The game follows the steps of Yaiba, a defeated by the protagonist ninja Ryu Hayabusa, who is brought back to life with mechanical parts, seeking vengeance amidst a zombie apocalypse. Check out some useful tips to survive and succeed in the game.

Stay tuned to visual signals
Whenever something is hurting you the screen displays something kind of signal. When zombie torsos cling and drain the energy of Yaiba, various zombie hands appear around the screen. If fire is consuming the remains of their body parts, there will be flames around the camera. Pay attention to these details not to lose energy for nothing. To get rid of torsos or delete slide fire with a (X360) or X button (PS3)

Learn when to use the current
One of the weapons of greater range of Yaiba's Flail, a chain with hook used by ninjas that closely resembles the pattern of Kratos in God of War series, however, despite its great range and ability to hit multiple enemies at the same time, currents cause very little damage and are not effective against stronger enemies or torsos. However, they are useful against electrical enemies.

Zombies can be good weapons
As mentioned, the current Yaiba does not cause much damage, but if you're dealing with weak zombies can grab them using the trigger RT (X360) or R2 (PS3) and use them as a weapon using the same attack button the current. You can also upgrade your character to be able to use stronger zombies as a weapon.

Keep your enemies close
In Ninja Gaiden Z you will not regain power in the traditional way as in other games. Here you regain energy running weak enemies, using the trigger LT (X360) or L2 (PS3). That means you can keep a group of weaker enemies around you as an energy reserve while fighting the strongest.

Do not waste the special weapons
When performing weaker enemies you gain energy, but when running the strongest, get special weapons such as the Nun-Chuckles or Rigor Mortar. These guns are extremely powerful and should be retained to face stronger enemies, because unfortunately they have unlimited use. You can however drop them and pick them up again with the trigger RT (X360) or R2 (PS3) because they do not disappear.

Learning to fight back
A technique that guarantees the player a huge advantage in combat is the counterattack. Pressing the RB (X360) or R1 (PS3) button defense at the right time you can counter an enemy blow. It is very difficult to get used to the right reaction time and not all strokes can be counteracted, but you may notice that when a circle appears near the enemy closing. A good tactic is to start training the counter attack with missiles.

Improving your combos
As soon as possible you should spend your experience points on two skills: Cyber Arm Flail Mastery and Mastery, the left side of his first upgrade: Sword Opener. They help to create new combos using his mechanical arm and chain flail, thus ensuring more dynamic in the way they fight.

Use the Cyber vision often
One of the elements deployed in robotic eye Yaiba is Cyber vision in LB (X360) or L1 (PS3), a view commonly used to indicate some secret element in the scene, but that can be very useful if used for other functions as well button. For example, Cyber vision offers contrast in the fighting and still leads the way with arrows when you are lost.

Tying up loose ends
Another very useful ability to buy with your experience points is Loose Ends, which is just below the Sword Opener. She will let you perform halves of zombies, are torsos or legs without weakening them before, just pressing the trigger LT (X360) or L2 (PS3).

Chemical reactions
The enemies of Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z are certain elements like fire and electricity, which can be combined to create unexpected effects. For example, when playing an enemy in an electrical fire, it creates a storm of static that causes damage to all opponents around you. Try some combinations to become the fastest fighting.
