If you're into comics, you'll appreciate this news.
Dark Horse Comics has announced a partnership with famed developers Keiji Inafune and Team Ninja, which will result in an all-new digital comic that will introduce gamers to the wild, wacky world of Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z .
The comic is supposed to reveal "essential pieces" of the game, which is dubbed a "stylized living comic book." There will be three vignettes penned by writers Tim Seeley and Josh Eamons, along with art work from Rafael Ortiz. These three comics will be available for free download at the Dark Horse Digital Store , and a new full-color print comic will also release when the game launches early next year.
If you've forgotten, Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z is a spin-off of the legendary Ninja Gaiden series and has Yaiba, a cyborg ninja, out for revenge. He was once cleaved in two but via cyber-technology, he's back and brandishing his ninja sword and a bunch of mecha weapons thanks to his new cyborg arm. Yeah, it sounds completely over-the-top insane but clearly, that's part of the fun. Blood and zombies; what more could you possibly want?
