During Team NINJA’s conference at TGS today, they made a surprise announcement that a new project is in the works for them. However, to make things more interesting, they are working alongside developer Spark Unlimited and the legendary creator of Mega Man himself, Keiji Inafune, to create “Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z”. Playing the role of a cyborg ninja (Yaiba) resurrected from the dead, you’ll be tasked with one mission: Kill Ryu Hayabusa.
According to Eurogamer, Inafune stated the following:
“The collaboration I’m announcing today is almost like a dream come true,”
“The reality, for a lot of creators, is that they can’t make the games that they really want to make. There are boundaries and rules and people that have some say. I’m very happy that I’m here today being able to make the games that I really want to make,”
The game definitely seems like an interesting concept and certainly a fresh take on the Ninja Gaiden universe. What do you guys think? Intrigued by the idea? Sound off in the comments below!
