Keiji Inafune and Comcept's Beck from Mighty No. 9, the robotic star of the Mega Man spiritual successor that found success on Kickstarter, is making a cameo appearance in another game, Team Ninja and Spark Unlimited's Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z.

According to the Japanese Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z website, the star of Mighty No. 9 will make an appearance in the gory action game as part of a downloadable content pack. Beck is one of three costumes currently planned, but it's not clear if the costume will be available outside of Japan.

Having a cartoonish super-powered robot show up in a zombie game is something Inafune has some experience with. While he was still at Capcom, Mega Man's outfit made an appearance in Dead Rising, and Proto Man later appeared in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.

Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z is slated for release in March 2014. Mighty No. 9 is expected sometime in 2015.
