Onechanbara Origin Announced for PS4 with First Screenshots and Art

D3 Publisher finally announced the return of the Onechanbara series with Onechanbara Origin, a remake with a twist for PS4 of the first two games.

September 20, 2018

Today, during the celebrations for Tokyo Game Show, D3 Publisher announced Onechanbara Origin.

This isn’t actually a fully new game but it’s a remake of the first two games of the series The Onechanbara and The Onechanbara 2, released for PS2 in 2004 and 2005 respectively.

Heroine Aya and Saki have been fully redesigned with the character design by Katsumi Enami, known for having worked on The Legend of Heroes: Zero no Kiseki and Ao no Kiseki by Nihon Falcom among other things.

Another relevant difference is that this time around, Saki is actually playable.

Interestingly, this won’t just be a remake, but it will be a sort of reinterpretation of the original games and will include new scenarios.


You can check out the new screenshots and art below. The game is releasing in Japan for PS4 in 2019.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Onechanbara series, the latest chapter we saw is Onechanbara Z2: Chaos on PS4 and PC.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
