Namco doing yet more Naruto for PS2

First to be based on Shippuden anime.

Namco Bandai plans to release a brand new Naruto PS2 game here in May.

Ultimate Ninja 4 will be the first instalment based on the Naruto Shippuden anime. It is set two-and-a-half years after the ninja left his friends to pursue his craft.

That's exciting for fans of the series, because all sorts will have changed for his return, which soon sees him uncovering a threat from a mysterious organisation called Akatsuki. Dun dun dun.

The main Master mode combines RPG and action, and tells the story of Naruto's return to Hidden Leaf Village. There's a Free Battle mode boasting the usual one-on-one fights to accompany the main campaign, and more characters than ever to pick from.
