Since licensed Naruto: Shippuden episodes have been airing over the Internet the Shippuden saga canon is free for video game publishers to use. Namco Bandai is on the button with a localized version of Naruto: Narultimate Accel which will be known here as Ultimate Ninja 4: Naruto Shippuden when it comes out in March.
Other than the name change the game’s features sounds the same. Master Mode is a platforming/beat ’em up where you take part in Naruto’s training. It’s an original storyline developed just for Ultimate Ninja 4. You don’t need to play hero mode to get a taste of the Shippuden characters Naruto, Kakashi, and most of the characters are unlocked. However, if you want newcomers like Deidara and Chiyo prepare to spend hours pummeling ninja Dynasty Warriors style in Master’s Mode.
