“Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst Coming to PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 this Winter 2013

Franchise debut on PC brings tons of Ninja-powered enhancements to highly acclaimed title, with new retail pack and DLC coming for console players

It’s a red letter day for Naruto fans as Namco Bandai Games Europe announces the official debut of the explosive franchise on PC with Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst heading to the platform this winter 2013. The enhanced edition of the acclaimed title will also be available at retail for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, while existing owners of the console game will be able to download the new content as a DLC pack.

Originally released in March 2013 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 to wide critical and fan acclaim, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 has been given a thorough overhaul for its PC debut and console come back. Not least among the wealth of enhancements is the addition of the much anticipated chapter in which Sasuke and Itachi take on Kabuto in a nail-biting confrontation.

“We’re very excited to be bringing the incredible Naruto franchise to PC for the first time, while also bringing extra content to existing console fans of course,” said Olivier Comte, Senior Vice President, Namco Bandai Games Europe. “The Naruto games series goes from strength to strength, so it’s only right that we should let even more players enjoy it with this PC release.”

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst includes the following additional features

• Additional Chapter: Finally free of Kabuto’s control, Itachi intends to crack the Reanimation forbidden jutsu. Will an unprecedented Uchiha alliance with Sasuke be enough to handle it?

• New playable Character: Kabuto reaches the almighty Sage mode and is now playable in versus mode. Unleash his power and defeat your opponents both offline and online.

• Director’s Cut Edition: Discover completely revamped Storm 3 cinematics and experience more intensely than ever the epic conflict consuming the entire ninja world.

• 100 New Missions: Embark on a whole new series of missions, many with their own uniquely challenging objectives.

Random Game Facts – Donkey Kong Owned By Microsoft?

donkey kong microsoft fact Random Game Facts   Donkey Kong Owned By Microsoft?

Hmm kinda makes you wonder if Microsoft would’ve been as willing to buy Rare had they not thought Donkey Kong was included? I guess Microsoft didn’t pay a lot of attention to the industry prior to their joining it since Donkey Kong existed well before Rare ever got involved with the franchise.
