      Dragon Ball Kai: Ultimate Butoden wasn’t localised and it is one of the only brilliant DB titles this generation. Especially if scaled against the fighters like Burst Limit (scaled down from the PS2 Budokai games, outdone by Infinite World and Shin Budokais), Raging Blast (scaled down from PS2 Tenkaichi games) and Ultimate Tenkaichi (some good ideas but hardly a game).

    •  If this were a Naruto game from CyberConnect 2 than I would agree that the possibility of it being localized is 100%. But this game is from Namco Bandai, the company that doesn’t localize .hack games, Tales of games and Valkyria Chronicle games. So yeah, you can never be sure about the localization of this game.

    This looks like it will be better than the Ninja Storm games ! The only good Naruto game out at present Broken Bonds, I had fun playing that.

    I would LOVE to have that Naruto DS case!
