Rockin’ out with Onee Chanbara Origin on PS4 and PC

Monster mashing mayhem goes global

It’s taken almost a full year, but the latest entry in sexy-slaying franchise Onechanbara is finally available to purchase on western shores. Originally released in Japan in December 2019, Onee Chanbara Origin is finally available to download now on PS4 and PC in North America and Europe.

Onee Chanbara Origin is a reimagining of the original Onechanbara and Onechanbara 2 games, which launched on PS2 in 2004 and 2005 respectively. Origin melds both action titles into one game, rewriting the story in order to create a singular adventure. Origin also features HD visuals and optimised character models in keeping with the series’ current tech.

For anyone yet to experience this niche series, the Onechanbara games generally consist of sexy anime heroes hack ‘n’ slashing their way through armies of the undead. Each character has their own unique skills and abilities, and can transform into raging demons when things get a little sticky. Speaking of which, Onechanbara takes its blood-letting pretty seriously, with rainstorms of claret legitimately being one of the franchise’s key tropes.

Bring an umbrella.
