Namco Bandai Localizing Final PS2 Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Game


imageThe PlayStation 2 isn’t quite done yet. Namco Bandai plans to release Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja 5, a localized version of  Naruto Shippuden: Narultimate Accel 2, in Europe this November.


Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja 5 introduces a partner assist system and has over sixty characters to play with, including post time skip Sasuke. CyberConnect 2 enhanced master mode by letting players command a three man cell instead of just Naruto.


The international version will retain the original Japanese voice acting, but it’s unclear if Namco Bandai is recording an English track.


At the moment this news is just for PAL territories, but if Namco Bandai is making an English version of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja 5 you can count on it coming overseas. This title is also the last game in the Ultimate Ninja series for the PS2. CyberConnect2 is developing a follow up to Accel 2 for the PSP.
