Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution 2, announced in the July 2008 issue of Shonen Jump as a sequel to 2007's Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution, is set to be released in October 2008 for the US. It will also be the second Clash of Ninja game to be released on the Wii in English, as well as being another North American exclusive. The new characters confirmed thus far are Kiba Inuzuka (who was previously in Naruto: Clash of Ninja 2, but later was missing from the first Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution), Choji Akimichi, One-Tailed Naruto, Cursed Seal Level 2 Sasuke, Asuma Sarutobi, Kurenai Yuhi, (who is an original character created just for Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution 2), Awakened Hinata, and Anko Mitarashi. This game is also expected to carry the Naruto: Gekitou Ninja Taisen! 4 character roster, but still no word on this yet. The game will have at least 35 characters, a storyline exclusive to the United States with 24 missions, at least 15 multi-tier stages, a new mission mode with 300 missions, balancing changes for certain characters, newly recorded voice acting and a few minor tweaks. The game will be based from when Sasuke leaves the Leaf Village up to the current US anime. It has been confirmed that players will again be able to use the Gamecube controller and Classic controller in addition to the Wii Remote by itself, and the default Wii Remote with Nunchuk add-on just as in the original Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution. The developers have stated that they are considering team battles, but that they have decided against online play to focus on rebalancing the characters and perfecting the game's story mode. The game introduces for the North American audience the hand seal mechanism from Naruto Shippkden: Gekitou Ninja Taisen! EX 2, which characters can use to gain chakra or boost their attack power temporarily.
