Inafune's new zombie game Yaiba - first trailer, details

Walking dead joined by ninjas and robots in Mega Man creator's latest

The first details about Keiji Inafune's new zombie game Yaiba (which translates to Blade) have been revealed alongside a debut trailer.


Capcom's former global head of production said in a press release (via Edge) that the game will feature ninjas, robots and action in addition to the walking dead.

"A year and a half has passed after becoming independent, and I have been fortunate enough to announce several projects along the way," Inafune says.

"I have announced three consumer titles and three social game titles. I have given speeches in various seminars, panels, universities and schools. I have published three books. I am still aggressively challenging myself in various arenas.

"But I asked myself, 'Have I covered all everything?' It felt like something is missing; something people expect from me the most. Everywhere I go, people ask: 'Are you working on it? When is it coming?' The expectation seems higher in the west. The expectation is clear. It's for my next zombie game."

There was no information on launch platforms or timing.
