Yaiba:Ninja Gaiden Z-from the creator of Megaman-Now for Next Gen Consoles


Ex Capcom guru and Megaman/Dead Rising creator Keiji Inafune announced his new game Yaiba being developed by his new studio Comcept. Supposed to be a blend of "Zombies, Mechs, and Ninjas"

Have to keep an eye on this one…

Ninja Gaiden 3:Razor's Edge - Game out on 4/2 for PS3 and 360
Metal Gear Rising thread. Releasing in Early 2013 for PS3 & 360

does this mean soul sacrifice is already done

or is he the kind of guy who likes to juggle projects


Inafune, mechs, ninjas, and zombies.

3/4 I’m down.


After reading how Inafune wants to create a “nostalgic” game, and after seeing the trailer, I started to think maybe this will be a NES Ninja Gaiden type game.

One can only hope lol


Is this game WiiU exclusive?
Regardless it looks hot.


No system announcement yet, hopefully all 3

  1. All 4. 2-fingered head slap Jackie always forget about Vitaaaa!


Six, bitch. PC and 3DS. :stuck_out_tongue:


There you have it…it’s a NG spinoff of sorts.


If this Yaiba guy gets to Ryu in the end Ryu will murder the fuck out of him. You can’t have a sequel if Ryu gets involved.


I just exploded in my pants.


Motha-fuckin called this one. Even if/when this game bombs worse than daikatana, I’ll always have this moment to cherish


Honestly I like this idea, hunting down a prized hero of an acclaimed series? Sign me up!


Kinda disappointed. I thought it was about the anime/manga.

Oh well :frowning:


Some high res screens.











Goddamn Inafune.


Yoooooooooooooo…That graphical style…

This guy must be from the Spider clan. Only those guys love the taste of Hayabusa’s blade


So the story is about a NG jobber who gets the Million Dollar Man treatment…and goes on an undead rampage toward Ryu Hyabusa?
I like.
