Without a doubt Naruto was considered to be one of the most popular anime series to have been released worldwide during the 2000’s. While the Naruto anime series was very popular the video games released for the Nintendo GameCube and the Wii were also really exciting for many people. Out of most of the games released for the Nintendo Wii Naruto Shippuden: Clash of Ninja Revolution 3 is probably considered to be among the best. Naruto Shippuden: Clash of Ninja Revolution 3 was developed by Eighting and published by Tomy prior to its Wii release in 2009. Clash of Ninja Revolution 3 was a significant improvement from the prequel that was released in 2008. Naruto Shippuden: Clash of Ninja Revolution 3 had included a roster of at least 40 playable characters and had around 19 different stages that would provide players with many hours of fun. The story mode in Clash of Revolution 3 was exciting for some and frustrating for other people. Even it one was a true Naruto fan the missions that one is expected to complete in story mode can seem impossible at times and requires trial and error to make progress in the game.
Along with having a story mode Clash of Ninja Revolution 3 had featured several other gameplay options including versus, tag team and online mode. The tag team mode was very exciting because certain characters can execute special double team special moves when paired together such as Naruto & Jiraiya, Hinata & Neji Hyuga, Gaara & Rock Lee along with Sakura & Tsunade. Rock Lee was especially fun to play as because he also have a tag team special with Might Guy which in someways makes up for the fact that he uses mostly Tai- Jitsu during battle. The multiplayer mode was probably the most exciting feature of all since it allowed up to four players to battle against one another simultaneously with graphics and visual effects highly resembling that of the actual anime. If one was not too skilled with using the Wii remote and nunchuck during gameplay they always at the option to play using a GameCube or Wii controller. Even though, some people many not put Naruto Shippuden: Clash of Ninja 3 above PlayStation’s Ultimate Ninja Storm series in terms of quality it was still a very good Naruto game for the Wii console with a replay value that was just as high.
