Oh I absolutely love when things like this happen. True or false, fact or fiction, real or otherwise, I simply love when a big company like Microsoft fumbles just a little bit and releases certain pieces of information early. It’s happened once again; this time the upcoming Bandai Namco Games title Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 has gotten it’s release date leaked early by Microsoft who have made the game available to pre-order online.
Hitting up the Microsoft Store and going for a bit of a wander trying to find the game will eventually bring you to a page that’ll tell you all the usual stuff; price, console, rating and, event though it hasn’t been officially announced…the release date. Yes indeed, it seems as though the Microsoft Store has provided the pop culture world with a little too much information, and it comes in the form of an unofficial release date. I say unofficial because, well, in this day and age it’s hard to tell what’s real and what’s not.
Because of how simply a situation this is, I’m going to go ahead and say that this is indeed real. Slip ups like this happen all the time, especially in the video game industry, it’s not crazy to think that Microsoft would make a mistake that many others have in the past. I’m sure the heads over at Bandai Namco Games aren’t too happy about it but one thing I can say for certain is that the fans sure are happy!
Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is listed to be getting a North American release on the 18th of August this year. If this is true then you can expect to see it on local shelves on the 18th, if not…well you’ll just have to wait a little longer. It’s pretty simple.
