This fighting game is like playing an anime. Naruto and friends return in “Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3,” the latest entry in the popular “Ninja Storm” series. The one-on-one battles are fast-paced and the beautiful graphics are crisp and stunning. There are more than 80 playable characters for gamers to choose from. And to please anime fans even more, the game’s limited-edition, first-print version in Japan comes with a neat anime crossover: a Dragonball costume for Naruto to put on and do the kamehameha in.

With “Tomodachi Collection Shin Seikatsu” (or “New Life”), Nintendo’s wildly popular, “Sims”-like simulation game now has a sequel. In “Tomodachi Collection,” you can interact with your Mii avatars as they live their virtual lives and make new virtual friends. To mark the sequel’s recent launch, Nintendo also released a special 3DS bundle that comes with a “Tomodachi Collection”-themed 3DS XL and the game’s downloadable version for gamers to get friendly with.
