Set over two years after Naruto leaves the seclusion of the Hidden Leaf Village, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja 4 follows the storyline of his return to the village, where a new threat – the Akatsuki – have appeared in the shadows. Over 52 players make up a jam-packed roster in the one-on-one beat-em-up, which will also include a more narrative-driven ‘Master Mode’ that unlocks the story behind Naruto’s return.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja 4 has been developed by CyberConnect2, and first launched in Japan back in April 2007. A fifth instalment was released in the Far East back in December 2008, so with some luck we may receive that sometime during Christmas 2010.
The trainee ninja has so far made a single appearance on PlayStation 3 in Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm, which was also developed by CyberConnect2.
Set two and a half years after Naruto left the Hidden Leaf Village to undergo a strict training regiment with his mentor Jiraiya, NARUTO SHIPPUDEN : Ultimate Ninja 4 lets players experience this exciting new storyline for the first time.
Returning to help save his rival Sasuke from the evil Orochimaru, Naruto is reunited with all his old friends, only to find that a mysterious organization known as Akatsuki now poses a more ominous threat to the Village.
