Hiroshi Matsuyama Shares Passion for Naruto, Previews Impact

Posted on October 13, 2011

CyberConnect2 president Hiroshi Matsuyama recently sat down to share his passion for Naruto and showed off some of the storyboard for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Impact! The videos below span a total of 36 minutes; that’s a lot of passion and rightfully so! Creating Naruto games for a living is the ultimate dream come true for the Naruto fan! Just from watching the video, one new thing is confirmed – 6-Tail Naruto! About 20 seconds into the third video, you can see an image of Sage Naruto and 6-Tailed Fox. Our guess is that just like Storm 2, the 6-tails will be a transformation for Sage Naruto.

Naruto Impact or Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Impact is an action/fighter under development by CyberConnect 2 for the Sony PSP. It will feature over 50 characters (26 which are playable), co-op play, boss battles, 1-on-1 fighting, and 1-vs-100 action. Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Impact is scheduled for release by publisher Namco Bandai Games in in North America on October 18th, Japan on October 20th and Europe on October 21st.
