According to the developer: "Armed with his mech harvested rocket launcher, one shot will take them out before they even have a chance to try and devour him. Yaiba then continues the bloodbath and harvests the zombie tot's mammoth Shoulder Blade into a club to take out the rest of the horde." Above is a new trailer, and below a gallery of new screenshots.


Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z is a zombie-themed spin-off of the Ninja Gaiden series, a collaboration project between Team Ninja and Spark Unlimited coming to PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.

It stars resurrected evil ninja Yaiba Kamikaze, who seeks revenge against Ninja Gaiden's leading man Ryu Hayabusa, who was responsible for killing Kamikaze in the first place.

The game was originally due for release on February 28 in Europe, but publisher Tecmo Koei Europe recently confirmed this has been delayed to March 18 on consoles and March 21 on PC.
