The Naruto franchise has been popular for so long now, and even though the creator, Masashi Kishimoto, has announced that the series will be ending soon, it isn’t stopping developers CyberConnect2 and Namco Bandai from creating even more games. Introduced today is the first ever trailer for the sequel in the Ultimate Ninja Storm saga that is set in the Naruto Shippuden era.
The gameplay in the Ultimate Ninja series has always been wild and unusual for most fighting games, featuring a gigantic 3D battle arena for quick and agile movements. This is no different this time around as the new trailer features Kurama, the nine-tailed fox that was sealed within Naruto, in and epic struggled against the former third Hokage, Hiruzen Sarutobi. The emphasis seems to be on the past and history of Konoha, but don’t expect to be left without our main character, Naruto as it was revealed the game will be based on the fourth shinobi world war arc.
Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 will be released sometime in 2013 for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
