Naruto ultimate ninja storm 3 is a amazing game. The story goes all the way through the fourth great ninja war but Tobi and Sauske shall still be wandering around as Tobi losses to Naruto bringing peace over the lands for a bit of time but the ninja alliance forces remain as one.
There are two types of battles in the story mode one is one on one fights the other is mob fights. One on one fights are self explaintory. Mob battles is where you will fight more than one ninja at a time as you run through an area and get to the end of it. It may sound tough but it's truly not because as you defeat an opponet you can tap the A button and youll appear right behind another enemy so you can defeat them really easily. The other way is to use the Y,Y,B button combo and youll attack all enemies but you have to hit the correct button to kill them each time.
A small difference has occured in this game with the awakeings. Awakeings use to just be when you were low on hp in a one on one fight which enchanced your abilities and restriced use of ultimate jutsu and support. For some characters you can activate a differnent awakeing which has the same restrictions but it instead reduces your chakra gauge so you will have a limited time to use it. For some characters this can activate the use of different jutsus the best example would be the third hokage when you activate it he can use the water style wall and the earth style wall
