Updated release adds new chapter, character, missions, and more.

Namco Bandai has announced Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst at Japan Expo in France.

Coming to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC in winter 2013, the game will be available to new owners as a retail title, and to owners of the original game as a downloadable add-on.

The game will add the following features:

  • Additional Chapter: Finally free of Kabuto’s control, Itachi intends to crack the Reanimation forbidden jutsu. Will an unprecedented Uchiha alliance with Sasuke be enough to handle it?
  • New playable Character: Kabuto reaches the almighty Sage mode and is now playable in versus mode. Unleash his power and defeat your opponents both offline and online.
  • Director’s Cut Edition: Discover completely revamped Storm 3 cinematics and experience more intensely than ever the epic conflict consuming the entire ninja world.
  • 100 New Missions: Embark on a whole new series of missions, many with their own uniquely challenging objectives.
  • 38 Additional Costumes: Outfit characters in a selection of 38 costumes from the Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 DLC packs.

    Is the DLC gonna be free?

    • Souter

      This will be add into the game so no you have to buy the game to have them. Or it’s just the outfits that already on the store witch you have to play for.

  • Souter

    Awesome!! One new character a bit of a let down was hoping for more but meh, hopefully these will be the same dlc out fits we already have. =)

    • unleashrage

      Hopefully full burst and the dlc sell well for cc2 to consider to add more characters.

      • Souter

        Hope so but i Doubt it this will probably be the last dlc for storm 3, there probably save the rest of the new characters for storm 4.

  • sagadeogo2011

    will wait for this one, LOL

  • Anime10121

    Ok, now THIS is the kinda expansion I can get behind! Not ripping off the people who bought the original and offering it as DLC for those who already have the game is an AWESOME move! Now, I just wander how much its gonna actually cost (probably 15, maybe 20, cuz it is offering quite a bit)! Cant wait for this :D

    And also, maybe they’ll actually fix the scenes that were made exclusively for the game and are uncannon to the manga with the “revamped cinematics”!!!

    • Shogunreaper

      if they don’t fix all the problems and bugs then it is a total rip off, for both the original storm 3 owners and the people who will buy this.

  • DarthBrian

    Oh I must have this. Never got UNS3 so not sure if I should wait or get UNS3 when it’s cheaper and apply free patch. hmmmmm…

    Will wait on box art. >_>

    • Anime10121

      They never said it would be free did they?

      • DarthBrian

        I guess I read the article too quickly. They did not say it was free. I’ll just get the Full Burst edition then.

        • Zuhri69

          But they did not say if it will be paid either.

          • DarthBrian

            Yeah, but it’s on PC too, so I’ll probably get that version anyway.

  • veruses

    PC version?…. I…. I don’t know what to say.

    I want to see the specs and who’s porting it before I form an opinion.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    My body is ready

  • PrinceHeir

    wow it’s a good thing i didn’t bought this game yet.

    guess this is the complete edition :D

    • Budgiecat

      Crap….I hope they don’t pull this with JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure.

      I already preordered it…

  • Rafael Martines

    Edo Kages?

  • Revorse

    I’m sorta mad. I bought the original last week.

    • Bobby Jennings

      How much did you buy it for? You can always just get the update/DLC

      • Revorse

        I got it for about 35. It’s no big deal. I’ll probably buy Full Burst anyway.

        • Bobby Jennings


  • Noctis Caelum

    luckly i didn’t bought it the game yet, because of the story spoiler.

    But now i will wait for Storm 3 Full Burst.
    Until than the anime will already reach the story. :)

    • Bobby Jennings


  • Emdimian

    I’m so hype about sage kabuto, it strikes me as odd though. Why do all this, but not what ALL the fans have been asking for? That being make the Edo Kages playable.

  • Elvick

    Now I’m really glad I’ve yet to buy into this series. xD

  • Sae-Won Yoon

    Oh look, CC2 actually pulled a Capcom on everyone/

    There’s no way I’m gonna fall for this cr-
    >PC in winter 2013
    OH. MY. GOD.

  • Bobby Jennings

    So friggin EXCITED.

  • Nice Boat

    The war needs to be expanded and show the group of Hinata, Neji, Kiba, Shino and the others. These guys were completely irrelevant in the story mode.

  • manasword0

    Pretty pumped for this, but why stop at the Kabuto fight? It looks like the manga might be ending this year…don’t wanna spoil for people, but it’s wrapping up the war quite nicely

    • Anime10121

      I hope so, I want my epic Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm IV Conclusion game on current/next gen! Its been hard not to spoil myself what with the anime taking so long to catch up! I hope the manga does conclude either this year or early next!

    • sll1cool1m

      Bro this is one of the highest grossing manga ever. The mangaka will never end the manga. Typical shounen manga shit. There will be Naruto Z, Naruto GT…

      • Budgiecat

        So was Dragon Ball and that ended. This and One Piece need to end imo

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    I haven bought a Naruto Fighting game since “Naruto Narutimate Accel 2” fr PS2.

  • xMCXx

    Just Sage Mode Kabuto?
    What about the goddamn Kage?

    • Bobby Jennings

      They said to be patient. They’ll reveal more in the coming months.

      • xMCXx

        I was patient since I bought the damn game.
        I can only hope they will reveal more.
        Edo Kage, Kinkaku and Ginkaku need to be in it.

        • Bobby Jennings

          Agreed. I feel your pain on that one.

  • Aldridge517

    This is why I always wait a couple years before buying a game nowadays. Bonus content :D

  • shogunknight

    ….pc…pc….pc….PC!!? XD

    • Budgiecat

      Why do you care about PC so much? Pirate a free version? Nude mods?

      • LightGenx

        To take advantage of the Storm series beautiful graphics?

        • MrRobbyM

          I’ll back you and say that these Naruto Storm games would be so much more beautiful in a higher resolution.

          • EnIgMoZz2

            No. I really do not think a Naruto game would be any higher than 1080p, and PS3 and Xbox 360 are capable of running games at 1080p.

            • MrRobbyM

              Except I’m pretty sure the Storm games are 720p on consoles.

        • EX+

          Fair enough but it won’t be a HUGE difference.

          • Niyari

            assuming you don’t have a fisher price computer, the differences between console and PC ports is very noticeable. going from SF4 on my PS3 to PC is a gigantic downgrade in both graphical quality -and- loading times.

            • EX+

              Fisher price… Lol.

      • Zero

        Tons of Japanese games are not released on PC. Especially localized versions here in the west. I’m pretty sure Namco-Bandai hasn’t released many games on PC either.

        Check this out –

        Just a few reasons to be excited about a PC release.

    • Karl Josef

      buy a ps3!

  • LightGenx

    Nice to see Sage Kabuto but I think people are still expecting the Kage.
    All four played a role in the war, and while it was nice to see them in the story there really was no reason for them to be left unplayable. I’m hoping they fix this mistake.

  • shark_tsuki

    PC gamers will finally get this game. Just show developers respect and get original version. Dont pirate the game.

  • Barrit

    So cool! I was thinking of buying UNS3 soon too.. so glad I waited! :)
