It's been 2 months since Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 was released, and despite being praised as one the best Naruto games ever released, fans everywhere felt unhappy about the fact that characters such as the Edo Kages and the 7 Swordsman of the Mist were unplayable.
However, a new interview has been released with Hiroshi Matsuyama, CyberConnect2 (CC2) President and CEO. In the video, Matsuyama states that due to time constraints some characters get preference over others, and because of this, some characters were left out. But he continues on to say that he heard the fans requests to make these characters playable, and CC2 is taking serious consideration to make the Edo Kages available through DLC.
Although CC2 is just considering, this, added to the fact that some people managed to make them playable (only offline and by modifying Storm 3 saves), this gives fans some hope to see the Edo Kages finally playable in an official capacity.
