I had no idea what this game was as I previewed Ryse: Son of Rome and looked to my left to see Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z in its bloody glory. Intrigued, I lined up once again to check out this mystery title. Turns out, you’re playing as an antagonist from the Ninja Gaiden series on a vengeful quest against Ryu Hayabusa. You fight through hordes of zombies with simple controls that you can pick up and understand immediately. They’re aiming for a very ridiculous game with Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z as it’ll have you doing a variety of over-the-top things, from ripping out zombie arms and using them as nun chucks, to throwing a zombie in a truck to break into a panty shop. It’s set for early 2014 release in Japan on the Xbox 360, PS3, and iOS.
