Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z Is A Horror Spinoff Coming To PS3, 360
Ninja Gaiden with zombies kinda makes sense. An almost superhuman hero with a really sharp weapon slashing through hordes of the shuffling undead.
And now we know it's coming to the PlayStation 3. When Team Ninja initially announced their new project entitled Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, studio boss Yosuke Hayashi didn't specify the intended platforms, just saying it was coming to "consoles."
Now, though, as revealed by Spark Unlimited job listings (spotted by Siliconera), the consoles that will receive this spinoff are, perhaps predictably, the PS3 and Xbox 360. Both consoles appear in the job descriptions for a senior character artist and a senior designer. Supposedly, this project boasts "a bold new take on third-person slasher" and we should also expect some "horror elements, too." That might not be exactly what Ninja Gaiden followers want but hey, spinoffs are big this generation.
