Naruto: Gekitou Ninja Taisen! 3 announced

Tomy will release a third title in its Naruto fighting game series for the GameCube.


TOKYO--According to Weekly Jump magazine, Tomy is planning to release Naruto: Gekitou Ninja Taisen! 3 for the GameCube. It should be available in Japan by the end of the year.

Naruto: Gekitou Ninja Taisen! 3 will have at least three new characters: the chubby Chouji, the female ninja Temari, and the ninja master Jiraiya. The characters are grouped into teams of three based on the game's manga and anime inspiration, such as Team Konoha (Ino, Shikamaru, Chouji) and Team Sand (Kankuro, Gaara, Temari). Tomy has hinted that there will be a new game mode based on these teams. The game will also inherit the four-player fighting mode from last year's iteration of the series.
