Onee Chanbara Origin, the high-speed action hack ‘n’ slash zombie slayer game from leading Japanese publisher D3PUBLISHER and developer Tamsoft, launches digitally in North America and Europe on October 14 for PlayStation 4 and Windows PC via Steam.
Onee Chanbara Origin is a complete HD remake with new art style graphics and optimized storytelling, combining both The Onechanbara and The Onechanbara 2 games, which were originally released for PlayStation 2 in 2004 and 2005 respectively.
Now featuring renewed main character designs, redesigned by Katsumi Enami, the Onechanbara series designer, Onee Chanbara Origin tells a new interpretation of Aya and Saki’s story.
In the game, the two half-sisters must overcome their rivalry against one another and work together to find 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, 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. Occasionally, players may even transform into demons for short bursts of added power and energy at the 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.
