The game takes place in the incredibly popular world of the anime/manga, Naruto.

Since then it's spread from its homeland of Japan through out the world and been syndicated in countless languages across countless countries.
The story itself revolves around a young ninja named Naruto who wants to become Hokage, the head ninja of his village basically. As with a lot of popular manga/anime the story revolves around a constant struggle to prove oneself and leads the viewer through endlessly thrilling and bombastic fight scenes as our hero struggles on through his journey.
The game is a fighting game with players pitched in thrilling combat playing as and against 80 characters made famous by the anime and manga. There is a story campaign where players can play through a superbly written story much akin to the TV series. You'll be treated to lavishly made cut scenes that intersperse and connect the multitude of fights you'll have with a whole range of the cast.
There's also the usual host of game modes that let players spar off against each other or AI opponents. If you're itching to settle a beef or if you want to know how a particular show down from the show would go down if you were in charge, then go right ahead.
The fights themselves reward skillful use of combos and timing. Each character has a number of special moves they can perform if you build up their special ability. These abilities are thrilling affairs that tear the battlegrounds apart and rival a fourth of July celebration in terms of spectacle. The environments themselves are detailed and true to the original work. A lot of the environments boast destructible scenery also that adds a whole new layer of awesome to your fights.
The control system should be relatively simple to pick up if you have a small amount of experience with fighters. Otherwise you may struggle to keep up with more skillful human opponents or the harder of AI opponents. A bit of practice and maybe a little independent research though and you'll be pulling off combos like a pro.
