Shisui Uchiha Joins Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution

By Ishaan . April 2, 2014 . 9:30am

Shisui Uchiha is joining the playable roster of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution, Japan’s Shonen Jump magazine has announced. (Thanks, kazu4281)


In the Naruto saga, Shisui was the best friend of Uchiha Itachi, and like Itachi, held the “Mangekyo Sharingan” ability. Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution will tell the story of Shisui’s past.


Additionally, the game has a release window now. Namco Bandai will release Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution this Fall in Japan.

  • D. Collins

    Wow I was not expecting that. Cool!

  • Kaihedgie

    Really didn’t see that one comin’

  • subsamuel01

    Was not expecting this at all, now I’m hyped about the game again. I’m curious who they’ill add next.

  • Minos

    Shisui… one of the worst “Walking Plot Devices” I have seen on a Manga.

    He can’t have the Mangekyo by the way, at least he shouldn’t.

    • Suzaku

      But he did. His power was Koto Amatsukami. This game is going into the backstories of all the Akatsuki members, and Shisui is a major part of Itachi’s.

  • Nanaki

    This game looks promising in new ways.
    Anyone else stumped after reading the new chapter?

    • roydgriffin

      Upvote for Nanaki! :3

    • tylerc23

      I’m not stumped at all, in fact I knew this was going to be where it led for a very long time now.
      Can I help?

  • Really?

  • I want to get this but… ugh… I know after a couple of months they’ll probably release and enhanced version or announce a new game T_T

  • Kuhile Brodeur

    I think it’s cool that they’re adding characters like him. So maybe they’ll return characters that people actually care about that haven’t been playable in awhile?

  • Weird Al Yankovic

    Great. But if Anko is still not playable then this’ll be ridiculous.

    • Veedot

      Well if Kishi forgot Anko existed I don’t see why the games can’t

  • Herok♞

    Wow with one character this game has gone from pass to having my interest.

  • WolfDuo

    This is just stupid. Yes, his a important part of the story, but his not gameplayer worthy. I mean his had no screen time… I don’t see the need to add characters what have no place being added.

    • Prinnydoom

      Lars Alexandersson had no relevance to the story either wanna complain about him to. Oh and naruto had a goku costume. Heaven forfend that these two who are completely unrelated to either franchise should be allowed into those games, but when a rather significant character to Itachi’s story shows up suddenly its stupid.

      Seriously -_- Maybe this is Shisui’s time in the spotlight since he didn’t get enough “Screen time”

      • WolfDuo

        The diffrence between Shisui and Lars is that, Lars was added in the game since bamco has created the game. It was a prommotional way of getting people intrested in other namco games while playing Naruto.
        Shisui on the other hand has had no screentime in the manga or anime and is just about seen in flashbacks..His promotional value doesn’t compare to Lars.. And in any case with all new characters, hell be of pretty low intrest.

        • The Watcher

          Come talk to me once Zetsu and Anko become playable characters. Also you are taking this Game… too seriously. Come on now even Hanabi Hyuuga is a playable character in NUN3 and her relevance to the story didn’t matter. Just a big Clustercluck of characters for fun man.

          • British_Otaku

            Anko was playable for multiple Clash of Ninja games and pretty fun, but yeah, I don’t think Zetsu has a playable role even in the most obscure DS Naruto games shovelware.

            WolfDuo’s point is probably that Shisui Uchiha seems to be hyped only slightly more than Sasuke’s dad… >_> And given how long we have known about him and that CC2 haven’t been “that” good at serving up premium roast- rosters… It is pretty surprising that someone who has no context for fighting style outside of being killed by someone notable and being in a notable clan and who has gone forgotten for ages is now in.

          • Hanabi hyuuga nobody gives a fu… about hanabi zetsu and anko ok but hanabi

        • low interest pffff ok

    • Dude stop complaining shisui past will be revealed and of course we will see tech

  • The Watcher

    Talk about Ironic, i just finished watching episode 211. lol

    • StaticDestroyer

      that’s coincidence, not irony.

  • subsamuel01

    All the edo kages gameplay videos:

  • Prinnydoom

    Interesting. Shisui kinda got overlooked and I always wanted to see what he would be like in combat….finally get to see how itachi and him gained Mangekyo.

  • MaskedHero99

    Hes cool but this games sucks…maybe if they had real teams of 3 per match. ..I would match the show better

    • Zero_Destiny

      Alright, warned. Let’s move on, and stop writing derogatory messages on every article related to this game. Not liking it and actually expressing why is fine, but we don’t need to see the same message pasted in pretty much every article. Think before you act.

    • sucks lol

  • Super hype ^^

  • BeatTheGG

    ….Shisui Uchiha? Umm…. okay that I wasn’t expecting. I won’t complain about it either cause it could be cool but this is a little odd. I remember during the whole Akatsuki origins topic thing I brought up being interested in seeing Yahiko himself be playable for once (and thus completing the trio) but someone got on my case about the idea being bad because he didn’t feel he was important enough. Now keep in mind Yahiko’s legacy shaped everything that Nagato is. Everything that he stood for made Nagato into the man that became Pain and for a long while Yahiko’s face was the face of akatsuki.

    Is it still crazy to want to see him when we’ve got people like Shisui making the roster now?

  • bushin

    Just give me a young Hiruzen Sarutobi with Monkey King: Emma and I’ll be happy, I don’t care if it has no relevance to the story etc. Would be so hype for me personally!

  • Vash bane

    hm I actually forgot about him …. that’s what I get for speed blitzing.
