Inafune's Comcept reveals next game, Yaiba

The Mega Man creator is making a zombie game

Comcept, the studio founded by Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune, has announced its new game project, entitled Yaiba. Yaiba will be a zombie action game featuring a cyborg ninja protagonist. Apparently, fans have been asking Inafune - who's worked on zombie-related titles like Resident Evil, Onimusha, and Dead Rising during his time at Capcom - when he's going to be doing his next zombie game.

"Everywhere I go, people ask me, 'When is it coming?'" said Inafune. "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."

"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."

No release date for the game was given.

Just a heads-up guys; when I click on that video it says 'This video is private' and just shows static in the background. Never seen that on YouTube before.

Does anyone know what role specifically Inafune played in the early Resident Evil games? Because I would think more of Mikami as the 'zombie game creator'. Also would be interested to know what platforms Yaiba will be appearing on. And I'd also like to know more about Soul Survivor as well.

Zombies are a great fav chestnut. Something about the genre is grants it literally undead immortality and I doubt if we really ever get tired of some zombie, infected variant. Maybe it the survivalism instinct in all of us. maybe its hard to explain but encapsulated by the zombie...
