Naruto Storms the West in 2014

I don’t think this comes as a big shock but Namco Bandai enjoys publishing CyberConnect2’s Naruto games in North America and Europe. It is arguably the biggest anime and manga franchise worldwide, so they’re trying to milk it for all its worth considering it has become nearly an annualized franchise at this point. With the supposed conclusion to the manga on the horizon, what better time to release the last significant installment into the Ultimate Ninja series.

Namco Bandai has announced their plans today to bring the next installment, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution, to the West. The game features an incredible roster of playable characters (over 100) and some of the best anime-inspired visuals. The Naruto revolution will begin sometime in 2014 on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 (with hopefully a PC version coming down the line).
