Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is the latest game based on the Naruto anime. The plot’s focus is on shippuden events starting from episode 197. The world is on the brink of a ninja war, and at the center of it is Naruto and Sasuke. The leaders from each village try to negotiate while a shadowy figure does what he can to manipulate Sasuke for his own gain.
The game does nothing to provide context to any potential players that are unfamiliar with the series. The game assumes the player is entirely familiar with past events. As a result this game caters to Naruto fans spectacularly while dismissing anybody else. However is there hope for newcomers interested in this game?
