    Why does A still have both hands?

  • NSOP

     Same reason Future Gohan still had both arms in all games.

    saiyanisland, are you like my underwear? because i can’t last a day without you.

  • AdrianH20

    not all in dbz budokai tentshe..etc he had one of his arms but the arm think would have to make him change his moveset but there not going to do that

  • *Super~Sayian*

    Two Wrongs don’t make a right 

  • kisame007

    does this mean the seven swordsmen are playable in free battle

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

    only a few are interesting with the seven swordsmen

  • unleashrage

    so they don’t have to change his move set

    FYI : You can chose to fight 6 swordsmen in hack ‘n slash mode (Zabuza is the last one, a boss battle) OR in 2 VS 2 in regular battle mode. It means that Swordsmen have a full gameplay and will be playable. No doubt !

    I said that already many times, but I will say it again – they didn’t even bothered to improve graphics, change characters’ animations (especially jutsus’ animations like Rasengan) and all what they added is a special action with support characters, 1 special jutsu in Awakening Mode, 1 new type of Awakening Mode, (literally) small einvorment destruction (which exists from years in most of the 2.5D fighting games) and totally “WTF” ring out… 1 word CC2 – LAME! 

    Indeed, there are fighting games which sequels aren’t too distinctive from them, but there is a reason why they’re like that – they are Classics, that’s why their combat mechanics cannot be changed (example: Soul Calibur series or Tekken). However games based on Manga/Anime should be more and more improved with every sequel to be more and more like Manga/Anime which they are based on. CC2 ofc is following the “Classics way” which you’ll gonna have enough sooner or later unless you are some Naruto freak which will buy everything which has written “Naruto” on it. 

    I understand ppl who want to buy it for Story Mode, but don’t be a freak and don’t buy it for full price, cuz this game doesn’t deserve that.

     you need to keep your comment to yourself. then ring out in truth is not a welcome addition but everything is perfect and not only a first buy but a pre order Naruto Ultimate Storm 3 all the way

  • XxDecimoxX10

    Once I see something diffrent from the last Hack’N'Slash game they made, then I’ll be more than sold on that part. Why don’t they go the same way as Naruto Shipuden SD:Powerful Shippuden character wise.
    You kno how in that game Naruto can switch from Regular–>Sage Mode–>Regular–>KCM
    Or Killer Bee could switch from Regular–>Version 1–>Version 2–>Bijuu Mode.

    That would an amazing addition, and it would be true to the manga/anime. And it would definetly keep me in the Hack’N'Slash mode.

    You my friend, just made me laugh. It’s people like you Keston Felix, that give us an ever deteriorating game series. Have fun spending your $60 on this and praising it, then ending up getting spammed till your last rage. I’ll go save mine for a much more deserving game. 

  • XxDecimoxX10

    The arm didn’t even do anything, it was just… there. Future Gohan would still fight as though he had one arm.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/GHVB26TGFU2KIPE6JZ4YDPTYK4 Keston Felix

     do that keep your $60 in your pocket and stop bitching here cause this site are made for fans of the game series and for positive feedback to help the game not hate.i never said that the ring out is a plus i agree with that it is crap and should be taken out or an option to turn on and off. what we want is a Stage to Stage Destruction and a demo. And Cloud S SUCK IT Keep your money and go buy a game that suits you like Barbie And Kens Day Out

  • RedDragon10

    Wait what?  Everything is perfect?  It’s a first buy and a pre order?  My friend, you may be the reason why we’re not getting any good or even reasonable updates in this series.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/FFCRVIFR3JTGAMDA3AQI3XQQ3E Cloud S

    See, you can’t even use grammar correctly. Please, go play some other games, then come back riding CC2′s dick, it will be nice and warm, awaiting you with nothing new. Or at least decent, perhaps. And one more thing…..stop referring to Storm fans as “We”. You are not the commander, and you would be surprised to know how many people disagree with your disgusting failure of a “logic”.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/GHVB26TGFU2KIPE6JZ4YDPTYK4 Keston Felix

     LOL LOL LOL

  • narutonatsu

    i hope they bring more amazing news, the games not showing that much amazing improvements with free battle but story mode is amazing but CC2 what about multiplier? … doesn’t look that amazing improvements like unleast add some new combo’s

  • icouldntthinkofagoodname

    All i want is the option to change the number of health bars in the settings.(in free battle)

    I dont really mind anything else.

  • ALMIGHTY Juicemon E. Genesis

    Stop being a prik and let him say what he has to say!  He was only stating his opinion on the topic.

  • *Super~Sayian*

    Faith in humanity has been restored 

  • wowandwow

    till the end people will still feel the need to support every little thing even when there in denial. yes naruto strom series  after storm 2 does not deserve 60 buck. it should cost 30 for copy and paste. it will deserve it when naruto storm becomes like accel 1 2 3 

  • david gomez

    I don’t understand why you guys are so combative with each other. > .>
    If you don’t like it, then cool, you don’t need to FIGHT about it. If anything, your complaints and anger are better vented to CC2 on their social media pages, so that shit can actually get done. Come on people. GET REAL.

    c:
    And as for the game.. I’m actually really excited. Haha. If nothing else it’ll be fun to play locally (or online) with people I can trust not to be cheap. ;o

    In reply to ALMIGHTY Juicemon E. Genesis, I am not targeting my comments at the educated long paragraph dude, I’m on his side. Sadly I have no idea how to even work with these since the reply button is flying everywhere.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/FFCRVIFR3JTGAMDA3AQI3XQQ3E Cloud S

    It’s more of when one person has an opinion, some decides to have a problem with it in a very rude way of saying “keep it to yourself.” etc. So therefore, you are treated how you treat others. I must say, though. Out of all communities, Naruto’s is quite…eh…rage-filled. Rightfully so, though. Those spammers can REALLY bite you where it hurts. :) Let’s just hope that 80% left is 80% worth it. Also, am I the only one noticing CC2 favoriting a good amount of character creation things lately on their twitter? Ah, well goodnight.

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

    WTF is this crap? CC2 has to be the only company that can have new features and announcements make a game look WORSE. At least the devs of Ultimate Tenkaichi kept most of it to themselves, cause they knew it was a tremendous piece of crap. But CC2 is dilusional. I think they’ve gone crazy with the success of the series.

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

    They’ve completely gone down hill. From a completely new series in Storm 1, to barely any recycled content and thinning back on unnecessary gimmicks in storm 2 (though still broken as heck), to recycle galore filled Generations, and now recycle hell with terrible, terrible new additions. And guess what… IT’S STILL BROKEN.

    I give up… -_-

    FINAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=676225630 Δημήτριος Γλύκας

    I wanna see new scan with new character or new trailer(no cutscenes).

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    But he can only use one arm, remember in the history of trunks he lost one of his arms while fighting Android 17 & 18.

  • Enmanuel Castaneda

    this game is awesome im pretty sure that most of the information right now will be about between the fight of ginkaku and kinkaku all the way to the fight tsu and rai vs naru and killer bee. and then from there to the itachi fight and then from itachi fight to madara

  • Enmanuel Castaneda

    THERE SHOULD BE A LOT OF NEW CHARACTERS AND IF THIS GAME ENDS AT THE NARUTO AND RAIKAGE FIGHT OR ITACHI FIGHT THEN IT WILL BE A PIECE OF C35P
    IS AWESOME BUT IT SHOULD END AT LEAST ON THE MADARA APPEREANCE OR JINCHURIKI FIGHT THERE ARE ABOUT 3 OR 4 1/2 MONTHS LEFT AND IN THIS NOVEMBER MONTH THERE IS ONLY FILLERS THAT WILL PRETTY MUCH GET TO DECEMBER. SO THEY BETTER NOT FINISH THIS GAME IN AN EPISODE THAT IS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO THE APPEREANCE OF MADARA OR THE JINCHURIKIS 

  • Enmanuel Castaneda

    BY THE WAY WHY DO THEY NEED TO WAIT FOR THE ANIME SO THEY CAN MAKE THE GAME. CANT THEY USE THEIR IMAGINATION OF THE COLORS AND THEN THE ANIME CREATORS COPY FROM THE GAME AND PUT THE COLORS. GOSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1111111111111111111111111111111111111

  • Enmanuel Castaneda

    IN STORM 2 THEY REACHED FROM EPISODE ONE OF SHIPPUDEN WHEN NARUTO COMES BACK TO THE PAIN FIGHT AND THATS LIKE 150 OR 60 OF SOMETHING OF EPISODES WHY NOT STORM 3 REACH THAT MUCH UP TO MADARA DAMMIT

  • RedDragon10

     WHY ARE WE YELLING!!!!!!

  • Hiroshi Matsumoto

    Amazon UK Says The Game Will Be Released On March 3rd
    Amazon US Says The Game Will Be Released On May 31st O.o I Don’t Know Whether This Shizz Is Set In Stone Or Not, Normally It Isn’t, Right? O.o 

  • http://www.facebook.com/michael.ozua Michael Ozua

    I think its because they wouldn’t want to spoil tobi’s identity to anime-only watchers

  • Perfect Susano’o

    They have fixed the scratch on tobi’s mask. 

  • Yonbi4tails

    It’s time to speak up Storm Community. This Ringout feature is a nightmare and as a community we need to let CC2 know how we feel. Sure, we can bash CC2 all we want on here, but the best way to get our point across is by sending them some critical feedback via twitter @cc2information:twitter or the suggestions website. And let’s try NOT to be so negative!! After all, they are the ones creating this game for us. Instead we will let them know how we feel (calmly) and offer some helpful suggestions as to how they can improve this ringout so that it’s not so cheap. If enough people can reach out to cc2 then they will have to respond with some type of alternative.

  • Nagato Juonys

     LOL i watch anime i already know who tobi is :D

  • Guest

    IF that’s true, then CC2 have truly abandoned us americans 

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/YNTJHNTHQQPHQ4LDQJU7RSEYRA SamK

    OMG! I’m about ready to puke I’m so sick of them showing us the swordsmen. Just confirm them or not, don’t show us a hundred pictures of the same people. Move on to some more characters like Ginkaku and Kinkaku or the Jinchuriki…just…stop…with the swordsmen…

  • Yonbi4tails

    EDIT: BIG NEWS!! Check out NSUNStormCommunity youtube channel, they have created a petition to get rid of the ringout feature and/or change it since many fans dont like it. They work with namcobandai and need 130+ signatures with feedback to make the announcement!!!
    The link to petition >> http : // www . change . org /fr/p%C3%A9titions/signer-contre-le-ring-out # share just unspace to go to link.

  • Hiroshi Matsumoto

     I’m Not Even American And I Think That’s Kind Of Unfair O.o

  • InSaNeHaX

    HUZAAA!!!!

  • Guest

    that’s stupid, why should we suffer cause they wanted to remain ignorant of future events

  • Deidara19

    (lol being optimistic here) But maybe people in America may have added features/ more content at that later launch date while the UK will have to get everything through DLC, having an earlier launch date. (This does make sense in a way)

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002664579568 Christian Ferguson

    PLEASE for the sake of naruto fans please don’t add this ring out feature.
    Ex: players will spam rasengan or other moves just to knock you out the ring, and that will be a pain in the ass for other players. 

  • fabricej

    I tried to go on there and sign the petition but the link doesn’t seem to be working. Can you confirm so I know if the problem is from my end ?

  • fabricej

    Agreed on all points. Keep spreading the word and hopefully we get this thing removed.

  • s.u

    come on if they can give information on the war then the can already tell everbody if madaras in

  • s.u

    please tell me if sasuke eternal sharingan in the naruto game

  • s.u

    whats wrong with you they fanaly do something new and you say take of its like saying give up on the game because thats probably the firsting that they where working on

  • s.u

    realy are u kidding me :/

  • Yonbi4tails

    yes just make sure to unspace first, and if there is a “?” before the http part then make sure you remove it. Otherwise you may have to go directly to the nsunstormcommunity youtube channel find the petition against ringout vid and click the link.

  • fabricej

    Look I’m all for innovation and i will be buying this game, however this mode makes no sense for a naruto game. 
    Can you imagine the amount of spamming of jutsus like rasengan thats going to be happening during these matches ? It won’t even be about skill anymore, just who can push the other out. 

    There is a plethora of other features that CC2 can work on instead; 1 the stage destruction is a welcome addition but its weak at best. 2 how about putting in stage transitions between matches ? 3 we all obviously want jutsu clashes, so how about working on it to deliver and make it work ?.

    Why waste time and ressources on this dumb feature when you have so much that you can add ? I love this series but they have a long way to go before the fighting REALLY feels like the manga/anime. This is my opinion and that of many others so im going to try and get this shit taken out. There isnt much hope however as CC2 does not listen to their fans.

  • Bryan Alexis Mejia Diaz

    send a message to cc2 u can from twitter! :P spread the word!

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

    the ring out feature is not that bad, its something new and adds an actual challenge to playing,you guys act as if every fucking person is a spammer but in reality you guys are just being un pleasable~

  • Deva_Pain_Path

    I really am looking forward the new hack and slash in this series….on impact it was amazing already…but with the 1vs1 where they lacked in impact…this will make the game even better

  • Hiroshi Matsumoto

     (You Didn’t Need To Put This LOOL I Wouldn’t Have Raged xDD)
    Maybe O.o That’d Be Pretty Cool For You Guys, Since We Do Get That Shit Ass Limited Edition LOOL (Indeed It Does xDD)

  • 202jkdc

    If they put Madara in, what y’all think his jutsu should be?
    I think his jutsu would probably be that wide fireball flame( I don’t know the exact name) tilt would be wood release and UJ be double meteor and of course Susano for awakening.

    Wouldn’t it be tight if everybody had two awakening though one instant and another charged . Like a mini one and a main one. He mini one could be the rinnegan or him uncoving his chest to reveal the first hokage face.

  • beslic.josip

    I really want zetsu playble :)

  • Narutoking

    is hack and slash a 2 player mode
