Team Ninja's undead action-y spin-off Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z is getting a PC release, publisher Tecmo Koei announced today. It's slated to launch via Steam on the same day as the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, in "early 2014." There's no word yet on whether it'll have any fancy PC features.
Yaiba doesn't the series' usual star Ryu Hayabusa, but rather someone killed by Ryu then reanimated as a cyborg just in time for a zombie apocalypse. You know how it goes.
"At least in its early stages, Yaiba has a much more forgiving action curve than the traditional Ninja Gaiden game," our Steve wrote after playing it at E3. "Since the enemies are endless hordes of decaying people, most of the moment-to-moment combat involves slicing through enemies like butter."
If you haven't paid much attention because, hey, it wasn't coming to PC, here's the E3 trailer:
