Masashi Kishimoto-designed character comes in three forms.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution‘s game-exclusive new character is “Mecha Naruto,” the latest issue of Jump magazine reveals.

Mecha Naruto, designed by series author Masashi Kishimoto, has three forms: standard mode, Kyubi Mode, and Kyubi Mode (Mecha Kurama Version).

Users can try out Mecha Naruto for themselves at Jump Festa this weekend, where Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution will be playable.

Thanks, @kazu4281.

    W…T…F…?

  • DesmaX

    They run out of characters, I guess

    • Renaldi Saputra

      maybe no..
      since this is an era of mecha, seems they’re just following trends now in Japan

      • Pyrofrost

        It has been “The Era of Mecha” in Japan for about 50 years.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          but in around 2006, there has been a lot of anime using mecha themes, even it’s a random 12 or 24 episode anime.. before 2006, very few, if there was, it had long episodes (30-50++) like eureka 7 or keroro

          • Pyrofrost

            Mecha anime started coming out and coming in it own in the 60’s and 70’s. However, there were lots of mecha anime in the 80’s and 90’s.
            Maybe it just started being noticed more in the west around then, but mecha has been a huge thing for a very long time.

            • Renaldi Saputra

              I knew, but as I said, most of them had quite long episodes like Mazinger or Go-Lion IIRC..
              animes now contains more random mecha with moeblob girls and fanservices or maybe another random anime with mechas..

              • Pyrofrost

                That’s less a sudden jump in the popularity of mecha, and more them just capitalizing off the already existing popularity of mecha.

                If anything, the jump in popularity in the mid~late 2000s was around moe, not mecha.

    • Pyrofrost

      My thoughts exactly.

  • DarthBrian

    oh jeez. o_O

  • SuperLuigi

    Everything I’ve known has been a lie.

    (Hopefully, this is either gets reversed imported or remains a consistent character in the games now.)

  • Yohann Piga

    This is getting ridiculous. What’s the point of this game??? They can’t even add more characters ’cause there hasn’t been any new characters in the anime. Why don’t they let it catch up with the manga before releasing a new game?

    They should make Impact 2 for Vita instead. This would be awesome!

  • xMCXx

    Mecha Kurama Version looks cool, though.

    I can just imagine the glitchy repeat of “datte bayo” coming out from this robotic Naruto.

  • Budgiecat
