You see, its younger brother, Ultimate Ninja Storm, arrived on the PS3 some months back, and for most, it was a game that really propelled the series forward. Taking into account that UN4 was actually released in Japan before Ultimate Ninja Storm, it's a hard sell to convince gamers to go back to a series on a console that's no longer at the top of its game. While the delay is questionable, Namco Bandai and CyberConnect2 have finally seen to it that North American gamers get a shot to play through what could be the last Naruto adventure on the PS2. The question is, after Ultimate Ninja Storm, is there really a reason to go back?"
