With Spring approaching, Namco Bandai plans to release another game in the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja series for the PlayStation 2. Ultimate Ninja 4: Naruto Shippuden will, once again, be developed by CyberConnect2. It will be released in March and will be the first Naruto game released in America based on the Naruto Shippuden anime.
Ultimate Ninja 4: Naruto Shippuden will add several gameplay modes and characters to the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja series for the first time:
Ultimate Ninja 4: Naruto Shippuden features several unique game modes that offer different experiences as players immerse themselves in the world of ninja. The new Master Mode combines role-playing and action-platforming elements, telling the story of how Naruto came to return to the Hidden Leaf Village after his training with Jiraiya; an original narrative arc that fans won't find anywhere else. Players can collect items in this mode to unlock characters in Free Battle Mode, featuring the series' trademark one-on-one ninja battles for one or two players. Packed with new Naruto Shippuden characters such as Deidara, Sasori and Chiyo as well as updated versions of fan favorites such as Gaara, Kakashi and Sakura, the game features 52 total playable characters to take into battle.
We'll have more soon.
