Narutos katana-slash prices

Clash of Ninja for GameCube, Ninja Council for Game Boy Advance now selling for $20; sequels coming later this year.

by

Ninjas are well-known for slashing their enemies, but thanks to D3Publisher of America, they're known for something else--slashing prices! The American arm of the Japanese publisher today announced that two Naruto titles are now available for $19.99.

Naruto: Clash of Ninja for the GameCube has reached Player's Choice Club status, meaning it will get new packaging and the new price tag. Also now available for a 20-dollar bill is Naruto: Ninja Council for the Game Boy Advance. Both games were originally released in early March this year.

The two games will also be getting full-priced sequels very soon. D3Publisher confirmed the release dates for Naruto: Clash of Ninja 2 on the GameCube (September 26) and Naruto: Ninja Council 2 on the GBA (October 10).

Naruto: Clash of Ninja is rated T for Teen and Naruto: Ninja Council is rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and Older.

why is that so many negative comments about this game, this game owns, yes there are many better fighting games bt its good of its own, i really like the dust effect after you jump or get hit into the ground, Guilty Gear was waaaay over the top when it comes to the dust effect when you jump, its just too many dust. i really like this game but i acn't buy it unless it come here in europe, and guess what, its COMMING, and yeah i had all the impression from the gameplay videos i watched.

I imported the 3 installment of the gc fighter. I'll wait for the second to be cut down since I don't believe that the fighting is that great for under 4 players.

I still don't think Naruto: Clash of Ninja is worth $20. It's an okay game but we can get lots of better games for that same price. Maybe Clash of Ninja 2 will be better and it will be worth $20 when it gets Player's Choice.

Cause all they're doing is porting the Japanese games, the 3rd title in the Ninja Council series is out for the DS.

Wolfskill the Japanese who do not speak English would tell you the Japanese voices are horrible compared to the Americans. The American voice work captures the spirit of the Japanese voice work. Often a dub that is **** at for being horrible matches the Japanese track in terms of quality but since the dub haters don't understand Japanese they consider the Japanese to be superior by default.

since both games are average, this price makes it more bearable

Don't worry Clash of Ninja 2 is definitely going to have way more depth than Clash of Ninja 1, you cant say no to 4 player all out battles, especially if your a fan.

Good for Naruto fans I guess but still it's not that good of a game, it's like Dragonball Z Budokai. And that sucked.

Oh good. I have seen the game and played it but there just wasn't enough character's to pay the original prive tag. The game is definiately worth 20 bucks.
