D3 Publisher is working with Shade, the developers behind Vita game Assault Gunners (pictured), on a new girls action game. Instead of swords, Bullet Girls has guns and the characters are high school girls in the Ranger Corps. Players will use different weapons including handguns, rifles, shotguns, and a recoilless rifle in the game.

 

Famitsu reports the touch screen is used during interrogation scenes and there is some kind of clothes destruction system in the game. Some of the voice actors in Bullet Girls have been announced:

 

Aya Suzaki (Nana in Akiba’s Trip: Undead and Undressed)

Aya Uchida (Io in Devil Survivor 2)

Kaori Fukuhara (Pearl Fey in Ace Attorney)

Sachika Misawa (Shizuku in Akiba’s Trip: Undead and Undressed)

 

Bullet Girls is scheduled to come out on August 28 and will cost 6,269 yen.

    Want. Localize this.

    I was expecting anthropomorphized bullets as moe girls (not surprised if it already exists).
    Ah oh well, it will surely happen soon enough (or did it!?!?!)

    This will probably be the only Shooter game I’m gonna play. Probably.

  • Darkrise

    Still waitin’ on that Onechanbara Z localization. =/

      If NB don’t announce it at E3 then I would guess it’s dead in the water by now. You can import the cheap re-release now.

          I imported it on release; it’s pretty English friendly. The menus are actually in English (though item names and descriptions aren’t, so you’ll have to either look up a guide for them or guess what you’re buying with the ingame money) and there’s no complex objectives, usually just ‘kill everything in this area’ and ‘go forward’ which are both self-explanatory. Pretty fun game, though, it’ll appeal to fans of the Devil May Cry series. The self-shadowing is balls on the PS3, though, and the (allegedly pretty bad anyway) co-op mode was taken out, but that’s what you get with a 360-maining developer.

          Oh, though there are somewhat more complex side-objectives that function a bit like achievements that unlock stuff (you have to complete a number of them to unlock NoNoNo for example). There’s a guide somewhere or other online that’s translated them all, though, you’ll find it with our pal Google.

    Guns and schoolgirls? Sold. Just because it sounds like an awesome plot :P

    Gotta love the love Vita is getting in Japan! Hope it gets to the west eventually.

    EDIT:
    I’m sure some would like this but the art style ain’t my thing. Let’s just see how the game looked like. Perhaps it would be good.

    • Go2hell66

      Damn was hoping for something a little closer to onechanbara

    • Kornelious

      THATS SO FREAKING CUTE…….(Cough) Y’know in a manly way
      (๑→‿ฺ←๑)

    • Juan Andrés Valencia

      It’s like an Angel Beats action game.

  • Kumiko Akimoto

    Yes please

  • ztype

    Yet ANOTHER reason I need a Vita…

  • tubers
    • Kazuma Kazzie Kaz Kaz

      Either that’s a very human looking pet, or something more sinister is going on here…

    hey a D3 article with a screenshot with no boobs all over the screen, never tought possible!

    Onechanbara Z Kagura was gorgeous, especially for a D3 “budget” game. It had great-looking character models; a perfect hybrid of realistic + stylized, tons of stuff going onscreen (VFX and character models), and it was all lit well (sounds lame, but seriously, a ton of Japanese games are still lit like PS2 titles). I was hoping that those developers would be some of the first to jump up to the PS4… Japan could use more devs who are as technically savvy as them.
