CyberConnect2 President Takes Naruto Fandom To A Sage Level

By Spencer . July 4, 2011 . 12:35am

cc2We’ve heard CyberConnect2 makers of Solatorobo: Red the Hunter and the Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja series are die hard Naruto fans. Their office has a library of Naruto manga and, oh, that’s Hiroshi Matsuyama, the company’s president, dressed up as Naruto.


This photo was taken at Japan Expo by Tekken series producer Katsuhiro Harada. Perhaps, CyberConnect2’s staff and president have fervor for all of their projects. Solatorobo: Red the Hunter may have the most fleshed out world on the Nintendo DS this year. The first town is bustling with dog-people, buildings, and a Starbucks parody.


Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Impact, CyberConnect2’s next Naruto game, comes out on October 20 in Japan. The PSP game is slated for fall in North America and Europe.

  • Still amazes me there’s hardcore Naruto fans.

    • Asura

      I could believe it a few years back. Now I can’t.

  • M’iau M’iaut

    And we’re positive this isn’t Tsuna cosplaying as the company president, cosplaying as Naruto?

    • [The Hunter] Doomrider

      We are! TS wouldn’t have his shirt on. Or something.

      Right, TS?

      • Heh

      • M’iau M’iaut

        Tsuna doesn’t need to feel embarrassed. Genshiken long ago taught cosplay is cosplay and real life is real life. 

        Now if we can just get him to give up on his real life fixation on Naruto….

    This is the best naruto cosplay I’ve seen so far.

  • [The Hunter] Doomrider

    Ahah, he has done it before and I love it. It would be more interesting if he did some Red cosplay, though =P

  • “Solatorobo: Red the Hunter may have the most fleshed out world on the Nintendo DS this year.”

    I’m curious, what Nintendo DS game, out of its entire library, do you think has the most fleshed out game world?

  • I’m so mad at CyberConnect2. They rather make crappy Naruto gamed then improve .hack. Bastards.

    • KotaroInugami

      Unless you know… They are making good Naruto games and not crappy .Hack games.
