Naruto fans have had quite the year, with four high-profile games being released since 2010. Namco Bandai is aiming to add a fifth title to that list with Naruto Shippuden: Kizuna Drive, and we have some new screenshots straight from the publisher.
Naruto Shippuden: Kizuna Drive is a brand-new Sony PSP Naruto game that borrows a lot of its gameplay style from the excellent Monster Hunter franchise. Complete with an original storyline and a new multiplayer combat system, fans can take part in a Story Mode with dozens of missions or build their own team in the game's Free Mission Mode. The "Kizuna Drive" namesake in the title comes from a new combo system that lets players chain their attacks together for devastating damage at the cost of inflicting damage on yourself if you miss the timing.
Naruto Shippuden: Kizuna Drive will be released in North America on March 22 on the Sony PSP for $39.99 and is available for pre-order.
