Clash of Ninja Revolution III, also known as Clash of Ninja Revolution III - European Edition in Europe, is the third installment of the "Clash of Ninja" series on the Wii for the Western market, following the 2009 release of Clash of Ninja Revolution 2. It's the fifth installment in the series in general, including the two released only in Japan.
The game covers the "Kazekage Rescue Mission/Rescue Gaara Arc" from the anime series, featuring 40 playable characters, wi-fi connectivity for on-line battles. The European version has the original Japanese voice overs for each character, whilst the US version has the English dubbed characters. Several characters, like Kakashi, Naruto, Sakura and Gaara have undergone some attack and skill changes representing the 2 year time-skip of the anime. Following the Naruto Shippūden: Gekitō Ninja Taisen! EX3 change to Revolution III, the game features more fine tuning and balancing of powers, such as removing or adding powers, attacking from a downed position, the "Body Flicker Technique" for all characters, and more.
