A week or so ago news was released regarding the character addition of “Shisui Uchiha” into the upcoming Naruto fighting game; “Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution“. Avid fans of the Naruto and Naruto Shippuden series’ will know Shisui but it is understandable if some don’t seeing as he wasn’t exactly showcased within the story outside of a small flashback which didn’t explain everything it could about the character.
Basically Shisui was the best friend of Itachi and another member of the Uchiha clan who, when the time came for it, gave up his vision, power and (eventually) his life. Uchiha – taking his eyes along with his “Sharingan” abilities – was then able to become the strong shinobi e all know and love but…what IF Shisui survived? What if HE was able to raise to greatness and become a powerful Uchiha ninja?
The upcoming action title will feature a small storyline revolving around Shisui so it’s only natural that the game developers would try to make him as formidable as possible…and that’s exactly what they’ve done. A design for Shisui’s very own “Susanoo” – a great power that high-level Uchiha ninjas can unlock – has been released and will feature within the game as a power-up for Shisui in-battle.
The design – created by Masashi Kishimoto himself – is unique to Shisui and will prove quite destructive on the battlefield. Set for a release in Japan sometime this fall, the game will be available on both the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3. Unfortunately there’s been no exact release date for the West but it is safe to assume it wouldn’t be too long after that.
