Namco Bandai Brings Us Naruto Shippuden Games Next Year

image Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm just hit the market, but Namco Bandai hasn’t forgotten about the PlayStation 2. Thanks to ryne11 sending in a scan of Shonen Jump we know Namco Bandai USA is busy working on “Ultimate Ninja 4: Naruto Shippuden”. The awkward sounding title is actually a localized version of Naruto: Narultimate Accel which includes a blend of pre-time skip and post-time skip Naruto characters. Fifty two of them are in the game. This number includes newcomers like Chiyo, Deidara, and Sasori. New to this game is a full 3D action mode which is similar to the Naruto: Uzumaki Chronicles series. While this Naruto game unlike the slew of other Naruto games on the market focuses on the next chapter of Naruto classic moments and battles from Naruto’s past are part of the game’s “heroes” mode.
