Default PS2 Japanese Games on PS3?

Does anyone know if JP imported PS2 games work on a US PS3?

I want to get Naruto Shippuuden: Narutimate Accel 2 but I don't know if I'll have any problems playing it.

I don't know for certain but I am pretty sure that the PS3 is region locked

Yes, PS1 and PS2 games are region locked on the PS3.
(As well as DVD and BD movies.)
All PS3 games so far are region free but future titles can be region locked if the publisher want.

I dislike how the old BC games are region locked on the new consoles, very sad.

I still keep a US PS2 around just for the occasional US games that I want to play. I hate the modchip stuff.
