On Sunday, a new scan revealing the inclusion of Kakashi, the 7 Swordsmen of the Mist, and samurai Naruto in Naruto Storm 3. Namco Bandai Games has today released artwork from the scan! The 7 Swordsmen and Kakashi artwork is a single image and there is also a separate Samurai Naruto image.
Will Samurai Naruto occupy another character slot or have a different set of moves? It’s unclear at point in time, although Namco Bandai does note he is an “alternate costume”.
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. It will begin with the incident with the Nine Tailed Fox from 16 years ago, continue on to the Five Kage Arc, and go up to the Shinobi War, covering latest episode of Naruto Shippuden before the game’s release.
