YOSH! Mifune along with Hanzo and Hokage Naruto will be playable in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3! At least that’s according to Japanese blog TaleTaleSource, which often correctly reveals information that will be in the up-coming issue of Shonen Jump.
Mifune is the General from the Land of Iron while Hanzo is the former Hidden Rain Village leader. Since the up-coming episodes of Naruto Shippuden will feature Hanzo in the reincarnated form through Edo Tensei, that is the version we can expect to be playable. And if you remember Hokage Naruto from Naruto Storm 2, well, he is making a comeback! He will be playable from the start if you have a Naruto Generations save file on your PS3/360.
Before getting too excited on this, let it be known, Anime Games Online considers Mifune, Hanzo, and Hokage Naruto’s playable status a rumor. The only way we can consider this legitimate is if we get a Shonen Jump scan or word by another official source, like CyberConnect2, confirming this information.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is Namco Bandai Games and CyberConnect2’s fourth entry in the Storm series. It will be available for the Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 in Japan, North America, and Europe sometime Spring 2013.
