I'm aware that most of you aren't massive Naruto nerds like myself, and you're probably wondering why you should care about a game featuring a strangely colourful ninja fighting an enormous dog that breathes fire , but still, I can't help but get excited for this game.
I'm aware of the flaws of the series -- but as Naruto the show (and manga) ramps up to what I'm assuming is its conclusion, the stakes are high, and the game seems to reflect this. Footage from the trailer shows content based on story from the most recent episodes of the show itself -- Gaara leading the Ninja troops, Naruto fighting to tame the Kyuubi. Good stuff. It also seems to have added numerous new characters from the newest episodes, including some of the old ninjas being dug up and zombiefied by Kabuto.
