Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 3, known in Japan as Naruto: Narutimate Hero 3 (NARUTO-ナルト- ナルティメットヒーロー3, Naruto: Narutimate Hero 3?), is the third installment in the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja series. The game was released on December 22, 2005 in Japan, and an American release is set for March 26, 2008.[5] This game features the largest roster in the Ultimate Ninja series. You may play as 42 charecters. All characters from the Japanese version will be carried over to the English version. The game follows up to the Sasuke Retrieval Arc. There will also be equipable jutsu like the second game. When two jutsu of the same strength clash, the game cuts to a mini-game, in which the player will have to press a button repeatedly, until either jutsu wins out over the other. In this installment, the player will be able to both induce temporary transformations (like Cursed Mark LV1) through special jutsu, and other, more permanent ones, that last the entire rest of the fight (like Curse Mark LV2). In addition, this installment only features three to four cutscene, unlike the previous installments. Like the previous installment, this game also has an RPG mode, but unlike Ultimate Ninja 2's RPG, this game's RPG will enable you to jump on buildings and will have a larger map, although the only place outside of Konoha that can be accessed will be Tanzaku Town.


In the Ultimate Ninja line, the player controls one of the many characters seen within the Naruto anime and manga. The simple goal is to fight the opposing character and to win by reducing their health to zero. The catch to this goal is the vast amount of weapons that appear to the characters as the battle progresses (along with items which could potentially heal the player or the opponent). Unlike the Clash of Ninja series, which is similar to Street Fighter; Ultimate Ninja is more of an arena based battle, similar to Super Smash Bros. Along with the various weapons available to the characters, they also have their various special abilities taken straight from the series (Naruto Uzumaki's Rasengan or Sasuke Uchiha's Chidori, for example). To use these attacks, however, the player must have the required chakra as indicated by the "chakra bars" located under the players health. Using the technique drains the chakra bar (which can be regained through various methods, including special, character specific methods for some characters). These special techniques are not performed in real-time, however; once successfully executed, a cinematic takes place, where the player either has to fill a bar to a specific level or hit buttons illustrated in the corner of the screen faster than their opponent to assure the attack is at its full strength. All characters can use the substitution jutsu (two variants of which exist; one which evades normal attacks, and another which begins a tug-of-war like minigame after juggling an opponent). Also, some characters have specific transformations available to them (such as Sasuke's Curse Mark of Heaven with the right amount of chakra (or, in the later games, by successfully executing their special technique). The first few games of the Ultimate Ninja series let players execute 3 different secret technique Attacks using three different Chakra levels (red, purple, and blue, in order of weakest to strongest), 2 different signature techniques, and a wide variety of kicks, punches, and throws. However, in Ultimate Ninja 3, players are only allowed to use one secret technique attack, besides the other attacks and techniques. To compensate for this, players will be allowed to select the secret technique of their choice before each battle, but not all secret techniques will be made available at the start of the game. Different secret techniques must be obtained through story mode and completing missions.
