PS: Does anyone know why they keep giving these Naruto games longer and longer names? I’d be happy with “Naruto Revolution”. What’s next…
“Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution: Full Burst – Game of the Year Edition / Collectors Box Set”?
There’s no teaser trailer yet, but that will no doubt arrive with the upcoming Western release announcement from Namco Bandai Games.
In the meantime, here’s the preview video for Thursday’s newest Naruto Shippuden episode #340.
