Naruto: Uzumaki Chronicles 2 for PS2Naruto: Uzumaki Chronicles 2 was released in the U.S. last Tuesday. Time for a closer look at the PS2 game.

Called Naruto: Konoha Spirits in Japan it is the follow-up to the first Bandai Namco PS2 hit and is an action-RPG like it’s predecessor with an all-new storyline that has Naruto defending the Hidden Leaf Village and surrounding villages from the evil force that was thought to have been destroyed years ago. The ancient organization known as the Shirogane Clan was known for using soulless creatures known as puppet walkers to accomplish their goals, manipulating them for malevolent purposes, and they turn out to be alive and in search of orbs to resurrect a mechanical terror. It’s now up to Naruto and all of the Hidden Leaf Genin to join forces with those of the Hidden Sand Village to stop this menace. Everyone from Sakura and Kakashi to Shikamaru and Rock Lee will make an appearance as well.

  • In this action RPG you travel across a map and complete missions to gain experience points in order to gain new abilities or increase your character’s stats, except it’s not mission based like the first one, as they are contained in a separate mode. The game features no less than 10 playable characters as well as 2-player co-op action.

    The game develops similar to episodes from the popular anime, with a prologue and numerous chapters telling the primary story of what Naruto and his friends do to beat back the puppet walkers. As players complete chapters and specific battles tied into the main plot of the game, they unlock everything from characters to game modes; These modes receive new content as you progress for a rather large exploration element. You’ll unlock Survival mode and mission modes simply for beating the first few chapters, each of which has different ranked objectives. As you take on side quests you unlock new challenges, which you can take on to earn items, orbs and money.

    Your items can be sold back at the shop to purchase new skill chips, which enhances your abilities. Naruto starts out with only his Rasengan and Shadow Clone Jutsu but can eventually learn his Sexy Jutsu, True Rasenan and Uzumaki Barrage attacks by expanding the skill plate and equipping these abilities on this grid. Similarly, money can be used to purchase items that restore your health or your chakra, which you use to trigger your skills. Orbs, on the other hand, boost your health and chakra in battle, along with providing your characters with virtue points. Virtue points are saved up in the game and are redeemed at the end of missions to level up individual stats like your attack power or jutsu defense. Since the amount of virtue points goes up as you purchase each new stat increase, you’ll find yourself constantly taking on missions to strengthen your characters. During side-missions, players can switch between one or two other teammates that are along with them at will, taking advantage of each character’s skills.
