Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Revolution Coming To Europe & US In 2014

By Ishaan . December 2, 2013 . 3:30am

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution is in development for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and Namco Bandai have already confirmed the game for a 2014 release in Europe. Like previous Ultimate Ninja fighters, this one is being developed by CyberConnect2.


Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution will feature a roster of 100 playable characters, and one of these will include a brand new character designed by Naruto author Masashi Kishimoto for the game.


Additionally, Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution will allow for “Combination Ultimate Jutsu” attacks. You can catch a glimpse of these in the screenshots below.


Update: Namco Bandai confirmed they will release Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution in North America too.


  • Not this time, CC2. You always hype me up with new characters, modes, visuals and mechanics, only for me to realize not much changed and there’s more problems and less fixed from last game…

    In other words, after all the flair, I realize there isn’t much lasting appeal. Maybe it’s just me being really disappointed in Storm 3.

    • Zangetsu777

      I wish CC2 would bring back the “.Hack” games. I know its off topic but the “.Hack” games were kickass

      • Hinataharem

        Apparently a new one is in the air

    • Crimson_Cloud

      Storm series is something that looks and plays well but it doesn’t have an everlasting appeal. The gameplay sinks down after a while. The boss battles and story mode is it’s strongest point for me. and honestly I don’t see myself picking anymore games. IF they wanted to make another fighter, they could have made Bleach or Fairy Tail game with Storm mechanics. But eh…

    • Koibito888

      See I don’t understand all the disappointment with Storm 3. I still play it and find enjoyment from it (save the past week I’ve been playing Saint Seiya Brave Soldiers), the fights are so incredibly perfect and replicate just what fighting is like in the series and the visuals and those ultimates just give me chills each time, and Naruto is nowhere near any sort of top likes in my lists of manga, but this game is what anime games should be like for real and as long as they can keep making it better each time, I’m excited to see it continue.

      • Syn

        Did you ever play Shippuden Acell on the ps2?? What makes most people unhappy about the generation games is the sheer amount of stuff removed from the earlier versions of the games(some of which where in the first generations game but removed from 2 onwards), the story mode is great, but the lack of diverse jutsus for individual characters, different level ougi’s, justu clashes, the removal of partnership ougi’s, awakening ougi’s, wall running and so much more that was found on the older ps2, its not hard to see.why

        • Koibito888

          But see that’s a good thing. In the old games, the only thing that mattered was the ultimate jutsus, everything else was just not a part of the cool parts of the game. Once Storm started, we had real gameplay that was not only fast and fluid, but perfectly replicated how fighting happens in Naruto which is the first job of an anime action game: to replicate the experience of the anime to a tee.

          Plus what we lost in extra ultimates and awakened ultimates, we gained in amazing combos and extremely powerful awakenings that are so epic we don’t need an ultimate for them. We have a game that has highly epic combos who’s fluidity and power and cinematic endings are just as awesome as an ultimate move, jutsu that are actually more diverse than anything we got in the PS2 games so I honestly don’t know what you’re talking about there, awakenings that actually feel like the beastly forms of the characters, beautiful graphics, and a really epic fighter. We got a lot more from the Storm games than what we lost from later PS2 ultimate ninja games, that’s for sure.

          And besides, some of that stuff we either don’t need or are even getting back like with Partnership Ultimates with this game. Wall running was just lame so lets not even pretend that was any sort of a cool feature, good riddance to that. The only thing we lost that was awesome and hasn’t been made up for is Jutsu Clashes. Everything else we’ve lost is better off now in Storm with what we have now instead. Plus even that said, Jutsu Clashes were few and far between with not that many Jutsu that can actually clash. Now that there are more characters it’d be even further between so really it became a feature that was good for only a couple characters which is probably why they took it out.

          So short answer: Yes I did play the Ultimate Ninja games on the PS2 and yes, it is hard to see why all the disappointment when these games are far superior.

          • protofox

            In the old games each character had over 8 combos and videos on youtube showed how to cancel those to make even longer ones. Including seups for speicals. Storm 3 each person had 4 combos at the most..if that. And the roster is in NO way balanced like it was with the ps2 games. The game is flashy with long limited combos and speicals. In the ps2 games i had to use differrnt combos to win. In storm i can literaly button mash the attack button with can els and never use a directional button to change the combo and still win. Reguardless of graphics and fluild animations the game is. It is now far more shallow then ever snice appearance and speical features seem to sell more to the naruto fan base than a more balanced and compitive game.

          • Koibito888

            But all the combos in the PS2 games sucked. I would take two of Storms epically cinematic combos over 20 of Ultimate Ninja’s lame, mean-nothing combos. First off you can combo cancel and chain in Storm so same thing really.

            As for move number we have more than that, for most characters we have 4 combos, an air combo, a tilt move, a special move, 4 combos for awakened state for the half that get awakened combo changes, two shoulder button awakened moves, grab move, and an ultimate. 15 moves at most that are all epic with a variety of move numbers on characters instead of all characters having the same amount of bland combos.

            See that’s just it. Seriously competitive scene does not make a game good. I can compete with my friends and online just as much as any other game and have fun with it. Yeah you can mash one button if that’s all you do but meet a better player and they’ll still beat you. The point is that it’s easy to pick up and a challenge to master unlike known competitive games that are made to be hard to do both. If you like that, cool, but that doesn’t make this game bad or anything negative.

            The point of an anime game is first to replicate the experience of the series, to pull you into it and make you feel like you’re conducting a battle in the manga. The fluidity and visuals are key to that and are much more beautiful than JUST a competitive game. If you want a competitive game go play one of those arcade fighters with no story where the characters matter little. This is a game for those who want to experience the series it’s from and or play a game that pulls you into an immersive battle system and really that’s all it needs to be. I can say those competitive fighters are just as shallow on story and immersiveness which is true, but it doesn’t make those games bad. This game isn’t shallow on gameplay, it just does it a different way that doesn’t cater to the ubercompetitive scene and in my opinion that’s awesome. More games should exist like that.

  • Zangetsu777

    What about North America………..

    • Suriel Cruz

      Soon my friend, soon! ^ ^

    • Koibito888

      Pretty sure it’s been confirmed by now for U.S.

  • Suriel Cruz

    The visuals alone speak in ‘EPIC’ language.

    Hopefully we’ll see the true identity of Tobi in this installment and the 1st Hokage ‘Sage Art: Wood Release: True Several Thousand Hands’ as a Hi-Ougi. “DAMN!!!” My expectations for this one are very high… visually, I mean, can you imaging a Combination Ultimate Jutsu between the 1st & 2nd Hokages?! = EPIC!

    • Syn

      That is simply amazing to imagine, but I am going to kill this little pice of hope growing in me before it goes out of control, it seems Ultimate partnership ougi’s are a thing of the ps2 era….Would be amazing if something like that popped up though.

      • Koibito888

        What do you mean a thing of the past? They’ve been confirmed for this game. Are you saying that you don’t think they really will be in the game or you don’t think they’ll be good or what?

        • Syn

          Remember what they said about team finishers…and what we got in the end, its hard to get your hopes up after so much you know.

          • Koibito888

            They didn’t say much about team finishers actually. They just mentioned the feature last time while this time around they’ve gone and announced the feature while giving us screenshots that fit the context of that idea. Plus, team finishers was a cool function so why doubt a new function?

            Also why would they announce a new function if it was going to be the same thing as team ultimates. There is literally no reason to doubt the awesomeness of this feature.

  • Flamboyant Ass Nigga

    I just peed out of excitement a lil.

  • James Williams

    I dunno, after how “off” 3 storm 3 was im actually kind of hesitant to get this.

    • Koibito888

      Well it depends, personally I am in love with 3 and see no way that it’s off, BUT putting aside my biased, this game seems more like a better generations, and as much crap as generations gets, it was an amazing game since it perfected the gameplay of 2. Seeing as this game has so much foundation under it and the first knowledge we have of this game is new features, I could see this game taking the gameplay and further upping it. That may just be me.

  • Tonton Ramos

    Oh no here comes the “Will there be Edo Kage” comments.

    • British_Otaku

      I’m still waiting for the Sound Four till I buy a Storm game. >_>
      If I’m going to play a fanservice game, I may as well have characters I enjoyed.

      • FlyingPony

        Edo Kage have pretty sweet jutsu.. Especially the Mist Kage, man he is original and good. 1st Hokage is badass too.

        • British_Otaku

          The Mizukage of that era was pretty awesome yes, perhaps even my favourite Kage of the bunch. Still, Storm is too shallow for me to appreciate the character I do like a lot.

          Since, the Edo Kage are all shoe-ins and the Sound Four might just be part of Dragon Kabuto’s moveset, I’m waiting for them.

          • karasuKumo

            They are aiming for a lot of weakly made characters as opposed to a few amazingly done ones. CC2 used to be able to do both in the PS2 days but then again there were less characters to make back then haha.

            This will probably be another Generations type game where they strip even more off of the characters in order to get 100 in. I want CC2 to prove me wrong.

          • British_Otaku

            I’m pretty sure they had just as many characters or more back in the later Ultimate Ninja/Portable games.

            CC2 were already all about style, back then and now with HD budgets or just slacking, it is the only thing they can do.

          • Koibito888

            I mean you talk like Generations was a bad thing. Things weren’t really taken from characters and the point of Generations was to perfect the gameplay to higher levels which it most certainly did.

          • karasuKumo

            This is true but did it need an entirely new game to do that? The same goes for the new content within Full Burst. Storm 3 would have felt more content rich if they skipped Generations and used that content in Storm 3.

            It just leaves me with the impression that after Storm 2’s success they’ve been pressured to release as many games as possible to generate money. Even if that means each game has mild changes.

          • Koibito888

            To answer your first question: Yes. Deadlines are a thing and if they went straight to 3, either the story, gameplay, or characters would have taken a huge hit, that’s why there was barely any story focus in Generations. It takes time and money to make the parts of the game and the more time and money spent on one thing is less time and money spent on another, the reason sequels get better is that they have the foundation they build over the games. So yeah, Generations was a necessity.

            Full burst wasn’t anything though. It was good DLC so why should there even be something like “why was it necessary”? It was cool and it was DLC that those who didn’t buy the game could get. It was a good idea, nothing wrong with that.

            I mean for real these games get a huge difference each game. The advancement from Storm 1-2 was indescribable, 2-Generations was amazing as explained before, Generations-3 was really good, we got great story, more characters, tweaked gameplay, is there really any reason to believe that we won’t get a huge difference in gameplay mechanics and how much better this replicates the fighting in the series this time around? The games really do advance each time, they are handled with care, I mean is there really any question when you consider how much of a Naruto fanboy the head guy at Namco is? This game is probably going to be awesome, the history of this series proves that more than well enough.

          • karasuKumo

            They got it right with the progression between Storm and Storm 2, which like you said was indescribable. That’s the level of progression that I want to see with each new installment. I appreciate that there are significant changes but I’d rather that they released a game every two-three years that was on Storm 2’s scale instead of them pumping out games while the demand is high.

            What I mean is I want it to be worth something if I bought the game. You can get all the benefits of Generations from Storm 3, and all the benefits of Storm 3 in Full Burst, and now most likely all the benefits of all those previous games in this one.

          • Koibito888

            Yeah, but they can’t always do that. The issue is that they do have to make these games while they’re hot, they gotta keep relevance so deadlines happen and as long as the game does add enough I find it plenty worth it. Storm 2 to Generations was enough for a full game, it really was and like I said, if we didn’t get Generations, 3 would have just been Generations. Full Burst just proves they do want to keep adding more and the amount they’ve added each time has been worth it so this game should be no different.

  • I’m glad I didn’t bought the Ultimate 3 then.

  • DragKudo

    Combo ultimate my ass! That is a story related attack only naruto and sasuke can use, i doubt everyone is going to be able to put the ultimates together.

    • zuuum

      It’s not impossible.
      Naruto ultimate ninja 5 already had “Combo ultimates”, but only a selected few had it like:

      Itachi&Kisame and a few other.^^

      • DragKudo

        I never said its impossible i was referring to the picture. That attack is an actually attack that sasuke and naruto do. Not a combo attack. They are going to just give us the same “combo” ultimates from the past games.

        • Koibito888

          Except it’s not a move they actually do. The combo move they do is Amaterasu and Rasenshuriken, this move is only in the game, made for this game.

    • Koibito888

      Yeah like zuuum said: most likely it’ll be set character duos who can use a team ultimate, that sounds awesome, no need to be a doubter about it.

      • DragKudo

        I know. I said i doubt everyone will be able to do it. The attack in the picture is not a combo ultimate its an attack that sasuke and naruto do together in the story. I know that can probably be a combo ultimate but jugding from the past games and their combo ultimates i doubt they will deliver with this game. Not trying to sound hostile but who gives you the right to tell me no need to be a doubter?

        • Koibito888

          Well first off I wasn’t telling you to not be a doubter as if telling you what to do, I was suggesting that there is no reason, no necessity to be a doubter. It was merely a suggestion that in which case, the evidence is what gives me the reason, not the right, to suggest that.

          Secondly, yeah, you’re right, there’s no way every character will be able to do it. But we don’t know if those 7 screens in question are of the ultimate or not. I mean they don’t even use that attack in the series, the first time Sasuke and Naruto combine a move it’s the Amaterasu and Rasenshuriken so there’s no reason to 100% believe they’ll even combine Rasengan and Chidori in the story mode actually. Plus, they already have ‘team ultimates’ so why would they make a big deal about combo ultimates if it was going to be the same thing as team ultimates? Past games never had combo ultimates so there is no “judging from the past games and their combo ultimates”, that wasn’t a thing in the Storm series yet.

          I mean your reasoning is that they might do this attack in the story but in the series they never do, this is the first game to have ‘combo ultimates’ so they could very well deliver. Not to mention if you take out the supposed combo ultimate screenshots, every screenshot given here is gameplay rather than any cutscene screenshots so while it could be that the shots of this supposed combo ultimate are coincidentally the only story cutscene screens out of a set where the rest is gameplay, it’s more likely that in a set of screens that are all gameplay where they very much announce this new ultimate combo jutsu system, that that combo Chidori X Rasengan IS a combo ultimate rather than only a story scene, and given the cinematic quality of all ultimate attacks, there is no reason to doubt these screens as one when it’s the same screens released with the announcement of team ultimates.

          All I’m saying is that given the evidence and announcements and screens, it all points to those shots being of Naruto and Sasuke’s combo ultimate jutsu, so why is it that you are so sure that it’s story only and are shooting it down so quickly as if the idea is a complete impossibility?

  • David García Abril

    “Additionally, Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution will allow for “Combination Ultimate Jutsu” attacks.”

    I’m calling it right now!

    Naruto and Hinata’s combo will be he giving her the Kyubi chakra cloak, Naruto throwing a Rasen Shuriken and Hinata giving him an extra boost with a punch on his shoulder (Read the manga. It makes sense in context)

    Oh, and it will be a HUGE ship tease.

    • EliteTrainerXeos

      That “Punch” in the manga as you call it, was to fix his dislocated shoulder bone.

    • Koibito888

      I hope we get more than just a couple. I wonder how the system will work, maybe like ‘team ultimates’ in three worked where when you get the meter up you can chakra charge three times but maybe when you do, you hit r1 or l1 for the support you wanna use the move with and it goes off? That’d be cool.

  • Virevolte

    I’m sorry, Naruto-kun. It can’t work between us after all.
    We should split up.

  • Byron Kerrison II

    This is a great single-player game.
    Multiplayer… Please just stop.

    • Koibito888

      Well depends on what you mean, it’s a great local multiplayer in my opinion. Of course if you mean online, that’s just all fighters, fighters are terrible online.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething


    • TheGameTagerZ

      Are you playing a trick on me?

      I need this! CC2 DO IT NOW!

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        I know right…!!!!! KICK STARTER!

        • TheGameTagerZ

          Next you’re going to say….

          “This should at least be DLC”

          • ShawnOtakuSomething

            JoJo X Naruto

  • Interesting…the logo uses the shot from the manga of Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura re meeting during the fight.

    Wonder if the game’s storymode would finish Naruto.

    • zuuum

      I don’t think so.It’s more like Naruto generations probably.Storm 4 will finish the story after the manga and anime end.

      • Koibito888

        Yeah it most likely won’t, the manga wont even be done by the time it comes out probably. So we’ll either get a game that continues a portion of the story or a Generations sequel.

        Which either way will be good. Best case scenario it’s a continuation of Storm 3; but even if it’s not, if it’s pretty much another Generations, that would be awesome. Generations did so much for the gameplay (no matter how much people would rather overlook all the improvements to complain about lack of story and not adding a lot of characters) that it’s hard to go back to 2 after all the great things Generations did. So if this is yet another game that uses the time and money for it on advancing the gameplay and story has to be sacrificed? Then I’ll take that any day.

  • Can’t wait to pick this up. I loved the final fight in Storm 3.

  • karasuKumo

    I already know how this is going to end, and it aint pretty.

  • J_Joestar

    Combination Jutsu huh?

    Naruto & Sasuke: These hands of ours are Glowing Blue!

    Naruto: Their Loud Cry tells us…

    Sasuke: To grasp Happiness!


    Eat that Madara!

    • Byron Kerrison II

      Sakura: The Power of Love Conquers All…!!! Cha!!!!!

  • [S]unjΔy of Equestria

    Does anyone still watch/play/read Naruto?

    • Anko Is Furious (King T.G.P)

      Several people still do.. Myself included.

      • [S]unjΔy of Equestria

        I’m sorry :(

        • Koibito888

          Why? I mean first off watch… Yeah, not as great as reading but even reading despite some flaws it’s still a good series. Despite that, the games have actually been perfect. You can actually enjoy Storm without enjoying the series since… It’s kinda epic.

  • Lloyd Christmas

    In that first screen is the headband jutting out of the side of Naruto’s head?

  • bushin

    Aww man, this will actually be so hype Story wise

  • LightGenx

    So Generations 2?

    • Koibito888

      Who knows, looks like it focuses on story a good bit. But hey, even if it doesn’t is Generations 2 a bad thing? Generations cut back on story and only added a few characters so that they could focus on making the gameplay that much better, which they did. After playing Generations for so long, I went back to Storm 2 and the gameplay was crap in comparison.

  • King Omega 34

    Finally legit team attacks. This has been a long time coming. I have been asking for this to happen since storm 2.

  • Anko Is Furious (King T.G.P)

    Not going to be excited until we get more information on those playable characters.. If they end up just being different outfits or same outfit different jutsu.. I’m sorry but no.. If they aren’t lazy and add characters like Anko playable ~.~.. Hell you can have my money twice! (*Cough* Yes I’m quite the Anko fanboy lol.)

    • Koibito888

      Well Storm has always been good about adding characters.

      • Anko Is Furious (King T.G.P)

        The several character slots taken up by Naruto, Sasuke, Gaara and more beg to disagree.

        • Koibito888

          And each and every installment of Naruto and Sasuke have been interesting to play. In fact, getting the new Naruto and Sasuke of the game is one of the fun little quarks of each game but more importantly the Kages, Kid Kakashi, Obito, pre time skip characters, Zabuza and Haku, new Kabuto, and masked man beg to agree with me which is 13 characters from 2-Generations. 13 is a good jump in characters and that number was up to 17 more for Storm 3. Those are great numbers to be adding characters by.

          Also ‘taken up by them’, the issue here is you’re acting like the Naruto and Sasuke of the game take up the space of other characters that could be in the game, that’s just not really the case. Not having the new Naruto, Sasuke, and the like would not mean the entry of other characters so that’s just incorrect logic.

          • Anko Is Furious (King T.G.P)

            I might be coming off a bit ignorant and forgive me for that but leaving or reusing the same character models just with different abilities or with just a clothing piece added without many more new playable characters to build for a better roster (There is plenty of characters in the Naruto universe that can help build it and its possible seeing as characters like Karin was given an early move-set before she could even show anything in Storm 2 and that most characters that are support only need just a few more moves and they can be considered fully playable ~.~.) isn’t proving that “Storm has always been good about adding characters”. All I see is pure laziness and this is something coming from someone who loves CC2 and all their games regardless of how I feel.. Doesn’t mean I’m going to sugarcoat the truth for them though. Now just imagine removing all the Naruto, Sasuke and Gaara (Since they have the most) reused &/or duplicates.. You don’t really have much of a roster and a perfect example to prove your statement wrong lol. Sure they don’t prevent from adding more but they sure are there as a separate character to make up for the fact they obviously don’t want to.

          • Koibito888

            You’re fine, not coming off as ignorant or anything. Well first off considering that every new version of Naruto and Sasuke they add each game has an entirely different moveset down to the combos so they are very well deserving of being a different character. If you took out every character that was a duplicate, you’re only taking out 8 characters from Storm 3. You really can’t logically say that different incarnations of a character count as duplicates like Kid Naruto vs Timeskip Naruto because they are different models, play differently, and are different characters and are necessary to the game. So only counting ones that are literally the same character like the two Killer Bee options, the two extra Naruto’s and Sasuke’s we have 8 duplicates. The Naruto and Sasuke we get of each set is completely necessary because not only does it keep the main characters relevant and updated but each version does play differently and like I said has an entirely different moveset. That said, not counting those two extra each, we literally only have 4 characters that are duplicates, that’s it, 4 out of a total 80 that one could logically say is an unnecessary duplicate, but at the very least they are still fun to play. These were also only added in Storm 3 so without them 3 added the same amount to Generations as Generations did to 2, 13, which again is a great leap in characters, all of which were necessary and good choices. Oh yeah, 14 counting Sage Mode Kabuto so yeah that too.

            You also can’t count things in the same slot as those don’t count towards roster count so anything added to the same slot of a character is null and void here. So yes, imagine removing all the Naruto’s and Sasuke’s (which they should never do because they play differently enough to warrant a different character) and Gaara’s and duplicates they are taking out 8 characters, 4 if you don’t count the ones that actually need to be in the game. Not such a big number as you’re making it out to be.

            So now I’ve established that they actually do add 13-14 real characters per game which IS a good jump in characters, it’s what any game could do and be respectable. This means that they in fact are good about adding characters as per my previous point. This time they are going to have 100 characters, so 20 more are going to be filled with little chance of many (if any) duplicates, so what is there to not be excited about there?

    • Kane Dragon (alias)

      All for one, and all fanboys for Anko-chan!!!! XD

  • Vash bane


    is that tail beast rasegan? the one from that ova?

  • Cyril Murasakitsuyukusa

    Can’t wait! ^_^ Hopefully Kurenai, Shizune, Sound 4, Chojuro and Kurotsuchi will be playable.

  • Hunts Rattata

    I hope the Combo Ultimates are plentiful. Not like Clash of Ninja Revolution, where there were only 17 unique combinations, and every other pair just got one of the generic combo moves.

  • Koibito888

    I wonder who we’ll be getting in this game. There will be 19 characters being added if no spaces are taken away to compress same characters (like Choji and Gaara) and one of those is this new character being designed for the game.

    That said we’ll probably be getting for sure:
    – New Naruto
    – New Sasuke
    – New Tobi/Obito
    – Newly Designed character

    That’s four there. Now as for what would make the most sense would be the other 6 swordsmen and the edo kage. This gives us 14 characters with room for 5 more.

    If any PTS characters are added it’d be sound 4, maybe Sound 4 with a 5th character of Zetsu? Maybe Zetsu, thunder brothers, two others?

    I won’t speculate any clone characters because honestly the story probably won’t go far enough to get new versions of anyone else and even if it does for like, new Hashirama, he probably wouldn’t be getting a different slot. And who knows, now that characters exist, maybe they’ll compress the Chojis, Killer Bees, and Gaaras into the same slot and we’d be getting more characters since they wouldn’t count towards the slot count anymore.
