Sasuke returns to the Hidden Leaf Village seeking answers, and standing before him are First Hokage Hashirama, Second Hokage Tobirama, Third Hokage Hiruzen, and Fourth Hokage Minato, all reanimated. Sasuke asks Hiruzen for the truth about Itachi, and he questions Tobirama about the secret of the Uchiha Clan. Then Hashirama begins his story, which goes back to the feudal age, to a period before the village even existed.
Villages did not exist when Hashirama was a child. It was during this strife-filled time that he met Madara Uchiha. The two youths talk about their hopes for the future, without revealing their true identities, and find they share the same vision...to create a ninja world where children do not have to die.

The Senju and Uchiha clans join together to build a shinobi village and fulfill their dreams.

The fighting rages between Naruto, who stands at the vanguard of the Allied Shinobi Forces, and the team of Madara and Obito. Ten Tails' relentless attack is wearing down Naruto, and his chakra begins to dissipate. Meanwhile, Kakashi and Obito face each other in a different Kamui dimension.
Ten Tails is on the brink of its final transformation and begins to form a massive Tailed Beast Bomb. The shinobi no longer have the strength or energy left to stop it, but Sakura, Shikamaru and the others refuse to give up.

Obito completely absorbs the giant Ten Tails, undergoes a transformation and becomes the Ten Tails' Jinchuriki. With immense power gained from taking in the Tailed Beast, Obito breaks through the barrier. Counterattacks by each of the Hokage have little effect. But they are able to analyze Obito's powers, gained by using their immortal bodies. Naruto and Sasuke come up with a fighting style, but can they succeed?

Becuase Naruto feels Obito's pain and understands him like no one has before, he extends his hand to Obito. Will Obito change the path he has chosen or continue to cause mayhem for the ...
In order to appeal to his better side and get him to stop the war, Naruto reminds him of Rin and how she is said to be 'always watching'.

Naruto's power of persuasion moves Obito's heart. Due to the influence of the Ten Tails, visions of himself and Rin from the past appear in the inner realm and play havoc with Obito's emotions.

As the war reaches its climax, will the Allied Shinobi Forces emerge victorious?
