If you're holding out hope for a sequel to D3 Publisher's gory boob-'em-up Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad, your dreams may soon come true. UK retailer Play.com recently started accepting preorders for an Xbox 360 game titled Onechanbara 2, though the listing was removed from the site shortly thereafter.

The Onechanbara franchise has seen a number of sequels and upgrades since its humble beginnings as part of D3's "Simple 2000" budget lineup for the PlayStation 2. The UK actually saw localized versions of many of these games (Zombie Zone, Zombie Hunters), while the Xbox 360's Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad and its sister Wii title Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers were the only series entries to arrive stateside.

Given the series' popularity in the UK, it makes sense that a sequel would be first announced there, though D3 has issued no word regarding when Onechanbara 2 will be released, or if it even exists at this point.
