North America, there are just 11 days left until the highly anticipated release of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations! Just yesterday. Namco Bandai Games America issued a press release stating development for the English version is complete and the game has moved onto the manufacturing stage!

The press release adds Generations will be compatible with the Sage’s Legacy cards, which are a series in the Naruto Collectible Card game. Each copy of Generations will come with at least one card from the Sage’s Legacy series, while supplies last. As Saiyan Island reported last month, Amazon will be offering 2 free cards. GameStop was originally offering only 1, but they have now one-upped Amazon and are offering 3 free cards! By entering special codes on the cards, players will be able to unlock artwork and bonus skills (it hasn’t been mentioned specifically what kind of skills).

In case you are wondering what the cards from the Sage’s Legacy series look like, check out the video below. You will note there are codes at the top right hand corner of each card. Our guess is those codes are the ones that need to be entered in Generations, but we could be wrong, and there may be another code located elsewhere!

SAN JOSE, Calif., (March 1, 2012) – Leading video game publisher and developer NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc., today announced that NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM Generations has now entered the manufacturing phase and will be on sale in North America on March 13 for the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. Developed by CyberConnect2 and based on the popular animated NARUTO and NARUTO SHIPPUDEN series from VIZ Media from the manga created by Masashi Kishimoto (also available from VIZ Media), NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM Generations is the latest rendition in the smash hit ‘NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja Storm’ series of games, featuring the original Japanese voiceovers and lovingly crafted presentation faithful to the NARUTO series. NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM Generations offers NARUTO and gaming fans a torrential downpour of NARUTO ninja fighting action and adventure. For those gamers who cannot wait to get in on the ultimate ninja battle, the playable demo is available now for download on the PlayStation®Network and Xbox LIVE®.

“NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM Generations is an essential addition to the library of any Naruto fan,” said Carlson Choi, Vice President of Marketing, NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. “Beyond the unprecedented number of characters and online modes, stalwart fans can enjoy over an hour of brand new animation created by Studio Pierrot for the game.”

NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM Generations will revolutionize the series; online play and ramp up the number of playable characters to more than 70, with even more fan favorites available as support characters. Players will compete in a variety of online battle modes with their favorite NARUTO characters, including Naruto and Sasuke, and by popular demand, the characters Zabuza and Haku. For the first time in the series, NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM Generations will feature an innovative system that integrates real-world collectible cards with the video game, allowing players to unlock corresponding artwork for their in-game profile card and engage in a special mini-battle to unlock a bonus skill and gain an advantage in the network battle. This new card functionality works with the SAGE’s LEGACY edition of the collectible cards, which are sold separately.

NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM Generations is rated “T” for teen by the ESRB and carries an MSRP of $59.99. While supplies last, all copies of NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM Generations sold will include one or more exclusive foil-printed SAGE’s LEGACY cards, allowing players to try out the exciting card functionality for themselves.

  • devantwilliams

    wait i don’t understand, so if EVERY copy of generations will get at least one card, then, if you order from amazon and get 2 cards, shouldn’t you also get one more card then? 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_S3L7CRXQACZXZYYH7TL5EMIPAI Salvador

    cool but gamestop only allows one? dang well i didnt pre-order it i just want to see what the card will be

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_FJW3MEI7I7VQQSG4YVJNYOEZTM Ē

    A lot of cards, does this mean there are hundreds of passwords or are there only like 5 cards?

  • Anonymous

    i think it means each store will give at least one. it wont come in the box.

  • requiem-zero

  • devantwilliams

  • dan will

    pretty sure that it will be like yugioh, and the card numbers will be the same, so somebody could just upload a master list and wouldn’t have to bother with the cards.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1682935633 Skyler Chantz Prall

  • super-sayian

    dude I’m offically done with ninja storm 2, the game and online..
    i never played an game so unbalanced online its not even funny.
    i never hated spammers my whole life till i played the online storm 2.
    seriously, resengan 50x or ultimates x20 , I’m an decent player,
    range from 10 being best, ill be an 6 maybe 7, but with the spamming
    issues its not even fun, i literally had to stop myself from breaking the
    damn disc in half as if its an gps system from office space… how the
    hell did cc2 NOT see this, they expect everyone to play fair.. 90/10
    90% is the spamming bastards that i wanna kill, and the 10% is the
    ones who are actually trying to do their best.. i literally got to be extreme
    pro with no life, or just really talented with video games ( which I’m neither ).
    and YES i have faced these, and they KICK MY ASS as if they actually have
    the sharingan, and predict my movements, for once i knew how zabuza felt
    when faced kakashi in their first battle. and I’m proud to be defeated by them,
    it gives me an chance to brush up and sharpen my skills little by little. but with
    constant spammers using fireballs or that stupid ass rasengan cut scene , there is
    NO growth in that, just an wasted as fight that will frustrate an person.
    and the sad part is…. the battles are not even on the rank list.
    its the free for all battle that all the spammers still like to go.
    this generations, NEW battle system with the whole 4 subsitutions and cancel
    combos better be useful, but im sure most people will try to find an new spam.
    maybe an cancel spam or some bullshit… and yea i know its an fucking game.
    but, i didn’t by an game to lose all the time to an guy who only knows fireball jutsu.
    BYE….

  • Black_Sharingan

     u guys are ridiculous… (let me clarify for you guys) 1 packet is $6.00 bucks. the BOX with 24 packets is $75.00 bucks. Uderstand?!

  • Anonymous

    its .99cents plus 4.99 for shipping and handeling

  • Anonymous

    I here you spent 45mins playing the same guy, minato spam and Chakra shuriken spam with supports and they were hinata and Naruto could never get close to him. Out of maybe 30 fights 4 wind to me. I’m not that bad either but someone who doesn’t use hand combat its hard to play. Ibest him and wanted to turn off ps3 on a won which I did the guy messages me saying let’s be friends. Of course message back he is not worthy

  • Anonymous

    I know what you mean, but if you want someone to fight feel free to add me. I am one of the most legit fighters in the entire world. Most spammers make excuses and its funny when I prove them wrong and they admit it making them look very dumb lolz

    I guess I should pre-order soon but I still have to cancel my Mass Effect 3 pre-order… Gawd, I hate going to Gamestop when all they do is push crap on you. 

  • James Sylne

    lol me 2 squirtle

  • Anonymous

    Yeah that’s basically Storm 2′s online. I recently started playing again and there are still spammers yes, but if your lucky enough you’ll find some players who just like to play a good match(me). It really isn’t fun when players just use Jutsu, people who spam just wanna win and it just ruins the game. In my opinion, Ultimates should be Finishers instead or at least a one time use.

  • HDAnimeCentral X

    he is talking about the same cards, not the same code for every single card

  • http://twitter.com/A_Gill27 Alex Gill

    This is great, but I live in the UK and I cant find a pre-order listing for the Card Edition anywhere. If anyone could help I’d appreciate a reply

  • Anonymous

    Same I’m hoping game stocks it closer to the release date. If not I’m ordering from amazon France cause it should have English option even though its Amazon France

  • Rafael Georgiou

  • Rafael Georgiou

    i mean if there is a DLC in generations for free i can download them using an account with a country available in PLAYSTATION STORE because my country isnt available to use the store If someone knows if i can tell me plz

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Michael-Floor/1186313778 Michael Floor

    Lol , so confusing. The codes are the same though , as in that every different card has the same code on them. Every Chiyo card from this series has the code JXF97FR2F7 on it ,and so on. So someone can just make a list with all codes and share them.

  • Jordan Green

    This franchise card stuff won’t take off.

    respect……the tobi

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Grayson-Such/755475433 Grayson Such

    sigh enough with the card stuff…now if they released a collectors edition with say a 8 inch statue of Itachi or even sage mode Naruto now thatd be tight and worth it :)

  • Jay Gilmore

    ok ok so i had to reply to this lol. i just recently preordered ME3 and SFxTek from gamestop went back told them to cancel my SF preorder put th emoney towards ME3. my buddy and i both have ps3 so we split the diff 30 each and put it towards ME3 so we can just buy the psn download and we can both have it. so i went and canceled that order and told them to jus tput it all towards Generations. lmfao they dread eveytime I go in that store lmfao.

  • Tyler Casilio

    When I pre-ordered it the other day the guys at GameStop said we were getting an exclusive support character and the 3 cards. Either their retarded or know something we don’t know

  • Jordan Green

    I didn’t even know that.But I watch the anime and play the games, I don’t play the cards

  • Anonymous

    They are either saying that to get sales or it might be a surprise. If any special support id say either zetsu, rinnengan madara, kushina or konohamaru

  • Anonymous

    lml the sound 4 actually fought..zetsu doesnt do shitt but dissapear through walls..hahahah

  • devantwilliams

    @google-e9ff55c52aaa595b5cf77116a57a2787:disqus  who knows i think very few games have been edited to put more chars in the only time it was  done i believe was ultimate ninja and ultimate ninja 3 with curse mark sauske and fox naruto

  • James Sylne

    I know that much, but the guy at my Gamestop said he don’t know nothing about the cards or anything. Idk if he is playing dumb or there’s a suprise waiting for us lol.

  • James Sylne

    Is anybody having a problem signing into their PSN?

  • Tyler Casilio

    PSN is down for maintenance today.   But yeah about the GameStop support he said it after I already paid for it so I don’t think it was for the sales and i dunno he said from the chapters/manga not like some filler character. Direct quote: “Yeah we get 3 cards that you can enter for online or somethin, and we get an exclusive Support character to use from late in the manga, I dunno man but it looks sweet.”

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001292866466 Frank Cerullo

    @google-08629c214c8cff437346446892ee40cd:disqus  i don’t know were he heard that and even if its true he shouldn’t be reavling info like that. buy if its true and its late in the manga my bets go to rinnegan mask tobi.

    but anyway there is no way a guy at gamestop would know that if anyone would know its whoever subs and dubs teh naruto video games because soemtimes the us gets a us exclusive like sasuke curse mark being a sep char ( btw i never unlocked taht char i had no idea how to by the time i found out you could i had already sold the game) 

  • James Sylne

    lol so the guy from the gamestop said we are going to be able to download a support character from late in the manga? lol this sound like music to my elephant ears.:D

    Yeah I think the Card Edition will be on the UK Amazon store closer to the release date too. I remember when Storm 2 came out and the Collectors Edition didnt hit Amazon until pretty late. But then again the Card Edition has been removed from Zavvi and the Collectors Edition for Storm 2 was already listed on Game this close to the release date

  • Tuga_Physicx

    Are these the card’s we can use the code on the game?Yes or no?Oo

     lol what a lucky SOB i got one of those box things once payed like 30 dollars or something and got 17 of 1 card 12 of another and the rest were all doubles

  • Ruseo

    yeah cc2 never said jutsu clashes were in it….true they showed a bunch of videos hinting it might be in so that was kinda a dick move but not once did they announce clashes

  • Ruseo

    but it sounds to me like someone will just have to post the codes they got and so on till we have a decent list of codes.. if they really think people are gonna pay 6 dollars for a pack or 75 dollars for a box of cards just to get codes……honestly
