The 4th Hokage, Minato Namikaze has been confirmed to be playable in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2! The news comes from Amazon.de, which in it’s list of features for a collector’s edition, states Minato as a playable character from the beginning.
The collector’s edition in question is for European fans who will get the obvious Storm 2 game disc along with a laser cell, special packaging, and as stated earlier, Minato playable from the very beginning. We anticipate American fans will also receive some form of a collector’s edition, but that hasn’t been confirmed.
Whether playable from the beginning in a collector’s edition or an unlockable character in the standard edition, the Hidden Leaf Village’s 4th Hokage has been confirmed playable in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2!
