"Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z" Soaks Unreal Engine 3 in Blood

Keiji Inafune and Spark Unlimited's side story heads to PS3 and 360

Things have been relatively quiet recently in regards to Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, a Ninja Gaiden side story that pairs Team Ninja with former Capcom producer Keiji Inafune and the folks at developer Spark Unlimited. Now we've got a batch of screens that show just how bloody things are getting with Unreal Engine 3, and a video that should sate some of that lingering curiosity.  

 

First up, the chat with Keiji Inafune, who talks about everything from the game's setting to the current state of development and beyond. 

 

 

Apparently we'll have to wait until E3 to see anything substantial beyond the first debut trailer, but here are some bloody screens to hold you over.

 

 

In Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, Ryu Hayabusa is essentially the antagonist, and it's up to our lead ninja to hunt him down, shredding up zombie hordes along the way. It's currently planned for release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
