Best known for his many years of service at Capcom, where he created Mega Man, Onimusha and worked on the Dead Rising and Resident Evil franchises, Japanese developer Keiji Inafune's new independent studio Comcept, has today announced their next game. Titled Yaiba, the game promises zombies, ninjas, and robots, which is also about all that we can gleam from the teaser trailer (embedded below, here in HD
A message from Inafune, in English, on the studio's official site
, describes the studios ideas and ambitions for the title:
The expectation seems higher in the west. The expectation is clear. It’s for my next zombie game. There are countless zombie games out there, and yet, people say they want to see a new Inafune zombie game. I am flattered and grateful, for people associating me as a “Zombie Lover”. For that, I must, answer to this expectation. This new concept for my game was born some time after becoming independent. I don’t want to spoil everything just yet, but I hope you will enjoy my new game that is loaded with stuff I love, zombies, ninjas, robots, and action. It’s called “YAIBA”. Ihope you are excited. I know I am.
More details are expected to be forthcoming at the upcoming 2012 Tokyo Games Show.
