Danzo And Sasuke Square Off In Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Impact

By Spencer . June 27, 2011 . 12:45am

imageDanzo Shimura, the leader of Root and a Hokage candidate, is also a playable character in Naurto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Impact.


A scan in Shonen Jump shows Sasuke fighting with Danzo who acts as a boss character. Similar to CyberConnect2’s Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm games, their PSP title also has quick time events where players scramble to enter commands. Another screenshot from the scan shows Danzo, in the hands of a player, using a wind technique on a group of enemies.


Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Impact is slated for a fall in Japan. Namco Bandai confirmed the PSP game will be released North America and Europe.

    Nice :D looking forward to how far in the story this goes, much like ultimate ninja storm generations. Both games look very promising

  • So well play as danzo pretty much nobody like danzo

    • Asura

      Danzou was the only redeeming factor in Naruto for a while. It was damn Forest Fighter (as opposed to Street) for a while, then Danzou actually acted like a proper ninja, which the series mutilated in its time, because close to nobody is a bloody ninja.

      • I thought Shino is a Ninja too. 

      • people need to to stop this real ninja crap face facts for that world they are ninja full stop it doesn’t matter what you want or believe a ninja to be as it has no bearing on what a ninja in the Naruto world is or are you going to level the same criticism to every other anime and manga cause most do the exact same thing.

        • Yu_TheKing

          It more or less is determined by how you define “ninja” or “Soul Reaper” or “All Powerful Demon Capable Of Destroying Everything With a Single Glance.”

        • Asura

          I could care less if you’re fine with Naruto world ninjas. I’m not fond of it. At least DBZ didn’t call their warriors samurai -_-.

    • i like to see danzo getting killed

  • I thought Danzo was the leader of The Foundation. Surprising that the JPN name is Root, while Foundation is the American name. Sasuke looks cool, cant wait to destroy Danzo with the true Sharingan powers, hate that Sharingarm. 

    • Asura

      Is that what they translated Root as…? Or did they purposefully change it for some reason?

      • It was always the Foundation ever since I remember it being introduced in Naruto pt 1.   Though looking on the Naruto Wikia, I guess foundation is the literal translation? I dont think I ever saw anyone call it Root, tbh, this was the first time Ive seen it in my years of Naruto.

        • I thought it had to do with Danzo and his people being the dark side of konoha, something unseen, like the roots of a tree protecting it unseen, or some jazz like that.

          • Asura

            Yeah, that Root was supposed to be shallow shounen symbolism. Doesn’t work as well with Foundation, even if the roots of a tree are the “foundation” in a sense, it’s just forcing an extra step in.

  • anbu

    I just wish we get this game here in NA. 

  • karasuKumo

    I like Danzo’s abilities so it shall be fun to play as him (In my opinion the best Wind-type user). I like Sasuke’s artwork too, looks creepy haha.

    • 1021017ify

      Actually the best wind type user was the fourth hokage and Naruto but that is my opinion.

      • Asura

        4th Hokage was NEVER shown to have Wind, and Naruto knows two bloody moves (with one being a more powerful version of the other).

        Ugh, I feel gross for engaging in dumb Naruto conversation for the first time in years.

        • Well I guess Naruto would be the best Wind User, only one to add it to Rasengan, lovely.

  • Meh, need more gameplay videos…

  • Yu_TheKing

    Please have either a PSN release or Vita D:

    So can’t wait for another Naruto game :D

  • so there will be susano awaken for sasuke
