At WonderCon in March, CyberConnect2 CEO and President Hiroshi Matsuyama revealed Pirate and Cowboy costumes for Naruto. Today, Namco Bandai Games has released those two pieces of downloadable content (DLC) along with five other costumes – Matador Naruto, Gondolier Naruto, Kimono Naruto, Lederhosen Naruto, and Napoleon Sasuke. If you’ve noticed, yes, these have somewhat of an international flavor to them.
A Matador is a bullfighter in Spanish-speaking countries. A Gondolier is a person who steers a boat, like the one seen in Venice, Italy. Kimono is obviously clothing worn in Japan. Lederhosen is a type of clothing often seen in Germany. Lastly, Nepolean is a former French military and political leader.
Note: Currently these are released on Europe’s Xbox Marketplace, with PlayStation Network coming tomorrow. North America will get it both for Xbox 360 and PS3 later today. The price is $2.99 in the USA, so it won’t be free.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is Namco Bandai Games and CyberConnect2’s fourth entry in the Storm series. It was released for the PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 in North America/South America on March 5 and Europe/Australia on March 8, and will be released in Japan on April 18, 2013. The story for the game will begin with the Nine Tailed Fox incident from 16 years ago, continue on to the Five Kage Arc, and go up to the Shinobi War, covering the latest episodes of Naruto Shippuden as they air in Japan.
