fans are in for a treat, as BANDAI NAMCO have announced that their upcoming game, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4
, is slated to launch with a special Collector's Edition variant. The Collector's Edition is set to come with the full game, an exclusive illustrated metal-plated case, a seventeen-centimeter Naruto Uzumaki figurine, and a Storm Memories artbook; all thrown together inside one convenient box.
Additionally, by simply pre-ordering the game from "notable retailers", you can grant yourself a "pack of awesomeness" free of charge. If you're wondering just what a pack of awesomeness entails, then sit back and take a deep breath. In this pack comes some early access character skins, as well as an exclusive Kakashi skin, and two playable characters in Boruto and Sarada. If that's not a tempting pre-order bonus, I don't know what is.
All of that and there's still more. For those with a little extra money in their pockets, a very limited run of Ultra Collector Figurines have been made. These figurines are resin 1/6th scale statues with fluctuating heights and lengths respective to the characters. However, these will cost you a nasty €339.00 a piece.
Herve Hoerdt, Vice President of Marketing & Digital at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment had this to say about Ultimate Ninja Storm 4
's upcoming release:
This year is an amazing one for all NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM lovers: an amazing partnership with TSUME-Art, a highly exclusive Collector’s Edition, tons of never-before-seen characters to be playable and much more to come in the upcoming months! BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment and CyberConnect2 are looking to surpass every NARUTO SHIPPUDEN game ever created and deliver an amazing video-game experience!
As if to put a cherry atop of it all, we're gifted a new gameplay trailer. In this one we find the six-pathed Madara Uchiha take on the famous and now re-assembled Team 7.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4
will be available for the Xbox One this fall. There are no mentions of how much the Collector's Edition version of the game will be, but when we find out, we'll be sure to let you know.
