D3 Publisher announced in this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine a new game called Schoolgirl Zombie Hunter, an upcoming PS4 title that takes place in the same world of the Onechanbara series. [Thanks, Hachima.]
At Kirisaku High School, a prestigious school versed in both literary and military arts, a sudden mass zombie outbreak occurred. Closed from the outside world, five high school girls must grab weapons and fight in order to survive.
The game takes place in the same world setting as the Onechanbara series, and the feature’s “sexy elements” will also be abundant in the upcoming action shooter by Tamsoft.
Here are the five main girls:
Risa Kubota (CV: Saori Onishi)
Weapon: Assault Rifle/Naginata
Sayuri Akiba (CV: Asuka Ogame)
Weapon: Handgun/Wooden Sword
Mayaya Himeji (CV: Chinami Hashimoto)
Enami Kamijo (CV: Sayaka Senbongi)
Weapon: Sniper Rifle/Kick Attacks
Rei Kanazaki (CV: Kaori Ishihara)
Anna from the Onechanbara games will also make an apperance. She’ll help by using a drone to deliver supplies and weapons.
The game also features a costume break system where outfits get torn to shreds as the girls get attacked by zombies. The more damage they take, the more their outfits get torn up, and the final stage will have them in their underwear. These zombies will also react when outfits get taken off, for some reason. You can also use outfits that you take off as a decoy.
Schoolgirl Zombie Hunter releases in Japan on January 12, 2017 for PlayStation 4. It’ll be available for 6,980 yen, and its development currently sits at 70% complete.
