Namco Bandai Games and CyberConnect 2 have stated Spring 2012 as the worldwide release date for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations. The question is, what does Spring 2012 mean? Does it mean March, April, or May? Well, According to Amazon.com and GameStop it’s neither! They have both listed February as the month Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations will be available for purchase in the United States. However, Amazon has listed February 28, 2012 as the release date, while GameStop has listed February 7, 2012. Both seem plausible since games in the US generally release on Tuesdays, but isn’t February considered the winter?
We’re sure discussion of these dates are going wild on the good ol’ Interwebz, but let us say that we highly doubt either will be the true release date. Of course we could be wrong, but the reason we think Generations won’t be released on February 7th or 28th is because of a similar scenario that happened with Storm 2 a year ago. Storm 2 was officially released in the United States on October 19, 2010. Both GameStop and Amazon had originally listed a different date, and like this case with Generations, neither date coincided with the other.
When Namco Bandai Games or CyberConnect 2 release the official date, we’ll be sure to let you know! We thought it was a good idea to address the e-mails we received last night in regards to GameStop and Amazon’s Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations product page updates.
