One of the beauties of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations is that it’s entirely up to you how you enjoy it.
The compelling Story Mode combines stunning cinematic cutscenes with frenzied battle action, as step by step you unfold the intersecting tales of the many playable characters. It’s magical, mesmerising and superbly evocative, not least due to the involvement of Studio Pierrot, the talented team behind the Naruto anime series.
If you fancy dipping in and out more spontaneously, choose a Free Battle to custom build a one-off fight, a series of survival matches, a tournament or a training session. The latter is a brilliant way to get to grips with the different characters and their various abilities before heading into the non-stop action of real combat.
The more you fight, the more collectible items and abilities you’ll unlock, all of which can be easily viewed from the main menu. You’ll also earn Ryo currency, which you can use to purchase new skills and Ninja Info Cards – all you need to give you the edge in future battles.
