D3 Publisher announced during the Tokyo Game Show event on Thursday that it is developing Onechanbara Origin, a remake based on the first and second game in its Onechanbara series. The game will ship for the PlayStation 4 in Japan in 2019. Katsumi Enami (Baccano!, Restaurant to Another World) is designing the characters in the game.
Tamsoft and D3 Publisher developed and published the original PlayStation 2 game in 2004, and released the sequel in 2005. Onechanbara Z2: Chaos, the latest game in the series, shipped for the PlayStation 4 in 2014. XSEED Games and NIS America released the game in 2015 on PS4 in North America and Europe, respectively. D3 Publisher released the game on PC via Steam in 2016.
The series inspired a live-action film in 2008, and a sequel in 2009. Kenji Yamamoto and Saegusa Hattori published the OneeChanbara Kurenai manga in Akita Shoten's Champion RED magazine from 2008 to 2009.
