YOSH! Wednesday’s rumor has been confirmed via a brand new Shonen Jump scan! Naruto Storm 3 will feature Naruto vs the Nine Tails in an effort to gain the demon fox’s chakra to use at will! On the sideslines, as shown in the cutscene, is Naruto’s mother Kushina, showing her son the love and support he needs to defeat the Nine Tails.
As you can see, this is a giant boss battle with the Nine Tails dishing out attacks of epic proportions! One interesting thing to note is Naruto’s icon is Sage Mode, yet he is wearing his normal orange-clad jumpsuit. Naruto does go Sage Mode in these clothes in the anime, but looking at the scan makes Saiyan Island wonder if this can be done in free battle. Will Naruto’s normal clothes be an alternate uniform for Sage Mode or is this just a story mode element!?
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.
