We played Onechanbara Z2 Chaos so you don’t have to.
Or maybe so you’d WANT to?
So, mistakenly thinking this game had co-op (apparently that honor belongs to Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad) we set forth to play this…game.
Let it not be said that Onechanbara Z2 Chaos, and ostensibly it’s other entries in the franchise, doesn’t feature a lot of incredible violence, gore, style, and very clearly near-naked women as the cause of viscera flying in every direction. It’s also running an apparent monopoly on action games featuring wearable fruit.
Despite the lack of co-op, Onechanbara Z2 Chaos features a fairly robust and unique “co-op” combat system. You’re able to switch between up to 4 of the game’s ninja heroines, each with their own set of unique moves, weapons, and fighting styles. This makes for some unique juggling and combo opportunities wherein you’re essentially a non-stop whirlwind of destruction and mayhem. This culminates in the occasional ability to bring the 3 unseen heroes on screen for some truly chaotic action and unique combo abilities between different characters. Onechanbara Z2 Chaos also features one of the least annoying required uses of the PS4 controller’s touchpad; during specialized finisher moves for the game’s large boss characters, you swipe your finger in the direction of an on-screen arrow, mimicking the girl’s moves.
