In the eighties I couldn’t imagine Nintendo approving a game like the Onechanbara, but the blend of blood and bikinis is coming to North American Wiis in 2009. Times have changed, for the better. Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers even keeps a B-rated movie name to match the simple slice and dice action the series is known for. Hopefully, D3 Publisher will give Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers a B-rated price too. Charging $50 for a localized version of Onechanbara R will start the franchise on the wrong foot when it debuts in the USA. Bikini wearing zombie slayers are old news for Europe. The PS2 games have been localized as Zombie Zone and Zombie Hunters.
