Everyone’s Favorite Ninja Returns to the RPG Genre

The Nintendo DS gains a strong franchise title with today’s announcement of Naruto.

Los Angeles – May 14, 2008

TOMY Corporation and D3Publisher of America, Inc. (D3PA), publishers
of interactive entertainment software, today announced NARUTO™: Path
of the Ninja™ 2 for the Nintendo DS™. Everyone’s favorite orange-clad
ninja returns to the role-playing genre with Path of the Ninja 2,
featuring an all-new original storyline, a huge roster of playable
characters, an improved combat system and for the first time, exciting
Wi-Fi battles. Based on VIZ Media’s hit animated TV series NARUTO,
NARUTO: Path of the Ninja 2 is scheduled to hit stores in September

“There are huge numbers of NARUTO fans across North America, and we
wanted to give them more choices than ever before,” said Laura
Yoshioka, director of consumer software at TOMY Corporation. “This new
adventure will allow fans to play as their favorite character and
create their own dream ninja squad as they try to complete an entirely
original mission.”

NARUTO: Path of the Ninja 2 is set to give players a portable outlet
for their inner ninja this fall. A deep, original storyline will allow
players to access 30 major characters from the series, from standards
such as Naruto and Sakura to unlikely allies like the weapons-based
Tenten. The improved and intuitive battle system will make it easy for
even the newest fighters to get into the combat, using the DS Touch
Screen to unleash devastating melee and jutsu attacks on any opponent
foolish enough to get in their way. The new Squad Leader and Ninja Tag
systems provide even more squad-building options, while the Wi-Fi
multiplayer feature offers aspiring ninja the chance to take on
challengers from around the world.
