Capcom is beat to the punch yet again

There will be blood
Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z doesn't really offer up a deep combat system, but depending on what enemies you're fighting, it can get pretty intense -- especially on higher difficulty levels.

I really didn't know what to expect from Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z.
On one hand, it has the Ninja Gaiden name (which, admittedly, doesn't have much sway these days) and Keiji Inafune attached. But on the other, you have...
