Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Impact’s Tiny Trailer Shows 8-Tails Fight


A recent issue of V-Jump magazine said a trailer for CyberConnect2’s new Dynasty Warriors-style Naruto brawler, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Impact, was on its way, and here it is…in a tiny resolution.



We already knew Sasuke would be playable and fight Killer Bee’s 8-tails form, and it now looks like Neji and Lee are, too. I believe I also spotted Hinata around the 0:42 mark. Ultimate Ninja Impact supports up to two players for ad-hoc multiplayer. You can find more screenshots in this older post.


Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Impact is slated for release this fall in Japan. While Namco Bandai haven’t announced the game for an overseas release yet, they did subtitle the “Ultimate Ninja Impact” subtitle in America and Europe. The game’s original Japanese title is Narutimate Impact.
