Wierd but true, Namco-Bandai is experimenting with a unqiue way to give out preorder bonuses. Instead of getting them from the gamestore you get them from a website instead.

Considering that the preorder bonus is a kickass random figure from the Naruto series 4 set it's a pretty sweet deal. Naruto, Sasuke, Kakashi, Haku, Itachi and Jiraiya which one will you obtain?

The only thing is it seems you have to have Preordered from EB games/ Gamestop so I might be out of luck having preordered from Amazon.ca :(

Good news, I just found out it dosn't matter which store you preordered it now, you can still get the bonus item mailed to you anyhow!
Pretty sweet since Canadian's like me usually miss out on this sort of thing.

public service info to save YOU money

I have heard disturbing reports from friends of mine down in the states and from message boards about people going to preorder the game and putting down $49.99 on it.

Why is this disturbing? Because the gameís MSRP is only $39.99 which means if you paid more then that you are being ripped off. Canadianís need to be especially aware as some online places are selling for $44.99 which is BS considering the current strength of our dollar.

EB games/Gamestop might be one of the prime culprits as the ones around here still have the last couple Naruto games (Ultimate Ninja 2 and Uzumaki chronicles 2) listed for $49.99 and havenít adjusted them for the exchange rate.

So fellow games stay sharp and donít let them take extra hard earned money out of your pockets if you can help it. Remember knowing is half the battle.

I finally got my hands on this game yesterday and was playing my heart out on it.
I managed to beat both the ultimate road and ultimate challange modes for the most part unlocking all 42 characters for use. Now I just need to unlock all the ultimate and custom jutsu's that you can learn.

I've got to say some parts of the game are better then others.

A few of the minigames like the gambling ones are fun but the other ones like the tree climbing thing are pure garbage left overs from past ultimate ninja games and they need to dye in a fire.

I'm not sure what purpose Shuriken mode servies but so far it seems pretty useless and Summoning mode blows since it's either too strong or it leaves you near helpless, plus it lasts way to long considering the game blantently tells you one tactic against them is to simply outlast them.

But I've got to say that the main meat of the game, the actual fighting was pure bliss. Having your ultimate jutsu only last 1 cutseen instead of four makes the fights both quicker and more intence.

The balance in story mode is also a bit more fair so far for the most part as thought I had to redo a couple battles for the most part none of them where too frustrating unlike the problem I had with ultimate ninja 2 where the clear requirements for a few non optional battles where INSANE.

I still don't like how the ai is given some cheap constant power ups like a speed boost, attack boost or defence boost in some battles. It's just makes those fights really cheap and annoying.

Having to "date" the characters a couple of times to unlock things is fun, It would be nice if they made that mode a bit deeper for Ultimate Ninja Accel. A full blown Dating sim sidemode could be hillarious if done right.

All in all I'd give the game a solid 7/10 for now. It's just too bad their isn't more meat to the game as I've cleared most of it in just a day and getting people together to play multiplayer isn't so easy as an adult at times :(

After some considerable time playing Ultimate ninja 3 on the weekend and such today I stumbled upon something truely extrodanary, a hidden secret that's only in the north american release of the game. A way to unlock Timeskip Naruto as a playable character!!!

I was playing ultimate challange mode last night trying to find Sasuke so I could date him and unlock his ultimate jutsu. I went to switch map locations and noticed that the village memorial was selectable.

Choseing to go to the memorial to see what was their I was shocked to see the ghost of the 3rd Hokage floating infront of the stone waiting for me. He smiled at the screen then said "Thank you for playing Ultimate ninja 3. Here is but a small taste of things to come" then vanished in a puff of smoke.

Once he was gone I aquired a new item called the Will of fire, having this unlocks a new ultimate jutsu that Naruto can equip called Accel Naruto. As long as you have Accel Naruto selected as your ultimate jutsu then when you play as Naruto he'll be wearing his Time skip costume.

When you activate his ultimate jutsu in battle Naruto jumps into the air and does this cool pose like when he first showed up after the time skip with his arms spread open wide. He then declares "I WILL be the next Hokage" forms a rasengan and slams it down into his foe.

Other then that he's the same as normal naruto expect for being taller. I guess that this is a good sign that we WILL be getting Ultimate Ninja Accel here in north america, and prehaps sooner then we expected.
