Update January 30 Per official request, Saiyan Island has removed the image of the True Despair version featuring Madara and replaced it with the one without him. EB Games has also replaced the art.
Update January 24 EB Games Australia has Madara Uchiha on the True Despair box art. This doesn’t confirm him as a playable character, but in our mind, it definitely increases the chances! We’ve updated the image below. Thanks Tyler Casilio!
Namco Bandai Games has released the final art for the special editions of Naruto Storm 3 in Europe. These were also shown in Naruto Storm 3 – Trailer 5, but today they are here in image format! Fans in Europe can purchase two versions of the special edition – True Despair and Will of Fire. As you can see in the image below, True Despair features Rinnegan Tobi (who is currently calling himself Madara in the anime) and Kurama Mode Naruto (who fans on Saiyan Island often refer to as Tailed Beast Mode Naruto).
Namco Bandai Games Europe has mentioned fans should check with their local retailers to see what versions of Naruto Storm 3 and what pre-order bonuses they will carry as it may vary across the large continent.
