Didn’t see a thread about this yet, so I decided to make one.
Primarily an action-adventure game, Naruto: RoaN is being produced by Ubisoft Montreal, a big departure from the Bandai games which have been pretty mediocre for some time now.
Along with the aforementioned action-adventure game, there’s also going to be a full-blown fighting game as well (which is why I made the topic), which will feature online play, and a full on tournament which is named after the Chunin exam in the animated series.
Here’s some vids showing the fighting part of the game;
And IGN talking about the online tournament;
And some info about single player mode;
The game has been getting pretty positive feedback from major sites like Gamespot, IGN, and Gamespy, and MS even featured it in its keynote speech at TGS. It’ll be interesting to see if a western developer can pull off an anime license better than their eastern counterparts.
In any case, its coming out October 30th exclusively for the Xbox 360.
