  1. This game has nothing to do with the Naruto manga/anime/game series that is popular today, it just happens to use the word naruto in it's title. Here's some posts from japan-guide.com that can help explain why the character was given the name Naruto.

    "Naruto-Uzumaki precisely is the symbol of whirlpool just as the headband. Naruto, the fishcake, came from its white on red pattern that resembles naruto-uzumaki. The origin of the word Naruto seems to be "naru seto", the roaring strait, which is also the name of place famous for frequent whirlpools near Osaka. The word Uzumaki made of "uzu"(swirl) and maki(roll)."

    "Stolen from Wikipedia: For the character's name, he chose "Naruto", in reference to a ramen topping called kamaboko, which is a sliced stick with a pink whirlpool-like design in the middle. The reason why he chose this name was because Ramen was the character's favorite food in the series. The character's surname "Uzumaki" is a pun on "spiral" (渦巻), while "Uzumaki" refers to a three-dimensional spiral, like a whirlpool or vortex. A more accurate translation for spiral would be "Rasen". The series is seen to make frequent references to spirals"

  1. As Camden stated in his answer, this game has nothing to do with the Naruto manga/anime/game series. It is related to Narutomaki.

    And adding some information to Camden answer...
    The title of the game is mispelled here in GameFAQs. The correct is "Tsuukai Gag Aventure: Narutomaki Hichou", that means "Thrilling Gag Adventure: Narutomaki Secret Book". The name is probably a pun on an old Japanese movie called "Naruto Hichou" (A Fantastic Tale of Naruto).
