Namco Bandai has today announced that Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 will be heading to Europe and Australasia this March, heralding the arrival of more anime-based brawling with the most extensive character roster yet, consisting of more than 80 playable characters.

Advanced online modes and enhanced fight mechanics are also promised for Naruto SUNS 3, with a story mode, online multiplayer modes and one-on-one battles.

First-run 'Day One Edition' copies of the game will also include an exclusive trading card in the box and a download code for a Dragon Ball Z Goku costume. Namco Bandai advises pre-ordering to secure your Day One Edition copy, but then they would say that, wouldn't they?

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 will be coming to Europe and Australasia on March 8th, 2013. Check out the latest trailers below.

I wish CyberConnect2 would make a DBZ game in the way they do the Naruto games. These Ninja Storm games are amazing, but I don't like Naruto.

CyberConnect2, why no Asura's Wrath 2? I would love a second game, even though the true ending didn't leave a lot of room for one.

Speaking of DBZ, I wonder what this years DBZ game will be...
I think Cyberconnect2 should make a Fairy Tail fighting game, it would be SWEET!

#10 Hey yeah will be nice if they bring 2nd series of Asura's Wrath. But I think Capcom will not want this franchise returns anytime soon or future because first one got bad sales. Surprise that Dragon's Dogma got good sales so Capcom want working for 2nd series. It's seem like Capcom not want Cyberconnect to make Asura's Wrath 2. But Capcom is pleased with Asura's Wrath got great story as they enjoyed with it but problem with sale point so maybe or not Asura's Wrath will ever returns. We have wait and see so maybe it is be returns on next Xbox or PS4 or even Wii U or even again on all of those consoles. :P

@16 I would love them to do bleach, one piece and fairytale but its unlikely, japanese devs have done them for ps3 and wii but they dont seem tok keen on putting them over to 360, which sucks for us unfortunately :(

They're set to release alongside the story, it's as simple as that. I can't wait for it.

Three days after my birthday with Tomb Raider on my birthday, I love March for gaming. I've picked up the Limited Edition for every possible Naruto game that has been released, not sure which edition I should get here, they both look amazing O_O

@21 : Well, as @10 said, the ending didn't leave any room for a sequel, though I won't spoil it.

They could still do a prequel, but I don't think that would be very interesting for this kind of game (I'm not interested in a prequel of this game, personally).

The problem of Asura's Wrath is that they shouldn't have done it on a disc, but rather as an XBLA game. I think most peoples don't want to pay the full price for a game with only a few hours of play and lot of cinematics.

Personally, a friend lent me the game and I liked it but I would have never bought it at full price (but I would have bought it at a 20$ price).

And a lower price isn't always a bad thing for a company. Vgchartz says it sold 370,000 copies. If you do, for example, 370.000 x 50$ = 18,500,000$.

If you sell it at 20$, but sell at least 1.000.000 of copies, you get "20,000,000$" (and more profits if you only sell it as a digital game).

#24 Yeah you got point. Sometime publishers not want bring some of their franchise returns one day anymore because it's low sales. I weren't sure if Capcom want Asura's Wrath 2 but I do want to see it either sequel or prequel. Yes endings got to be feel there left for space for next game. :)
