Plus, battle the five Kage in story mode.

Madara Uchiha, the legendary shinobi brought to life by Impure World Reincarnation reanimation jutsu, the latest issue of Weekly Jump reveals.

Additionally, the magazine reveals story mode will feature battle events with the five Kage.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is due for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on March 5 in North America, March 8 in Europe, and April 18 in Japan.

Thanks, Kazu.

    Yum, though no Edo Kage playable is :/

      I’m still doubting that.
      I know they are apparently currently not there in the roster, but they have a full moveset.
      We saw them in a scan and the last trailer, for fuck’s sake!
      Don’t screw us, CC2!

  • zakou

    Just how many characters are there in this game?! O_O

    Bout time. It’s kind of funny cause he’s been confirmed for about a month now lol

  • KurisuMakise

    I can only imagine the story mode fights now. Also can’t wait to see how Madara plays.

    Go to Saiyanisland. The full roster is posted there plus the combos of Madara and the Ultimate jutsus of edo itachi, rinnegan tobi, and madara. But im really disappointed. The roster is not what it couldve been

      I’m interested to know, how would you change it? :)

      Aren’t there like 80 playable characters? What’s so disappointing about that?

      • xMCXx

        He is probably disapppointed about the fact that there are several characters missing like Kinkaku, Ginkaku and the 7 Swordmen.
        Also, Pre-Timeskip characters that are there without a reason.
        And the 4 Edo Kage that looked like to be playable are not there, but I hope that you can unlock them somehow.

          I’m going to guess they saved some characters for DLC. I’m pretty sure they have used DLC for characters in the past.

          • xMCXx

            Just Support-Only characters in Storm 1.
            But yeah, I hope we’ll get some playable characters as DLC.

        the problem with it is is that only like 12 characters were added total. Most are old.

        80 Characters? Look at the Roster. There are 2 Chojis, 2 Itachis,2 Killerbees, 2 Gaaras, PTS Characters and NO Edo Kages, NO Swordsmen(except Zabuza) and NO GIN/KINKAKU. And by the way, the Chojis,Itachis and Kllerbees and even Gaaras have THE SAME MOVESET, only the Jutus and Ultimate Jutsu are different. THATS a Disappointment. Oh and there are 7 SUPPORT ONLY

    Can’t wait!

  • ShinAsura

    Should be a huge selling point

  • DarthBrian

    How the hell are we getting the game first? o_O

    • zakou

      No idea, I would also like an explenation.

      • DarthBrian

        I’m not complaining, but yeah, I’m curious. :p

        • http://gematsu.com/ Zero

          I’m pretty sure each of the past Naruto UNS games have sold around 1 million copies in the west alone. I can’t be for sure, but I know they sell very well here.

          • DarthBrian

            Yeah, I know *why* we’re getting. But first? All this news is coming out in Jump first, yet we’re getting the game first. I think that is weird. :p

            • http://gematsu.com/ Zero

              NB in the west is pretty slow about updating, they also don’t spend much money on advertisement.

        • zakou

          I am complaining, i can’t let the true origin of this amazing anime/game get “second ass” delay, I say switch the dates damn it! What will the otakus say? CC2 have you no shame? xD
