<BLOCKQUOTE>Originally announced as one of the earliest titles for Nintendo's new glorious handheld, Tomy's next videogame instalment of the Naruto saga has finally been released. After excitement levels skyrocketed following the official notice in Japanese Shonen Jump Magazine some time ago, dedicated fans have impatiently waited for Naruto Saikyou Ninja Daikesshuu 3 to arrive on Nintendo DS. It's great to say that the game turned out to be a title which was worth looking forward to, spinning the tale further which began on past versions for GameBoy Advance, offering unique gameplay features and improved graphics due to the one-of-a-kind architecture of the NDS hardware.
All preorders for Naruto Saikyou Ninja Daikesshuu 3 have been cleared already and new orders are very welcome for only US$ 49.90, of course eligible for our Free Shipping Worldwide promotion!
Since the Naruto series began two and a half years ago, there have been almost 125 anime episodes, not to mention the 250+ manga comics, many games across GameCube, PS2 and GBA, plus the Japanese hailing it as the next Dragonball. No surprise then, that the three titles available for GameCube alone managed to sell a total of over a million copies combined. It's clear that if there's just one anime waiting to burst onto the world scene, it's Naruto, and this year the series finally hits America via Cartoon Networks Toonami line-up. Naruto arrives late 2005, but also worth noting is One Piece, starting in May.
In Naruto 3 for NDS you are watching the action on the top screen, while the stylus comes into play on the bottom one, allowing you to direct chakra (energy) and execute attacks. That's what we love so much about the Nintendo DS, you are freed from solely relying on buttons or pad to manage the in-game action. A simple flick of your wrist often feels more natural when facing the challenges you are presented with than it ever could with standard controls. Furthermore, players can perform dazzling fighting techniques like the fireball oriented Goukakyuu no jutsu by blowing into the system's built-in microphone. Switch between characters and watch their stats on the lower screen, where chakra and health bars are conveniently displayed. Prepare to meet all your favorite Ninjas, including Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, Shikamaru and Kiba.
Hidden Leaf village is again at the center of all things storywise and main hero Uzumaki Naruto keeps on doing his best to become the number one martial arts head honcho there. Now, you can also stockpile your trusty weapons and are not left to use just one at a time anymore. Light-footed Naruto is blessed with various fresh moves, he kicks off from walls to do a higher jump, is able to attack while squatting and (right out of a Matrix movie) can run vertically up walls, temporarily defying gravity.
Since an English edition sure can't be expected anytime soon, we definitely recommend getting the Japanese version now, which is simply a great game not only for passionate Naruto enthusiasts, but for anyone who can appreciate a novel take on fighting gameplay, which Naruto Saikyou Ninja Daikesshuu 3 for NDS certainly delivers with a refreshing twist. </BLOCKQUOTE>
