HERTFORDSHIRE, 8 OCTOBER 2013 – TECMO KOEI
Europe announced today that
YAIBA: NINJA GAIDEN Z,
slated for release on the PlayStation
®3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360
® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft
in early 2014, will see a simultaneous release on Steam® (PC)
via digital download.
YAIBA: NINJA GAIDEN Z is an impressive project led by the
expertise of Team NINJA’s Yosuke Hayashi and comcept’s
Keiji Inafune, with the goal of creating a thrilling new experience
for fans. The world of the ninja meets undead warriors, cybernetic
weapons, in an entirely new game that draws from the NINJA GAIDEN
franchise with a host of bold, new features including an original
storyline and style of gameplay.
Players all called to battle fierce zombies as YAIBA, a cyborg
ninja who will do anything to get revenge and stay alive. Cleaved
in two, he is brought back to life with cyber-technology.
Brandishing his ninja sword and the mecha weapons in his cyborg
arm, he slaughters zombies with brutal, over-the-top abandon.
Step inside a stylised, living comic book where stunning
graphics depict a world gone mad. Hordes of undead can only be
stopped by YAIBA’s willingness to use any means necessary to
get the job done. Will he kill by turning his cyborg arm into a
razor chainsaw for slicing up undead—or just rip off an
opponent’s arms to use as zombie nun-chucks? Both
possibilities fill YAIBA’s heart with twisted
laughter—and the desire to kill more and more zombies!
A PC release through Steam will allow their action-packed
creation to reach even more gamers.
Always intense and fast paced,
YAIBA: NINJA GAIDEN Z
is violent, creative, and daringly different. Sharpen
your sword, fire up your cyborg arm, and prepare to GET SOME!
YAIBA: NINJA GAIDEN Z
will be available for the
®3 computer entertainment system,
® video game and entertainment system from
Steam® (PC) in early 2014.
