Next Naruto Game Is A Bit Like… Dynasty Warriors

imageShonen Jump has a the scoop on a new Naruto game. According to magazine leaks, Narultimate Impact is coming to PSP this fall from Namco Bandai. Surprisingly, this portable Naruto title is not another fighting game or Monster Hunter clone (Kizuna Drive pictured). The game is said to have a Dynasty Warriors-like system.


Back in December, we uncovered a trademark for Ultimate Ninja Impact filed in Europe and later registered in North America. That’s probably the English subtitle, so we’re going to go out on a limb and guess the game’s English name will be Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Impact.

    Hmm. i hope it’s done right. i like dynasty warriors..could be fun for a good bit.

  • SoulArbiter

    It would be a nice change for the Naruto games, but if I wanted to play Dynasty Warriors, I’d just play Dynasty Warriors – or Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes.

  • Jonathan Andrade

    lol Kizuna Drive isn’t even out in the US yet, and they’ve already announced another game.

      Remember this is Naruto. Milking has a lot to do with it (not that the games are bad).

      • Tim_at_where

        AKA the more contemporary version of Dragonball, in terms of milking.

  • Ex Detsu

    If the game is actually a work of quality, it might be worth purchasing.

  • Tsunayoshi Sawada

    WOW!!! Best news to wake up to, another Naruto game! Its gonna be epic! Hopefully it gets added to the PSN so I can download it and Kizuna Drive for my NGP!!!

    I so can not wait to see what other characters they incorporate from the manga.

  • Gabriel May

    I think it was a given it was nothing like Monster Hunter due to none of the complexities seemingly being included. Should keep Naruto fans happy but I can’t see this as being anything more then decent (was tempted to say medicore)

  • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

    So they’re doing with Naruto what they just did with Bleach….well, I hope it works better

  • karasuKumo

    It could go horribly wrong but also brilliantly well depending on who is making it. If CC2 are making it (I presume they are by the “Narutimate” name) then I believe it’ll be decent.

    It’s on portable consoles so the characters will probably be slow :(. Also if it is an original plot then it could turn out bad. Although if it sticks to the story and has a good fast pace and variety of special moves, combos and new characters then it’ll be good. I’m hoping it is the later but I haven’t got high expectations yet.

  • Bobby Jennings

    I hope this goes well

  • Flailthroughs

    They ought to just get Omega Force to develop it, since DW Gundam proves they have a working relationship with Koei.

    But if Kizuna Drive is Naruto Monster Hunter, I’mma have to try that…

  • Justin H

    Anyone know if the full scan from Jump has showed up online yet? Hopefully it’ll say if Cyber Connect is the developer.

  • kidhyuga

    i was hoping this was a storm-like game for the NGP
