Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z

Yaiba Beats His Enemies At Their Own Game

Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z's hero has a useful talent: He can take weapons (and even body parts) from his fallen opponents, and use them as he battles armies of zombies. After looking at one towering enemy, it's clear that Yaiba's ingenuity will be quite handy.

The trailer below shows a battle between Yaiba and a quadruped robot. After dodging its flame attacks and stomps, the cyberninja leaves the battle with the Pocket Rocket rocket launchers. He'll need them during a battle against waves of titanic toddlers. The two-headed zombie monsters look tough, but Yaiba is able to defeat them – grabbing a bat-like shoulder blade weapon in the process.

Look for the game on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC on March 18. For more information on Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, including the story behind creating Yaiba, check out this developer roundtable video.

  • THis is a title I have slowly grown more and mor excited about. I love playing bad guys/antiheroes because to quote Lord Helmet "Good is dumb."

  • Looks like Mindless Fun im into that.

  • huh as a fan of NG this actually looks pretty great!

  • This looks sick, I wasn't too interested from the get go because Ninja Gaiden 3 left me salty. Going to be playing this for sure!

  • march is a beautiful looking month: MGSV:GZ Yaiba Dark Souls 3 Titanfall FFX HD Infamous: Second Son i wanna leave Titanfall out cuz the beta left me unimpressed and i can't help but already feel that its highly overrated... but thats another topic.
  • I'm really excited for this.

  • Okay, "Shoulder Blade"? That is pretty clever. I just hope the developers have turned down the misogynistic/sexist dialogue before the game ships. I was not a fan of the "Sugar T!ts" trailer.
  • So far 2014's lookin like a great year for ninja fans.

  • Now this I am to excited to play this puts a different spin on the game say what!!!!!

  • Waiting on the achievements to be leaked...

  • The artstyle of this game looks SO *** SEXY HOLY ***!!!!!!! But the combat looks kind of simplistic.

  • Its a visual mess, and im loving it.
