Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Has A Little Bit Of Dragon Ball In It

By Spencer . October 16, 2012 . 2:41pm

Namco Bandai announced a Dragon Ball crossover costume for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3. Get the game at launch and you’ll get a Goku costume DLC code for Naruto as a bonus.

This is the first Dragon Ball and Naruto crossover for North America, but Goku and Naruto clashed in Japan-only games like Jump Ultimate Stars and Battle Stadium D.O.N.


Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 will have plenty of other characters to fight like the Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist and in this game fights aren’t always one on one. Zabuza returns with Haku too in one Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3’s boss battles.

     I say it doesn’t have enough dragon ball!

  • Zonic505

    As much as I don’t care for the series nor the game, I find this to be a really neat bonus. I would really like to see more cross-cameos costumes like this happen, either in manga/anime-based games or costumes from characters from other games (like how Phoenix Wright in UMvC3 had colors based on other Ace Attorney characters & characters from Ghost Trick).

  • Rick R

    Considering his orange and blue outfit is inspired by Goku, Sasuke’s white and blue by Vegeta, as well as a lot of pre time skip material (Cursed seal=Majin M) this makes sense.

  • ZEROthefirst

    Not a fan of Naruto in general. I liked the Clash of Ninja series but that’s appearantly gone, and I don’t feel like playing UNS which almost anyone can win by spamming the same button repeatedly. Before you say anything yes I have played these game from UN1 on the PS2 to UNS2 for the PS3/360, and I never found anything great about the series except it’s flashy and that’s pretty much it in my opinion.

    • sd28

      so basically you don’t like the game or the series and though it was necessary to tell a bunch of people who most likely are interested in the series and game about it in a article that you could easily have ignored.

      • Asura

        I think any post that praises the GNT (Clash) series is worth it.
        Though GNT4 is really the only AMAZING one, with the majority being bad, Rev3 being the second best.

        • IsaacGravity

          GNT4 was great on the overall polish of characters and multi-play (where the game really shined) but I’ll always tip my hat to GNT2 for the fun story mode, mini games and being all around great experience be it with friends or alone.

          GNT2 really sung when it came to remembering the single player aspect of things. Still my personal favorite.

        • ZEROthefirst

          If you’re a woman I love you. If you’re a guy I love you in a non-sexual way.

        • sd28

          i agree the 4th was the best then they got lazy or complacent as the lack of effort between games became more apparent though i will admit to playing and enjoying special more than the rest as i liked the changes it made 

      • ZEROthefirst

        So basically you don’t like my comment or the way I worded it and thought it was necessary to tell me, who is most likely not interested in the series, and game about it in the article that I could have easily ignored.

      • Agreed. I just love when people bring their negativity to a topic that they don’t like.

        • ZEROthefirst

          What can I say, but welcome to the real world.

    • xAKUM3TSUx

      I will agree. I like Naruto, but i stopped enjoying the NS series after the first (played all the others). I can give em 5 stars for it looking insanely true to the naruto style of looks. The attacks are very precisely made and all look very good. In all honesty– in my opinion, fights tend to get very repetitive and boring… but i guess from what i see the series has done very well so i’m assuming people can look past it, people just aren’t as demanding or it’s just me…i think it’s the 3rd though

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Goku is way to overpowered so he gave Naruto his GI for a huge boost of power XD

    • OatMatadoQuatro

      Everybody in the show is kind of overpowered. In the very first martial arts tournament Roshi destroys the moon! …how did they survive without the moon?

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        Not really sure….. lol

      • xAKUM3TSUx

        Dragonballs of course lolz

      • Leon_Tekashi

        There’s no such thing as physics in Dragon Ball!

      • DemonKingAsura

         This is actually considered a Major outlier compared to Piccolo blowing up the moon in Early Dragonball Z, because until then, no ther character came close to even showing the possibility of blowing up a moon.

        Thus, it’s an outlier.

  • Shadowman

    I gotta say he looks really good in that costume.

  • Evan Groman

    edit: spoiler alert I guess

    Do we know if Edo Tensei Madara is in yet?

    they might throw in a surprise and give us maskless Obito as an alternate outfit. Well, fair enough, that’s just asking for too much…

    • Herok♞

       it will cover up to the current anime episode in march so Madara should be in it unless they go full filler mode again.

      • OatMatadoQuatro

        When Ultimate Ninja 3 was released CyberConnect2 added the Fourth Hokage as a playable character for the first time ever in games even though he had yet to debut in the anime. The most obvious thing was that he lacked a voice actor. I wish they did the same with Madara.

      • Pain12

         naruto is my faverout anime but them fillers get on my nervous bleach fillers much better

        • Herok♞

           The thing is some of the Naruto Fillers are pretty nice since they show people who never would get screen time.

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    I would have preferred Ichigo’s shinigami outfit over Goku’s uniform. It looks cooler in my opinion.

    •  That one would be better fitting for Sasuke imo o.o

    • Bleach is no where near as popular as Dragon Ball. Not that either touches One Piece…

      • OatMatadoQuatro

        But I talked about costumes, not popularity… When did I mention One Piece?

        • why exactly did you think it’s a dragon ball costume anyway? Because dragon ball is popular. Bleach isn’t as popular.

          • OatMatadoQuatro

            But I don’t care about popularity. I care about what costumes I think would look better.

      • Domii

        Dragon Ball Z still remains the most popular anime to ever come out of Japan. It’s so popular world wide that in my country, kids with incredibly limited resources (poverty) are Dragon ball fanatics. 

  • Domii

    My favorite anime as a kid and my favorite anime as an adult collaborate? This is awesome.

  • Reiko_Chan

    Im surprised it took them this long.

  • SLick123456789111

    Looks better on D. Luffy imo.
    (Deservedly so.)

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      it does 

  • Asukami

    “Goruto used Rasenha! Now he’s charging his cha-ki!” .. I’m gonna annoy the heck out of my friends with cheesy lines like that. >:3

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    I think I’m repeating myself but how about adding this one as a guest, CyberConnect? You created him so there would be no problems.

    • Hiro Oozora

       This could be the easiest thing now since Haseo already has a Storm like moveset from .hack//Versus (japan only game). Too bad it seems Namco America don’t care about .hack.

  • PLEASE HAVE CO-OP (playing with a partner as opposed to against a partner)!

  • Aoshi00

    Nice DLC, kame outfit looks nice on Naruto.. Actually Naruto has been looking more and more like a super saiyan w/ his sennin and kyuubi modes right, w/ all the electricity surrounding him.. I’m very behind on the manga though, been buying all the new issues up until vol. 62 now, but I stopped reading after the Pain fight, I’m pretty lost on all the Ninkai Taisen, new Naruto transformations now, and all the dead chars resurrecting *.*;…

    • OatMatadoQuatro

      He kind of reminds me more to the Human Torch with all the flames coloring his body.

    • sd28

      hopefully we see the return of the super spirit bomb Rasengan as his ougi

  • SonicRulez

    Naruto looks VERY in place in Goku’s garb.  I definitely want to pre-order this now.

  • Hinataharem


  • Tom_Phoenix

    “Kaaaaaameeeeeee…….haaaaa…..meeeeeee….I mean, uh, Rasengan!”

  • Ace

    Saw the reveal while I was at Comic-Con and I was just like “WAT”. 

  • For some reason…the kameryuu gear looks good on Naruto.This looks like an outfit a ninja could use (beside the huge boots, that is).

  • Shogunreaper

    Was already pre-ordering this for the game itself, i don’t need some useless costume tbh

  • Just Tim

    Where’s the scouter at? D:

  • Clifford Pierre Louis

    blond hair blue eyes, in the dbz universe Naruto is a super saiyan, that’s why this doesn’t look so out of place.

  • KrazyBean

    Son Naruto! =)

    …Where’s Sasuke’s Vegeta costume?!

  • Pain12

    i heard that goku’s is pissed off he was going to fight broly and couldnt find his clothes
