naruto_shinboirumble_screens_15Atlus’ third Naruto Shippuden game isn’t too far behind Naruto Shippuden: Naruto vs. Sasuke or Naruto Shippuden: Dragon Blade Chronicles. Both of those come out on November 16.


Naruto Shippuden: Shinobi Rumble is slated for February 8, 2011. Unless Atlus has some secret announcement for January, this four player fighting game with Naruto and friends will be their first title next year.


As you can see from the trailer, this handheld Naruto game is all fighting. Think Naruto Shippuden: Ninja Council 4 with Shippuden characters.

  • I hate to be overly enthused but….YUS!!!! Atlus is quickly becoming my third favorite company behind (Namco Bandai, NISA, and SONY)

    This DS game looks awesomely hot. It even has the awesome Naruto, Suigetsu, Sasuke, Sakura, and Konan!!!! This will no doubt be, thus far, the best DS game of next year!!!!!! And look at the vivid colors in the screens! Awesome!

    Now if someone would make a Katekyo Hitman Reborn! game (so would play as Tsuna!!! and Gokudera)

    • skyblaze

      There’re a ton of them: Vongola Carnival and the Flame Rumble series on DS, Dream Hyper Battle and Kindan no Yami no Delta for PS2 and Wii, Battle Arena 1 and 2 for PSP… the list goes on. Naturally they’re all Japanese and need to be localized… odds of which are unfortunately low seeing that the anime itself hasn’t been brought over to the U.S. I’m fine just reading the manga and watching subs, though. Tsuna’s one of my favorite heroes… my new wallet has him on it =D

    • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

      There are a bunch of KHR games out…just not out anywhere other than Nippon, sadly

  • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

    I wish they would bring over Jump Super/Ultimate Stars, or even better, make a whole new one

    • I would so buy it if it were for the powerful consoles…though I guess that game, if it were to so come to light, would permanently be stuck in the land of difficult licensing negotiations…

  • Not bad and same as others but… just 15 chars?

    • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

      No, 16 chars!

      • OMG xD that’s a huuuuge difference.

        I cant belive there are only 16 chars and karin is one of them… seriously, the most “WE DIDNT EVEN KNEW sHE COULD FIGHT” character in the world

        • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

          hahaha I completely agree. Take her out and put it Madara. This game doesn’t even go through the pain arc. So far behind…

  • SouskeSagara

    Why are they making the animation like Dragon Ball… thats not really original…and a little more lame

    • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

      What do you mean “like Dragon Ball”?

      • SouskeSagara

        you ever play any dragon ball games on nintendo or PSP? the animation is the same character and fighting wise… only difference is dragonball you can turn super saiyan this…… background animation? I donno i’m not interested in Naruto

        • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

          I have played those games and I don’t think they’re the same. Well, they’re similar in that both games have people kicking and punching

          • SouskeSagara

            Yes… that is what i’m talking about not original they should continue making their naruto games the same -.-

          • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

            So characters in Naruto games shouldn’t punch or kick at all because it’s too much like Dragon Ball?

          • SouskeSagara

            Lol your not getting my point…. My point is why would they downgrade naruto when naruto games already suck

          • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

            You’re right, I’m not getting your point. How are they downgrading? The art style is consistent with the series and allows them to do things gameplay wise that they couldn’t do if it was graphically similar to Naruto Retsuden. And if you think Naruto game suck, the only reason I can think of for you to click on this article is to troll….

          • SouskeSagara

            You aren’t getting my point because your addicted to old school animation…. you might as well have pokemon pixels… you would probably like that better. No you probably would like Black and White pixels because i’m pretty sure that is your style… don’t even need to argue about this lmfao your just pathetic

          • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

            Yay for fallacious conclusions!

          • SouskeSagara

            yay for sarcasm…

  • The game isn’t going to sell. It’s like a month before the 3DS is released.

    • I have large doubts that the Naruto fanbase will be rushing to get the 3DS day 1…even then, the 3DS is backwards compatible with the DS games so, people could pick it up along with their 3DS and some other launch title game.

      I think they chose February so they can get it released before the 3DS and the smattering of games coming out with that device in March, though.

  • karasuKumo

    It looks better in the screens, some of the sprites aren’t that great in movement. I don’t know why people would buy this apart from the reason of not owning a PSP, or just buying it on a whim. Just get Ultimate Ninja Heroes 3. It roughly goes up to the same point in the story and it has more characters, it also has 4 player multiplayer and it’s just better overall.

    • But this one is awesome for the DS, I guess it would be my 12th Naruto game…
