NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» A new girl named Kagura takes up the sword in a new hack 'n slash action game where zombies and the monstrous overlords are eviscerated and plundered in gory fashion. Kagura bears a strong resemblance to Aya of previous Onechanbara game with her svelte yet buxom frame, wavy tresses, and cowboy hat. Kagura battles the undead with her half-sister Saaya and the two are half-human and half-vampire killing machines. At the outset of the game, the two sisters are en route from Romania to Japan to eliminate Aya and Saki for rousing zombies all over the world.

For example, Kagura wields dual swords while Saaya is armed with a chainsaw to buzz through undead flesh. A new system introduced in the game called 'Blood Recovery' allows the sisters to regain health by drawing in their own spilled blood. Since the sisters are vampires, they can perform a move called 'Heroic Drain' which sucks blood from powerful foes to reduce their vitality and prepare them for the eventual kill.
