The 2013 New York Comic Con is underway! Saiyan Island had the opportunity to play a demo of Namco Bandai and CyberConnect’s Naruto Storm 3 Full Burst, featuring Dragon Sage Kabuto. We were able to capture his neutral combo, down combo, up combo, air combo, jutsu, grab, ultimate jutsu, and awakening. What do you think of Dragon Sage Kabuto’s moveset?

In case you are wondering, Dragon Sage Kabuto occupies a slot above the rest of the characters on the roster selection screen.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is Namco Bandai Games and CyberConnect2′s fourth entry in the Storm series. It was released for the PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 in North America/South America on March 5, Europe/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.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3: Full Burst builds upon the original Storm 3 by adding an additional chapter to the game (Sage Kabuto vs Itachi/Sasuke), Sage Kabuto as a playable character, revamped cinematics, 100 new missions, and 38 costumes that were originally DLC for Storm 3. The game hits North America on October 22 and Europe/Australia on October 25.

  • Hagareno

    He’s a pretty cool character, but I’m not sure he’s cool enough to justify a year.

  • xxbrothawizxx

    He has a pretty great moveset. Looking forward to using him.

  • TheGameTagerZ

    We waited long lines for you guys! Expect more footage coming up later today and tomorrow!!

  • PoisonDragonCobra

    oh….my….God…. I just fell in love… that moveset!! That Ultimate! That awakening!! Definitely worth my money!! Can’t wait for him!!

  • Hinata47D

    that was amazing! though i wish he would have used more of the sound four in his movesets instead of stupid kimimaru all the damn time…!

  • TheGameTagerZ

    That was his whole moveset literally lol. Kimmi based.

  • Robert Bode

    Still doesn’t satisfy the bad impression storm 3 made.

  • Jonas Sampaio Santiago

    Awakening REALLY looks insane! I LOVED IT! =D

  • Nigel Davis

    I’m thoroughly impressed with this, not enough to justify the time it took, but impressed.
    They forgot the tilt (unless he doesn’t have one). Too bad he doesn’t have awakening actions.

    All in all, not worth the cost.

  • David Holmes

    Let’s just wait for the story mode.

  • Quinn Noble

    edo kages come here please

  • Chris Bosh

    What about the tilt & awakening grab?

  • SasukeUchiha5DX

    His moveset actually looks pretty cool! I don’t think he needs the big slot though, that slot is the size of 5 regular slots, so if they shrunk him in a regular slot, they could fit the edo kages lol :D
    Excited to play as Sage Kabuto! :)

  • Mark Rose

    Uh….no…changing its size wouldn’t have any sort of impact whatsoever. Its how much space there is for more characters. I don’t even know where to begin with this one.

    But yeah, the size of teh image has nothing to do with how many characters could fit in the game.

  • John Doe

    In the demo his awaken wasn’t available?

  • fishinabag

    Imagine if they spent this much time on every character.

  • http://www.saiyanisland.com/ Fabian Ortiz

    We’ll be there for all 4 days, so we’ll get that.

  • John Doe

    Lol they shitted on his awakening combo though…its the same move all over again smh. Thanks for the guys that went to upload this for us.

  • alex

    Looks like a ougi / team ougi cancel should be possible with his neutral combo just before the video.

  • Rick Lee

    His ougi is pretty lame IMO

  • izanagi87

    awesome moveset, can’t wait to see the awakened tilt and grab, hopefully its not just the same as his normal titl and grab

  • Shippudencave

    Has a pretty good moveset but he’s gonna be overused online so I’ll probably stay away.

  • Zero

    His regular moveset was ok and his awakened one was really good (although he only had one combo). Him, Madara, Kakashi, Tobi (rennigan), Sasuke (EMS) and several other chars combos could (should) have been way more epic than what they were. This game wasn’t a huge disappointment or let down for me, it just…..should have been a lot than what it was (well I am a lil disappointed haha).

    Long time Storm fans (even back to Ultimate Ninja fans) know how let down a lot of ppl are. I’m not saying it’s garbage butt it certainly doesn’t deserve a 9/10 or 10/10 (I’d give it a 8/10). So many features were taken out (I’m only talking about the Storm series) since the 1st one that it’s ridiculous.

    Jutsu clashes, wall fights, impact attack, downed attack, selectable jutsu, epic ultimates (10-15 secs), start out transformed and etc. None of this is in any other Storm game after 1. Storm 1 had problems no doubt (terrible story, no sound four, Anko, Asuma and etc) butt the 1st in any series ALWAYS has problems. Your suppose to build from that and improve, not outright take out the series best features.

    It’s as if they traded off from bad story/good gameplay mechanics….up to Storm 3 anyway. Storm 3 story was good (butt I think Storm 2 boss battles were better) butt the gameplay mechanics/features in Storm 1 were better.

    Tbh, all this game needed was everything Storm 1 had, the edo kages, 7 swordsmen, update EVERY char, option to increase health bars, include ALL chas from past Storm games, stage transitions (thought that’s what that ring out thing was at 1st haha), and multiple jutsus.

    Damn….didn’t realize I typed all that till now haha.

  • narutobleachop

    daaaaaymmm he looks OP! must. not. fall. to. evils. of. paid dlc…!!!

  • Corey Bernard Boyd

    honestly i was thinkin the EXACT same thing…..that last game (though imcomplete due to the manga still going on) would have been pure epicness if they did that and even gave the Awakened forms ultimate jutsu….wulda drooled over that

  • http://www.saiyanisland.com/ Fabian Ortiz

    No problem. Me and TGZ will be back at Comic Con for the rest of the weekend getting more footage! So be ready for TONS of exclusive matches!

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Wait how long has storm 3 been out, and they still have not publish this out yet? Also Kabuto’s UJ is kinda lame

  • Jesse Dean

    it’s awesome but that’s not all he show us.

  • hellninja123 .

    heys jesse its me casey bro

  • Vendettá

    I agree. They are focusing way too much on the fighting aspect of the game. Rather than the actual characters and such. Hard to explain, but jutsu clashes, longer ultimates, I mean, just look at Itachi’s Ultimate Jutsu in Storm 1, its epic.

  • RamenGuy (Tobi)

    Nah I think they should focus on the cut scenes and missions.
    -Imaginary fan

  • NARUTOxANKO

    OP ? most of the character in storm 3 are OP and unbalanced so who cares
    about OP ? This game is just a fun game and nobody should take this
    game serious. Most unbalanced Storm game i´ve ever played

  • sonicino

    No different versions of his awakening?, he should use a little bit of all the sound four.

  • EdoMadara

    i dont care what u all say! i am BUYING this and i love DRAGON SAGE MODE KABUTO!!

  • Clone Alpha

    Thanks for the showing up all the moves!

  • Leland South

    “To the players who know how to do ougi cancels (ultimate jutsu cancels)” watch the video again and if you look closely at Kabuto’s down combo right before the giant snakes hit. you can jump out and cancel into ultimate jutsu.. Looks like you have to jump out really quick to make it work…

  • Craig

    Of course you do, Madara.

  • UchihaName

    ME too dude :)

  • Uchiha Ḟailṳreisnotan ṎptionSa

    This is how characters should be done,those long ass amazing cutscenes,and long good animated ultimate,this character felt like a storm 1 character,definetly worth buying,+ they even made the free battle gfx look cool

  • UchihaName

    Oh yeah for sure, we don’t need more characters and improved game play mechanics.
    -Imaginary fan

  • Akirascreaming

    I thought they will f#cked up Sage Kabuto but it seams it got my attension

  • UchihaName

    I gave up online a long time ago. All there are is spammers. It got old quick.

  • Sonkilary

    Still No Availablity of CAVE MAP….Incomplete DLC Like the Whole GAME.

  • Shawn

    damn right i hear yea man completely agree

  • limy

    can i run it very well, I dont want my game to be slow o freeze :
    os:Windows 7-64bit
    graphic card:Intel(R) HD graphics
    ram:4gb
    processor:Intel(R)core(TM) i3 cpu M 380 GHz 2.53Ghz(4CPUs)

    PLEASE Aswer please !
    Thank you!

  • octopops

    Agreed :D

  • SARAH MANN

    its only available on xbox and playstation

  • WildfireZyra

    and pc durr … lol

  • Kasper Lee

    well they dont show anything beyond the anime story and sage mode kabuto has only made his appearance in the most recent naruto shupudden episode

  • Kasper Lee

    you have to consider that they release madara way earlier than when he made appearance in the anime. Kakashi moveset is nothing to expect. Both tobi (rinnegan) and Sasuke (EMS) havent shown any fight abilities at the point storm 3 was released

  • def not a troll

    maybe what they should do is pick one or the other, focus fully on the fighting aspect of the game and balance out the characters to make it more of an even match, or focus fully on making the characters and their abilities as close to the series as they can, instead of just half-assin both aspects… still wondering why tsunades awakening doesn’t heal her… in b4 someone replies with that would be too over powered lol

  • ramrej

    I was just about to watch it, but I changed my mind. I wan’t to find out first hand what’s he like.

  • Zero

    I find those as no excuses whatsoever. CC2 said they were following the manga with this game anyway (I’ll see if I can find the interview where they stated this).

    They literally had Madara reuse 2 things in his combos: susanoo sword (2x) and fireball (3x). That’s it? You know an epic person like him should not have had anything recycled in his combos (although we see a lot of that in the game).

    Kakashi has fire (anime only), water, lightning, earth, summoning, rasengan, sharingan, MS and more. That’s a hell of a lot to work with to have his moveset be what it is haha.

    I can’t really say much for Tobi (rennigan) except for the fact that he reuses some chars jutsu animations (we see a lot of this as well…what a terible pattern haha).

    (I should say this here….my fav Naruto char) Sasuke (EMS) only has slight changes (he’s really in the same boat as Kakashi). The end of his combos, air combo, tilt. As much has he can do: lightning, fire, amaterasu style, snakes, weapon tattoo on his wrist and etc.

    If you really look at it, Naruto is the only person not complained about (combo/jutsu wise anyway). We all know why that is. That’s because they put in more work on him. Air rasengan, multiple combos while awakened, hell he even has multiple air combos when awakened. Things other chars don’t have.

    That whole “we haven’t seem them in the anime” is no excuse. They were able to put in combos and such for the unseen jinchuriki, karin and others. Some char in Storm 1 did lil to nothing butt got full epic movesets and ultimates.

    All I’m saying is time placement is no excuse for making a char up to it’s potential.

  • def not a troll

    I really liked the addition of ring outs and wish they would have furthered their role in the DLC.
    -Imaginary fan

  • def not a troll

    or 10$.

  • Zero

    Idk. All aspects can be balanced (story, char, fighting etc).

    Ppl say awakenings are to OP. I think any char that can transform should be able to butt not get any buffs. Just an entirely different moveset. That’s it. The person gets to transform, get a new moveset and the other person doesn’t have to complain about the other becoming OP.

    Either that or have some kind of normal/balanced mode. In normal mode, attacks like amaterasu would actually burn you to death, a partner is need to get out of a genjutsu (urging you not to fight Uchiha chars alone) and etc. Balanced mode, every char has the same attack power, recovery and such regardless of transformation (same damage with jutsus, ultimates, combos and etc)….something like that would be cool.

    Note: Tbh I hate having to hold Y to transform haha. I think it should be instant.

  • dtrex

    forgot tilt

  • UchihaName

    Ring outs don’t even make sense at all. Just like their new enhanced stages with breakable stuff. A rock in center of stage…

  • TobiramaOfKonoha

    good man!

  • TobiramaOfKonoha

    Madara, lets hang out at Starbucks some day maybe we CAN talk our differences over. If we can agree on something like this that is.

  • TobiramaOfKonoha

    Generations?
    remember Tenten? pts Kankuro?

  • TobiramaOfKonoha

    Hahaha, my RL name is Jessie and my younger brothers is Casey this weirded me out at first.

  • limy

    Pc too

  • Guest

    I know put that was easy to deal if you know how it works, you must be fast and have to use all time the air dash BUT in Storm 3 the air dash doesnt work :) , because its broken. I just want a balnced Naruto game from Cc2 but i think this will be just a dream :(

  • NARUTOxANKO

    I know but that was easy to deal if you know how it works, you must be

  • EdoMadara

    tobirama u live in NL?

  • EdoMadara

    anwser me. would u like these clones to use susanoo or not?

  • TobiramaOfKonoha

    I live in CA North america

  • RamenGuy (Tobi)

    Specially those chakara dash spammers, Those guys don’t let you breath for anything and they spam the sub key like crazy. I even made one substitute twice with shurikens.

  • UchihaName

    Yeah it was horrible. I found the worst broken character with dashing was Raikage, he kept dashing at me and i couldn’t even land one blow with my best character, i was pissed. The sub would always be like Kimi, and Choji. I don’t understand why people felt the need to win so bad in a meaningless game, just play with your fav characters and have fun.

  • UchihaName

    I would have said no. Like i was mad, he kept asking and i was thinking if i was one of them i would have said “hell no, normal clones please susanoo gives me heartburn.” haha

  • Bdock3601

    i really think ill play as sage mode kabuto, his combos are pretty stylish and he doesnt look weak for sure

  • Anthony_weaver86

    If memory serves me correctly they were ahead when gen came out and reveal kyuubi mode, and in storm 2 they were ahead in the pein arc before the anime in usa was even aired.

  • BasedThrasher

    Why can’t all characters have such detailed movesets?

  • Allan Dias Marques

    Why cant we have new combos for Konoha 12? Neji, Lee, Tenten, Hinata, Kiba, Shino, Shikamaru….. they have the same moveset since storm 2 ;(

  • Allan Dias Marques

    pity that many characters still have the same combos as storm 2… -.-

  • Senay Habtemariam

    i no

  • Senay Habtemariam

    i got an even better idea put lars back, or add in either ryu, ken, or goku and vegita cause u cant have costumes for naruto and not have the same moves as goku

  • Shippudencave

    That ultimate will look weird as flip anywhere else.

  • Rage VG

    Actually, I think all of the combos look really nice, it’s just that we’ve been seeing some of them for the past 2 or 3 games.

  • Rage VG

    Maps are basically all the same, anyway. Only difference being the size, the presence of water, and maybe a few obstacles or ring-out.

  • Rage VG

    He does. Tayuya’s his jutsu, Kimimaro for his combos, I belive Kidomarou for his shuriken, And we can probably assume Sakon and Jiroubou are going to be his grab and tilt.

  • Rage VG

    It also looks like you can cancel it from the second and third/fourth it.

  • Doge

    Downton Abbey. Don’t be silly let me poss.

  • asd

    edo kages …

  • Khi

    never gonna happen.

  • Khi

    too much work.

  • Khi

    If only all the other characters were this detailed. I wonder what his tilt’s like.

  • Dangerous5000x

    I wonder if his grab is the same as awakening or not.

  • limy

    can i run it very well, I dont want my game to be slow o freeze :
    os:Windows 7-64bit
    graphic card:Intel(R) HD graphics
    ram:4gb
    processor:Intel(R)core(TM) i3 cpu M 380 GHz 2.53Ghz(4CPUs)

    PLEASE Aswer please !
    Thank you!

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Lars yes but everyone else no, Lars was only in it cause Kishi created his design. If I am right

  • Anthony_weaver86

    lol yeah cause CC2 is lazy

  • adracamas

    Intel Graphics will be your downfall. At least find a cheap aftermarket card. NVidia prefferably. Everything else SHOULD work.

  • adracamas

    Some extra ram couldn’t hurt though.

  • Loser

    His tilt was shown last week I’m pretty sure. It’s like Yugito’s. he kinda jumps back I think and small snakes slither out, then they just sit there. Idk if the video shows him hitting with it.

  • EdoMadara

    what is ur favoriete jutsu?

    1.Katon gokkakyou no jutsu
    2.Kuchiyose Gedo mazo
    3.Kuchiyose Edo tensei
    4.rinne tensei
    5.shinra tensei ( almighty push)
    6.rasengan
    7.rasen shuriken
    8. chidori
    9. chidori stream
    10.oodama rasengan
    11. Izanami/Izanagi
    AND THE STRONGEST JUTSU! Heaven concealed ! ( madara´s jutsu where giant meteors fall out of the sky)

  • limy

    I dont want the best graphics ,I just want the game to be good without freezing or a slow game, Do you think is the game to me going to be slow ? Anyway i dont have money to buy it .

  • izanagi87

    ultimate cancels in all 3 of his combos. oooohhh yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh!

  • Tyler Casilio

    Definitely not buying just for this

  • Sasori Nagashi

    That’s not even the jutsu name -_-

  • Sasori Nagashi

    You are.

  • Sasori Nagashi

    Technically being able to phase those different abilities and their torsos through his dicksnake would count as some of Sakon/Ukon’s ability. I wanna see his awakening grab and tilt though.

  • BrainYZ

    I thought you live in Konoha

  • ShisuiUchiha88

    Wow he looks better than i expected :D
    But i’m not sure will i give 10 or 15 euro for it. Still need time to think about it.

  • IZUNA UCHIHA

    I am no longer a dead man I am a dragon

  • IZUNA UCHIHA

    but brother I thought you “loved” hashirama?

  • TobiramaOfKonoha

    I am on Vacation in California because I am tired of seeing my elder brother’s flirtation with Madara!

  • Albert Eagle Siegel

    he is op, they need to fix sage naruto and give him more sage art moves

  • EdoMadara

    Izuna….. are u still alive ?! no it cant be its a genjutsu or some thing ✇_✇ sharingan!

  • memphis

    looks good

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

    thats why i only got storm 2, it was unique.

  • WildfireZyra

    You guys are like a broken record

  • WildfireZyra

    Pts tenten not S tenten my main was ad always is S <3 pts was too damn op , they buffed her jutsu up from storm 1 for no reason and they nerfed S's ranged combos in s3 but when used well and combined with her awakening combos they can deal some dmggg but she s more then balanced andthe weakest between them all (S temari ad deidara are god like and utakata is an ass with the right support)

  • Sasori Nagashi

    NO. BAD IZUNA. BACK TO YOUR GRAVE.

  • Larry E. Powe Jr.

    BADASS!! I’M GETTING THIS GAME WHEN IT COMES OUT! AND I ALREADY PAID FULL PRICE BY PRE-ORDERING IT, TOO.

  • Obito Rikudou Sennin

    But I am a the creator of all shinobi……

  • Gabryel71

    In awakening, his grab is with Jirobou.

  • yourboss

    ur a talking spoiler GTFO

  • yourboss

    butthurt..

  • yourboss

    ur always butthurt

  • Vash bane

    mad me LOL

  • Rick Lee

    How

  • Sasori Nagashi

    Spoilers are only an issue for people too lazy to read a few words on a manga page and people that lazy don’t count as fans.

  • yourboss

    no i dont think so. ive been an anime only and that doesnt make “lazy” douche

  • Sasori Nagashi

    If you complain about spoilers it does moron

  • GrammarNazi

    He shamed.

  • Senay Habtemariam

    i no right

  • Sasori Nagashi

    In fact if you only watch the anime you don’t even know the true story, the anime edits so much of the manga and adds so much in filler it’s almost a difference series. So if you don’t read the manga you don’t even really know Naruto properly…

  • Senay Habtemariam

    look at this kabuto sage mode doesn’t get his own slot of with snake kabuto

  • Jay Thomas

    How much is it gunna cost

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Ehhhh nnnn I respect your opinion but storm 1 was way better, storm 2 had to be water down due to online and sharing consoles. The only good thing about storm 2 was Lars

  • uzumaki.girl

    How much is it gonna cost in Europe ?

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

    i’m not saying storm 2 was the best, i just meant i liked it better. storm was was pretty good. at least UJ were cooler and longer animated.

  • Sasuke

    the anime is pretty close to the books.

  • Sasuke

    its not terribly off but it is a little off sometimes
