Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z development consoles detailed

Set for 360 and PS3

Remember Ninja Gaiden Z? That weird spinoff game where the chief goal is to kill the franchise hero Ryu Hayabusa?

Although details on planned platforms have been scarce, leading some to believe it was a next-gen project, it seems as if the game is slated for the 360 and PS3 based on a job posting by co-developer Spark Unlimited.

If there really are no plans for a Wii U release, it would be pretty disappointing if Tecmo Koei already dropped support following the launch port of Ninja Gaiden 3. Whatever the case may be though, I hope it honors the new 3D franchise and kicks the difficulty up a notch.

Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z looks disgusting; over-the-top; insane; and unabashedly offensive, yet I still can't wait to give it a go. The latest trailer above sheds some light on a few of the game's more interesting costumes, and let's just say the school girl outfit is not quite what one would expect.

Guys. I met Keiji Inafune at E3. I interviewed Keiji Inafune at E3. I've achieved everything I've wanted to accomplish in my relatively short career as a games journalist. There is literally nothing else for me to do except p...
Under Itagaki's watch, the Ninja Gaiden series was about big production values, precise action, and serious-face gameplay. Those days are over. With Inafune at the helm of this new Ninja Gaiden spin-off, the tone has gone th...
