No one knows exactly when it's going to come out. That's up to the developers; I say the longer the better because that means the better the game will be in the end.(although i want this game more than I want MGS4, which in my mind is crazy) It says......
Japan: sometime in 2008
U.S: sometime in late 2008/early 2009
so something like Late November/ or early February we'll be getting our hands on the best Naruto game to ever be relaesed.*
