A sequel to Narutimate Hero is bound for the PS2; developer also hints at new RPG.

TOKYO--Game developer CyberConnect2 is working on a sequel to its Naruto fighting game. That news was released on the developer's Web site as well as in the popular Japanese weekly, Jump.

Currently titled Narutimate Hero 2, the sequel will be released on the PlayStation 2. Details on the title are scarce at the moment, but it's known that an upgraded game system and cel-shading techniques (as was featured in the original Narutimate Hero) will be employed. Also, Narutimate Hero 2 will feature a number of new characters, including ninja master Jiraiya and three young ninjas: Shikamaru, Chouji, and Ino.

Naruto: Narutimate Hero 2 is scheduled for release in the fall of 2004. No retail price has been announced.

So, if it's due out in AMERICA in about August 07, then how long will us Australian's have to wait?! I am sick of everything going through whole other countries, and so by the time the greater percent has finished the game and moved on, places like Australia just, and only just, recieve it! Argh, it sucks!
