The name might be alien to some, but Naruto is one of the biggest Manga brands on the planet.
And with 8m games sold worldwide, Namco Bandai is onto a winner with its titles based on the popular comic series, which now includes films, CDs, trading cards and more. The franchise follows the story of martial arts teen Naruto Uzumaki who aims to become the world’s greatest ninja.
In Ultimate Ninja Impact, the latest in a long line of video games, players can take part in 100-man battles or more traditional one-on-one bouts. With flowing gameplay, one-button combos and a gorgeous cartoon style, it makes for a fun pick-up-and-play portable action game for PSP.
The title also features a Tactical Battle mode that challenges players to find traps and specific enemies in each level to turn the tide of battle. It boasts original voice-overs in Japanese and English from the actual actors used in the Naruto Shippuden TV anime series.
Ultimate Ninja Impact also includes a two-player co-op mode complete with enormous bosses to take down. It’s an ideal package for fans of the series or perhaps those who adore other popular Japanese fighters on PSP such as Dissidia Final Fantasy.
