Mini games in Naruto Shippuden: Gekitou Ninja Taisen EX

By Spencer . March 6, 2007 . 9:46am

Naruto Shippuden: Gekitou Ninja Taisen EX barely takes advantage of the Wii remote in the fighting mode, but the three mini games are a different story. When you start the game only the shuriken throwing game is available, but by playing that mini game you can unlock “Shadow Clone watching” and “Rasengan Training”. Past the break are videos of the three mini games and a little more information on how they utilize the Wii remote.



Shuriken Throwing


This is shooting game where you point the remote at targets and hit “A” to throw shuriken. Hitting Naruto earns 100 points and Kakashi is worth 300. Watch out for Sakura! If you hit her you lose points. Also you only get points when you knock down the cardboard cutouts, which takes a couple of hits to the body or a single hit to the face.



Shadow Clone watching


In this game Naruto makes a bunch of shadow clones and hides among the clones. You have to watch the real Naruto and target him with the analog stick. Once you spot the real Naruto you have to hit him with a kunai by lunging forward with the remote. If you hit the right Naruto the game continues, if you miss or run out of time Naruto throws a kunai at you. As the game continues Naruto makes more shadow clones and moves faster.



Rasengan Training


In rasengan training you spin the nunchuck and the remote just like in Naruto’s special move. The faster you spin the devices the more power Naruto has. At the end you lunge forward with the remote and let the charged Rasengan loose.

  • Sorry… but fighting games should not be about minigames… The reason why GNT EX is such a bad game is because 8ting spent too much time with the Wiimote instead of the actual fighting engine itself.

  • Jaxel, I know you’re a die hard fighting game fan, but I’m not trying to convince anyone that Naruto GNT EX is a good or bad game with these videos. These are merely around to show people what elements of the game are like, which they might not get to see anywhere else. Just out of curiosity have you played GNT EX?

    Make a 4 player video! Please! No one has made one and i think that mode is awesome. So please show 4 player. Everyone says that 4 player in EX lags a lot, but i want to see 4 player mode myself. Please!

    Jaxel, if you played the game, you’d know it was a great game. Maybe you only play it alone, or don’t have friends who are actually challenging to fight?
