Naruto Sure Loves His Rasengan On The Nintendo 3DS

By Ishaan . March 5, 2011 . 1:32pm


Tomy have another Naruto games in development in the form of Naruto Shippuden: Nin-rittai Emake! Saikyou Ninkai Kessen for the 3DS, which is due for release on March 31st. This week, they released TV commercials and a promotional video for it, which you can find above.


Developing by Eighting, Saikyou Ninkai Kessen is an original Naruto Shippuden story that centres around the five kages or “shadows.” In recent months, Atlus have been publishing Tomy’s Naruto games in the U.S.

    • Zero_Destiny

      Verily, man doesn’t always get that which he wants.
      Also epically phenomenally awesome isn’t proper English or even American for that matter. I thought the MASTER would know about that. Oh no wait you dismissed college English classes so you don’t know how to eliminate wordiness. My bad. :P

    • TheGoddamnedKamina

      I honestly don’t know if you’re trolling right now. (Me being a noob.)

      But this comment was hilarious.

        • Zero_Destiny

          The other day when you insulted Nintendo and greatly upset me. Before I was skeptical but now I’m really just had it with you. You troll I’ll point it out. That’s how I feel about you now. Enjoy :)

          • Insulted Nintendo? What do you mean? As the sites biggest Nintendo fan, I take offense at the charge of being called out for insulting them when I did not. The allegation, further, does not make sense as I even pledged my allegiance to them by making the claim that I am getting a Nintendo 3DS on day 1 and am committed to buying 3DS games, proof enough, of my zeal and zest for them. Verily, I think you truly do have me confused with someone else.

          • Trolling again I see!
            I tell you one thing Tomy need to lose the Naruto License. Their too lazy to every make a great game!

          • @TheWon and Only Its my mission to not be seen as a troll !!!

            Tomy does a great job with Naruto, what makes the games not great?

          • The games aren’t very good? Heck, I have a huge naruto fanboy friend, and even he hates the games. He hasn’t tried any of the PS3/360 games, but he dislikes the other ones.

        • TheGoddamnedKamina

          When i first started browsing this site; so like 6 months ago or something.

          what? I was not supposed to answer that?

          • Ren

            He is either a really masterful troll, a stupid american or a mix of both. Don’t worry, he is annoying sometimes but mostly innofensive, he’s like siliconera’s pet. And fell free to play with him, just remeber to not feed him too much, just don’t hope he’s going to make any kind of sense soon. Oh, and welcome to the site, Kaminachi.

          • TheGoddamnedKamina

            Hmm, i think i understand it now.


            And thanks :>

          • amagidyne

            It is futile to question the maddening, twisted logic of the hive-entity Tsunayoshi Sawada.


            Uh, yeah what Ren said.

          • Ren

            You made me remeber Kobold fusion line with that all caps gattai talk.

          • TheGoddamnedKamina

            Yes it is ;D

  • Oh God! The last 40 secs were the most epic of the video
    Rasengan vs Susasno’o ?!?!?
    Naruto launching Raikage in the air ?!?!?
    OMGWTF Now i need to get a 3DS >=D
    PD. This trailer looks like GNT Special…just saying…

    • I know know right!!! So epic that I have to see it again and again! This game makes me so glad to get a 3DS!!!

      • Lets just hope Atlus bring this to America (since Tomy USA dont own Naruto games again :( )
        I cant believe all the kages are bosses (except from Danzo i think) …
        Mizukage FTW!!! >3<

  • ToSeektheChosen

    I was excepting the graphics to look better.

    • DUDE! Screw graphics, its gameplay and content that counts most! Who wouldnt want to play as the most epic ninja ever using one of the most phenomenal moves in the series (Shadow Clone Jutsu and Rasengan?!)!

      • Zero_Destiny

        Just two days ago on the Zelda 3DS post you said this: “Screw gameplay, its visuals and presentation that counts most. Why would I want to play a game that looks considerably worst than other newer games? For example, why would I want to play Sonic the Hedgehog 2 over Sonic Unleashed/Colors, or Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit, over Need for Speed Hot Pursuit (2010), or for Nintendo’s sake, Super Mario Bros over Super Mario Galaxy 2.” I’m just saying is all.
        Link because I like to have evidence:

        • [The Hunter] Doomrider

          This is the part in which we would all say: “BUSTED”, but… Everyone’s used to it by now =P

          • Testsubject909

            Double standards aren’t unnatural, nor are contradicting oneself. It’s akin to deciding how we run our lives according to which moral standard. Do we go with the Utilitarian route and decide that what is moral is the results of our actions? Or do we go with the Deontological Ethics route and decide that what is moral is the way we go about bringing any given result?

            As humans, we never stick to just one, we constantly sway back and forth pending upon the situation. Perhaps we’re just seeing that phenomena.

            Or, rather, perhaps it’s about whether or not a game can provide more then enough of one content to compensate another and in such can warrant enough praise to remove any need for…

            You know what? I haven’t had my coffee yet. Believe it or not, I just woke up (it’s the weekend, I love sleeping in). I’ll be right back…

          • [The Hunter] Doomrider

            No sir, they are not! But the way they’re applied by Mr. TS here most certainly is =P (AND YOU KNOW IT)

            Oh, good morning, by the way xP

          • People should already start ignoring it and stop to follow his “game” lol

        • Screw consistency, it’s contradicting oneself and screwing things that counts most!

          • Testsubject909

            Believe it!

            Oh dear Buddha I feel dirty, damnit, gotta wash it off, gotta wash it off!

        • Perhaps you have me confused with someone else? We stated that we are of the belief that gameplay and content should be valued most, not visuals and presentations. Isnt that the view of most gamers anyway?

          • Zero_Destiny

            Who’s this we? There’s more than one of you? And no. There’s no one else out there like you. So it’s real easy to spot you don’t worry.

          • Why not, we are of the same belief? Right? So grouping should be allowed.

          • Ren

            Of course there’s more than one Trist. You forgot? Trist is everyone.

          • alundra311

            Are you saying that you didn’t post the comment Zero_Destiny linked to?

            [Edit] Sorry. I was looking for another comment by him. You can answer the question now. :D

      • Testsubject909

        Me. I’d rather play the future pirate king, put on his Armor Haki, utilize his Emperor’s Haki to cause his opponent to stutter soon after utilizing both the 2nd gear followed by the 3rd Gear and doing an Armored Gigant Rifle blow.

        That and, I’d honestly prefer playing as his dad if I had the choice of which supposed most subtle-less ninja to utilize.

        • Naruto has more creative jutsus than Luffy’s gears, so I think it would be agreed that its more enthralling to indulge in Naruto than the One Piece.

          • Testsubject909

            Well, between using magic which can be just about anything, and learning to master your own rubber body and learning how to do new tricks with said body.

            I’d imagine the latter would require far more imagination and creativity as well as thought into your own limits and capability to max out, as opposed to just going “I’m being beaten again! What new super special magical ability can I pull out of my ass via a training montage!?”

            Seriously, Naruto’s got too much of a leeway in how he can grow all the more powerful. That and, I just generally enjoy how the enemies in One Piece are beaten, especially those with Logia type powers, as they need to make equal use of strength, skill and thought.

            For example… How would you beat a man who is all lightning?

            Oh and, their ultimate powers also differs heavily.

            Naruto has a Deux Ex Nothing-can-beat-me Nine-tails powers that he’ll probably eventually fully unlock and master and be invincible, we get that.

            But Luffy? His ultimate power is the Emperor’s Haki. It’s a power of intimidation and domination. It’s a power of pure charisma and presence as he makes himself known to the world, making himself known as one who has the ability to rule the oceans.

            Just a tad bit different isn’t it?

          • Emperor’s Haki? The power to control animals seems rather useless in the One Piece universe. Naruto unleashing creative jutsu’s that tap into the elemental powers, is just extremely enthralling, and even nature power jutsus, and finally tapping into control the power of the nine tailed demon fox…surely more than what Luffy can do.

            The Logia are cool but too overpowers, in Naruto, fortunately the equivalent powers (kekkaigenkai) are not overpowered. The only thing that can defeat Logia is Haki, which is seemingly impervious to anything…so One Piece has power balance isshus.

          • Sir, thank you for reminding why I so love One Piece. xD

          • Testsubject909

            Tsuna… You’re not understand this are you?

            Logia types are so overpowered, perhaps. But at the same time, they’re so very vulnerable.

            Like I said, how do you defeat a man made of Electricity?

            How would you deal with Electricity in real life? Protect yourself against it or dissipate it? He IS that element, and thus, he can be ‘defeated’ much in the same way as that element can be defeated in real life.

            What about a man made of sand or fire? How do you defeat that? The stupidest and easiest way that even a little 5 year old could figure out since it’s so easy to think of. But the implementation is where it gets trickier.

            You don’t necessarily need to be a superhuman to defeat a Logia user. You can defeat them by being a witty or smart enough opponent.

            And again. I think you’re missing the whole point between my application of the contrast between the Emperor’s Haki and the Nine Tailed Demon Fox powers.

          • Tetsu, save your breath. You know that this is going nowhere

          • You put me in a mood to boot up my One Piece dvds and watch them instead of Bleach, why do you make it sound so awesome now, lol! (Speaking of which, new One Piece episode in just a few minutes, gotta go fast and watch it, Shanks and T. Law!)

          • Rasengan, Sexy Jutsu, Shadow Clone. That’s It.

            And Yes, I’ve been following the series and am completely up to date. That’s All he has.

            Edit: Wait, Forgot about his Frog powers and his Super Saiyafox mode. Even then, that’s only 5, admittedly Branchable, abilities.

          • alundra311

            Yep. That’s why Naruto (the character) bores me, same old jutsus by him. You also forgot the rasen-shuriken (only if you consider it a separate jutsu from the rasengan). I was really excited when he was training to combine his element (wind?) with the rasengan. But the result of that, the rasen-shuriken, wasn’t what I expected. I was actually expecting something more awesome than that.

            Oh well, as long as they give Kakashi more awesome fights, I’ll continue to look forward to Naruto.

        • Ren

          It scares me I could agree and understand everything you said.

        • ToSeektheChosen

          Yea! One Piece FTW! The one for 3DS looks better than the previous ones for Wii.

          • I hope we get a 3DS One Piece game released in CONUS, I would love to play as the stunning Roronoa Zoro!!!!

      • ToSeektheChosen

        That’s a little hypocritical Mr. Sawada.

  • GamerKT

    Who’s that filler girl? She looks like she belongs in Bleach. Also, this games has the longest title ever.

  • [The Hunter] Doomrider

    Ugh, look at those blocky fingers. No buy.

    • GET Out of this comment thread now!!!!! The main feature here is Naruto and Sasuke on the 3DS using phenomenally epically awesome attacks in what seems to be an awesome story using new characters to the games!!! There is so much action in the action packed game that noticing trivial fingers should be impossible. I know one thing, I will be too focused on having my mind blown at this awesome experience that I wont notice blocky fingers at all!

      • [The Hunter] Doomrider

        Ihihih. Oh, TS…

      • Ren

        Your ovaries must be tingling in antecipation. Can’t you ovulate about Naruto a little less? It’s really embarrasing to read that.

        Oh, I almost forgot… Hypocrite!

        • -_- i still remember what he said about THE zelda remake ._.

      • Natat

        Now now Tsuna, here, a cookie…

      • I…I think I threw up a little reading that
        That level of fanboyism CAN’T be healthy…

      • i thought you would agree with his comment
        you are always complaining about the blocky fingers!!
        your otaku blood cant agree this time

        • Please, I totally expected Tsuna to be like this.

  • Never played handheld Naruto games, but the narrator put a lot of power in it, so much that I’m forced to like it! xD
    But seriously doesn’t look as bad as people say. And the new character looks nice too. :P

  • I thought the shuriken rasengan was suppose to be bigger like in storm 2.I think I’m going to wait for naruto shp inpact XD

  • This looks like a generic beat-em-up to me. I’m not too impressed. I’ve played enough Naruto games to get over the fact that this is a Naruto game and hope it’s actually fun to play as well.

    • Dude, impossible, one can never play enough Naruto games!!! Who would turn down yet another guaranteed awesome experience?!

      • By awesome you mean shallow and boring, then yes.

      • alundra311

        OMG. You ARE right. “ONE” can never play enough Naruto games, literally (or should I say numerically? ;)). And that “ONE” is you.

  • And here i was thinking this would be good and different… Man, you could do better than this Naruto game franchise… -_-, he runs pretty slow as how it seems to be, looks just wrong, and it looks so, bad, i mean, its so obvious is always repeating the same moves… Sorry Tomy, but it just being 3D and i get to move the 3DS at some parts wont make me buy that -_-

  • Guest

    I just posted a shitload of links showing what haki is, but they didn’t appear… lol :(

  • Vino (Tim N)

    Does anyone want to know why I read these posts about Naruto games now? I’m sure you don’t, but I’ll tell you anyways. Its to see Tsuna express his undying love for these games. It just cracks me up, and makes me laugh after a long day of work. He really is Siliconera’s pet lol

    • Testsubject909

      …Suddenly, I had a flash of The Price is Right. With Bob Barker reminding us to neuter our pets…

      • OMG I love the Price is Right with Bahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhb Barker!!!! lololol, I miss him! Well Drew is good to and helpful for helping to remind us to help keep control of the pet population by having our pets spayed or neutered.

  • joesz

    I can say that the trailer was badass.

  • This game looks crap D:

  • karasuKumo

    Instead of making me want that game that trailer just made me excited to see those characters fight in the Anime ¬_¬ Also made me look forward to when CC2 cover this arc in a game lol. (Hopefully the third Storm game)

    The game itself has nothing original about it whatsoever. The 3D part and the fact that there are characters (and a red bear ???) that haven’t appeared in any other Naruto game are the only selling points.

  • Those look like PSP graphics.
    I was kind of expecting the 3DS to have better graphics than the PSP, but oh well.

  • These comments…

  • alundra311

    I think Siliconera needs to change the article’s title to “Tsuna sure loves his rasengan on the nintendo 3ds”. xD

  • The western title should be Super Naruto World: Rush Advance.

  • eilegz

    looks crappy seems a port of a DS game…
