Hey there! My name is Zhang Khai-En (Timothy Tiu).
Nice to meet you. This is my first FAQ, so do forgive
if you find some parts hard to read or the ASCII art
uninteresting.

I decided to make this FAQ since a lot of people have
quite some difficulty completing all the dates.

I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed
making this FAQ. Cheers!

P.S. If you find ANY error at all, whether spelling or
informational, please contact me immediately at
ZhangKhaiEn@gmail.com. I'll be sure to credit you!

Welcome to my Narutimate Hero 3 Dating FAQ! This FAQ
will guide you to getting the dates for every single
one of the twenty-five dateable characters.

Character Dating is not dating per se. It's more of
hanging out with the character. To do this, just talk
to any dateable character after purchasing their
required date item from the merchant.

You have to date them twice before they'll give you
any reward. What are the rewards? I'm still finishing
that list so you'll have to wait 'til the next update! =)

THIS FAQ ASSUMES YOU ARE NOT CURRENTLY DOING ANY MISSION.
That is to assure that the character will appear where
they are supposed to appear. If they're part of the
current mission, you won't be able to date them until the
mission is either finished, failed, or dropped.

At the start of RPG Mode, a mission automatically activates,
and you won't be able to date Kakashi, Sasuke, Sakura, and
Shizune until the tournament is over. Additionally, Iruka
won't pop out in front of the academy as he normally does,
so you have to talk to him inside the Ninja Dojo in order
to date him.

The Konoha merchant is the key to dating, since he's
the one who sells you with the items your dates need.
He can be found in the middle-left portion of the
Konoha Main Area. He has a brown shirt, black pants,
and is seen carrying a big box on his back.

Buy everything he sells. You'll need them ALL, anyway.
The "regular" version costs 5000, and the "better" one
costs 10,000. All in all you need 75,000 to purchase
everything.

If you have any questions NOT ANSWERED IN THIS FAQ,
kindly email me at ZhangKhaiEn@gmail.com with the
words "Narutimate Hero: 3" in the email subject.

For any other Naruto question you may want to ask that
is not related to dates, kindly go to the GameFAQs
Narutimate Hero 3 Messege Board located at:
http://boards.gamefaqs.com/gfaqs/gentopic.php?board=929749


Q. I can't find the characters! <insert character name>
   just doesn't appear!

A. Go out of Konoha by pressing the Triangle Button, and
   then choosing the last option. Go to any other place,
   and then return. You will see that the characters
   have changed. The set order of this is:
   
   Set A: Gai, Kankurou, Shino
   Set B: Anko, Kurenai, Shizune
   Set C: Hinata, Iruka, Tenten, Shikamaru
   Set D: Kakashi, Lee, Temari, Tsunade
   Set E: Asuma, Chouji, Hanabi
   Set F: Gaara, Ino, Sakura
   Set G: Kiba, Neji, Sasuke
   
   Do note that if you do any activities, such as play
   minigames or gamble, the order will skip ahead by one
   or more sets, so just to be safe, enter/exit without
   doing anything.
   
   I will also be making another FAQ about that topic
   (Character Set Rotation) after I finish this current
   Character Dating FAQ.
