CyberConnect2 Have Released The Debut Trailer For Naruto Narutimate Impact

CyberConnect2 have released the debut trailer for Naruto Narutimate Impact, an upcoming PSP game. the trailer is in Japanese and uses in-game action and some cutscenes to show some of the game. from the trailer, it looks like some of the game will be spent playing through some of the Naruto Storyline. Pain and Bee are shown as is Sage Naruto. the trailer probably didn't show more advance story stuff as the Anime is not far into the Post Pain story line.

I personally enjoy Naruto and this looks kinda fun, and it looks graphically good for a PSP game. its currently unknown if this game is coming out in the West, but i'll ask Namco Bandai if they know anything.

Key Features
· The Old World Burns -Embark on a contentious quest for retribution spanning five chapters and 40 missions that promise to bring fire, death, and destruction to the great cities of medieval Europe.
· A Templar Cursed—Transform the world around you into a flaming red vision of Hell, increasing your strength and your ability to perceive hidden things, all at the expense of your humanity.
· Brotherhood of Steel—Split-screen or online, recruit a friend to assume control of the thief, Esteban, to join in the excitement of shared adventure.
· Intense, visceral 3rd-person action—Easy to grasp yet deep in its execution, a weapon-based combat engine features over 90 combos, 130+ weapons, and a timing-based counter system.
