There’s good news and bad news for gamers looking forward to the release of Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z. Bad news: The game’s been delayed by two weeks. Good news: You’ll get a nifty three-part comic series alongside it.
Team Ninja has teamed up with Dark Horse Comics to create the digital series, a three-part project providing backstory for the upcoming game. It’s set to launch on the same day as the game (March 20th in Australia/New Zealand), and it will be free to download, with a full-colour print comic in the works as well.
A quick recap for newcomers: Yaiba is a violent cyborg ninja, cut in half and put back together again with the help of modern technology. With his cyber arm and ninja sword, he’s facing off against a whole bunch of fierce zombies.
Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z is headed to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC from March 20th.
