Tomy set April 22 as the release date for Naruto Shippuden: Full Throttle Ninjutsu! Chakrush. Visually, the sprites give it a Jump Ultimate Stars feel, but the battle system is quite different.
Tomy calls Naruto Shippuden: Full Throttle Ninjutsu! Chakrush a “high speed ninja battle action game” and created a rock-paper-scissors style fighting system. Guarding blocks attacks. Attacks shatter a guard crash. And guard crash slams a defending character. Every character also has ouigis and a chakrush, a hyper combo that the game is named after.
Playable characters include: Naruto, Sai, Sakura, Kakashi, Jiraiya (in Toad Sage form), Sasuke, Shikimaru, Deidara, Itachi, and Pain. Battle them in fights with the computer or up to three friends via local Wi-Fi.
