The thirst is real, but it’s soon about to be quenched! Last week, Bandai Namco Games America announced a demo was making it’s way to the PS3 and Xbox 360 and mentioned more details would be revealed on Monday. Well, Monday is here and they’ve stayed true to their good word! The demo will be available on Tuesday, July 1st for PlayStation 3 owners! Xbox 360 Gold Members will be able to download on Wednesday, July 2 and Xbox 360 Silver Members on Wednesday, July 9th. An exact time for the demo’s release was not revealed because that’s something not in Bandai Namco’s control, it will be up to Sony/Microsoft.
For Japan and Europe, the Naruto Storm Revolution demo is confirmed for July 2nd on the PlayStation 3. Europe will also receive the Xbox 360 demo and although we haven’t heard any exact details, Anime Games Online’s guess is the release structure will be similar to North America.
The demo will include online and offline modes. The online mode will be available from the demo’s release until July 23rd. After July 23rd, players will still be able to enjoy the demo in offline mode against the computer. Below are images from the Japanese version of the demo showing the online screen and character selection screen with Tailed Beast Mode Naruto (Minato/Kushina support), Sasuke (Itachi support), Kakashi (Guy support), and Mecha Naruto (Hinata/Naruto support).
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution is the latest game in Bandai Namco and CyberConnect2’s acclaimed Naruto Storm series. It will be for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
