narutosp Since licensed Naruto: Shippuden episodes have been airing over the Internet the Shippuden saga canon is free for video game publishers to use. Namco Bandai is on the button with a localized version of Naruto: Narultimate Accel which will be known here as Ultimate Ninja 4: Naruto Shippuden when it comes out in March.


Other than the name change the game’s features sounds the same. Master Mode is a platforming/beat ’em up where you take part in Naruto’s training. It’s an original storyline developed just for Ultimate Ninja 4. You don’t need to play hero mode to get a taste of the Shippuden characters Naruto, Kakashi, and most of the characters are unlocked. However, if you want newcomers like Deidara and Chiyo prepare to spend hours pummeling ninja Dynasty Warriors style in Master’s Mode.

    Took me a bit over 5 hours to beat ”Master Mode” in Accel.This is a great game,the RPG mode is just wonderful,the graphics are amazing.The only bad thing is that the story only covers about 15 episodes of Shippuden.The rest is covered by Accel 2.

    I guess Accel 2 will come out in english eventually…..but…what about Accel 3?!!!!

  • pecavuk

    I never played Accel 2,but if it covers the whole Shippuden episodes,there’s isn’t going to be a Accel 3.If it doesn’t cover all the episodes,there will be a 3rd.It’s all about the money. =]

    Accel 1 doesnt cover all the shippuden story, its only the Gaara arc

  • Stan Smith

    Naruto Accel will be covering the release of episodes 1- 17 ( Naruto’s Homecoming-the Kazekage Retevial Arc) followed by Naruto Accel 2 wich will cover episodes 18-56 (Team Kakashi Replacement Arc-The Team 7 Reunion Arc) the profit of Accel and its sequel will have NOTHING to to with the production of Accel 3 as it is based on the proceeding episodes, the production will Only take place if and when the series debuts on cartoonnetwork and how the fans react to there favorite characters becoming older and more mature if they can handle it by episode 56 then a third game will be released based on the invasion of the Akatsuki members Hidan and Kakuzu and the Death of Asuma.
