With SimCity and Tomb Raider currently burning up the news wires today it's easy to forget about a certain other game that has also been waiting in the wings to make a big splash on home consoles: Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3. The Namco Bandai fighter has launched for both the Xbox 360 and PS3.
Masashi Kishimoto, author of the NARUTO manga series commented about the game in the press release, saying...
“…NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM 3 has been released!! This is really exciting!” “The story mode in this game is extremely abundant in volume… The video quality, animation and even all the fine details that have been put into the game look really great… Absolutely amazing!! The author shouldn’t be saying this, but this is more exciting than the manga! I can’t wait… seriously!”
Ahaha, well Kishimoto obviously isn't a diehard Naruto fanboy. I mean, I certainly wouldn't expect a fanboy to be that excited about a game.
For those of you out there who really love Naruto the show, the manga and the previous one hundred and one other games out there from Namco Bandai, you'll probably find the latest title for home entertainment consoles a good addition to your gaming library that's also probably filled to the brim with Dynasty Warriors games, Dragon Ball Z games and Orochi Warriors titles.
The game features the largest cast of characters from any other previous Naruto title and gamers are encouraged to beat the crap out of each other using a bunch of fancy ninja moves, special attacks and demon spirits.
The game is available right now at local retailers for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. You can grab a copy for only $59.99 or learn more by visiting the Official Website.
