After seven Naruto: Clash of Ninja fighting games in Japan, Tomy is taking the license in a new direction with Naruto Shippuden: Dragon Sword Chronicles.
This upcoming Wii game is an action game that gives Naruto a scroll laden outfit and a glowing dragon sword. He uses this sword to battle enemies and Team Snake. Naruto Shippuden: Dragon Sword Chronicles appears to use a brand 3D new engine since it doesn’t have cel-shading like the Clash of Ninja titles. Check out Famitsu for a few more screenshots.
Tomy plans to release Dragon Sword Chronicles on November 26 in Japan. No plans have been announced for a North American release and it’s unclear if Tomy USA will include this content in Naruto Shippuden: Clash of Ninja Revolution 3. I wouldn’t count on it though since the game we’re getting in North America this holiday season is a fighting game with online play.
