Ultimate Ninja Storm 3: Full Burst Brings Naruto Battles To PC

Announced yesterday during the Japan Expo in Paris, Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is getting an upgrade this winter, with fresh missions, enhanced visuals, a new playable character and — most importantly — a PC version.

Namco Bandai is calling this enhanced version of the last instalment of CyberConnect2's long-running franchise Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 3: Full Burst. The new installemnt pads the already lengthy storm mode with a new chapter, pitting the Uchiha brothers against new playable character Sage Mode Kabuto. There'll be 100 new missions to keep players occupied, revamped cinematics, and all 38 DLC costumes will be included in the pack as well.

The fresh content (sans costumes) will be available as a downloadable add-on for owners of the original game on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

The coolest news, however, is the debut of the series on PC. This is not the sort of title I'd ever expected to see make the trip to my platform of choice, and even though I played through the original on PlayStation 3, I can't wait to do it all over again on my gaming rig.

It's a sign of the times, my friends. The lines between console and PC are blurring more every day, as more publishers slip across the border from console country. It's where the flavour is.


    I'm extremely pleased at this. It means we'll also probably see some mods, even if they're just texmod or FXAA injection type mods. Gonna be so good~

    Sweet! Since I've traded my 360 for a Xbox1 I got my backup PC in the lounge. Ill buy this for that :D

    Urrrg Namco Bandai, so we'll pay twice as much here in Australia than the rest of the world. They're the guys who forced CD Red Project to region price The Witcher 2.

    Well atleast I don't have to buy some new game to get this content. This sage mode kabuto looks interesting... I don't really keep up with the story through the anime or manga so I'll be going into that part blind.

    Good to see this coming as DLC. This battle was a highlight of mine in the manga.
