Keiji Inafune's zombie-slaying ninja 'em up revealed last week under the codename 'Yaiba' is in fact Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, starring a fallen ninja resurrected as a cyborg to slay Ryu Hayabusa. A collaboration between series creator Team Ninja, Inafune's studio Comcept, and Lost Planet 3 developer Spark Unlimited, it's being made for unspecified consoles.
