Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3

The third numbered game in the Ultimate Ninja Storm series promises an in-depth story mode and upgraded battle system.

Overview

The story covers various events such as Kurama's attack on Konoha and the Fourth Shinobi World War. Many long-deceased friends and foes reappear as undead minions, controlled by Kabuto, who is partnered with Tobi.

The game sports DLC, including at least costumes. One such costume, which is also a pre-order bonus, is one of DragonBall's Goku for Naruto.
