  • Players who follow the story in Master mode will find the familiar gameplay has been greatly enhanced with new fighting styles for Naruto, brand new 3-man cell gameplay making full use of special abilities, and the ability to boost character stats for the first time as well as add equipment and upgrade Jutsus.

    During battle players will also be able to select a partner character to join them in battle, which will increase your chance of victory. Selecting the right partner will give players the chance for special team-based Jutsus and Ougis adding more tactical decisions to the gameplay. You can also play as other characters to see the world from their eyes!

    With a versus mode containing over 60 playable characters and 24 battle stages, NARUTO Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja 5 boasts the largest content of all the games in the series so far. Players will be able to select from amongst their favourite characters and do battle either against the AI or take on a friend in punishing one-on-one ninja combat. Players will also have a lot to find and unlock with countless collectibles and an in-game shop.

    The game is being developed by CyberConnect 2 and will features both Japanese audio as well as localization in five other languages.

    • IceDragonHikari

    • Narutoaddict

      this game is so nice and my gosh i only bought the cd for a very cheap price…im so lucky.. =)

    • supermcawsomevill

      Wll this game is not comming out to the USA but if you have a ps3 you can play still play it.

    • Donaldmerritt59

      people say the reason it has not been released in the US is that it did not get high enough sales ,but that is because it has not been released in the US ,for if it was the sales would almost double and that is what the company has failed to realize. Then again they are also looking at the sales of the previous game Naruto ultimate ninja 4 which i have not yet bought because i have been waiting for # 5 to come out ,but apparently it has a high chance of not coming out in the US.
