Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z

New details for the upcoming installment in the Ninja Gaiden series, Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden 3 have surfaced from an informative press release by Team Ninja. The update gives us several screenshots and a good deal of new information regarding a brand new area, elemental combat, and a brand new type of zombie foe that Yaiba will encounter on his journey.

Yaiba, the protagonist of Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, is a cyborg ninja hell bent on revenge. He was killed via gruesome decapitation, and has been brought back to life in his current state by cyber-technology. His arsenal of weapons includes the standard ninja sword, along with cyborg arm-based mechanical weapons.

Yaiba’s cybernetic disposition allows for a multitiude of wasy in which the cyber ninja will be able to bestow slaughter upon the zombie hoards that habitate deep within the depths of the sewage plant.

Here is some of the new information that was revealed:

  • Yaiba adapts to his new zombie adversaries by ripping out the Blister Sister’s bile filled guts to harvest her toxic bagpipe, allowing him to spew the deadly bile himself
  • A hideous beast snarls from behind a sewer grate. A recording from the past is discovered that only Yaiba can view with his cyborg eye. The extremely toxic atmosphere makes Yaiba question if the sewage plant is the source of the zombie outbreak.
  •  Yaiba’s flail is a weapon of wicked design, and it seeks the taste of zombie flesh. Armies of the undead can feel the flail’s cold kiss in one attack, but it rarely runs solo with combos of cyborg rocket punches or a bit of sword play not far behind.

Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z is slated for a March 2014 release across PS3, Xbox 360, and Steam.
