Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z Special Edition Unveiled, New Yaiba vs. Ryu Shots Too

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.

Any word yet on whether or not the collector's edition is going to be coming to the States? I haven't been able to find anything on it yet.

I love the art style, but I haven't touched Ninja Gaiden games since first one came out... Then again, this does look considerably different and is more of a spin off, so maybe. I wish there was a demo at some point, so I can try it out=)

The PS3 will probably get the better version like all Ninja Gaiden games. They'll just add a Sigma at the end.

Look quite nice. I just look forward this game without special edition because I preorder and spent InFamous: Second Son special edition for PS4. I usually preorder collector's edition or special edition for AAA titles / big game. But this game is not AAA title / big game. So I happy to get standard edition and enjoy game with achievements same time. Plus look forward Ryu returns too.
