Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z

Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z Developer Diary Examines Its New Cyber Ninja

Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z is a Ninja Gaiden game, but it doesn't star Ryu Hayabusa. It stars Yaiba Kamikaze, a cyber ninja. The latest developer diary for the game examines his creation.

You can check out the developer diary below with executive producer Yosuke Hayashi, producer and conceptor Keiji Inafune, art director Shinsuke Komaki, Game Director Masahiro Yasuma, lead game designer Cory Davis, and producer John Garcia-Shelton as they discuss creating a new ninja for a new Ninja Gaiden.

Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z is coming to PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 on March 18.

Recently, a report appeared that Team Ninja – the developer behind the non-Yaiba Ninja Gaidens – is working on a PlayStation 4 game. You can find out more about that here.

  • Can't say this interview did anything that would get my hopes up. Infact it was exactly what I thought what this game would be.

    Cliche mix of outdated notion of cool with a simple story of rising to the top... I will probably try it when its out on the PSN for free. Not worth the 60.

  • So is Yaiba the bad guy set against Ryu by whoever brought him back from death? I gotta say though that I really don't like the devs classifying him as an "errand boy". Not a huge fan of Ninja Gaiden but I do remember that it was held in high regard at the begging of the 360s life cycle. Sad to see the brand fall so far from grace since then. Hopefully this is a redeeming act!
  • Well I for 1 from everything I have read about this game they have a winner for sure.

  • You've got the PS4 symbol at the top. Is this an error?

  • I'm sensing a Godzilla/Mecha like relationship...
  • Looking forward to playing this, I was severely disappointed with Ninja Gaiden 3.
