While this is not an exhaustive line-up, and could eventuate into any number of new acquisitions over the E3 2013 expo, video game publisher Tecmo Koei have announced their line-up of titles to be showcased during the event. For those lucky ducks who are able to attend and are not confined due to University demands, their booth will be located in the West Hall #4700.
YAIBA: NINJA GAIDEN Z
[PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 | Early 2014]
In YAIBA: NINJA GAIDEN Z, players will 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 into a stylized 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 nunchucks? Both possibilities fill Yaiba’s heart with twisted laughter in this upcoming collaboration between famed developers Team NINJA and comcept’s Keiji Inafune.
