The Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm franchise sure is a hot one! Earlier in the year, Namco Bandai revealed over 1 million copies of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations shipped worldwide.

In their latest financial statements, Namco Bandai Games has revealed over 1 million copies of Naruto Generations have been sold worldwide! This includes 440,000 copies sold between April 1, 2012 and June 30, 2012. Based on that data, Saiyan Island infers over 560,000 copies of Naruto Generations were sold in Japan, North America, and Europe between February 23rd (the Japanese release date) and March 31st!

In our opinion, that’s quite impressive, millions of dollars worth of sales! It’s no wonder Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is slated for a Spring 2013 release.

Congratulations to the team at CyberConnect2 and Namco Bandai Games for their success! We hope they can do it again with Storm 3!

Note: Shipped means sent to retailers. Sold means bought by consumers (fans).

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations is a 3D fighter by CyberConnect2 for the Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360. It has a revamped online mode, 72 playable characters, 38 stages. The game was published in Japan on February 23, 2012 and will be released in North America on March 13, 2012, and March 30, 2012 in Europe.

    they’re probably mad hyped and maybe they’ll probably listen a little bit more to the fans to get the same results or even greater.

    over 1 million piece of sh*ts sold worldwide to fanboys and others.
    And yes , it is a piece of shit from very good reasons.
    go ahead and reply a hateful comment to me to get likes from fanboys who will protect a game made with no effort at all ;D

    haha ur a funny person x3 ur just sayin ur opinion why people say mean things :o

  • taz mazia

    lol I have heard this so many times from people like you who try not actually correct me wrong and rather refer everything I say is an “opinion”
    well wanna see a proof ? go watch spyn09′s advance review to this game ;D
    oh ! and don’t worry MMC, you can still refer everything I say as an ”opinion” and not use you brain cells at all.

    You must get your ass WHIPPED online to say something like that,lol. Hey…screw it. We have a million more people to enjoy this WONDERFUL game with. We dont need you,my friend. ^_^

  • narutopiece1

    it’s an insult saying ‘a game made with no effort at all’ to the people who spent tirelessly day and night without sleep. RETARDS like you should just keep their mouths shut. i can understand you not liking the game but insulting the people who put so much effort into the game is just plane stupid and retarded.

    … It IS still an opinion, lmao. Even with anybody’s review, regardless of who they are. Referring to a review just means your opinion matches theirs, really (Or with how you sound to be a follower, you opinion is probably just derived from theirs). And while I agree Storm Generations is not an amazing improvement over Storm 2, or a great game in general, it’s also not a complete failure. You have to keep in mind it wasn’t meant to be the next installment in the series or anything of that sort. Really, it seems to be more of a fun-to-play, or something to keep us satisfied, while we wait for Storm 3.

    Demi speaks right haha i’ve only heard the kids who suck at the game say that as if the characters new ones and newly added game modes arent shit. Which they are awesome go play storm 2 and quit voicing your opinions because nobody cares!

  • dark_flame360

    You’re so funny lol

  • taz mazia

    To Davil Gomez – a very nice comment you left and yes it ISN’T failure either , more like a mediocre 5or5.5/10.

    To Demi Speaks aka Gen fanboy – I am not some stupid fanboy who plays an unbalance online game like you .
    When I buy an anime game , I want to have lots of modes and cool looking animetions to play with .  true BALANCED online fighting games are MK9 SF4 and many others.
    And sadly for you , in most of my matches I  win considering most of my opponents were spammers and lag players.

    Gen was terrible, glad I returned it while I could.

  • http://www.facebook.com/RonnieSpeaksIII Demi Speaks

    Dont mind that mean ol’ bad man,CC2&NAMCO. He didnt mean it. He just doesnt like the fact that he cant keep his BP. I know,I know…you have your flaws in battle sometimes,but you turn out to be SO fun to have around in the end. So your flaws no longer matter. We Love You. Announce OMOI as playable,and i’ll love you long time,LMMFAO!!! STOOOORRRRRMMM TTHHHRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/CR7GPCVRWLVKVGOOGXVK4YZNJE Hollow V2

    Taz is right, but perhaps a little extreme. Generations was slabbed together, and overall not worth a buy (IMO ofc). With those lame little windows movie maker slideshows before each battle, it was incredibly disappointing and boring. Storm 3 seems to be better, and I’m sure it is. I love cyberconnect and their work, but generations is poor compared to their other storm games, .hack series and asura’s wrath.

    Gen is a good game.

     special editions?

  • Itachio_oUchiha

    No you were terrible ! Not the game ;)

  • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

    And with Storm 3 on its way, plus the manga going on for at least another two years, I wouldn’t be surprised if we see a Storm 4, too

    my brain cells are being used though @-@

    and also those are opinions as well XD

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KMVC2AHUM6A6GYY2VMIFBFBGIU SuperdeadlyKing

    gen is a good game, best game in the storm series for online play however offlines too easy -_-

  • Grimmjow66

    Naruto Shippuden: The Final Storm.

  • H3LLRav3n

    Generations isn’t bad, but it’s not good either. I enjoy the combo cancel and chakra air dash implements, the sub bar, and 70+ characters. Online, though unbalanced, is much more enjoyable. Basically, no game is perfect, but at least the problems in Generations are tolerable compared to it’s previous installments…well, minus Storm 1.

  • fabricej

    thats a sick name, they wouldnt be able to do that though unless it is absolutely clear that the manga is over.

  • nicholas deo

    lets face it guys everything about naruto is good lol
