Official Press Release
OCTOBER 10, NEW YORK, NY—Dark Horse Comics is thrilled to announce a team-up with famed developers Keiji Inafune and Team Ninja! Fans will be introduced to the world of Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z with an all-new digital comic revealing essential pieces of this upcoming game!
The Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z digital comic will deliver three exciting vignettes, by writers Tim Seeley and Josh Emmons, with art from Rafael Ortiz.
The three Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z comics will be available for free download from the Dark Horse Digital Store at Digital.DarkHorse.com <http://www.digital.darkhorse.com> and through the Dark Horse Comics app (available through iTunes and Google Play).
An all-new, full-color print comic will also be available when the Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z video game arrives in 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. After being cleaved in two, he is brought back to life with cybertechnology. Brandishing his ninja sword and the mecha weapons in his cyborg arm, he slaughters zombies with brutal, over-the-top abandon.
Step into Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, 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 the undead—or just rip off an opponent’s arms to use as zombie nunchucks? Both possibilities fill Yaiba’s heart with twisted laughter—and the desire to kill more and more zombies!
