Naruto Wii Fighting Game Confirmed

March 13, 2007

Tomy and D3Publisher of America today confirmed earlier rumors regarding a fighting game for the Wii set in the popular Naruto anime universe. Tentivly titled Naruto: Clash of Ninja MVZ, this Wii fighter will feature content created exclusively for the North American market when it ships this fall.

The game will be based on episodes from VIZ Media’s anime series Shohen Jump Naruto and will include 14 characters, including some that have never been featured in the Clash of Ninja game series. Naruto: Clash of Ninja MVZ will also take advantage of the Wii Remote in “fast-paced ninja action for up to four players in nine different gameplay modes.”

The fighting game will also sport new character animations, new special attack animations and for the first time new interactive environments. Developed by Eighting, Naruto: Clash of Ninja MVZ takes advantage of the Wii system by allowing players to launch attacks with the Wii Remote using “Ninja-like” movements, and features special mini-games created exclusively for use with the Wii remote.
