D3 Publisher has shared information and screenshots of the clothes removal-based decoy system and school club-based attacks of SG/ZH School Girl/Zombie Hunter, its upcoming PlayStation 4 third-person shooter set in the world of Onechanbara.
Get the details below.
■ Take Off Your Clothes and Use Them as a Decoy
The rumor that zombies tenaciously going around attacking clothes and will react to clothes you’ve taken off is true. They really do start attacking your clothes when they’re taken off. By removing your clothes during battle, you can use them as a decoy, so throw off your clothes in order to survive!
You can take off the clothes not only for the character you’re controlling, but also for the other characters. If your clothes are going to be destroyed by the enemies’ attacks anyway, it might be a good idea to take them off and proceed with the fight more advantageously. This decoy tactic only applies to male zombies… mysterious!
■ School Club-Based Attacks
Each character uses attacks directly associated with the school club they belong to. When swarms of zombies attack, you can use these club-based techniques to save yourself from the brink of death. However, there is risk involved in that these attacks consume stamina, so you can’t use them too often.
Sayuri Akiha: Kendo Club Attack
As the granddaughter of a martial arts master, the martial arts were driven into Sayuri from a young age. Not only is she a candidate for captain of the kendo club for next term, she possesses the power to do a clean sweep on her surrounding enemies with a single stroke of the wooden sword given to her by her grandfather.
Risa Kubota: Long Sword Club Attack
Risa, who was taken in by Sayuri’s family, a house of martial arts, was trained in the use of long swords from a young age. She is cowardice, but strong only when it’s the last minute and she has no choice, making the best of her long sword’s reach to do a roundup attack on a large number of enemies.
Mayaya Himeji: Softball Club Attack
Mayaya is only a first-year student in the softball club, but possesses ability that provides a glimpse of her future as a self-proclaimed cleanup hitter. Setting aside her batting average, she is stronger than her small body appears and buries zombies with flamingo‐style batting.
Enami Kamijo: Soccer Club Attack
Enami is a center forward and steady ace striker. She attacks zombies with her strong front volley kick and splendid bicycle shots.
Rei Kanazaki: Karate Club Attack
Rei is a former idol who loves disputes and bloody topics. She excels in the classical martial arts and has considerably high karate ability. Because of her sadistic personality, it seems that she especially loves kicking her enemies.
