Onechanbara Z2: Chaos introduces four new combat mechanics

Lots of new gameplay features that include the word "combo."

Onechanbara Z2: Chaos

With just two weeks to go until the game is out on Japanese store shelves, D3 Publisher has decided to run a brief press release outlining a handful of new moves players can pull off in Onechanbara Z2: Chaos, with a major focus on expanding upon combos. Check out our translation information below.

Pleasing Action Gameplay

In Onechanbara Z2: Chaos, players can enjoy a wide variety of exhilirating combat. Let’s take a small look at some of what the game has to offer.

COOL Combination Attacks

After you start attacking, if you press the attack button again with good timing, both of your character’s hands will glow blue and transition into what’s known as “COOL Combo Attack Mode.” In this state, not only are characters faster, but they can also string together attacks that are stronger than what they can normally pull off. Nail the timing and get things down to a rhythm and you’ll be well on your way to having as wonderfully visceral a time as one can have!

Should you manage to land a whole combo string as COOL Combo Attacks, you’ll pull off a special hidden move at the end and which one you get will change depending on the combo you use. The satisfaction you’ll gain when you can pull off series of COOL Combo Attacks over and over again without breaking a sweat is sure to be second to none! Plus, when you that special extra move is triggered at the end, your weapons will automatically reload themselves, too!

Ultimate Combos

The fun doesn’t have to stop with COOL Combo Attacks, though! Get in a series of Cool Combo Attacks that are made up of weak attacks and if you can then swap out characters in the middle of the final special attack with good timing, the new character will add on to the special attack with their own moves. You can do this up to three times, making it possible to bring in all four girls and wreak some real havoc if you’ve got the skill for it!

Ecstasy Combos

Ecstasy Combos are a super strong skill that can be triggered after meting out damage to enemies and building up the Ecstasy Gauge. Although the gauge will continuously drop as time goes on once Ecstasy Combos are activated, in exchange, they get stronger the lower the meter gets! Use it when you’ve got a great opening for it and you could very well turn the tide of battle!

Pursuing Enemies

Whether it’s toward an enemy you’ve got locked on or someone else that’s facing you, the girls in this game can now jump around the battlefield at great speeds. The fastest way to get get around in the game, jumping lets you get around wide open combat arenas in the blink of an eye. What’s more, you can still move around even while juggling enemies in the air, letting you pull off combos in midair. Truly, this is a game where speediness and brute force are one and the same.

Onechanbara Z2: Chaos is due out for PlayStation 4 in Japan on October 30. As usual, get thee to the gallery of new screenshots over here.
