If you didn’t think Naruto: Clash of the Ninja Revolution 2 for Nintendo Wii was cool before, check this out — there will be a fully animated opening sequence to the game! That’s like getting a whole new, bonus cartoon in addition to a sweet video game. The intro movie will be created by the TOMY Corporation, who designed the game, and Studio Pierrot, the producers of Cartoon Network’s amazingly popular Naruto animated series from VIZ Media. There will be a sneak peek showing of the intro at Penny Arcade Expo 2008, from August 29th to August 31st.
Created exclusively for its North American audience, the opening movie will showcase ninja skills of fan favorites like Naruto, Sasuke, and Kakashi, as well as a sneak peak at the game’s expanded character lineup, including the mysterious Anbu.
“This is the first time Studio Pierrot has created an original opening sequence featuring Naruto for the U.S. video game audience,” said Laura Yoshioka, director of consumer software at TOMY Corporation. “The movie is a great introduction to our exclusive storyline that expands upon the Anbu, a special covert operation group from the Hidden Leaf Village, and their role within the Naruto world.”
