Onee Chanbara Origin Coming to PS4 and PC in October 2020

Leading Japanese Games Publisher D3Publisher recently announced that the Japanese high-speed action hack ‘n slash zombie slayer video game Onee Chanbara Origin will be coming to North America and Europe next month.

The popular Japanese high-speed action video game is coming to North America and Europe in digital form this coming Oct. 14 for PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam.

The game will be a complete HD remake of the original with all new art style visuals and optimized storytelling. It will combine both The Onechanbara and The Onechanbara 2 games, which were released way back in 2004 and 2005.

The new version will have renewed main character designs, which were redesigned by main character Onechanbara Series Designer Katsumi Enami. Origin will tell a new interpretation of the story of the two half-sisters, Aya and Saki, bound by mutual hatred and locked in a brutal fight to the death. They eventually overcome their cruel fate and fight alongside one another in order to find their father.

About the game:

“Onee Chanbara Origin” follows the zombie-hunters, Aya and Saki’s fate into destroying each other and leads into the second of the series, “The Onechanbara 2”. After the sisters overcome their cruel fate in killing one another, they overcome their rivalry against one another and ally together to depart on their journey of finding their father, Oboro, after he leaves behind a message that names “Eva” as the mastermind behind his wife’s death and all of the chaos that ensued between the two sisters, including the vice that made Saki insane and hell-bent on avenging her mother. Little do they know they are coming even closer to the truth and their true enemy.

Play as a zombie hunter and battle through the stages with high-speed real-time swordplay, completing objectives and tasks while hacking and brawling through hordes of the Undead. Each character’s weapons become progressively covered in blood as players fight off zombies in gruesome detail. Occasionally, players may even transform into demons for short bursts of added power and energy with the downside cost of life energy. Each zombie hunter has her own unique abilities, and skillful play is rewarded for cooler combinations. Players can enjoy the game with full English voice-acting or play through with the original Japanese performances with English subtitles.
