[Thirsty Thursday] 6 Games Like School Girl Zombie Hunter [Recommendations]

We know why you’re here. Maybe you told yourself that you were sick of waiting for a new team-based shooter for your PS4 and Zombie School Girl Hunter was just filling a Left 4 Dead-sized hole in your heart.

Look, we’re not here to judge. We just want to help. Whatever your reasons are, Zombie School Girl Hunter at the very least fills a niche that needs covering. For that reason, we’ve arranged some selections of only the finest B-games out there. After all, there are plenty of games like Zombie School Girl Hunter out there. Someone needed to investigate them.

Similar Game to School Girl Zombie Hunter

1. Onechanbara Z2: Chaos

  • System: Playstation 4, PC
  • Publisher: Marvelous USA (US)
  • Developer: Tamsoft
  • Release Dates: July 21st, 2015 (US)

There are said to be two ancient bloodlines that exist to this day. There are those of Vampiric blood, such as the sisters Kagura and Saaya, and those of Baneful blood, much like Aya and Saki. These two bloodlines exist in eternal war with one another, but they can occasionally set aside their differences. The aforementioned pairs of sisters, for example, managed to call a cease fire while Kagura and Saaya dealt with their adoptive mother Carmilla. However, since she’s been defeated, Kagura & Saaya and Aya & Saki really have nothing keeping them from fighting each other again, so now it’s time for the score to be settled once and for all.

If there are any games like Zombie School Girl Hunter that are guaranteed to please fans out there, it’s the Onechanbara franchise. Zombie School Girl Hunter was largely derived from Onechanbara, as both games were actually made by Tamsoft. You’ll find the same campy overtones of buxom beauties running around in skimpy outfits fighting off hordes of the undead, but the difference comes down to the gameplay. While Zombie School Girl Hunter was somewhat Left 4 Dead inspired in its team-based shooting mechanics, Onechanbara is more of a low-budget Bayonetta-style hack-and-slash.

2. Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson

  • System: 3DS
  • Publisher: XSeed Games (US)
  • Developer: Tamsoft
  • Release Dates: September 15th, 2015 (US)

Dogen is at it again. This time, he’s acquired the incredible power of the Yoma and is using it to bring chaos all across Japan. The girls of the Hanzo National Academy are going to have to set aside their differences and come together to focus on a greater good. Asuka, Ikaruga, and Katsuragi will fight along with the new Homura Crimson Squad to take on Dogen as well as discover the mysteries behind the new girls Kagura and Naraku.

Did you enjoy the cheesecake of Zombie School Girl Hunter but the presence of the rotting walking corpses of the undead killed the mood? Tamsoft has got you covered with their Senran Kagura series, but we went for Senran Kagura 2 specifically for the refined beat ‘em up action mechanics. An unbelievable selection of curvy cuties isn’t the only thing Senran Kagura has to offer, after all! Combat couldn’t be simpler, with alternating between basic light/heavy attacks, long dashes for dodges, and so forth. The fun comes from racking insanely high combos at a rapid pace. Senran Kagura 2 is a great pick if you’re looking for games like Zombie School Girl Hunter with a bit more pep to the combat.

3. Code of Princess

  • System: 3DS, PC
  • Publisher: Atlus USA, Degica Games (US)
  • Developer: Studio Saizensen
  • Release Dates: October 9th, 2012 (US)

Solange Blanchefleur de Lux just can’t catch a break. First, DeLuxia, her home kingdom, is attacked by monsters, and then to make matters worse, her family is held responsible for it. Now Solange has been exiled, and seeks out the root of the monster attacks to reclaim her honor. To protect herself, she uses the magic DeLuxcalibur blade that was specifically forged to fight off demons. Along the way, she’ll meet up with new friends like Lady Zozo the necromancer and the thief Ali Baba to help her along her quest and save the world once and for all!

You know, if you ignored Solange’s design, you’d actually have a pretty credible action beat ‘em up game. Code of Princess features the talents of Tetsuhiko Kikuchi and Masaki Ukyo of the cult Sega Saturn class Guardian Heroes. It was actually designed to be a spiritual successor to that title, with similar mechanics and the charming cast from that particular title. Of course… you also can’t deny that Solange caught your eye. If you’ve still got some shame seeking out games like Zombie School Girl Hunter and still need some plausible deniability to cover your tracks, look into Code of Princess.

4. NeverDead

  • System: Xbox 360, Playstation 3
  • Publisher: Konami
  • Developer: Rebellion Developments
  • Release Dates: January 31st, 2012 (US)

Man, stories don’t get much sadder than Bryce Boltzmann’s. He was once a great slayer of demons, but a tussle with the great demon king killed his then wife. Rather than killing poor Bryce, he was instead cursed with immortality and is forced to live with his grief for all eternity. Now he continues to work with the OPHF doing what he does best: guard important public figures from demons. After all, what can they even do to him? It’s not like he can even die… though that doesn’t mean he can’t lose an arm or two in the process.

Wait, were you ACTUALLY looking for campy games like Zombie School Girl Hunter? Well then, why not track down a copy of NeverDead? Goofy story aside, it’s actually got a really neat concept. Bryce can’t die, so the only way to get a game over is for one of your targets to get killed. However, even if Bryce can’t die, that doesn’t mean you can get lazy, as your arms and legs can get torn off and totally slow you down until you can finally regrow your body. Even if you’re just a disheveled head though, you can still control your other limbs from a distance. NeverDead at least has a sense of humor about itself, awarding achievements for ripping your own head off and tossing it into a basketball hoop. So if you’re in need of some silly zombie games like Zombie School Girl Hunter, NeverDead’s got you covered.

5. Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair

  • System: Playstation 4, PC
  • Publisher: Marvelous USA (US)
  • Developer: Sandlot
  • Release Dates: December 8th, 2015

In 2017, the unthinkable happened; aliens called Ravagers nearly destroyed Earth. The only reason they failed was due to the brave efforts of the EDF who miraculously fought them off despite their superiority in every regard. For 8 years, humanity has tried to pick up the pieces and return to some semblance of normalcy. It was all in vain, though, as the Ravagers are back with a vengeance. There’s only one hope: the EDF has reassembled and is ready to kick some space bug ass.

We’ve been recommending a lot of action games here, but if you actually want a game like Zombie School Girl Hunter that’s actually a shooter, definitely take a look at Earth Defense Force 4.1. Don’t let its looks fool you: EDF 4.1 is the essence of the joy of shooting distilled into its purest form. You mow down Ravager after Ravager, with your only thoughts focused on how you can do it faster and save some time. It’s ridiculously addictive, especially with a Diablo-style loot system built on top of the gunplay. It might be a bit unpolished technically, but chances are if you’re a fan of Zombie School Girl Hunter, that’s not really going to bother you too much.

6. Dead or Alive 5: Last Round

  • System: Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Xbox One, Playstation 4, PC
  • Publisher: Koei-Tecmo
  • Developer: Team Ninja
  • Release Dates: February 17th, 2015

It’s been two years since the last Dead or Alive tournament, but it’s finally coming back under new management. Helena Douglas is in control, and wants to put people’s fears at ease with a new tournament to show that things have changed. However, that might be a little naïve of her, as Project Alpha still exists under Donovan. Kasumi will once again have to enter the tournament to have a chance at shutting down Project Alpha.

We know that fanservice games like Zombie School Girl Hunter have a reputation as being a little bit lower budget. If you’re looking for some real high quality gal-on-gal action (don’t read into that), check out Dead or Alive 5: Last Round. It’s the most recent entry into the long running fighting series, with several new enhancements to be found. The most relevant of these enhancements comes in the form of the Soft Engine, specifically designed around portraying character’s skin to look as soft and… shall we say… touchable as possible. Last Round in particular even brings in Mai Shiranui, the original crush of fighting game fans everywhere, as a guest character!

I come from Indiana, where I grew up near a video rental shop that proudly stated “The widest selection of anime in the state”, setting me on a course to enjoy as much anime as possible. I’ve devoted myself to over-analyzing various sports anime and video games probably more than they were ever intended. I currently co-host a weekly sports anime fan podcast called KoshienCast with my good friend, Matt.
