Fans of Naruto are definitely well aware that the next update to the fighting game series, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution, is coming to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this year. In addition to a roster that rolls around 100 fighters deep, Revolution features over 50 minutes of new anime from Studio Pierrot.
