Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z Trailer: Full of Fight
Yaiba Kamikaze shows us his moves in this combat-fueled trailer for Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z.
As brutal and violent as Ryu Hyabusa is, Yaiba proves that he’s a more visceral type of ninja with his attacks. Not only does he dismember everything in his path, but he mercilessly destroys the boss characters in his way and then appropriates parts of them for his own personal use.
For example, he dispatches a giant, dog-like mech by killing it with its own rocket launchers. From then on, he can carry it around like a weapon, calling it the “Pocket Rocket” and raining down an explosive death on all his victims. One of the more painful-looking fatalities is dealt to a two-headed giant boss. Yaiba brings it down by grabbing its neck and then ripping out its bones to use as a big, two-handed weapon. This gives birth to the Shoulder Blade weapon, which allows Yaiba to swing wildly around, hitting many enemies at once.
We’ll have to see how this resourcefulness will assist Yaiba in the fight against Hyabusa when Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z is released on March 18 for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
