Dawn Of Dreams Gets Golden Reel For Best Sound Edit

Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams, the latest chapter in the Onimusha series, has received the MPSE 2006 Golden Reel Award for Best Sound Editing. The epic action game for the PlayStation 2 was bestowed the prestigious honor at the 53rd MPSE awards ceremony held on March 4, 2006 at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. Chosen by members of the motion picture and television industry, each year the MPSE presents the Golden Reel Awards which acknowledges the year’s best work in the various areas of sound editing for movies, television, home video and computer entertainment.

Based on the Onimusha franchise, Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams focuses on the destiny of a new hero whose courage and fortitude must withstand the adversaries that wait in ancient feudal Japan. Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams begins approximately 15 years following the annihilation of the infamous Japanese warlord Oda Nobunaga at Honno Temple. Another dark shadow now looms over Japan as Nobunaga’s successor, Hideyoshi Toyotomi, has decided to align himself with the evil Genma forces.

In this new Onimusha game, players assume the role of Soki, a young warrior who possesses incredible power, along with several other cohorts to try and thwart Hideyoshi’s pursuit for power. This latest iteration exceeds its predecessors and continues the franchise’s artistic excellence by delivering an ambitious saga with more intense gameplay, expansive environment and a new fighting system; creating a deeper and gripping experience that the series is known to deliver.

“It is an honor to be recognized for the team’s efforts in sound editing alongside other talented groups from the motion picture and television industry,” said Yoshinori Ono, producer, Capcom Co., Ltd. “We take great pride in the production effort that we put behind Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams and I am thrilled this project was highly regarded for its technological merits in sound.”
