Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 3 is the third game in the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja series, covering the entirety of the pre-timeskip era from the beginning up to Naruto and Sasuke's final fight. It also overhauls the awakening system and is one of the first Naruto games to feature both a roamable Konoha map with a 3D camera AND a playable Minato Namikaze (albeit as the "Yellow Flash" and mute.)

Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 2 Leftovers

All characters use the same internal ID from the previous games, so characters that didn't return have Naruto, the first character in the list, as placeholders. While their names and several voices from the unused versions are different, nothing happens when he uses an Ultimate Jutsu.

  • ID 1A - Has Jirobo's name and voices. In Ultimate Ninja 2 this was the position of the Japan-only Doto Kazahana.
  • ID 1D - Has Sealed Orochimaru's name and voices.
  • ID 1F - Has Nine-Tailed Naruto's name and voices. The Nine Tails form became a transformation of the default Naruto instead of a separate character (but can be selected from the beginning later in the game). This upgrade is stored in ID 2F.
  • ID 21 - Has Hanabi's name and Byakugan Hinata's voices, and displays Hanabi's portrait in the selection screen.

Unused Debug Menu


NUN3-5 has a debug screen, discovered years after release by Narutimate Modding and Naruto Classic Team.

The background is an image of the Sasuke Retrieval team (Naruto, Choji, Kiba, Neji and Shikamaru) taken straight from the manga, judging by image quality. System wise it allows for using and changing character and stages (without going to free battle menu), spawn points as well as awakening modes among others.
