No the anime is just a few episodes away...the manga is always far away from everything...In this game it just has some untold stories(eg Itachi's story, Zabuza's etc) but not the main storyline...
@LeahMyles: The anime is already way past what this game is based upon. And the manga is even further.
While I found ninja storm 2 entertaining I find myself hoping or wishing (not certain which word to use here) that the mechanics of the single players are/were different in this title then in the last. I want to walk into a room for a boss fight and stay in that room without a loading screen taking me to a stage fight like mortal kombat. The game play in single player should be more then walking around until you get to another VS format fight.
Naruto is so epic!! I haven't watched the show in a while... wonder if they caught up with the last ninja storm game yet. If they actually gave you animated episodes that would be the best extra ever!!!
Can't wait for the game :) even if it's going to be broken, still will enjoy the single player ! But I do agree with you freeholdz and vengefulwilberg
