Today’s issue of Weekly Famitsu revealed a batch of new screenshots of D3 Publisher’s upcoming hack & slash game Onechanbara Origin.
First of all, we get to see the new design for Eva, a woman who is said to have killed Aya and Saki’s mother. Using her strong body, she can easily wield a giant sword that is as tall as she is. Her attacks are super-powerful and very flashy and her description literally defines her “Dynamite Glamour.”
Next, we get to see Aya and Saki in her ultimate berserk mode. In this mode, their attack power will increase. On the other hand, their energy gradually decreases, but this is halted by hitting enemies which recovers energy, allowing you to preserve your berserk mode longer. In other words, when in this state, attack is the best defense.
Incidentally, Eva used to be the final boss of Zombie Hunters 2, and she actually becomes playable in that game by beating her in hard mode. No information has been provided about this for Onechanbara Origin, so I guess we’ll just have to defeat her and see what happens.
If you want to see more, you can enjoy the latest batch of screenshots and the previous trailer, the reveal of the box art, the first gameplay, the previous gallery of images, another recent gallery, another batch of images and the first trailer and more from all the way back in February.
Onechanbara Origin will release in Japan on December 5, exclusively for PS4.
At the moment, there is no news about a possible a release outside of Japan, but D3 publisher has a good track record of publishing its recent games in the west. We’ll have to wait for a possible announcement.
