Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z – New Screenshots and B Roll Footage

YAIBA: NINJA GAIDEN Z

 

Team NINJA has released new screenshots depicting a fresh look into Yaiba Kamikaze’s chaotic plight showing off new bosses, harvested weapons, and an all-new environment featured in the upcoming YAIBA: NINJA GAIDEN Z. Deep within an enormous armoured fortress travelling across a snowy wasteland, Yaiba is surrounded by a pack of massive two-headed zombie toddlers known as the Terrible Two. Armed with his mech harvested rocket launcher, one shot will take them out before they even have a chance to try and devour him. Yaiba then continues the bloodbath and harvests the zombie tot’s mammoth Shoulder Blade into a club to take out the rest of the horde. Batter up, zombie fodder!

For those who may not have heard about the game, 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 cyber arm 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 upcoming collaboration between famed developers Team NINJA and comcept’s Keiji Inafun. YAIBA: NINJA GAIDEN Z will be available for Xbox 360 on March 18, 2014.

Yaiba Ninja Gaiden Z – Release Date set February 2014

TECMO KOEI America and Team NINJA announced today that YAIBA: NINJA GAIDEN Z will launch across Europe on the 28th February 2014 for Xbox.

In YAIBA: NINJA GAIDEN Z, players battle fierce zombies as YAIBA, a cyborg ninja brought back to life with cyber-technology, who will do anything for revenge. Brandishing his deadly ninja sword and the mecha weapons integrated into his cyborg 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 overflowing with hordes of the undead.  Only YAIBA’s drive for retribution and willingness to use any means necessary to get the job done can stop the countless waves of zombies in his path. YAIBA’s lust to kill is insatiable as he mercilessly slices through masses of enemies with his sword or the array of weapons accessible via his cyborg arm. Miss Monday is Yaiba’s virtual escort and is vital to his survival. However, not even she is safe from his brash, unbridled sarcasm.

YAIBA: NINJA GAIDEN Z comes from the two teams behind the most famous ninja and zombie videogame creations as Team NINJA and legendary producer Keiji Inafune team up to create a new experience. The world of the ninja meets undead warriors, cybernetic weapons, comic books, in an entirely new IP that draws from the NINJA GAIDEN franchise with a host of bold, new features including an original storyline and style of gameplay.
