If you remember my post a few days ago asking what was in the "Namco Classic Fighter Collection" that was listed for the Playstation 2
, I may have an answer for you. Spencer over at Siliconera
might have very well found out the contents of that collection as well as some info on a Naruto based bundle as well. It turns out that both bundles will be about $30 and will most likely be along the lines of the Devil May Cry and Need For Speed bundles which contain 3 regular games in a cardboard sleeve. The lineup for both PS2 bundles are(most likely) as follows.
NAMCO CLASSIC FIGHTER COLLECTION
1. Tekken Tag Tournament
2. Tekken 4
3. Soul Calibur II
NARUTO ULTIMATE COLLECTION
1. Naruto: Ultimate Ninja
2. Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 2
3. Naruto: Uzumaki Chronicles
I have everything in the Fighter Collection and the only thing off about it is that Namco put in Tekken 4
and not Tekken 5
. Maybe it has something to do with Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection being available on PSN. Most people seem to believe that 4 was the weakest of the series and of the ones I've played, I think it was. Both Tekken Tag
and Soul Calibur II
are fantastic games so at least it's not a total loss.
The Naruto games seem to have all scored pretty well. Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 1
scored around the mid sevens and Uzumaki Chronicles
was in the sixes, so overall the bundle should be a pretty good deal. I just started watching Naruto on Cartoon Network's Toonami Jetstream
website. They even have the first movie up to watch for free. I'm pretty sure I'll be picking up the Naruto bundle.
