Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z Box Art

This game was released on March 18, 2014 and is no longer available to pre-order. Any incentives that were offered are listed below.

Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z is an upcoming third-person hack & slash game developed by Team Ninja, Spark Unlimited, and Comcept. The titular character, Yaiba Kamikaze, is a cyborg ninja who had his arm and eye replaced with mechanical implants after losing them in a fight with Ryu Hayabusa. Now he seeks revenge against Ryu while fighting a zombie outbreak at the same time. Unlike Ryu, Yaiba is crazy, sadistic, and unpredictable – he doesn’t give a damn about honor, drinks alcohol constantly, and is basically a complete asshole. You can see some of his cocky attitude in the trailer below.
