Last week during the Tokyo Game Show 2012 during the Namco-Bandai panel, CyberConnect2 developers revealed the first official trailer for the upcoming new Naruto game.
It is slated for release in Spring 2013 for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Sony’s PlayStation 3. The game will start with a flashback from the beginning of the Nine-Tails’ Attack on Konoha and then start with the Five Kage Summit Arc all the way to an unknown point in the Shinobi World War Arc.
Namco Bandai stated that the game will feature a ‘more profound’ story and a combat system that is aimed to further evolution’. Boss battles will also make their return to the game. It is also confirmed that players can go into awakening mode from the start of a battle. The game will also have the return of missions in Konoha during story mode.
