Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 has shipped 1.2 million units worldwide, according to Namco Bandai via Siliconera. Shipment figures do not necessarily equate to sales, of course, but are a good indication of retailer expectations.

I don’t know much about Naruto byt CyberConnect2 certainly make lovely-looking games.

In a series of tweets translated by Gematsu, producer Yusuke Tomizawa said the Monster Hunter-like title currently supports ad-hoc and PS3 ad-hoc party, “but there are plans to talk about online specifications sometime in the future”. God Eater 2 is the sequel to PSP RPG Gods Eater Burst; it’s due in Japan on PSP and Vita later this year. The original supported only ad-hoc multiplayer modes.
