One of the gazillion Naruto games due out this year has gone gold for the PlayStation 2. For those of you who don’t think that there are that many Naruto games already out and coming out across multiple platforms, well I would list them all for you but I would probably be too old and decrepit before I could finish. Anyway, with this latest Naruto game now having gone gold for the PS2, it means it’s one step closer to the retailer’s shelves.
According to the press release, “In NARUTO: Uzumaki Chronicles 2, an ancient organization which was long thought disbanded is alive and well and in search of several orbs to resurrect a mechanical horror that will ravage the land. It’s now up to Naruto and all the Hidden Leaf Genin to join forces with those of the Hidden Sand Village to stop this menace. Unravel the mystery of the Shirogane Clan and their nefarious army of puppet walkers while mastering lethal attacks and moves straight from the anime series.”
The game – like many of the other Naruto games – could be a pretty cool title based on the given info. Many of the Naruto fighting games are pretty cool and feature some dynamic, kick-butt arcade action. This particular Naruto will be due to ship out for the PlayStation 2 on September 4th. You can check out a fact sheet of the game below or visit the Official Namco-Bandai Website for more information.
