I see alot of gamers here asking questions about why 2019 Onimusha Warlords Remastered is getting a new soundtrack. I've done the research and I am sharing with you guys all the ugly details. The original soundtrack of onimusha is a legal mess as you can see:

It's a real shame, Onimusha 1 and 2 soundtrack are both so good.

Samanosuke's theme from 1 and Ekei's theme from 2 in particular are standouts for me.

I requested to make this a sticky. This is useful information so we won't have 20 different posts asking why the different soundtrack. Keep posting links here and let's sticky this

This is the real legit composer of 2001 Onimusha Warlords. The other dude was a fake. Now that we know who the real legit Onimusha composer is, it should not even be hard to retain all the original music and credit the legit real composer Takashi in the credits. But Capcom feels too imbarrased from the situation and wants to scrap all the entire original Soundtrack

It's always crappy to find out stuff like this. I'm just happy the soundtracks weren't plagiarized like the various Dragonball ones were. As a result of that, the uber lazy Budokai HD semi-collection had all the songs replaced with ones from other DBZ games and the Budokai 1 and 3 on said collection lost a lot of their identity, especially as the replacement tracks didn't go with anything well.

Here's hoping Capcom keep the original songs and alter the ending scroll to credit to proper composer/s rather than doing the wrong thing and replacing them.

It looks like they are just doing a full replacement of the original soundtrack. Everything is being changed
