UPDATE: THIS RUMOR HAS BEEN CONFIRMED TRUE!
Please visit the following pages for updates:
Naruto Storm 3 – ANBU Kakashi, Road to Ninja Sasuke, Swimsuit Sakura DLC
Naruto Storm 3 – Tailed Beast Mode Naruto Confirmed (New Scan)
Rumor has it the next issue of Jump will reveal Japan’s release date for Naruto Storm 3 as April 18th! That’s over a month after North America / South America’s March 5th and Europe / Australia’s March 8th release date.
However, Japan will be getting a demo of the game in February. In Anime Games Online’s experience, those with a Japanese PlayStation Network account will likely be able to enjoy the demo even if they live somewhere else in the world. No exact date was revealed, but at the latest, we should be getting a demo in late February. That assumes North America, South America, Europe, and Australia doesn’t get their own version of the demo, but we think that’s unlikely.
In addition, the rumor states as a pre-order bonus, Japanese fans will be able to get a downloadable costume for Hinata. Which costume? The one from Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie! She’s pictured on the right. It’s unclear if this will be available for fans of other territories.
As always Anime Games Online considers information like this a rumor so please wait until the scan has been released to call it official! If history is any indication though, it’s likely we will get our confirmation this weekend, if not today!
