Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad Coming to US, Bringing Scantily Clad Zombie Slaying to Xbox 360

Roughly a month after D3Publisher announced that it would be bringing the bikini-clad heroine Onechanbara and her zombie-slaying antics to the Wii next year, the studio has revealed its plans to publish the Xbox 360 release in North America as well.

Much like the forthcoming Wii version, the Tamsoft-developed Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad has lead Aya and her schoolgirl sister Saki batting against legions of the undead in both singleplayer and cooperative multiplayer modes.

The title also sports an "exclusive dress-up mode," allowing player to "maximize and personalize the Onechanbara experience" as they venture through Free Play, Survival, and Quest Mode.

D3Publisher has yet to specify a release date for the game, though the Wii edition is slated to arrive early next year. The company has stated that it will be working with Tamsoft to "upgrade" the Wii edition with new content not found in the Japanese original, suggesting the Xbox 360 release may undergo similar treatment.

The forthcoming Wii and Xbox 360 games mark the first North American releases for the action series. Much like D3's Earth Defense Force series, Onechanabara debuted as a budget title on PlayStation 2 in Japan and has since garnered a cult-classic status.
