Capcom is set to release its first ever browser-based game later this year, as part of its push into the social and mobile gaming spaces. The company first established its Beeline mobile gaming subsidiary last year, and has gone on to have success with mobile releases such as Smurfs' Village and Snoopy's Street Fair. This new push into browser gaming boosts Capcom's plans to grow in the social gaming space. Onimusha Soul will be an RPG browser game based on the PlayStation 2 Onimusha samurai survival series, and will feature both action and puzzle elements. Utilizing the Unity 3D engine for its visuals, Onimusha Soul also boasts a number of community and social gaming elements, with players able to band together and play through the story co-operatively, or fight against each other online. The game will be released on June 28 for web browsers, and later in the year on smartphones. Capcom also revealed that the Onimusha series has now seen over 7.9 million units sold across all versions since the original release for PS2 in 2001.
