New Naruto hitting PS2

Namco Bandai announce Naruto: Uzumaki Chronicles for PlayStation 2 is coming sometime this winter.

Just because a game based on the anime Naruto came out slightly more than a month ago, it doesn't mean it's too soon to announce another. Namco Bandai Games today announced the follow-up to June's Naruto: Ultimate Ninja, Naruto: Uzumaki Chronicles, will be released for the PlayStation 2 this winter.

The game will see the spiky-haired ninja embark on a series of missions to save the Hidden Leaf Village from bad guys and fulfill his quest to become a Hokage, a high-ranking ninja.

The action-adventure game will also feature familiar faces Kakashi, Sasuke, and Neji, as well as various minigames. Combat will combine both close-quarter melee moves as well as ranged attacks with shuriken and explosive cards.

Naruto: Uzumaki Chronicles has not yet been rated or priced.

Finally, a Naruto game that is not side-scrolled. I am looking forward to playing this game. I am not sure how good the Japanese version of this game is, but it seems like a solid game. Another question of mine is will it be an action adventure or Beat 'um Up? Oh well, I am a serious Naruto fan so it matter even if was a Puzzle game. Anyway, November 14 is the day that Naruto makes it's name even bigger.

i am so looking forward to there finally being a anime action game, i mean the last one i picked up was that dragonballz one and that blows but this really does look bad ass, i mean basically it is a fighting game but you get to go around freely and beat up a **** load of people and fight bosses. and i think there is a rpg element to it were you get to level. god i am excited but to all of the naruto fans out there i am pretty sure that the fillers are almost done i am hoping they end after 201 or maybe 202 were naruto fights the trap guy and then it is the students clash with the teachers was the title of the next three so maybe they start training and after the third one they get older. lastly i am just glade that naruto is hitting big in the us

this game should have waited a year or two,for the sake of the DUB watchers(me:i don't care)

Yeah, I looking forwrd to this one. Though I think they should've waited until all the others before this one (Narutimate Hero 2 & 3, and at least some of the Clash of Ninja) had come to the U.S.A.. And I don't know what you guys are saying about the voice actors. Give it a rest already, stop complaining, it's still a good show, so stop sulking like a buch of babies and enjoy the essence of Naruto. I don't find anything wrong with the voice actor that portrays Naruto. Still I think this is going to be a good game, I can't contain myself!

I can't wait for it guys, ever since I found out that it was released in Japan a little while ago I have been hoping that they will bring to the states. I do personally believe that the rpg will live up to a lot of its die hard Uzumaki Naruto fans (including myself). The only must have for the game is having Japanese voice overs to rid Naruto of his annoying voice and quotes when they brought the series to America.

japanese rules if it's a japanese game. original voices are way better... the mouth movements are a lot more accurate too, plus you loose all the jokes when english voices are used... O_o

I think this will get NH2 and 3 on our shores earlier than expected. A jump like this was entirely unexpected...

i played the jap version, great game, controls take time getting used to but a true Naruto game, great story. TONS OF FUN!! If namco/bandai want this to sell i suggest they keep origional jap voice cast in it!!!!

Can you say TOO EARLY!? I can. Too early, There. Ok, in all seriousness, it's far too early for this game to come out on our shores. This game's story goes up to (at the very least) episode 100. And unless CN has some big marathon of new episodes planned, they'll never get that far come this winter, and you all know what that means. Characters taken out, MAJOR other changes, the works. I hope you all enjoyed my forecast of doom :)

Those of you who say "the voice actor doesn't matter" or "of course it sounds better in a language you can't understand" don't get it. I can listen to an episode of Naruto (Not "NaROOdoh" like they say in the Eng-lang version) and pick up nearly all of it...it's pretty simple japanese for the most part. The voice actors ABSOLUTELY make the difference. We still haven't learned to do the over-the-top thing consistently when dubbing from Japanese (Excel Saga being a very good example of how to dub correctly). Something else that makes dubbing so difficult is the time constraint (meaning, sentences/phrases in japanese can take more or a lot less time than a similar English phrase). BrUnOdeFeNiX: English is obviously not your primary langauge. The translation you used doesn't make much sense other than the last line...but I understand your sentiment ^_^ And WHY OH WHY do people still post when they're not interested in a game?? Do you do that to start flame wars? How old are you? 10?

English Voices aren't annoying, you guys are just liberals. It's the script thats bad, not the voice. >_> The say believe it cuz the script not the voice actor.

i agree with haveing a choice to use english or japanese dub I like the japanese better.^_^

Of course the Japanese VA's are better, everything sounds better when you don't know what the hell they're saying. As far as dubbed voices go, Naruto doesn't have it half bad. The first thing I thought after watching the fan-subs was how closely the english VAs came to mimicking the voices of the Japanese actors. Some of them sound almost identical even if they have to change the wordings a little. You Naruto fans should just be happy that 4Kids didn't get their hands on it. I mean, at least the Anime hasn't been retitled "Nathen the Ninja" and when people die they don't go "to another dimension" and at least you get every episode without half the important ones being banned.

Please make it with the choice to choose original japanese voice, the english one is really annoying.

Neo_Strife100, are you insane?! you prefer "BELIEVE IT!"? The only character in the dubbed with a decent voice acter was zabuza, the rest do not know how to voice act. It just sounds so ridiculous.

I like the english voices way better. Yes I have seen them japanese version. I don't see what is so appealing about voices you can't understand. You might as well be listening to random yelling and the fact that 70% of characters are voiced by girls pretending to be guys.

Original is always better. Japanese seiyuu-tachi are the best voice actors.

I have to agree with x_vegeta. I would forgoe importing these games and buy them off the shelves of America if they would include the Japanese voices. Meimnobody, I have not once heard Naruto overuse dattebayo in any of the import games like he says believe it in the two games that have been released in the US. An as far as Japanese voice actors sucking, you're and idiot. Japanese voice work is far superior since they actually get to say their lines in front of each other and feed off of one another unlike American voice actors who go into a booth and speak only to a microphone.

I got an import copy of this a year ago and I gotta admit. It major sucks. Its barely playable. If you want a good Naruto game import Ninja Taisen 4, which kicks all kinds of ass.

eric_neo3
eric_neo3

meimnobody you mean 'Dattebayo'? just like Kenshin except they had the brains back then to keep it in the english version as it was in the jap version instead of a average 4kids censorship phrase. meimnobody why dont you actually go read up what 'Dattebayo' actually means instead of preaching what the dubbers want you to think it means.

eric_neo3

O.o a dub fanboyo. Sometimes I think nobody reads the comments. Most people who claim dubs are better than fansubs/Japanses version never ever saw how good the fansubs/Japanses version were and how much of the original feel the anime had. Best example I've found: Inuyasha -Japanese to Inu Waysha -English -O'GOD WHY!!! Is it a sin to say Ya Sha. ^ That is dubbing. I bet the next person to post here against fansubs or the japanese version and w00ting for the dubbed-english version will not have seen the original.

meimnobody
meimnobody

x_vegeta you apparently don't realize that Belive it is an english translation of the Naruto catchphrase which Naruto repeats every single sentence. The fansubbers had never translated his catchphrase. So much for the claims of how accurate they are when they don't sub his most annoying speech phrases that he repeats every single sentence.

meimnobody
meimnobody

Anyone who claims to hate the Naruto english voices doesn't understand a damn speck of spoken Japanese. The english voice actors were chosen by the Japanese for crying out loud since those english voice actors replicate the speaking styles of the Japanese characters. Seriously anyone that complains about english dubbing has no damn idea what good Japanese voice acting sounds like. Most Japanese anime voice work is horrible.
