Naruto: Untitled X-Box 360 Project

Skip Navigation Links

On April 6th, 2006, Ubisoft announced that they have signed a licensing agreement with TV TOKYO Corporation and SHUEISHA Inc., to develop games based on the Naruto anime series for the Microsoft Xbox 360 console. The new titles will be available in North and South America and European territories in 2007. No further information has been released, but we do have the two press releases in which this information came from: Available here.

On September 21st, 2006, a 2GB RAR file was discovered on Ubisoft's FTP server. The file contained information, video, artwork, and screenshots from their upcoming titles (including the untitled Naruto project). Several hours after it's discovery, Ubisoft locked down their FTP server, and released the following statement:

"We are clearly displeased that confidential information from Ubisoft has been distributed on the internet. The publication of this type of information can only be harmful to the game development process and we will take all steps necessary to prevent this from happening in the future. We are still investigating the events that lead to this information leak and at this time have no further comment."

Around this time, the leaked images began to dissapear from the internet. It seems very possible this was a result of Ubisoft. There were a large number of websites discussing them, but they never actually hosted anything, just linked to them. In as little as 24 hours nearly all websites hosting the files had removed them (sites like Imageshack, Gamespy, and Youtube accounted for 99% of the actual hosting -- all of which have a "request removal" system, that could be used to help control this situation).
