YOSH! Saiyan Island fans get ready as a brand new Shonen Jump scan for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 (Naruto Storm 3) has been released! If you recall, there was a rumor saying Mifune, Hanzo, Hokage Naruto will be playable in Naruto Storm 3. Consider the rumor confirmed as all three characters make their appearance in this latest scan!
Mifune, the General from the Land of Iron, will make his debut in the Storm series with the green, red, and gray armor-looking outfit from the 4th Shinobi World War. Hanzo, the former leader of the Hidden Rain Village, also makes his Storm debut in the form of a black-sclera, reincarnated Edo Tensei warrior.
As for Hokage Naruto, who will be unlockable from the start for players who have a Naruto Generations save file on their PS3/360, he dawns the red and white cloak worn by his father and the other Hokage.
Saiyan Island has to wonder, does the inclusion of Hokage Naruto mean a Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie tie-in or is it just a re-addition of a Storm 2 character? Looks like we will have to wait and see. For now, enjoy the latest scan!
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is Namco Bandai Games and CyberConnect2’s fourth entry in the Storm series. It will be available for the Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 in Japan, North America, and Europe sometime Spring 2013.
