You Decide How The Story Goes In Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3

By Spencer . September 10, 2012 . 12:35am

imageNaruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3’s story mode has a little choose your own adventure in it. The "Ultimate Decision" system lets players make pick a path in the middle of the story that changes what fights you see. A scan from jump shows two forks one with Shippuden Sasuke and another with Cursed Seal Sasuke from the Valley of the End.


Speaking of Sasuke, a screenshot from his story mode shows him fighting a group of enemies. It looks kind of like Naruto: Uzumaki Chronicles or Dynasty Warriors-ish.


Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is slated for release in spring 2013.

    This sounds nice as long as the story is not to long when doing this.

  • Klaus00

    still want my Konohamaru

    • IshimaruKaito

      HERE HERE!

    • XYZ_JolteonZ980

      Yes, Konohamaru is a must!

    • Domii

      I use to hate Konohamaru, but for some reason he’s grown on me.

  • IshimaruKaito

    i wonder how long this story mode is gnna b?

  • MrKappa

    These things are never as grand as they sound. Ultimate decision? They are most likely just choices so you can see the story from a different view point.

  • Abhishek Posooa

    Ultimate decision huh…Different point of views huh…
    All right then:
    Play as ALL the Uchihas!

  • Domii

    I hope this game covers most of the war so I can play as some of the legendary ninjas shown in the anime/manga.

    • XYZ_JolteonZ980

      Well they usually make it close to wherever the anime is at the time the game comes out, MIfune and the other one he was fighting are already playable, though I guess Gaara’s dead etc could be playable, maybe, though I dont know how I feel of playing as the world resurrection jutsu versions of itachi etc…

      • Domii

        I just want to play as Madara and the gold and silver brothers no matter if they’re the reanimation versions. I will also wet my pants if all the old Kages are in the game. lol

  • cameron forsyth
    • Thanks for the Scan
      NARUTO forever!!

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    I wonder if then they make an excuse to follow the storyline after the changes.
    Sasuke: I was defeated by Naruto in the Valley of the End. Considering this power was not enough, I’ll go with Orochimaru to see if he can.

    Also, those hack and slash battles have also been available in Ultimate Ninja Shippuden 4 and 5 (accel in Japan). Cyberconnect already has experience with these type of battles.

    • Yeah, they kinda have been. But those weren’t really Hack and slash…..Ultimate Ninja Impact was the main hack and Slash one. Accel 2(UN5) was more like .Hack G.U while Accel 1 was a very limited in terms of fighting.

  • Kaihedgie

    So yer sayin’ I have a chance to have Sasuke NOT act like a complete idiot?

    • Domii

      Good lord I couldn’t agree with you more. Sasuke is the true definition of a whiney baby. Even Naruto after the whole Negato(Pain) saga seems to act much more mature than him.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      I hope >:} Sasuke is a miss-leaded fool

    • May be, But if the (What-If) stories will keep the characters “on-their-character” that will not happen ..sowwy

  • Its basically an updated Ultimate Ninja Impact. I’m loving it so much.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    so I can let Sakura and 
    Sasuke  die?! awesome!!!

    • But for What will Naruto fight for then?

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        lol becoming leader

  • After watching Hunter X Hunter i start to notice some of the major fails of the naruto series.
    I watched it all, and there are some brilliant stuff, but to much focus on the Naruto Sasuke aspect.

    • Domii

      No sir you are wrong. Naruto is flawless and nobody can ever say anything negative about it in my presence, do you understand me mr?!!

      *Naruto’s biggest fan has spoken*

      • OatMatadoQuatro

        That’s the complete opposite of how the internet works. If in Youtube, somebody leaves a Naruto comment in another anime’s video, people start bashing it.

        • Right Cause Not everyone has the same Taste ,some Dont like the focus on (NARUTO x SASUKE) relationship, But I find it what makes the story move

      • even thought NARUTO is great anime it’s not FLAWLESS, a some of episodes has bad art, a loooot of filler (depend on how you see it it may be good).

        the story is good and has few (if not at all) Flaws or errors or (something-is-not-right)s Masashi Did a Perfect work in it.

        and I see the manga as good (and soetimes Better) than the anime

    • OatMatadoQuatro

      I gave up on Hunter x Hunter when the author stopped Kurapica’s revenge arc  “the assassins are afraid of ghosts.” Moreover, Kurapica and Leorio were my favorite characters and they disappeared. I thought it could still be good but the next arc was like mix of .hack and Yu-Gi-Oh! . Then the chimeras appeared and the story became really simple (besides many called it Hiatus x Hiatus)

      • EverEndingStory

        Keep reading the Chimera arc. It seems simple at first, but this is merely a deception in order to subvert pretty much everything you expect out of a shonen fight series. The ending is beautiful, and the villains are some of the best characterized characters I’ve read in a manga.

  • i hope i can allow sasuke and sakura to die or whatever….sasuke is just a sad sad human always looking for someone to blame D:

  • Anime10121

    Cant wait for this!  NUNS has become one of my favorite series this gen (well barring Generations, as its the one I dont own)!  The games are done SO well, and this one seems to be taking more of an action route like NUNS:NI.  Hopefully it retains the open world adventure elements from the first two games too though :)

  • Göran Isacson

    Interesting. What I’m interpreting this as right now is that they will let the player explore some “what-ifs”, like what if Sasuke just stayed with Orochimaru all the way through, what if perhaps Killer Bee decided to go after Akatsuki instead of just goof around, what if Pain succeeded, like the alternate routes in Fist of The North Star: Ken’s Rage.

    If that does turn out to be the case, I for one would be pretty interested in seeing what they come up with. Perhaps even… another Killer Bee rap video? I can dream!

  • Cjs0511

    What if the Tailed Beasts had ruled the land and there were no ninjas?
    Giant Tailed Beasts fighting against each other?
    Please please do it, these guys are the only reason I even read Naruto

  • Solomon_Kano

    Oho? Sweet. Now I just hope they give me EFFING KONOHAMARU AND THE SOUND FOUR!!!


  • who you callin pinhead?

    wait remember how naruto says to sasuke how their roles could have been reversed?maybe with the ultimate decision thing we could see what could have happened if naruto turned evil and sasuke stayed in konoha.that would be pretty cool in my opnion. 

    •  Really?!!
      I want to see …(even thought i don’t think they’ll make this options)
