imageCyberConnect2 made all of the Jinchuriki, characters with tailed beasts sealed inside them, playable in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3.


Yugito, Yagura, Roshi, Han, Utaka, and Fu are new for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3. Gaara, Killer B, and Naruto return from previous games.


The news comes from Jump, which also has screenshots of tailed beast battles. You can see Son Goku (the Four-Tails) fighting Isobu (the Three-Tails). Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is slated for release in March 2013 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

    Awesome, I’d like to see how Yugito and the Mizukage play. Will everyone Awaken like Naruto and Bee do, I wonder.

  • Wow, amazing. Looking forward to it.

  • Herok♞

    Sounds great, I wonder what type of story will be in it this time.

    • Suzaku

      The story will cover a large chunk of the Fourth Shinobi World War arc.

  • XYZ_JolteonZ980

    Now if we can have all swordsman of the mist village.

    • samael789

      They’re bosses at least. Not certain about playable status though.

  • Spider-Man


  • British_Otaku

    It’s a great step up for the roster leaving only the current manga antagonists (not many to keep this post spoiler free) and unlikely future antagonists. Then they can go Budokai Tenkaichi on us and add everyone (Seven Swordsmen of the Mist and dozens of miscellaneous characters, especially the supports) like the fanservice game that Ultimate Ninja was and is becoming again.

  • Yuriangels

    yes,yes yesssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss!!!!

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    Great way to make this sequel stand out within the series. Utakata was curiously first introduced in a filler arc when he was captured by Pain and it looked like something Kishimoto collaborated in that considering he had the same abilities in the manga.

  • Shadowman

    With this and MHU3 I’m gonna be busy.

  • Kaihedgie


  • Aisha Lee

    fu playable? take my money already.

  • Hinataharem


  • Christopher Nunes

    So not only do we get to have as the Jinchuriki who are host to the Biju (Tailed Beasts) but we also get to play AS the Biju themselves and fight epic one-on-one Biju battles with them?

    I’m in.

  • KyoyaHibari

    I’m still weary about getting another Storm game, but the inclusion of Yagura and Utakata–along with all the other Jinchuriki for that matter–is a strong selling point.

  • Love it, just hope everything else is enough to warrant out the horrible ring out option…

  • KyoyaHibari

    If they included Mangetsu, Kushimaru and Ameyuri of the 7 Swords, that would be great as well.

  • Reiko_Chan

    This is good news. Hopefully they make some of the Seven Ninja Swordsmen playable. Id love to play as Ringo.

  • Göran Isacson

    … huh. THAT was unexpected. It really looks like this game will put a little more spotlight on characters fans thought would be cool to play as, but which the main story didn’t really have the time or desire to focus on. Guess that makes sense though if this is really going to be the ultimate, end-all be-all game that features absolutely everybody and their mothers. Definitely looking forward to playing Yugito and Roshi, anyway.
