TOHO has released a picture of cards with Naruto character art on them. By the looks of it, they are a deck of playing cards, with the bottom row and a half featuring Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie. The rest of the cards aren’t movie specific, but some do have artwork from past Naruto films. The only card that looked new, or distinguished to us at Saiyan Island is the queen of diamonds – Jonin Kushina! From our understanding these will be available to purchase from a convenience store in Japan known as Lawson.
Also known as Naruto Shippuden the Movie: Road to Ninja, Naruto Shippuden Movie 6, among others, Road to Ninja is the 9th movie overall in the Naruto series. It will debut in Japanese theaters July 28, 2012. Naruto’s creator, Masashi Kishimoto will be personally involved with the movie, creating the story and providing character designs.
