Naruto Powerful Shippuden coming to the 3DS in March 2013

Based on the spin-off comedy show

Namco Bandai has announced that 3DS title Naruto Powerful Shippuden will be coming to North America in March 2013. This anime sidescroller comes from developers Inti Creates with a bit of help from Naruto game regulars CyberConnect2.

Naruto Powerful Shippuden is based on the anime Naruto SD: Rock Lee & His Ninja Pals, and comes complete with the oversized heads and over-the-top expressions.

In the trailer above you’ll see that the side-scrolling fighting looks fun, and that the animation is pretty slick.
