Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is Namco Bandai Games and CyberConnect2′s fourth entry in the Storm series. It will be available for the Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 in Japan, North America, and Europe sometime Spring 2013. It will begin with the incident with the Nine Tailed Fox from 16 years ago, continue on to the Five Kage Arc, and go up to the Shinobi War, covering latest episode of Naruto Shippuden before the game’s release.
Game came out last week, was wondering if anyone else was playing it? Loving the Jin's~
Still playing through Story Mode, but an awesome game so far. Only complaint I have is that it lags some when there's more than 3 people in the battle at a time (supports!)
At WonderCon in March, CyberConnect2 CEO and President Hiroshi Matsuyama revealed Pirate and Cowboy costumes for Naruto. Today, Namco Bandai Games has released those two pieces of downloadable content (DLC) along with five other costumes – Matador Naruto, Gondolier Naruto, Kimono Naruto, Lederhosen Naruto, and Napoleon Sasuke. If you’ve noticed, yes, these have somewhat of an international flavor to them.
A Matador is a bullfighter in Spanish-speaking countries. A Gondolier is a person who steers a boat, like the one seen in Venice, Italy. Kimono is obviously clothing worn in Japan. Lederhosen is a type of clothing often seen in Germany. Lastly, Nepolean is a former French military and political leader.
Note: Currently these are released on Europe’s Xbox Marketplace, with PlayStation Network coming tomorrow. North America will get it both for Xbox 360 and PS3 later today. The price is $2.99 in the USA, so it won’t be free.
Anyways, check out video of all the characters in their new downloadable costumes thanks to Saiyan Island’s HystericalGamez!
YOSH! A brand new scan from Shonen Jump came out today showing what could possibly be a story mode expansion DLC (Downloadable Content) of Sage Kabuto vs Edo Itachi and Sasuke. Just to be clear, it’s not confirmed if there will be a story mode expansion, but Sage Kabuto will be making an appearance in some shape or form via DLC.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is Namco Bandai Games and CyberConnect2′s fourth entry in the Storm series.

The story for the game will begin with the Nine Tailed Fox incident from 16 years ago, continue on to the Five Kage Arc, and go up to the Shinobi War, covering the latest episodes of Naruto Shippuden as they air in Japan.
Ah, so instead of making characters DLC, they release a whole other game. lmfao... at least they're offering it as DLC for people with the game already.
Pretty cool they're moving it to PC though~

Yosh! A new interview with Daisuke Komoto, Producer of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst, has revealed some rather troubling information! You may read the full interview below, it contains information about the PC release of Full Burst, as well as CyberConnect2′s goals for Full Burst, and whether or not you will be able to play the game with your keyboard and mouse!
Interviewer: I know my readers would want me to ask about the Edo Tensei kage. Will they be playable in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst?
Daisuke Komoto, Producer: We will not have Edo Tensei kage playable in Full Burst.
Interviewer: Why not?
Daisuke: [Laughs] Instead of the Edo Tensei characters, we wanted to focus on making a new character for Full Burst, Sage Mode Kabuto.
Interviewer: What is Sage Mode Kabuto like as a character?
Daisuke: We added a new storyline into the game for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst, which is Kabuto vs. Itachi and Sasuke. This battle was in the original series and we are going to bring that storyline into Full Burst. Do you remember the Sound Four? Kabuto is hiding those characters inside of him. Exactly what you see in the manga are the special attacks Kabuto will be able to use in Full Burst. Also, he has the power and abilities of Orochimaru, so he can attack using snakes.
Interviewer: This is the first Ultimate Ninja game for PC. Was it difficult to port it?
Daisuke: We have never brought a Naruto game to PC before this. The Ultimate Ninja Storm series requires high spec PCs since the game has high quality graphics. It has been very challenging to port the Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm series to PC.
Interviewer: How will PC gamers be able to play it?
Daisuke: Maybe through a PC connected gamepad.
Interviewer: What if they don’t have a gamepad? Like can you use a keyboard and mouse?
Daisuke: I don’t think so, but the game is still under development and we will do our best.
Interviewer: I saw the comparison screenshots and it looks like CyberConnect2 spent quite a bit of time refining the graphics. Usually for enhanced games, we just get rebalancing and extra characters. Why did the team spend more time polishing the game visually for Full Burst?
Daisuke: The development team really wanted to spend more time on the visuals and graphics beautiful, but from a business perspective we have a release date for Ultimate Ninja Storm 3. Because of that, there are things we could complete and things we couldn’t complete during the development time. We wanted to bring all of the elements of what we as the development team wanted to do for Full Burst. This is our vision so we call this part the “Director’s Cut.”
Interviewer: Will there be anymore downloadable characters or content specifically for Full Burst?
Daisuke: If you own Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, you can get Full Burst as DLC. At the moment, we don’t have plans to have additional DLC characters or content for Full Burst.
