It’s odd people; as much as I hate zombies on TV and movies (mainly due to over saturation)I play more than my fair share of zombies  game and this will be one of them. It takes place in the Ninja Gaiden universe where restless ninja Yaiba wanted to prove that he’s was stronger than series protagonist Ryu Hayabusa – he wasn’t. Fortunately for him being killed only cost an eye & arm (both now replaced with elite tech); now with zombies, of all things, on the rise, Yaiba’s (who might be one of them) goals have been complicated but have not changed – to defeat Ryu.  And it doesn’t who he has to go through, living or dead, to meet his goal. See if the Walking Dead had more cybernetic, vengeful, zombie ninjas in it I would actually care about it – but that’s just me.

Hey! You got my ninja in your zombie!

 

Well you got my zombie in your ninja!

 

And that’s how Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z got green lighted. Seriously there is so little info on this game I had to come up with something. What we do know is that we have an undead ninja (killed by Ryu Hayabus a of Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive fame) who’s killing other undead zombies and setting out to get revenge on the ninja who killed him. And that’s all you need to know, man we’re so close to Ninja vs. Pirates it’s not even funny. I want to see that game next Team Ninja.
