NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe
sent us the first screenshots
from NARUTO Powerful Shippuden
, a Nintendo 3DS game developed by Inti Creates
and CyberConnect2 Co., Ltd.
and set to arrive on March 8, 2013. Bringing to the table a side-scrolling action fighting game with an anime twist, NARUTO Powerful Shippuden is based off of the new anime series NARUTO SPIN-OFF: ROCK LEE & HIS NINJA PALS, the latest series in the NARUTO and NARUTO SHIPPUDEN anime franchise, allowing players to take the role of either whisker-faced Naruto Uzumaki or bushy-eyebrowed Rock Lee and enjoy lively ninja missions directly based off of their animated storylines.
