Team NINJA has unveiled the first official details on the retro-stylised side-scrolling “NINJA GAIDEN Z” Mode, which will be included in the upcoming Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z videogame. A variety of screenshots and information about this new mode have been revealed.
The new “NINJA GAIDEN Z” Mode expands the Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z experience allowing Yaiba’s over-the-top zombie chucking antics to spill over into an all-new 3D side-scrolling realm. Brought to life through classic 8-bit stylised cut screens and UI, this new mode will have Yaiba battling though hordes of elemental zombies, mechanised enemies, and other familiar baddies reminiscent of a certain 8-bit ninja’s plight as he racks up more mad points with every brutal kill.
To get through this side-scrolling gauntlet, Yaiba will have to push himself to his own limits employing all the dirty tricks of his trade. Whether it be by chain flail or cybernetic rocket punch, no amount of zombies have a prayer when face to face with Yaiba’s homicidal rage. Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z will launch on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC in early 2014, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details from publisher Tecmo Koei Europe.
