Even though I’m familiar with the stories, I’m not a huge fan of Naruto or Naruto: Shippuden. However, Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 for the PS3 and 360 was a solid solid fighter that’s largely overlooked by the Call of Duty crowd thanks to its, ah, unappealing subject matter.
Which is why I’m actually curious to see how Naruto Shippuden 3D: The New Era will turn out. Even though it’s developed by Takara Tomy and not Namco-Bandai, the first 3DS Naruto game covers the Five Kages arc of the anime/manga and looks to be a promising 2D brawler. Hit the jump for the trailer.
Naruto Shippuden 3D: The New Era comes out for the Nintendo 3DS on June 17th.
