70+ characters to play AND over an hour of new anime means win for NARUTO SHIPPUDEN Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations from Namco Bandai!  Naruto’s latest was developed by CyberConnect2 who most recently came out with Asura’s Wrath – both games extremely gorgeous to look at and fun to play.

One can see from the start that extreme care has been taken with the Naruto license.   The story mode will let you play as Naruto during three different times (ages) in his life — or in different parts of the series.  There’s original anime created specifically for this game and much of it fills in some back-story to the show not seen before.  Characters in this game are from Storm 1, Storm 2 as well as new additions to the mix – if you are a fan of the show then you will find a good mix of characters to play.

Naruto Generations is geared for younger gamers – it was actually refreshing to see strong characters both male and female dressed in appropriate clothing and having a variety of fighting abilities and powers.  Most ‘grown up’ fighting games these days are way too hung up on muscle bound males or scantily-clad women fighters – Naruto is ‘kid safe’.

Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations is available now for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 from Namco Bandai.  We’ve provided sample gameplay video to showcase some of the early events in Naruto Generations so be sure to check those out.  The game might not be for every gamer out there as the material is rather specific to Naruto fans and 3D world fighting gaming but with that said – this could easily be hailed as the best Naruto video game experience yet!
