Tecmo Koei and Team Ninja announced today that Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z will launch across Europe on the 28th February 2014 for PS3, PC and X360. Additionally, a new trailer has been released, introducing Miss Monday, YAIBA’s in-game tour guide, as well as offering 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.
As the press release reads, players will 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.
