Inafune's 'Yaiba' Revealed to be Ninja Gaiden Z, With a Vid

Keiji Inafune's mysterious Yaiba project, which features "ninjas, zombies and robots" has been revealed as Ninja Gaiden Z, which apparently loses Ryu Hayabusa as its protagonist and gains new ninja Yaiba, who has a cybernetic arm as its new hero.
Ryu will still be in the mix however, with Yaiba seemingly out to get the NInja Gaiden icon. The clue comes in the trailer, with the cybernetic ninja declaring "I'm coming for you, Ryu". 'Nuff said. The new vid also shows off a distinctive art style.
It looks as though you'll play as "fallen warrior back from the dead" Yaiba, rather than Hayabusa then, fighting robots and zombies in Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z. Irritatingly however, there's still no confirmation of formats or a release window. Poo.
