Naruto Shippuden: Shinobi Rumble is more accessible than most fighting games, many of which continue to be more and more complex. Players can easily pick it up and start playing, and with 16 characters to choose from, fans of the Naruto franchise should appreciate seeing all of their favorites as selectable combatants. There is an underlying story as players progress through each battle in single-player mode, which adds some cohesion to an otherwise jumble of random confrontations. Like many other Naruto fighting games, this one is true to the series and should not disappoint anyone who appreciates the long-running anime series.
