'YAIBA' (ALL) Revealed

In Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, players battle fierce zombies as YAIBA, a cyborg ninja brought back to life with cyber-technology, who will do anything for revenge.

Best known as the creator of Mega Man, Inafune has produced multiple game series including Onimusha, Dead Rising and Resident Evil. In the past year and a half since he left his position as global head of production at Capcom to embark on a new life as an independent developer, he has worked on many notable projects including three games, three social titles, and three books. But he felt something was missing—something he felt people expected from him the most: a new Inafune zombie game.

“Everywhere I go, people ask me, ‘When is it coming?’” Inafune said. “There are so many zombie games out there, yet people ask me for a new Inafune zombie game. I am grateful for people’s respect for me as the ‘zombie game creator’ and to fulfill that I must answer their expectations with YAIBA.” “I am not at freedom to disclose the details just yet,” said Inafune. “But I am confident you will enjoy this new concept consisting of zombies with action, ninjas and mechs.”
