SDCC 2012: Beware the Coming ‘Ultimate Ninja Storm 3′

Namco Bandai announces a second sequel to the Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm series during SDCC.

More details about this anime-based fighter after the jump.

The next game based on the long-running anime and manga is on the way from publisher Namco Bandai in 2013 for the 360 and PS3. They must be really happy with the work that developer CyberConnect2 has done for them up to this point, because that team returns for Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, bringing what looks like more of the same vibrant, pulled-from-the-anime art style to the fighter.

As for the story, as ever it’s a series of fights woven throughout series continuity, broken up by boss battles with featured characters from the show.

The first demo for the game is available on the San Diego Comic-Con show floor at the Namco Bandai booth (#5136).
