Naruto: Ninja Arena takes place during the iconic Chuunin Exams, which was the perfect setting to center the game around. To perfectly encapsulate the love of the fast-paced, back-and-forth combat that was established early and prevalent throughout Naruto, Team Kaedama chose simultaneous dice throwing as the mechanic for this new competitive game!
