Another storm is brewing as NAMCO
BANDAI Games America Inc. announced today that it will be releasing NARUTO
SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM 2 for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3. Based
on the popular NARUTO SHIPPUDEN animated series from VIZ Media, LLC, the game
will drum up a squall of new features and enhancements, an extensive character
roster as well as incredible visuals that are sure to please fans and gamers
alike. NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM 2 is scheduled to be released
throughout North America in fall 2010.

“With NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate
Ninja STORM 2, we are continuing our legacy of providing the most authentic
ninja action experience, for which the Ultimate Ninja series is known, and are
excited to bring this larger-than-life game to both the PlayStation 3 system and
Xbox 360,” said Todd Thorson, director of marketing and public relations with
NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. “This latest iteration not only improves upon
the series’ signature gameplay, but further propels the NARUTO SHIPPUDEN
interactive universe to greater heights with new features and unprecedented
visual detail.”

Developed by CyberConnect2, NARUTO
SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM 2 faithfully recreates the anime series and
fully immerses players in the mythical ninja world with new expansive
environments, missions, battle systems and gameplay modes. Taking players
through the NARUTO SHIPPUDEN story arc, daring ninja warriors must strategically
recruit the right support characters to ensure victory against any and all
opponents. With the winning combination, players can easily unleash bigger and
more explosive Team Special Techniques to obliterate enemies who stand in the
way.

With more than 40 characters to
choose from, engaging in bigger and more epic cinematic boss battles has never
been this intense. Players will encounter a host of Akatsuki ninja in the game
and, in a shocking story twist, see Sasuke wearing Akatsuki gear. With its
signature battles, interactive environments, original Japanese voiceovers and a
host of unlockable items, NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM 2 is a tornado
of fierce ninja action that cannot be missed.
