Naruto Storm 3: Hiroshi Matsuyama Interview

Posted by Natalie Robinson
Tags: Information, Naruto, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360,

At the 2012 Japan Expo, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 (Naruto Storm 3) was on display as a playable demo for fans to enjoy. On hand to represent Naruto Storm 3 was the president of developer CyberConnect2, Hiroshi Matsuyama! The team at GaaraFrance had the opportunity to interview Matsuyama-sam in regards to the game so that they could provide answers to some of the questions us fans had! The interview is in French, so Saiyan Island will do our best work to extract the key information for you in question and answer format:

Where does the Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 story begin?
It begins with a flashback, the Nine Tails Invasion arc, which is what the Japan Expo demo contained. Afterwards, the story will mainly focus on events after the meeting of the Kage.

Will Naruto Storm 3 will focus on the Fourth Shinobi World War?
Yes, that will be the focus of story mode.

Does that mean the story will go up until the appearance of Madara?
Matsuyama, who was laughing and shaking his head at the question, mentions that the end is not really defined yet. The information will be revealed eventually, and there will be a few surprises that will be revealed before the game’s release.

Gaara France notes that they asked Matsuyama-san about Kabuto (Snake Form) and Masked Man for Naruto Generations and were met with the same response, so there is hope for Madara!

How long is story mode and how many boss battles will it contain?
The style will be similar to Naruto Storm 2. Story mode will have several boss battles. It’s too early to estimate the playing time at this moment, but CyberConnect2 has put in a lot of effort into it, especially the visual aspect.

In Naruto Generations, a substitution jutsu bar system was implemented. Will that be returning?
Players have given a lot of feedback in regards to this and CyberConnect2 is considering their opinions as development progresses, but the substitution bar system will be in.

Can players awaken from the start of a match in Naruto Storm 3?
Yes, a good example is from the Japan Expo demo where Minato awakens early in the battle against Masked Man. That is a story mode match, but in normal battles, players will also be able to awaken from the beginning of the match. It will vary from character to character, but early awakenings could have a severe impact, such as fatigue. This will be a new tool to add to a potential combat strategy.

Will there be character customization in Storm 3, such as selectable jutsus, ultimate jutsus, etc?
When a character awakens, the characters have new attacks, speeds, and jutsus. As for personalization, ideas from fans have been collected, and CyberConnect2 is formulating potential implementations as development progresses.

Will characters have new costumes?
Yes, there have been a lot of requests for this so new jutsus and outfits will be in! CyberConnect2 wants to meet the fan demand as a priority!

How does Matsumuya-san look at the option for creating your own ninja, village, buildings, affinities, jutsus, etc?
He thinks it’s very interesting, but not a feature that’s been asked for too much.

Will characters from Part 1 (the pre-timeskip characters) be in Naruto Storm 3?
The story will focus on the ninja war, so characters who have appeared in Naruto Shippuden will make a come back. Part 1 exclusive characters will not make a return. There will, however, be a lot of new characters!

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!

     I didn’t think Part 1 exclusive characters would return.

    However! The likes of Zabuza, Haku, etc. might be in, in their “Black Lantern” forms.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_S3L7CRXQACZXZYYH7TL5EMIPAI Salvador

    New Characters,Awakening Modes New jutsus,combo moves including air improving on a lot War will be best 

  • narutobleachop

    awakenings from the start!?! hmm that sounds interesting if there is going to be fatigue on characters!!

  • Jmenyfield

     I like how Hiroshi Matsuyama is so open about these questions and he actually listens to the fans feedback. That is why I hope that CyberConnect2 eventually gets a hole of more anime games. I want to see a Bleach and One Piece game using the same engine as the Ultimate Ninja Storm games it seems like they would fit so well!

  • pantsonadog

    Why not just keep the pre-time skip characters in? Also I think that’s kind of a lie about how making your own ninja wasn’t a popular request, that’d be awesome.

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

    stupid B******! dont take out the PTS characters! i love playing as them , i dont care if this game has the strongest naruto and sasuke i will still play as the kid versions! this game is called naruto shippuden ultimate ninja storm 3…..3 not 2.5 3!!!!!!! so this has to have PTS in to give the players the ULTIMATE experience

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/YDF3HDQE2GLJ5WF2I7N4VZTNVM Akito

    Omg.. you may go awakening any point in battle but might get fatigue if you awaken to early, Hellz yeah thats something that just upped the game for me.

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

    I really don’t like the sound of awakening from the start, imagine 6 tails or Susano’o going berserk from the start on !!!!!

  • Scott Baker

    why didnt the person ask if the storymode, will have storm 2s open world of traveling to places. mixed with the large scale open world of storm 1

  • Tobi

    True so i’m not worried about Kimimaro ^^

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000218035508 Sadike L Ricketts

    No Konohamaru or kurenai …. sice they didn’t take part in the war …. ;o and they better add  anko :o

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000218035508 Sadike L Ricketts

    Agreed 

  • Tobi

    If they put Everything in the next one it should be called “Naruto: The Ultimate Ninja Storm” ^^

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000218035508 Sadike L Ricketts

    especially if this is the last naruto storm game I would want ALL the characters

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_L5CQPLEDQ36Q76OY4AIM6LZXNY J

    hopefully those some of those 15 support will be playable 
    *cough* i want anko & kurenai *cough

  • GerardIsrael

    Great, the awakening anytime feature can really come in handy. I am glad PT characters aren’t in this bc it gives CC2 more time to develop the game and its battling system.

  • ssjbardock13

    FREE ROAM IS BACK BITCHES HELL FUCKING TO POWER OF YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

  • GerardIsrael

    It would be fun though lol

  • narutobleachop

    i will miss PTS Tenten. lol she was a beast!

  • Ilxus90

    So, if they will add the characters that fight in the war, they could add Anko, since she fights Kabuto right?

  • yoUNg_grOUp568

    so this game won’t start from the beginning of naruto

  • narutobleachop

    yup. i really hope she is playable. she needs some storm love!!

  • ssjbardock13

    They should @ least keep Zabuza & Haku in cause they make a Appearance  in Shippuden.

  • ssjbardock13

    I know, same here.

  • dubaloseven

    eh, i’m guessing they’ll take a marvel 3 approach. the more hurt your team is the longer it lasts. Personally I’m glad they are making a big step like that. Innovation FTW!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_S3L7CRXQACZXZYYH7TL5EMIPAI Salvador

     you sure some up with good comments lol yeaa free roam

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_S3L7CRXQACZXZYYH7TL5EMIPAI Salvador

    Storm 2 had 9 Boss Battles
    How many you think be in this one

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002867871812 Enrique Mendoza

    whaho look like this game most be amazing

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002867871812 Enrique Mendoza

    do you are going tu put kinkaku and ginkaku in  the story ? Also madara with the rinnegan ? please if you can  put the subtitution jutsu with the bars!!! everione with a new ultimate power.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ryan.gallagher.144 Ryan Gallagher

     He said that the story mode will take place from the war, but he also said that chars. that have appeared in shippuden will be in it, so konohamaru and anko may be in it, though sense kureni hasnt done anything except get knocked up, she probably wont.

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

    “A lot of new characters”  and awakenings will have all new attacks and jutsus plus new costumes i am officially hyped for this game haha 

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003736116216 Otaku Kun

    love the idea of awakening by the start of battle, and i do believe that Konohamaru should be added in the game because he already has his attacks set up, he has the rasengan and sexy jutsu as well as burning ash. i  believ that if they added him in the game for once he’d be as fun as playing with tobi, because of the sexy jutsu attacks, it could be ultimate jutsu or just combos i dont care just have in in the game. and i  have to agree of the pts characters. we shouldnt have them in the game because its not following the story line. and i dont believe this is the last game. when they do end the game series they should have every character though. with the entire full story from the 1st series of naruto to shippuden .

    O YEA

  • GerardIsrael

    I agree. Glad someone seen it the way I did lol

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001288951916 Jesus Villa

    “Events after meeting the Kages”
    So Kage summit will be in the game? This is suppossed to  pick up where Storm 2 left off.

  • Avery Ross

    PLEASSSSEEEE ADD AWAKENING SPECIALS AGAIN/ AND DONT MAKE THE AWAKENING MODES SO OVER POWERED! 

  • http://twitter.com/milk_sup milk

    but i what to who wen naruto came?

  • Rayson

    No dude ur trying to call it a Storm 2 but it stopped at generations -.- its better than starting at the middle

  • http://twitter.com/milk_sup milk

    Plz tell me 

  • http://www.facebook.com/quincy.dil Quincy Dil

    so in the final we will see a new juugo on this game…the game will start in the kage arc is right?

  • narutobleachop

    it could mean after generations. kage summit and kage meeting is the same thing.

  • http://twitter.com/BKnockamp AmpBknocka

    Interesting even though I wanted to hear about clash and longer jutsu but, it still sounds interesting I guess I will try it out….when it is about 20 or lower dollar signs   

  • positiveemotions

    SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET awakening from the start freaking awesome but i can already see people spamming with this lol

  • dark_flame360

    Neither are actually active in Shippuden, so I doubt it

  • dark_flame360

    Anko hasn’t done anything either. She got kidnapped, that’s basically it

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Uriah-Thompson/1039522778 Uriah Thompson

    NO KIDS IM TRYIN OF HAVING THE SAME PPL ALL THE TIME ITS STUPID and with naruto you should do were you can change you justu so you dont have to have so many of the same ppl and ppl r surprise that they foucs on the great war wow there not like dragon ball z there not off with the show releaseing with the game. storm one foucs on the kids storm 2 when they got older and generation why really they wanted to find out what work and what does not work  but if they was goin to give us something to hold over they should of not charge us 59.99 for a game like that cause they really play us it should of been 39.99 and i hope in this storm 3 they take it back like storm one when you in your awakeing that you can do your ultimate justu in it and they need to have select be a taunt and the right analog be something were you can do team battles and switch ppl like how tekken is they it be fun and a longer fight but i think this is really going to be the last game for storm cause only why i said that cause they doin like the show is think about they give us storm generation to hold over while the manga and the shows end  which is  around 2013 to put out this game naruto shippuden ultimate ninja storm 3 which is also so what 2013 the exact time the manga and show  ends i think this well be the last storm game we ever play unless after this they do storm generatoin 2 with all the games mix together now that be the finally one lol

  • dark_flame360

    Survive and then beat the crap out of them with the fatigue 

  • Zaikoto D Sora Raiden

    ninja creator Matsuyama-san!!that would make it a hell of a lot replayable

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

    yeah and they should have an coustume for normal eyes or edo tensei eyes same for kimimaro.

  • positiveemotions

    If kcm narut’s awakening is the bijuu naruto he will be the first character i try in a rank fight and player match

  • http://twitter.com/Rafael_Fijos Rafael Martins

    “Part 1 exclusive characters will not make a return”. Seriously? I mean, after Naruto Generations there won’t be no Part 1 character? My hype is gone…

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Uriah-Thompson/1039522778 Uriah Thompson

    yea it was alot they could of done in generation choji butterfly mode orochimarui goes into 8 tails serpernt that WOULD BE HELL OF TIGHT every one else goe big why not orochimaur jugo should of really went into his full curse mark i didnt know why that didnt happen and this was in the summit smh kid gara should of went into his biji mode were he look like he about to turn im so mad they did zarbrua wrong this could of did him so better super mode and all haku ok they should have when sasuke now when he goes in his awakeing he has 2 choices one susano then the other when he on the hawk the sound 4 should of been in that i dont care what no one say why each one of them had like 3 r 4 eposides bythem self but namco said they didnt have anything for them thats why thats they support thats bs every one know that when ever you can go take lar from a different game and give him all types of moves you can do for you own but i know storm 3 going to be good all i ask if they can let you do ultimate justu in awaking mode and that the select button be for taunts and the right analong should be for team to switch for the ppl on your team it would make the battle last longer like how clash of ninja is when you switch in the middle of battle and im not goin to ask for characters cause i know they goin to do a great job in that

  • *Super~Sayian*

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

    add jugo cs2 too pls AMAZING CHAR ^^

  • http://twitter.com/erickcid21 erick cid valenzuela

    add all jinchuuriki

  • Deva_Pain_Path

    why would they talk about adding madara when he is not even revealed in the anime….the anime is at kinka and ginkaku and they make the game follow the anime not the manga….for sure kinka and ginkaku are going to be added in the storm 3

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/OJJIGSPTV6UBDX6LTP6KVFZD6U Master

    If part one isnt in it that means no 3rd hokage? ouo

  • okimnothere

    how long untill madara appear  in the anime  and not the manga 

  • *Super~Sayian*

    Costume:
    I love it, if they could make an what if costume for naruto and sasuke wearing their leaf village’s jounin flap jackets, Or itachi and kakashi back in their anbu outfits, which is technically considered canon, even thou they were only shown in flashbacks. 

    Story mode/gameplay wise: 
    since its going back to Storm 2 roots, It’ll return the same dbz-ish fighting style that the anime never had, just imagine playing as sasuke on his hawk dodging danzo’s wind jutsus creating some rediculous jutsu that sasuke could had never done in the anime or manga, while at the sametime clicking the command buttons to do crazy jutsus. Or naruto trying to take out nagato on his re-animated bird, then all of sudden once nagato is at his 100% power, he’ll use all these rediculous godlike elements such as an tsunami or gigantic piles of rocks thrown at you, while naruto would have to jump and land on 8 tailed and run up his arm to deliver an Rasen shuriken lol. 

    Multiplayer gameplay wise:
    I highly doubt longer jutsus will return, but I am glad they allow us to transform sooner, and from the looks of what he said, they’ll basically be slow, similar to how tsunade was back on the PS2 ( NUN3 ) where after she basically awakened her healing and attack power, she became extremely slow. I also noticed that the interviewer said will their be customization, where the developer said, they might consider it, but then the next question was about costumes, and the guy said they’ll be new jutsu and outfits. to me it seems like contradiction, simply cause he said he would think about it later on done development, yet he mentioned they’re “WILL” be new jutsu. In otherwords its going to be the same 6 different whatever narutos, but since he said they’ll be new jutsu when “awakened” that’ll mean they’ll probley reduce most of the naruto’s and sasuke characters, idk seems confusing.. 

    the plot: 
    he seemed hesitate about saying will madara be in the game, sure not to spoil it for others, but then again.. what’s their to hide? all he had to say, it’ll go all the way up to the end of naruto.. So unless the manga has an additional arc after the war, I think the story will go up NEAR the climax but not ending of naruto. its possible that he too might not know how the actual manga will end, so its justify why he’ll laugh and say he doesn’t know yet. my personal opinion, he’ll save the finale of naruto for generations. as much as storm 3 seems it’ll be great, I think they’re going to save their FULL potential for either storm generations 2 or an whole new naruto game.. if not storm 4 but hey, its only the early stages, infact if I’m correct generations was confirmed last year on june, and the stuff they had for that is nothing compared to its final. So storm 3 will still have allot more than expected.. as for me.. no madara, means no storm 3.

  • okimnothere

    u right cause if no madara no new tsunade or the other kage new jutsu no sage kabuto  and itachi nagato  
     irealy hope thats not what hes doing a waste of 60 bucks 

  • http://www.facebook.com/dewayne.glass Dewayne Glass

    yes i will love to see bleach.

  • *Super~Sayian*

    he’s been revealed since the moment tobi “showed” an flashback of madara.
    - I think you’re referring to RG madara.

  • Michael Wright

    Even though he isnt in the anime yet, he will be soon. Luckily, the fillers seem to have been skipped this time around. Usually we’d be in filler right now.

  • *Super~Sayian*

    unless that’s an epic foreshadow of what to expect in the manga, then it means  sarutobi’s with the fox 16 years ago plays an relevent plot to the story in shippuden even if its an quote on quote “flashback”.. heck so did madara, so maybe that’s an foreshadow hell be in this game.

  • http://www.facebook.com/dewayne.glass Dewayne Glass

    i will love if they make a bleach game like how naruto storm is from the begining of bleach to the end of bleach.

  • Arnulfo Rabago

    I wish they start with the kyubi vs naruto boss battle

  • okimnothere

    is tsunade pathway derangement jutsu  that impossible to make or just too spammable
    and talking about spamming the interviewer should have said will masked man jutsu be toned down abit 

  • Michael Wright

    Its funny how we’re all here again only a few months later after generations xD 

  • narutopiece1

    So far so good :D

  • http://www.facebook.com/quincy.dil Quincy Dil

    Impossible !
    Naruto storm 1 finished with naruto vs sasuke fight from the first series.
    Naruto storm 2 finish with Pain fight in Konoha.
    And now it’s obbligatory that Naruto storm 3  starts from the kage arc
    So why in the interwiev he say’s that start’s after?there be a mistake or he is a little bit confuse

  • Sageof SixPath

    So we are not getting any boss battles between Sasuke and the kages and even vs Danzo smh a let down.-_-

  • Aldridge517

    I like the idea of early awakenings (I’m sure they’ll balance it out). Waiting until your health is low to awaken is disingenuous to the series. Imagine playing a DBZ game where the only time you could transform is when your health was low, that would be ridiculous :P

    And I’m not interested in creating my own ninja but customization for existing Naruto characters would be great

  • http://www.facebook.com/quincy.dil Quincy Dil

    yeah it seems very sick…i wish both of them
    i really don’t understand

  • Sageof SixPath

    Man that shitty arc man i want to see that in boss battles smh

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000306387457 Imam Pratama

    that means. no 4 sound like sakon and Tayuya for support?

  • http://www.facebook.com/quincy.dil Quincy Dil

    and for me because to see if cyberconnect will make an effort to put juugo CS2

  • positiveemotions

    I am sure we will have more epic boss battles even if danzo vs sasuke or the kages vs sasuke is not there I am fine with that bc we will have more then 9 boss battles well I hope anyways and I know for sure kcm naruto will have rasengan planet bc in this month we will see naruto in the war in the anime

  • http://www.facebook.com/quincy.dil Quincy Dil

    i think that there is an error,for my opinion there will be the kage and danzo fight

  • positiveemotions

     If that happens than awesome if not than its still ok with me bc like i said we will have plenty of epic boss battles

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_MPQX5JI6XQXE57KTFN6DRAI2PE Brandon

    Why are people so butt hurt for pts characters? There are way too many cool potential characters for that. The kekkei Genkai characters, the original 7 Blades, the Old Kages, Kinkaku & Ginkaku, the Jinchurikis. Not to mention all the Lightning, Stone, and Leaf ninja that haven’t been in ANY of the games yet. I liked pts characters in Generations, but If not having them means 15 or so extra character slots for new people, then good riddance. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/quincy.dil Quincy Dil

    oooooooooooh noooo now i see ….the game will start from tobi to the summit telling to the kages that the 4th ninja war is beginning…there it is…so we will not see sasuke vs raikage

  • http://www.facebook.com/ddunigan2 David Dunigan

    Make no mistake, I am glad. But I’ll be hacked if they release it on XBOX 360!

  • http://www.facebook.com/quincy.dil Quincy Dil

    like i right just 1 second ago,i think that the game will start from tobi declaring the 4th ninja war .So after this they will skip sasuke vs raikaga and go directly to danzo vs sasuke.

  • positiveemotions

    Let the complainers began lmfao

  • positiveemotions

     lol u mad bro?

  • positiveemotions

    @facebook-1366414057:disqus yes ik dude even if they skip 5 kages meeting I am fine with that to all i wanna do is fight and unlock all the awesome characters

  • Shogunreaper

    So basically you bring back pts characters in generations, then make much needed adjustments to the fighting system, and then leave them out.

    Yeah, that seems logical.

  • Shogunreaper

    Having pts characters in wouldn’t suddenly make it so new characters can’t be added.

    Why do people think that, it makes no sense.

  • Shogunreaper

    Well they aren’t really the same thing. In dbz games transforming doesn’t really give you any boosts, it just changes appearance and your moveset. Also most dbz games allow you to choose the transformation before the fight.

  • positiveemotions

     dude its not Generations 2 its Storm 3

  • http://www.facebook.com/quincy.dil Quincy Dil

    yeah me too…hope to see the real madara using him amazing jutsu

  • Shogunreaper

    Who cares what the name of it is, that has nothing to do with the content they can put in.

  • Jmenyfield

    It was called Storm GENERATIONS for a reason, this is not Generations 2 this is Storm 3 and people seemed to have forgotten this just because they’ve gotten a little taste of nostalgia

    No offense but seriously if you want to play as the PTS characters then just stick with Storm 1 and Generations, I don’t see why CC2 has to suffer for people that don’t know how to control their cravings for more nostalgia.

  • positiveemotions

     I feel like he will be in the game i mean as i said naruto will be in the war and after that happens wont be long until we see madara which i think it will be this year unless they show fillers

  • positiveemotions

     their not gonna put pt characters dude bc its naruto shippuden not regular naruto their only gonna put characters from the attack of the leaf village by the 9t and characters from the war

  • Jmenyfield

    IKR? A large sum of gamers are never satisfied about ANYTHING nowadays. And they wonder why game developers never put what they want in their games because they complain so much that they don’t know what they want xD

  • Shogunreaper

    So your saying if i want to play with pts characters i should go back to an inferior version of the game? With less improvements to the fighting system?

    Makes sense.

    And what the hell do you mean suffer, they are creating a game for fans, they should give the people what they want instead of trying to milk them by waiting for the next installment.

    I just read your insulting comment towards me for just stating innocent opinions, So I’ll randomly post it here, the same way you randomly posted it in the previous NUNS3 article. So I’ll copy and paste what you indirectly sent to me rather than directly to my post. 

     @Super-Saiyan
    “It clearly shows the battle of the nine tails fox on the video if your blind or just stupid or Im guessing you dont know shit about naruto cuz b4 naruto was born this happened. So yes their will probally be a HUGE RPG story mode from the beginning of Naruto when he was young to the current shippuden arc. (including every boss battle) CC2 can just add that if not then they must be lazy as shit…”- yea umm.. next time you try to insult my intelligence or troll someone, make sure what you’re saying is darn right accurate, otherwise you’ll make yourself look like an complete baffoon kid. I think this, No I’m sure this interview confirms who’s the blind, stupid and don’t know shit about naruto… aka JAMES ISSAC. peace

  • Jmenyfield

    Actually Storm 1 looks like it has been the best Naruto game so far

    Also, you’re not understanding the fact that they have to move on, this is not Naruto anymore it’s Naruto SHIPPUDEN so just deal with it or just not buy the game. I don’t see how this is a big shock to you anyways, Storm 2 didn’t have PTS characters either so why did you think this game was going to be any different?

  • positiveemotions

     hahaha that was funny like seriouslly dude ppl b!tch to much about characters not being in the game and when their finally in the game they dont fcking pick them like in generations u harly see any zabuza or haku or even 1st and 2nd hokage its like cc2 waits their time on adding those characters bc of the selfish and ungreatful fans who want something and not even use it seriouslly ppl grow the fck up

  • http://www.facebook.com/quincy.dil Quincy Dil

    exactly! it’s storm 3..naruto generations not rappresent the storm series,is totally different. the more resonable you can say is there will be characters of the shippuden arc in this new game

  • http://www.facebook.com/quincy.dil Quincy Dil

    probably yes ,also zabuza or haku controll by the edo tensei and the 7 swordman and who more?hahahaha 

  • positiveemotions

     cc2 has allot of preasure from fans dude not just the fans but the people who ask cc2 to release the game as soon as possible and they do their very best to please the fans so you should be greatful that their even thinking about us fans and making this storm 3 game for us fans I for one am greatful to them even if there is some things i dont like about generations does not mean i am not greatful for putting all their effort into the game and not even that dude they started on s3 when they finished with ng,

    so please respect cc2

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001285930400 Nigel Davis

    Maybe they could make a 2-disc game, Disc 1=PTS Disc 2=Shippuden?

  • Shogunreaper

    @google-2ffbbc7ff138ff76ce10e3c8818e1ca5:disqus

    Why did i think it would be different? Logic maybe?

    What is the point of removing dozens of characters you just redid? The only reason i can think of is laziness.

  • http://www.facebook.com/quincy.dil Quincy Dil

    correct, so  we will see a lot of new characters and zetsu will be in for sure this time.maybe  zabuza and haku ,the 7 swordman all controlled by the edo tensei

  • Deidara19

    hmmm. I dont know if I read your post right but This game begins past that part. This games starts after the Kage Summit and covers the actual 4th shinobi world war.

  • Shogunreaper

    @positiveemotions:disqus 

    I do respect cc2, to a point.

    What i don’t respect is them abandoning their buggy games because they don’t want to spend the money to patch them.

  • positiveemotions

     dude cc2 tries hard in their games they dont sit in their coach and be like ya ya do that no they listen to fans and for james he should chill out the game was not meant for him alone but for many fans i do with cc2 started the story from very beginning of shippuden but i know that wont happen I am still glad we get to have a game

  • http://www.facebook.com/quincy.dil Quincy Dil

    my english is bad sorry.
    maybe i’m saying wrong but for me it will start with tobi talking with the kages.From where point exactly it will start for you?

  • positiveemotions

     they have all the money in the world to put them in the game if they wanted to dude all i am saying you might regret saying what u r saying know because u never know u mite like the game allot

  • Shogunreaper

     Nothing I’ve said is wrong, so there is nothing to regret.

  • positiveemotions

     u never know dude i am just saying just be happy about this u know u like it lol

  • Deidara19

    I’m absolutely loving how there will be new outfits and jutsus! This is the main addition I wanted.I also like how we will be able to awaken from the start of the match and I like the idea of having some kind of drawback to using awakening mode. To me this makes the battle more realistic to the anime. 
    As for not-implementing PTS characters, I personally see this as a sutible loss because their time to shine has been passed and the story doesn’t focus on them anymore. Plus they will be replaced with more new and better characters.

  • positiveemotions

    I feel like this game might be similar to storm 1 bc u can already awaken from the beginning and i find that very interesting 

  • http://www.facebook.com/quincy.dil Quincy Dil

    this game will be the top 

  • positiveemotions

     do u say that in a positive way or negative way?

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/YDF3HDQE2GLJ5WF2I7N4VZTNVM Akito

    That’d be awesome sauce if they returned this to PS3 exclusive, more time to put it into one console.

  • http://www.facebook.com/quincy.dil Quincy Dil

    positive of course!!! there are no negative way … the only game that i have not buy is generations but this one i will take it 

  • http://www.facebook.com/DaddeyGrimSkey Jean Vazquez

    They should release DLC for characters that don’t make it in 3 such as PTS chars. They should also release DLC for boss battles beyond the games ending as well as stages and alternate character costumes.

  • *Super~Sayian*

    you’re right, CC2 do try hard on their games, but theirs an difference between trying hard, playing smart. what’s that saying? better to work smart than to work hard? I knew the moment generation’s was confirmed, that it’s sole purpose was to add part 1 and 2, while storm series focused more on shippuden. CC2 imo are really smart when it comes to getting our money. that’s why I think ( atleast according to this article ) that CC2 we’ll either end the naruto series here or stop somewhere in the war, and let the future unknown naruto have the complete story of naruto part 1 and 2, its not trying hard, but playing smart. but idiot james issac thinks not only me but others are idiots, dumba**, for stating something that will most likely come true.

  • positiveemotions

    @facebook-1366414057:disqus  honestly i think you should buy ng so you can practice on how to use the sub bar

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/József-Pálos/100001576711815 József Pálos

    “Does that mean the story will go up until the appearance of Madara?”

    What kind of stupid question is this? The games always go up til’ the point where the anime is around the release date. this game comes out next year, sometimes spring, and Madara’s appear in the anime is like 5-8 episodes away? thats October at worst case, of course he will be in. if they don’t filler the hell out of the series, then the anime should be around the point where the manga is now sometimes early next year.

    If the manga ends this year or early next year (which is plausable, since the final battle coming up), then the anime will speed up, and by the release date it maybe even finishes, just like how the FMA brotherhood anime ended 2 weeks after the manga ended.

  • positiveemotions

    Well yea cc2 makes games to get money bc its their job to make games but at the same time cc2 is the only company that i know that listens to fans and work smart and hard this game is starting to look like storm one well so far anyways

  • Aldridge517

    You can’t start with transformations in the original Budokai games but that’s irrelevant. 

    CC2 don’t need to go as far as DBZ (massively nerfing transformations) to make this work they just need to balance it out with awakening penalties, which are already a part of the game. Cool down times, stat drops after awakenings wear off, etc. They can balance it easy.

  • *Super~Sayian*

    true, but theirs an difinte divide line of an company trying to get money like their suppose too and then trying to get greedy, but yes, I’ll be humble and say CC2 does listen to us UNLIKE crapcom. So at the end it balances out I suppose. hopefully if this isn’t the last installment, like you say it’ll look more like storm 1. I’m sure everyone can agree on an longer ougi jutsu from RG madara or naruto KCM beast mode. lol

  • positiveemotions

    Crapcom hahaha goodone man lol i never liked them either honestly tho i never cared for long/short ougis as long as it looks epic like minato shonning looks very awesome and i think he will get a new justu or ougi bc of the flash back from the manga wen he went against bee and raikage

  • Shogunreaper

    It is irrelevant since i said most dbz games, not all.

    But i agree that they can get it right, but i’m losing faith in their ability to balance characters properly.

  • *Super~Sayian*

    yea as long as its epic, That’s all that matters, I just hope by then they’ll focus more on the quality of an character instead of making several copies with different jutsus, that way it’ll feel like we’re playing the actual character instead of an card board box cut out of one ya know.

  • positiveemotions

    Ya if u notice they changed minato allot the facial express looks way more realistic and the graphics are waay better i hope its a 1080p game i have a good feeling about this game i do. I just hate how ppl complain so much i mean come on the game barely has been announce

  • Maxie_Dakota

    Ok, Some Questions Were Answered But most of these questions sucked like i wanna know more about The story mode because if the style from Storm 2 Is returning when it took you a thousand years to get something accomplished and limited Mobility ima be so dissapointed they should return to storm 1 style and are new modes included? Online features, this sucked.

  • positiveemotions

     dude chill out man they didn’t say much of the story mode bc the game is still in full development dude so chill out and wait for more updates

  • positiveemotions

     is not a stupid question because that guy was curious and wanted to know because maybe he is sure that many fans want to know this and not everyone thinks like u do so give them a break

  • Deva_Pain_Path

    The anime is going to go on break soon if you saw the episode guide posted by saiyanisland

  • Deva_Pain_Path

    Tobi never did much and revealed no jutsu besides being able to go through things and run

  • Deva_Pain_Path

    i’m guessing a few months most likely probably in october or so if they don’t throw any fillers

  • Ignas

    Or fairy tail, or KHR . They both are awesome fighting manga’s that would fit very well.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_MPQX5JI6XQXE57KTFN6DRAI2PE Brandon

    Remember the whole sound 4 issue for Generations? The main reason for them being omitted was a time constraint. People who actually fund the game give cc2 deadlines. They have a limited amount of time for making shit, so id rather them not waste it on old things. 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_MPQX5JI6XQXE57KTFN6DRAI2PE Brandon

    Or just wait for the inevitable Generations 2.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_MPQX5JI6XQXE57KTFN6DRAI2PE Brandon

    Yeah. Sick of the “pts or gtfo” shit lol.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001922838282 Manaf Hadou

    is cc2 gonna change some of the characters movesets, and are they gonna bring jutsu clashes

  • positiveemotions

    We have no choice but to put up with them

  • Shogunreaper

    I don’t believe that for a second, was just an excuse.

    But even on the slim chance that was true they could have added them in later as dlc, but they couldn’t bother with that because they are cheap.

    And the characters are already made, all they have to do is fix their own mistakes and balance them out more.

  • Al D.

    So you want a bunch of OP characters like PTS Gaara ,Neji, and Lee back? Good luck.

  • mauricekelm

    Sounds cool 

  • SasukexNaruto2

    Wow no Pts characters I hope every character is changed new moveset new jutsu new everything & every character from the war playable.

  • SasukexNaruto2

    I would like them back not OP though but I have a feeling doing a tournament everyone going to pick Madara I rather have more characters to give others variety I hate when everyone picks the same characters in tournaments.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001383653961 Rafael Georgiou

    Yes characters will have new jutsus and the new awakening feature is amazing!!This part when minato uses Raijin LV 2 IS NOT PART OF A BOSS BATTLE!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/tilyn.rudd Tilyn Rudd

    are the team specials going to be like ultimate ninja 5 i hope so plz ask

  • ResidentMetroid

    You can awaken in the beginning of the match… Oh my god, really? At least nerf the stupid thing. As someone once said, Awakening mode is cheap and unnecessary.

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

    Yes! This means this might be the last storm game because of the focus on the war arc! Hopefully we’ll still get to play as Zabuza, Haku, and Kimimaru. (Sound 4 too)

  • VongolaBoss

    Nah, they’re gonna keep milkin this. IMO Generations should’ve been the last storm game with EVERYTHING in it. But nah, they’ll probably make some new game later with PTS Characters if not have them as DLC.

    Look at DBZ. Its been over for YEARS. Yet they make more and more games. The Storm series… or maybe I should say, CC2 is not done with Naruto lol

  • http://twitter.com/UchihaGon GoncaloCardoso

    nice.. i like what he said :D new jutsus , costumes , only shippuden , focus the war arc..but i see that if madara go into the game will be like kabutomaru from generations..

  • http://www.facebook.com/donovan.hansen.5 Donovan Hansen

    awesome thanks for the info, hope you can play as madara and you can enter battle in mode just awesome, kcm naruto here i come

  • NSUNSG001

    Will the 2nd Hokage be in the game since it’s only shippuden characters?????

  • http://www.facebook.com/DonJahhh Tonza Uomala

    Hehe, I’m thinking the exact same thing myself… I’m guessing there will be a lot of changes in the Awakening mechanics, cause otherwise this decision would be stupid as all hell :p

  • GalacticGHZoneX

    I’d like to see what, “costumes,” they will have for characters that they didn’t have before, something like Taka with their cloaks (excluding Sasuke), the new cloaks that the reanimated Akatsuki have, A with his white coat, and the like.

  • http://www.facebook.com/DonJahhh Tonza Uomala

    I think it’ll be best to just wait for new information before starting the complaining and bashing. Just let the information come out when it does, what’d be fun in revealing everything right off the bat?

    I am pretty glad that the part 1 characters aren’t in. They just did not mix well with the new ones, due to the fact that they were way too powerful and cheap, at least some of them. And for those who think this’ll be the last game. I don’t believe that at all. Wouldn’t be surprised if there was Generations 2 with the main focus on fighting and character roster. The Story mode was never really that important for me, but I’m waiting for the Story on this one, for sure.

    Interesting interview. I cant wait for new characters announcement. I hope Omoi, Madara, Izumo, Kotetsu, and Aoba be in the game, but mainly Omoi and Madara.

  • GameFreak667

    Now THAT’S an interview that answers fans’ questions. 

    Oh, and… HA! I knew there wouldn’t be PTS characters. This is Storm 3, not Generations 2.

  • GameFreak667

    Well, in the country that I live in, Generations costs an equivalent of $90, so the price could’ve been worse… just sayin’.

  • naruto_fan_desia

    but now i have a feeling that they will make generations 2 -.-

  • naruto_fan_desia

    i agree but i feel if they are going to make the last game it should cover the whole story line from the very begging till the end plus fillers cause that will be awesome and going through every detail of the story plus side missions  that we got in storm 1 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2PLGNQ7HGMXJ4C2YPWC7T2MRX4 Devante

     to add on… naruto in pajamas, minato without jonin jacket, hokage naruto costume, sakura,temari, choji etc in their war outfits

  • GameFreak667

    Exactly. Generations 2 will have the WHOLE story this time (hopefully). I think Generations 2 will be the last Naruto game for these consoles.

  • unleashrage

    yeah orochimaru and deidara ultimates are horrible i totally agree.

  • GameFreak667

    I was actually relieved to see that it costs $90, because Storm 2 costs $100 here. They are really exaggerating on the prices here.

    nah not really because there are better characters to be played than them…and also pts char. are not the original characters, its their development and growth in between both of the series, that makes any character “original”!

  • RedDragon10

    No part 1 characters?  No definite ending?  No entire shippuden to present story mode?  I don’t know about you guys but I’m definitely disappointed. 

  • RedDragon10

    How so?  The more characters the better right?  I had to sit through reading about how everyone whined about wanting the sound 4 in the last game and now that doesn’t even seem like a possibility

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

    They will attempt to make the awakening at any time mechanic balanced, question is will they succeed. 

    No PTS characters is a plus. They were built differently then the Storm 2 characters, and it shows considerably in Generations.

    I love how he answered the question about “customization.” There will be new jutsu and costumes! Well no sh!t.

    We are coming up with ways as we develop the game to implement them. Coming up with ways? YOU EITHER IMPLEMENT THEM OR YOU DON’T. You’ve done it before. You saying you caught amnesia?

    *massive facepalm*

  • RedDragon10

    I have to agree with you.  Although I don’t even understand why people want to create their own ninja as well. 

  • unleashrage

    As silly as it sounds i think its so people can create a ninja with the powers they like the most, but if create a ninja does make it i doubt it will be very well done probably a short list of faces you choose from. plus it adds more characters to the game. 

  • RedDragon10

    I don’t know.  Maybe its just me but I can’t stand the idea of putting a “create a” feature in my anime fighters.  I just think that I would rather play with the characters that I adore than some random character I created.  If i wanted to make a character I would by an mmo.

    But I totally agree with you on the fact that there would only be a select amount of things to customize in that feature anyway. 

  • unleashrage

    It’s not just you i hope create a ninja doesn’t make it either and i agree with what you said about playing with characters you like instead of a random character.

  • daewoo94

    No Part 1 Characters? That’s the biggest let down…. I thought this would be an over-the-top game. Guess I was wrong…

  • *Super~Sayian*

    but he wasn’t an flashback thou.

  • *Super~Sayian*

    not true, most spammers are actually pretty smart sadly…. if they did do combo’s then the opponent against the kyuubi could have hidan, kimimaru, anko which actually ends up taking out most of the kyuubi’s sub bars, since MOST awakener(s) tend to get reckless and forget all about blocking and dodging.

  • Nelson Alves

    But just think if there will be alot of new characters that means people like hanzo and gaara’s dad will be playable because they play a good part in the war and since the war is not done yet im guessing characters that will be playable will be 

    Basically every one that it shows fight should be playable even if it shows them fight a little bit. well that what im hoping for if cc2 could do anything to fix the problem of all part1 characters gone put every single character that you see actually do something in the show in Storm 3. I don’t read the manga so this is all about the characters i know.

  • raigathebest

    They picking up from where storm 2 left off. There’s no need to do a whole shippuden story mode again since they practically did that in storm 2. Doing it again would just be a waste of time imo.

  • raigathebest

    lmao, i’ll take that as a no as far as having multiple jutsus go, lol. If what he says is true by ”
    CyberConnect2 wants to meet the fan demand as a priority!” then he’ll take this into consideration and add multiple jutsus/costumes per character damn it.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001285930400 Nigel Davis

    Which will hopefully be a 2-Disc game for maximum content and enjoyment. It does sound like they are really listening to fans. Generations 2 will probably have the same kind of story mode like the first but will have Storm 3 fighting mechanics with a few improvements. All characters playable with selectable jutsus and what not. They better not work on it until Storm 3 is 100% done! I want them to focus all their time on Storm 3 so they don’t fukk up!

    ye when it comes to the pts characters they were lazy and just reused the old already built ones from storm 1, unless they redid them completely i can care less, as for customization they never done it before for the storm series, plus they have the make and see if it works before they can say we have it hence the phrase “coming up with new ways”, just be patient

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

    no it isn’t this storm 3 which should be the ULTIMATE game and therefore PTS MUST be present in the character roster!

    this may not be the ultimate game, they confirmed that it will definitely be the last game of the storm series but never the last game, plus the way they were explaining it above, this game may not go to the end of the war, but just during the war, so nothings confirmed yet

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

    i dont know why people complain about this, ive never lost a battle with someone using masked man, in fact im more confident if they do because that big spamming jutsu is actually a big weakness, but i guess not many people know this, i can care less whether they keep him the same or not

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

    i dont disagree big time, but that would be a gigantic story mode (that probably wouldn’t work for our poor xbox lovers lol) but the war itself would make a gigantic story mode

  • bbflash

    And do not forget to put those character: Pakura, Toroi, Gari and Darui.E discupa there if I’m asking more is that these characters are the basics so that the fans are happy differentiated characters.

      Until Cyberconnect 2 announces something like “Naruto Ultimate Ninja

    still be waiting for “The whole package”.

    @jermar wow i seriously hope this goes up to the war end cause then i don’t see a point for a storm 3 to happen if its not complete since it is the final game in the storm series.

    another character, MU is sure to have him.

    so you can start a battle in awakening form

    Will have an exciting fight with the MU vs Tsuchikage and I’m seeing

  • MinatoNamikaze

    In my opinion, awakening from the start sounds great, but it should not be included online. Imagine 6-tails, 8-tails, Susano’o, 8 gates going bersek from the start… Alot of spammers are going to spam those characters just to start with awakening and win online… So, awakening from the start in story mode and free battle, but not online!

    seriously ppl stop complaining about the pts char not being in the game seriously is called naruto SHIPPUDEN ultimate ninja storm 3 not naruto shippuden ultimate ninja storm GENERATIONS. when the first game came out it was called naruto ninja storm because it was when naruto and them were kids then it came out naruto SHIPPUDEN ultimate ninja storm 2 came out and storm 2 left off where stormed one finished at and naruto shippuden ultimate ninja storm GENERATIONS was just a game they made to keep us waiting for storm 3 and naruto SHIPPUDEN ultimate ninja storm 3 is where storm 2 or storm generations left of so chill out people

    will be horrible if that” large” amount is because of these classic characters more if I have the list of characters entam shippuden going to be cool

    well your right, i’m calm now, i hope they somehow make up for the PTS characters though i do think there still will be some PTS character cause it says there will be no ”exclusive” PTS so maybe we might still see zabuza and haku and also kimmimaro. 

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

    alright everyone listen up, theres a petition for dragon ball zenkai battle royal, go on the youtube user who is called mastergui2025 in one of his videos theres a video for zenkai battle royal petition and theres the link in the description so please go on it and give your signature if you are interested in wanting this game that is for the arcade online in japan,spread the word on youtube,facebook and were ever else you visit. sorry that i can’t point the link here cause when i did it it said ”comment waiting for approval” or something like that.

  • daewoo94

    That would be so cool… However I think some of those ideas are a little far fetched. The seven swordsmen, Fu, Torune, Akatsuchi, Dan, Hizashi, Hiashi, Shin, Gari, Pakura, Shee, and the black girl are all a bit of a stretch. They would definitely make great supports…even though i hate support only… Would love to see all of those as playable. 

  • positiveemotions

     well ya the edo tensei haku and zabuza and kimimaru yea they should be in the game

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001292866466 Frank Cerullo

    “story will focus on the ninja war, so characters who have appeared in Naruto Shippuden will make a come back. Part 1 exclusive characters will not make a return.” does this mean edo tensei part chars ( taht appered in part 2 like haku and zabuza) will or will not be in the game?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001292866466 Frank Cerullo

    and hopefully there is edo tensei haku and zabuza to look forward to i love’d their edo tensei fight :’(

  • RedDragon10

    A waste of time?  How is telling the story a waste of time?  How come budokai 2 didn’t start off at the end of the cell saga?  How come ultimate ninja 2 started from the beginning of the story instead right after ultimate ninja 1?  How come ultimate ninja 3 started from the beginning of the story instead of right after ultimate ninja 2?  Your reasoning makes no sense. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001292866466 Frank Cerullo

    and guys with no time skip chars and no story mode before the war they can work on making teh war ten times more epic making the chars ten times more powerful and maybe even more combos :D who knows. but this gives them more time to make the game awesome.

    Naruto shippuden ultimate ninja 4.  Had PTS characters to go along with the “shippuden” name.  How do u explain that?

  • positiveemotions

    Ya i wanna use them

    i think what they say with exclusive are the characters that dont appear in this serie like the sound 4 , pts naruto, sasuke , sakura , neji , etc..

  • *Super~Sayian*

    its not called “horrible” its called smart, they just earned an extra 1 million dollars.

  • daewoo94

    Explain to me how that’s a smart decision. You and a lot of other people are stuck on the mindset that to have new characters you have to ditch old characters. This isn’t so. You can still add new characters and keep old ones. The Part 1 characters were great additions and now other characters like the sound 4 won’t even be considered. Is that what you want? New characters will be great but there will be a big gap where the Part 1 characters left. 

  • *Super~Sayian*

    I thought about that, but then it occured to me that if they transform early does that mean they can keep transforming after it resets, how long does the fatigue state last? from what the guy says, it’ll give the awakener an advantage earlier but then afterwards their pretty much screwed.. how ever this fatigue works, I pray it’ll effect their jutsus by either making the cool down severely slower ( so spammers will suffer ) OR it’ll make their jutsus weaker ( so spammers will suffer ). if this is the case, then that’ll help us even more if the opponent transform early, plus even if they managed to do lots of damage I highly doubt it’ll be enough for an kill, especially if we have the right support team. so once the awaken is over.. its our turn to beat the crap out of them. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001078851229 Kyryll Jericho

    I want kimimaro to be in it : ( 

  • RedDragon10

    @positiveemotions:disqus Here is what I said:  I told you just because the “shippuden” name isn’t on the cover of the game, doesn’t mean that there isn’t reason enough that pts characters can’t be in the game with the exception of generations that you gave.  I declined by stating the previous ultimate ninja series had the shippuden name and pts charcters.  Your saying that the two series are different and you believe that it is enough to quell the argument.  The storm series branched off from the ultimate ninja series meaning that there is some continuity.  If anyone is being “stubborn, childish, and selfish” than that would be you.  I’m stating my opinion on what you exactly wrote.  Don’t cry about it.

    And don’t tell me what to buy.  I’ve been buying the entire ultimate ninja series games since the first one hit the states in 06.  Am I upset that there won’t be any pts characters? Hell yeah.  But is it because the name shippuden is included on the box without generations following it? Hell no.  That isn’t a reason.  That’s your opinion. 

  • http://twitter.com/UchihaGon GoncaloCardoso

    i’m really happy that this dont have pts characters. there’s no logic to it . it’s a sequel not a new game. and i prefer 10000x they make this the last game with all shippuden characters than going to a storm 4 or generations 2

  • RedDragon10

    You also contradicted yourself.  You first said that CC2 will listen to their fans but then you said they won’t listen to me even if I “cry” although i am a fan. Your saying the majority of fans don’t want more characters in the form of pts characters? thats bull.

  • *Super~Sayian*

    Its SMART because it involves MONEY, and each character has an price tag over its head, they know if an “certain character” is in an game, that’ll increase there sales dramatically. the characters whose worth alot are saved for later occasions. why does it take so long to make the sound 4? why is it so hard to make some of these supports to become playable? why all of sudden would they remove part 1 ninja’s from storm 3 instead of having ALL characters in from beginning to end? cause they knew from the start that they would drag this franchise and sqeeze as much profit from it until till its completely dry. as much as people don’t want to accept it. its the same BS from the DBZ saga when they “remove” certain characters. why?! so they could use them for the sequel, meaning more cash.

  • positiveemotions

     well your complaining about cc2 not putting the pts in s3 which i do understand how u feel about that tho but u know its cc2′choice yes u do have your opinion on that and i have mine i am only saying it makes sense for them not to include pts char in s3 bc as i said before not just me tho many other ppl also agree that nsg was just a waiting game for s3 to come out i am just happy we get a naruto game i know u love your pts cha but as of now u can do as u please if u wanna buy s3 then do it if not then dont but if u wanna pts char then u have no choice but to play your other naruto games that u have but at least u will have kimimaru and haku and zabuza back as edo tensei char i hope that makes u happy at least

  • positiveemotions

     no no dude u got it wrong i said cc2 listens to fans depending on how many ppl request the same thing like lets say u ask for something and it ends up happing it wont be bc u ask it to happen but bc of other ppl ask the same thing so in a way at the same time they did listen to u, u get wut im saying? so generally speaking they do listen to fans to a certain point because they have time on their hands and it takes time to develop something i am not hating on you if thats what u think dude

  • *Super~Sayian*

    he said after the “meeting” the action parts didn’t happen till “after” So the kage battles will still happen, but then again you may be right, simply cause he never bothered mentioning the kage summit. So the first fight we’ll get is the tobi vs minato flashback then towards to war, So its really 50/50

  • JENEVEUXPAS

    Well, this post answered my questions. I’m a little bummed out that the PTS characters won’t be returning, but what do you expect? positiveemotions is right about it being called Naruto Shippūden Ultimate Ninja Storm “3″ and not “Generations”. The game is a sequel to Storm 2 and not Generations, but either way this game is going to be great! That animation shown in the Kyuubi invasion flashback is BEASTLY!!!

    What i really don’t wanna see are the same combos from previous storm  2 and Generation games! I don’t wanna buy a New game that is a Copy Paste of what i already have(storm2 and Generations)|
     If that happens i will not buy the game, at least on day one! But there is time to change that right? I mean, the game only come out in 2013!

    No pts characters actually is a good thing! The main goal is the Fourth Shinobi War, they need to focus on that! For all that characters wait Until the Generations2 come out!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ray-Smith/651532002 Ray Smith

    My ideas on what should be in the game, longer ougis for offline only cause I know everyone and CC2 said it was not compatible for online even though it would be a great way to get out of someones jutsu. Clash jutsu should make a comeback for storm three, it makes us (well at least me) feel like I am in the anime, and DBZ could do it I know CC2 can do it to and I’m not trying to compare CC2 with them.

    Next environment battle; like tree jumping and fighting at the same time, fighting on walls, jumping to one spot to another like building to building while fighting or just throwing jutsu/ weapons at your opponent, and last but not least effective environment where you can use it to your advantage. Like knocking someone into another area and doing damage to the battle field or setting traps like Naruto hiding a clone underground.

    I would like the RPG from storm 1 back cause the storm 2 was terrible, and I would like for not just Naruto to explore but also other characters who story is around it. Speaking of Characters I would like the following people to be playable.
    1: Kushina with her Red Hot-Blooded Habanero mode.
    2 The gold and silver brother with Kin six tail form (Gin should be support like the peins).
    3: All six paths of pein for be playable or at lest three of them.
    4: Nagato/ Pein should have Banshō Ten’in as their move and Nagato should be young or have 2 awakenings one is his white hair 2nd in his max and 3rd in asura form.
    4: Madara which mostly he will be in it but he should have 3 awakenings. 1 EMS. 2 Rin. 3 complete Susanoo with legs.
    5: All the edo Kage should be playable not support.
    6: Zabuso should have the seven swords to support him and have an ougi with them helping.
    7: Choji in his butterfly form.
    8: Naruto and Sasuke should have the following forms/ awakenings. Initial form with 1-4 tails, Sage mode with his initial form and sixtails, Kyubi charka form and Bujii form. Sasuke should have CM1-2, MS, EMS and Susanoo. 
    9: Haku.
    10: 1st and 2nd Hokage should be playable.
    11: Kabuto’s sage mode

    As for support all other edo ninjas and anyother shinobi that fought in the war.

    I disagree with you.  I think the majority of fans would prefer pts characters to be included.  Yes its CC2′s choice.  Yes I can’t do anything about it.  But your reasoning of the “shippuden” name is completely bogus. 

    ps having those characters in the game doesn’t make me happy at all.  cc2 said that they would make 3 the ultimate naruto game.  doesn’t look like it so far.

  • Sharkskin_kisame

    I think all seven ninja swordsman should be in it ive been useing kisame and zabuza is all i got and they hav so much potentiol their not like the pains where each have one special move of their own especially because they hav seven diifrent swords so completly diffrent moves and im most excited that in the interview they said no part 1 character phew (Rock lee) but they will be adding alot ALot AOLTTT! of new characters

  • positiveemotions

    @RedDragon10 its ok if u dont agree with me i know theres ppl who want pts char back in s3 but no matter how bad u want that to happen but it wont and wen hiroshi said their waiting for the manga to end to make the best naruto game possible he meant to say that about storm 3 there for allot of us already know pts wont be in s3 we will just have to wait for generations 2 for that to happen

  • Sharkskin_kisame

    remember what happend with generations they did the story up until the last episode before the release of the game so we have alot to be excited for

  • Sharkskin_kisame

    all because of kabuto some pts characters will come back

  • Sharkskin_kisame

    i now what you mean they put some new ougis instead of new combos im really hoping to see kisames sword unraped cuz he unraped it before he used sharkskin mode yet they only put sharkskin mode in generations

    I said that cause they didn’t show us that much they only did one move in the anime, and they are not major characters. I for one would like for them all to be playable but it I don’t see that happening. 

  • positiveemotions

    @RedDragon10 yea the sound 4 was a bit disappointing I agree on that but maybe they didn’t include them bc cc2 didnt have time to put them there bc it takes a long time to come up with moves set for characters and uj and jutsus for them as well is something they have to think long and hard for and i am guessing they didnt have time for that bc maybe while they were making generations they were making storm 3

  • http://twitter.com/UchihaGon GoncaloCardoso

    when i say dreaming too much i mean that long ultimate jutsus , storm 1 story mode , destructble battlefield , etc… that would make them need to work 2 or 3x times harder and quicker.. but maybe in playstation 4 they release a Storm 4 with all what you want.

    why are they bringing back the sub bar that was the worst thing about generations take it out it sucks

  • NARUTOxANKO

    Nobody wants to play online, because everyone spamm only like storm too and use ultiamte and jutsu spamming. Play with combos the sub bar is the best idea ever to make the game  fair ! . If you want to get spamm and play nooblike go  play storm 2. I like the campagne and the boss fights but i hate it to play online no combos only run away and jutsu and ultimate spamm but what ever thats my openion.

     SO TRUE

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/743CLGRLZPDVYJZ6S6LKCA2BGY Yumi

    So let me get this straight they are keeping the mechanics froms storm generations meaning the sub bar and dash garbage is back aslo you can now awaken instantly lol which means online will be garbage and full of cheesers and everyone that was in storm 2 and generations will still have the same moveset cept for maybe new moves in their awakening as seen from minato not to mention no part 1 characters meaning sound 4 again are not in it lmao they are milking the series to it’s fullest welp that’s 70 bucks i won’t be wasting i’ll get tales of xillia 2 instead.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/ENRWH6PGHSJ274LYJOEMUZXHDM LiL JJ

    Its a very good thing the sub-bar is back,because it helps stop spmmers,but at the same time I think to add realism they are gonna have to stop the jutsu spamming. Like the new fatigue thing,I think they should add that to jutsu aswell,because in the actual manga/show,the ninja do get tired after using certain amount of chakra.Therefore if they wanna be realistic “to me” that wud be a good idea. Also I think a limit on ultimate wud not be bad,lets say you get two times to try to pull off your ultimate,that wud also help in stopping spammers. And I think this part should at least end off to where they see Madara…”atleast” lol it should.

  • http://twitter.com/BKnockamp AmpBknocka

     There is another reason why people don’t like to play online one of them is connection error, I know they said they fix it but I heard there was some. And people will close the connection because they are sore losers.

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

    you have no idea how the awakening at the beginning of a match will affect the battle so dont make opinionated assumptions, and as much as i like the sound 4 they are a small part of the series (30 ep. if that) so they are not a big deal, same with the part 1 characters (its like having db characters in a dbz game, who the hell would play with kid goku who cant even fly over ssj3 goku), as for subs and dashes that shit was better than the spamming crap they had in storm 2, unless you like to spam of course

  • positiveemotions

    I am glad they brought back the sub meter bc that was the best idea they ever made i for one can beat spammers much easier specially the deidara users and tenten part one is not a problem but glad she wont be in s3 even tho i am beast with her and not in a spamming way either if u ppl dont believe me add me

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/743CLGRLZPDVYJZ6S6LKCA2BGY Yumi

    You gotta be shittin me the sub bar and dash is better then storm 2 because of spam dude i got news for you any game online is gonna have spam and in generations the dash shit just made it worse i can deal with sub bar but it’s pointless when some ass is gonna dash you all match i mean sure you can block but not forever then you have those cheesy ass supports like anko,karin,hidan who take up two of your subs what kind of bullshit is that i hit sub once and it subs twice glitch much storm 1 and 2 will remain the best in my eyes.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ray-Smith/651532002 Ray Smith

    Oh and I forgot to add dodging to my list

  • acryllic_shadow

    The sub bar wasn’t the problem. It was the actually sub system itself in Generations. Restriction against substitutions is a wonderful addition to the battle system because it actually provides the player a chance to perform full combos without fear of getting punished for it defensively by their opponent. However, the system itself was severely broken in Generations.

    In my opinion, the sub system should return to its roots, where you would always sub behind the opponent when attacked, without interruption from oncoming attacks for a split second. This, paired with the sub bar restrictions, chakra dash cancel, chakra air dash, and some sort of “counter attack” mechanic implemented into the battle system, would provide a fair and enjoyable experience for a majority of the players.

    This and no subbing during attacks, and put back subbing during c.dash. It promotes spamming since they can sub at any time with no regard to what they do. 

    Also, strengthen guard. The c.dash spam coupled with supports like Hidan, kimimaro, etc is ridiculous. You can’t defend yourself.

    Give me Zetsu and Pein with different move styles and im good for this game. At least I wasnt a dumbass who wasted money on Generations.

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

    I want Zetsu too but i want him as a whole, not seperate he looks badass. I am worried that they will only give us the shitty white half.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Tony-Colarusso/635250931 Tony Colarusso

     Wont u rather have the White half then no Zetsu at all?

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

    it wasn’t a waste of money -_-

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

    You are judging the game way too soon -_- You don’t know they won’t change up characters combos and you don’t know what other changes they will make. If I remember right the first demo for Generations still had storm 2 mechanics.  You just need to calm down and be patient.

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

    It’s a good opinion.  The people who hate the sub bar and chakra dash cancel are people who refuse to adjust to new games and they are garbage spammers/bad kids. And that’s my opinion :)

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

    I thought I read somewhere that the games follow the manga not the anime. But I could be wrong lol

  • Sharkskin_kisame

    well he said no part 1 chars but alot ALOT! of new characters just who they are the strongest swordsmen in just wouldent be right and i think their wont be anymore support only i think generations was just so CC2 has more time to my storm 3 they best and most awsome naruto yet!

    Don’t you think we will see black Zetsu too? I hope so, he’s awesome. And we’d have 2 Zetsu chars then which imo would be even better ;D

  • http://twitter.com/BoyBerki Berki Boy

    There are said to be 100+ characters right? 
    With all the ninja i counted and excluding the PTS chars, i can imagine just as many.They would have to put many minor chars in, Sound 4 Kurenai Shizune & Anko included! :D

  • Naruto Uzumaki

    then you aren’t a huge fan just a wannabe

  • moongem

    Remember in the Japanese version of Ultimate Ninja 2 (Narutimate Heroes 2) how the villains from the movie was playable? Yeah… I kind of want that… I think that would be pretty swanky. It be a nice treat, especially since this games story mode only covers the war, it’s gonna have a HUGE roster. Having the characters costume’s from “Road to Ninja” would be pretty freakin’ sweat. I’d love playing as happy Sasuke or…Tsunade style Hinata.
     

  • XxBryanXxLee

    We all are really Hoping for these Characters Madara Uchiha, Sage Kabuto, And Rinngan Tobi. < Dream Characters For Storm 3. that will make the game explode. Also Edo Tensei Itachi. And All Edo Pepole. For Ninja War…When You Get a chance plz reveiw This, as we wanted these characters for along time =)

    Also. If You Don't Add Them, Least make them Downloadable Content. Like Sound 4. And any others you can think of…. really looking foward to this game

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/M5S46ZASSKVG7XEDE47HQEBGAI First L

     the ppl who hate the chakra dash cancel have very good reason as it makes the game all about speed making slower characters like Zabusa, Kisame, Choji/etc vulnerable to fast combo characters like lee/Sasuke/etc after they sub the fast characters. They are unable to attack back cause there to slow so they block the chakra dash but still won’t change the fact if Kisame attacks at the same time as lee after the blocked chakra dash. Kisame will get hit 1st and always 1st. the only way for Kisame to hit lee if they attack at the same time is being farther away but its useless as chakra dash canceling puts lee right in Kisame face….Your move.

    I like the sub bar but hate the chakra dash im not saying remove it but make it less spamable just like jutsus/ult and shuriken. I see so many ppl charge up and jutsu, charge up jutsu, charge up…rasengan Barrage. Add limited amount of Shuriken, characters getting fatigued from spamming jutsus and ult is a nice thing as well. If this game is all about strategy than fucking make it about strategy not who has the faster character and cheaper supports.

    he should be in it since he was brought back by kabuto

  • braxton4715

    it sucks tht shes playable in every other game other than this 1

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/2LLPLLKAH443BQ4X5XVWXNOKT4 Big Man

    i really hope tht u can do things in storm 1 like: CLASHES, knocked on the wall in free battle, roaming the village and hopefully go outside the village. and things in storm 2 [which we already have]: boss battles, customize your own team in story mode. things tht i would like new in storm 3 could b like o i dnt no – DESTRUCTIBLE ENVIRONMENTS!!
    tht would be epic. but as i see it its like for storm 3, ur making a cake. and as storm 1, storm 2, and fan suggestions… these are the ingredients to make this cake. so all you gotta do is put in a little of this, a little of tht, and storm 3 (the cake) is DONE!! so hopefully as those things i really hope they take into consideration and get things POPPIN!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Tony-Colarusso/635250931 Tony Colarusso

    ok explain to me y is isnt waste? 

  • So1stic3

    Response to Big Man.   Clashes won’t appear in Storm 3, the reason, lag for online matches. Offline maybe.   Knocking people on the wall will be impractical for online and the animation in storm 1 was way to slow and real people rarely ever got hit with it. Roaming the village could be possible except that the game starts at the 3rd hokage fighting the kyubi and minato fighting masked man and then the game goes straight to the 4th Great Ninja War. It’d be cool to run around the battlefield though. Boss battles will be in the game.   If you want destructible environments, forget it. CC2 would have to make Storm 3 like Dragon Ball Z Ultimate Tenkaichi which had destructible environments everywhere but UT was the worst dragonball z game of all time. Offline though, it’d be a very good possibility.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Tony-Colarusso/635250931 Tony Colarusso

     Wannabe really? I have good explanations to why I waited for storm 3 then buy Generations and a little kid like u wouldnt understand.

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

    @yahoo-M5S46ZASSKVG7XEDE47HQEBGAI:disqus I’m sorry to say it but the chakra dash cancel is a good thing to have in the game.  Kisame and Choji are two of my most used characters on Storm Gen.  If you know the PTS Lee or PTS Neji or whoever is going to chakra dash you after you sub, then block the chakra dash (They will then be stunned for a little bit) and chakra dash them as quick as you can and start your combo.  This game is not broken at all for all the people who complain about the chakra dash and sub bar.  You just need to learn ways around things! There is always something you can do! Try it out and let me know how it goes.  Because it DOES work!

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

    Like I always say.  This game is Storm 3 not Generations 2.  -_-

  • Naruto Uzumaki

    they aren’t adding any part 1 characters in storm 3 and i know for a fact there ain’t going 2 be add-on characters

  • Naruto Uzumaki

    im 17yrsold and plus pain with different move style is immposible

  • Naruto Uzumaki

    thank you

  • Naruto Uzumaki

    same here i’d prefer the black half then the white half

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

     im sorry but why are people goin ape shit for kurenai??? it would be great to have her since there will be more characters but i highly doubt people will use for online and stuff. theyll probz stick to her explosive clone jutsu and put in an ougi similar to ino or something cuz they never gave her much potential. It better to have new and better characters and more stuff rather than adding in a minor character.

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

     or they could make the destroyed enviroment like in budokai 3? when someone hit with massive jutsu the landscape changes rather than having rocks in the middle of a map…. just suggesting =)

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003736116216 Otaku Kun

    i have a question for the the third interview, 
    “you say that there is gonna be customizations on it for costumes and jutsu’s correct? well i was wondering how this will look. will it be like the first were you scroll left and right for the specific jutsu and ultimate jutsu, or will it be in like a box were there will be the names of the jutsus and ultimate jutsus. and the costumes. will everyone get a costume or just specific charcters. other than the fatigue tag, what othe ninja tools will be in the new game for customizations. and regarding the info cards and titles. will it be the same like generations. or will we be able to see some new features to it.”

    -if you do end up asking these questions. or even a fraction of them, then thank you. i really aprecciate it.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003736116216 Otaku Kun

    do you think that like the first storm, that for some of the characters in awakening they will still be able to use ultimate jutsu. except with the same amount of damage given no boost for it.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003736116216 Otaku Kun

    if you think about it they arnt gonna be bringing them back they are gonna be continueing to use them. like say Naruto(4 tail), or sakura. they arnt gonna take them out. well they can take danzo out. i hated fighting with and against a handicap

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000171890254 Pierre Ketola

    it would be awesome if they added so u could create your own ninja train him/her up and choose which village you would like to live in like the hidden leaf hidden sand… and learn new jutsus and improve them. A little story mode for your character wouldn’t be to much either. i know i’m asking to much but i really hope CC2 will think about it:)

    The PTS characters revealed are just 6 of the leaf, and one of the sand. (Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, Hinata, Neji, Lee, and Gaara) Six popular characters from the PTS. Maybe there’s some kinda use. At this point, it’s barely 2 weeks until the game is released. No change can be made and it’s only 6 out of 81 playable characters(excluding the support obviously). Personally, I’d rather have other chars like Anko, Kurenai, Shizune, etc. But we have to be okay with it since it won’t be changed. Compared to all the new released chars that will be in the game, no care here if they have the PTS lol
