Team Ninja has revealed more details on the gameplay of Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z explaining 2 new Zombie Units that have elemental attacks coupled with dozens of new Screenshots of a level based in a Sewage Plant.
The new Zombie Units include a deadly poison spitting zombie called the Blister Sister, the other called the Zombie Bride which uses electricity as her attack.
Along with his arsenal of deadly weapons, Yaiba can harvest the new zombies to get temporary weapons: He can harvest the guts of the Blister Sister and use her weapon against others, he can rip the spine of the Zombie Bride and use it as an electric whip.
Yaibas weapons include the powerful Ninja Blade, a flail-like weapon, his cybernetic arm which can morph into deadly weapons that are part of the combo attacks in Yaiba’s arsenal.
The screenshots show Yaiba trekking through the Sewage Plant teeming with the Undead in his search for his arch-nemesis Ryu Hayabusa.
Visually Yaiba Ninja Gaiden Z is a colorful hack-and-slash from the collaboration between Team Ninja and famed videogame producer Keiji Inafune.
You play as Yaiba, a cybernetic Ninja on his quest for revenge and survival in a world overrun with monsters. After getting torn in two, Yaiba is cybernetically augmented both to survive and exact his revenge against his nemesis Ryu Hayabusa.
Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z will be released on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC (Steam) on March 2014.
