Tecmo Koei has today announced a new deal between Epic Games to license the Unreal Engine 3 technology for use in Team Ninja's previously announced game, Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z. The new title will be in collaboration with Keiji Inafune, founder and chief executive officer of comcept, and developer Spark Unlimited.
“We couldn’t be happier to develop Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z’ on Unreal Engine 3,” said Inafune. “In the past I have been involved with numerous projects built upon Unreal Engine 3, so I understand its benefits and reliability. Unreal allows us to focus on making the game fun, and to push the boundaries of visuals and gameplay in the shortest time possible.”

“Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z is not a sequel. It is a new experience for gamers,” said Yosuke Hayashi, studio head of Team NINJA. “As with any new title, there are many new challenges, from the game design to art style and even development team structure. Unreal Engine 3 is a great ally to have when taking on those challenges. Unreal Engine allows us to quickly and efficiently iterate on countless ideas, and ‘YAIBA’ is now taking on a life of its own. We can’t wait until gamers everywhere get their hands on the ultimate ninja zombie experience.”
A new Tecmo Koei produced Q&A was also revealed alongside the announcement discussing the new engine with Hayashi and Inafune (thanks Gematsu), which mentions that the game will begin in the Ukraine, however an ending has not yet been determined. You can check that video out below along with some new screenshots thanks to Bloody Disgusting.
