TGS: New trailer and screens of Yaiba

TGS: New trailer and screens of Yaiba

A new trailer and a few details for Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z. Yes, that's the new title of Keiji Inafune's game and we also learn that Team Ninja and Spark Unlimited are collaborating with Comcept for the development. The main character, Yaiba, will be chasing Ryu Hayabusa, hence the subtitle. Targeted for "home consoles", no release date yet.
Update: First screenshots added.

Hm. Zombies, Ninjas, Blood.
It can't be worse than NG3.

Edit: Oh, Spark Unlimited. I take back what I said xD

That is a crazy crossover!

The fact it's tied to NG kinda sucks...

Great art style = check.
Badass gore = check.
Cell shaded = check.
Robot ninja = check.
Zombies = check.

Day one.

Wallpaper worthy on Keyart lol

Anyways, I am just thinking of how the combat will be like.
How fast is it, how stylish is it, weapons...etc.

At this point, I think anything could be better than NG3 lol


PS. Us killing Ryu Hayabusa, yeah thats gonna be interesting. Hopefully we can have Ryu as a playable character in a NG+ or unlockable character or something.

So the location is Russia (russian text on the title picture, not much sense in it though as usual).

I bet Inafune never intended to connect Yaiba with NG but apparently the Tecmo/Koei offer made him change his mind. Must be sad to own the rights to a videogame without having a publisher to sell it for you, right Mr. Itagaki ? ^^

Nice art style, but zombies need to go away. BE ORIGINAL!

the idea is sound tecmo but your problem is your technique

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (13 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (13 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (14 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (14 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (14 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (15 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (15 Hours ago)
