Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Gameplay
Namco Bandai stated that the game would feature a ‘more profound’ story and a combat system that is ‘aimed to further evolution’. Other than the usual form of Awakening, renamed Adversity Awakening, the game introduces a new element called Instant Awakening where players can go into awakening mode at any point during the battle, even in the middle of a combo. The down side of being in an Instant Awakened state is that it depletes a player’s chakra. If a player depletes their chakra completely while in an Instant Awakening, they will have to wait for a period before being able to charge their chakra. Also characters who are awakened can now be grabbed or hit by an ultimate technique.
Similar to Naruto Shippūden: Clash of Ninja Revolution 3, and other Naruto Wii games, characters can now be knocked out of the ring, but in this game, unless a support character is sacrificed, this always results in an automatic loss of the match. Also, there is stage destruction in addition to ring outs. There is a new addition in the Team Attack System as the player can now use their support characters to get ready to charge and attack. Also, support characters now have health bars and once their health is depleted, the support player can no longer be used and their body remain on the stage lifeless for a few seconds. If the player has one support character, it has ten health bars. If the player has two support characters, each has five health bars.
Boss battles also make their return to the game. The game also has the return of missions in Konoha during story mode. The story mode also features mob battles, similar to Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Impact. There is a new system known as “The Ultimate Decision”, where players are able to follow two different paths in the game which are the Legend and Hero paths. Legend path is mostly difficult in battles while Hero path is the opposite. Choosing a path gives a player good amount of points on the chosen path if the battle is completed.
