Forget CG: Onechanbara Moves into Live-Action

Get ready for bikini babes and zombies!

Remember the Onechanbara game trailer we posted a while back? Well, now I've got something even better...unless you're one of those people who likes hand-drawn or computer-generated babes better than real, live ones.

Twitch has a trailer for the upcoming Onechanbara movie, titled Onechanbara Vortex.  And yes, it features a lot of women in a lot of extremely unlikely costumes fighting even more excessively unlikely battles. It's pretty impressive. Plenty of blood and violence, so don't say I didn't warn you.

  

I can't find a release date for the film yet, but here are some shots from the official website.

Well lets hope it's better than the game, I remember the quick look they did on GB for it and it was pretty terrible haha.
Wonder if there will be a shower scene like in the game too... hmm...

I've seen this. It was an awesome movie.

Newten: I don't think anyone plays those games for the epic gameplay ;)

Niko: This is actually the second film, not the first :)

Really? Well, I can't watch the trailer now, but the pics look like they're from the first movie.

Niko: That's possible, if they didn't update it for the new one yet.

Ok, finally watched trailer. Looking forward to it. The first one was a fun movie. I hope this is as well.

Vortex? Seriously? They named the movie after the Xbox 360 game?
