rockleeThe “SD” in Naruto SD Powerful Shippuden stands for “super deformed” an art style used for cutesy characters. Instead of making another fighting game, Namco Bandai and Inti Creates created a side-scrolling beat ’em up for the Nintendo 3DS.


Rock Lee and Naruto are playable characters in Naruto SD Powerful Shippuden. New scans show Yamato, Sai, and Sakura acting as support characters for Naruto’s chapter. Neji is a support character for Rock Lee’s chapter. Players can call allies by tapping on them using the touch screen.


Kakashi and Orochimaru (with a huge sword protruding from his mouth) are shown as bosses in Naruto SD Powerful Shippuden.

    Alright, I’ll out myself. Why the hell is Yamato a support character? His job is to appear in the background of every episode and yet have no lines!

  • Sardorim

    Hey now, they needed his DNA for the big war! At least he isn’t like Anko who got beat up and hasn’t woken up since than.

    If well executed this tittle could turn out to be awesome. I’ll keep my eye on it.

    Keeping my eye on this one solely because Inti Creates are the ones developing it. They’ve proven time and time again that they know how to do 2D platformers!

    Lets see, if
    Megaman Zero 1-4
    Megaman ZX and ZX Advent
    Megaman 9 and 10

    arent enough to prove that these guys know their 2D platformers, I dunno what is!

    While I like Naruto fair enough Inti Creates is the only reason I’m excited for this game!  Now for the surefire localization news (I mean it is Naruto, of course its getting localized, right? RIGHT?

    Only via Super-Deformed artwork where “Giant” chars and normal-sized human chars are about the same height.

    I’d like to see this happen in this game.
