Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z To Use Unreal Engine 3
Ninja Gaiden III: Razor's Edge


The Ninja Gaiden franchise is getting a new entry, one that’s different than what we’ve grown accustomed to.

Epic Games and Tecmo Koei announced today that Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z will be using Unreal Engine 3. According to Yosuke Hayashi, studio head of Team Ninja, the reasoning for this is simple:  “As with any new title, there are many new challenges, from the game design to the art style and even development team structure. Unreal Engine 3 is a great ally to have when taking on those challenges. Unreal Engine allows us to quickly and efficiently iterate on countless ideas, and ‘Yaibi’ is now taking on a life of its own.”


Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z comes from Keiji Inafune, the creator of Mega Man. It stars Yaiba, a zombified ninja, as the game’s protagonist. Ryu Hayabusa is expected to be the game’s antagonist.

We should hear much more about the game at E3. It is currently slated for a 2013 release on PS3 and Xbox 360.
