Next month Tomy is releasing Naruto: Shinobi Retsuden as Naruto: Ninja Destiny on the Nintendo DS. You may remember the game as the 3D Naruto fighter that appeared in Japan well over a year ago. I loathed the Japanese release, but North America isn’t going to get the same experience. Naruto: Ninja Destiny has an improved frame rate and a total of sixteen characters. I recall thirteen characters in the original Japanese release, if you count one tailed Naruto and Cursed Seal Sasuke as separate characters, which means three of them are brand new. It sounds like the game sticks to the same Clash of Ninja-lite / touch screen item system, though.
