In NARUTO: Ultimate Ninja Heroes 2, a mysterious
ghostly castle appears in the sky, casting an ominous shadow over the peaceful
Hidden Leaf Village. As Naruto approaches the castle to try and discover the
source of this disturbance, he is confronted by a strange masked woman who
confronts him with disturbing visions of his past and threatening illusions.

of his ninja skills to overcome this powerful new threat and save the village.

fighting engine, the game debuts new characters for a player roster of more than
20 memorable combatants equipped with new jutsu for more acrobatic ninja
fighting than ever before. Providing the most authentic NARUTO experience
possible, fans can choose to play through the full game with either English or
