Based on the list of achievements and trophies for Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, there seems to be a confirmation of Uchiha Madara. You'll notice that one of the ones listed is titled, "Uchiha Against Five Kage". Those who know the series will recall what part this is referring to. At the very least, it seems as though Madara will make an appearance in the story mode. However it remains to be seen whether or not he will be a playable character.
Developer CyberConnect2 confirmed the incoming closure of its satellite office in Montreal, Canada. At the end of July, it'll be shutting down its only other office beyond the main one stationed in Fukuoka, Japan.

No mention was made in the developer's statement about if it will offer any severance or transitional help to those about to be laid off.
CyberConnect2 boss Hiroshi Matsuyama has confirmed that a new .hack game is in development! in its 20th anniversary concert.
Immersed Gamer writes: "Let Me Solo Her is a legendary Elden Ring player who mastered one of the most infamous bosses to help his fellow tarnished via co-op. And for his service, he received an award from Namco Bandai to commemorate his 1,000th victory. The reward in question is a real, and extremely dope, custom-made sword.
Malenia is regarded as the hardest boss in Elden Ring, and the relentless Tarnished has defended literally thousands of hosts against this malice. Let Me Solo Her apparently passed 2,000 Malenia kills a while back, but it’s hard to measure the exact count he is at now. Bandai Namco sent the gift his way when he was at around 1,000 kills. But due to the nature of the object, it got stuck in customs for a while!"
