Live Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Gameplay Of The Fourth Hokage

By Spencer . July 16, 2012 . 12:42am

Set at the very beginning of the Naruto series, Namco Bandai’s Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 demo starts with the Third Hokage fighting the Nine Tails. Meanwhile, the Fourth Hokage is fighting a "Masked Man" who utilizes time-space ninjutsu. This fight used the Storm fighting engine with mid-round secret factors. If you do a chakra dash you can trigger a QTE where the Fourth tosses a kunai that passes through the Masked Man. The Fourth quickly counters by teleporting above and launching a massive Rasengan.


Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is slated for release in spring 2013 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

  • Yellow Flash of Konoha. Naruto’s father. Facing against Tobi. Hmm… I think that is a canon fight sort of isn’t it?

    • Shogunreaper


      Its a the full story of how and why the kyuubi attacked konoha.

      • Oh ok so it is the canon fight then not just a random Yellow Flash vs. Tobi fight.

        • Yeah, it’s a canon fight. Happened in both the manga and Anime.

          • I said the. I knew there was one. I wasn’t sure if this was it though.

    Now i might be the only one who thinks that way but, as far as i’m concerned, there isn’t that much difference between UNS3 and the previous titles, except for maybe the characters and the added story sequences, and if you ask me, that isn’t much of an improvement, i’d hoped they improve the actual gameplay ;/

      Meh.   At this point, Jojo >> Naruto

    • XGriever

      its only recently been announced just wait and see what they have to offer in the coming months before you pass judgement.

    • Nitraion

      That was my thought exactly except they bring back ulti-jutsu to original NUNS1 length and breakable or interactive stage… this just generation update all over again…. 

      • Shogunreaper

        Making longer ultimate jutus is not an improvement. Sure i would like that but i would rather have something that actually matters in fights.

    • All you’ve seen is a boss battle. Wait for the actual metagame gameplay.

  • Niermyico

    I wished they changed some of the characters’ move sets a little. The 4th plays the same. There’s nothing new about that.

  • Jahmere Durham

    Bring back those boss battle plaese!

  • Spider-Man

    God damn I love how over the top CC2’s fights are. The ending to the Kyuubi boss battle was ridiculous. 

  • Domii

    Holy crap CC2. Looks beautiful as always, but please STOP WITH THE DAMN QTE’s, make the combat deeper, and you will win back this Naruto maniac.
