I'd be surprized if there is. All teh Naruto games are imports and only few shops sell imports.

You can create a free Paypal account and update it with a bank transfer (to a Paypal bank account in your home country). As soon as Paypal adds the money to your account you can pay at websites like Playasia.com. Totally free, I use it too.

Good luck.

Post Paypal & it's uses

Paypal is one of the greatest things to come out of the internet, next to ebay & bit torrent.

To use paypal, you MUST have a bank account. Paypal basically works like an extra bank account that you can transfer money through. They are classified as a "financial institution". You can even get a debit card that is linked to Paypal - although I personally just transfer the money I receive back into my checking account although that takes about 2-3 days.

With paypal, you can buy things online through stores & ebay. You can also RECEIVE money through paypal by selling items through ebay or other website, or if you need money wired to you from family (ha ha). Paypal also has a feature that you can get your money refunded if the seller screws you over.

It is available in MOST countries, although I'm not sure if it is in Japan quite yet, since there is a weird banking system over there.

Bidpay.com is also a great option when paying for auctions, but only to pay US sellers.

Hope that helps! I am strongly thinking about buying a Gamecube JUST to play the 2 Naruto games, since it's unlikely that it will be released here anytime soon.

Telling you that will take me an entire day. Go to Paypal.com and read, read more and read even more, until you get sick of it. all information you require can be found at their site, but it takes some time because there's a whole lot of text, faqs, rules etc.

Last I knew, the Naruto games, those for the PS2, the GC, and even the GBA are only being released in Japan. At least that's what I've been told, however much I wish otherwise, I would love to get the PS2 games.

Gamecube's one big advantage

I wish Playstation would get the hint & make their systems globally compatible. I know you can play Japanese games on a US PS2 if you hack it, but I'm not that risky.

The Gamecube, on the other hand, CAN play Japanese games. The rest of it's games are pretty crappy.. err, shall I say "kiddy," but I think just to play the Naruto games & any other anime game it would be worth it. I've been snagging translation guides for the Naruto games in hopes I'll get them someday.

The Naruto GBA games ARE available on ROM emulators. I like #2 the best (please don't ask me to type the full title). You play as a team & can switch between Naruto, Sasuke & Sakura. And once you beat it they give you another character. Gameplay is simplistic sidescrolling - but very reminiscent of the Super Nintendo days... and with the short supply of Naruto video games, it will do nicely. Naruto #1 on the other hand has a LOT of kana text... and I personally do not want to bust out my dictionary & study guides while I'm playing a game. At the very most I will pronounce the words badly & fumble for their meanings. =)

Along a similar note, what is with Japanese story games? Like the Chobits game on GBA, or the RPG game on SNES? Again, I don't go to any extreme efforts to translate the game, but it only consists of you pushing the button to advance to the next frame... like reading a simplified manga. I could probably beat the whole Chobits game just by setting my controller to "autofire" the A button. I guess it does have ONE stupid little excercise mini game, but it is very simple.

Sorry to ramble! じゃな!

Use the Kikiwai site to get their directions, and in the same mall, there is a store with a geeky fat guy ala glasses that was playing one of the naruto games the last time we went there. Not sure if it was GC or PS2, but if you're gonna gotto kikiwai, you might as well check it out too.
I beleive you go on the second floor via escalator, do a U-turn right off it, and head straight to the back. He sells games/movies and models mostly. Kikiwai is manga/poster/plush shop mostly. I think both stores are on the same level.

Go to Highway 7 and Leslie and there is a restaurant named Saigon Star. Near that plaza is an Asian game store which sells many import games. My friend recently got his Naruto 2 for PS2 there. Chances are there are GC games for Naruto there, give it a try.

Kikiwai overprice their most of their merchandise, it should be your last resort, financial rise. Try hitting pmail or AnimeXtreme. AnimeXtreme is overpriced as well but somewhat cheaper than Kikiwai.

You can place a specialized order with them. I.e. they get it for you, you pay for it.

Not sure, I'm sure if they have the games though, they would have a freeloader or a similar bootdisk.
