The PlayStation 2 is still on a roll. There’s tons of games coming out for Sony’s previous-gen console and some of them happen to riddled in innovation and fun concepts. One of those games happens to be Naruto: Uzumaki Chronicles 2. It’s an adventure fighting game that takes Naruto and his friends on a wicked-cool adventure with breathtaking fighting.
If there’s one thing I have to tip my hat off to Namco Bandai on is their seemingly excellent choices for publishing PS2 titles. I’m not saying all their games are great, but hot dang-it, Naruto games are just a blast. And if there’s any indication from the following trailer, and the provided fact sheet, this game just may keep the PS2's momentum in high gear.
“In response to the overwhelming success, we felt compelled to give fans a superior sequel to NARUTO: Uzumaki Chronicles by digging deeper into the series; allowing gamers to become further engulfed into the ninja lifestyle,” said Makoto Iwai, Executive Vice President and COO at NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc, “NARUTO: Uzumaki Chronicles 2 will deliver the excitement of ninja combat on a massive scale while remaining true to the unique franchise.”
