DS gamers get their first chance to battle with older and more experienced versions of Naruto and his friends in this title based on the second generation of the popular animé series. Naruto Shippuden: Ninja Council 4 takes place two and a half years after the original series, and finds Naruto on a quest to save his close friend Gaara from the evil Akatsuki organization. In the story mode, players form a three-man team from the 17 playable characters, making strategic choices based on each member's specialized jutsu techniques. Along the way, series fans can also unlock supernatural abilities that allow them to access previously unreachable areas.
Those looking to test their skills against human opponents can use their touch screen and stylus to unleash attacks as they wirelessly duke it out with up to three friends in "Battle" mode. ~ Christopher Brown, All Game GuideNaruto Shippuden: Ninja Council 4, click here for more details
