Team Ninja's upcoming Ninja Gaiden sequel, Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, just had the launch day package sweetened a little bit. Those who pick up Yaiba on March 18 will have the chance to pick up the game's limited special edition as a free upgrade. Same price, but with bonus content. Since the special edition is in limited supply however, anyone who wants to pick it up will have to show up early on launch day. Those clever jerks over at Tecmo Koei.
Of course, whether or not anyone rushes out to pick up Yaiba on launch day depend on what's included in the special edition, right? What does Tecmo Koei have to offer us?
Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z Special Edition:
- Retail edition of Ninja Gaiden Z on Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3
- Exclusive Yaiba full color comic book from Dark Horse Comics
- Yaiba-themed DLC costumes for Ryu Hyabusa and Momiji in Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate
Sure, yeah, not exactly hugely valuable items that will cause folk to set their alarms or wait at mightnight or anything, but a fun treat for fans excited for Yaiba's release.
Speaking of a treat for fans, Tecmo Koei and Team Ninja also released over a dozen in-game screenshots showing off Yaiba facing off against Ryu Hyabusa. Yaiba stole his role as protagonist and apparently Ryu doesn't like it any. Or there's some plot thing going on. One of those two. either way the screenshots pain a picture of the type of game Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z is.
Pick up Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z on Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 starting March 18 in North America, March 21 in Europe. For those who pick it up early a special edition will be available in limited quantities as a free upgrade.
