Onechanbara Z2: Chaos – Review

There is something about underdressed girls with sharp weapons fighting the forces of the undead that just seems to get people going. If that wasn’t the case, then how is it that Onechanbara has a long lineage of over ten games spanning from 2004 all the way up until 2015? Surely Tamsoft, the company behind the series’ development, are doing something right otherwise they wouldn’t have been given the money to continue developing additions to the series for all these years. It must be something primal within us, to want to mix sexuality with brutality…surely. Regardless, it seems to work, so I wont try to dissect it any more than I should. Instead, I should try to enjoy it for exactly what it is: A sexy gore-fest. Mindscape Australia, in conjunction with NIS America (Europe), have recently released Onechanbara Z2: Chaos across both Australia and New Zealand, and us here at SnapThirty have been given the mighty pleasure of reviewing it thanks to said companies. It’s a title I never once thought of playing, having seen …

Undead Beware – Onechanbara Z2 Chaos Reveals New Trailer

Ah zombies. That most Romero of monsters that has clawed into almost as many forms of media as poor humans within said media. Which is to say a lot…there are a lot of zombie products out there. Even the concept of noticeably attractive zombie slayers, swathing through hordes of the undead isn’t exactly a new concept by this point.

Choose your bikini clad warrior and show the plethora of undead former-humans the ol’ what for. Dismemberment and deliberately angled camera shots await in a world where the word inhibition must never have existed, or it’s long dead if it ever did. So, following that lead, why not kill a bunch more stuff. It’s not technically bad, on account of enemies being undead and all…so go wild. And remember to have fun, that’s what really matters in an apocalyptic situation after all. -30-

The Four Ladies of the Apocalypse – Onechanbara Z2: Chaos Heads to Europe

Hordes of undead. Writhing masses of what were once human beings, out now only to feast on the brains of the living…or just maul them, or purposefully turn them, or whatever it is zombies do nowadays. Now that I think abot it, zombies are not exclusively of the dead variety nowadays, what with the advent of contagion plotlines and all. Look, what I’m getting at is that zombie apocalypses are frightening things and if there was one word you would never use to describe one, it would be sexy…at least I hope you wouldn’t. But, as it so often does, Japan has said nay to this preconception and has decided to enlighten the West with a little game known as Onechanbara Z2: Chaos. Prepare for some conflicting emotions people because these ladies take all common sense regarding appropriate apocalypse fashion and throw it out the window, leaving them with very little, which they then wear. Not content with merely standing out due to their risqué garb, the Bikini Zombie Squad deal out re-death in a …
