Lovers of 3D hack and slash action games, and followers of the cult Onechanbara series will be pleased to know that Onechanbara Z2: Chaos, the latest in the bikini-clad zombie slaying action series, will be making its way to North America on July 21. XSeed Games will be handling the North American distribution of the game, while NIS America will be handling the PAL version for European players. The full press release can be viewed below, with screenshots and character art included.
Torrance, Calif. – July 1, 2015 – XSEED Games, the independent-minded console publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., today announced that Onechanbara Z2: Chaos, the newest entry in the high-octane Onechanbara series, will arrive in North America exclusively for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system on July 21st. The game will be available digitally via the PlayStation®Store for $39.99, as well as in a limited “Banana Split” retail release for $49.99, which will include a soundtrack CD containing almost a full 80 minutes of music from both this game and its Japan-only predecessor, Onechanbara Z: Kagura, an 80-page softcover “Behind the Bikini” book also featuring artwork and backstory from both games, and a code to download the “Strawberries & Banana” premium DLC costume.
The latest iteration of the Onechanbara sexy zombie slayer series ups the ante with two sets of buxom vampire sisters and over a dozen stages of high-octane real-time swordplay featuring hordes of zombies—not to mention wildly inventive methods of dispatching these undead opponents. Players will square off against the undead in various worldwide locations, with limbs and blood flying every which way by means of physical attacks and acrobatic maneuvers alike, occasionally transforming into a demon for short bursts of added power and speed at the cost of life energy. Each of the four members of this “Zombie Punitive Force” has her own unique abilities, and skillful play is rewarded with orbs that can be exchanged for upgraded weapons and outfits. For the first time in the series, players can enjoy the game with full English voice-acting or play through with the original Japanese performances.
Developed by D3 Publisher and Tamsoft, Onechanbara Z2: Chaos will be coming exclusively to the PS4™ in North America. This title has been rated “M” for Mature by the ESRB. NIS America will be publishing the PAL version of Onechanbara Z2: Chaos.
To celebrate this announcement, XSEED Games is sharing a loaded package of assets including character art and screenshots.
