Namco Bandai Games America has recently released the features list for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations! Looking at the list, developer CyberConnect2 has really listened to the fans! They have actually listened to some our our suggestions here on Saiyan Island! Some of the things we wished for include online tournaments, the ability to watch other fights, and record fights. All features, as you can see below, will be in the game! We also wished for an online lobby room with text chat. They did us one better and have implemented a lobby room with voice chat! With exactly two months to go in the Japanese release, it’s possible we could see even more exciting new features. As for now, the features list from publisher Namco Bandai Games America:

            15 Support Characters?
            -Darui, C, Kurotsuchi, Akasuchi, Fuu, Torune, Chojuro, Ao, Tayuya, Jirobo, Sakon/Ukon, Kidomaru, Anko, Kurenai, and Shizune

            That’s very disappointing.

            Well, you should have expected this. But, I’m not sure how that’s going to work for the story mode when facing the Sound 4.

            Yes, and again CC2 made boring the Sasuke Retrival Arc. like Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm.
            Thanks CC2, thanks for ruin the best Arc in the first part.

            So….that’s 69 confirmed playable characters and 10 confirmed support-only characters so far. Wonder who the other 6 are…..

          • Anonymous

            In the same form that the first game, one member of the Shikamaru Platoon with other like support, fight agains Kimimaro with two of the Sound Four like support, CC2 don´t hear the fans.

            And when and where we can see the real list of the characters? Sorry for disturb a lot but I’m really sad beacuse I´m sure that the sound four are the last support with Shizune.

          • Anonymous

            Face it…that’s not happening for this game. It’s a 2.5 version. It’s just a few updated characters, new characters, more story mode, more multiplayer features, a few new fighting features….and that’s about it….

            You call it a “few of updates”? ffs.. this is awesome

          • Anonymous

            hahaha! why am I not surprised that the sound 4 are only support still probably going to get the game but cc2 just lost some of my respect like seriously first ninja storm1 now generations??? why is it even called generations if there not going to let us be some of the most important people from the pre time skip naruto? awell i guess……….. -_- Oh and for the people who kept telling me i was wrong about them being support what do you have to say now? Like i said i heard from like 12 different people that they were confirmed as support characters on twitter so eat it! And don’t say that this doesn’t mean they are support because who the hell else is going to be the 15 support characters besides the body guards, kurenai, shizune, and anko? if you know please let me know i would be happy to take my words back about what i just said earlier and why the hell would 12 different people tell me this if it wasn’t true and true plus the info I looked up awhile back ago and cc2 announcing this on twitter? Anyways still going to be a pretty legit game :) … People who told me I was wrong or i was dum for saying that they were support earlier they can suck it..

            nice very cool 75 characters playable is very cool 15 support is cool too

          • Jackson Campoz

            I dont understand.. How can they make a useless Fan-less character like KARIN playable, But unique fan-favorite characters like the sound 4 “support only”?? Ill still get the game, But it will only be 96% Bad ass… Hmm i wonder where the other 4% is??
            -__-

          • Anonymous

            Ok, I was holding out my complaining until I knew for sure the sound 4 were in or not. This is ridiculous!!! How can a stupid character like Karin be in the game, SHE HASN’T EVEN FOUGHT ONCE, and ABSOLUTELY CRUCIAL characters like the sound 4 not make the cut???!!? That is just horrible. CC2 has done a lot of great things with this game, Obito, young kakashi, and kages to name a few, but this is unacceptable. Go ahead. Push the date back to Summer for all I care. It is inexcusable for the Sound 4 not to be in the game. I’m almost 100% sure they won’t be in based on this new post. That’s cool CC2. You just lost, what like 9 or 10 good story battles. The BEST ARC HANDS DOWN of the first series, GONE. Stupid BS. If i’m wrong, and the sound 4 are in fact playable, I’ll be soo happy and I’ll take back all of this, but until that happens, this is were I stand… smh

            haha ikr? im still getting the game too and it’s still going to be pretty cool but it’s like first ninja storm 1? now generation? they are very crucial characters to the pre time skip naruto series and to me i feel like it’s not completely generations  without them playable ya they may be in the game as support but it’s like you can put in crappy karin or ino or some shit like that but not 4 badasses it kinda sux but whatevs I gues lol. if i can’t be them im going to have them as my support characters a lot lol.

            Look at my comment (the one right below this one)

          • Jackson Campoz

            Right on with you man.. Having Kimimaro without the sound four is like having Pain with no konan.. Not cool-

          • http://twitter.com/ibrahim901 ibrahim

            no sound 4 but doesn’t matter now cant do anything

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

            Why is everyone assuming the Sound 4 are not playable? By my count, we have about 69-70 confirmed characters. That leaves 5-6 left. Also, notice they said 33 new characters. That puts Storm 2′s count at 42 + 33 = 75, not 44 like they said in an interview. This means this time around, they may not count the different Narutos/Sasukes with different ultimates/awakenings as separate characters, only ones with completely different movesets like susanno and sage. That gives us another 2-3 slots. So in the end, we have possibly 5-10 slots left. That’s more then enough to fit 4 characters even if Jirobo’s fat ass will take up two slots.

          • Anonymous

            Your argument is very good, but they say that are 15 support characters, thats mean that 5 more characters are going to be support, the sound four and shizune were support in the first game and are the only characters no annunced who appear in some of the videos. Thet are the only characters who could be these support.

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

            I see what you’re saying, and your right it looks that way. But then who fits into that, at least, 4-5 slots left? They’d be pretty big surprises if they’re not the Sound 4.

          • Jackson Campoz

            You know you could be very right, there are 5 five more slots for playable characters, and a few more for support only.. If they do include “every naruto character” as they promised, Then the sound four will take those last playable spots. the remaining support only positions will then be filled with characters such as- Iruka, Konohamaru, Baki, etc.. does this make sense?

          • Anonymous

            I want to quote what daewoo94 said. I never even thought about dat since Karin is so damn garbage. Why in the world would Karin make the cut but not sound 4 and now that u mention it im sure the sound 4 will be in since kimmimaru is confirmed and the other 6 characters that havent been confirmed is most likely sound 4 and 2 other people and spam there feedback page that we need the sound 4. Everything is perfect as far as i know since its basically confirmed that we have spectator mode which is just Fking amazing.

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

            Yeah, that’s what I was thinking. I know how it looks right now, but it’s possible some support only characters haven’t been revealed yet, and the Sound 4 will be playable.

          • Anonymous

            I didn’t think of not counting the Sasukes and Narutos with the same movesets as the same characters. They could easily do like they did in Storm 2 and keep them in one slot, but you could choose which one you wanted. There are 69 confirmed right now if they count all of them as separate characters. That leaves 6. If your theory is true, then that would leave 7-10 open slots. If the sound 4 are playable, then that would leave 3-6 more open slots. There’s bound to be surprise characters besides Naruto in his new form.

            if u go back and look at the saiyanisland post titled “naruto generations:a look at past and present characters” they counted 72 characters(kabuto wasnt in this one so basically make it 73) and in that 73 were the sound 4, kurenai, anko, and shizune but none of the kage support char. so one can assume all of those are playable and since its only 73 the only 2 characters i think they can add are konohamoru and well i dont no who else, u can guess that one. However, on the other side of the coin they just said there will be 15 support characters and the only characters to have been classified or rumored to be support are danzous support (2), mizukages (2), raikage (2), tsuchikage (2), sound 4 (4), anko, kurenai, and shizune. If u add that it equals 15. So by all my research and calculation the only thing thats really confirmed is that nothing is really confirmed lol. So dont lose hope but at the same time dont get your hopes up. Poster just used (EXTREME OXYMORON), reader is now confused.

            bullshit they didnt read and take ANY bodies suggestions on this site, majority of everyone here wanted more playable characters, clashes, more health , awakening mode in beginning and instead they replace all these with room chats?
            replay mode great, but not really if the fights end less than 40 secs with the lack of more health. LAME the only reason people , including i , is for the additonal characters.
            this is starting to sound very familiar with the dbz crap games these days. how the hell do dbz/naruto go from great to lame with extra

            Im about to defend CC2 a little bit. Everyone is bashing CC2 over the sound 4 and a few tweaks that wasnt put in the game. 
             I have news for those people who likes to bash, CC2 has added many new features to the game bc of the fan suggestion also there are more fans thats beyond saiyan island that made suggestions. Just bc we THINK some of our suggestions hasnt been added we go on a rampage instead of waiting to c if its confirm of not. 

            The game hasnt even come out yet and people are acting like they beat the story mode and everything. People are “mad” and “disappointed” over a game thats not going to come out to NA until march. Hence a lot of improvement can be made in the time span of now till feburary. 

            Also like i stated b4 its only a PRE sequel, what do u expect from them? CC2 said that the purpose of this game was to tweak the battle sytem a little and roster update. so whats with these expectations of clash, every ninja in naruto, Madara, tobi with new mask, covering the entire war arc even though the manga isnt even done covering it, wanting every old character to magically have brand new moves for no reason. 

            Im not saying that yall are wrong for asking for this stuff im just saying stay realistic while asking for off the wall stuff. Remember this is a business of course they not going to give us everything we want bc they will use that idea later when making a new game, to make us want to buy it. CC2 may care for the fans, but money and strategy is first and any game company will make a imperfect game just to get u to buy the next one with the feature you always wanted in it.

            I honestly think its not that hard to add Konohamaru, Anbu Itachi… Darui, Baki, Taijutsu naruto… in a XBOX 360 or PS3 disc, i mean it only takes them about 1 week to make all of that and that would make a lot of people happy, beside some of those where already in earlier games.

            exactly, people forget that CC2 dont make games for fun, its for money. why would they just put everything in one game? thats dumb, If they put some good stuff in then take some good stuff out then thats leaving room for more games and more improvement. People in hear need to take a econ class LOL

          • Anonymous

            well, eventually they are going to have everything in it, at least for storm 3. And they dont have to take things out just to come out with a newer edition and make money. Thats what DLC is for. Hell when they cover the entire manga they still have room to add things like create a character, custom story mode, expanding online even further, holding specific events, customizing moves for existing characters, making a Vita version with unique controls and features, etc.

            The day that they start taking things out then reintroducing them is the moment they become like Madden…and the moment i stop buying their games.

            I don’t mean to sound whiny…But the sound 4 arc is my all time fav arc in naruto. I would really love to play as them. CC2 listened to fans about haku and zabuza, Idk why they wouldn’t for the sound 4, the 2nd most requested characters after. I would really appreciate the love. ;)
            (I swear if someone comments on this and says, “nah konohamaru”, I’m going to kill you, impure world resurrect you, and make you kill your family, then bring them back, and have you kill them again over and over.)

            yup the screen showed all playable characters, 73 + 2 (new susake n new naruto)

          • Inlovewithmusic122

            jermar made a good and valid observation. Before, when the trailer with all the characters was released, saiyanisland pointed out that their were ’73′ characters shown in the opening trailer (including Kabuto who was missing). All of which included the sound 4, Anko, and Kurenai…Now they have confirmed that there are 75 playable characters and 15 support. If you notice, none of the Kage support characters are present in the line up, which COULD mean that most of the playable characters (73) are the ones being shown in the opening line up.

            really hope this is not are the oficial charather roster yet if it are i will be a little dissapointet the reason i  say little are this is are not storm 3 they will probably put a shitload of new gamplay features and new online features and many other things we want and A LOT OF NEW CHARATHERS FROM THE WAR AND THE WAR IS FAR FROM OVER YET so thats a good thing but they could still put anko kurenai shizune and the sound 4 in the game as playable charathers but we can still hope

            Hey guys, don’t you think the nine tails will be a playable character,Naruto will fight him as boss and Minato will fight him like gameplay in Kushina’s flashback. And oh, maybe Kushina, Naruto’s mom will be support.

          • http://twitter.com/martijnwp martijn

            If you looked to the past and present characters there were show 72 characters. With out the bodyguards. Danzo/kabuto would make 74. So might still a change for shizune/anko/kurenai/sound four. So just keep on the hope… So am still guessing what character would fitt the place for 75

            I think they shouldn’t have made support-characters, I mean Karin didn’t use any jutsus or else but they still coul do her as normal character in strom 2. Correspondingly, they  coul have made the other guys, too. Darui for example who has already used suiton, raiton, ranton and even has a sword!

            The story mode couldn’t be complete without the Sound 4. This arc is amazing so it would be a massive mistake is Kimimaro was the only one playable and the only one we can fight in the story mode.
            In a DBZ game, that would be like not putting n°17, 18 & 16 and just adding Cell.

            although I would like having them in the game and the arc was nice, they arent that important, Kimimaro was supposed to be the next host, was as strong as orochimaru and his destiny/life objective was to insure sasuke was protected and reached orochimaru, which resonates to this day through jugo. the sound 4 were side characters in this objective, and thus themselves dealt with side characters in their battles. In dragonball z, we wouldnt driectly have cell in his final form if we did not have 17 and 18, they ‘directly’ influenced the sequence of events, and 16 was a ‘direct’ factor in gohan becoming ss2. 

            I’m not saying they shouldnt be in this game, infact anyone can see they would have very obvious awakenings and movesets, its just that your reason for them being in, comparing them to the importance of the plot, is not a valid argument. they should be in because they would ‘add’ to the quality of the story, and provide 4 more characters for fans to enjoy

          • Daniel Lee

            Danzo and the sound 4 are on the list of the past n present characters! So with Kabuto, it’s 73. 2 more slots. My guess is the new alternative susake and naruto (Susanoo n 9 tails chakra mode naruto = 75!).

          • kuroitheblack

            If we set our thoughts on the mere datas they released, we come to a good, and to a bad news.
            First of all, they say the game will have 75 fully-playable characters, and 33 that were not in Ninja Storm 2. The new characters revealed so far are:

            -Naruto, Sakura and Sasuke PTS
            -Hinata, Shino and Kiba PTS
            -Lee, Neji and Tenten PTS
            -Shikamaru, Ino and Choji PTS
            -Gaara, Temari and Kankuro PTS
            -First, second and third Hokages
            -Raikage, Mizukage and Tsuchikage
            -Zabuza and Haku
            -Obito and Young Kakashi
            -Danzo
            -Kimimaro
            -Naruto 9 tails chakra mode
            -Sasuke with Susanoo

            And that’s 29 characters. That means we could expect the sound 4 to be the next ones to be announced… but there is something else that has to be considered: The 15 support only characters.
            So far we have:
            -Shizune
            -Kurenai
            -Anko
            -Chojuro and Ao
            -Kurotsuchi and Akatsuchi
            -Shee and Darui
            -Fu and Torunè

            And that’s 11 characters. So the sound 4 could definetly be support only characters. The fact is, i think the possibilities of having the 4 fully-playable are few, just ask you this question: How many characters are left to be put in the “support-only team”, aside of those 4? Zetsu, maybe. perhaps even Konohamaru or Baki (pretty useless if you ask me), but then? it’s just more logical to add 4 new brand characters and leave those 4 to be support only, or to add those 4 fully playable and just come up with forced support only choices? 

            I mean, sincerely, it makes more sense to have the sound 4 as support only and to have 4 new fully-playable characters, some of them even as secret ones (still hoping for a fully playable serious Tobi XD).

            And, as a last observation: Jiraya is not confirmed to have two different version (PTS and Sage Mode), but in the last trailer hints were released that so it will be. And that brings the number of fully-playable characters up to 30, with only 3 empty places left.
            I think you’ve got my hint ;D

            Also if they are talking about the awakening characters being “playable characters” (ex: 9 tails Naruto, Curse Mark 2 Sasuke) then it’s definitely a sealed deal for them four. And that’s what i’m fearing, considering their stating Tailed Beast Mode Naruto as being playable even though he’s an awakening is just drawing closer to this theory.

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_TIBKRVK42SVKOUY33ZUVTONSRU Ali Alrazak

            thats a good theory, but I thought 9 tailed chakra mode was an awakening, unless its an awakening for a new naruto character (I thought you could swap between 4 tailed mode and 9 tailed chakra mode) should you really count it as a playable character,  I don’t think we should, other wise with cursed mark form, 8 gates young lee (the one that actually has a full new when awakened moveset….god I’ve just realised we wont get to see this mode’s ultimate, the iconic ultimate on gaara, unless they make it normal young lee’s ultimate) etc would be considered separate characters too

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_TIBKRVK42SVKOUY33ZUVTONSRU Ali Alrazak

            when did they confirm tailed beast mode as a separate character? if they did then why not count the other awakenings that give a full new moveset (again, the younger character awakenings, remember when gai’s awakening had  a full moveset and amazing ultimate), does that mean those awakenings can be played from the start (of course excluding sasunoo, 8 tailed mode bee etc, btw would have preferred a tailed mode awaking with a full moveset then a giant awakening with arbitrary strengths and weaknesses) because that would be a real good surprise for me

          • Anonymous

            Not separate but playable. A awakening character (ex: 9 Tails Naruto, Curse Mark 2 Sasuke) can be “playable” because you’re playing as them when you awaken. And that’s the point i was trying to make when it comes to the total amount of playable characters vs. the support only characters. If CC2 goes based off this, the lights will be dimming down on the sound 4 as being playable characters. Would i like to actually play as them? Yes. But i’m already prepared for them to be support only characters.

            What I want to see most is for Zetsu to finally be playable in a game. And also Version 2 of Killer Bee, also Jugo in full curse mark stage as it has been shown in the Anime and  Manga but they still got half curse mark mode?

          • Anonymous

            What i like:
            New online features and modes
            Original studio animated scenes
            Suprise new characters
            New fighting mechanics.

            What i dislike:
            Support only characters
            Certain characters not even in the game
            Pay to win ninja card effects
            Lazy arcade style story mode
            Re-using old movesets and animations

          • Anonymous

            most likely none. Just Naruto with his nine-tailed cloak. and that’s just an awakening

          • Sam Armistead

            As I doubt the awakening’s will be playable from the start they might have shown there art because they may be alternate costumes on the same character slot like Sasuke (Chidori True Spear) and Sasuke (Kirin) plus I can’t think of 4 other characters who have shown a much as the sound 4 to be considered playable over them so I have a hunch that due to high demand for them CC2 are going to do a surprise unveiling of them as the last characters to be announced.

            This is the confirmed SUPPORT characters…
            Darui, C
            Akatsuchi, Kurotsuchi
            Chojuro, Ao
            Fu, Torune
            Shizune, Anko, Kurenai
            THAT IS 70 PLAYABLE CHARACTERS and 11 SUPPORT CHARACTERS, so there is still hope for the SOUND 4. BUTTTT, there are many if’s and’s or but’s…
            First of all, I noticed that the sand trio, have different costumes. Gaara has the one where we first meet him, the sasuke retrieval, and the time skip costume. Temari and Kankuro have the same, but also the kage arc costume… This hopefully doesn’t mean new characters but you never know. The same is true for sasuke and naruto, for they have pajama mode and chunin mode. Also, since this is GENERATIONS, CC2 could add new younger versions of characters like Jiraiya or Orochimaru. This would also take up playable character spots and make the sound 4 not playable. The question is, if the different costumes mentioned above don’t count, WHO FITS THE SPOTS??? 5 more playable and 4 more suppport. The sound 4 ARE CONFIRMED for something, we just don’t know if playable or support. It would make sense for the sound 4 to be support, cause then it would just fill up the spots perfectly for support. I’m pretty sure the large majority of us are opposed to that idea. If the sound 4 are playable, the list of playable characters would be taken up to 74 so there would be room for one more. IDK who, if sound4 are support, would be the other 5 playable. Possibly kabutomaru? Serious tobi? Rinnegan Tobi? Konohamaru? Zetsu? IDK …dear god just include the sound 4. It’ll be the fans Christmas present

          • Sam Armistead

            Just worked out how many have confirmed so far plus the sound four (if they are in the game and it totals exactly 75 :D here i’ll show you. (i’ve worked it out based on character slots not alternate costumes etc.)
            4 Naruto’s (PTS, TS (Rasenshuriken and Nine-Tailed Rasengan), Sage Mode, and Kyuubi Mode)
            5 Sasuke’s (PTS, TS (Kirin) TS, (Chidori True Spear), Akatsuki, Taka)
            20 Konoha 10 (PTS and TS this doesn’t include Naruto, Sasuke hence the Konoha 10)
            8 Kages
            1 Danzo
            2 Sannin (Jiraiya, Orochimaru)
            2 Kakashi’s
            1 Asuma
            1 Guy
            1 Sai
            1 Yamato
            6 Sand Siblings (including Gaara here not with the Kage’s)
            9 Akatsuki
            2 Mist Ninja (Haku, Zabuza)
            3 Taka (Karin, Suigetsu, Juugo)
            1 Chiyo
            1 Killer Bee
            1 Obito
            1 Kimimaro
            1 Kabuto
            That’s a total of 71 characters leaving room for the Sound 4 and I can’t think of any other characters that have shown as much as them to warrant being playable so yeah there is still hope.

          • Sam Armistead

            the one missing character will be a fourth Naruto most likely with his kyuubi Chakra Mode I think CC2 has done this on purpose to tease us as there are 4 spots remaining in both categories of characters.

            i don’t know why but i just can’t get into naruto games but i use to love the anime but the fillers made meh lose interest.

          • kuroitheblack

            honestly, i think Naruto (with 9-tails chakra mode as his awakening) will be a separate character from Naruto as we saw him in NS2. That is mainly because it would make no sense to change Naruto (with rasenshuriken)’s awakening into thet new one, and also because of Sasuke Susanoo being a separate character as well (it is indeed true that he has also a different outfit during the Kage SUmmit arc, but I think it would just make more sense to make the last stage of their training/progress process to be separate from the other ones).

            This is just my theory, though.
            Of course we should wait for the official confirmation to decide, for now it is just speculations ;D

            I would rather prefer the sound 4 to be fully playable, too, but sadly I am starting to give up about that… I think it will be the only great disappointment of this game.

            Why do you even reply here, then? xD
            It is true that the fillers are a pain in the ass, but it is quite easy to just skip them and watch the whole series as it was meant to be.

          • kuroitheblack

            Not sure if we can trust him as much as you say, some time ago he also said that there was no chance at all to have characters from post Sasuke vs Danzo arc… so i just don’t feel like trusting anyone else that the official info that are released from CC2 themselves.

            for the team cyber connect 

            Now as much as I like awakening mode, 9-Tails chakra mode Naruto should be a fully playable character from the start like the way you guys did it in naruro ultimate storm 1 with choosing to play as there special form that made that game so much more fun instead of having a time limit to your favorite characters form please i beg the cyber connect team please think on this you wouldn’t just be making me happy but many that love your naruto games like if you guys decided to do this you could make naruto’s 9 tails awakening mode where he has the giant arms come out with the huge rasengans with the black rasengan or the mini shrunken’s again please think on this.

            “it makes more sense to have the sound 4 as support only and to have 4 new fully-playable characters”
            This doesn’t make any sense…

            Doesn’t it make more sense for them to be made fully playable…
            I mean they already have character models, Jutsu’s etc. the only thing they need is a moveset,. why use the same supports as storm 1. people were already pissed that those characters weren’t playable and now they simply keep them all as support.
            It’s more Logical to make the supports from storm 1 playable and put in new supports who in turn are then playable in NUNS3, characters from the war or those who have shown too little to have a moveset) like Zetsu, Kabuto*maru, Hanzo, Mifune, (real)Madara, Revived Hokage’s, the Jinchuriki’s, Konohamaru, etc.

          • Rafael Georgiou

            i believe cc2 will surprise us by putting some characters from war in it.Whats your opinion?

          • supersaiyanbardock

            Could be possible.

            you are confusing him with another, he never said that, he said Danzo and sasuke will be in game ofc, lol, you have to read or inform yourself before post xDD.. And yes, yokito have a kind of source

            I so wish from the bottom of my heart that your info would be true(anko, shizune, sound four, kurenai would be playable)

          • http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Madara_Uchiha うちはマダラ

            I hope so :D

          • http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Madara_Uchiha うちはマダラ

            They will most likely be playable, it would be strange if they just put some support-only characters in the middle of all playables. You never know!!! ;)

          • Trey Donnelly

            I’m not too sure about that since Naruto wiki isn’t exactly a 100% reliable source.

            Yeah Could be possible But sure this chars will stay for storm 3

          • http://www.ninjamanager.com/teams/16145 Kira

            75 Playable and 15 support? I hope The sound Four and Anko,kurenai would be playable More chars More Fun More Epic ^^

          • kuroitheblack

            I am not confusing at all xD i have to admit it was kind of an early info he released, so that could be the reason for his mistake. Anyway, trust me, there are many people who post here without being informed, and I am definetly not one of them ;D

          • Anonymous

            I’m still thinking and recover my hope only for one reason, CC2 said that they want to be faithful to the manga/anime story, and for that reason I don’t think that they are going to make again the same form that they use in Naruto Ultimate Ninja, if they promese be faithful, they are going to be a story like the anime/manga, with all fights as they are, the sound four agains the Shikamaru Platoon.
            I hope these.

          • http://twitter.com/Yeruqui Yeray Del Cristo

            The info is from yokito85 of Naruto viz forum. He is very sure of his info, and he explained it, and make sense lol

          • http://twitter.com/Yeruqui Yeray Del Cristo

            No, you are very confused, you can see all his post, I read all, and no one said that, you mistake, no problem man, we are humans!

            you are confused, you can read all his post, no one said that, no problem man, check your info before speak ;)

            i heard of him before. sometimes he is wrong and puts things he wishes for. i only trust saiyan island

          • http://twitter.com/Yeruqui Yeray Del Cristo

            what are you talking about man!, read all his post in Naruto Viz, he revealed info before sayain and before anywhere. You don’t know. STOP Blaming ppl. You are confusing him with other person that trolled us years years ago about Storm 2. But NO comparation with yokitos

          • kuroitheblack

            Yay, i’ve read it again too, seems i was confusing him with aother one xD
            Thanks for the hint, man ;D

          • Rafael Georgiou

            I hope for a new scan with information about new characters from war

            no problem man, the important here is we have those characters playable :D

            I don’t think characters from the war are making it into the game. Aside from Kyuubi cloak naruto.

          • Lucas Lemos

            I hope they put Real Madara, Rinnegan Tobi and Kabuto(War arc) as DLC

          • Tanner A

            they should do something like in ultimate tenkaichi where you can make your own ninja, chose a villlage, and then try to become like the hokage of that village.. that would be coooooooooooooool!

          • http://twitter.com/martijnwp martijn

            Shizune is not jet confirmed as support :P

            I’m with you with the pointless new combos, I mean, whats wrong with the old combos, plus, with canceling, you can mix up your combos, so quit it whith that you guys.

            Lets take a look back at the “A look at Past and Present characters” article.

            On Shippuden’s side: 35+ Sage Naruto+ Akatsuki Sasuke, CTS/Kirin Sasuke= 38
            On Part 1′s side: 37- Anko and Kurenai+ Kabuto(-possibly Sound 4)= 32/36

            Both: 32/36+38= 70/74

            Now for supports: Misukage’s bodyguards (2)+ Tsuchikage’s bodyguards (2)+ Raikage’s Bodyguards (2)+ Danzo’s bodyguards (2)+ Anko+ Kurenai(+possibly Sound 4)= 10/14

            So I either left out one or five playable characters or one or five support characters, or is yet to be confirmed, if I left someone out, please point that character out.

          • benjamin jenkins

            awww so no offline tournaments? that stinks >..< i wanted the game mostly because i though offline had tournaments, I guess not. Mark that as – worst expansion to the game so far.

          • Anonymous

            from what iv read anko kurenai and shizune are support only – well shizune is a special japan release only… so only japanese versions will have her playable…. i think the whole idea of having to versions of a character is dumb…. i rather have shippuden sakura n have all the extra character space to make the support characters playable…. i mean part one versions of characters is lame….. not sure if i will buy this or just wait for the final installment….

          • http://twitter.com/martijnwp martijn

            The japan/english version would be the same as characters right? I mean that was with storm 2 aswell

            He was already included on Shippuden’s side, unless there are two forms of Garra, which I don’t recall there being.

            All the characters should be playable, and support characters shouldn’t exist at all. It should be tag. Support characters are pointless. Its just another way to use jutsus. And now that they’re limiting the substitution, it’ll make countering that much more difficult against people that just click the support buttons all day waiting for a tag ultimate jutsu..
