Senran Kagura 2 and Onechanbara Z2 Announced for US!

Xseed announced a few days ago that they were localizing (for the US) both Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson for the 3DS and Onechanbara Z2: Chaos for the PS4.

I'm a fan of Senran Kagura after playing the first one on the 3DS.  I prefer the fighting system on the PS Vita one, Shinovi Versus, but the original is still solid.  Deep Crimson is supposed to be a direct sequel, but doesn't mention the SV girls, so I have to assume it is set in the sixth months between those two games.  Either way, I'm eager to get my hands on it later this year.  Wait... I probably should have phrased that better, considering the here's the trailer!

The other one is another Onechanbara game.  As far as I know, only one other has come over here, both on the Xbox 360 and Wii (?!), which was Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad.  I played the 360 version and have all achievements in the game.  It was a lot of fun!  There were a few frustrating spots, like the final boss, a boss fight halfway through, and trying to perfectly time combos for some unlocks and achievements... but you do fight a killer whale zombie boss in it!  What other game can boast that?

Anyway, the game was fun, it was a budget title and I ended up buying the expensive DLC for the extra characters.  I kept hoping someone would bring another of the series over, and I only had to wait 8 years!  (Seriously, I asked the people at the D3 booth at PAX one year if they were going to bring out any more)

You can see the announcement trailer here.  XSeed teased that they would release an Onechanbara game this year, and the silhouette matched to a previous game on the PS3.  It seems we will get this instead, but at least it's on PS4!  Just like Deep Crimson, I'm excited to play Z2: Chaos.  Maybe we will get both Onechanbara games?  I'd be happy with that.
