Man, things are getting crazy at Gamescom with Yaiba. Can you say Ninjas and Zombies , Bitches! As the slogan goes above, All The Time Bitches. Coming in early 2014, this Tecmo Koei game which is also in relation with Epic Games, Spark, Team Ninja, etc is looking to bring the fun and slashing like no other combining to love of zombies in video games.
At Gamescom, Tecmo is giving us a warning about the zombies or stiffs as you may call them and how we should be aware of how much a threat they are. They come in different forms as you will see below with relative information on them.
A mysterious substance called ‘compound 72′ has leaked from the Lazarev Laboratory causing many of our townsmen to display curious behaviour and unnatural appetites.
Little is known about how this disaster occurred, but regrettably it can’t be avoided. Sooner or later you too will be a stiff.
So far the below types of stiffs have been identified – this way you can stay informed of what it is that will eventually kill you (don’t hold high hopes that anyone will escape this hell, even the army didn’t make it).
1. The Infected (Normal Stiff)
Most of our ex-neighbours and friends stink. You might have thought they stunk when they were alive too, but now their odour is unmistakeably horrible. They seem to be stronger, faster, (a hell of a lot) uglier and stupider than they were in life and if you have keen sense of smell you might be able to avoid them- for a minute or two.
These electricity-charged stiffs seem to be producing their own electric power. It’s actually amusing, but if these guys were contained they could actually produce free electricity for all! However, given the fact that almost everyone is dead or hiding, TV and microwave ovens should be the least of your worries. Remember high school physics and either try to ground them or drown them. Either way you won’t have much time to act.
3. Burning Infected (Fire Stiff)
Don’t approach them unless you’re cold or tired of living and want to leave life in flames. They are ever-burning, glow in the dark, hideously disfigured and smell disturbingly like BBQ.
If you are an optimist who believes the army will come to this city’s rescue- don’t be. Those idiots already came and skilfully managed to get themselves infected WHILE WEARING THEIR SUITS. So now they are trapped in there, feeding on their own flesh and producing some sort of green toxic bile that looks extremely disgusting and highly corrosive.
On the other hand, if you look to the clergy for an answer to your prayers- look again. They are nowhere to be found. Apart from this one priest that roams the city with a scorching censer- hopefully reading everyone their posthumous last rites, but most likely wreaking vengeance on whoever he thinks is wicked and sinful; so pretty much everyone that walks past him.
The rich and famous did not escape this scourge either! Local celebrity and world famous ex-boxer and MMA fighter Vseslav Degtyarev has fallen victim to the infection and is now laying his award winning punches to everyone in range. Yes, some might judge him for that brief assault case, or for the fact his career didn’t end in the most pleasant note, but look at him now! Strong as ever! Agile as a panther! Quick as a.. quickly rotting undead thing.
To be honest, no one really knows what this is. It seems to be some sort of experiment gone wrong as it has two heads and is slightly over-sized. It also seems to be hungry all the time and does cry a lot when it doesn’t suck on some poor passer-by’s bone marrow.
As it’s the size of a truck you’ll probably see and hear it long before it sees and hears you, but there’s nowhere to left hide, is there?
After this news about the different zombies of Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, I’m really looking forward to this game. Stay tuned for more info here by subscribing above, if you haven’t done so already.
