Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z is out today and what better way to celebrate than an action-packed and crazy launch trailer showcasing the unique gameplay and humor.

For those not aware, Yaiba is essentially about a villain protagonist named…Yaiba who is trying to kill Ryu Hayabusa, the hero of the Ninja Gaiden series, for very stupid reasons. He of course fails the first time and is subsequently killed and then revived as a half cyborg. Now Yaiba is on the trail of Ryu while fending off zombie hordes left and right.

Crazy right? But if you check out the trailer below, all will become clear…sort of. Also, check out our review of the game here and our interview with Team Ninja’s Creative Director here.
