CyberConnect2 and Namco Bandai Games have recently announced that Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, based on the famous manga running in Shounen Jump manga (which also has an anime running parallel), has shipped 1.2 million copies of the game worldwide according to Inside Games.
Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 shipped at the beginning of March for North America and Europe, and just recently for Japan. So these are some pretty good numbers indeed. So good that Namco Bandai says it’s the most successful launch in the franchise. Considering the franchise consists of 12 games thus far, that’s not too bad
The amount of content jam-packed into the game might have helped its cause, since it features more than 80 characters from the currently running arcs in the anime, focusing especially on the Fourth Great Ninja War, the Nine Tails Demon Fox attacking Konoha (which features the Yellow Flash) and a battle with Uchiha Madara. Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is currently available for Xbox 360 and PS3.
