Tecmo KOEI's 'Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z' video game.
Video game Tecmo KOEI has revealed that Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, the company's upcoming zombie-killing multiplat title, will launch in North America on March 4, 2014. Additionally, the company has put out a new trailer to introduce Miss Monday, Yaiba's in-game tour guide and offer an in-depth look at how Yaiba's newly implemented skills will deliver increasingly gruesome kills.
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. His 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 the zombie killer'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 developer Team NINJA and producer Keiji Inafune who team up to create this new video game 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.
Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z will be available for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC via Steam.
