Namco Bandai Games today announced the next title for their Ultimate Ninja STORM franchise, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution. The new game will be available in 2014 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. No next-gen version is planned, nor is a Wii U iteration. The ultimate anime fighting game from famed developer CyberConnect2 returns with new techniques and characters than ever before.
Stunning anime visuals and fluid 3D ninja fighting action come together once again for the largest and most explosive Ultimate Ninja STORM game yet. Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution features new gameplay mechanics including devastating Combination Ultimate Jutsu attacks, allowing characters to combine their honed powers to create powerful techniques to bring opponents to their knees. With a roster reaching 100 playable characters spanning the entire Naruto and Naruto Shippuden anime arcs, there are sure to be characters that fit everyone’s play style.
In addition, a brand new character designed by NARUTO manga creator Masashi Kishimoto also makes an appearance in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution.
“The Ultimate Ninja STORM series continues to be the pinnacle of anime titles with stellar graphics, exciting gameplay and a bevy of online modes for players to challenge each other from around the world,” said Chris Gilbert Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Namco Bandai. “Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution will continue that tradition with more characters, new attacks and the ability to connect with friends online.”
Naturo is one of the world’s best-selling manga series, with the hit anime TV series currently broadcast worldwide to massive audiences. The goal of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution, then, is to give those fans a chance to control the action directly for themselves.
