Interesting. Has anybody ever played this before? Is it any good?

I played my friend's version for about 10 minutes and was left unimpressed. Of course, you could counter with that I only played it for 10 minutes. For reference, I enjoy the PS2 versions (1-3).

Here's a review by a person and includes Famitsu's score.

Good point monkeypox, forgot about the fighting style difference between the PS2 and GC games.

actually, this is probably a lot closer to the gekitou ninja taisen games for the gamecube than the ps2's narutimet hero series. but yes, word is it's not that great.
you got the mole mitts! dig, dig, dig to your heart's content!

i ordered it and was sorely disappointed, though I shouldn't have been surprised. The music is godawful, the AI is super janky, the controls are mushy, and for 2 player action, both people need the cart, which is hard when the game in question must be imported.

I will say this though, despite the flawed excecution, it DOES work, in an odd way, which will hopefully lead to more (and better) 3D handheld fighters on the DS
