Another Naruto RPG finds a path to the DS

As we predicted earlier, Tomy is working on Naruto: Path of the Ninja 2 and it’s coming out in September 2008. The second Naruto RPG contains an original plot that appears to be a localization of Naruto RPG 2: Chidori vs. Rasengan. However, the US version is quite different because it includes Nintendo Wi-Fi battles, a first for the Naruto RPG series. Players will be able to utilize the 30 characters and fight somehow. Although, it seems likely online fights be RPG combat style with a turn order and bottom screen scratching. I doubt Tomy is going to create a two player fighting mini game just for online play.

 

Naruto: Path of the Ninja 2 will be the first Naruto game in North America from Tomy online play. Hopefully, this experiment will lead to online fights in the inevitable Naruto Shippuden: Gekitou Ninja Taisen EX 3.

 

Update: As a number of you pointed out this is NOT Naruto RPG 2: Chidori vs. Rasengan. Naruto Path of Ninja 2 is a localized version of Naruto RPG 3: Reijuu vs. Konoha Shoutai.

    Wow, this is quite suprising.
    Those screenshots are from Naruto RPG 3! Why in the world would Tomy skip RPG 2? This seems like quite a bad move considering how good (although short) RPG 2 is.

    Oh well, I guess this just spells frustration for those that don’t import. :/

    perhaps i might buy this… the last naruto game i bought was so bad i gifted it to my narutard friend

    If I recall correctly, It was the third RPG in Japan that had over 30 characters and online. Not only that, those two screenshots look like they are from the third RPG (The scroll dude is the main antagonist in the left in the third, and that seal thing on the right is from the third If I recall correctly)

    Maybe this is a hybrid of RPG 2 and thee, since Shippuden starts the end of this year

    And it better Be Clash of Revolution 2 to have Wi-Fi

    Well crap, Gasshu beat me to it.

    Though it is possible they may make a hybrid of 2 and three, giving NA territories a longer and better game

    “featuring an all-new original storyline”

    It is either a hybrid or 3 exclusively.

    I hope there’s the option to turn voices off. I’m guessing they’ll be too cheap to have Japanese voices as an option.
