This year's combined 36th/37th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is revealing on Monday that Namco Bandai Games' Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 (Naruto Shippuden: Narutimate Storm 3) will feature a "Hokage" Naruto costume. The costume is available if the player has the save data from the earlier Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations (Naruto Shippuden: Narutimate Storm Generations) game. A Hokage Naruto outfit also appears in the recent Naruto Shippuden film.
The same Weekly Shonen Jump issue also revealed that Mifune, the General of the Land of Iron, and Hanzō, the former Amegakure leader, will be playable characters in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3.
Namco Bandai Games confirmed in June that it will release the ninja fighting action game for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles in Japan in 2013. Namco Bandai Games producer Yūsuke Sasaki promised a more solid story than before, and added that the team is aiming to develop the combat system further. Namco Bandai Games America representative Jason Enos presented a gameplay demo at Comic-Con Internaional: San Diego last month, and added that the game is slated for North America next spring.
