UPDATE: The PS3 and Xbox 360 European release date for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst has been confirmed as 25 October
The US release date for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst has been set for 22 October, with the game being available as a digital download from that date on both PS3 and Xbox 360. The disc version will be available on the same day. In addition, gamers who already own the original Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 will be able to get all the extra content included with Full Burst by downloading an upgrade pack from PlayStation Network or Xbox Live. A price for the Full Burst upgrade DLC will be confirmed at a later date.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst is an enhanced version of the original, introducing a host of new features to the game. You can find a full list of the new content after this Full Burst trailer:
New content coming with Full Burst:
- Additional Chapter: Finally free of Kabuto’s control, Itachi intends to crack the Reanimation forbidden jutsu. Will an unprecedented Uchiha alliance with Sasuke be enough to handle it?
- New playable Character: Kabuto reaches the almighty Sage mode and is now playable in versus mode. Unleash his power and defeat your opponents both offline and online
- Director’s Cut Edition: Discover completely revamped Storm 3 cinematics and experience more intensely than ever the epic conflict consuming the entire ninja world
- 100 New Missions: Embark on a whole new series of missions, many with their own uniquely challenging objectives
- 38 Additional Costumes: Outfit characters in a selection of 38 costumes from the NARUTO Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 DLC packs. Note: Costumes aren’t Full Burst exclusive and therefore not part of the Full Burst DLC
No word on a European release date yet, but we’re hoping to hear something from the game’s publisher, Namco Bandai, soon and will update this story when we do.
