Naruto: Ninja Council 3 review

  • Touch screen special techniques
  • Characters are well animated
  • The Burning Slap of Youth
  • No retry/restart option
  • Leaf Village
  • Only a few hours worth of play

Because it wouldn’t be a proper sequel without more, more, more - Naruto: Ninja Council 3 ups the previously meager character roster to a whopping 27 lavishly animated, playable fighters. In addition to some simple combos, uppercuts, and powerful jumps, each character is endowed with special techniques that you can pull off given the right amount of Chakra power (below your health bar) and some deft implementation of the touch screen. Warning: Possible Jargon Ahead.

Spin a wheel for Naruto’s Uzunaki Barrage, blow into the mic to unleash Sasuke flaming Phoenix Flower, or tap chakra pressure points on a body with the stylus. What’s even better is that you can take any character's special move into battle with any character. Hate the fat bodied Choji, yet still envious of his Human Boulder technique? No problem. Swap out Sakuro’s Girl Power move and take it into battle as one of your three specials techniques. Ah, customization.
