In a press release earlier today TOMY And D3Publisher Of America announce a Naruto fighting game for the Wii console.
This head-to-head fighting title will feature exclusive content for the North American market based on episodes from VIZ Media’s hit anime series SHONEN JUMP NARUTO. The game will take advantage of the Wii Remote in fast-paced ninja action for up to four players in nine different gameplay modes.
The next generation in NARUTO games will include all new character animations, new special attack animations and for the first time new interactive environments.

NARUTO: Clash of Ninja MVZ will include 14 characters – including some that have yet to be featured in the Clash of Ninja game series. The fast-paced ninja action for up to four players will have nine different gameplay modes including Story Mode, Single Player and Multiplayer modes.
Naruto: Clash of Ninja MVZ (codename) is expected to ship Autumn 2007.
