Product Details:

A CYBORG NINJA RISES FROM THE DEAD, SLAUGHTERING HORDES OF TWISTED ZOMBIES IN HIS QUEST FOR VENGEANCE in this collaborative new franchise from famed developers Team NINJA and Keiji Inafune.

Features

In YAIBA: NINJA GAIDEN Z, players will battle fierce zombies as YAIBA, a cyborg ninja who will do anything to get revenge and stay alive. Cleaved in two, he is brought back to life with cyber-technology. Brandishing his ninja sword and the mecha weapons in his cyborg arm, he slaughters zombies with brutal, over-the-top abandon.

Step into a stylized living comic book where stunning graphics depict a world gone mad. Hordes of undead can only be stopped by YAIBA's willingness to use any means necessary to get the job done. Will he kill by turning his cyborg arm into a razor chainsaw for slicing up undead - or just rip off an opponent's arms to use as zombie nunchucks? Both possibilities fill YAIBA's heart with twisted laughter - and the desire to kill more and more zombies!

YAIBA: NINJA GAIDEN Z comes from the two teams behind the most famous ninja and zombie videogame creations as Team NINJA and legendary producer Keiji Inafune team up to create a new experience. The world of the ninja meets undead warriors, cybernetic weapons, comic books, in an entirely new game that draws from the NINJA GAIDEN franchise with a host of bold, new features including an original storyline and style of gameplay.

Always intense, never boring, YAIBA: NINJA GAIDEN Z is violent, creative, and daringly different. Sharpen your sword, fire up your cyborg arm, and prepare to GET SOME!

The Story

The ninja are the most elite of warriors, exercising unparalleled skill, precision, and lethality for centuries. Only the most deadly candidates are given the rare and coveted opportunity to join the clan.

The final test of a ninja's training is to face a true ninja master in combat. For years, Yaiba was that final ninja. But after suffering the indignity of serving a clan led by the weak-willed and spineless, he decided he had had enough. It only seemed natural to him that he should claim the spines they had no use for. Among his confederacy of cowards, the weakest of all in Yaiba's eyes was the "legendary" Ryu Hayabusa.

Fifteen dead ninjas later and Yaiba found himself face-to-face with the straight-arrow poster boy. A vicious battle ensued and when the dust cleared, Ryu Hayabusa stood victorious - for the moment. But that's only where the story begins...

What Hayabusa took from Yaiba with the Dragon Sword - his eye, arm, and life - technology restored. Due to the intervention of the mysterious benefactors, Yaiba reawakens as rage-filled as ever. Only now, a zombie outbreak threatens to plunge the world into darkness. Now literally and figuratively armed by cutting-edge technology, he'll have to carve a path through legions of grotesque and deformed undead to reach Ryu Hayabusa. With Hayabusa racing against time to determine the source of the infection, Yaiba must leave his own parallel trail of destruction if he's to exact his revenge.


Characters

Yaiba

Unappreciated and undervalued by his clan, Yaiba broke the shackles of ninja tradition and decided to carve his own path... right through the flesh of his former compatriots. Yaiba may have lost his arm, his eye, and his life in the process, but he'll never be able to take away his insatiable lust for revenge against the so-called "ultimate ninja" Ryu Hayabusa.

Miss Monday

Miss Monday is the buxom brainy beauty responsible for keeping Yaiba's ego in check and maintaining his cybernetic components. She does her best to keep Yaiba on the right track during missions using all kinds of sophisticated gadgetry while staying safely out of harms way.

Ryu Hayabusa

Bearer of the legendary Dragon Sword, the ninja known as Ryu Hayabusa has saved the world countless times from dark and mysterious forces. He's now taken it upon himself to find the source of the mysterious zombie plague sweeping the world, unaware that Yaiba is still alive and hunting him down.


The Enemies

The Infected

Society truly stinks, but the viral outbreak has spawned a populous that's undeniably repugnant. These horrible bodies of rotting flesh are strong and fast, but also very, very stupid.

Electric Infected

While most infected are compostable, these modified infected produce an ample amount of electricity on their own, making them energy efficient! Apparently someone out there felt the infected needed to be more energetic, and shocking. Mission accomplished.

Burning Infected

How these infected keep their trim figure and hideous glow is a mystery that doesn't require an up close and personal investigation. Unless you want to be on the BBQ menu, avoid these ever-burning, charbroiled infected.

Toxic Infected

Proving that HAZMAT suits can't protect against a good set of teeth, these green-colored infected brought along a host of toxic chemicals to compliment all that rotting flesh - a combination that looks horrid and extremely corrosive.

The Heretic

Usually when a preacher tells you that you're going to burn in the fiery pits with Satan, he doesn't have his own fire and brimstone to back him up! Unless you're praying for a quick death, stay away from this unholy creature.

The Brawler

Local celebrity, world famous ex-boxer, and MMA fighter, Vseslav Degtyarev couldn't revive his career from the dead, but it looks like he won't let the fact that he is rotting keep him from punching his way to the top of the food chain.

The Terrible Two

The result of an experiment gone horribly wrong, this two-headed monster is as big and destructive as a tank. The creature has an insatiable appetite for human flesh, and throws a furious temper tantrum if it doesn't get fed. Run and hide as long as you can, or until there are no more places to hide.

In YAIBA: NINJA GAIDEN Z, players will battle fierce zombies as YAIBA, a cyborg ninja who will do anything to get revenge and stay alive. Cleaved in two, he is brought back to life with cyber-technology. Brandishing his ninja sword and the mecha weapons in his cyborg arm, he slaughters zombies with brutal, over-the-top abandon.
