The jump-suited orange ninja with a distinctly American look is making a return to the world of gaming, and he's brought plenty of stuff to jump around on.

Naruto: Ninja Council 3 is the first appearance of the young fighter on the DS, and he's got his platforming head on. Ninja Council 3 combines traditional platform action with a beat-'em-up game mechanic, meaning players will be able to fly around the screen as they do battle in true animé style!

The ante has been suitably upped since previous iterations of the series on the Game Boy Advance. Where previously there were only three playable characters up for grabs, there's now a whopping 27. The attack system will allow you to mix and match these character's techniques to create the best of all possible combos for whichever one of the 60-something missions there are to complete.

The game will also make the most of the DS's functionality. Players will be able to activate certain attacks using the touch screen or microphone, while Wi-Fi is used to allow four player battles, including Timed Mode, Scroll Collection Mode and Head-to-Head Versus Mode.
