“We’re excited to continue in the Naruto: Rise of a Ninja tradition, boasting the only video game in the franchise that features an online multiplayer mode that lets players compete against their friends in tournaments over the Xbox Live, online entertainment network, and also gives players the opportunity to relive genuine moments of the animation, while exploring the open universe of Naruto,” he added.
