Naruto Shippuden: UNSR Introduces Minato Namikaze

By Dread Reaver, 2 years ago
BANDAI NAMCO has introduced the fiery Minato Namikaze to the character lineup in their upcoming action-fighter Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution. If you've never heard of him before, Minato supposedly has quite a story to tell:

Considered as the fastest man Earth ever witnessed, Minato Namikaze the 4th Hokage makes his comeback in his Reanimation ver. and Kurama Link Mode. In the midst of the terrible fights occurring during the Fourth Great Ninja War, the newly created duo Naruto and Minato will not be superfluous! Will the amazing Ultimate Combination Jutsu born from this association be the solution to this dreadful conflict? This united attack won’t be the only ace in Minato’s sleeve; he will be able to perform the famous Rasengan he created along with his unique Space-Time Ninjutsu!
Sounds intense, right? We've also got a few glimpses of the man in action, along with other Naruto characters:
