Team NINJA today revealed it will be hosting YAIBA: NINJA GAIDEN Z events August 30 – August 31 during PAX PRIME in Seattle. Activities will begin daily with food trucks feeding the hungry masses of PAX attendees with snacks spiked with Yaiba’s own hot sauce and will continue with photo opportunities with Miss Monday cosplayers Katherine Gunn (@MystikGunn) and Jessica Nigri (@OJessicaNigri) throughout the day. Presented by Dead Ninjaz After Dark, a Midnight Zombie Movie Night will begin with a hosted bar, photo opportunities with Jessica Nigri and continue with two 80’s grindhouse inspired films – “Miami Connection” and “Zombie Vs. Ninja”. Gift bags will include Yaiba branded hot sauce and a special limited edition print by comic book artist Corey Lewis.

Dead Ninjaz After Dark’s “Midnight Zombie Movie Nights” will be at The Big Picture, 2505 1st Avenue between 9:00pm – 1:30am. The event will be limited to those 21+ with a valid ID.

Wristbands granting entry to the Midnight Zombie Movie Nights will be limited in numbers and can be obtained at the Yaiba food truck on a first come first served basis. The food truck will be stationed at 2nd Avenue and Pike Street between 11:00am – 2:00pm on both August 28 and 29.

Fans will receive updates throughout the day via social media at the official YAIBA: NINJA GAIDEN Z Twitter account: including information about Haiku Horror (#HaikuHorror) and the Miss Monday Contest (#MissMonday).

Product Summary

Platform: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360
Ship date: Early 2014

In YAIBA: NINJA GAIDEN Z, players will battle fierce zombies as Yaiba, a cyborg ninja who will do anything to get revenge and stay alive. Cleaved in two, he is brought back to life with cyber-technology. Brandishing his ninja sword and the mecha weapons in his cyborg arm, he slaughters zombies with brutal, over-the-top abandon. Step into a stylized living comic book where stunning graphics depict a world gone mad. Hordes of undead can only be stopped by Yaiba’s willingness to use any means necessary to get the job done. Will he kill by turning his cyborg arm into a razor chainsaw for slicing up undead—or just rip off an opponent’s arms to use as zombie nunchucks? Both possibilities fill Yaiba’s heart with twisted laughter in this upcoming collaboration between famed developers Team NINJA and comcept’s Keiji Inafune.
