For the first time ever, the origin of the most merciless band ever is depicted!

Thanks to NARUTO SHIPPUDEN ULTIMATE NINJA STORM REVOLUTION, NARUTO SHIPPUDEN fans will have all the details about Akatsuki’s background! All aspiring ninjas are asking themselves tons of questions for years: how was Akatsuki, the biggest threat in the Ninja universe, brought to life? How did Pain and Konan expand their crew?

This new animation will be woven into gameplay, allowing players to take part in the origins of the Akatsuki.  Various members of the infamous gang such as Sasori, Kakuzu, and others, will have new outfits designed by series creator Masashi Kishimoto.
