At Namco Bandai Editors' Day 2008, Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm game director Hitoshi Matsuyama explains why the game for the PlayStation 3 will be it's own anime genre. The game will feature a Battle Mode and Mission Mode. The core concept of the Battle Mode is one on one fighting, no online mode however. They are going to include downloadable content though. The Mission Mode (single-player) reenacts episodes 1-135. It will probably be open world (our thoughts). He also mentions the game will be released in the United States first, before any other country.The game is going to release in October 2008 and a demo should arrive in the Summer.
