WoW players: we have all your patch 2.4 news!

Mystery 360 RPG = Naruto?

Using the ancient and mysterious powers of "deduction," loyal reader (and Fanboy blogeague) Ludwig has managed to piece together a pretty convincing guess as to the identity of the mystery RPG coming to 360. The leaked Ubisoft release schedule included a Naruto game; Naruto is a popular Japanese anime/manga series that even spawned several video games, none few of which made it outside Japan; could the mystery RPG be Naruto?

While the previous Naruto games have all been fighting games, the series is ripe for RPG-ification (just check out that convoluted storyline, a staple of all JRPGs!). And we all know better than to trust Ubisoft's obligatory boilerplate denial. What says you, Xbox 360 ownin' JRPG fans?

[Thanks, Ludwig]

I don't think it's Naruto for the simple reason that it's not a proven property that will easily sell 500.000 copies. I don't think the Naruto games were ever that popular in Japan, let alone in the US and Europe.

I was going to say the same thing about the US release.

and that there IS a Jap RPG naruto game, i have all the naruto games, most are fighting, but there is one that is an RPG for the PS2.

if there was a 360 naruto game then i really do hope that there will be a bootdisk or something for tr 360 by then so i can actualy play it on my UK 360 lol
