Europe will enjoy Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations come March 30th. There will be a European-exclusive Card Edition that will contain the Generations game itself, a special poster with words from Masashi Kishimoto, a collectible card game starter pack and a booster pack. The starter pack will contain 50 cards and the booster pack will have 8 cards. These cards will allow players to unlock abilities and other bonus content through codes that can be entered in the game. What abilities and bonuses exactly? Namco Bandai Games Europe will provide more details in the near future.
As for North America there is no word on a limited edition or a card edition at this time, but GameStop (USA) will be offering a free collectible card to those who order through them. This is a physical card (that will probably have a code on it like Europe) that will allow players to unlock an exclusive emblem for their Ninja Info Card in the video game. GameStop says “once unlocked, use your cool new Ninja Info Card to gain an all-important stat boost for online play in Custom Ranked Matches.” There is no information on what stat will be boosted, but we have a feeling it will show up in some fashion on the rhombus shown in the Sakura screenshot. You can check out the American PS3 GameStop page here and the Xbox 360 page here
We hope to have more information once it’s released.
