So… many… Naruto games are coming in North America and Japan. Instead of breaking these videos into separate posts and going into Naruto overload I’m lining up the trailers for Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution (Wii / USA), Naruto: Path of Ninja (DS /USA) and Naruto Shippuuden: Narultimate Accel 2 (PS2 / Japan) in this entry.
Let’s start with Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution. A few other characters are confirmed in this trailer like Tsunade, Orochimaru and Kisame. The video also has a player demonstrating the game’s motion controls, but in reality you don’t control the game like that at all. You could emulate uppercuts and kunai slashes, but shaking the remote has the same effect.
Time to move on to Naruto: Path of Ninja. This is a remix of the Game Boy Advance game so it uses sprite graphics, but the combat system has been switched around with some elements from the DS games. Path of Ninja starts from the beginning of the series and goes all the way up to the invasion of the sound ninja.
While most of the world is still working through the first arc, CyberConnect2 is getting Naruto Shippuuden: Narultimate Accel 2. Japan gets this on December 20th and at this point a US release seems extremely unlikely. It’s a shame too because the tweaks to the fighting system like permanent partner characters sound fantastic.
