Bikini zombie slayers

Post by Fightersmegamix » Fri Jan 30, 2009 2:39 pm

Best name for a new game in years :) I can't wait to see how they explain wearing that outfit while killing zombies :) Do publishers think that women and zombies sell games?

I'm ordering my copy, it's out next month. What's the silliest story twist or idea in a game you can think of?

I didn't know the Wii version was coming out over here! I have one of the PS2 games in the series (there's about 3 different versions or something silly, all with generic titles so you don't really know that it involves bikini-wearing cowgirls killing zombies with swords) and they're not bad... The levels just drag on forever, though. There's no explanation for the outfits either. They're just there because they are.

As for the silliest story twist, that belongs to a Taito game called Growl, on the Taito Legends 2 collection. You fight evil animal hunters throughout the game, and then at the end, it turns out that the poachers were under the control of a giant boreworm which comes out of the stomach of a magician, and tries to kill you by flinging rockets at you.

I am rather looking forward to this, hoping against hope that it'll actually have a decent game underneath with a usable combat system.

I don't see the need for an explanation. It has zombies. And bikini babes with swords. Both of those things are good - good enough reasons in themselves.

I was actually going to call you all a bunch of nutters, wanting to buy a game that you've never heard of just because it's got a wacky title and bikini wearing babes in it.

But then I remembered that I was a massive Troma movies fan.... :oops:

I was lead to believe that they are called Zombie Zone? Bloody hard to track down too being a 505 release - Lord I hate that publisher :x

Anyway, I'd love to say that I'm above such game concepts but who am I kidding, I'm gonna buy this - smells like a potential future cult-classic to me. Also, it's really rare for such a Japanese idea to make it out here so I'm intrigued.

Yeah, too many games worry about backstory now- its one reason a lot of games lack the sheer WTFness they had in the 8-bit days.

Is it going to be called Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers as it is in US?
I've known it as Onechanbara for so long, it'd be weird being called anything else. Like when they changed the name of Elebits to Eledees and the world went "what?".

Looks stupid and exploitative. But then, so was Rumble Roses and that was awesome.
