Naruto Shippuden: Naruto vs Sasuke

Posted on August 21, 2010

With all of the Storm 2 updates, you thought we forgot about all other Naruto games? Never! Remember that Naruto Shippuden Nintendo DS game we posted about 5 months ago? Well, we finally have a big update for it! Descriptions, images, and the box art are included!

TOMY has secretly announced Naruto Shippuden: Naruto vs. Sasuke on various retailer websites (such as Amazon.com and EBGames.com) for a street release of November 16, 2010.

As we mentioned 5 months ago, Naruto vs. Sasuke is the sixth installment in the Ninja Council series. It is a 2D side scrolling platformer that features Naruto and company running around and beating up enemies. The game incorporates several tag-team specials such as Sakura throwing Naruto into a plethora of enemies or Sai allowing Naruto to ride one of his ink creatures. Naruto Shippuden: Naruto vs Sasuke was originally released in Japan on July 4, 2008 under the title Naruto Shippuden: Saikyou Ninja Daikesshu Gekitotsu!! Naruto vs. Sasuke.

The game will cost for $29.99, but if you want the special edition, and have $84.99 to spare, Amazon.com has got a treat for you! Along with the game comes five 4″ figures, Naruto, Sasuke, Sai, Sasori, and Deidara. They look really neat and are worth the buy for collectors.


Now, for what should be the official press description and features of the game:
