A Double Dose Of DS Naruto Shippuden Games

This article is over 15 years old and may contain outdated information

The Naruto Shippuden license is fair game in North America and publishers are quickly utilizing it. Namco Bandai already announced Ultimate Ninja 4: Naruto Shippuden originally through manga mag Shonen Jump. Now, it’s Tomy’s turn to do the same thing.

A scan sent in by Ryne11 (thanks!!) casually announces Naruto Shippuden Ninja Council 4: Rise of the Akatsuki which is a localized version of Naruto Shippuden: Saikyou Ninja Daikesshuu 5. Japan got the 2D brawler about a year and half ago. We’ll get to throw kunai at bats and rescue Gaara this spring. Confused about the numbers? We missed out on Naruto: Saikyou Ninja Daikesshuu 3. Europe, however, got a localized version of it.


image Japan gets a new Naruto Shippuden game from Tomy in the spring too. Naruto Shippuden: Shinobi Retsuden III, a sequel to the pseudo 3D fighter Naruto: Ninja Destiny, will arrive in stores on April 30. Highlights include Hidan’s appearance, Naruto’s wind element technique, and giant beast battles. Man vs. monster fights sound neat, but I wouldn’t expect them to deviate too much from what we’ve seen before.
