Unleash Jutsu With Naruto

NARUTO: NINJA DESTINY for the Nintendo DS handheld system has shipped to retailers nationwide, announced TOMY corporation and D3Publisher of America on Thursday.

Featuring stunning, cinematic techniques and the original orange-clad ninja, the fighting game promises vibrant 3D battles that are true to VIZ Media's hit animated TV series NARUTO.

Players can take their ninja battles on the road with NARUTO: NINJA DESTINY, the first 3D head-to-head NARUTO fighter for the Nintendo DS.

Featuring scenes, characters, and storylines up to the 140th episode of the hit anime series, the game improves upon the Japanese original with additional characters, content, and improved frame rate.

Any aspiring ninja can unleash powerful jutsu and take advantage of items to brawl their way to victory against 16 different characters.

Dual-screen combat will allow fierce battles to unfold on the top screen while special power ups can be strategically unleashed on the touch screen for fast, frenetic action.

Designed to appeal to both fighting game veterans and newcomers, players can become a proficient ninja master by chaining together a string of deadly combos.

NARUTO: NINJA DESTINY offers an intense single-player story and versus mode, along with wireless multiplayer combat.
