This year's 24th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is announcing on Monday that Kushina Uzumaki — Naruto's mother — will join the roster of Namco Bandai Games' Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution (Narutimate Storm Revolution) PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 fighting game. Her weapon of choice is a flying pan.
The news comes straight from Shonen Jump magazine which also confirms Kushina will be featured in the game-exclusive anime movie, Shinobu Katsugeki.
Kushina will also appear in the in-game "Shinobu Katsugeki" Mode anime movie. The game and anime will reveal a previously secret chapter about how Kushina interacted with Minato Namikaze (Naruto's father) and his team (Kakashi, Obito, and Rin).
Compared to the previous entries in Bandai Namco Games' franchise, this upcoming game will feature new gameplay mechanics, including the Combination Ultimate Jutsu attacks that allow players to combine powers to create more powerful techniques. The game will also feature more than 100 playable characters from both the Naruto and Naruto Shippuden anime.
The ninja fighting game will ship in Japan for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this fall.
