Naruto Storm 3 Full Burst: Minato and the Instant Awakening Bug

Naruto Storm 3 Full Burst hit retailers just last week in many places around the world and on DLC. The game is an improved version of the original Storm 3, but it still has some minor bugs here and there. One of which is an instant awakening bug featuring Minato and kid Sasuke at the Great Snowfield of Iron stage. What’s the bug? Pretty much knocking the opponent out of the ring barrier without ending the match. This allows for players to continue the match, but from a different camera angel.

Saiyan Island has created a quick tutorial on how to do this below. YouTube user TheFightingDreamer93 has created five videos that show off the bug with all the instant awakening characters. The first minute and 15 seconds of video 1 shows how it’s done as a supplement to our textual tutorial.

Of course there is no true purpose for the tutorial and bug video. The possibility of this happening in a ranked online match is 0% since there are no ring outs. But amongst friends, it might be something fun to try!

1. Select Minato as the playable character and kid Sasuke as support for player 1.
2. Select an instant awakening character as player 2 with any supports
4. Select a stage where ring outs are possible, for example the Great Snowfield of Iron.
5. As player 1(Minato), Rasengan player 2 until the stage ring barrier breaks
6. Once the barrier is broken, player 2 should instant awaken
7. Player 1 (Minato), call support character kid Sasuke and quickly instant awaken and launch an awakening action
8. If step 6 was done correctly, player 2 should fall out outside of the barrier, but not the ring
9. Player 1 (Minato) must launch another awakening action, while player 2 should do a substitution jutsu
10. Now the match can begin from a different perspective!
