Naruto Storm 3 – ANBU Kakashi, Road to Ninja Sasuke, Swimsuit Sakura DLC

Tags: Information, Naruto, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360,

Update January 18: See Naruto Storm 3 Scan 21 – DLC Costume Visuals for confirmed looks of each of the characters.

YOSH!! ANBU Kakashi, Road to Ninja Sasuke, and Swimsuit Sakura have been confirmed as DLC (downloadable content) in addition to Road to Ninja Hinata, Samurai Naruto, and Naruto in Goku’s Costume. The news comes from the latest Shonen Jump scan which confirmed Tailed Beast Mode Naruto will be on the game disc. Only images of Samurai Naruto and Naruto in Goku’s costume were shown, but as you can see in the scan cutout below, there is text that confirms the other characters as DLC.

The scan also confirms the rumor from early today – April 18 will be the Japanese release date for Storm 3. In addition, the scan reveals the Japanese demo will be available for download in early February. As you may already have heard on Saiyan Island, with PS3 games, the demo can be downloaded by anybody in the world as long as they have a Japanese PlayStation Network account. It’s unlikely Xbox 360 will get a demo for Japan.

As far as Saiyan Island knows, ANBU Kakashi, Road to Ninja Sasuke, Road to Ninja Hinata, and Swimsuit Sakura have only been confirmed as DLC for Japan.

Europe will be getting six free downloadable costumes for those who pre-order Naruto Storm 3 (the normal version as well as the Will of Fire and True Despair editions), but aside from Samurai Naruto and Goku Costume Naruto, it’s unclear who the other 4 could be. We would have to guess they would be the same, but again, that has not yet been confirmed.

As for North America, only the Goku costume for Naruto has been confirmed. No information on additional DLC has been revealed.

Stay tuned to Saiyan Island for the latest Naruto Storm 3 news!

Below are EXAMPLE images of what ANBU Kakashi, Road to Ninja Sasuke, Road to Ninja Hinata, and Swimsuit Sakura MAY look like. As mentioned above, their Storm 3 models have not yet been released so they could differ from what is shown below.

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 North America and Europe in March of 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.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_U7MU5OUS7FIH575VT4PNZNIDXU jermar

    Wow, last time I saw anbu kakashi was on clash of ninja revolution 3 one the wii. I honestly never thought they would put him in this game. So are the dlc characters included in the 80+ characters or are they separate (meaning total number could be over 90)?

  • uchihasasuke993

    I highly doubt these are japan only DLCs. Of course they reveal them in Japanese, but i don’t think CC2 would discriminate EU and US fans.

  • khunglongconduy

    i wish Goku Naruto can use Massive Rasengan like Spirit Bomb

  • GoldenUltima

    I believe these DLC’s will be worldwide. I mean they’ve never done X-country-only-content IIRC (The only thing close are the special edition but they don’t have in-game content that other regions don’t. Also they’d get much more money. These costumes might even be the 4 costumes that were waiting to be revealed.

  • uchihalord1994

    I think so too. it maybe japan’s getting it first, we can download it later perhaps lol 

  • SasukexNaruto2

    This was probably the big announcement I’m fine with this as long as these are choosable like you select kakashi select jutsu/ultimate then costume  

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001383653961 Rafael Georgiou

    These are coming in the game as pre order bonus?

  • naruto uzumaki

    amazing amazing amzingggg …too many alternate costumes i luv it <3 <3

  • naruto uzumaki

    so these are the five alternate costumes??? 1)naruto goku costume + 2)samurai costume, 3)kakashi anbu ,4)hinata from road to ninja costume,5)sasuke road to ninja costume…pretty good :)

  • tgohan

    Me too!! Swimsuit hinata, tenten, konan, shizune (if playable) kushina (if playable) mizukage! I want all of them to be in a bikini

  • SasukexNaruto2

    I hope that sasuke costumes can be an alt with any sasuke including taka, susano an kirin

  • Edorta Serrano

    Humm, will we be getting bikini Tsunade too? I wonder…

  • narutobleachop

    LOL! This game would be rated M if she was in a bikini. She’ll keep her old lady rags in this and every Naruto game after it. lol funny thought tho

  • itachi fabio

    Itachi anbu???

  • Fabio Bigini

    These are the characters you get when you bought the france kit

  • tgohan

    I know!! I wanted it anbu itachi for a long time. And itachi without the akatsuki cloak

  • tgohan

    Lol! I hear ya.

  • http://twitter.com/MurryEggplant MurryEggplant

    Oh yeah I would love to see the 2nd Mizukage in a swimsuit~ <3 xD

  • http://twitter.com/MurryEggplant MurryEggplant

    I am wondering the same thing! :O

  • tgohan

    You mean that tall guy with the slicked back hair who fought with gaara and the tsuchikage? Well now that’s an image I’m going to have nightmares about lol

  • James

    wow japan only?? Really? That sucks…

  • http://twitter.com/MurryEggplant MurryEggplant

    You mean Sasuke..? xD

  • bilal bazaani

    I dont even understaned you guys , the big issue here is WHYYYYYY is the game releasing a month after us , in japan ???  the land that created the series will have it a month later ,  whyyy  will they get more story  or what , just isnt fair then ?
     

  • http://twitter.com/Gaiash Mathew Gibbons

     Most likely it’s so Sakura isn’t the only original Team 7 member without a DLC costume in the pack. It would make sense that when the DLC is regularly available it’ll part of a swimsuit pack. But hopefully it means Ino will have a costume in a Road to Ninja pack.

  • GoldenUltima

    It’s not Japan only. It was ONLY CONFIRMED in Japan. Namco Bandai US will decide if it goes to the US or not and as far as I know CC2 can’t do anything about it. I think we’ll just have to wait and see.

  • João Francisco Souza

    Dude, probably they don’t wanna spoil the japanese anime viewers… The story mode will have the same lenght in all versions! People from CC2 are lazy, but not retarded…

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    See, CC2 can surprise me every now and again. Swimsuit Sakura is almost enough to sell the game alone for me… O_o

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Agreed.

  • tgohan

    What? No! Lol. The 2nd mizukage. Isn’t that who you said you would like to see in a bathing suit? Just trying to recall who that was.

  • treeko

    Reasons enough for me to get the game are as follows:-

    1.2nd level Bijuu mode Naruto(Even if he’s playable as a awakening,its still enough!)
    2.Anbu Kakashi nuff said
    3.Road to Ninja Hinata you all know why lol

    People crying about this being Exclusive to japan,please get a life I am 110% sure this will make it out of japan,considering how CC2 has been working on the Storm series it should be no surprise at all.

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    The last time he’s playable in Naruto Shippuden: Clash of Ninja Revolution III XD

  • Ruseo

    i might murder someone if this doesnt get approved for america. Or if the censor it. Cause it seems anything anime based in america gets censored so sakura ends up in a one peice.

  • Brodie Mains

    I’d like to jump on this wagon.

  • TheGameTagerZ

    Japan had storm 1 late with nothing new. It’s the same game. They rotate with release timings I believe. EU had Storm 2 first so why didn’t you question that? 

  • treeko

     Nami wasn’t censored in One piece Pirate warriors DLC for Europe, So I don’t see any reason for Sakura to get censored if they bring the DLC out side of the japan.

  • TheGameTagerZ

    The term “CC2 is lazy” is lazy. No facts and no reasoning behind it. You know CC2 isn’t Rockstar or Bungie right? They’re under a budget. 

  • http://twitter.com/ThePirateKid ThePirateKid

    Where did you see it. RAW?

  • Yonbi4tails

    If that’s true I wonder how far anime will be by April 18th.

    And If U.S is a month ahead then maybe this is their way of satisfying the manga readers.

  • Tommy Faust

    while im sure the hinata and sakura costumes will be good for a few boners, I think it is fair to say serious fans like me would like to see more canon related costumes like anbu itachi and others

  • Greg Carter

    I like it, but we need anbu Itachi too…

  • Donutman92

    now the weirdo anime fans are gonna start to come out again -_-

  • http://twitter.com/AbdulVentus Abdul Wahid

    and Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 3

  • Yonbi4tails

    Definitely would have preffered anbu tachi over kakashi. but still cool. Hope they release more cool DLC in the future and less of the silly ones.

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    I said last time, Ultimate Ninja 3 was old.

  • Greg Carter

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/D4LQNL5ULKQ7G7C5NEE5H3YKZU Oliver

    Awesome !! Anbu Kakashi! Now only “damaged appearance” is missing ! If they just add somthing like that I’m veryyy happy!!

  • nejiandhinataHYUGA

    They can’t. Itachi’s dead.

  • http://twitter.com/Gaiash Mathew Gibbons

     Actually considering he’s wearing the Kame School Gi it makes sense he doesn’t. After training with King Kai the Kanji on his Gi changed to Kaio and after the fight with Freeza the Kanji patch was removed. So Kame Gi Naruto with Nyoi-bo makes sense to not have a Rasenki Dama.

  • Trey Robinson

    slap your self

  • http://twitter.com/Gaiash Mathew Gibbons

     They will. Even if they’re exclusive to Europe and Japan for the pre orders they’ll be released as DLC worldwide in time. Collectors Edition/Pre Order DLC always is.

  • http://gamergirl5k337.tumblr.com/ GamerGirl5k337

    Hinata………….nuff said

  • Jamonte Cannon

    That’s kinda cool… but why Swimsuit Sakura? Just seems out of place.

    Then again, Road to Ninja Hinata, who I’ve been wanting to see in action since I saw her in the trailer. WHEN THE HELL IS THAT MOVIE COMING HERE!?

  • Jamonte Cannon

     HA, Swimsuit Tsunade? You wish…

    They’d have to have Mei in one too, though, just to be fair.

  • http://twitter.com/UtenteBlog Utente Blog

    I wanted to pre-order Storm 3, but now i’ m a bit confused… I’ ve some questions, can anyone answer me? 
    1. The game will be release in Japan 1 month after American and European version (I’ m European), so… may be the Japanese version can going to have more Story of other versions, and “pre-order” version too???
    2. In the pre-order version (European) can i donwload those 6 customes as DLC from Xbox Live?
    3. I must wait for Japanese version to see what can change, or i can go for pre-order version?  
    Thanks, and sorry for my bad english. 

  • http://twitter.com/MurryEggplant MurryEggplant

    I did’int I saw screen shots and snips of video’s so far I do not like her looks.

  • http://twitter.com/MurryEggplant MurryEggplant

    1. The Japanese version will not get further then any other country version CC2 would not do that.

    2. I guess so

    3. just pre order it so you can be ahead of teh Japs when it comes to ranking online.

    I live in North America and I am getting it first day it come’s out my goal is to be the first Hero rank player!!

  • Pablo Gonzalez

    April 18?!?!? Madara confirmed :D

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    It will not have different content as you said. CC2 isn’t that stupid to alienate non-domestic fans if they have any say so. Only thing is, maybe they are having issues with the ratings boards outside JP for the “skimpier” costumes on Hinata and Sakura. I hope they don’t have an issue with this come time for release of the DLC.

  • http://twitter.com/Gaiash Mathew Gibbons

     That’s a bit of an Elitist point of view. I’m glad to have the Road to Ninja costumes because they’re decent designs by Kishimoto himself, should come with the alternate personalities and to give me more fun team up options. Saying “serious fans” is just another way of saying “a true fan” which is just a case of No True Scotsman.

  • http://twitter.com/A_Gill27 Alex Gill

     There is so much CC2 can do with DLC I’m really excited. I hope we can also get other stuff like Anbu Itachi, a ‘What If’ Gaara where he still has the One Tailed Shukaku, Sasuke in Saiyan armor and other stuff like that.

  • bilal bazaani

     You tell em man !!!!!!!!

  • bilal bazaani

     just love comments like that :D LMAO :D

     because i learned of the great show naruto after someone had forgotten his storm 2 game in my dorm , since then i bgan reading manga’s , so i dint know storm 1 and 2 were later released in europe than japan ;)

  • GoldenUltima

  • Davian_Thule

    i hope that the two naruto dlc costumes, anbu Kakashi, road to ninja sasuke, hinata and swimsuit sakura will be the six dlc for the will of fire and true dispear editions

  • Davian_Thule

     that would be great fun

  • uchihalord1994

    So i was checking the other post about bijuu mode naruto :) and saw some comments about whether its his awake or uj … now lets see >>> can it actually be logical (sarcasm) for naruto to have an BM as an uj and chakra mode as an awakening . cx

  • http://twitter.com/Boomer6574 Jevonte Marquis Gore

    Imma believe it when I see it. 

  • http://twitter.com/Boomer6574 Jevonte Marquis Gore

    Believe it.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/SHO2NFZXUKIZHMRFMKBLMOQCEI Tobi

    I think knowing that Japanese release date is a month late than other nations is great since it means that there will be spoilers for the anime if they release it as the same time as everyone else. This means that the game will most likely go a little further than where the anime is now.

  • Cbd31693

    I’ve always wanted that ANBU Kakashi costume in a storm game, I really hope this is true for the United States as well.

  • http://twitter.com/MurryEggplant MurryEggplant

    yah!!!!! road to ninja sasuke this game is ganna be the best storm yet!!

  • ssraditz94

    Honestly, i think it would have made more sense for Sasuke to be in Saiyan armor or Vegetas outfit from the Buu saga, but i’m not gonna complain about CC2 giving us extra DLC.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/QAQN42S2FAM74B7M3BOUXM6SSE Donald Barnett

    OK. excited for anbu kakashi cuz he looks badass and RTN hinata cuz its hinata without the shyness. RTN sasuke  not so much cuz it will be hard to play with serious, “I will destroy the leaf village” sasuke after seeing how he was in the movie. lastly eff swimsuit sakura. call me a perv but she has nothing to show

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_S3L7CRXQACZXZYYH7TL5EMIPAI Salvador

    lol what can swimsuit sakura do? I like her and is a great character and cute but in a swimsuit what can she do cry?
    and for sasuke in road to ninja that’s cool I knew it could show up sometime japan sure is lucky and anbu kakashi I can imagine what he’lll do summon dogs and use lighting blade in different ways
    sasuke will just smile lol

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    She has plenty to show… and that makes me a perv for liking it, not you. :P

     that would be epic , naroku and sageta :D

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    I just realized… Sasuke looks like a wannabe rapper/skate boarder in Road to a Ninja… that in itself is worth the download.

  • uchihalord1994

    She seduce you ? isn’t tht enough ? lmaoo you think a costume do anything* ? haha!

  • http://twitter.com/Dace4Space Jesus

    Why are we getting it a month early? Eaither they’re getting somthing exclusive, or some kind of distribution problem

  • BARDOCK7

    All people must be able to download all of the DLC`s!!! Come on CC2!! And all characters must have lots of alternate costumes, for example: Deidara with and without the Akatsuki cape and with/without Edo Tensei cape (4 costumes in total just here). CC2 please follow this logic and create some new clothes too!

  • Cri Whiteman

    I really hope that Itachi has the anbu costume! And something I would like to see would be (even if it’s strange), a dlc boss battle vs Aizen, Ulquiorra or something that would involve some bleach character in the game! It would be awesome!

  • GoldenUltima

    that will never 

    EVER

    happen

    you can cry in the corner now

  • GoldenUltima

    Jesus stop joking 

    of course you know the reason why Japan will get it later

  • kisame007

    do you have to pay for anbu kakashi?

  • Mathboi

    All i want is kakashi anbu and Goku naruto also north america should get a demo plzz why not !!!!  crap they need DLC’s too for sureee

  • Mathboi

    i agree those are the 5 imean blieach probably not i mean bleach but itachi had a chance but not its unlikely 

  • RoshenToor

    ya do we have to pay for these?

  • Mathboi

    FOR SURE bro or they can make it unlockable or money for each dlc 

  • Kien Mitchell

    Ahhh, anbu kakashi, he was my favorite ultimate ninja 3 character . And a costume for sasuke too ? And edo itachi and nagato will be in the game in some way . I’m glad i pre-ordered this .

  • James

    Ok calm down. Yeah we should get to play as them I mean why not? Anyways if we dont get those extra characters then i shall still enjoy this masterpiece of a naruto game :3

  • konanNobito

    So which kakashi will have this , Kamui or twin lightning shiver,

    Also can I pay for this with microsoft points or will this be a Ps3 exclusive

    I must have this hinata suit.

    Konan <3 where are yu

    And is this the big new I thought we weren't getting this ti the 21st

  • http://twitter.com/BoyBerki Berki Boy

    The 5 main characters got new costumes. Itachi doesn’t belong in that group :D

  • moongem

     It’s so CC2 can cop-out on following the episode up to April instead of March. Really, there is no downside to this for PAL or NTSC-U

  • Gingitsune7919

     Love the ambu Kakashi, and Hinata, but i could not care less about Sakura.

  • kimimaru7

    so now even cyber connect needs to resort to fan service…well, since i’m definitely gonna download it, I’d say it worked x)

  • Obito Uchiha

    Ahh The swimsuit trick the ultimate way to increase preorders….

  • TylerShinigami

    This is cool. The Anbu Kakashi looks dope as hell and the laid back Sasuke and sexy more confident Hinata from Road to Ninja look awesome too (:. This,maybe, means that they’ll put in a Menma DLC costume since some of these costumes are from Road to Ninja too but what do you guys think. Also I hope that this DLC is released in America and that it’s not region locked but if it is oh well changing my region on my Xbox isn’t hard This is cool.

  • uchihalord1994

    same moveset lol he didnt change much 

  • guest100000000000000001

    how would you buy dlc from japan? i think you’d need a japense credit card wouldn’t you >_>

  • DEIDARAGRE

    Well Since ANBU Kakashi is in it’s only fair that ANBU Yamato and ANBU Itachi should be in also.

  • Sawada Tsunayoshi

    No you don’t actually, just buy a Japanese PS or Xbox code online

    And in one of saiyanisland earlier articles the release date was set for march 5 which is way earlier than april 18th

    how do microsoft points work? i just started using lvie and i have no diea what to doi with it, will i need it to buy dlc?

  • konanNobito

    Microsoft points aren’t cheap dude gosh
    But ill just get the money from my mom when she gets her income tax
    The timing for this game is just perfect

    Sasuke’s RTN outfit is awesome, I really don’t like that character, except with that costume ! Best one since the blue t-shirt in early Naruto episodes.

  • http://twitter.com/Keviouk KuroPansa

    We often see her with swimsuit in endings, so I guess CC2 wanted to bring it back in their game.

  • http://twitter.com/Keviouk KuroPansa

    So they don’t care about spoiling American and European people about episodes that will be released in April ??? Awww, we don’t care after all xD

  • http://twitter.com/Keviouk KuroPansa

    Learn Japanese, it’s written on the scan.

  • http://twitter.com/Keviouk KuroPansa

    That definitely shouldn’t be a DLC. That should be included in the game!

  • http://twitter.com/Keviouk KuroPansa

    Previous news spoiled me about that. It’s kind of hard not being spoiled when you watch the anime only and you’re addicted to Storm news xD

  • http://twitter.com/Keviouk KuroPansa

    Swimsuit Sakura is inspired by two endings where we both see her in pink bikini.

  • guest100000000000000001

    its happened in the past O_O we’ve gotten in first before japan eupores gotten it first before japan, japan even got storm 1 last

  • Vasto_Lord_Dizzy

    wont lie, what u said was pretty weak

  • http://twitter.com/Keviouk KuroPansa

    Release order :
    Storm 1 : USA – Europe – Japan
    Storm 2 : Europe – USA – Japan
    Generations : Japan – USA – Europe
    Storm 3 : USA – Europe – Japan

  • Vasto_Lord_Dizzy

    well its not that hard, u go to the marketplace, find what u want to buy, and say its 400 ms points u just go to add those points by buying them with ur card or at best buy or something 400=$5 800=$10 and u can look up the rest through google

  • konanNobito

    Actually I’ve never bought dlc with them just things for my avatar so I’m not sure exactly
    But you go to the store (gamestop) and buy a card with whatever amount of microsoft points you want on it.
    Enter the code while hooked to the internet or wifi and there you have it
    #warning don’t try to buy games because to actually play them you will have to go purchase a huge hard drive to connect to your xbxo

  • http://twitter.com/Keviouk KuroPansa

    I’m pretty sure that the “Ultimate Ninja Kit” in France was also made for these costumes. There’s a DLC code for 5 costumes, one is Samurai Naruto (from DragonBlade Chronicles), and the 4 remaining ones have yet to be revealed, but according to the scan, which shows that alternate Naruto, French fans will also get those 4 new costumes. Let’s hope American fans will also have the opportunity to get them.

  • http://twitter.com/Keviouk KuroPansa

    Obviously yeah!

  • http://twitter.com/Keviouk KuroPansa

    Nope. Naruto Goku costume is for the pre-order (or special editions). And then, we have 5 costumes with the “Ultimate Ninja Kit” or else (don’t know yet) : 1) Samurai costume, 2) Kakashi ANBU, 3) Hinata RTN, 4) Sasuke RTN and 5) Sakura swimsuit costume.

  • alex_ruines_good_times

    But we are getting it earlier.the reason not to be mad is because you didnt read.

  • http://twitter.com/Keviouk KuroPansa

    People who bought the “Ultimate Ninja Kit” from France will get them. There probably will other ways for fans worldwide to get them too !

  • http://twitter.com/Keviouk KuroPansa

    Can’t imagine Konan with a swimsuit.

  • http://twitter.com/Keviouk KuroPansa

    Separate. Moreover, these are costume, not characters with new gameplay (except, maybe, a jutsu) or one random animation (win animation, altenate UJ ending)…

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002886867417 David Han

    I feel kinda bad for Japan since they’re getting it one month later though it makes sense since it’s NA’s turn to get it first again. I see CC2 is cranking out the gimmicks which is good. BM Naruto was practically confirmed since all the previous Storm games had brand new Naruto’s and Sasuke’s.

    It’d be a huge disappointment if the costumes have to actually be bought since they’re simply costumes. There is no reason to charge for an alternate outfit. If it came with a new ultimate jutsu or something then it would be reasonable.

  • http://twitter.com/Keviouk KuroPansa

    Yep, that’s it ! ;)

  • guest100000000000000001

    well i’ll go to gamestop to buy them then ( the costumes) and what hard drive isn’t my xbox already good for dlc?

  • http://twitter.com/Keviouk KuroPansa

    You can have it in Europe with the French “Ultimate Ninja Kit”.

  • narutobleachop

    hey bro, like @KuroPansa:disqus said, its April 18 for Japan only. USA still gets it March 5th and Europe gets it March 8th.  and yes we are getting it before them!

  • http://twitter.com/48john John Ramirez

    Awesome! Still I don’t understand why Swimsuit Sakura. That sucks. Now Swimsuit Tsunade……… Oh yeah. 

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/7TYZTHF3VU74LKGKHOFUHQVJEM ace

    Tell that to capcom with their SF games..

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/7TYZTHF3VU74LKGKHOFUHQVJEM ace

    If its free you could always just download it right? You wouldn’t need tbe japanese version of the game… Right?

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/7TYZTHF3VU74LKGKHOFUHQVJEM ace

    Why assume that? Support only characters were free in the 1st Storm, and didn’t they say there’d be free dlc?

  • EnmanuelCastaneda

    Do you know cuba in some way is any of u cuban cuz i am cuban even caribean people play this game thats how awesome it is mexico puerto rico and cuba to let you know answer my question

  • konanNobito

    Was that some lame way to make me mad, and what do you mean pretty weak?

  • konanNobito

    Uhmm unlike Ps3 , xbox 360 can’t hold as much data on they’re cds and the same goes for the actual system the extra hard drive is for the game to actually download to, so when ever you want to play the game you downloaded you will need to connect it to your xbox

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002886867417 David Han

    Ugh, no need to remind me about Capcom. 

  • Vasto_Lord_Dizzy

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/FFCRVIFR3JTGAMDA3AQI3XQQ3E Cloud S

    For those of you wondering why April is the Jap. release, it’s solely because of anime passage, etc. etc. manga, blah blah blah.
    Oh and to those of you who REPEATEDLY shut me down on them following the mangas pace, but the animes style, combined with their own.
    ha.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/FFCRVIFR3JTGAMDA3AQI3XQQ3E Cloud S

    Then again, CC2 DID say they would be in a future game on twitter a while back.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/FFCRVIFR3JTGAMDA3AQI3XQQ3E Cloud S

    I don’t care for Anbu Yamato, but for Itachi, ohhhh yeah.
    Also, I REALLY hope these DLC/Costumes in general are more than just looks.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/FFCRVIFR3JTGAMDA3AQI3XQQ3E Cloud S

    On another note, that new chapter was awesome. Just annoying how short they always seem to be.

  • http://twitter.com/ZekeFerguson Zeke Ferguson

    Wait a few weeks then read. B) its worth it. 

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/SABIK5MDEDEIZJBB3YEVGMGNHM Alex Boehm

    Neat. In theory, most characters should have atleast 2 alternate outfits, since many of them wear something different during the war. Right?

  • konanNobito

    Except konan but I think a costume with her hidden rain head band on would be ok

    swimsuit sakura in fight? don’t make sense….-_- not badass. road of ninja hinata like badass! my opinion lol

    No one wants Road to Ninja Ino? :D

  • Vasto_Lord_Dizzy

    so is it dlc or japan pre order?

  • http://twitter.com/Boomer6574 Jevonte Marquis Gore

    What ? lol haha! did i say they’re not ?

  • http://twitter.com/Boomer6574 Jevonte Marquis Gore

    Watch Swimsuit Sakura gon’ be the most used character in dat online. Watch!

  • OtherWorlded

    Just made a no no in my pants, lol JK…It is not that serious~ At least they got DLC this time around. Another reason for you guys to buy.

  • UN4Ever

     Then how about Mizukage Mei in Swimsuit?! XD

  • OtherWorlded

     I thought I was the only one that did that :)

  • broni007

    maybe they have confirmed about no guest character but i still want to see menma in action

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/KKFNR7SD5U337HH5BX2NITDIFQ Cody

    oh sure give us non-cannon outfits fron Sasuke, Hinata, and Sakura…but not Hiruko Sasori, ANBU Itachi/Yamato, or Kage uniforms for the 5 Kage.

    but eh this is all just bonus material so im happy regardless
    plus ANBU Kakashi kicks ass >:D

  • karasuKumo

    I’m hoping Menma is in this then in some form.

  • Ruseo

    Europe and america are different, they censor out anything that isnt appropriate for children. At least in non american products. they even censor a lot of the stuff out of rated M games cause they know parents buy it for their children.

  • Ruseo

    your xbox comes with a hardrive just like ps3. just xbox ones are removaable not sure about ps3. so if you baught an xbox with 120 gb an average game takes about 4-7 gb of space. it all depends on which hardrive you get. there is a 250 gb one too and a 500 gb one that you can buy seperatly. also you dont have to go to the store microsoft ponts are available to purchase on the xbox marketplace just like putting money in your wallet on the ps3 store. instead of reading as dollars it reads as points is the only difference

  • Ruseo

    mei terumi is the one im guessing he wants to see lol the chick with her hair looking like an upside down christmas tree

  • Ruseo

    as for the demo this is the same thing they did with generations, they said it was japan only demo then people bitched and they gave us one probably be the same thing XD as for the characters yes i agree ill be pissed if we dont get them or they censor them

  • Ruseo

    it all depends on what you like. I love a nice ass on a girl so sakura is fine body wise. hate her personality but her body doesnt bother me

  • Ruseo

    The way I see it is they have already announced DLC costumes. as long as the demand and money keep flowing nothing should stop them from adding costumes. Id like to see anbu itachi as well as well as many other costumes, as long as we are paying the money for new outfits then they will most likely keep adding till the money flow stops.

  • Sawada Tsunayoshi

    Yeah

  • SaskeAdri

    is that the big announcement? it’s cool but a big announcement should be veeeery awesome and thats just cool

  • Cody Lewis

    With original voice actor for this menma should be voiced by Wil Wheaton in English dub if I’m correct. Dr. Sheldon Cooper might start playing lol

  • narutfanboy12

    OMG i live in europe and im gonna get 6 freee dlc’s HHAHAHAHAHAHAH

  • aj hall

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Non-canon are the best types. They’re the least likely so it’s a bigger surprise when it’s done.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    That release date might as well confirm they are going by the anime. Just now the game can go further due to the anime getting more then a month to catch up.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    In your-not-so-humble opinion. Sakura in that swimsuit is hot.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Tsunade is old, you do know that? She’s just using her healing techniques to keep her body looking young at all times.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    I heard it’s not the same as demos, etc. Due to the coding of the game being different for each region, the DLC won’t work.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    DLC is not the same as demos or full games bought off of a store in a different region. The coding for the DLC has to match with the physical copy’s or it will not work I’ve heard.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    For those of you who believe you can just download DLC from the JP PSN using a JP account, I just did my research and found out you cannot. All DLC is region locked due to you having to have a copy of the game from the same region for it to work.

  • Ruseo

    But then again sakura and hinata are 15 or something so we are all criminals and freaks here lol

    Where did I wake up that 16 people aren’t happy with skimpy outfits on female characters? I’ve been thrown into a time warp. I’ve never seen such things unless most people on here are truly pre-pubescent (which is not an insult, just an observation).

    surprising yes. but non-canon isnt the best anything really, id take pointless canon material over non-canon material. that being said Goku and samurai is neither canon nor non-canon(in the sense of being filler or unofficial media) and is pretty awesome.

    infant id love to see the team 7 three suited in samurai gear like the cover art of the most recent manga chapter

  • Mr. Brickbreak

    You guys do realize that Yamato was a member of the Anbu, right? Just Pointing that out. I wish these DLC Characters had new moves, jutsus, Ultimates, or at least a different voice over to match their personality, but i doubt that’ll happen. I’d also like to see if they’d make all Characters Playable rather than Support Only, at least throw that out as DLC. If this truly is the last Naruto Game of the Storm Series, they should at least try to milk the hell out of this cash cow by making Fan Desired DLC.

  • http://www.facebook.com/brad.mckenzie.357 Brad McKenzie

    They probably wont be released outside of Japan because, you know, Why would cyberconnect 2 want to make a SHITLOAD OF MONEY! Seriously, I’m not surprised they are throwing their hat in the DLC ring.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    There are other factors, such as the different ratings (like Pegi 12 or T for “Teen”) in different regions. Sakura’s swimsuit outfit might, though I doubt it, be problematic in that department.
