The Naruto franchise returns on PlayStation2™ with release of Bandai's third Narutimett Hero anime fighting game.

More than 40 fighters evolve in this Nindo battle fighting game with overwhelming content, reaching action limits. Now you can change your fighting style with "ultimate condition change", which recalls forbidden power by using the ultimate Ninjutsu (Art of Ninja).

Adopted from the anime, you are able to perform super powerful "Ultimate Ninjutsu" moves, including summoning techniques like "Kuchiyose", which appear in shape of gigantic characters. In Narutimett Hero 3 you can fully customize your way of input, including adding commands such as "auto hit", "turn", "command" and others.

Each copy of the game ships with a bonus DVD, containing an original animation "Narutimett Animation", which was created by the original makers of the TV anime. The story is about the battle of "Upper Nin vs Lower Nin" and was never shown on TV. It is also linked with the scenario of the RPG mode.


Bandai's much anticipated Naruto: Narutimett Hero 3 is shipping today at US$ 64.90. All early preorders will ship including a Naruto memory card holder preorder gift.

    Kingdom Hearts II is the sequel to Square-Enix mega-hit "Kingdom Hearts". The biggest feature of the game lies in having both Disney cartoon and movie characters and Final Fantasy's more well-known characters making their appearances, letting different characters to meet in this fantastic world.

    Disney worlds and characters that made their appearances in the last work will still star here, like "Beauty & the Beast", "Aladdin" and "Little Mermaid". Additionally, some other productions have also been included, such as "Mulan", "Steamboat Willie", "Pirates of the Caribbean" and more.

    This time, even the battle elements have been buffered by new members. Besides newly added magic and the combination move of Donald Duck and Goofy, the most significant one is the "Drive" system tying abilities to different outfits.
