Uzumaki Chronicles 2 for the PS2 is the (obvious) sequel to Uzumaki Chronicles and picks up where the first game finished off. Set to be released on September 4th this game sports a complete graphical overhaul, with more of the anime style that was missing from the first game. The game is also going to feature fully-voiced cut scenes, though sadly no Japanese language track.

 

 

This time Naruto and pals will have an entirely new enemy to face, the Shirogane Clan and their army of "puppet walkers" which were created specifically for the game. Also new is the ability to grab a friend and fight through the game in co-op mode. If working together isn't your thing there's also a Vs. mode for you and your friends to do battle. In addition to the main quest and Vs. mode there's a side mission mode and a survival mode which will put you to the ultimate test to prove your ninja worth.

 

There's a bunch of characters to unlock for Vs. mode, from favorites like Rock Lee and Shikamaru to "villains" that as of now remain unnamed. Though I did ask if we'd be able to play as the newly created Shirogane clan members and sadly the answer was no.

 

We asked about how they were able to tie in the Sand ninja as allies in the story since it hasn't been revealed that they are going to help out Konoha in the anime and we were told to think of this game as an alternate timeline in the US, where there's no rift between the Sand Ninja yet. Other than that there aren't any other localization differences between this game and the Japanese version.

 

The game will hit the PS2 on September 4th for $39.99. Screenshots after the break.

    I am assuming by “yet to be named “villains”" you mean that crappy guy that is the final canon bad guy in part 1, or are there more playable characters than those outside the anime/manga cast that I was unaware of? I thought that would have been edited out, that is cool

    So other than a simple story tweak, nothing is being altered, not even the 1 tailed Naruto Transformation? That is cool

    This game looks pretty good. Probably not an 8+ game, but great for a nerd like me

    By bad guys they mean two(im not tellin which are they) and they are from the anime/manga

  • OTKKyuubi

    I think I know who the two villains of game that are unlockable are.Two members of Akatsuki and that’s all I’m going to say.

  • Byakugan Master

    Hello, have you been watching the show this year?! It is obvious that the two villains are Itachi and Kisame.
