Namco Bandai started their Naruto announcements by officially unveiling Naruto Shippuden: Kizuna Drive, a four player co-op game for PSP where characters are divided into roles. For example, Naruto is an attacker, Sakura/Ino specialize in recovery, Shikamaru/Sai play supporting roles, and Kakashi is an all purpose ninja. Squads have to use their abilities as a team to beat missions. Naruto Shippuden: Kizuna Drive is on track for 2010.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 took the stage afterwards. As we mentioned earlier, the game is being made for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Namco Bandai confirmed the news and Impress Watch reports Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 is due in Japan this fall.
Since Namco Bandai released Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm in North America a few months before Japan, we’re betting on a domestic release around the same time.
