We have an update to last week’s Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad trademark research. Siliconera reader Jeff D. sent over a tip with a link (thanks!!) to an official page for what appears to be the US version Onechanbara VorteX. It’s going to be called Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad in North America. The product page only lists Aya and Saki as playable characters. The Japanese version includes others like Anna, she uses guns, and Misery, she uses a spike filled blade. Both may be announced at a later date.
Actually, D3 Publisher hasn’t even properly announced the game. You can only find it by browsing their Xbox 360 listings and the product page is sitting underneath Earth Defense Force 2017. So any questions about the downloadable content being part of the US version and “the Legend of Onechanbara” will have to wait for another day. Don’t worry, dress up mode is still in the US version.
