Namco Bandai is preparing yet another Naruto game for PSP. Instead of the four-man cell focus from Naruto Shippuden: Kizuna Drive, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Impact piles the screen with dozens of ninja for Naruto to crush. The first screenshots of the game show Naruto in Sage mode locked in a battle with Pain.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Impact supports up to two players for ad-hoc play, but Namco Bandai has not outlined the multiplayer mode. The game is slated for release in Japan this fall under the name Naruto Shippuden: Narultimate Impact. While an international release has not been announced, Namco Bandai filed a trademark for Ultimate Ninja Impact in the U.S. and Europe. On top of being a Naruto title, that’s a pretty good sign that we’ll see Ultimate Ninja Impact outside of Japan.
