Whether it’s for Europe or North America, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations has been officially confirmed by Namco Bandai Games for release in 2012. We wonder, though, what is the exact date that us fans can experience the electrifying storm?
Well, the folks over at IGN have recently revealed that Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations will be released in the Spring of 2012 in North America. We aren’t exactly sure how correct they are with the North American release date as they have listed 2011 as the Japanese release date when we thought 2012 was also the release date for Japan. Of course, we don’t recall a Japanese release date ever being announced, so they could be right.
Anyways, if Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations were to release in the Spring of 2012, it’s likely March or May would be the two months which it would release in. That is, if history is any indication. Ultimate Ninja 3 for PS2 was promoted to come out in the Spring, and it was officially released on March 25, 2008. Ultimate Ninja 4 on PS2 came out in March 24, 2009, Ultimate Ninja Heroes for PSP came out May 11, 2010, and Kizuna Drive for PSP was released March 22, 2011. Same thing with TOMY’s Naruto games. Clash of Ninja, Ninja Council, and Path of the Ninja games all slated for Spring releases in North America came out in March or May. Never April.
So again, if Spring 2012 is for real and history is any indication, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations will have a North American release of March or May. Of course it can release in April since that is a Spring month, but our bets are on the “M” months. We will definitely let you guys know right here on Anime Games Online once we hear of the official release date for North America as well as Europe and Japan
