While undead aren’t new to the Ninja Gaiden franchise they haven’t been the meat munching undead that the west knows and loves. That’s going to be changing. The company famous for ninja are still in charge of most of the aspects of Ninja Gaiden Z but are bringing in “Spark Unlimited” to work on the zombie portion. (They haven’t worked on any previous zombie titles but hey, whatever.)
So here’s the thing about the Ninja Gaiden franchise. It’s been around forever. As a side scroller the first 3 iterations were 3 of my all time favorite games. They were hard to beat (I don’t believe I ever beat all 3 come to think of it,) fun to play and most importantly they had ninjas and I was still a kid. Win.
The franchise later became a 3D first person slasher. That kind of threw me off from the franchise itself but hey – it’s been a huge hit. So now they are making Ninja Gaiden Z which according to Yosuke Hayashi (head of Team Ninja) will be “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.’
