As a number of wise commenters pointed out the screenshots I posted up yesterday appeared to be from Naruto RPG 3: Reijuu vs. Konoha Shoutai and not Naruto RPG 2: Chidori vs. Rasengan. I trust you guys on these kinds of things so I asked a representative for Tomy what the deal was. Was this a hybrid of Naruto RPG 2 and Naruto RPG 3?
Nope! Naruto: Path of Ninja 2 is simply a localized version of Naruto RPG 3: Reijuu vs. Konoha Shoutai. Good work everyone! Well, everyone, but me. Seriously, thanks to everyone who pointed this out. Even though I mixed the two games up I’m glad that I can get a concrete answer for all of you.
