As voted by the community, here's the final Edo Kage Gameplay Video for Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution! The Third Raikage, current Raikage's father, was once ruling Kumogakure. His strength and lightning speed were hardly matched by his fellow ninjas! Third Raikage's pride was once brought to the ground when he fought the 8-Tails Bijû; no one dares to ask him about this fight.
In total, the latest installment from the “Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm” franchise will have over 100 characters. The upcoming title is only slated for the PS3 and Xbox 360 console despite the recent launches of the PS4 and Xbox One. Bandai Namco Games also did not confirm a PC port although the previous game was eventually ported to personal computers.
“Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution” is due to come out this fall season in Japan. The North American release should be set in the same launch window.
