UPDATE JANUARY 21 Namco Bandai Games Europe has confirmed this scan is fake! Looks like we will have to wait a bit longer to see if Madara is in the game.
Uchiha…MADARA! Anime Games Online’s Omnitrix has come across a suspicious image in the format of a scan featuring the legendary shinobi and Leaf Village co-founder. It has Madara in his Edo Tensei form in what looks to be free battle mode. The “scan” also shows what look to be Naruto and Sasuke about to engage in a jutsu clash. Oh yes, Menma from Road to Ninja: Naruto the movie is hanging in the left hand corner too!
Normally images are a confirmation of characters, but this potential scan comes at an odd time – Sunday night / Monday morning! Even though Shonen Jump officially releases on Mondays, scans are generally leaked between Wednesday to Sunday morning. Just as a note, there have been fakes in the past, and this may be one of them.
Again, it’s unknown if this Naruto Storm 3 Madara “scan” is fake or legit. We’ll have to wait in the coming weeks, if not later this week, to find out for sure. Stay tuned to Anime Games Online for the latest!
