There are a lot of console games out there these days with more than a little sexual fanservice in them. There are even some where fanservice is a core element. But then there’s OneChanbara Z2, which pushes the boundaries of fanservice you can have in a console title to a whole new level.
[Note: This article is NSFW and contains content some readers might find objectionable.]
Even in its default settings, the amount of fanservice in OneChanbara Z2 is something to behold as two of the four main characters are clad in tiny string bikinis. In cutscenes you get constant T and A closeups and the jiggle physics in general are only outdone by the Dead Or Alive series.
Moreover, the vast majority of unlockables in this game are clothing-related—be that new accessories or full-blown costumes. Of course, considering that the characters start out in bikinis by default, it’s not like the unlockable costumes could be even more revealing… oh… wait.
Okay, so the unlockable costumes are even more fanservicey than the default bikinis. But at this point, the fanservice couldn’t get any more extreme! I mean any more and they’d basically have to be naked!
Oh, hey! A DLC costume that came in the game box. Let’s see what this is—mother of god!
Yes, your eyes do not deceive you. This costume is nothing but two chocolate strawberries to cover her nipples and a banana between her thighs. And if we turn her around…
Yep, the banana is half peeled to get that extra smidgen of coverage. Still, I guess she is technically not topless so the game hasn’t crossed that li—oh, of course it has.
In OneChanbara Z2, the characters have new transformation modes. When transformed, some of the girls are no longer wearing even as much as two chocolate strawberries. Kagura, for example, is clearly bare-chested—even if her breasts are now conspicuously nipple-less.
But let’s be serious for a moment. This is a game about killing zombies in mass quantities. There is so much blood and gore on your screen at any time, it’s not like the fanservice is really all that noticeable when playing. I mean, it’s not like there’s an extra option to make even blood splatters covering the characters into something sexual.
…Oh, hey! Check this out. You can change the blood color to white. …But why would anyone want to do that?
Because white-colored blood is scarier?
