Tecmo Koei has today lifted the lid on the Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z Special Edition, which bundles the game with a host of "exciting extras", including an exclusive full colour Dark horse comic book, exclusive Yaiba-themed costumes for Ryu Hayabusa and Momiji to use in Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate and the original soundtrack on a physical disc.
The Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z Special Edition will be available at launch in limited supply, and to celebrate the announcement of the limited Special Edition, Tecmo Koei has also released a batch of new screenshots showing Yaiba Kamikaze facing off against his killer and nemesis, Ryu Hayabusa.
"Spoiler alert: Yaiba doesn’t care. His lust for revenge burns deep within every aching cyber implant. Even with Momiji in the background supporting Ryu, Yaiba plans to use his cyber fists and bloody fail to make Ryu feel his pain," says the press release blather. "But, Ryu is no chump. A master of elemental ninpo, skilled combatant of both sword and bow, the dragon ninja has no plans of being bested by this cyber freak. Can Yaiba withstand Ryu’s barrage of ninpo magic and avoid falling victim of the Izuna Drop or is he doomed for the same cold fate yet again?"
You'll be able to find out the answer to that very question when Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z launches on March 21st, 2014 in Europe. The Special Edition has yet to be confirmed for other regions, but Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z will also be out in North America on March 18th and in Japan on March 6th.
Check out the Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z Special Edition below, as well as a few Ryu vs. Yaiba shots. You'll find all 20 in the gallery.
