A few days ago Team ninja and Dark horse are officially teaming up to bring a Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z comic series just months before the game debut. Yaiba Ninja Gaiden is one of the highly anticipated games of 2014 and rightfully so Ninja Gaiden 1 & 2 where stellar games that received good reviews, NG 3 on the other hand was not well received as fans complaining that the franchise was starting to being too streamlined, So Team Ninja decided to start new and fresh ip with Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z.
In YAIBA: NINJA GAIDEN Z, players will battle fierce zombies as Yaiba, a cyborg ninja who will do anything to get revenge and stay alive. Cleaved in two, he is brought back to life with cyber-technology. Brandishing his ninja sword and the mecha weapons in his cyber arm, he slaughters zombies with brutal, over-the-top abandon. Step into a stylized living comic book where stunning graphics depict a world gone mad. Hordes of undead can only be stopped by Yaiba’s willingness to use any means necessary to get the job done
Will he kill by turning his cyberarm into a razor chainsaw for slicing up undead—or just rip off an opponent’s arms to use as zombie nunchucks? Both possibilities fill Yaiba’s heart with twisted laughter in this collaboration between famed developers Team NINJA and comcept’s Keiji Inafune.
YAIBA: NINJA GAIDEN Z will be available for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Steam® (PC) March 18, 2014. This title has been rated M (Mature) by the ESRB.
