The title will revolutionize online play and ramp up the number of playable and support characters beyond any previous NARUTO SHIPPUDEN game. Players will compete in a huge variety of online battle modes with their favorite characters including Naruto, Sasuke, Zabuza and Haku – two ninja characters fans have been waiting to see more of since the launch of the original manga – and many more new ninja appearing in the game.

In a first for the NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja Storm series, NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations will feature an innovative system that integrates real-world collectible cards with the in-game universe. The next generation of NARUTO SHIPPUDEN collector cards will each carry a code allowing players to unlock corresponding artwork for their in-game profile and engage in a special mini-battle to unlock a bonus skill and gain an advantage in the main fight.

    I hope this game is not disappointing. I would like to see 3 jutsus playable in the game (the mechanics are already built in) for all characters (for instance, triangle circle like normal rasengan, triangle hold circle for space time rasengan, and jump triangle circle like itachi’s air fireball). And I hope they make it easier to fight air guarding and air chakra shuriken players.

    I hope they improve all character movesets especially Minato’s, orochimaru’s, and kisame’s.  

    oh by the way i am glad the game is coming out soon, i hope the game doesnt get delayed.

    This isn’t a bad waiting time, I hope they can make the game great with all that time.

    Yes thank you. March 13 is not bad at all. Mass effect 3 comes out the same month. I am getting both of them

  • Sam Armistead

    makes sense since for storm 1 the usa got it first with japan and europe getting itafter that (not sure what order) for storm 2 europe got it first then the usa then japan so it only make sense for japan to get it first this time so all regions have gotten at least one of the games first.
