    Getting this, day one!

      • Anime10121

        I’m just wandering how much the DLC will cost for us who already have Storm, but then again, depending upon boxart, and how much the full disc costs, I may just end up buying the disc version simply to save room on my hard drive!

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    Ishaan you forgot the word Burst in the title! Are you sleepy and tired? :D

    • fyi1191

      Full Burst.

    • Fixed, thanks!

      • MrSirFeatherFang

        well, I am wrong and was corrected below. It’s Full Burst.
        sorry about that :(

  • DesmaX

    PC, cool!

    I’ll get this on a sweet deal on Steam then

    • fyi1191

      Indeed, with mods that is.

      • Ignas

        *COUGH* nude mods *COUGH*

  • JMaster3000

    I almost shit my pants when i saw it coming for PC.

  • Spirit Macardi

    That’s great and all, but you still can’t play as The Rower or the Dangerous Box!

    • There’s no way they would add The Rower, it’ll be to damn OVERPOWERED!

  • J_Joestar

    so soon? shouldn’t they just wait til the manga is over (or at least the current plot thread if it isn’t ending yet)?

    • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

      It depends on how much content the manga has left. If it is too much they’ll just release a Storm 4.

      • J_Joestar

        well with how the manga is at currently, it looks like the end is within sight (unless Kishi has additional new story arcs planned). At the very least, finishing up the current arc shouldn’t be enough material for a whole 4th game of it’s own.

  • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

    And the anime still didn’t even get to the final Edo Tensei.

  • British_Otaku

    Both some great news and some terrible news… I like the idea of supporting the PC but not so much that even anime fighters are going the way of “GOTY editions” which profit partially on how the DLC costumes were distributed prior on top of adding small additions (yes touching up on old cutscenes, adding a small arc and a single character is small).

    If I hear any of NB’s anime licenses will have additional content, I’ll hold off for half a year till I buy it.

  • Aoshi00

    argh.. just bought it from Best Buy the other day for $25.. always so soon for a better ver like DoA5 Ultimate.. oh well..

  • Pfantzypantz

    PC Heckles yesss

  • andref

    As much as I want to get this, I’m dreading having to go through all the story content again

    • Herok♞

      Well they have separate download version for people with the game already

  • Jude

    Please add jutsuclash!

    • British_Otaku

      Jutsu clash, running on walls, ultimate impact and fourth combo… The mechanics from previous games in the same series which would be cool… >_>

    • deadMastershiro

      I know what you mean. I miss jutsuclash.

  • juma086

    Oh sweet Jesus tap-dancing Christ that was epic.

    And yet… people will still find something to complain about…

    • Kaihedgie

      Except it’s the same thing they’ve been whining about before. Hoping they don’t put them in there

  • Magnumsally

    dammit I just bought it

  • Kaihedgie

    Oh great, it’s back to whining about insignificant Edo characters again x:

    • Guest

      Wait people still play this game? LMAO!

      • Kaihedgie

        Yes, because people happen enjoy playing this game. Is there a problem?

        • Guest

          The “whining of insignificant edo characters” made me quit playing this.

  • Freud_Hater

    …So what about people that have bought NUNS3? I’m not gonna buy it again, so will this be available as a DLC download too? Oo

    • Kaihedgie

      It’s DLC

      • Freud_Hater

        Okay! That’s cool, then ^_^

      • TheExile285

        Oh thank god. Was about to get pissed.

  • Wait so this isn’t a patch?

    • Anime10121

      Its being released as DLC for the original AND as a full retail release.

  • Kalis Konig

    Tried to warn my friends not to buy Storm 3 on release. It felt like they purposely left it incomplete/ just rushed it out to meet the deadline to me.

  • FFmax

    Oh wow, so glad I didn’t buy this yet.

  • Jesse Torres

    How about changing the fighting mechanics, because it sucked. Generations was better fighting wise. How about bringing back the left stick combo and making the combos longer. That would make me buy the whole game again. This is just another way of cc2 getting more money. AGAIN BRING BACK THE LEFT STICK COMBO AND MAKE THE COMBOS LONGER.

  • Guest

    …well this makes my trade in of UNS3 yesterday much more meaningful haha! XD

  • Day one Steam buy for me. Can’t wait for 60fps at true 1080p! Yes!

  • Ni

    The mods are going to be delicious

  • Jesse Torres

    bring back the fighting mechanics from generations and i will buy the WHOLE game again. How about you bring the other edo Kages, and the rest of the characters that should have been in the game since the beginning of the series.

  • Masa

    Is it just me or has a lot of games which are usually only on console been coming to the pc a lot more recently, anyway this is great news. :)

  • Crimson_Cloud

    Glad for the PC users, but honestly I hate these enhanced editions. It’s a slap in the face who bought the original and DLCs. But it can’t be helped eh…


    Ahem… it looks good.

  • edomon007

    i wonder if we get UN3 Full Burst @ a reduced price of $39.99 to $49.99?

  • Weird Al Yankovic

    PC, nice. I’m sure there’ll be a really good pre-order discount somewhere too. No excuse for Naruto and PC fans not to BUY (not pirate) this. Also lets publishers know that we want more stuff like this on PC.

  • Guest

    well my satisfaction from skiping generations is gone. regardless the quality of the cinematics is as brilliant as ever. i’m actually tempted to buy this again.

  • Altin

    Are they using the same fonts that PewDiePie uses? Sheesh.

  • Setsuna ♥

    I thought of Gundam Extreme Vs. expansion Full Boost when I saw Full Burst. Why is an already anual game coming out with an expansion ?!

  • DarthSithZero

    First Castlevania Lords of Shadows, then MK, then Naruto. More games for my PC please

  • Göran Isacson

    … Cowboy, Gondolier, Matador, Lederhosen, Samurai, Bancho, pirate and I don’t even know what that last one is. Or how these outfits are connected to Narutos character.

    And too strong is right, ha ha Kabuto had major power overload there in his fight. Sage powers, Orochimaru powers, Sound Five powers, Sasuke team powers, POWER POWER POWERS etc. Think he may be the most unbalanced guy we’ve seen so far.

    • Chaheezor

      The DLC costumes are to do with Shounen Jump covers. They’ve had theme’s here and there and every artist in Jump participate.

      • Göran Isacson

        Aaah, that explains a bit more. Jump covers can have some… pretty funky outfit choices, they can.

  • Otoya

    HAHAHA, finish this 2 weeks ago and now announce this? HAHA, best time ever. Who cares?!!! Just gonna buy it.

  • monkey king

    Didn’t even notice this news, wow glad I didn’t pick up uns3 then, especially since this one is coming to PC~

  • I’m glad I didn’t bought this.
