Soul, borrows a lot of characters from other Capcom games and inserts them into Onimusha's feudal Japanese setting, which yields interesting results.

Below, you will find samurai-inspired artwork for lots of famous fighting game characters like Chun-Li, Cammy, Morrigan, Felicia, Sakura and even non-fighting game characters that have appeared in the VS series, such as Tron Bonne and Trish.

We selected the characters relevant to fighting games to post here, but if you want to see more, you can check out the article that originally tipped us off to this interesting crossover, over at Kotaku.

Here are a few characters to get you started off.

Hit the jump to check out some more of Capcom's heroines dressed in feudal Japanese garb.

SeoDRIFT said on August 10, 2013 at 10:56 a.m.

I guess I might stand on my own for this one but I 'm getting tired of all these cross overs capcom is doing. I know its a safe way to make games making stuff people are familiar with but I really want a cool new IP fighting game from them...

#13
Batmang said on August 10, 2013 at 10:58 a.m.

Felicia's wearing clothes? Something is terribly wrong here.

#14
yoshisixtyfour said on August 10, 2013 at 10:59 a.m.

There is so much Kreygasm here. Dat Tron, Dat Lillit, Dat Sakura, Dat Ibuki.
But yeah idk it's doesn't sound all that great, the actual game anyway.

#15
gammabolt17 said on August 10, 2013 at 10:59 a.m.

Why can this not be an actual console game? This is amazing.

Kreygasm level over 9000 !

Captainbuttocks said on August 10, 2013 at 11:12 a.m.

These are so sick. The details make them really great.

Interesting how the background pictures look like they are almost the same as each picture, but they have differences.

#20
spotlesseden said on August 10, 2013 at 11:21 a.m.

Morrigan the best.

#21
Spaghetti_Time said on August 10, 2013 at 11:23 a.m.

Love the attention to detail, especially on Rose (that one must have taken a while) and Felicia with a bow on her head HNNNNNNNNNNNNNG.

Dat Tron tho <3

#22
ZeDudd said on August 10, 2013 at 11:24 a.m.

Actual game doesn't sound that great, but DAYUM, those artworks are great!!

I like these designs.

Dravidian said on August 10, 2013 at 11:36 a.m.

Rose looks like something out of Jojo's. In a good way of course.

#28
suicidali said on August 10, 2013 at 11:46 a.m.

I knew of some of these already, though I didn't know there were ones of Ingrid and Tron.
Effing saved!

Hsien-Ko <3
i wanted to see Juri in this kind of art

#31
sfkm2 said on August 10, 2013 at 11:55 a.m.

Ingrid in the house!

#32
Snow said on August 10, 2013 at 11:57 a.m.

Is the last one on the bottom right supposed to be Jill?

#33
sfkm2 said on August 10, 2013 at 11:58 a.m.

@33 - That's Trish

#34
Necreon said on August 10, 2013 at 12:05 p.m.

Where can I get these in HD resulotion? :O

The impossible just happend, Viper became even hotter than before.

#35
Joutari said on August 10, 2013 at 12:18 p.m.

Wasn't this like some sort of chinese online card game?

#36
Murdurus said on August 10, 2013 at 12:24 p.m.

I really like the Rose and Chun. Most of the other ones doesn't seem like too much has changed between their originals and their rework such as Sakura and Viper. Still though, it's cool to see imaginative artwork.

#37
xShonuffx said on August 10, 2013 at 12:33 p.m.

Why does Clair look like she is pregnant or something?

#38
PteraBite said on August 10, 2013 at 12:41 p.m.

No Makoto? :(

SAMURAI said on August 10, 2013 at 12:43 p.m.

The correct plural form of samurai is samurai, not samurais. I know because I am a samurai.

And characters of onimusha? Akane " Jubei" Yagyu, Ohatsu, Kaede...

#42
gammabolt17 said on August 10, 2013 at 12:52 p.m.

@26

That chick has no spine. Her doing Spiral Arrows make so much more sense now lol

Felicia's tit-fur freaks me out just a lil.

Her normal tit-fur looks maintained.

#43
ShinAkiraDesu said on August 10, 2013 at 12:57 p.m.

these are soo freaking awesome, this should be a theme costume pack for USF4

#44
HooliganComboFTW said on August 10, 2013 at 12:58 p.m.

Felicia would wear clothes before. Usually dressed up as a nun in one of the games if I recall.

#45
JIHADJOE said on August 10, 2013 at 1:04 p.m.

Armor Chun and Cammy!

Viper's shoulder padded blazer makes an awesome chest armor.

Also pretty cool how Ibuki needed so little change here. I guess her original style already fits in with the Ninjas and Samurais theme.

#46
MetroCityPub said on August 10, 2013 at 1:17 p.m.

Hsien-Ko/Lei-lei showing more skin? As a necrophiliac, I approve.

#47
Kijui said on August 10, 2013 at 1:17 p.m.

Felicia <3.... Ahem, I mean... They should be wearing Saikyo gear instead... yeah... that...

#48
crispylinks77 said on August 10, 2013 at 1:17 p.m.

Is there higher quality versions so we can use as wallpapers?

#49
samuraix025 said on August 10, 2013 at 1:31 p.m.

@2 yeah because we all know capcom should be working on one game at a time... get outta hea.

#50
cooldrew198 said on August 10, 2013 at 1:35 p.m.

INGRID!!! EEEEEEEEEEEH!! Hooray Capcom hasn't forgotten XD Ibuki's is essentially her normal outfit with her top ripped and a couple more accessories, but cool nonetheless.

#51
xBMxSage said on August 10, 2013 at 2:03 p.m.

These are just amazing. They'd make wonderful DLC costumes.

Awesome stuff! Kreygasm

#55
JesseRobles said on August 10, 2013 at 2:44 p.m.

The outfits are GORGEOUS and with so many beautiful details. My favorite is Rose. And I was surprised to see Ingrid there!

#56
Topaz said on August 10, 2013 at 2:44 p.m.

Where the hell is Makoto?? Actually, maybe it's for the best that she's not here. Cammy's backbone is shattered...

#57
HeatEXTEND said on August 10, 2013 at 2:56 p.m.

Gotta love how they went with the upskirt for Sakura in light of NOT ENUFF BEWBS

#62
irrenmann said on August 10, 2013 at 3:49 p.m.

+1 for letting Rose actually smile instead of duckfacing

#63
XxAngelChunLixX said on August 10, 2013 at 3:50 p.m.

I didn't even recognize Chun!! I am loving the colors on Cammy, (although you wish her boobs were that big). I just want to give Lilith a hug. Rose's has so much detail.

I'm also loving Felicia's, Trish's, Hsien-Ko's and Morrigan's without those tights. Same with Ibuki's, you wish her boobs were that big..<.<"

#64
JiCi said on August 10, 2013 at 3:57 p.m.

Hopefully, they'll add Nilin, Juri, Elena, Makoto, Ruby Hearts, Tracy and Roll to the mix soon :)

#65

Wardog said on August 10, 2013 at 4:33 p.m.

Do there's hope for a new onimusha game. I thought Capcom forgot about that series. Also come out with a HD collection! Its time for one Capcom , its Time.

cinnamonjihad said on August 10, 2013 at 4:35 p.m.

I would love HD wallpapers too....

#69
chipndip said on August 10, 2013 at 4:42 p.m.

They seem a bit over-complicated, but they aren't bad for what they're worth.

Also, BB Hood in samurai mode = blue hood with bells. No sword, no ginseng, no arrows, no armor. Just a blue hood and bells. Yup. Good to know. xD

#70
FightDirty said on August 10, 2013 at 5:04 p.m.

Not bad. I like. I don't waste much time with cellphone games but the concept is cool none the less.
