This holiday is going to be silly with new releases and along with them are preorder bonuses. Naruto Shippuden: Dragon Blade Chronicles is no exception including some cool collectible trinkets at both GameStop and Amazon.
I'll admit I attempted to get into the Naruto series, but the formula was too similar to the repetitive nature of Dragonball Z and it just wasn't sticking. Regardless of what I think, the series is a hit, I mean why else would they come out with what seems to be an endless stream of video games?
Enough of what I think, here is what each retailer will be offering this fall. If you like headgear then you'll want to preorder with GameStop where they'll be offering a baseball cap with an orange Naruto symbol on the front. Amazon has two deals going, one being a metal keychain when you preorder the standard game.
However, if you have some extra money laying around you can spring for the game plus an Amazon exclusive action figure set. This is a five figure set featuring characters Naruto, Sasuke, Itachi, Kakashi and Gaara from Naruto Shippuden. From my limited exposure of the series I do recall Kakashi being a badass, as most people with one eye are. Or at least those who cover one eye when they fight. Check out the figures below.
Personally I would go with the figures, then again that baseball cap is pretty boss. Naruto Shippuden: Dragon Blade Chronicles is the latest in a long line of videogame titles based on the anime and manga franchise. Every console since the Gamecube and Gameboy Advance has been graced by a Naruto game, and I expect to see many more on the horizon.
Ranters, I know a lot of you have your eye on those figures. If not then let us know which preorder package you plan on getting this November in the comments.
Naruto Shippuden: Dragon Blade Chronicles hits stores Novermber 16, 2010 for the the Nintendo Wii.
