YouTube user MyLifeIn5D was on hand at the 2012 Japan Expo to try out the Naruto Storm 3 demo! That’s the 3rd Hokage vs Kyuubi boss battle and Minato vs Masked Man story mode match you may have already seen and enjoyed.

Now, just to be clear, this demo is exclusive (at least at this time) to the 2012 Japan Expo event that is currently underway in Paris, France. If and when there is an announcement for a Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 demo for the PlayStation Network or Xbox Live, we’ll be sure to let you know right here on Saiyan Island!

For now, please enjoy the footage of the Japan Expo demo start to finish!

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is Namco Bandai Games and CyberConnect2′s fourth entry in the Storm series. It will be available for the Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 in Japan, North America, and Europe sometime Spring 2013. We hope to have more details as soon as they become available!

    boom

  • http://twitter.com/UchihaGon GoncaloCardoso

    wow.. so small : if the battles are getting this time , i hope we have more boss battles than in storm 2

  • positiveemotions

    wow that was freaking great man

  • NARUTOxANKO

    why use no one chakra cancel dash ??

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000279720730 Alex Harris-Wilson

    I bet this game won’t cover the entire war arc,they will probably make a storm 4.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001567307279 James Isaac

    If your right then Id rather get Storm 4. But u cant assume that for real becuz they just started to make this game and spring is so far away umad?

  • http://www.facebook.com/alex.marrero.315 Alex Marrero

    That’s about the same length as most boss battles in storm 2.

  • DivineKingdom

    Has anyone else noticed how much damage from attacks have been reduced (especially the jutsu as shown in the 4th’s hokages fight), this may be in response of some people wanting more health bars (reducing damage is essentially giving the same outcome)

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001567307279 James Isaac

    Yeah I dont mind that. They should make it that a way. :3

  • positiveemotions

    maybe he didnt want to

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KMVC2AHUM6A6GYY2VMIFBFBGIU SuperdeadlyKing

    yeah agreed now lets see what the jutsu spammers will do now probably run away if they can

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000279720730 Alex Harris-Wilson

    Naruto shippuuden is on it’s final arc,that means this game will probably contain everything from the 5 kage summit arc till the end of the Anime/manga……Would be quiet lot to put in one game don’t u think ?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000279720730 Alex Harris-Wilson

    And they will have to wait until the Anime ends because they won’t be allowed to spoil anything,and until the anime ends it’s still a long way.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/thegamecraze Mister Kring

    This game will most likely cover from the time Sasuke tried to capture Killer Bee to the beginning of the Forth Shinobi War Arc as they are remaking the battle between Minato and the Masked Man (Called that in Generations) in Storm 3 I see this more likely as to make up for Generations story mode, but it would go further than Generations of course. Also put in the factor that they are limited to where the anime is in the story not the manga and the Naruto anime will still be ongoing Spring 2013. I don’t think the manga will end until Late 2013 – Early 2014 anyway. But this is all speculation and assumptions. Don’t take it as fact but mearly ones opinion as a part of a developing team.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000279720730 Alex Harris-Wilson

    It might be only that way cuz it’s a boss battle,who knows :$

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KNYB7WF2WNTRUM2KZSGZK2IJDM Graham

    hopefully along with reduced damage they increase the length of each battle.  I don’t want fights to end without a K.O. -__-

  • HDAnimeCentral X

    Im pretty sure it has to do with it being a boss fight!

  • *Super~Sayian*

    demo was ok, reminds me of the gameplay where dante faced off against evil santcus.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/WKJTLSR4P6LSSDDWLMP4JDV5RE Mustafa

    please please please please make it 4 player

  • Kevin Garcia

    it would problally be until the kages say win to naruto

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_U7MU5OUS7FIH575VT4PNZNIDXU jermar

    what really, i think generations doesn’t even compare to this, it was just 3 boring ordinary fights with little clip scans that told the story, i know everyone has there own opinion and all, i just can see how you think generations demo was better. anyway isn’t weird they released the demo so early i mean this time last year there was generations gameplay but definitely no demo (they called it a demo but it wasn’t a real demo it was just gameplay)

  • Kevin Garcia

    im whit just by one thing fillers there will be a filler arc of kakashi against the seven sords man its six because he already defeated zabza but it starts in august so i personly the only end i would like it has to be when the kage say win to naruto or when naruto turn bijuu and it ends naruto saying i have learn a lot of name and we see sasuke at the end whit his ems thats because those are the character i want tobiwhit rinegan edo madara/whit out the perfect susanoo so that in storm 4 they put edotensei releas madara whit perfect susanoo naruto bijuu and sasuke i believe this ems will be like uns2 that his awekening was crap so they made another whith the same eye but his awekening was op this is what i am expecting of uns3 if there is a uns4 if not i want it alll the jubii the filler character even put whiterapist the awekening they unite and turn into a giant flower im asuming all boss batlle of the fourth shinobi war a zetsu will ramdomly attack like in the anime

  • daewoo94

    I feel that the new characters that could/should be included as playable are… Darui, Dosu, Sound 4, Kinkaku/Ginkaku, Mifune, Hanzo, Madara, Tobi (War arc), Nagato, Kitsuchi, zetsu, fourth kazekage, third raikage, second mizukage, second tsuchikage, kurenai, and all the jinchuriki. if they all were in that would be epic

  • Drunken Sagemode Nagato Uzimak

    they cant run away forever if they give infinite time online, put cool down on jutsu, and make anyone who rage quites go back a rank. (Not to harsh a punish ment) I think

  • ALMIGHTY Juicemon E. Genesis

    Al sound awsome (especially NAGATO!!!!!) except Dosu and Kitsuchi.  Not that I dislike them (well, Dosu is a d*ck), but I cant see them having a moveset.  And as for zetsu, I only se BLACK zetsu being playable, unles they make WHITE zetsu like charade (from soulcalibur 2) and have him take on a completely random moveset, ninjutsu, and ultimate of one of the many characters in the game in order to compliment his shapeshifting and chakra copying abilities.  Now THAT would be cool!

  • Mark Rose

    So is thus game a reboot of Storm 1 and 2?

  • daewoo94

    the only reason I say Dosu is that there was some talk about putting him in Generations from the makers of the game. It seemed like it was a possibility. For Zetsu…idk to be honest. But i think it’s high time he got included. And I believe that Kitsuchi has enough moves in the manga. It’s not hard to make a move set either, just a lot of earth style. After all he is the leader of the second division. 

  • *Super~Sayian*

    eh depends on how you look at it, but anyways I hope this isn’t the offical demo, but just the early stages, like when they were showing constant scenes between sasuke vs raikage. but the reason I think the last demo was better, simply cause it had new characters or new movesets so it felt fresh, especially on the two new maps. but this one, only the kyuubi fight seems new, the minato vs masked man isn’t really that special, hopefully like the other guy said, its just early development, so they’ll still might consider changing minato’s moveset. gawd I hope!

  • ALMIGHTY Juicemon E. Genesis

    I agree with your selections 100%, plus a few extras of my own.  I was just seeing dificulty in a moveset for Kitsuchi, Dosu, and WHITE Zetsu.  If its the WHOLE Zetsu (as in both of BLACK & WHITE conjoined), then i’m plum out of ideas.

  • narutobleachop

    no its a sequel. the stuff in this game was not in storm 1 or 2

  • Tyreke Bradshaw

    Maybe a survival mode where, you fight zetsu clones, or, ninja summoned by the edo tensei.

  • Mark Rose

    Then why is 3rd Hokage there?

  • Tobi

    -_- why wouldn’t he?

    If you read the news that they posted months ago you could have know that this will have Begening of Naruto, Part 1, and Part 2 in it -_-

  • Tobi

    They usually put characters that have been shown in the Anime so they (Gin & Kin) will be there the only thing i’m worried about is Ginkaku’s awakening :( also lets hope that Nagato, Edo Itachi, and company get in the anime before the game is released ^^

  • ramonwashington44

    naruto ninja storm generations ended where the manga ended i dont think it has to do with the anime and the manga will probably end sometime this year if not early next year in reply to Mister Kring

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001697196154 Tierenni Younger

    your right CC2 said the support only characters are playable in Storm 4 (3)

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001697196154 Tierenni Younger

    This game would be 100% more awesome if there was no online play  

  • ramonwashington44

    ?

  • http://www.facebook.com/alex.marrero.315 Alex Marrero

    I’m not happy with 10-15 hours of gameplay against an AI that couldn’t win a pong game, sry.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ryan-Blaziken/100000957438690 Ryan Blaziken

    cant wait it looks awesome, good bye gene, you have been replaced xD

  • JENEVEUXPAS

    That would be freakin’ awesome!

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8wQURL-xG4&feature=related Kira

     NO ONLINE PLAY yeah right

  • gamerazor247

    they did it….they added quick time events to non boss battles, :’D it’s been my dream sense Generations XD

  • JENEVEUXPAS

    I wonder if CC2 will add on to the playable character roster from Generations. Do you all think that they will keep the pre-time skip (before Shippuden) characters in Storm 3′s roster? Also, where do you guy believe Storm 3′s story mode will really begin? I’ve read it will start where Storm 2 left off, but I just wanted to ask. LOL!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_I26T5S34AY4UDT7IJF6HWYS3CE Anthony

    Why are there “S”‘s between the substitution bars? S for Substitute? lol

  • http://twitter.com/BKnockamp AmpBknocka

     Then why not invite your friends over

  • http://twitter.com/BKnockamp AmpBknocka

     Thank you I totally agree, if you want to play with someone then call one of your friends over and play. And if he is spamming then knock his or her controller off and beat the hell out of theyre character

  • Foolywolf

     what do u mean all of what was in that video was a boss battles.

  • Sageof SixPath

    LOL he don’t have friends.:D

  • Hagareno

    Eh. Looks decent but these developers don’t understand how to pace and leave excitement in the story. Obviously they have to abridge some stuff…but atleast leave in the masked man losing his arm ect… These guys need to realize that just because most players are well acquainted with naruto, they can still do a job that surpasses the anime. The animations and graphics are the best I think any manga adapted game is going to get this gen; they can really blow people’s minds with this story if they do a thorough job, and not just a job that reminds people who watched the anime/read the manga of the gist of what happened. 

    They got close with Storm 2, but they were just way too inconsistent; the sasuke and itachi story was done amazingly well, while the Team 10 arc was horribly neglected. I just hope just hope Cyberconnect can prove they aren’t just some company making bank off of a popular series. 

  • Damian Pawłowski

    this is the same as generations but include boss battle and maybe better graphic, but the fighting system is the same v.v god damn it, I was thinking that the Storm 3 will be something difference.

  • naruto_fan_desia

    I dont think there is alot of time for them to make it 4 players since its getting released in the spring but lets hope that it will be in storm 4 :P

  • naruto_fan_desia

    Dude this is the first glimpses we get from storm 3 i feel that there are alot more things they’ll get to reveal like in Gen the first demo didn’t have a sub bar but they added one in later in  the scans 

  • Sandrie Manzano

    Same as generations and ninja storm 2 just with the progression of the story. Just the same

  • NSOP

     Animations are good but not the best I’ve seen, but in terms of graphics OP: Pirate Warriors easily wins, the Storm series don’t even have actual textures, just flat low resolution single color palette swaps.

    I am glad they added boss battles back, don’t mind the sub bar much since it actually makes people use the circle button as opposed to just spamming jutsus.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001076542110 Francisco Neves

    Hell no we need online but atleast they could make like max paine 3, cheaters would go to a separate lobby and on storm so could spammers

  • Osama AL-Sultan

    to those how think the game didn’t add anything on the gameplay. remember when we saw Generations at the first time? it was storm 2 with sasuke and raikage, that’s only! and the game show us some changes at the gameplay later, so don’t think that storm 3 has show us all the changes. i’m pretty sure there is some different on the gameplay and i hope it ‘ll be useful

  • DivineKingdom

    I don’t know, perhaps its a matter of personal taste but I thought these graphics were better. Storm has the perfect blend of 3D with loyal anime visuals which looks so smooth and fluid in motion. Pirate warriors seemed to suffer in this regard with the quick movement visuals looking clunky, plus its moved too far into the realm of 3D and shown by the fact that so many things look like they are made of leather when they are not. I think Storm got the balance perfect with the textures etc, so everything looks textured appropriately, but PW seem too much like rubber dolls (close but not as bad as one of.the raging blast games), and only seems to be ‘anime’ because we know what the characters already look like and what series they are from, not from the sheer graphical elements or design

  • Ignas

    Have some fucking patience,you brat…We will see changes later.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KNYB7WF2WNTRUM2KZSGZK2IJDM Graham

    Why people have to come and say that it’s the same game but with little modifications? Seriously, the game will only be released on 2013! That’s a lot of time for a lot of changes! So, calm down and wait!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000279720730 Alex Harris-Wilson

    Do you watch Sawyer7mages reviews ???? (Youtube)

  • http://www.facebook.com/alex.marrero.315 Alex Marrero

    Not friends who care or are even remotely on my level, no. And besides, I want to show the whole community how good I am.

    That was the dumbest statement I’ve ever heard. So many factors to consider. Insults these days are piss poor, mindless pieces of crap.

    Here’s an insult: You’re too afraid to play online because your ego won’t allow for you to believe you suck at the game. You’re a coward, a child in body or at least in mind, and you gather pleasure from stupid comments like these. Be relevant, because society probably gave up on you a long time ago. So go cry about how no one loves you, or cares for you, and leave the ones who aren’t afraid to step out of the realm of their rooms and serf the internet for a good challenge alone.

  • http://twitter.com/UchihaGon GoncaloCardoso

    i’m still pretty sure this will not cover the war arc

  • http://www.facebook.com/alex.marrero.315 Alex Marrero

    The move that Minato does with the over the top rasengan while awakened is indeed a new mechanic. It seems awakening will now have a kind of “signature” attack on R1/L1 to replace supports. As interesting as that is, so far I’m not impressed.

  • http://www.facebook.com/alex.marrero.315 Alex Marrero

    It will, but not in it’s entirety. The games have always been parallel with the anime, and the war has already started there. It just won’t be near it’s end by Storm 3′s release (meaning later additions like Bijuu Naruto and Sage Kabuto are unlikely).

  • http://www.facebook.com/paul.cano1 Paul Cano

    It’s coming out on 2013. The war arc will be over by then.

  • http://twitter.com/UchihaGon GoncaloCardoso

    yeah.. thats why i dont see war arc on the game . people have too much expectactive on this game and they want madara so badly… but theres no way we will see him until then in the anime.. only if they make double episodes and no fillers 

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003267693629 Hazrul Haizal Jasmi

    I’m going to buy this games.This games is ROCK!!!!!!

  • girls rule

    i saw this before saiyan island! hell yeah!

  • Reapersharkracer

    Beast!!

  • DivineKingdom

    I thought it was a boss quick time event, like if both yourself and itachi throw shuriken at each other during the boss battle (although it does look nice, dramatic and well designed, and even though its as long if not longer than the old longer dramatic ultimates, it doesn’t break the flow of combat). Tbh one or two did in storm 1, but the poor design of ultimates in storm 2, despite being shorter, did break the flow and at times just seemed awkward. They seemed to improve this with superior ultimate designs in generations. So long as they are like storm 1 (with the command sequence which justified the longer time given you had an active role), or as short as the current ones but with the quality of storm 1 ultimates (e.g killer bee’s new ultimate, the 1st and 2nd hokage, the storm 1 characters ultimates etc )

  • sonic4ever567

    Maybe you can set witch jutsu you want? So we have more jutsu per character!!!

  • sonic4ever567

    They are at ginkaku and kinkaku of course they will get full Kcm naruto and ds kabuto… And even if they don’t Finnish it…they will have to add dlc to finnish it. I mean where did you guys think storm 3 would end? Storm 4 would be short as hell…

  • daewoo94

    I also think that awakenings need a major change. There should be some new ones like, Orochimaru’s eight headed serpent jutsu, Choji’s butterfly wings (both young and old), Half shukaku young gaara, and curse mark second state jugo. Those are just a few. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/alex.marrero.315 Alex Marrero

    There is a quicktime for the boss battle, but that’s not what I’m referring to here. It’s at 4:53, he throws his kunai and if it connects instant teleports and rasengan above the opponent.

  • SuperFastTortoise

    So, What Happens If You Use Minato And That Move When You Aren’t Fighting Tobi Or Masked Man? Does It Just Go Through Their Brain And You Get An Instant K.O? O.o 

  • Kamishuriken

    At 4:41 you
    can see that Minato can power up if you press R3 and move it in all directions
    and then press L1 and R1! I hope that’s not just for the boss-battle!

  • DivineKingdom

    During the intermission where it shows you the controls I see what you’re talking about, but I didn’t actually see the person try it in the video, all I saw were a bunch of rasengan combos and two ultimates

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_U7MU5OUS7FIH575VT4PNZNIDXU jermar

    it probably isn’t, its way to early

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_U7MU5OUS7FIH575VT4PNZNIDXU jermar

    you know minato’s grab, how he throws kunai then disappear behind opponent then cuts them, well i think they should change to instead of cutting him doing the rasengan as shown above, that would be pretty cool to me at least

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_U7MU5OUS7FIH575VT4PNZNIDXU jermar

    i totally agree, choji’s (young) butterfly, gaara (young) shukaku, and second state jugo should have been obvious for generations, hopefully they were just saving it for storm 3, if this is going to be their last game, i highly suggest they take heed to their fans opinions

  • http://www.facebook.com/alex.marrero.315 Alex Marrero

    It can only be done in awakening mode. It probably will be preset for each character.

  • SuperFastTortoise

    I Guess It Would Look Cool … Actually You Know What, Yeah They Should Throw That In There! We Should At Least Get Something New With Minato, Right? ;)

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001101551285 Nick Kurdadze

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAh! there’s the cursed substitution bar again. only one request of mine would be to CC2 to remove the bar or keep it but make the substitutions exactly like storm 1 and 2. That thing is a spamma’s paradise

  • koaddo

    let me explain. If you press L1/R1 while your character is awakened they do a special jutsu. This attack was not shown in the video, it was just a QTE that is activated when Minato and tobi both use chakra dash.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002998062897 Abdi Hassan

    am i the only one that only wants this to be shippuden

  • beaunard declasse

    im with you!

  • dubaloseven

    No, it keeps people from mashing the triggers with almost no gauge to dodge a perfectly timed attack. It also makes combos actually useful as oppose to Storm 2 where you couldn’t land 2 hits without an instant substitution. I wouldn’t mind a the chakra bar being split into eight bars though (one to substitute, two for jutsu, six for ultimate jutsu).

  • beaunard declasse

    lol sub spammer…. yay for sub bar!!! :D

  • dubaloseven

    I’m sure we’ll get new combos and grabs and stuff this game has been in development since a bit after completion of Asura’s Wrath.    Remember how Zabuza had all the same moves as Suigetsu in the Generations in the gameplay trailers of Generations but he had all different moves (except a bigger, crappier water dragon) in the final product. Unfortunately Zabuza is garbage in Generations. Suigetsu, however has an amazing ability to punish people who run out of sub bar (his canceled combo is unbelievable i got a solid 40% damage combo online).

  • dubaloseven

    And perhaps the Susano’o won’t be total garbage like in Generations. Also Partial Curse Mark for CTS Sasuke

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001101551285 Nick Kurdadze

    that’s what i’m saying, keep the sub bar, or make a bar that limits substitutions, so people will have to plan them out, but make subsittutions like storm 1 and 2 so they will be a little harder to pull off and it won’t turn into a “who runs out of subs first” battle because, in generations, you could sub out of ANYTHING. no matter how good the opponent is, if you have a sub bar, you’re safe and that’s not cool.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001101551285 Nick Kurdadze

    and i’m not saying i spam subs. ii had a LOt more people sub spamming in generations just because it was 10 x easier to spam. that’s what pisses me off. it’s too easy to substitute.  a casual battle in Generations: nobody does a thing. one finally decides to act. other one dodges or subs, counter, sub counter, sub counter, until one runs out of subs then it’s combox2, triangle-x, combox2 etc… until chakra runs out. even though i have only four losses online in Generations,, out of 37 i played (couldn’t take more), i hated all those battles.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001101551285 Nick Kurdadze

    Amen to that. from the end of Pain saga, all the way to end of naruto. or at least end of 4th shinobi war. so we can have chars like, kyuubi chakra mode naruto (real thing with all the jutsus not the cash in, generations one), kyuubi chakra mode naruto-version 2 as a regular char and it’s awakening-bijuu mode naruto. Edo itachi with yasaka magatama, izanami etc… nagato, edo madara (perfect susanoo as awakening)meteor as ultimate, tobi 6 paths, “sage” kabuto, ems sasuke, 3rd raikage, tsunade with a good awakening i hope like jinton, possibilities are nearly endless. :)

  • http://twitter.com/BKnockamp AmpBknocka

     @facebook-100001286123697:disqus Where was the insult in my comment and if no one love me WTF, are you some kind of dumb troll. I was not insulting you but if me saying why don’t you invite your friends was insulting that you clearly don’t have any then I’m sorry.

    Also I didn’t as for your “oh I have people who love me “B.S clearly you most likely are trying to say that you either can’t have people around you cause if you lose you will go off.

    And another thing I don’t like online because when ever I try to play with someone their connection sucks, or they leave because they where losing. and sometimes the connection freezes.

    And if you want to tell me more about your life don’t cause no one cares

  • http://twitter.com/BKnockamp AmpBknocka

       @yahoo-KNYB7WF2WNTRUM2KZSGZK2IJDM:disqus I don’t really like it because everyone connection is either sucky or they get mad and turn off their games. That’s way

  • konanNtobi

    I agree I wouldn’t be mad if they took part 1 charcters out, I’m not that fond of them except naruto annd temari.

    I really hope they putt the SEcond Mizukage in the game and hve Gaaras dad for support because he had a small part

  • konanNtobi

    The sub bar should definetly stay , Ns2 subs were spamable and couldn’t get out of wht you wnted when you needed it to. And you could never get a full combo off, except that one combo with every character that always worked. There should defintely be a sub recharge button so peopple have too choose between subs and chakra(jutsu,dashing,shuriken,ougis,etc.

  • http://twitter.com/BKnockamp AmpBknocka

     Had to hit that like button on this the only thing you are missing is Naruto going from initial -4 and Nagato going from max to six arms

  • nicholas palmer

    so would u rather play a 5-10 hr game and be bored with it in 2 months or play a better storyline game and be bored with it more than a couple months later

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1492042103 Manuel Miguel Cordova

    i think the sub bar is spammers real weakness because they often have many openings,so when u get them to wast the sub bar and u know there openings,you can easily defeat them,objections?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001101551285 Nick Kurdadze

    Honestly? that game was generations for me.story mode didn’t take much longer thatn 4 hours. Then i tested out all chars. beat challenges. played couple matches online (37 to be exact) and just quit. Storm 1, it took me around 30 hours i think to complete story mode with every bonus and S rank on all missions and it was SOOOO much fun. Storm 2 story mode, meh, boss battles were nice, other than that, too linear and boring but it still took pretty long. and once again, honestly, my friends and i put twice as much time in Storm than Storm 2 and Generations combined, even though it had almost two times less chars than storm 2. 1 and 2 were awesome still, i had some minor problems with 1 and i had some problems with 2. It was Generations that felt like a cash grab to me so i hope 3 will not go down the same path :)

    to KonanNtobi    . i am agreeeing with you. i am saying sub BAR should stay so there are limited substitutions but the difficulty of the substitution should be notched up to Storm 1/2. ok. trying to make you see. picture a scenario. you are playing someone. both of you have about one ultimate’s worth a life. you’ve been at it and both have 1 sub bar left. all of a sudden, he dashes at you. it’s good, you saw this. through careful planning, you make him use his supports, you use yours, pull off amazing support or combo, exhaust your sub bar, and while he’s air bound, knocked back, you time ultimate PERFECTLY, but since a 2 year old blind kid with no thumbs can use substitution in Generations, this bozo subs out, midair. all your trouble wasted and finishes you off from behind. point being, subbing shouldn’t be that easy.

    This particular thing would not have happened in Storm 1 or two or at least it would’ve taken SERIOUS timing skills to get out of that one, while in generations, you just press L2 and that’s it. Safe to hit homerun.

    i seem to just get random likes.

  • konanNtobi

    Yes I do understand what you are saying, my point is that without a limit to subs the matches become annoying and jutsu based, but the your scenario has made me realize that I do prefer the setup from storm 2 better so you can preform. Powerful combos like that, but if they don’t add the extra health bars that you could apply by going to game options , I would preferr the setup for generation ecausee preforming a team attack then ultimate wass to easy on storm 2

    I will say that I would prefer the sub bars over the setup from storm 2 but I will be happy either way with this release of the new game, butas you can see the sub bars are already. Part of the game and with CC2 there is no way they will be changing there minds so the rest of you will have to cope and addapt to the new system or not buy the game , which you will any way regardless of what they do to the game because you simply love naruto.

  • nicholas palmer

    yea atleast for this new game if it include mission mode they should make it similar to the original ultimate ninjas but unique for storm and the game in my theory should be atleast 45-50 hours till its fully complete story equal about 30 hrs and everything eles sholud be within 15-20 

    CC2 MAKE ME SIT ON MY ASS TILL MY CHILDREN GO TO COLLEGE AND IM 16 LOL

    teams 7 , 10 , 2 and 8 (the 12 friends hinata neji ino etc..) all new combos and jutsus and ultimates and the war costume along side there  usual looks

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002998062897 Abdi Hassan

    To those of you worried about them recycling old movesets again for storm 3, i honestly cant see this happening for the majority of the characters. The only characters i see this happening for are, Minato,Tobi ( with orange mask),Jiraiya,Temari,Yamato,Hidan,Chiyo,Pain (not Nagato) and maybe Konan. This is all just my OPINION and thought i would share it and see what you guys thought.

  • konanNtobi

    Idont feel they need new combos but they should get new jutsu, and ougi and interchangeble grabs

  • konanNtobi

    So are you saying these characters are th ones who will not get a new moveset? Because if you are your an ediot for thinking konan will get recycled. She might not get a new moveset but jutsu ,ougi and transformations is a must, and this outburst isn’t pointed towards you its just that konan is. My favorrite character and I won’t except any neglect whwen it comes to her.

  • http://twitter.com/_Moses_G CC2 Fan

     If we get old move sets recicled again it will be the 3º game that we get old stuff from previous games, and when we buy new games we want new stuff. For Old move sets we already have Storm2 and Generations. I/We Want new Things!XD

  • http://twitter.com/_Moses_G CC2 Fan

    I agree with you. Storm3 is a new game, so he new things, and move sets as well. For Old Stuff we already have Generations and Storm 2. It is imperative to have new move sets for all characters, or at least the charactares present on Story Mode!

  • yuckfoupayme

    Are you retarded? You call him an “ediot” (ironically) and then tell him that your frustration isn’t pointed towards him? He was expressing his thoughts on what he thinks cc2 is going to do and I agree with him. If cc2 doesnt change her moveset who really gives a flying shit the end result is the same once your done smashing the single attack button.

  • http://twitter.com/_Moses_G CC2 Fan

     It its imperative to have new combos, and if not, what is the meaning of a New game?:S I they do not create new combos it will be the 3º Game to have the same combos Recicled, the 3º GAME!

  • Drunken Sagemode Nagato Uzimak

    they better not recycle pain’s move set that was beyond bad nothing about that move set made sense and not in a good way. Ninja hero’s three’s pain move set was better and it was universally panned as the worst

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002998062897 Abdi Hassan

    Maybe i should explain my reasoning, again this is my OPINION you don’t have to agree or like it. I do not believe all those characters i pointed out will receive any significant changes to their movesets because there is not much you can do to expand on them, they have not shown anything new since the period in which storm 2 takes place and i don’t think CC2 will waste resources and time on a few characters. I am not sure about Konan because she does have a little showdown with Tobi but i honestly think CC2 will neglect that fight and not put much effort into it. 

  • Drunken Sagemode Nagato Uzimak

    I all I want is Nagato with gedo mazo awakening. Anyone else want a boss fight with hanzo or at least a fight with him in the story I noticed they games usually skip over that battle.

  • konanNtobi

    I know wht I called him bbut i Ididnt didn’tfell like editing my post :p, and I don’t like the way your attacking me.

  • http://twitter.com/_Moses_G CC2 Fan

     Sorry, i mean the “third” 3rd! LOOL I will edit those Post:P I was thiking in my native Language! Sorry

    If they recicle the move sets on Storm 3 it will be the 3rd Time that they do it! And it will be very desappointing!

  • ntlg504

    they should make a new move set for pain because he only gets the 6 paths in each combo so he dose not really have his own moves that my opinion and also for tobi we have seen him silly for 2 games now and in the naruto epesiods he is not silly alot anymore 

  • DivineKingdom

    I’m no grammar Nazi but mother of god I think you just sexually assaulted the english language :s ow and its hardly ‘attacking’, everyone has the right to voice their opinion so long as it isn’t simply to negatively affect another, and I’m pretty sure even greater evidence for that is how silly it looks when one person calls another an ‘idiot’…whilst spelling it incorrectly.

  • naruto_fan_desia

    they didn’t make different ninjutsu in gen u expect them to make different combos for every character

    When i remember storm 1 i wanna cry T.T it was soo much fun and i actually played the game b4 watching the anime the game what drove me to c naruto

    They need to give the awakened characters ultimate’s again.

  • bilawaluchiha786

    did the demo came out today

     No its just for the japan expo.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KNYB7WF2WNTRUM2KZSGZK2IJDM Graham

    What makes you think the younger characters are going to be in this game? I doubt they will.

  • http://twitter.com/_Moses_G CC2 Fan

     Not for everyone, at least for those present’s on story mode! But they need to change the combos. I don’t want a Storm game with almost the same “Copy Paste Characters” of previous games! It will give us the sensation that is the same game(Storm 2/Generations) but only with a diferen’t story mode! If That happen it will be(for me) a huge disapointment, it will be like, Storm2=Generation=Storm3? I don’t want that:/

  • daewoo94

    Well for starters they’ve already been in the game. To take them out would make a lot of fans mad and since this may be one of there last games, that would definitely not be a smart move. Also, it’s already been said in the early description of the game that the character roster will be the largest of all Naruto games. This could not be achieved without the younger characters in the game. Therefore, it’s already practically been confirmed. What makes you think they won’t be?

  • http://www.facebook.com/alex.marrero.315 Alex Marrero

    They gave them signature moves instead, activated by using the buttons normally set for supports. This is fine with me, but let’s face it, one new attack with the same old moveset will get old fast.

  • bilawaluchiha786

    no i mean the japan demo. i create a japan account and then i checked naruto shipudden ultimate ninja storm 3 demo right now and i didn’t saw 
    it 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KNYB7WF2WNTRUM2KZSGZK2IJDM Graham

    The fact that this game only covers from around the 5 Kage summit to the end of the war. It’s not like this game is Generations 2, It’s storm 3.  Therefore I think they will be taking out all the young characters and replacing them with war arc characters (which I would prefer).

  • daewoo94

    What you don’t get however is the fact that they simply won’t take out characters. The story covers around the 5 kate summit to the end of the war yes, but the story mode isn’t the only mode in the game. Obviously. So, since there is online mode and versus mode, a depletion in the roster will not happen. They will definitely add war arc characters though. But they won’t replace the old characters. Your preference will not happen buddy. Sorry.

  • konanNtobi

    @DivineKingdom I’m sorry but I know that you understood every word I was typing no matter the spelling ,and yes you are right everyone can voice their opinion. And I said nothing about him not being able too.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002998062897 Abdi Hassan

    The only things i care about are Jutsu customization (at least 3 Jutsus per character) not including the ultimate which need to be more epic, the most characters in any Naruto game not including part 1 characters, the free roam from storm 1 and story detail like storm 2 and this might be weird but Narutos house from the PS2 Naruto games haha.

  • konanNtobi

    I think they only need two jutsu and I think ougis are fine.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001250827926 Marvin Ellerbe

    they should bring back wall fighting, jutsuclashing, and being able to pick someone in their awakening form

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001250827926 Marvin Ellerbe

    im really excited for this game! i hope they put more playable characters

  • http://www.facebook.com/Wrongfire Andreas M Mihalakeas

    No changes in game play whatsoever from what I can see… If they don’t start upping the Ante then the Storm series will just become another franchise spam.

    Why not open up the combat arena’s more? Or hell, find out a way to incorporate freeroaming into the combat? (Toggling Lock on, Toggling combat/exploration controls) Where’s wall running? They should attempt to make the best Naruto game they can, but instead they are sticking to the same formula over and over again. :/

    New characters only does so much, and the graphics are barely updating.

  • dark_flame360

    No, that demo is exclusive for expo

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Felix-Thörl/100000502117437 Felix Thörl

    You still have to wait, CC2′s expo-demos are rarely close to what the actual game is going to offer. When I played Generations on Gamescom last year there was no sub-bar and different combos and jutsu, I don’t say they will change everything but the demo will surely evolve over time.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Felix-Thörl/100000502117437 Felix Thörl

    The new ougis are cool, but they didn’t update the old ones. Most pre-ts characters in generation have much more epic ultimates than their older counterparts, that dissapointed me!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001750334041 Nikhil Kalia

     yhh his air combo sucks and you cant chain combos unless you chakra cancel. atleast they could of put bansho ten’in as the tilt to either chain or start combos. Plus when he awakens maybe instead of one pain used in each combo, they could use 2 or three (like naruto does with his shadow clones) including a few of the 5 elements. Pain a huge potential when it comes to combos so hopefully cc2 realise

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001750334041 Nikhil Kalia

     neji, kakashi, guy will prob get new jutsus cuz in the anime neji made a zetsu fly back with force even though the zetsu was on his back. as for kakashi he used lightening chain and guy some move which the name i forgot. so my guess would hopefully be that characters will have new jutsus, movesets. they’ll probs be in their diff awakenings

    thank you. example of this is Zabuza. compare generations Gamescom demo to final product.

  • greedybastard

    @Andreas M Mihalakeas,
    I cannot agree with you more. They created such a beautiful Naruto expierience with Storm 1 and 2 – free roam 3D Konoha and huge boss battles with fantastic quck-time cutscenes..I haven’t played Generations, but if I’m not mistaken then it did lack those huge boss battles and of course there was no 3D village like in the 1th game…one of the biggest dissapointments is the removal of those cinematic ultimate jutsus that kinda atleast for me defined Ultimte Nija series. Why won’t they improve the game? That is a mystery to me. Why not add a stage damage after a character does an ultimate jutsu and wall running with those awesome jutsu clashes?

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/OR6DNE4EM2BI334Y3OIDTBK6YE Dante Graham

    Why don’t y’all just make storm 3 3D compatible?
     

  • Gohan

    If you don’t want it then wait until they release a game that goes to your expectations. You don’t have to type bothersome comments, do you think they will come here and waste there time for just one comment. For me character roster is the only thing that is important

  • Gohan

    Storm 1 and 2 had glitches and had several problems with it. They have done all they can with the game. Boss battles are in, awakenings can happen anytime, ring outs are in, more combat arenas are in, I could careless for roaming and they still haven’t revealed more. Graphics are top notch and don’t need to be changed. Jutsu clashes are not happening, quit complaining about it. Apart from that the game is still full of surprises

  • Gohan

    Isn’t it already 3D compatible?
