The little orange jump-suited ninja dude is back, and this time he's brought friends! The thing is, he'd kind of like you to bring some friends to the party, too. For the first time in a Naruto game on the PSP, players can team up with up to three of their mates to do battle with the forces of evil and general nastiness.

You'll be able to team-up using ad hoc play to work together against enemies using just the right tactical combinations of melee and jutus attacks. You'd best have them perfected by the time you hit the killer bosses like Shukaku and Kyubi!

It's not all multiplayer, though. In the single-player mode you'll get to tackle a brand-spanking new original storyline complete with exclusive characters. Adding to the goodies for Naruto fans are the inclusion of the Japanese voiceover, animated cut scenes and opening music sung by the voice of Naturo himself, Junko Takeuchi.

The madcap action will also satisfy existing fans with its cel-shaded style that sticks closely to the look of the tried and tested manga and anime, drawing as it does from the Shippuden continuity. When you've got a top-selling character, why mess with the formula?
