Team Ninja, the team that brought gamers Ninja Gaiden and the Dead or Alive games has teamed up with Keiji Inafune, the man who brought gamers Mega Man, and Dead Rising. The project called Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, while still in early development, will have zombie action, ninjas, and mechs.
Yosuke Hayashi, the leader of team ninja talked about working Inafune and his team “We have always wanted to work alongside the legendary Keiji Inafune and his idea for the YAIBA project takes what he does best and combines it with what Team NINJA does best to create a unique experience action gamers can really look forward to,The process of creating YAIBA as a collaborative extended team promises to be an interesting and fulfilling journey for players as well as our development studios.”
Inafune who is the leader of Comcept Studios also commented on the project “When you think of Inafune you think of zombies, and when you think of Team NINJA you are aware of their heritage in creating great ninja games,So it was natural to combine these ideas in an organic way when I started thinking about my next game project. I believe players will really enjoy the YAIBA idea of creating a spectacular game experience around zombies, ninja, action and mechs.”
The game is under development for consoles and will be published my Tecmo Koei. When the game is going to be released is still to be announced, but more information will be released when we know more about the game.
