With the Nintendo 3DS already available in Japan, Naruto fans haven’t had any games from the ninja anime series to play on the device. That problem will be rectified this month when Takara Tomy releases Naruto Shippuden Nin-rittai Emake Saikyou Ninkai Kessen.
Back in January, it was revealed that Naruto Shippuden 3DS will feature appearances from all five Kages of the ninja world and that it will also include an original story. Details of the 3D side-scrolling action that players will experience in the game has been detailed a little but now players can see for themselves just how jam-packed with action this game looks – by watching the new trailer from Tomy.
Check out the trailer yourself below:
What sticks out in this new trailer are the impressive and fast moving visuals that this new powerful handheld provides. Naruto is seen using his Shadow Clones for a good number of his attacks, but what fans may be interested in the most is to see Sasuke using the feared Susano’o technique that comes from his Mangekyou Sharingan eyes.
Running through the levels, collecting scrolls, and switching between the back and front part of the game looks very fluid. What was shown for the first time in this trailer is the use of the gyroscope in the 3DS by tilting the device to help out the player’s character in battle. Gamers can also call in support characters – that can be selected prior to starting a new level – and are summoned to set up players’ attacks.
It is safe to say that this won’t be the last game Naruto fans see on the new Nintendo console, but if this game is any indication, players should be in for a great experience.
Naruto Shippuden Nin-rittai Emake Saikyou Ninkai Kessen is scheduled to be released in Japan on March 31, 2011 for the Nintendo 3DS.
