Keiji Inafune’s new project, YAIBA: Zombies and ninjas

Keiji Inafune, the father of Mega Man, has announced his new game project. The game, code named YAIBA, is still in development at his studio, comcept. Today we have a teaser video to give us a hint of how the game is progressing.

As you’ll see, YAIBA is a zombie game. With ninjas and mechs. Awesome. Inafune says that he felt this kind of game was expected from him.

“Everywhere I go, people ask me, ‘When is it coming?'”Inafune said. “There are so many zombie games out there, yet people ask me for a new Inafune zombie game. I am grateful for people’s respect for me as the ‘zombie game creator’and to fulfill that I must answer their expectations with YAIBA.”

This is all they’re willing to disclose about YAIBA at this time, so there’s nothing in the way of details on date or platform. I suspect we’ll see more at next week’s Tokyo Game Show.
