Yaiba Ninja Gaiden Z will not be another Zombie game, say Hayashi
Yaiba Ninja Gaiden Z is being developed by three developmental entities. Spark Unlimited, and Team Ninja. I’ve heard of two different development teams making one project, but three? Seems like there might be too many voices in the room, but Team Ninja boss Yosuke Hayashi thinks otherwise .
In an interview with Silconera, Hayashi said each team offers something different to the game, and with Spark Unlimited, a Western Developer, in the mix Hayashi says they will stay “relevant in the future”
“Looking at Team Ninja and what we need to do is to stay relevant in the future, teaming up with a Western studio is one of the things that we needed to do,” he said. “We see ninjas portrayed in Western games, and they aren’t real ninjas. There is something off about them. Zombies are a creation of the west.
“We feel we can bring the authentic ninja-ness and by teaming with Spark, they can bring in the authentic zombie-ness.”
Fans of Ninja Gaiden needn’t worry that it will just be the same game with a zombie coat of paint, because while it takes place in the same universe, the game is its “own separate thing.”
“We are not planning on just bringing the Ninja Gaiden system and putting a different coat of paint on it and calling it Yaiba,” said Hayashi. “It will have its own sort of system, its own feel, and its own play.
“Within that, we need to make sure that gameplay will satisfy the Ninja Gaiden fans, but it’s not going to be the exact same thing, we just bring it over. So, we can assure Ninja Gaiden fans that they will feel the challenges in the game, but it will be different than Ninja Gaiden.
“It is not a direct sequel to a Ninja Gaiden game or directly tied into a Ninja Gaiden game. Within the world of Ninja Gaiden, you can have a lot of things going on, and Yaiba is one of those things. And within that we want to have stuff that a Ninja Gaiden fan will enjoy.”
There is currently no release date or consoles slated for Yaiba Ninja Gaiden Z. Rumors do say it is a next generation title though.
