Aya and Saki are back. The Onee Chanbara Origin PS4 HD remake from D3 Publisher is heading westward, and it will be accompanied by a PC port. Appropriately enough, the zombie-killing game will show up ahead of Halloween on October 14, 2020.
For those who might only just be learning about it, Onee Chanbara Origin brings the PS2 games The Onechanbara and The Onechanbara 2 to more modern platforms. Ahead of the Japanese release, there was even a trailer comparing the original games to the remake. In addition to the gameplay you expect, where you follow half-sisters Aya and Saki as they deal with zombies, their rivalry, and their missing father, it adds a new Trance Status, new looks, and a new character, Lei. There will the option to play through the game with the original Japanese voice acting and English subtitles, or someone could choose to go with English voice acting.
Here’s the first trailer for the HD remake of these two The Onechanbara games.
Here are some official character designs for Aya, Saki, and Lei.
And here are some new Onee Chanbara Origin screenshots.
