Tecmo Koei Europe announced today that Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, slated for release on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in early 2014, will see a simultaneous release on Steam.

Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z is an impressive project led by the expertise of Team NINJA’s Yosuke Hayashi and comcept’s Keiji Inafune, with the goal of creating a thrilling new experience for fans. The world of the ninja meets undead warriors, cybernetic weapons, in an entirely new game that draws from the Ninja Gaiden franchise with a host of bold, new features including an original storyline and style of gameplay.

Players all called to battle fierce zombies as Yaiba, a cyborg ninja who will do anything to get revenge and stay alive. Cleaved in two, he is brought back to life with cyber-technology. Brandishing his ninja sword and the mecha weapons in his cyborg arm, he slaughters zombies with brutal, over-the-top abandon.

Step inside a stylised, living comic book where stunning graphics depict a world gone mad. Hordes of undead can only be stopped by Yaiba’s willingness to use any means necessary to get the job done. Will he kill by turning his cyborg arm into a razor chainsaw for slicing up undead—or just rip off an opponent’s arms to use as zombie nun-chucks? Both possibilities fill Yaiba’s heart with twisted laughter—and the desire to kill more and more zombies!
