_Broken Bond will pick up where Rise of Ninja left off and will contain the Return of Itachi and Sasuke Retrieval story arcs. There will be 25 playable characters, a new team system, voice acting and music from the original Naruto anime.
Gameplay will be similar to the first game with some minor tweaks. During the story/RPG mode players will take up to three ninja at a time to follow them around and perform certain tasks. Specific characters now have powers that contribute to these tasks, such as Neji's Byakugan to find enemy traps or Naruto's Shadow Clones to get across a small valley. In addition, during a battle in story mode, in the middle of a battle, your character can be switched out with someone else from the team. Also, the landscape in story mode will allow players to experience a more authentic gameplay experience by making the levels more interactive._
IGN's First Look
Here's hoping this one is less abridged,less glitchy, & less crappy than the first.
