CyberConnect2

CyberConnect2 first started the Little Tail Bronx series with Tail Concerto on the PlayStation back in 1998. Then in 2010, Solatorobo: Red the Hunter came to DS. Fuga on the Battlefield will see the franchise return once again next summer.

Notice a pattern here? There’s about a decade long wait in between titles. In an interview with Anime News Network, CyberConnect2 CEO Hiroshi Matsuyama explained why it takes so long for new games to be released, stating:

CyberConnect2 confirmed today that its slate of upcoming games – Fugue on the Battlefield, Tokyo Ogre Gate, and Cecile – will launch worldwide in 2019. These games are part of a “Trilogy of Vengeance” set, self-published by the studio.

Fugue on the Battlefield, a Little Tail Bronx 20th anniversary game, will arrive first next summer. Tokyo Ogre Gate will be next up three months later, followed by Cecile three months after that.

Several months ago, CyberConnect 2 announced a trio of titles. One of these was Fugue on the Battlefield, a Little Tail Bronx 20th anniversary title.

Fugue on the Battlefield has resurfaced in Famitsu with a Summer 2019 release window. CyberConnect2 president and CEO Hiroshi Matsuyama also provides the following development update:

Bandai Namco and CyberConnect2 are releasing Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy on Switch this week. Footage from the third game, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst, can be found below.

If you missed one of our recent file size roundups, you may not have heard about an interesting approach Bandai Namco is taking with Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy on Switch. You’ll be able to purchase the collection itself, but also the individual games.

This could be handy if you played through one of the Naruto titles on other platforms previously and are only interested in certain ones. That means, for example, you’ll be able to purchase Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 on its own. With listings on the European eShop, we can confirm Bandai Namco will be making the trilogy and standalone titles available in Japan and in the west.

The final file size for the different games are as follows:

Inti Creates posted another developer gameplay video for Gal*Gun 2. This time, CyberConnect2 president Hiroshi Matsuyama was brought in to try out the game. You can find that video below, along with a live stream recording from this week with even more footage.

Recently announced for Japan, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy for Switch will be getting a western release as well. We’re waiting to hear about North America (presumably we’ll have news later today), but the European launch is also confirmed for April 26. It will be digital-only, unlike Japan.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy is a compilation of the first three Ultimate Ninja Storm titles that lets players relive the story of Naruto Uzumaki from his days at the Ninja Academy to the 4th Great Ninja War. The package will include many of the DLC released for the original games such as Saskuke’s kimono costume, and allows fans to choose between heroes and villains like Naruto Uzumaki, Saskuke Uchiha, Pain or Obito Uchiha to lead into battle.

We have an English trailer for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy below.
