quote IGNImages:Zombies across America will meet their match when D3Publisher (D3P) brings the popular bikini-clad samurai sisters Aya and Saki to our shores in Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers on the Wii console. Bikini Zombie Slayers will ship to retail stores in early 2009, giving stateside gamers their long-awaited taste of the series known famous for its iconic characters and heart-pounding third-person hack-and-slash action.
In Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers, Aya is out to find the meaning of her IMICHI ancestors, even if it leads to the answer she does not wish for. Players can master the sword to take full advantage of the Wii Remote motion controls by slashing, swinging and thrusting into zombie enemy hordes. Play as either sister Aya or Saki in single player or with a friend in Co-Op Mode and utilize each of their unique fighting styles and set of moves. Get too much blood on either sister and be driven into Rage Mode and gain more power and agility to destroy enemies faster and deadlier. Every person met and enemy battled gets the sisters closer to understanding who or what is behind the zombie outbreak and putting an end to it.
"Onechanbara perfectly blends the thrill and excitement of a zombie-filled horror flick with a pair of sisters that pack a powerful sword behind impeccable beauty," said Yoji Takenaka, executive vice president and chief operating officer, North America and Europe, D3P. "Gamers will be delighted that a lot of features have been included to make a fun and easy to pick-up and play title at a great price."
Developed by Tamsoft, Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers is currently rated "RP" (Rating Pending) by the ESRB.
