Are you dying to know who's going to join Naruto and his buddies in Tomy's upcoming fighting game? Here are the latest characters that have been confirmed on the growing roster.


Itachi

Sasuke's older brother Itachi likes to use clones, as well as his genjutsu, to throw off the enemy. The aerial crow-kunai is one of his special attacks, which allows him to teleport to the ground after releasing the dangerous projectiles. He can also quickly teleport to the backside of an opponent to gain a distinct advantage. Itachi's other specialties include creating an exploding clone as a counter move, and in this game, he's gained a new aerial fire ball jutsu move that can be executed by hitting the jutsu button in midair.

Kisame

The former member of the Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist, Kisame is a lethal adversary in close-quarters combat. His sharkskin sword attack drains chakra, and he can also summon a clone to take down an opponent with water prison jutsu for some extra free hits. The key to playing as Kisame is to stay within close range while attacking with your sword so that you can break an enemy's guard and suck its chakra. If enemies understand this and hover too far away, he has a water shark bomb jutsu that will close the gap.

Hiruko

Once a great shinobi of Sunagakure, Hiruko is now a slow character but he has a dangerous reach with his long tail. While he may skulk and lumber around the field, his tail is quick and lethal, as well as poised to do a ton of damage. He can poison his opponents and confuse them by inverting their controls, and one of his special abilities is a latent ninja ability that involves time-sensitive poison. It's a secondary jutsu that allows him to poison enemies who then have to defeat him before a timer runs out or they will die. Playing keep-away and run-the-timer-down is another way to win if you feel like you can't win the old-fashioned way.

Sasori

Sasori of the Red Sand has a lot of variety in his move set. He can do heavy close-range damage with his mechanical wings or take out opponents from afar with the cord that comes out of his body. If that doesn't work, he also has a stream of fire he can unleash. Sasori has hyperarmor, which protects him from knockback effects as he's walking forward. Damage can still be dealt, but he won't be stunned. His secondary jutsu allows him the ability to poison opponents and break down their guard. In partnered matches, Hiruko and Sasori can team up as one character if Hiruko dies first.

Deidara


The youngest member of the Akatsuki, Deidara likes to utilize his explosive clay creations and keep his distance in a fight. He can set explosive spiders and birds, which is important in distracting his opponents. In latent ninja mode, he can drop three times as many explosives, and the spiders will actually track down enemies. His secondary jutsu allows him to use a giant bomb to take out almost everything onscreen, which will come in handy during four-player free-for-all matches. In the latest game, Deidara has a new custom throw in which he attaches an explosive spider to an opponent's face. And watch out for his counter jutsu--it deals a ton of damage.

Naruto Shippuden: Clash of Ninja Revolution 3 is set to be released on November 17.
