Naruto Storm 3 – Trailer 5 was the most electrifying in the Storm series of videos. Namco Bandai Games America has released a slightly extended version of Kurama Mode, showing Naruto hit Sasuke in the air before launching the Tailed Beast Bomb. We’ve created a few screenshots from the video. Also included is a screenshot of the Six Tails vs Two Tails which we may have missed before. Special thanks to Minato Leroy for bringing this to our attention.


Latest Storm 3 Scan: Naruto Storm 3 Scan 22 – New Susanoo, Planetary Rasengan

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is Namco Bandai Games and CyberConnect2′s fourth entry in the Storm series. It will be available for the Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 in North America and South America on March 5, Europe and Australia on March 8, and Japan on April 18, 2013. The story for the game will begin with the Nine Tailed Fox incident from 16 years ago, continue on to the Five Kage Arc, and go up to the Shinobi War, covering the latest episodes of Naruto Shippuden as they air in Japan.

    Old news actually.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-WmpoP6ZSs Kira

    yeah Finally FIRST!! My beautiful Nibi ^^

  • http://twitter.com/Keviouk KuroPansa

    Now we know that it’s definitely an UJ !

  • UN4Ever

    I knew he was not just an Ultimate Jutsu!

  • Ayman Kamal

    just put madara and i will pre order it for sure

  • uchihalord1994

    And how did you know ? lol

  • jpradarojo

    In the video? yes. the character? Most likely not just an ougi, bu you have no proof of being just that eighter.

  • UN4Ever

    LOOOOOOOOOOL because they won’t create a character image just for a Ultimate jutsu XD

  • Guest

    cant even see the susanoo

  • http://twitter.com/Keviouk KuroPansa

    In the video, yep :-) I don’t know about the character and I’m not interested in it for now, I’d like to see other characters that will be included in the game, even if we just see a few screens about them (improved Konan, new Jugo, Edo Kages, Chiyo, Kimimaro, and maybe other surprising ones like Anko, Kushina, Omoi, Sai’s brother,…)

  • Pedro Alves

    How do you know he’s an awakening? from all i see he can be just an ultimate jutsu

  • Hashirama-Mito


  • naruto and kurama teamed up

    he is only ultimate jutsu because this naruto has the normal kcm as awakening

  • Bardock – SSJ2


  • Javier de Prada

    The sixth image seems to be an awakening…

  • Javier de Prada

    Look at the sixth image, it seems to be an awakening
    If not, well they wouldn’t make an scan, so much images and the only new thing in the 5th trailer just for an ultimate

  • http://www.facebook.com/jamie.broome.98 Jamie Broome

    If this is just an awakening like last game then the bijuu bomb would be like the special he had then cause it was slightly cinematic at the end. We’ll just have to wait and see but I’m looking forward to the game big time.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/József-Pálos/100001576711815 József Pálos

    PTS Sasuke
    Same character with two different awakenings.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000328444479 Jonathan Rivera Almodovar

    I don’t think that’s awakening I think it’s playable

  • Fraxcelsior

    Everyone,m open your fricking eyes already. 1st TBM Naruto we saw was an ultimate. These new pictures are not an ultimate, but rather TBM gameplay. So the character will be this:
    -regular outfit, moveset, etc.
    -Ultimate Jutsu: Bijuu Dama, Naruto goes TBM, changes into Kurama, uses bijuu dama
    -Awakening: Tailed Beast Mode in all epicness

    (Ultimate jutsu and awakening can be the same, look at Itachi and Susano’o

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    awakening = playable :P

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Thank you CC2 for clearing this up. He is playable. Now just is he an awakening or a completely new character.

  • Fraxcelsior

    Finally someone who has the patience to view the ENTIRE article before asking/raging. 3 Images of TBM as an awakening and people are stll going on about Ultimate Jutsu only TBM.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000328444479 Jonathan Rivera Almodovar

    I mean like normal playable character that u can choose

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    I know, just being technical. ^_^

  • Drizzyfresh92

    Are you guying actually going 2 buy this sh!t i dont no wat you guys see in this but i see nothing improve in this

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Indeed they didn’t improve much. But there is a decent amount of new content even if a lot is rehashed. I don’t blame anyone for not buying it, trust me, but I plan on it at least for now.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    I gotta say, image 3 and 6 look like in game animations. It’s still possible they are part of the Ultimate from the trailer, but it seems highly unlikely.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    The images are from the video if you read the article. They are all part of the Ultimate seen in the video.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Playable or not (awakening or separate as well), that’s all I want to know. Ugh, this is getting ridiculous. The article says the screenshots are taken directly from that video of his Ultimate Jutsu (which they are just by watching it). We know it’s an Ultimate, so CC2 just shows us more of the Ultimate? When you release news CC2 release NEWS not a little extra of the same.

  • Pedro Alves

    Thank U for clearing them up

  • Randall Johnson

    Might wanna get that pre-order in soon. Time’s a-wastin’.

  • Drizzyfresh92

    the thing they missing is balance it has no balance glitch bugs lags at all just because they added new characters and new jutsu they think they can win me over no but like you said i will 2 plan on it at least for now

  • Pedro Alves

    NO. It´s just a screenshot from the ult jutsu in the video

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Agree, but I grow tired of CC2 not clearing this up as soon as possible.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    The pictures are from the video, read the article. All the screenshots are a part of the Ultimate in said video.

  • vladisimo93

    konan jugo chizo kimimaro anko kushina omoi sai s brother absolutely rubish

  • http://twitter.com/A_Gill27 Alex Gill

    With all the new characters online match ups could be so diverse. I’m thinking Itachi, with Utakata and Naruto as supports.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    80 as opposed to 72. 80 is a heck of a lot, but it’s not much more then Generations so the diversity won’t change much.

  • Fraxcelsior

    Okey, apparently people do not see this, but there are 3 images here that are not of Tailed Beast Mode’s ultimate jutsu, Bijuu Dama. They clearly show gameplay of TBM. Look at the several new images…

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    The screenshots are from the video, and the video is his Ultimate. Read the article where it explicitly says this, then watch the video and pause constantly. You’ll see.

    Here, I’ll quote for you straight from above: “We’ve created a few screenshots from the video.” -SI

  • Guest

    Three images… LOOK. Three images that are not of the ultimate.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Watch the video and pause a lot. THE SCREENSHOTS ARE FROM HIS ULTIMATE, you can clearly see that. SI even said so in the article itself. Why are you arguing against the obvious?

  • XGriever

    all screenshots of BM Naruto that you see before you are screenshots that were took from his ultimate Jutsu from the US Trailer. We have ONLY seen him as a UJ for now.

  • Pedro Alves

    Does anyone knows if there will be ult jutsu in awakening mode like storm 1? Probably not, but i may have miss a scan or not.

  • IsaacR95

    Just pre ordered after they confirmed EMS Sasuke

  • TCh

    Would you guys stop with the argument of biju mode being an ultimate XD have faith! they wouldnt just take a bunch of screen shots of the biju mode if its just an ultimate XD im sorry, just have faith :D

  • TCh

    plus, why would they make a little bit of a trailer for a ultimate XD

  • julian2kriss

    Man even though this is 4th storm game the animation is still jagged, should improve the graphics by now.

  • uchihalord1994

    Lol don’t get me wrong i would reallyyyyyyyy wish for him to be playable ! xD but we really need a proof :/

  • SasukexNaruto2

    So if Madara isn’t in the game you arn’t buying it?

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/SHO2NFZXUKIZHMRFMKBLMOQCEI Tobi

    How do people keep thinking these screen shots confirm biju mode as playable. These screen shots are just shots of the little part of the uj from the extended trailer. Just read the description. I want him to be in as a playable character too but that doesn’t mean we should throw logic out of the window. These are just screen shots of the new Uj.

  • Michael

    I think they’re gonna make a new sage mode without
    The cape and this is the awakening or bijuu mode is his own separate character and kuramas the awakening.

  • guest

    If you watch the video closely at the very beginning you can see where the UJ starts, but if you pay attention to that you can also tell that the color scheme of of the original hit was the same as TBM naruto. Plus, as far as I can remember, if a transformation occurs during an UJ its normally at the very beginning of it, that transformation wasn’t shown here so again it seems like TBM was already active before the UJ was started. Also, that icon of TBM that popped up a few weeks ago looked quite similar to a character icon that would go in-game. It still could go either way, but the odds of it being an awakening or even a seperate character are still higher than it just being an UJ.

  • Michael

    I hope it is.

  • Super Devil

    Notice how he starts the ougi already in Kurama mode…

  • unleashrage

    Kimimaro rubbish are you serious? if not for his condition he was suffering from he would have killed Gaara. So Konan the first person to actually make Obito sweat and give up one of his eyes to live is rubbish? out of curiosity who do you like?

  • Tyler Casilio

    Minus the PTS characters but yeah your right. It’ll help but

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/SABIK5MDEDEIZJBB3YEVGMGNHM Alex Boehm

    Anyone else hoping they give Deidara his ultimate art for his ultimate? D: i wanna be able to set off myself as a nuke :c

  • Ruseo

    i agree konan is BA also would LOVE to see anko fully playable even as dlc. chio is meh to me and kimmimaro is ok no problems with him anyways. if kushina is in it i want sasukes mother XD sais brother no lol

  • http://www.facebook.com/john.ramirez.7587370 John Ramirez

    I don’t know why CC2 is trolling us and won’t confirm Madara already.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    People don’t read.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    These screenshots are taken from his Ultimate, it says right there in SI’s article. In addition, if you pause the video constantly you’ll see the parts where the screenshots came from.

    “We’ve created a few screenshots from the video.” -SI

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    They said they were going to implement antialiasing (which gives off the illusion of smooth edges) in this one, but so far I don’t see it.

  • Super Devil

    Guys, if it is ougi from a normal naruto, shouldn’t we see him transforming in the ougi cinematic? He starts the ougi already in Kurama Mode…

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    That’s the miracle of editing my friend. He could have easily transformed for the rush part before the cinematic (like Bee for his V2), which was not shown.

    Other then that, the original scan showed a normal Naruto for his character icon, so separate character seems unlikely. Awakening is more palpable.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    The transformation could occur before the cinematic, the in game portion where you need to hit the opponent (just like Bee, Suigetsu, and other characters that transform before the cinematic). The character icon was a normal Naruto in the original scan, so all evidence points to an Awakening if he is playable.

  • DavidBowieSamaSenpaiSan

    Im going to be hooked on storymode :| Doubt I’ll be playing online much. Cant wait for the 7 swordsman fight *___*

  • Pedro Alves

    Want an example. Bee from naruto storm 2 before the ultj cinematic gets his version 1 cloak, the cinematic only stars after he hits the oponent (with the cloak already activated)

  • Tobi Uzumaki

    Are u blind and greedy seeing how they just gave us two of the 5 most wanted?

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/QAQN42S2FAM74B7M3BOUXM6SSE Donald Barnett

    after reading the other comments, the screenshots are the ones from the video. I really hope it is still an awakening tho. Its not like we havent seen much of bijuu. He has been fighting for quite a while now in that form so they should be able to give him a moveset.

  • Tobi Uzumaki

    Wut happen to ur sex picture I was in love with it

  • Tobi Uzumaki

    I will search Google earth to see if ur a babe who is funk able

  • Tobi Uzumaki

    First funk yeah by cheating ;P

  • http://www.facebook.com/dewayne.glass Dewayne Glass

    their want you to think that hes not going to be in the game but they will show use a scan of him soon i hope then that a$$ scan we got monday.

  • pjrene

    It would be the most cruel kick in the nuts if they´re not including him as an akwakening. I think both Naruto and Sasuke will be getting Kurama Mode and Susano´o also as awakening. Also i just watched the post about the February schedule of the Anime. Looks like it´s gonna be one episode aways from showing Madara when the game hits North America and it´ll be airing when the game arrives at Europe. Now my guess is he won´t be included into the story mode, but he´ll proabably appear as a playable character for Free Battle. Just look at this roster when you want to know what my expextations are.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_AJHFSEUP4KMLDLIGAOUFEOJPUU Rose Abrams

    In a perfect world, Kurama Mode would be an ultimate/awakening for Hokage Naruto. Sadly, the world isn’t perfect :/.

  • Baryll

    Pretty sure this is an actual character.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    He is a game seller, they know this. The closer to release before they reveal him the more hype there will be.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Ummm… what…?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

  • Baryll

    Don’t fail me like you have in the past CC2, make that 3 on 3 from the survey a real thing. ; A ; I BEG OF YOU.

  • JusticeManJoe

    Madara has been confirmed via true despair edition box art

  • Pedro Alves

    that’s tobi

  • Ben Breen

    what i wanna know is can we play as the one tail like actual one tail not just normal gaara

  • http://www.facebook.com/randy.salobir Randy Salobir

    You don’t see him actually transforming into BM. Maybe he will be a own char? BM Naruto, this as Ultimate and the Fake-Fox as Awakening?

  • TsunaSawada- (Vongola Clan)

    yo madara is in look at the collectors editon true despair box and you see madaras charcter art in there hope this helped to those madara fans

  • http://www.facebook.com/randy.salobir Randy Salobir

    No. They have all Jinchuuriki and Bijuus because they appeared in the Manga now summoned by Obito. Shukaku has not appeared here and they don’t have pre-Shippuuden Chars. At the time the game is playing Gaara doesn’t have the SHukaku anymore. So i doubt it very much

  • UN4Ever

    Something tell me we will get the proof soon!! :)
    maybe with a new trailer with BM & EMS And MADARA!!!! :D

  • http://www.facebook.com/jordsnikko.gacutan Nikko Gacutan

    so what about the part 1 mode of all the konoha 11?

  • KingRuff

    I have to agree with part of this. They would be pretty stupid to dedicate a scan and new trailer footage for an ultimate.

  • llantern

    i was just wondering… since all the jinchuriki awaken to their respective tailed beast. except gaara… shouldnt tailed beast mode naruto be his own character and his awaken be the full tailed beast mode? that just crossed my mind ._.

  • Jaye J

    Well, this confirms he’s more than an ultimate. Most likely he’ll be an awakening but it’ll be cool to have him as an actual full character and character slot.

  • Rekkonn Xanderzhxinedershinn

    So they show Naruto in this form and make a video of it and everything even though it has not been shown in the Anime yet, and then they don’t make any part in the video for Sasuke’s new and improved Susano’o at the same time…?

  • Battler624

    i guess he means when you look at the cover you see toby in the middle with madara top left and kabuto top right

  • isaac33313

    By the looks of it he will probably be OP as a UJ, and im pretty sure he will be an awaken. If he werent why would they put him on will of fire CE case.

  • Pedro Alves

    When I said it was tobi, the scan with the australian cover (madara) didn’t come yet

  • http://twitter.com/UNDISPUTED_NOC UNDISPUTED_BITW(¬‿¬)

    We want Madara when do we want him now!! We want Madara when do we want him now!! We want Madara when do we want him now!!

  • asideofrasengan

    A part of me wants him in the game because hes awesome, and another part doesnt because hes probably going to be OP

  • TCh

    :D i hope it is a seperate character XD

  • TCh

    Well it might be following the manga, there was a interveiw aaaaaages ago saying it XD COULD BE! not saying it is just, it would make better sense :)

  • Paul Holden

    I Hope This Isn’t True But There A Chance That Bijuu Mode Naruto May just An Ultimate Jutsu

    Ok A Little Vote People

    1) If You Just Want Bijuu Mode Naruto As A Ultimate Jutsu

    2) Or If You Want Both Bijuu Mode Naruto As A Ultimate Jutsu And A Awakening

  • Srameq

    is this ultimate jutsu or tranfsorm ?

  • Andi

    its just an ulti so low ….

  • Andi

    its just an ulti i thought its an awakening but only a ult..

  • Andi

    hell yeah
