1UP Previews Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Heroes 2

1UP writes: "Say what you will about the glut of Naruto games invading our shores -- it's the new Dragon Ball Z for that reason alone -- but at least Namco Bandai has seen fit to shake up the formula from time to time. Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Heroes 2 -- The Phantom Fortress takes last year's 3-on-3, King of Fighters-inspired PSP brawler and adds role-playing elements, and while the resulting mix doesn't exactly play like last year's Ultimate Ninja Heroes, it does play a little like your dad's primitive PC dungeon crawler.

The game's new story-based Mugenjo mode sees a foreboding castle -- conveniently containing an even 100 floors, perfect for an Etrian Odyssey-style trek -- appear in Naruto's hometown of Hidden Leaf Village, and this menacing medieval edifice is predictably a harbinger of doom: Every other town it's appeared in has been wiped off the map. Also predictably, the headstrong ninja Naruto believes he can storm the castle and save the day himself".

The story is too old to be commented.
