Namco Bandai have now released Naruto Powerful Shippuden on the Nintendo 3DS.


NARUTO Powerful Shippuden is based off the popular anime series NARUTO SPIN-OFF: ROCK LEE & HIS NINJA PALS and presents a side-scrolling action fighting game starring Rock Lee and Naruto Uzumaki in two separate adventures. Developed by Inti Creates with production support from CyberConnect 2 Co., Ltd., NARUTO Powerful Shippuden possesses a charmingly unique presentation of the characters that pumps boundless amounts of youthful energy into the ninja combat that is sure to captivate audiences of all ages.


Story mode places players into missions through which they can experience scenarios taken straight from the original animation storylines as well as comedic parodies. Like the TV anime series, each mission is one complete story and doesn’t follow a specific order so that casual and young gamers will be able to enjoy pick-up-and-play gameplay that is intuitive and stylish.


However, don’t be fooled by the adorable appearances of the super-deformed ninjas! Enemies such as Orochimaru and other sinister characters standing in your way will be quick, wily and powerful, which will require players to pull out all the ninja stops. Players will need to make efficient use of their Chakra to attack and defend without depleting their Chakra levels and also utilize the touch-screen functionality to increase their strength. Lee and Naruto’s ninja pals, such as Guy, Sakura, Neji and more will also be itching to join the action as summoned support characters to aid in the heat of battle.
