The final day of the EB Games Expo saw OXCGN get a look at some titles they might have missed over the weekend.
It was a day to relax and take in the whole spectacle. Walk around, chat to gamers about their favourite experience so far, and go back for a second round of what games we enjoyed the most.
When OXCGN wasn’t lining up for their 37th round of Titanfall, we got a look at these upcoming games.
Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z
Thoughts: I didn’t really know what to expect from Tecmo Koei’s Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, other than assuming it would have some hack-and-slash, combo-chaining gameplay.
Were my expectations blown out of the way.
Not only does Yaiba provide this type of gameplay, but it turns everything up to 11.
Yaiba exists in the same Ninja Gaiden universe as the previous titles, with players taking on the role of the ninja Yaiba.
The beginning sees Yaiba and series protagonist Ryu Hayabusa doing battle, in which Ryu slices apart the brazen Ninja, killing him.
Yaiba is then rebuilt with cybernetic parts from a mysterious organisation, who then goes on a quest for revenge, all the while dealing with a zombie infestation.
Ninja Gaiden Z is a more adult take on the series, with Yaiba himself full of profanites and violent tendencies.
The atmosphere follows suit too.
