Video Game: Naruto Shippuden Ultimateninja Storm Revolution
Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution is a videogame, being the sequel to Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3. It is a part of the Naruto franchise's Naruto: Ultimate Ninja: Storm subseries developed by CyberConnect2. The game will be released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles in September 2014, as well as PC plaforms such as Steam. It was first announced in Shonen Jump during the week of November 27, 2013. The game will feature 118 playable characters, including a new roster addition drawn by Masashi Kishimoto himself.

New to this this entry in the series are new types of specific battle systems, 3 in total: A version where a character can only use Ultimate Jutsus (including the new Team based ultimate jutsus), another where a character can only use awakening actions (now expanded to two awakenings instead of just one) and another where the character can only use support type moves. Also new is a special tournament mode, with it's own story arc made specifically for the game, with Mecha Naruto to have a role, in which one player fights 3 other CPU's at the same time.

Tropes the game provides include:

  • Arm Cannon: Mecha Naruto has miniguns in its arms as well as Finger Firearms.
  • Battle in the Center of the Mind: With Ino's help, Naruto and Hinata enter Mecha Naruto's mind to free him from KYUBI-Mode's control.
  • Bilingual Bonus: Mecha Naruto has the number 7610 on his forehead. If you split it up as 7-6-10, these numbers can be read in Japanese as Na, ryu and tou, which sounds nearly identical to Naruto.
  • But Thou Must: In the Ninja World Tournament during the Ally Event with Deidara and Sasori, you have to say they're both weak, or the one who you didn't say was better will keep fighting you until you pick that option (and saying both are strong will just make them throw the question at you again), though you will need to fight them both at once one last time before they join.
  • Call Back: In the English version, Mecha-Naruto shouts Naruto's old catchphrase, "Believe it!", after firing his Naruto Beam. Does it too with "Dattebayo" in the japanese version, but he never stopped using it.
  • Colon Cancer: Again, like a few of its predecessors, the title manifests as Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja: Storm: Revolution, again with the optional colon that can be situated prior to the term Shippuden.
    • Minato does it with his techniques names with over long and convoluted names like "Flying Raijin: Jiku Shippu Senko Rennodan Zeroshiki"
  • Combination Attack: Revolution will introduce "Combination Ultimate Jutsu", where certain fighter/support configurations can use signature combo attacks.
  • Covers Always Spoil: While the original cover had Tobi wearing his War Mask, the updated cover reveals his identity as Obito Uchiha while also showing the Edo Tensei Hokage, Minato's Nine Tailed Chakra Mode, and Sakura's Strength of a Hundred Seal.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Sakura, Hinata, Ino, and Tenten go barefoot in their summer clothes.
  • Enemy Mine: In the trailer for Mecha Naruto, the real Naruto teams up with Sasuke to defeat the mechanized menace.
  • Expy: Word of God is that Mecha Naruto is an expy of Mechagodzilla.
  • Fandom Nod: Mecha Naruto calls his organic counterpart "Naruturd", which sounds similar to "Narutard", a popular insult from detractors of the series.
  • Flash Step: All of the ninja can do this, but special mention goes to newcomer Shisui Uchiha.
  • Four Is Death: Coinciding with how "4" and "9" are unlucky numbers in Japan, Mecha Naruto's KYUBI-Mode includes the number "9999" (four nines) on its headband.
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: Mecha-Naruto pulls one on the real Naruto after becoming angry at how the other villagers were accepting him but not it.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams/Eye Beams: "Naruto Beam!"
  • Improbable Weapon User: In a game where people use their fists and ninja tools for close combat, Kushina uses...A frying pan.
  • Instant Awesome, Just Add Mecha: Mecha Naruto and Mecha Kurama.
  • Killer Robot: The beginning of Mecha Naruto's trailer opens with shots of destruction and devastation.
  • Legion of Doom: The entirety of the Akatsuki except Zetsu is playable.
  • Numbered Sequel: The second Aversion in the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja: Storm subseries, with the first being Generations.
  • One-Winged Angel: The two known ones are Naruto's Tailed Beast Mode and Mecha Naruto combining into Mecha Kurama.
    • After 4 games, Gaara's awakening has finally been changed to Shukaku.
      • And with unmasked Obito's awakening as the Ten Tails second form, and Kurama-link-Naruto's awakening being chakra Kurama, this means that all tailed beasts are playable in this game.
  • Robot Me: Mecha Naruto, who is stuffed full of enough weapons to make Pain's Asura Path jealous.
  • Rocket Punch: More like Rocket Rasengan! Mecha Kurama has a more traditional Rocket Punch.
  • Ship Tease: Naruto and Hinata have the 'Secret Lovers' title. Yet again. War Hinata and Bijuu Naruto get the "Hold my hand" title instead.
    • Basically the whole Mecha-Naruto's story mode is a huge Ship Tease for Naruto and Hinata.
  • Series Continuity Error:
    • At the time of Nagato's conversion into Pain, Tobi should have been wearing Guruguru, but in the "Creation of the Akatsuki" plot line in the game he is instead wearing his spiral mask.
    • According to the manga, Deidara and Hidan were recruited after Orochimaru's defection, but in the game Hidan is recruited with Orochimaru's assistance immediately following Deidara's recruitment by Itachi. Also, the manga mentions that Hidan was partnered up with Kakuzu because Kakuzu kept killing partners in a fit of a rage, not only was Hidan chosen from the start, the original akatsuki were only those ten and never had any other members.
  • Shout-Out: Mecha Kurama has a Spiral Engine and can turn its arms into drills. Also, its shape seems like a combination from Mazinger Z, Getter Robo and Gaiking.
  • Split Personality Take Over: After Mecha Naruto recovers its memories, its KYUUBI-Mode reactivates and attacks.
  • Stock Subtitle: Revolution. Somewhat glaring in that the only seventh-generation home console that is apparently not receiving the game is the Nintendo Wii (whose Code Name was "Nintendo Revolution", causing many Wii games to receive said subtitle).
  • This Is a Drill: Mecha Kurama can rotate its hands like drills. Shisui's Susanoo also has a flaming drill for a sword.
  • Too Dumb to Live: The scene in the trailer showing how Orochimaru was recruited to Akatsuki shows him lunging at Pain's Deva Path in an attempt to take its Rinnegan. Pain simply blasts him with Shinra Tensei. One has to wonder what Orochimaru expected would happen.
  • Taking You with Me: KYUBI-Mode activates Mecha-Naruto's self destruct after being defeated.
  • Teleport Spam: Minato, as usual. Taking it Up to Eleven in this game.
  • Transforming Mecha: Mecha Naruto, who has a three-tailed KYUBI-Mode and can combine with Mecha Kurama as a second Awakening.
  • Tsundere: Mecha Naruto's Normal Mode displays this attitude towards Hinata and Naruto.
  • Unexpected Character: Mecha Naruto, Shisui Uchiha (Itachiís best friend), Kushina Uzumaki, Nine-Tails Chakra Mode Minato, Konohamaru, and Iruka.
  • What If?: The Ninja World Tournament Story mode is a "What if all the Badasses from every part of the continuity meet on amicable terms to decide who the strongest is?" The Mecha-Naruto story is a "What if in this same tournament, Naruto and Hinata found a robotic replica of Naruto?" Also, the game came with a pre-order animation that was "What if Itachi decided to abuse his Mangekyo Sharingan to make Sasuke the perfect sunny-side up eggs?"
  • Wave Motion Gun: Mecha-Naruto's Ultimate Jutsu transforms him into a Chakra Cannon.
