Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 has been released! This is really exciting!” said Masashi Kishimoto, author of the Naruto manga series. “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!”

    GOD!!! THE HYPEEE!! Sorry for the caps i just had to. I pre-ordered my copy, sadly normal copy because im poor and im thinking also of getting Tomb Raider and not eat anything while i play those two games because im short on money LOL.

    Anyways im very excited but sadly i will get it like 10th or later because in Europe it comes out in 3 days and there is also the shipping time.

    I love Naruto and for the manga author to say it’s that good is big deal, this isn’t marketing, CC2 showed it at first with ultimate ninja storm 1 but it really hit everyone with their second Storm game, it had scenes better done than in anime itself, so no wonder this is the one they put most of their work into and the author finally decided to prise them!

    CC2 and Masashi Kishimoto are very creative bunch of people.
