That Yaiba game looks pretty slick , doesn't it?
But there's something you probably didn't know… During a Tecmo Koei media event prior to the start of the Tokyo Game Show, former Capcom executive and Comcept founder Keiji Inafune shared some new details .
The full title is actually Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z . Yep, that's right, this is technically a spin-off, and the project is a joint venture between Comcept, Team Ninja, and Spark Unlimited ( Legendary , Lost Planet 3 ). Interestingly enough, the main character, Yaiba, must hunt down and kill the master Ninja Gaiden protagonist Ryu. Evidently, the adventure will include "ninjas, zombies and samurai," which is kinda like a triple whammy for action aficionados.
We still don't know about targeted platforms and there is no estimated release window. But Ninja Gaiden 3 didn't really turn out well, so we're hoping this spin-off can resurrect our love for the esteemed franchise.
