The Story So Far…

Since the death of Balzac, the Builder Planet has celebrated a long period of peace.

However, as time goes by, protein becomes scarce, and protein deficiency is soon a serious problem for the Builder Planet. As people struggle for control over what protein is left, Balzac II begins his subtle rise to power...

Learning of his return, Idaten and Benten take up arms and begin their man-tastic voyage...

"People have been raving about the benefits of protein since time immemorial and now Cho Aniki Zero reaffirms that belief!", said Frank “Bo” deWindt II, Associate Producer, Aksys Games. "It's time to get those muscles pumping and downing those protein shakes because you'll need them after the hilariously fun workout that is Cho Aniki Zero!"

Key Features:


Choose between Idaten and Benten, then select your “Option” (sidekick) such as Samson, Adon, or Micha & El. Defeat Emperor Balzac before he claims the universe's protein for himself!


Too much man-action on the screen? Collect enough Man Protein to unleash the devastating attack of the Men's Beam!


Blaze through five man-mazing levels of love, and bear witness to the birth and rebirth of some of the greatest bromances of all time!


Cho Aniki Zero offers multiple paths that leads to various endings for our muscle-bound heroes!
