Naruto Shippuden: Geiktou Ninja Taisen EX 2 coming this year

narutoex2.jpgYou knew it was in development and it was only a matter of time until Tomy announced it. However, I didn’t think it would be so soon. Tomy has Naruto Shippuden: Geiktou Ninja Taisen EX 2 scheduled to come out sometime this year. There are going to be 30 characters in the game, way more than the meager fourteen characters in EX 1. Post time skip Sasuke is one of them even though he hasn’t been featured in the anime yet, he is prominently plastered on the pages of the V-Jump scans.


See the scans and a hint about a new hand sign system past the break.

  • Wow, 30 playable characters huh? If it was possible to play this on my NA Wii I would actually consider importing this one. I also thought that Sasuke with in NS:EX, I’m surprised they even released NS:EX with out all of Team 7…

    I think you can play this game without a freeloader it was on youtube. You need to put in the US game first then go to game cube.Afterwards press eject and start on the wii but make sure you put the import game in there.And vhoala you can play imports but it takes a couple of tries and for some games you need the freeloader.

    Guess you didn’t hear. The Wii update last week, or was it the week before?, broke peoples Freeloaders.

  • Just to clarify something Naruto Shippuden: Geiktou Ninja Taisen EX 2 is for the Wii, not the Gamecube. To date there is no Freeloader from Datel that allows gamers to switch the region for Wii games.

  • I’m definitely gonna pick this up. Looks like it getting a Japanese Wii was worth it.

  • At this point, the GNTex series is in a lot of trouble…

    The last series of games was the first time ever that a new Narutimate game was announced before the Gekitou Ninja Taisen series. Just weeks after NA1 was announced, they announced GNTex. Not only that, but GNTex went from announcement to release in under 3 months, making it actually come out before NA1! A total rush job.

    The game was recieved to be so bad that much of the GNT scene decided to pretend it didnt exist. Now GNTex2 has just been announced… from announcement to release in only a month! Thats an even bigger rush job! Not only that, but from the release of GNTex to GNTex2 will be under a year! Not only that, but to announce Sasuke as playable on the first announcement! GNTex2 sounds like a complete act of desperation for the series.

    Clash of Ninja Revolution will be good enough for me for now

    I think its going to be better than the other piece of junk

    While I would love to play as the grown up Sasuke and the rest of the Shipuuden characters, you got a point about this being rushed out, what makes one more concerned is the first EX being such a lackluster game that received nothing but lukewarm reviews.. I hope this would turn out good though. The 2nd arc of the manga is great, but I can’t say the same about the Shipuuden anime so far w/ such slow pacing. I was just watching the 100 ep marathon this weekend on Cartoon Network and I must say it was more exciting back then.

    OTTKKYUBI said the following : You need to put in the US game first then go to game cube. Afterwards press eject and start on the wii but make sure you put the import game in there.

    Can you tell me what you mean by putting in the US Game first? Does this many any US Wii Game or something? I just didn’t get that part of your statement.

  • I think the first game was complete crap, because you couldn’t play 4 player without it glitching all the time. In this game i hope they don’t have it glitch in 4 player, also if there are over 30 playable characters that would make it better already.

  • dud what are the controls?????? waaa
