NARUTO Clash Of Ninja Revolution 2 European Version launches on Wii & Naruto Ninja Destiny 2 European Version slashes its way on to Nintendo DS
22nd January 2009 – It’s the moment beat ‘em up fans have been waiting for as Nintendo injects a good dose of Ninja into 2009, with NARUTO Clash of Ninja Revolution 2 European Version set to transform the Wii fighting experience across Europe on 13th February 2009 and Naruto Ninja Destiny 2 European Version launching on Nintendo DS across Europe on 6th March 2009.
NARUTO Clash of Ninja Revolution 2 European Version – Based on the popular Shonen Jump’s Naruto manga series and designed exclusively for Wii, the game boasts sumptuous cell-shaded 3D visuals and a unique storyline which branches off from the series and features 15 entirely new characters. Fans of the original manga series will find this a truly immersive experience – all characters and ninja techniques are loyally and accurately represented. The innovative combat system, for example, makes full use of the Wii’s motion control capability, enabling players to execute ninja techniques with their hands, as in the original manga series. Linking a series of hand signs can trigger various effects, such as restoring Chakra or temporarily raising your character’s strength.
The story begins with a new group of enemies threatening to destroy the leaf village by making everyone turn against each other using a hallucination technique called genjutsu, which is known to make a friend appear as a foe. To make matters worse, the enemy has set up barriers around the village so that the inhabitants cannot escape the technique. Players control Naruto and his ninja companions in order to defend the village and seek out the enemy mastermind.
Multiplayer action is perfectly catered for, with up to four players able to fight simultaneously on one console, but a new Mission Mode also provides extended gameplay for single players, seeing you carry out a number of different, ranked missions. Each character has 10 missions and each time a mission is completed, you are graded on performance. With seven ranks available, you will find there are hours of challenging fun ahead as you aim to rise from Apprentice to the highest rank of Hokage.
The detailed and unique storyline, a full training mode and dozens of unlockables waiting to be discovered make this a ninja extravaganza that will be difficult to put down!
Naruto Ninja Destiny 2 European Version – Nintendo’s second dose of ninja medicine is administered via the Nintendo DS, meaning that huge finishing attack you are dying to unleash is always within arm’s reach! Using the system from the Japanese version of "Naruto Shinobi Retsuden II", and filled with new characters, original scenarios, and other features exclusive to this original European title, the game looks fantastic and gives you the chance to play a story mode for the first time in a 3D Naruto game on the DS.story that's never been told before in the anime series.
A total of 25 characters are playable, including characters from Ninja Destiny and Shinobi Retsuden II as well as all new characters, and, if you are good enough, you will get the chance to play as all the Hokages (First to Fifth) – a first for the Nintendo DS or Wii. The authenticity of the game is increased by the use of the original cast of the Naruto series to provide the Japanese voiceovers used for characters in battles!
The game boasts a complete Leaf Village, modelled in full 3D on the Nintendo DS. Playing as Naruto, you can explore the entire map and collect items while playing through the completely original story, which takes place right after the battle between Naruto and Sasuke at the Final Valley – and leads, inevitably, to further battles!
Clearing the single player Story Mode does not, however, signal the end of the game. After clearing it once, the number of playable characters in Free Battle Mode and Wireless Battle Mode will increase, and you will also unlock the single-player Quest Mode. Quest Mode sees you challenge your way through automatically generated maps, gaining power ups and becoming stronger as you progress. In single-player Free Battle Mode, you can pit your fighting powers against the computer or take on opponents one after another in a survival-type format.
And using the Nintendo DS Wireless Communication, you can take on a friend (or enemy!) in Wireless Battle Mode, unleashing the best moves you’ve learned from your ninja trainers!
So start dusting down those shurikens and practising those finishing moves! Published by TOMY and distributed by Nintendo – the ninja revolution comes to Nintendo across Europe when NARUTO Clash of Ninja Revolution 2 European Version and Naruto Ninja Destiny 2 European version launch on Wii and Nintendo DS on 13th February and 6th March respectively.
