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 Z’s story you’ll 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.

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

I mean, Mighty No. 9's character design wasn't great in the first place but goddamn does that model not help it's case either. Yuck.

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

Because it's made by Spark. TN(D) never worked on PC, afaik.
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.

this is not helping either IP

insomnia and those images are messing with me cause I am a bit medicated on sleepy pills

maybe when I wake up those OP image will make sense

Who Framed Roger Rabbit X World War Z is what I'm getting

I feel like the guys at Spark Unlimited have to be the nicest people on Earth. Otherwise I'm at a loss to explain how they keep finding people willing to give them projects and collaborate with them.
