Zombie Shooting AKB48 Game Also Has Werewolves, But Not AKB48 Werewolves

By Spencer . April 24, 2014 . 5:10am

Bandai Namco Games has a light gun game where Jpop group AKB48 are zombified and you have to shoot them with vaccines. You’re not alone since some AKB48 members are human and you get to pick a partner. Sailor Zombie: AKB48 Arcade Edition is as wacky as it sounds since it also has a rhythm game part with zombie AKB48 stars dancing. "Flying Get" and "Gingham Check" are in the game.


Here’s a video where a couple of AKB48 singers try their own game.



You get a glimpse of other monsters like werewolves in that clip. We’re not sure how the vaccine gun you have is going to help you there and the only way to find out is by playing Sailor Zombie: AKB48 Arcade Edition. The game is out now in arcades throughout Japan.

    Who comes up with this idea? The thought of pointing a gun(real gun or vaccine gun) at those girls is already a blasphemy. Let alone pulling the trigger. This is madness …..

    Just when I thought AKB48 couldn’t get any creeppier…

      Do you mean crappier or creepier?

      • David García Abril

        The latter (I already fixed it, thanks :P) although there can be an argument for both…

    Will try the game IF it is available at my local arcades. The WTF-ness is triggering my morbid curiosity XD

    EDIT: the test play vid is amusing to watch XD if only I knew what they are saying.

    Baby metal seems fitting for this type of game lol

    It’s now officially safe to say Japan just imported and embraced America’s obsession with zombies, and this is a recent evidence for it.

    Nice job, America, for exporting necrophilia (read: obsession towards zombies) to Japan!

    As an AKB fan this sounds hilarious, I hope arcade edition implies we’ll get a console edition.
