This latest batch of screenshots from Namco Bandai do absolutely nothing to ease my excitement over Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm for the PlayStation 3, despite cell-shaded screenshots always looking a bit rough compared to the game in motion. I'm going to have to sit down with my nephew one day and get a crash course in exactly who all these people are, though that could lead to me finally putting aside my pride and buying one of those damn headbands and start calling myself the next hokage.

For the record, that will never, ever happen.
