Namco Bandai Localizing Final PS2 Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Game

imageThe PlayStation 2 isn’t quite done yet. Namco Bandai plans to release Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja 5, a localized version of  Naruto Shippuden: Narultimate Accel 2, in Europe this November.


Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja 5 introduces a partner assist system and has over sixty characters to play with, including post time skip Sasuke. CyberConnect 2 enhanced master mode by letting players command a three man cell instead of just Naruto.


The international version will retain the original Japanese voice acting, but it’s unclear if Namco Bandai is recording an English track.


At the moment this news is just for PAL territories, but if Namco Bandai is making an English version of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja 5 you can count on it coming overseas. This title is also the last game in the Ultimate Ninja series for the PS2. CyberConnect2 is developing a follow up to Accel 2 for the PSP.

    just put in a option to disable support characters and I’ll buy it. i love how fast and competitive the older games can be but once you start spamming supports, the game is instantly broken.

    I agree with you, I love the Narutimett series’s battle system but sadly it got worse with the partner system in Accel 2 (There’s almost no limit of use and are pretty annoying…).

    In the duels with my girlfriend we use to don’t allow the use of partners and the game turns a lot more fun. I hope Narutimett Accel 3 solves this problem.

    Accel 3 probably won’t commit the same mistake of the partners.

    Finally in english,but why did they have to change the logo colors?,the Japanese one’s were pretty cool.

    The game is really,really nice,don’t use R1 during matches and it becames as cool as the others.
