Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z new information and batch of screenshots and artwork

November 22, 2013 · Posted in Microsoft Xbox 360, PC, Sony Playstation 3 · Comment 

Team Ninja has released new gameplay information for Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z which shows off an all new area, elemental based combat and the introduction of new zombie types. New artwork and screenshots have also been released by Team Ninja. Check them out below.

Factsheet: “This latest batch of YAIBA: NINJA GAIDEN Z assets find Yaiba deep in the bowels of a sewage plant, confronted by waves of zombies that attack with bile, electricity and fire. Ever the cunning the ninja, Yaiba adapts to his new zombie adversaries by ripping out the Blister Sister’s bile filled guts to harvest her toxic bagpipe, allowing him to spew the deadly bile himself, at his dastardly discretion. Even though the Zombie Bride’s shocking attack can short circuit Yaiba’s cyborg arm, she isn’t safe from Yaiba’s carnage as he turns her spine into an electrical whip, zapping flame zombies to create a powerful magnetic storm. From there, the real fun ensues. Yaiba’s flail is a weapon of wicked design, and it seeks the taste of zombie flesh. Armies of the undead can feel the flail’s cold kiss in one attack, but it rarely runs solo with combos of cyborg rocket punches or a bit of sword play not far behind.

There are mysteries abound in this new area. A hideous beast snarls from behind a sewer grate. A recording from the past is discovered that only Yaiba can view with his cyborg eye. The extremely toxic atmosphere makes Yaiba question if the sewage plant is the source of the zombie outbreak. That’s not the only question Yaiba is left with… As he comes across zombies slain with the blade of a Ninja Sword, is he finally on the tail of his arch nemesis, Ryu Hayabusa?”

Batman: Arkham Origins some screenshots

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment today unleash some of DC Comics’ most deadly villains upon Gotham City with the launch of Batman: Arkham Origins. The next installment of the blockbuster Batman: Arkham video game franchise is available for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, with the Windows PC (boxed) and Wii U™ system versions available from November 8th.  Also available today is Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate for the PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system and Nintendo 3DS™ handheld system.


Developed by WB Games Montréal, Batman: Arkham Origins is based on DC Comics’ core Batman license.  The game features an expanded Gotham City and introduces an original prequel storyline set several years before the events of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, the first two critically acclaimed games of the franchise.  Taking place before the rise of Gotham City’s most dangerous criminals, the game showcases a young, unrefined Batman as he faces the defining moment of his early career and sets his path to becoming the Dark Knight.

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate, a companion game to Batman: Arkham Origins,  is a 2.5-D handheld game developed by Armature Studio, which brings the core Batman Arkham pillars, such as FreeFlow combat and Batman’s infamous gadgets, to the PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system and Nintendo handheld format for the first time. Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate allows players to continue the storyline of the console version and discover more details of the Dark Knight’s past.

“It’s a big responsibility taking on the Batman: Arkham franchise and the WB Games Montréal team has dedicated itself to giving players an experience that is worthy of the name,” said Reid Schneider, Vice President and Executive Producer, WB Games Montréal.  “Batman: Arkham Origins allows fans to play through a new take on Batman’s story while experiencing some enhanced game-play mechanics.”

Batman: Arkham Origins features a pivotal tale set on Christmas Eve where Batman is hunted by eight of the deadliest assassins from the DC Comics Universe. Along the way, players will experience a fresh take on iconic Batman characters, including The Joker, Black Mask, Penguin, Deathstroke, Bane, Deadshot, Copperhead and others yet to be revealed.

Also new to the franchise is the online multiplayer mode, which is developed by Splash Damage. Friends and foes can play online in 3v3v2 gameplay that blends traditional Arkham gameplay with third-person shooter mechanics.  Gamers can hunt as Batman or Robin against the most challenging opponents yet – friends and other online gamers – or take a walk on the dark side as a Super-Villain Elite and be part of The Joker or Bane’s gang.  Those playing as a Super-Villain Elite will also have a chance to seize control of either The Joker or Bane for a limited amount of time.

Players looking to extend their gameplay experience can buy the Batman: Arkham Origins Season Pass now for 15.99 and receive £27.99 worth of content.  The Season Pass is comprised of five of the game’s upcoming downloadable content packs, which includes two exclusive skins, as well new content from the Batman Arkham Initiation Pack and a separate all-new story campaign.  The Initiation Pack content tests Bruce Wayne’s skills of detection, evasion and confrontation among the mysterious temple high in the Paektusan mountains of Korea, where his greatest teacher, Grandmaster Kirigi, is holding a final class.  The Season Pass is available on the PlayStation®Network, Xbox Live online entertainment network from Microsoft, Nintendo eShop and Steam.

The Batman: Arkham Origins free-to-play mobile game, developed by NetherRealm Studios for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, is available on the App Store and delivers the stunning graphics and quality gameplay fans have come to expect from the team who brought to market fan favorite mobile games Injustice: Gods Among Us and Batman: Arkham City Lockdown.  The title pits players, as Batman, against a number of DC Comics’ most deadly assassins as they fight their way through Gotham City’s most dangerous locales.  Those who also own the console versions of the game and are registered for a Warner Bros. ID (WBID) account will be able to access exclusive content not available elsewhere.

The PS3™, Xbox 360 and Wii U versions of Batman: Arkham Origins are priced at £49.99 suggested retail; the Windows PC version is priced at £39.99.  The suggested retail price for the Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate handheld game is £39.99.  Also available in limited quantities is the Batman: Arkham Origins Collector’s Edition for PS3™ and Xbox 360, priced at £79.99 SRP.
