CyberConnect2’s Naruto PS3 project storms into North America


I heard about Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm last week, which sounded like an extension of Naruto Shippuden to me. Hurricane Chronicles and storm are both related to weather. Maybe this would be a localized version of Naruto Shippuden: Narultimate Accel?


Nope! Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm had a surprise reveal on the PlayStation page with Kotaku spotting the news on The Magic Box. Namco Bandai is moving on with the PlayStation 3 version of Naruto, which sticks to the youthful characters all the way up to the rescue Sasuke arc. Players pick a three man squad and take on 100 missions in Ultimate Mission Mode. Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm looks gorgeous, but the game will only have 25 characters. Five slots are taken up by Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, Kakashi and Neji, which leaves you to guess who the remaining 20 characters will be.
