'Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 3' for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Developed by CyberConnect 2, Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is expected out in North America in roughly a month and a half.  Jason Enos of Namco Bandai, the game's publishing company, is eagerly anticipating its March 5 release.

"[It's] right around the corner," he points out.  "We're about 60 days away."

Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 continues the Naruto Shippuden storyline from the previous Ninja Storm 2 video game.

"For fans, this is kinda getting to a very exciting point in the story," Enos explains.  "We are getting to a point where there is a huge battle ensuing between two rival factions -- the Ninja Alliance on one side and the other side, the evil side, called the Akatsuki Forces.  And they are building this devastating army and are trying to take over the world."

Players will get to experience the fighting game and its story not only through the eyes of Naruto, but as any of its 80-some-odd playable characters.  According to Namco Bandai, this is the largest roster of characters in a fighting game from the company to date.

In addition to the very large roster and a continued storyline from the previous game in the series, Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 will also support online play.  Jason Enos talks about this and more in the video presentation he did for's Game Guys, which runs for more than five minutes, where he also talks about the various pre-order programs that both Namco and a specific retailer are hosting for the game.

Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is rated "T for Teen" by the ESRB.
