Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Adds Seven Swordsmen Of The Mist

imageWhen we met with CyberConnect 2 president Hiroshi Matsuyama he said Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 will cover the Shinobi World War storyline.


Kabuto used the Summoning: Impure World Reincarnation technique in this arc to resurrect the Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist. They are all in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, but it is unclear if all of them are playable characters. Screenshots show Haku and Zabuza fighting Kakashi and a group of other Swordsmen ganging up on Rock Lee.


The magazine also shows Naruto dressed in samurai armor, which is one of his "another costumes."


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

  • I don’t even follow this anime or game- and I’m excited about this. It just.. Sounds awesome! 

  • Wow, costumes?! Sounds beastly!

  • By the way, that’s Guy, not Rock Lee lol. If you look closely, you can see the vest.

    • Sam Armistead

      wow do you even follow the anime/manga Lee has had a jacket ever since the start of shippuden. The person on the front is indeed Guy (because of the sleeves, there are no bandages) however if you look behind him you’ll see rock lee.

    Ah yes, the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist, probably the most underwhelming enemies ever. They appeared for all of one chapter, got hyped up as some of the strongest ninjas around, capable of making Kakashi finally fight seriously… then we don’t see them anymore, and since the resurrection technique has been stopped, presumably we’ll never see them again. Talk about an anticlimax.

      Yes, sad but true. I was hoping to see more of them, but never will. I’m sure those who watch the Anime will see more of them though.

    • Göran Isacson

      Oh my God you are so right. Like, I get WHY they didn’t get shown, their fight wouldn’t have advanced the overall plot and I guess that Kishi is trying to finish it as fast as he can… but to have these guys get so hyped up, have their abilities sound so tantalizing, and then NOTHING is just… eugh. I can only hope they’re not just strikers, but actual playable characters in this game.

    Samurai Naruto? What the?! Sasuke would be more suitable for that considering his ronin look.
    Can we just give him a cosplay from another series as another costume? That would be awesome

  • Tails the Foxhound

    I hope that guy with the Sewing Sword is playable, he was awesome looking.

  • Reiko_Chan

    This game is getting better and better by the day.

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    These guys would work pretty well for a hack and slash boss fight considering the fights in the war
