About This Game
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja 5 is an action game, developed by CyberConnect2 and published by Bandai Namco Games, which was released in Japan in 2007.
It is the fifth installment in the Ultimate Ninja series. One of the new additions to the game is the introduction of help characters. Assist characters are chosen during character selection, and can be called in during a match to deal extra damage.
Certain character combinations create unique jutsu in a match; these combinations reflect the associations of the characters in the anime and manga. Many of the techniques of the characters from the previous game were updated.
