A LOT of ninjas are in Naruto Ultimate Storm Generations


A whopping seventy-two of them, in fact, and that's just counting the playable characters. The number swells considerably when you look at support-only characters and move-set variations on the same character (there are, five versions of Sasuke alone). Pretty much everyone from the whole series capable of chucking some chakra is going to be in brawling it out Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations. Just look at the four-minute promo below. More ninjas than you can shake a shuriken at!

I’m excited already, and that’s not just because I regularly cover the show for our weekly Fighting Friday column. I reviewed the previous game, and it was, frankly speaking, one of the best licensed games - anime or otherwise - you could ask for. It’s gorgeous, accessible, and has, of all things, a great solo campaign as well. Even non-fans should give it a look.

The game comes out February in Japan and on March 13th and 30th in the US and Europe, respectively.
