NARUTO: Ultimate Ninja 3 strikes players with nine fox tails worth of fun while providing a series of firsts for the franchise. Fans of the show can re-live their favorite fights that defined Story Arc 1 while newcomers can learn important story information in Hero’s History mode. Ninjas-in-training can customize their favorite characters with Ultimate Jutsu, giving them an important edge in battle while upgrading their strength, defense, chakra, and agility. Have your ninjas grow to unprecedented size or summon giant allies to turn the tides of battle in Summoning Mode.

Held on April 18 through April 20, registered New York Comic Con attendees can show their skills in the way of Jutsu in the newest addition to the Ultimate Ninja library. There can only be one ultimate ninja. Is it you?

Come test your NARUTO: Ultimate Ninja 3 skills at the NAMCO BANDAI Games America booth (Booth #1213) in the Jacob K. Javits Center in Midtown Manhattan. Starting on Friday 4/18, sixteen player single elimination tournaments will be held throughout the day and will run throughout the entirety of the show. Many prizes will be given away with the top honor of Ultimate Ninja being bestowed to the winner of each tournament. The schedule* for the tournament times is:

  1. Friday, April 18 - 4:00 P.M., 5:30 P.M. and 7:00 P.M.
  2. Saturday, April 19 - 11:00 A.M., 1:00 P.M. and 5:00 P.M.
  3. Sunday, April 20 - 11:00 A.M. and 1:00 P.M.

Tournament schedule is subject to change on the day of the event.

Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 3 makes monumental leaps in the franchise with a host of "firsts" for the series. Players can now live through and be a part of all the major events that defined Story Arc 1 in Heroes History mode. Also, ninja-in-training can customize their characters with the Ultimate Jutsu which gives them that extra bit of edge during battle and allows them to earn points towards upgrading their strength, defense, chakra, agility and other special abilities. Turn playable characters into more powerful ninja of unprecedented size or summon giant creatures as allies with the new Summoning mode. In addition, Naruto fans throughout North America can experience the game in both English and original Japanese voice over.

In keeping with the tradition of the series, an exclusive and original story will have players exploring the massive 3D rendered Hidden Leaf Village, participating in battle royale matches and completing more than 55 missions. The unparalleled experience doesn't stop there as tons of unlockable content will be available to offer loads of replay value including movies, music and cards.

Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 3, rated “T” for teen, will be available in March 25, 2008 exclusively for the PS2 for an MSRP of $39.99.
