Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Impact on PS Vita

Posted on December 1, 2011

The official Japanese PlayStation website has recently updated their page for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Impact. As you may already know, the game was created for the PSP. Well, now if you plan on getting the PS Vita, but haven’t purchased Impact (or even if you have) you will be able to enjoy the latest Naruto PSP adventure on it!

As far as we know the Vita will not be able to play the PSP discs (UMD) since it uses a technology similar to SD cards to host games called PS Vita cards. In other words, in order to play Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Impact on the PS Vita you will need to download it from the PlayStation Network. To clarify, Impact on PSP will be the same as on Vita. It’s just Vita is backwards compatible with downloadable PSP games.

The PlayStation Vita hits Japanese retailers on December 17, 2011. North America and Europe will receive the new handheld on February 22, 2012. Thus far Naruto Impact is only confirmed to be compatible with the Japanese PSVita, although we anticipate it will be for the North American and European versions as well.
