Naruto Powerful Shippuden gets New Trailer and Release Date

Naruto Powerful Shippuden gets New Trailer and Release DateNaruto games, and indeed the Manga that it is based on, have never taken themselves entirely seriously. They have always contained a large helping of humour, but this latest new game in the series takes that one step further.

With Naruto Powerful Shippuden – with Rock Lee & his Ninja Pals – we see the well-loved Naruto characters get the mini treatment, as they are shrunk down and made cuter. Based on the art style of the Rock Lee & his Ninja Pals cartoon, which is a spin-off of the main Manga, the game sees the traditionally more serious Shippuden Naruto storyline given the Chibi-treatment.

That is not to say that the game will be all hugs and kisses, these mini-ninjas will still be kicking some serious butt in this side=scrolling beat-em-up, and players will be able to take control of either Naruto or Rock Lee – each of which has their own storyline to play through, or you can enter the Endless Battle mode, which speaks for itself.

See the latest trailer for the game below:

Naruto Powerful Shippuden be released on March 8 in Europe and March 5 in North America, only on Ninendo 3DS.
