Today, Namco Bandai Games Europe has published a press release in regards to the Naruto Generations Card Edition. We’ve been hearing about this European-exclusive for a little while know and have been waiting some more details. The press release below provides a little more information, but not enough to gratify our curiosity. We hope even more on this will be released soon.
In case you are wondering where to buy, from our understanding this will be available across video game selling retailers in Europe. Since the European release date is March 30th, over a month away, some retailers may not have actually put this in their system.
There is no word on a North American release date. As far as we know, GameStop USA will be offering one card, but that’s it.
From launch day on 30th March 2012, NARUTO fans will be able to get their hands on the exclusive NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations Card Edition alongside the standard retail version of the game.
For the first time in the Naruto video Game series, NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations will feature an innovative system that integrates real-world collectible cards with the video game. The cards from the booster pack will each carry a code allowing players to unlock corresponding artwork for their in-game profile card and engage in a special mini-battle to unlock a bonus skill and gain an advantage in the network battle.
This Card Edition will include: a card Starter Set, a poster with an exclusive message from Masashi Kishimoto celebrating the 10 million units sales of the Naruto Video games from NAMCO BANDAI Games and the game disc with a card booster pack.
