Back to the origins of the series
With Onee Chanbara Origin it goes back to the origins of the series. It is a collection of the first two games as an HD remaster. The Onechanbara and The Onechanbara 2 were released for PS2 in Japan in 2004 and 2005. In fact, the first game even made it to Europe as a Zombie Zone, the expanded version of it as Zombie Hunters. The Onechanbara 2 then appeared as Zombie Hunters 2.
The remaster collection follows the story of the two half-sisters Aya and Saki, who have to assert themselves against zombies in a hack ’n slash spectacle. At first enemies, they band together in search of their father. In the fight it is then with the sword and a lot of speed. In addition, the two protagonists can briefly turn into demons. In addition to scarce clothing, the series is also known for a high level of blood and violence.
