Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 was only just recently announced in Japan, but Namco Bandai confirmed the game for a European release as well this morning. The game will be available in Europe in Spring 2013, and you can watch a trailer for it below:

 

 

Developed by CyberConnect 2 like Namco’s other Naruto fighting games, Namco say Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 has the most playable characters in the series’ history and goes back to the very beginning to when Naruto was just a child.

 

“After I tried my hardest to finish the Paris Marathon in April but just couldn’t make it, I feel like I owe something back to this amazing city,” said Hiroshi Matsuyama, President of CyberConnect2 (the announcement took place at the Japan Expo in Paris).

 

“So I’m very excited to be presenting the first ever hands-on of our newest Naruto game at Japan Expo today. It’s the perfect way to say thank you to the people of Paris and Europe for all their support!”
