Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Storm 3 ships 12 million worldwide
Naruto's latest installment of Ultimate Ninja Storm has shipp(uden)ed 1.2 million units to date, Namco Bandai revealed. According to the company, the franchise's most successful games launch comes courtesy of the PS3 and Xbox 360 brawler, which curiously only reached Japan last week after coming to North America and Europe in early March.

Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 notched tenth place in NPD's rankings in what was a games-packed March. Namco will be confident the shipping figures can translate into more seven-figure sales for the series; as of March 2011, Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 had sold 1.1 million.
