Full HD, 60 frames per second sequel due out in October.

Onechanbara Z: Kagura With NoNoNo!

Onechanbara Z2: Chaos is in development at Tamsoft for PlayStation 4, D3 Publisher announced in this week’s Famitsu.

Due out in Japan this October for 7,344 yen, the game is the first full HD 1080p entry in the series, and will run at 60 frames per second.

The game features four characters–Kagura and Saaya (both voiced by Miyuki Sawashiro), Aya (voiced by Yuko Kaida), and Saki (voiced by Nao Takamori)–which players can switch between during gameplay. It will feature a new “Cross Merge Combination Element,” which sees several characters attack at once. And it will utilize the PlayStation 4 touch pad with a new “Quick Time Kill” element, a special attack that can be used against boss enemies.

Onechanbara Z2: Chaos is 70-something percent complete.

Thanks, Re: Zaregoto and Sokuho@Hokanko.

    One of my friends had the 360 one and it seemed like a glitchy mess and some killer whales animation was horrible when it tried to kill you on land. Hope this one is better.

    • Kiryu

      The last game on PS3 was better so this will probably be even better.

      • SuperLuigi

        I never saw the ps3 game in action. Thanks you guys I’ll look into this one more now.

    • Koji Kabuto

      Z Kagura is way better than the first one on 360, so this should be at least as good as that.

  • Gojira Twit

    Is this still a low budget series?

      Does it matter, as long as the game’s fun? Its already confirmed to run smooth as cake :D

  • Sav

    doubt it will get localized but should be decent regardless.

  • Waifu Body Pillow

    PS4 is saved.

  • Porcu Peth

    hope it gets localized

  • jujubee88

    Olalala ;)

    Senran Kagura Estival Versus 1080p 60fps confirmed!!!

    So four playable characters?

    Aya and Saki from the original games

    Kagura and Saaya from Z series?

    I hope they add playable boss characters like Reiko and Misery from the PSP version

    Good stuff!! Onechanbara is alive as ever!

    • FitzpatrickPhillips

      So disappointed that Kagura didn’t let you play as Aya and Saki originally

      • kurosan9712

        DLC only, haha. Because they actually died in the story.

  • Elvick

    If localized, will buy.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Holy shit nice. Kagura was pretty short and the graphics were so choppy along with a horrible frame rate. Hopefully they build on that. I wouldn’t mind a more concrete story too

  • Alter

    who said PS4 got no games ?

    • Anime10121

      Well it doesnt at the moment (nor does the Xbone), but it sure as hell will be getting some awesome ones relatively soon!

    • SegaSaturnSNK

      LMAO! This is awesome man.

      • Budgiecat

        Isnt that .gif originally from some weird religious cult?

        • DrForbidden

          Really? I thought it was from your birthday party last year…

          You really should be inviting me to those, you know. Looks so awesome.

  • DarthBrian


    Best news evar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    LOCALIZE PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Six

      D3 is too busy publishing Cartoon Network games. :/ I can’t imagine this gets localized at all, after how abysmally bad BZS and BSS did.

      • DarthBrian

        NISA, IFI, or XSEED to the rescue!!!!!

        EDIT: Also, I’m sure the reason why BZS and BSS didn’t sell well is the U.S. are because of the platforms they were on. Dudebros too busy shooting people in the face to play a game with culture on the 360 and the Wii was a bad place to put an Oneechanbara game on anyway, though of course I did buy it. I’m sure it’d sell much better on Sony platforms in the U.S. Same reason why Tales games sell better on Sony platforms in the U.S. That’s where the fanbase is. But you’re right in that D3 Pub might not figure that out for themselves. Hence, NISA, IFI or XSEED to the rescue. :p

        • Six

          I really hate that mentality when it comes to 360 owners. >_<

          I must be in some kind of extreme minority or something. I love Japanese games, but I prefer Xbox over Playstation. Or rather, 360 to the PS3.

          • DarthBrian

            Based on who I know who own 360s and not PS3s, yes, you are in the minority.

            For the record, I bought Oneechanbara for 360 also. None of my friends who also own 360s did. All I ever saw them playing is shooters and Elder Scrolls types of games. Not a single Japanese game except for RE5 maybe. Then I canceled Xbox Live Gold. :p

            • Budgiecat

              I guess Bamco & D3 woke up finally

          • Budgiecat

            PS3 has Jojo, Gundam Extreme VS, Guilty Gear Xrd, and Godzilla

            auto fatality win

            • Six

              I only care about one of those. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

              • Budgiecat

                I know which one too :P

                However, I dare say if you actually took the time to read JJBA & watch the Anime, along with playing VS online, you’d be a convert…

                not sure whats up with you not caring for Godzilla smashing through cities though….that just breaks all logic of fun..

                But even GG Xrd alone is an auto win :P

                • Six

                  I don’t like manga, and I’ve stated my feelings towards anime on more than one occasion. :P

                  As for Godzilla, I’m just straight-up not interested. It doesn’t look appealing to me at all.

                  I’ll probably be there day one for Xrd though, just a question of which platform.

                  • Budgiecat

                    Why dont you like Manga and Anime

  • SegaSaturnSNK

    Now bring it to AMIERKA!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Bob Obb

    It’s finally time for me to buy a PS4 :)

  • DukeVerde

    People actually liked the other Onechanbara games? <_<

    • jujubee88

      They liked the idea of Naked Japanese girls that kicked ass, lets be honest.

      • Six

        Fuck yeah I do.

    • DrForbidden

      Yes. Why are you surprised when we live in a world where there are people who like haggis, Twilight books, Budweiser, or Saw films?

  • An Tran

    1080p and 60 FPS huh? Does the game actually look pretty, or is it low poly with crappy textures?

  • bloodiOS

    To unexpectedly stumble upon this amazing news shortly after waking up is too much of a shock T_T

    Oh, man, this is so awesome! If only the first game was to be remastered and released together with this too…

  • Anime10121


  • Xinen

    Really cool news, I’m going to have to import this one too. No No No was fun.

  • MasterDays

    Only Ps4?? bye

    • Budgiecat

      smell ya later

  • CosmicNova
  • kevin

    The 360 game was fun

  • Budgiecat

    that great that its “full HD”, and running 1080p @ 60fps, but what engine is it running on? Unreal 4?

    I mean, if you use a PS2 like engine, sure….

    Judging by how quickly the games coming out, its probably going to use the same old engine..

  • Zefhar

    Armour specs must be really high in this game

  • ShadowFang

    Here’s hoping Japan doesn’t just automatically ignore it because it has an attractive WOMAN in the lead role (Kagura). Y’know, instead of the usual these days – a big breasted little girl with enormous eyes who probably would lose her clothes when you poke her with the Dual Shock touchpad. Thank God Compile Heart or Marvelous aren’t making this. Onechanbara is downright classy by today’s standards.

    • Luna Kazemaru

      so because it has an older woman doing it its classy…holy shit i’m done with some of you posters here….

  • Lara Croft

    I would be really surprised if this wasn’t Full 1080p 60fps.

  • Megamatics

    Never played one of these games, but if the PS4 gets more JRPGs and possibly a Tales of game you can count me in.
