Onee Chanbara games are a lot like school in the summertime- no class. Yet, the “cowboy ninja girl vs zombie horde” centered game series, birthed on the PS2 in 2004, has seen releases on everything from cell phones to the Xbox 360 to even the big screen. Somebody out there must be buying these games, and starting sometime in 2009, Wii owning fans of flesh (of both the pink female and rotten corpse varieties) will finally get their chance to be “a somebody”.
Why is it that the series hasn’t made it to the States before now? Are US Wii owners that much more accepting of corpse killing, katana wielding hookers than the US PS2 and 360 install base? Only time and accumulative sales data will tell.
