As far as ‘Naruto’ games go, ‘Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution’ would have to be the most in-depth. At least that’s what it is slowly making itself out to be. Over the past few months we’ve been, let’s say, ‘bombarded’ with ‘UNSR’ news, all of which has been pretty exciting stuff! As time goes by, like any game, we’re shown more and more of it with Bandai Namco Games slowly but surely releasing little nuggets of information here there and everywhere, all of which is massively exciting especially if you’re a ‘Naruto’ fan. Now even though my love for the series has almost entirely diminished, I still find myself wanting to see more of this game. Whatever Bandai Namco and CyberConnect2 are doing…they’re doing it damn well!
The latest piece of ‘UNSR’ news comes in the form of a magazine scan portraying both Madara Uchiha as well as Hashirama Senju who is depicted in his ‘Sage Form’. This scan has confirmed that Hashirama will be playable in the new game alongside his ‘Sage Form’. Why is this news so exciting? Well Hashirama Senju, for those of you out there who aren’t ‘Naruto’ fans, is one of the many defining characters of the city. Not only was he the original Leaf Village leader (or ‘Hokage’), he did his best throughout his life to achieve peace in the ninja world and almost reached his goal too.
It’s unfortunate that Hashirama exists in a world entirely populated by shinobi; a combat class of humans trained to kill. ‘Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution’ is set for a worldwide release in September of this year on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, which gives you all plenty of time to study up on your ‘Naruto’ history and prepare for what is going to be one hell of a fighting game experience.
