Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Heroes 3 is an engaging fighting game that was based on the famous Japanese series and the same-name anime. In addition, this game is the sixth version of the Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja series. It was available on PlayStation Portable with the Japanese version on December 10, 2009, and an English version on May 11 in 2010.
Similar to the previous versions, this game also owns a diverse character system (allowing players to use up to 50 different characters) and owns separate plot system. The plot takes place after the Uchiha Sasuke’s event escaping from Konoha and having an intense battle with Naruto. Then, both Sasuke and Naruto had a journey to pursuit Uchiha Itachi (also known as Master’s Prophecy and Vengeance). In which, Sasuke formed a group, Hebi, to chase his brother. Naruto and Konoha’s members formed a unit, Team 8, to capture Itachi in order to bring Sasuke back to Konoha.
Basically, with a diverse fighting system of ninja warriors, Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Heroes 3 has many game modes, including Free Battle, Wireless Battle, Master Road, Pracice, and Filler Story Mode. In the modes, Free Battle is the simplest, and it allows you to freely choose many different characters to use. However, the character system is quite limited. Participating in this mode, players can only use certain characters, while other characters will be temporarily locked. You can only use all 50 characters after completing the plot challenges. Another interesting feature is that it allows four characters to participate in a battle on a map (fighting in groups, Player vs Player, Player vs COM). Master Road and Filler Story Mode will bring challenges according to a fixed mission system (according to the storyline). Practice is a training mode for players to explore the unique combat techniques.
In the game (played in groups or individually), players have to compete for a limited time. You have to defeat or deal a lot of damage to the enemy. In addition to the basic ninja fighting techniques, each character has a special skill system, and players will have to accumulate enough required energy to activate these skills.
