Onee Chanbara Origin To Launch Digitally This October on PlayStation 4 and STEAM

D3 Publisher have recently announced that Onee Chanbara Origin, a High Definition remake of the hack-and-slash action titles that combines elements from the original two games, will launch digitally for the PlayStation 4 and Windows PC (via STEAM) on the 14th October 2020.

Described by D3 Publisher as the “Japanese high-speed action hack ‘n slash zombie slayer game”, Onee Chanbara Origin is a  High Definition remake with an all-new art style, improved graphics and optimised storytelling that combines story elements from the original PlayStation 2 games “The Onechanbara” and “The Onechanbara 2″ into a single experience. Onee Chanbara Origin will also be playable with English and Japanese audio with English subtitles.

Details of what to expect from the overall story and combat have also been provided:

“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 skilful play is rewarded for cooler combinations.

Onee Chanbara Origin will be available digitally on the 14th October 2020 for the PlayStation 4 and Windows PC (via STEAM).
