That's interesting. Capcom's latest game, "Onimusha: Warlords" has you playing a samurai fighting against demons. One of the bonuses of the game lets you fight while wearing a Panda Suit. Perhaps it's a copycat sort of thing.

I have been watching Japanese news broadcasts for the last few weeks, and I have seen quite a bit about this story. I have yet to see anyone mention anything about a panda. They showed hats that were definitly foxes. I wrote more than a smidgen about this on my page the other day, and they focused so much on the hat I don't think I can be wrong.

I just beat Onimusha Warlords and it was so good. Anybody know how to unlock the Panda costume? I got a "B" ranking, and it unlocked a preview movie for Onimushu 2. Likewise anybody know what the fluorite is supposed to do? It never kicked in, and that was the thing I was missing the most of at the end of the game. I did win the secret final sword, and I thought that was pretty good without having resorted to looking for cheats. I am old you see.

Since you asked, thirteen...

To get the Panda Suit, you have to collect a certain amount of Fluorite. If you can find all 20 of them before the endgame, you'll be rewarded with the Oni-Spirits mini game.

The Fluorite itself does nothing, but collecting it goes towards what bonuses you'll receive when you finish the game.

If you get through all 12 stages of the Oni Spirits game, you'll be allowed to start your next game with the Bishamon Sword and unlimited magic for all of the weapons.

I noticed last night that I did find enough to unlock the costume, and it is mighty wierd to see in action. I want to see that mini-game pretty bad, so I am giving it another go around. The Bishamon Sword is pretty cool to have, I imagine it will make for a much shorter game.
