Nintendo of Japan and Tomy have announced that they've reached an agreement that allows Tomy to promote its games using Nintendo's sales and marketing services. One of the first games to be marketed under this agreement will be Naruto, a GameCube fighting game based on the Japanese cartoon and comic of the same name. A Game Boy Advance version of the game is also in the works.
Naruto is scheduled for release in Japan in the spring of 2003, and it will also be on display at the upcoming Jump Festival, which will be held in Japan on December 21 and 22. We'll post more details as they become available.
