If the titles for these Naruto games get any longer you'll have to buy airplane tickets to get from the headline to the main body of the text. Anyway, Namco Bandai has revealed that a special pre-order bonus for Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 includes a Goku gi for Naruto.

The game actually looks surprisingly good and I was shocked at how fluent and cinematic the gameplay looks without the use of QTEs. Can you believe it? All the gameplay footage is actually gameplay footage and the tie-in with the cinematics is seamlessly effortless. That's how you design and game and CyberConnect2 looks to have done a great job of it.

Namco Bandai is aiming to release the game next year for home consoles and Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 will mark the first game that has cross-branded the Naruto franchise with Dragon Ball Z for this generation's home consoles. It might be nice to see a Naruto Shippuden X Dragon Ball Z at some point. It's entirely possible since Cyberconnect2 makes both games and Namco Bandai publishes both brands...so um, yeah, what are you waiting for Namco?

Anyway, Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is set for release in March of 2013. The game looks pretty good and I have to admit that while Namco has published countless DBZ and Naruto games that actually try to find ways to make each new game slightly more distinct than the previous game...it doesn't always work, but they try.
