Zombie Ninja Gaiden? Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z Announced

Zombie Ninja Gaiden?  Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z Announced

Honestly, at least in my opinion, I feel that the zombie fad has run its course.  But the thought if Ninja Gaiden and Zombies pairing together has sparked a bit of excitement in me!

Keiji Inafune has announced, during a Team Ninja press conference, that Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z is a reality.  Not much was said about the game, other than it features a ninja named Yaiba who will be chasing down the original Ninja Gaiden hero, Ryu Hayabusa.

The hopes of Team Ninja are that Yaiba becomes a spin off series of Ninja Gaiden.  They did not announce which system it will eb released on, or a release date, however one would assume that Wii U will find a place for it alongside Ninja Gaiden 3.  The only clue was the word “consoles” in their announcement, so it does not appear to be a Nintendo exclusive unless it will be developed for 3DS and Wii U.
