By Spencer . September 24, 2012 . 3:02am

CyberConnect2 goes back to before Naruto’s birth in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3. Players will jump from rooftops while fighting the Nine Tails with the Third Hokage. Later in the game, you’ll take on the Nine Tails as Naruto.


Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 adds Darui, Mifune, and Hanzo the Salamander to the roster. Mifune is unique since he plays like a samurai. Darui who was a support character in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations will give Sasuke a taste of his own electricity.


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

    If this doesn’t look great I don’t know what does… *___*

  • Domii

    *looks at the video, claps his hands and screams like a girl*

    Seriously though, In Naruto’s current level he’ll make Sasuke his bitch. It’s not even a challenge. Sasuke’s Susanoo has no chance against Naruto’s real power, that’s why I always find it funny how CC2 always makes them look equal just to add drama to it. Because lets face it, Naruto is a beast even in sage mode.

    • revivegamesrise23

       Brofist my dude!! your exactly right! he’s a Beast and Sasuke is going to get his ass whooped by Naruto because he’s just that Awesome!!!

  • XxStoicmonkeyxX

    story mode looks amazing just like storm 2

    but multilayer is most likely broken.

    • revivegamesrise23

       i know right? i wonder what they’ll do for multiplayer. hmmmm eh oh well At least we Got A badass Single Player just like Ultimate ninja storm 2, Keep up the surprises CC2!! Good work

      • They’re doing a lot of things to the multiplayer but we’ll get the changes as they go on.

  • Linhua

    T^T … please, Cyber Connect 2 just make it a 4 player brawler so I can look past the bumping and enjoy my Naruto series again… I reeeaaally wanna come back to this… u_u …

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    I rarely get excited with Naruto game here but the single player there looks beast lol.

    This actually looks really cool there.

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    Nice, but it needs more creepy Sasuke scenes

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

     Sasuke And Naruto should just  kiss and make up already. lol

    • OatMatadoQuatro

      Those jokes are getting old. Everything knows Sasuke is only into revenge. Every time he is getting revengence, his face changes a lot. 

      • Domii

        “Those jokes are getting old”

        Ummm, no there not.

        •  After more than 6 six years…Yeah, they are getting old.

          • OatMatadoQuatro

            He, it’s like those Roxas/Axel and Sora/Riku jokes. 

          • Anime10121

             @Amaterasu4:disqus  and @yahoo-HS5UAIK7BIOH5QI3GI3BWTXKFE:disqus , I dont actually think he meant it in a “homosexual” way or anything, I just took it as him saying they need to finally reconcile there differences and be friends again.  Which after all thats been done to prove his friendship to Sasuke, you’d think the guy would just oblige and go back to the village, I mean, other than some council members, nobody at the village now (at least as far as I’m aware) is actually responsible for the whole Uchiha obliteration thingy.

  • Anime10121

    That trailer has spoiled SO much for me anime-wise, but I dont care, that looks flippin AWESOME, as have the other UNS games been!

  • Z3

    Mifune’s ultimate looks beast as hell

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    Naruto is gonna be sued by PETA for the way he treats animals.

  • They improved the graphics even further..:O

  • Abhishek Posooa

    God,they made Sasuke even more awesome m/
    Hope he’ll be playable with his Eternal MS.

  • Crimson_Cloud

    They really pumped up graphics even further. It looks so crisp and smooth as a freaking butter. Please let there be 5 Kages VS ”you know who” boss battle. Even if it’s a original one.

    I hope some day, we get JRPGs with this animation quality.

    • SerendipityX

      I often wonder why no one takes cues from CC2’s animation quality especially  when it comes to anime-based games.

      • OatMatadoQuatro

        The animation from this trailer was almost as good the one from the animated movie .hack//GU The Trilogy (unlike hack//The Movie which was more realistic and less anime). Knowing CC2, the hack and slash will be pretty good.

  • XiaomuArisu

    Why cant the Anime look this great?

  • Herok♞

    ok now that joke is out the way I can say this honestly looks fantastic, I skipped Generations but this making me want to reconsider so I can find a way to pass the time until this out.

  • Spider-Man

    This was pretty damn intense. Day 1 buy like always for me.

  • Göran Isacson

    Makes me wonder if they’re going to do some kind of reverse storymode here, what with Naruto sometimes using a Chidori and having Sasukes cray-cray eyes. Some kind of AU where it was Naruto that became all RAGH REVENGE and Sasuke became the villages protector? Who knows.

    • Crimson_Cloud

      Nah, i don’t think so. The Naruto holding up Chidori was just a symbolic image where he wanders what would have happened if he was in his friend’s place. Everything happening in this video is just a buffed up version from anime.

      • Göran Isacson

        Aah, I see. I guess it’s been a while since I read that chapter because I don’t remember that scene…

        Although I DO recall they said they’d do SOMETHING in this game (or was it some other Naruto game) with alternate timelines/turn of events, like you would be able to make decisions that would make the story branch out into different paths, so they may do something like change how the story turned out, just not to the extent of making Naruto into Sasuke and Sasuke into Naruto.

        • Crimson_Cloud

          Yeah, the decisions that alter the course of the story have been announced for this game, although to what extend, it is unknown. I’m guessing since it won’t go far into the story they had to improvise by putting this option.

  • i am just waiting until they put madara in the game

  • Syn

    Thank goodness the graphics improved from generations(anyone that owns Ninja storm 2 and generations will know what I mean, storm 2 had great graphics and then boom, ps 2 looking stuff in generations), this looks absolutely awesome, now if they can make the versus mode and multiplayer mode great, then its going right up there with my favorite DBZ games.

    •, generations looked indentical, if not better than uns2.
      In fact, I’m pretty sure the character models are all exactly the same throughout UNS2, UNSG and UNS3.

      • Syn

        Play all 3 back to back and you will see the difference, I cant direct you to vids cos the definition is usually lower, let me break it down for you, UNS1 has the best graphics(outside story cinematics), UNS2 is great but skimps just a little on the lighting, UNSG, has lower pixels on many of the effects to the point that you can see the jaggies(square edges for those that dont know), the lighting is really bad, I have UN4 for ps2 and the cinematic finishers look better than the gameplay in UNSG. Here is a way you can test, try doing(or looking on youtube for a clear video) of Kakashi’s double lightning blade finisher in UNSG and compare it to the version from UNS1(its the exact same move but the graphical fidelity is much much lower in UNSG, and they try to hide this by making the sequences faster).

        • Ehh no, it’s definitely exactly the same cept for the fact that they sped it up. And the cinematics on the NHA series only look “better” because they are on a more epic scale and are….-cinematics-, they aren’t actually more graphically impressive than anything in uns-uns3.

          To break it down, yes I understand stuff like shodai’s ougi looks epic as hell with that nuclear tree explosion, but that isn’t actually more -graphically- intensive than anything in the ps3 games; CC2 decided to get rid of the super long ougi’s in favour of stuff that doesn’t disrupt gameplay that much. Ever since nha3 they started making them shorter and shorter till what we have now since uns2, but that doesn’t actually make them look worse.

    •  if it all turns out ok, this game might be my new DBZ game. And trust me i train so much my dbz disc almost are transparents so fighting me will not be easy >=P

  • KrazyBean

    This looks frickin’ amazing! I skipped Generations, but I’m not skipping this…hell no, day one buy!

    • Sardorim

       Hated Generations, it felt off. This feels more my place.

  • Pain12

    i hope the story line 4 this game is from the manga and not the anime that way we will have way more characters and boss battle and like if u like the free run in this like naruto ultimate ninja storm1 not like storm 2 or generations

  • I am so buying this even though there seem to be mmo features add to it, all i need now is a new ps3 <_< freaking LYOD
