Xbox 360 owners, Namco Bandai Games Japan has revealed the Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations demo will only be for the PS3. That doesn’t rule out a Xbox 360 demo for North American or European fans at a later date, but on January 24th, only PS3 owners will be able to enjoy the demo. There wasn’t a reason given, but it makes sense since the demo is being officially release for Japan, where sales of the Xbox 360 are pretty low. Good news, at least for PS3 owners, is that even if you are not from Japan, you should be able to download the demo with a Japanese PlayStation Network account!
As a quick recap, and as the image shows below, the demo will put you in the place of Naruto to fight Sasuke, Pain, and Masked Madara (serious Tobi). The demo will also include original animation by Studio Pierrot to give an opening to Naruto’s story.
