By Can Tran     Dec 12, 2013 in Entertainment
The newest trailer for "Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z" showcases the special old-school "Ninja Gaiden Z" mode. The game comes to PC and consoles early 2014.
Tecmo KOEI has released the newest trailer for its Ninja Gaiden spinoff called Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, out February 28, 2014 in Europe and March 4, 2014 in North America. This title will be made available for the Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. Remembering the roots of Ninja Gaiden, as a 2D side-scrolling game, this new trailer goes old school to an extent while keeping the graphics in 3D cel-shading. This trailer shows the “Ninja Gaiden Z” mode in which you play through the game as if you were playing the old school 2D version of the old Ninja Gaiden series. Keep in mind, this mode is no pushover — this mode will be difficult and challenging.
If you are a fan of old school games, you can appreciate this old-school mode. Team Ninja and Comcept are co-developing the game while Tecmo KOEI is publishing the game. This spinoff puts players in the shoes of Yaiba Kamikaze who is the foul-mouthed, rude, and crude antihero. In the game, he is killed by Ninja Gaiden protagonist and Dead or Alive alumni Ryu Hayabusa. However, he's brought back to life as a cyborg. He uses his new cyborg abilities to take on the undead.

Comcept is also making a reference to its newest game in development called Mighty No. 9 which is deemed the spiritual successor to Mega Man. This is due to the head of Comcept, Keiji Inafune, being known as the creator of that popular Capcom franchise. It recently launched a successful Kickstarter campaign for the game. As a costume DLC, you can dress up as Beck, the protagonist of Mighty No. 9.
