Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z is Insane


Ever since Keiji Inafune, creator of series such as Mega Man, Onimusha and Dead Rising, left Capcom a few years ago, most of his games seem either crazy or insane. Just like his most recent game, Soul Sacrifice, Ninja Gaiden Z looks to continue the trend.

Ninja Gaiden Z is no ordinary Ninja Gaiden game. You do not get to play as series main protagonist Ryu Hayabusa, instead he takes the role of this game’s big bad. You are Yaiba Kamikaze, a man who was once killed by Hayabusa during a one on one battle and has come back to life seeking revenge. I am loving the cell-shaded art style of the game and let’s just say the blood will flow.

You can watch the awesome battle between Yaiba and Ryu, as well as a brief gameplay trailer via GameSpot below.
