Well if the storyline is an AU (is there any point to it being canon then?) then I hope they do their best to cover all bases for butterfly effect changes. If Tobi's invasion failed or didn't happen then Kushina should still be the kyuubi host if she followed in Mito's footsteps and keeps it until old age which should limit Naruto's power.
I'm not sure how much personalities of characters would be affected. I guess Naruto shouldn't be a failure which means Hinata might not idolize him and maybe Kakashi would start off nicer. Everyone else seems like they should be the same unless the village prospered under Minato which spurred some changes in people. Looking at the poster I'm curious if Tobi is a villain or the villain.
You might recall that a while back, Kishimoto did a cover illustration with Naruto as a kid grabbing breakfast from Kushina while running out the door past Minato, and it had a caption that said something like, "Another morning just like any other!"
So obviously Kishimoto had considered the possibility of such an alternate reality in the past.
I think that seems very possible.
Also, looks like you can see that Naruto's got a seal on his stomach, so he probably still became Jinchuuriki. It's hard to see, but it might not be the Eight Trigram Seal that Minato gave him.
Another possibility -- could it be the result of Tobi's Project Tsuki no Me? An illusion where the world's seemingly peaceful? Maybe a story to explain how an illusion of peace is a flawed concept and won't actually work.

I like this, too^^Quote:
Blah forget that Kishi make a movie about the 1st and Madara's era thats what we REALLY want!
Whoa,I just noticed that the tattoo on Kiba's cheek is different.
Great catch on the Kiba fang tattoo! Yep, this looks to be an AU. You can also see that Choji is skinny(for him). And Shikamaru's hair is slightly different than how Kishi usually draws it. And Gai's expression is definitely not like Gai.
I'am shocked... Kakashi's and Shino's facial expressions also seem to have been swaped!
Tagline on the poster says, "Friends and family, for the sake of the mission they risk their lives." (仲間と家族、この任務に命をかける)
Might be a little while longer before we get any concrete info on it.
But theres diffently is something odd with hinata and ino. Hintata, showing off so much skin, wearing a top, and Ino, wearing so much clothes and her hair is all wrong too.. I think it's just a body swap, tho the other theorys sounds much cooler
Hi guys, it's my first post here, been lurking for a while but i think it's time for me to participate a bit too
Here's a bigger clean pic of the cover, Kiba's tattoos are indeed different, more like 4 or 5 lines rather than the usual fang-like markings.
