Ninja Gaiden Z Mode Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7Rr4PO7Ae0#t=0

Remember Ninja Gaiden before it was a 3D action series and you ran through enemies with the Art of the Fire Wheel? Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z has a throwback to the NES and arcade game called Ninja Gaiden Z mode.

This homage has a side-scrolling camera and 8-bit feel to it. When you progress through Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Zs story youll unlock Ninja Gaiden Z mode. Tecmo Koei notes that this has a really high level of difficulty designed to challenge players. Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z comes out on March 4, 2014 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC in North America. Europe gets the game a couple of days earlier on February 28.

Because it's post-Itagaki Ninja Gaiden made by fucking Spark Unlimited?

Man I really wanna like it, i mean...I love ninja gaiden, but it looks so ass, that e3 demo looked painful, just a bland action game with no apparent, or I guess immediate depth, might pick it up on sale just to try it out but...man. Ninja gaiden 3 was painful enough. Combat looks like something ninja theory would come up with. im sorry

It looks like Inafune has brought some Capcom to Tecmo Koei:

This is some Okami Wii stuff right here. At 1:28 in the Ninja Gaiden Mode Z trailer you'll see the logo pop up:



You can Dengeki's watermark at the bottom. They're a Japanese video game website.

Some typos in this video too:



maybe this was all part of his master plan, incredibly similar company names (capcom -> comcept), gaming website watermarks, typos, and oddly placed cameos in zombie games ala dead rising

1 was running on Xbox though, so it PROBABLY could've been ported over easily enough. Ah well, that was a concept that picked up more momentum over the last several years than during that generation anyway, at least among Japanese developers.

I think it's meant to look silly like the Megaman costume in Dead Rising. The whole game just gives no fucks.

I recall watching a demo where during a cutscene, a building explodes and then it starts to rain panties on Yaiba's face.

The game obviously isn't taking itself seriously. Which is fine by me, Ninja Gaiden 3 was a bigger joke.
