Team Ninja has revealed Ninja Gaiden Z, a collaboration between Team Ninja, Spark Unlimited and Keiji Inafune. It’s a cel-shaded Ninja Gaiden with zombies basically, and is the full name of Inafune’s ‘Yaiba’ project. The studio also unveiled a new Ninja Gaiden smartphone game, free Wii U DLC and more. Get it all here.

Eurogamer has been tweeting details from a Team Ninja conference at TGS like trojans. Here we go.

First, Dead or Alive 5 will be available as a digital download at launch on PSN, but not Xbox Live. The studio couldn’t offer a reason as to why, apparently.

Next, the studio confirmed that Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge is a Wii U launch title in all regions, and that it would get free DLC shortly after launch.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 was revealed for PS Vita and it’s coming early 2013.

Also confirmed was Ninja Gaiden for smartphones, which Eurogamer says looks like a cross between DS game Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword with card battling features.

The big news is Ninja Gaiden Z, a zombie take on the series co-developed by Keiji Inafune, Team Ninja and Spark Unlimited. It’s the full title of Infanune’s Yaiba project unveiled recently.
