Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Heroes

What's cooler than a ninja-on-ninja arcade-style beatdown - the kind that the PS2 series Naruto Ultimate Ninja has now sauced up and chop-kicked out for two well-received games? Jessica Alba wearing only an ice-cream bikini and a "come hither" look comes to mind, but in the interest of not having our website blocked by NetNanny, let's go with this: a three-on-three ninja punch-up that you can take with you wherever you go, via your trusty PSP.

Now, before you get too worked up, don't worry - you don't have to control all three ninja warriors at once. But there is a new Hero mode, in which you choose a trio of high-kickers and shuriken whippers and they fight a series of one-on-one battles against the enemy's terrible triumvirate. If your first guy goes down, the second takes over, and so on. We'll admit it's not Earth-shattering - it's basically team battle, which has been around forever. But it's new to this series, and it is cooler than regular battles.
