Action 30 October 2007
Released exclusively for Xbox 360, it is an action game belonging to the popular Naruto franchise.

The player explores the game world and talks to other characters in search of missions requiring them mostly to take part in spectacular battles, during which special powers typical for the series are used. All of this is complemented by cel-shaded, cartoonish visuals, which is typical for games belonging to the Naruto series.
