Keiji Inafune has become quite the legend in the gaming industry over the past twenty five years as he's developed a slew of highly memorable, endlessly celebrated titles. He's the mind behind Mega Man, Onimusha, Dead Rising, and the upcoming (awesome-looking (opens in new tab)) new Vita title, Soul Sacrifice.
So our ears perked up a bit when we learned that he's announced that he's started work on a brand new title called Yaiba. And when we were informed that the game will feature ninjas, zombies, and mechs we just about keeled over. Inafune, you genius, you've done it again!
Details are still incredibly scarce on the new title, “I am not at freedom to disclose the details just yet,” Inafune said in a press release today. “But I am confident you will enjoy this new concept consisting of zombies with action, ninjas and mechs.”
“Everywhere I go, people ask me, ‘When is it coming?’” he continued. “There are so many zombie games out there, yet people ask me for a new Inafune zombie game. I am grateful for people’s respect for me as the ‘zombie game creator’ and to fulfill that I must answer their expectations with YAIBA.”
