Go nuts with these Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z videos!

Good golly, Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z looks like fun. Colorful as heck, with a fantastic cel-shaded design, and packed with good ol' fashioned overkill, this is the kind of game I can get behind.  Yaiba's making its E3 presence felt with a couple of fun videos. You can check out the gameplay footage above, and two more videos below. Enjoy!

Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate confirmed by Tecmo Koei

Remember that tease for something DOA related that featured Momoji? We were worried it would be for some silly character DLC. It turns out that it was a tease for a new game: Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate. This week's Famitsu reveals that Dead or Alive 5 Ulitmate is coming to PS3 and Xbox 360. The only thing we know so far is pretty obvious by now: Momiji will be a playable character. Stay tuned.

Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z: A cyborg ninja zombie killer
by Dale North

A game about acyborg ninja zombie killer that happens to be the arch-enemy of Ryu Hayabusa? Where has this game been all my life?

Actually, we heard about it last year -- it's called Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z. We've heard nothing about the tag team game from Tecmo Koei and Comcept (with help from Western dev Spark Unlimited) since its announcement at Tokyo Game Show last year, but Team Ninja's Yosuke Hayashi and Comcept's Keiji Inafune showed at GDC today to break that silence and tease their latest.

We got the first details on the game's background as well as a quick look at gameplay this afternoon at a special press event during GDC 2013.
