Creator of Mega-Man responds to fan pressure for another undead basher
Mega-Man creator Keiji Inafune's new studio, Comcept, has revealed plans for a new Zombie-themed game called Yaiba.
Inafune has previous experience with Resident Evil, Onimusha, and Dead Rising while working at Capcom, and he says the new title is a response to fan requests for a similar game.
"Everywhere I go, people ask me, 'When is it coming?'" Inafune told Games Industry International.
"There are so many zombie games out there, yet people ask me for a new Inafune zombie game. I am grateful for people's respect for me as the 'zombie game creator' and to fulfill that I must answer their expectations with Yaiba."
In true over-the-top action style, Yaiba puts the player in the shoes of a Cyborg-ninja protagonist.
"I am not at freedom to disclose the details just yet," said Inafune, "But I am confident you will enjoy this new concept consisting of zombies with action, ninjas and mechs."
