Added DiffLines:

** Ultimate's and Jutsu's can be swapped out, and instead of needing alternate costumes to use different skills, you only need to swap the skills out.

* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: Since in this game's story mode you only play as the good guys, you get to control Tenten, Hinata, Rock Lee and Sakura during the Chunin Exam preliminaries. The problem is that, in the manga, the first three characters lost their matches and Sakura's fight with Ino ended in a draw. And no, they aren't shown losing in a cutscene after that; the game treats their victories as genuine. Which is even weirder when, during the finals, you get to fight against the people they supposedly beat.

* AndNowForSomethingCompletelyDifferent: The story mode will occasionally break up battles with one of two minigames in an otherwise straight fighting game.


The meat of the game is experienced by playing its Ultimate Mission Mode. Here you relive the early adventures of the Manga/{{Naruto}} series by playing story related arcs as missions, beginning with the formation of Team 7 and ending with Sasuke's defection from the Leaf Village. In order to unlock new story missions to play however, you need to complete sides-quests ranked from D to A and gather enough experience points to unlock further content. Playing story content isn't the only thing you can do in Ultimate Mission Mode; The entire Hidden Leaf Village is explorable and filled with puzzles to complete, collectibles to find, and platforming challenges to test your skill with.

* AdaptationDistillation: Not everything or every major player from the pre-TimeSkip era is playable. The Land of Wave arc, and by extension Zabuza and Haku, are the most noticeable of the absences.
* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: Since in this game's story mode you only play as the good guys, you get to control Tenten, Hinata, Rock Lee and Sakura during the Chunin Exam prelim fights. The problem is that those three characters lost their match in the manga (or tied, in Sakura's case), and no, they aren't shown losing in a cutescene after that, the game treats their victories as genuine. Which is even weirder when, during the finals, you get to fight against the people they supposedly beat.
* AndYourRewardIsClothes: You can unlock Sasuke's second outfit, The Sand Trio's, and Shikamaru's Sasuke Retrieval Arc outfits by completing the story missions related to them.
* BigBad: Just like in the first half of the story, Orochimaru is the main baddie threatening the Leaf and Sasuke in particular.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Playing this game can be quite jarrying if you played the sequels first.
** Ultimate Justu retained the ''Naruto: Ultimate Ninja'' method of evading damage from them: defeat your opponent in a button mash race, and they waste their Ultimate. This mechanic was dropped in the later titles.

** Boss battles are only against giant opponents, meaning that only Gamabunta, Manda and Shukaku are bosses here. Somebody who played the sequels first might be quite surprised to see that epic, plot critical fights like Naruto vs Neji, Naruto vs Sasuke or Hiruzen vs Orochimaru have nothing that made them harder or at least different than other less meaningful fights.
** Also, compared to other entires, there's very little dialogue and/or custcenes, and the story progresses in a rather clumsy and abrupt way.
