Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z releasing March 4 in North America and Feb 28 in Europe

Thursday, 31st October 2013 21:23 GMT By Ewan Miller

Tecmo Koei has let the world know Keiji Infafune’s Ninja Gaiden spinoff, Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z will be bringing its lovely cell-shaded style to North America on March 4th next year. In Europe the over the top game will be launching half a week earlier, on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and surprisingly PC.

Speaking about the game last year, Keiji Inafune said that despite the game’s western comic-book aesthetic, he’d prefer it to be thought of as a “fun game, not an American game” and is hoping that it will ease the divide in many Japanese gamer’s minds between games made locally and overseas.

“It’s a visual style of American comics, which was developed by Spark Unlimited. It is different from a lot of Japanese games. But we believe our chance is to gain interest through its uniqueness.”

Thanks, Polygon.
