There are certain situations where it’s tough to avoid manga spoilers and this is one of those times.
Ambitious Naruto Storm 3 fans have found a hidden image of Tailed Beast Chakra Mode Level 2 Naruto from the official Japanese Storm 3 website. It’s just an icon of him, so it doesn’t confirm if this is an awakening or a separate playable character, it just means he will be in the game in some capacity.
In case you are wondering, Tailed Beast Chakra Mode Level 2 is when Naruto and the Nine Tails become true allies, with the Fox willingly sharing chakra with Naruto. Tailed Beast Chakra Mode Level 1 is when Naruto bests the Nine Tails and takes his chakra by force.
Update December 25: The hidden image has been taken off from the official Storm 3 website No reason was mentioned as to why it was removed.
Update January 16: Tailed Beast Mode Naruto is confirmed!
