The North American demo having been delayed at the last minute for an unexplained reason yesterday, Bandai Namco has announced that Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution will come to the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on September 12 in Europe, with a North American release scheduled for September.
Bandai then gave out further details regarding the Day 1 (Rivals) and Collector’s (Samurai) Editions:
The newly revealed DVD “Sunny Side Battle”, featuring Itachi Uchiha as main protagonist, will be included for all Rivals and Samurai Editions! Along with this amazing add-on, Itachi Apron Costume for Sasuke’s elder brother will be redeemable as a DLC for free!
They also revealed some new characters:
The Hidden Leaf Village in the country of Fire was created by two legendary ninjas who had their differences. Hashirama Senju (The God of Shinobi), also known as the first Hokage, and Madara Uchiha (The strongest Uchiha and the man with the Mangekyo Sharingan) crossed swords and Jutsus during a deadly bout in the Valley of the End. Naruto Shippuden fans will be able to live this epic opposition once again (in the characters’ Reanimation versions) through the free battles in the upcoming Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution! Which Jutsu will win, The True Thousand Hands or the Complete “Susano’o”?!
As well, the North American PlayStation Vita release of One Piece: Unlimited World Red was given a launch date of July 15, one week after the PS3 version. The Red Stands Alone DLC will be free to download on either system at launch.
