Game Guide
     The Naruto series has had a wide variety of video games released across multiple platforms, taking advantage of the latest consoles to be released. The titles include RPGs, platformers, action, strategy and fighting games. Due to licensing issues, some titles will probably never see release in North America. This may prompt some users to consider importing the titles. This can be done to varying degrees of ease and legality. Some consoles like the Gamecube can play imports with a simple swap disk, while others like the Playstation 2 require some degree of modding or the usage of an imported system. The titles below are in JAPANESE TITLE NAME [ENGLISH TRANSLATION] (LOCALIZED NAME) format.
