Looks like the scheduled Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 DLC Hello Kitty costume for Sakura has arrived earlier than expected on Xbox Live – we thought it was coming tomorrow, but it’s already up on the Marketplace, priced 240MSP (£2.06/€2.88/$3). There’s no sign of it on the EU PSN, so we’re still expecting it to appear tomorrow, 24 April, as scheduled.

Here’s a trailer for the Hello Kitty pack:

Also taking us by surprise is a new Swimsuit Pack, which is up on the Xbox Live Marketplace now, priced 160MSP (£1.37/€1.92/$2). The content consists of bikinis for Sakura and Ino, and one-piece swimsuits for Hinata and Temari. We’ve contacted NamcoBandai to find out if/when this Swimsuit DLC might be coming to PSN [Update: Both packs are out now on the EU PS Store.
