Takara Tomy is going to beat Namco Bandai by a few months with the first game based on the post time skip Naruto. Eighting who developed the Clash of Ninja / Geiktou Ninja Taisen games is handling the work on Naruto Shippuuden: Gekitou Ninja Taisen EX. There are new motion controls where you can charge chakra for Naruto’s rasengan by waving the remote around and like other games in the series you can battle with four players. While the game has barely been displayed, it’s coming out real soon. Japan gets it on February 22, 2007.
Update: Scans over at GoNintendo reveal that the classic controller and Gamecube controller can be used in Naruto Shippuden: Gekitou Ninja Taisen EX. The pictures also show how different attacks can be done, like if you move the remote down Naruto does a downwards punching attack. Confirmed characters in the game are: Naruto, Sakura, Kakashi, Neji, Lee, Guy, TenTen, Gaara, TEmari, Kankuro, Kisame, Itachi, Deidara.
