Atlus USA has today announced that they have reached agreement of distribution with Tomy Corp to release Naruto Shippuden: Dragon Blade Chronicles for Wii on November 16th. The latest chapter in the Naruto Shippuden series of games, based on the popular anime series, sees fans getting the chance to take control of both Naruto and Sasuke as they go their own ways to seek out the mysteries and power behind Genryu, the mighty Elemental Dragons, in an all-new epic adventure.
