Warning this post contains spoilers from the Naruto Shippuden Manga and Anime.
This may not be a new trailer but it is one that I missed at its time of release, the latest Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution trailer was released about a month ago but it was also the games E3 trailer. The trailer looks at two of the new stories that will appear in the game.
First off the trailer shows the Birth of the Akatsuki, the group of 10 ninja’s that are the villains through Naruto Shippuden. These Ten SS level Shinobi work together in an attempt to gain the power of the nine tailed beasts that roam the lands. While the true masterminds of the Akatsuki are not revealed until late on the series both Obito Uchiha/Tobi and Madra Uchiha will appear in the game.
The trailer also looks at the untold story of Itachi and Shisui Uchiha. As members of the Anbu black ops these two Uchiha had to do everything in their power to show the rest of the Uchiha clan from revolting and taking control of Konoha. Fan of the series will know the ending of the story as Itachi ended up wiping out the rest of his clan going undercover in the Akatsuki. The massacre of the Uchiha clan plays a big part through out Naruto and Naruto Shippuden and is the event that awakens the darkness in Sasuke.
A third story will also play out throughout the game focusing on Naruto’s mother, Kushina Uzamaki, and father, Minato Namikaze the Fourth Hokage. The story will also involve Minato’s former team made up of Kakashi, Rin and Obito. This new story will see the first appearance of Kushina as a playable character. Kushina was the second Jinchūriki of Kurama the Nine Tailed Fox suggesting she will be an extremely powerful fighter in the game.
Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm will include over 100 playable ninja’s including Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, all the Akatsuki members with new costumes designed by series creator Masashi Kishimoto, the Edo Kages and the four Hokage including a sage version of Minato. The game will be availalbe on PS3 and Xbox 360 sometime in September.
Who do you want to see fight it out? I always enjoy seeing Madra Uchiha and Hashirama Senju battle it out although pitting Kushina and Minato against Obito/ Tobi will be fun.
