It's about time Namco Bandai worked a Tekken character into a Naruto game, as the company reveals Tekken 6's Lars Alexandersson as an unlockable character in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2.

An interesting addition to the game, I think. I was never under the impression that Naruto suffered from a lack of playable characters, but if you're going to add more, might as well be from Tekken.

Though, Lars? Could we get a little more obscure? Why not a Yoshimitsu, or one of the Mishima clan?

Perhaps Lars is just a start. Either way, we'll know for sure ones Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 ships for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this September.
