its official, NARUTO Shippuden: Clash of Ninja Revolution 3 has gone gold for Wii. This much anticipated release of Naruto said to be the best anime game of the year with new characters never before seen in previous games (35 characters in total!!). Although some of the new character releases look weak there are definitely some new ones that I am looking forward to playing (I knew I bought a wii for some reason other then looking like a dork swinging the nunchuck around).
