Since the series is so popular, Tomy definitely got the long end of the stick, as they manage to consistently release widely popular games for the Nintendo DS and Wii. It certainly can't hurt that they have a certain touch for 3-D fighters based on the series. Unfortunately, the same can't really be said of their action-platforming Ninja Council series, originally for the Game Boy Advance and later for the DS. I can't even identify what they lost from the first game in the series (which I enjoyed) to make each subsequent offering less and less enjoyable. The switch to the Shippuden series has only helped a little, and in this latest release, Naruto Shippuden: Ninja Council 4, the same glaring issues make a return and somehow manage to seem worse for the wear."
