A trailer for Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z has stepped out of the shadows, giving us another reason to destroy demons and the undead with crazy sword skills.

The difference is that this Ninja Gaiden title doesn't star Ryu Hyabusa, but features Yaiba Kamikaze as the protagonist.

Yaiba was thought to have been killed by Ryu, but now walks around on a mad quest for vengeance. Along the way, he'll cut swaths through zombies in cel-shaded adventure.

Watch the trailer above and let us know what you think about the demonic ninja Yaiba and his hunt for Ryu. The game is set for a Q1 2014 release on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and iOS.
