VIDEO: "Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z" Partners Team Ninja with Keiji Inafune

It's ninja vs. zombies in a brand new collaborative game

Keiji Inafune's Yaiba had previously been teased, but this week's Tokyo Game Show reveals much more to the ninja vs. zombies action title. Now known as Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, the game sees Inafune and his Comcept studio partnering with Team Ninja and Lost Planet 3 developer Spark Unlimited, kicking off a new Ninja Gaiden franchise. 


Inafune, formerly of Capcom and now with his own studio, spoke enthusiastically about the project at a press event: "As you may know I'm a great zombie fan. When I left my previous company, my dream was to make a zombie game. I'm very happy to be making this game with Team Ninja. Just as much as I love zombies, I like samurai and ninjas. My dream was to always make a ninja game so this collaboration that I'm announcing is almost a dream come true."


Check out the first trailer for Yaiba, which features a new main character (Yaiba) in pursuit of Ninja Gaiden lead Ryu Hayabusa. 



I'm guessing this answer's yesterday's question? It's currently not clear which platforms Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z is destined for.
