Naruto Storm 3: Air Rasengan, Naruto vs Hinata, Guy vs Shikamaru

The guys over at the NUNS3 Facebook page had the opportunity to meet Namco Bandai Games Senior Global Brand Manager, Jason Enos! In the background the game’s footage is rolling and you can see Guy vs Shikamaru and Naruto vs Hinata! At around the 2:46 mark, Naruto does what looks to be an air Rasengan! It doesn’t look like it’s part of a combo, but rather it seems as if he freely jumps in the air, gathers chakra like he would normally, and fires down a Rasengan!

The interview also gives a clearer look at the stage select and character select screens revealed the other day. For Shikamaru we can see his ultimate jutsu is Shadow Pull Jutsu and his normal jutsu is Shadow Stitching Jutsu.


Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is Namco Bandai Games and CyberConnect2’s fourth entry in the Storm series. It will be available for the Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 in North America and South America on March 5, Europe and 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.
