''NarutoShippudenUltimateNinjaStorm3'' is the sequel to ''NarutoShippudenUltimateNinjaStormGenerations'' and is part of the ''Franchise/{{Naruto}}'' franchise's ''Naruto: Ultimate Ninja: Storm'' subseries developed by Creator/CyberConnect2. The game is slated for release in the United States on March 5, 2013, in Europe on March 8, 2013, and in Japan on April 18, 2013.

Gameplay enhancements include an updated Story Mode with in-game cutscenes like (''NarutoShippudenUltimateNinjaStorm2'') with more emphasis on cinematics in the storyline than before, a ''Franchise/MassEffect''-styled decision system called "The Ultimate Decision" (which lets players alter the outcome of certain storylines), and HackAndSlash-styled gameplay from the PlayStationPortable game ''Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Impact'', which are now main storyline forms of gameplay.

General gameplay enhancements include updated [[LimitBreak Super attacks]] for the characters, plus a new LagCancel called "Awakening Cancel" -- when attacking, a quick usage of Awakening during a combo (which can now be used anytime instead of needing to lose a specific amount of health) will cancel the current combo and the character will use a main combo exclusive to their Awakening move. Awakenings now have different actions and techniques as opposed to just one, and now don't just rely on the [[ManaMeter Chakra meter]].

!! Tropes the game provides include:
* AcCENTUponTheWrongSylLABle: The way the game pronounces the name Kurama. It's proper pronunciation is "Koo-rah-mah", the dub pronounces it "Koo-roo-mah".
** This happens other time, like with the Rinnegan. The pronunciation is "Ren-Ay-Gan", the dub pronounces it "Ren-E-Gan", like one would pronounce "Renegade" in English.
* AmericanKirbyIsHardcore: The western version includes blood, the Japanese version doesn't.
* ArtEvolution: The overall graphics are much more cinematic then they were in previous ''Storm'' titles, and in-game models look somewhat sketchier as a result.
* BattleCouple: Naruto and Hinata are listed as "Secret Lovers" when placed on a team.
* BloodlessCarnage: In the Japanese version, and any other version if one chooses to "turn off" the more graphic natures of battle. Otherwise, see AmericanKirbyIsHardcore above.
* ColonCancer: Again, like a few of its predecessors, the title manifests as ''Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja: Storm 3''.
* EvilOverlooker: The Western boxart features ''three'', with Tobi, Sasuke, and Kabuto''s heads watching Naruto from behind.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: Quoting the back of the box:
-->"Biggest roster ever, 80+ Playable characters."
* LongTitle
* MarthDebutedInSmashBros.: [[spoiler:Madara]] truly debuts in this game as a playable character, and the anime in the dub is nowhere near his arrival. Neither was the anime in Japan at the time of the game's release.
* {{Nerf}}: Awakenings received their own form of this, as they no longer prevent Ultimate Jutsu and grab attacks from making contact. Better yet, Ultimate Jutsu now cancels the opponent's Awakening. Makes sense, in case one uses it against someone like B.
** Support characters were also nerfed, as they now possess a Life Gauge, and thus, anytime they [[TakingTheBullet block an Ultimate Jutsu]] for you, they take the damage. When they take too much, they die, and remain lifeless on the field.
* NonIndicativeName: The game's title has "3" in the name, yet it's the ''fourth'' game in the ''Naruto: Ultimate Ninja: Storm'' subseries.
* NoExportForYou: Not the game itself, but some DLC with goes with it are only available in Japan and Europe. Fans were not pleased.
* NumberedSequel: The game is titled ''Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm '''3''''', despite technically being the ''fourth'' game in the ''Naruto Ultimate Ninja: Storm'' series. The actual third game in the series is the game's predecessor, ''NarutoShippudenUltimateNinjaStormGenerations''.
* OurZombiesAreDifferent: Fundamentally different from the series in gameplay only, a Reanimated character, with the exception of Itachi, [[spoiler: Madara]] and Nagato, the former who has a completely new moveset, the latter two don't have "living" versions to function as a new skin for, all reanimated characters act as they would if alive, making the "reanimation" purely aesthetic and nothing more.
* PragmaticAdaptation: To keep from spoiling the manga and to allow for the aftergame to exist, the game's ending sees the fourth ninja war end after [[spoiler: Naruto breaks Tobi's mask, and instead of the reveal of Tobi being Obito, he just retreats]], ending the story on a completely happy note as opposed to the manga and anime, where the war is still ongoing.
* PressXToNotDie: This feature has returned from Storm 3 (it was missing in Generations), and it keeps you geared for more.
* PromotedFanboy: In-game, in the post-game, Naruto can actually convince Kakashi (via letter) to continue Jiraiya's Make-Out series. Yes, Naruto can convince Kakashi to write porn novels.
* PosthumousNarration: Like Generations, the narrator is Hiruzen Sarutobi, the Third Hokage, who died fairly early on in the series.
* ShipTease: Naruto and Hinata have the infamous 'Secret Lovers' thing.
* ShoutOut: The [[Manga/DragonBall Goku]] costume, which can only be used by Naruto.
** And with the Goku costume on, he uses the Rasengan with two hands like the [[KamehameHadouken Kamehameha]].
** Mifune's special combos resemble [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Hakumen's]] specials while Hanzo's appear similar to [[VideoGame/GuiltyGear Axl Low's]] specials, while Han's (the 5 Tails Jinchuriki) attacks resemble [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Iron Tager's]].
** Naruto's [[spoiler: Final punch done in the last boss fight against Tobi]] is similar to the last punch done by [[spoiler: Asura to Chakravartin in ''VideoGame/AsurasWrath'']]
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Reaches ''absurd'' levels here; Naruto ends up pulling off a suplex on [[spoiler:'''The Nine Tailed Fox''' during his fight with it!]].
