Happy Friday Naruto fans! Some new information and screenshots for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations online mode have been revealed thanks to SI’s H3LLRav3n and Japanese website Famitsu!

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations will allow players to enjoy and compete in online play as part of Battle Rank, which is the traditional ranked fighting mode you know and love from Storm 2 and Ex Battle Rank, which lets players enjoy ranked battle and customize elements to offer a different style of play. You can learn more about these from a December 2011 post on Saiyan Island.

In addition to Battle Rank and Ex Battle Rank there is a new mode called Endless Battle. From our understanding, and we could be wrong, is that this an online mode that allows players to fight as many human opponents as possible. In other words, when you defeat an opponent, you are then pitted against another opponent until your health meter runs out. Again, if we understood correctly, it is a survival mode online, Naruto style! Information on offline survival mode can be found here.

Another online mode in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations is the tournament mode. This allows 8 players to get together online and compete for supremacy! From our understanding of Famitsu’s Japanese article, and we could be wrong, is that tournament mode will allow you to compete with friends and strangers!

Lastly, there is a new feature in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations that lets players save and share their replays online for free! About two days ago, CyberConnect2 tweeted that it is unlikely players will be able to upload their videos to YouTube directly from their PS3/360. Of course this can change, but from our understanding and experience with other games, players will be able to save replays to an online repository exclusive to Generations that will be accessible from the game itself.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations is a 3D fighter in works by CyberConnect2 for the Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360. It is scheduled to be published in Japan on February 23, 2012, North America on March 13, 2012, and March 30, 2012 in Europe.

    this looks promising.

    if you look at the last image gaara artwork has chaged

  • Rafael Georgiou

    The onlide mode improved so much and it is so exciting.Now im ready for cc2 to surprise us with scans about boss battles and secret characters.

  • Jmenyfield

    It’s not really a surprise when you already see it coming

    Looks like the chances of having 3 health bars is pretty much out of the question. I mean there’s still time to change, but the window for a finished game is generally 1 to 2 months so…

    Why would you say that? I seriously doubt its hard to add an option for more lifebars.

    Not to mention they could always update it after the game is released if they wanted to.

    If you look on narutos image of kyuubi chakra mode, he is in the form and it’s not an awakening

    wow best news yet thank you saiyan island you guys are the best of the best :)

    Well what do you know. I’m featured. :)

    I will say that CC2 has done a phenomenal job with this installment. The roster is healthy and the somewhat tedious battle system has gone through significant changes. Despite the absence of jutsu clashes and a playable Sound Four thus far, I will accept this game in its entirety. A “perfect” Storm 2 is better than no game at all till Storm 3.

  • Anonymous

    Well I assumed that’s what’s going to happen. I hope to atleast have 3 bars in vs mode and will keep having faith in it but with no info about it, I’m kind of disapoonted.

    well it’s not that big of a deal, the actual life is the same as in storm 1, just divided differently.

    I Know Right WTFudge? … Does That Mean We Can Be In Awakening At The Beginning Of A Battle Like In Storm1? O.o

    this looks good, hope they change the whole lag thing, as soon as you got to hero you either battled spammers or people with crappy internet

    That looks like Kankuro’s original shippuden outfit artwork on Gaara’s side in the last image.

    No mention of a spectator option? Weird, cause the official Namco Bandai site says you can watch matches in real time. I was assuming it would be in the tournament mode.

  • Varun Madhukara

    cool :)

  • Anonymous

    Just because people spam doesn’t mean they always win. There are ways to counter attack spammers. Each character has their weaknesses. You just have to exploit them.

    He is awakened because his supports can’t be used. It looks exactly like that in Storm 2 when you awaken. 

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

    Those spammers are EASY to beat. Seriously, go look at the records of people who spam Rasengan, Fireball, Deidara combos. They have more losses than wins. It’s the people who spam guard and/or jump guard the entire match that mostly have high win records, but the new features should hopefully fix that.

  • Anonymous

    will this be allowed for single player offline? also will there be an arena like in dragon ball z where you can knock them out of bounds that would be really cool?

    i’ll kill you with chiyo basama!

    online survival mode? Might become my prefrerred method of fighting.

    People would just camp near the edge, substitute, then knock you out of the ring. So no, it’s not in and it’s not a good idea.

  • Pirathees Rajaratnam

    i hope people disconect more then 3 times from online ranking will be banned ~.~ annoying everyone leave if he is going to loose

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

    It’s your right to disconnect, plus connections time out for many reasons that are not either players fault. I do hope that they give the person who disconnects a loss and the player who stays a win though.

  • Anonymous

    Ppl. Disconnect cause the openents just spams

  • Anonymous

    That’s a tough one. I don’t think players who spam unjustly deserve the win, nor do people who use lag switches so their attacks land and their opponents miss. If only these two types of people could be identified and avoided, but it sounds like an impossible dream.

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

    Spamming is not unjust, just annoying. You can’t deem something unjust because you or I don’t agree with it. Yes, they do deserve the win if you aren’t good enough to counter it especially since the records of pure spammers are usually terrible. 

    Yeah, it would be nice to be able to identify them. Lol, imagine a counter (like the DQ one) that gives you their most used attack. So if you see “Rasengan: 80%” you can just choose not to play them.

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

    Oops, didn’t mean to reply here.

    Foreal that’s why I just stay in player match

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

    The best ones are the players who have a record of like 500/0, camp and spam guard all game, then disconnect just before you’re about to beat them. I just LMAO.

    we get 3 health bars, which is a bonus

    Lol exactly ima beast player I dont use jitsu or support unless thier spamming in some way ,however when I see them spam I see how they spam n counter spam then (extremely good at it lol) so they always get pissed ,but there’s those few that are JUST TO BEAST AT SPAMING lol and u can’t do nunn about it no mater how good you are :(

    Hey Alex, looks like your comment may have been edited but I’m responding to your initial post.

    “Spamming is not unjust, just annoying. You can’t deem something unjust because you or I don’t agree with it. Yes, they do deserve the win if you aren’t good enough to counter it especially since the records of pure spammers are usually terrible.”

    It doesn’t sound like you and I are facing the same spammers. Are you dealing with Narutos/Minatos triple chakra shuriken spamming you while running away? You get close up and get jutsu’d/special’d. Or my other personal favorite, Sasori’s infinite tilt with triple shuriken spamming, with Itachi and Pain as support to keep you away. And people have the nerve to even lag-switch on top of this.

    And no I’m not talking about the pathetic rasengan beginners who mash it whenever they get the chance. Most of the time these people are the skilled, nearly maxed BP players. Unless you have a legitimate solution to beating these runaway shuriken cowards when you have 3x less shuriken support than they do, or you know how to stop a lag-switch, I will never agree with this being alright and giving them the win. I play the game because it’s fun, not to become cheaper than the cheapest.

    Endless battle isn’t survival, it’s non ranked matches in a lobby where you invite your friends and play over and over

  • Rafael Georgiou

    guys the story will go up to fight after the kage arc of sasuke and
    naruto not a little further? because we see naruto with new combos and
    an ultimate from the kyuubi fight

  • http://profiles.google.com/isidorembuma Isidore M’Buma

    Actually, no statement was made about a story mode… which is quite worrying. Let’s face it, NUNS’s gameplay is not solid enough to focus on online modes alone.

  • Rafael Georgiou

    i think its quite weird that we did no get almost any info about story mode i hope we get some

  • game master

    no dont do that cause just today or yesterday i was minato and i was playing online and i was moving him he did not move a step he just froze so i just disconnected so nothing like 3 maybe 6-10 times you are banned and for some time not like for ever say u disconnect 3 times 24hrs 6 times 72hrs and so on…

    they already stated the story will cover from the beginning of the naruto series all the way till the start of the 4th great ninja war..it also said we will be playing story mode through other characters prespectives beside naruto and cutscenes will be displayed in animation style..

    endless battle my ass..-___-. sounds exactly the same as player match with a friend and hitting the rematch button over an over

    One quick question for you guys: We KNOW THAT this game is mainly for Online gaming- I mean Multiplayer game. But does it contain good amount of Single-Player Campaign after all? In that case, I sincerely hope so!!!

  • Christian Jones

    Who says we get 3 health bars?

  • Anonymous

    If i was in that Tournament, i would be Kyuubi Chakra Awakening Naruto :D not the Original characters? Like Young Naruto, Young Sasuke and so on.. cause they must be a little weaker, i guess :S and in the tournament, pretty much DOUBT there will be Spammers :P the people i would like to be is: Naruto (Any) Sasuke (Kage Arc) Gaara (Kage Arc) Zabuza, Kisame, Itachi, Kid Kakashi, Obito,Minato,all the kages, and Asuma (Maybe) :3

  • Anonymous

    ROFL i spam Rasengan, but i only use it 2-4 times in a round now :/

  • Anonymous

    Naruto is my main Char. But in generations, it’s gonna be Sasuke (KAGE ARC) Im not gonna spam his awakening tho. But the MAIN ONE that i will always use (Sometimes) is Naruto Kyuubi chakra awakening, i wonder what his nin jutsu is :3, but i will still use asuma and gaara :d and stuff like that.
