Dark Horse to create ‘Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z’ Comic


Dark Horse Comics have announced they will be making a digital comic series based on the upcoming title to the Ninja Gaiden franchise, Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z.


Famed developers Keiji Inafune and Team NINJA will team up with Dark Horse Comics to create a web comic, which introduces fans to the world of Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z. The web comic will deliver three exciting vignettes by writers Tim Seeley and Josh Eamons, with artwork from Rafael Ortiz.


Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z is based around the story of Yaiba – a cyborg ninja who battles zombies, and will do anything to get revenge and stay alive. Cleaved in two, he is brought back to life with cyber-technology. Brandishing his ninja sword and the mecha weapons in his cyborg arm, he slaughters zombies with brutal, over-the-top abandon.


The Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z web comic will be available in December through the Dark Horse Digital Store. A print version of the comic series will also launch alongside the release of the game.


Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z releases in 2014 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
