[NSFW] Beard View: Onechanbara Z2: Chaos

‘Two big handfuls of gameplay’

Onechanbara holds a special place in my heart (you know, that thing that throbs and fills with blood). The series has only had two games released stateside, one for the Wii and its prequel for the Xbox 360 a month beforehand, though it has been around since 2004 in Japan and has had releases on various consoles since. 

When I recorded this titular Beard View, it wasn’t yet announced that the game will be coming to North America and Europe, and considering it is a direct sequel to Onechanbara Z: Kagura, it still makes little sense for it to come out here. I mean, if you play Onechanbara Z2: Chaos you’ll all be missing out on at least two large handfuls of story building up to the big, messy climax. 

I was so sure it would never come out here too. I guess I should start making other “never going to happen” predictions, just to see how they turn out. There will never be a sequel to The Order: 1886. The classic series Adventure Island, Joe & Mac, and Bubble Bobble will never see a comeback. There won’t be a mature parody of Splatoon called Spunküm. I’m sure a booth will never be on display at a convention where you have to put your head into a window in a giant boob to play Onechanbaraoh wait.
