Keiji Inafune officially revealed “Yaiba” as Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, a collaboration between Spark Unlimited and Team Ninja at TGS 2012. They’ve just revealed a new trailer for the same, which ramps up the mecha ninja slashing undead monsters action gameplay we fell for in the first place. Plus the connection to Ninja Gaiden is revealed, and well, in a word, “awesome”.
It’ll be interesting to see how Inafune and Team Ninja pull this off (especially since the latter is coming off the failure of Ninja Gaiden 3). But hey, it looks more fun than Resident Evil 6 (double zing!).
