The Naruto Shippuden anime has been on a streak of fillers since October. The current arc, titled Power has been airing since November. Due to the holidays, Naruto Shippuden will be seeing a few breaks, extending the filler arc until January 2013. After that, Saiyan Island is hopeful canon episodes will return as the Naruto manga is 68 chapters ahead of the anime, but no official word has been released at this time.

    i stop watching naruto anime since sasuke vs itachi fight, i just saw it again when gai fought kisame with hirudora, but then i was boring and i made up my mind to watch these fillers, but i didnt really understand them,
    1.- kabuto with wavy/curly hair and without snake form
    2.- hidan edo tensei, since when?
    3.- naruto and sakura out of the war?
    4.- yamato alive, and fighting? < i know we dont know yet if he is aive or if he is dead.

    WE WANT CANNON!!!

  • ALMIGHTY Juicemon E. Genesis

    This filler arc is just one completely out of left field and has nothing to do with the canon manga.  That’s why it makes no sense.  It’s just purely for entertainment.

  • ichigokun

    Your lucky you can do that. I have to watch every episode every week as soon as it comes on. I wake up early to watch Naruto before going to class. lol, even when I have tests the same day.

  • ichigokun

    This filler arc “Power” is to celebrate 500 episodes of Naruto anime. lol sounds weird, right? To me, a celebration would have been a marathon of new canon episodes!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1619689233 Diego Zavaleta

    I don’t understand your complains. If you think about it chikara is a good filler (except for all episode 2, but the kick in the nuts is another story) and the anime will take a two weeks rest, so Naruto Shippuden its okay with the transmision of their episodes.

     mn this sucks balls i thought it will end on december but its christm,as week and start of january it will be canon but man oh well

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/QAQN42S2FAM74B7M3BOUXM6SSE Donald Barnett

    I dont mind these fillers. I think we need to savor all these episodes cuz we are all gonna miss naruto when it ends so enjoy every episode of it.

  • RedDragon10

    This is the main reason why I only read the manga nowadays.

  • http://twitter.com/BrandonLarios Brandon Lee

    it happens the same to me but with the manga, i told to myself,’im going to watch narutos anime again when it finally ends’ but im still reading the manga

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    I know, its just getting annoying.

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

    Storm 3 is really sinking to new low levels, and here I thought that wasn’t physically possible. We’ll be lucky if we get Nagato, let alone Madara, at this rate ( and i actually REALLY believed characters wouldn’t be an issue. I’m not so sure anymore.)

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    imo they should’ve release it on October 25th 2013, to add more features and longer story mode and aroubd 150 characters, but it will still be worth buying, for the return of the free roam and boss battle mode which made Storm 2 a PURE MASTERPIECE.

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Yep, true, the only anime which has AWESOME fillers is DBZ without a doubt, Pikkon vs Goku BEST FILLER EPISODE XD

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

    That was a good filler episode, gotta say. Even though the filler portions of fights were great, the random filler (like before the saiyans arrived) were not as good.

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

    Nope. I won’t. It should have ended a while ago. Now they are just milking it and the plot, characters, etc. have become very stale.

  • http://twitter.com/MurryEggplant MurryEggplant

    Remember in one of the storm 3 trailer’s when Kabuto brings up his edo’s and we see the edo kage? don’t worrie guy’s we will at least get to edo madara’s reviel although how much we will see of him I am unsure.

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

    Yep. Well, technically the final cast was decided probably months ago, but finishing touches will probably be done by the end of February (tweaking, testing, etc.). Everything major is actually done a couple of months ahead of time.

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

    Storm 3 is blowing itself away… and not in a good way.

  • narutopiece1

    According to Kishimoto sensei the manga will end in 1.5 to 2 years and its already been almost half a year since he said that, and judging by how far ahead the manga is from the anime, i think Studio Pierrot plans to end anime almost at the same time after the manga finshes which is either the end of 2013 or around the begining of 2014. In other word “there won’t be anymore fillers after january 10″. I hope :)

  • falcom64

    personaly i don’t really care this is the best filler i have ever seen it looks like it was taken strait from a movie not like the bunch of useless fillers they gave before starting the war. PS the manga is way ahead and i find it more interesting.

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

    Let’s have a celebration with something fake that takes away from an upcoming game! Yay!!

    >_<

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

    All I care about is what it does to Storm 3. I barely watch the anime (at least not until I can sit down and watch a marathon of CANON episodes).

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

    Storm 3 man, STORM 3!!

  • Matsu96

    It’s CC2 fault. Why do they have to release Storm 3 so fast. They said, they will wait until the manga ends or sth. like that so they can make “a big Storm 3 game”. I would prefer to wait a bit more and have Madara, EdoJinchuu, Obito etc. instead of the shit, they’ve done now.

  • http://twitter.com/Keviouk KuroPansa

    Oh my god, when I read the title, I thought there would be other fillers until the end of January, now it’s just one episode of Chikara (which is very good) delayed because of winter break. DON’T SCARE US LIKE THAT SAIYANISLAND !

  • deav0084

    Storm 3 follows the manga too… they’ve said this numerous times in interviews so theres no way it could be a mistranslation

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Thats actually true, but I actually enjoyed it.

  • Aled James

    If Storm 3 is released at the very end of march then the anime will just about see the arrival of Madara. A perfect cliff hanger leading into Storm 4 would be either Madara getting out of the Coffin or the 5 Kage arriving on the battlefield. 

  • Aled James

    If you read the manga you should know how long we have left. Once canon starts on the 17th of January, we have roughly 8-9 weeks before the launch of storm 3. We have 16 chapters to go before Madara arrives, and there’s roughly One and a half or Two chapters in an episode, but that depends on filler, if its an all battle chapter that should last a few minutes in an episode. So Madara is risky. However Nagato and itachi will be in the game. They arrive in 4 chapters. So the fight between Naruto, Bee, itachi and nagato will be in the game guaranteed. I remember when they aired the part of Nagato reviving everyone, i think it was a few days later Storm 2 was released. So we’re in luck!

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

    They’ve only said anything about the manga once, and that was a mistranslation.

    Give me search terms or it never happened (cause SI certainly didn’t report it).

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

    It’s Namco Bandai. CC2 has no control over the release date, the publisher does.

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

    True. So I’ll still say Nagato is pretty much guaranteed. However, if there is ANY more filler Madara is looking grim.

  • timanel1

    ARE U FUKING KIDDING ME ?

  • ichigokun

    Your right, it’s anime only .

  • ichigokun

    The game follows the manga IF it’s been in the anime. In other words canon episodes only. That’s what CC2 means when they say the game follows the manga. I.e. there won’t be any filler characters

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

    I’m taking back my recent hatred of CC2. Even though I think they’ve made some questionable gameplay choices, it seems clear now they have had their hands tied pretty hard behind their backs. Namco Bandai decides the release date and where the content will come from, and T.V. Tokyo decides the anime schedule. They have no say on where the game will end nor when they are going to develop it. Your boss says work, you work.

    I think this may be why Matsuyama seemed so unenthusiastic in his interviews (very not like him). He sees the issues here and that fans might get disappointed by these setbacks. So Matsuyama, keep doing what you do. But please, please, never use something like ring outs again. :(

  • *Super~Sayian*

    fffffFUK man ,the HELL 

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

    ^This.

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

    Assuming there is no more filler passed January 10th.

  • narutopiece1

    If the game is released around the end of March, then we will get to see Madara Uchiha as a boss and playable or if the game follows the manga rather than the anime, then we might get to see even more boss battles. we’ll just have to wait and see.

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

    It does not follow the manga, ugh. It follows the manga as far as characters, meaning no filler characters. THAT is what they meant when the mistranslated interview was re-translated.

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

    Lol, I’m not sure mine get any lower now. 

  • tsukuyomiCheed

    Ah great these fillers are boring sorry but they are but im gunna continue watching 

  • Sharnerius1

    NOOOOOOO!!!! Well this sucks.I haven’t watched the anime in a long time,and this is why.It’s crap.I’ll just stick to the manga.I’ve already accepted the fact that Storm 3 will only cover 1 and a half arcs.Story will most likely be short,characters will be limited.My hype for the game has lowered more.

  • Saheel Uchiha

    Thats why most of them hate anime! 

  • AdrianH20

    I SEE…. DOWNLOADABLE CONTENT COMING SOON TO Naruto Storm 3 

  • Al D.

    I honestly think Storm 3′s release date will be pushed back at this point; March seems pretty bold if they want a decently-lengthed story mode…

  • uchihalord1994

    January ha ? :P P hmm so that leaves only one month work for the game to catch up ??? man i have a bad feeling about this lol 

  • uchihalord1994

    thats what i keep hoping for buddy :/ 

  • *Super~Sayian*

    Think about it, each month is only like 6 episodes, each episode is extended with little fillers in between, naruto hasn’t even faced nagato and itachi yet, let alone the 3rd raikage. and don’t even get me started on gaara vs mizukage, tsukikage and  4th kazekage. IF were lucky, and I mean real LUCKY, we’ll barely make it to madara being summoned. and even that is not enough proof that he’ll be in the game, for all we know the game release day could be march 13th again, meaning those 24 episodes ( 6 per month ) could be reduced to 14 episodes. we might not even get to conclusion of the kage fights, let alone madara’s part 

  • Sam Armistead

    I’m really hoping CC2 will just bite the bullet and go ahead of the anime for once, tbh I can safely bet that the majority of the fandom read the manga anyway and for those that don’t they will just know what happens next, not much of a spoiler when it’s going to happen anyway.

  • Vasto_Lord_Dizzy

    i think its funny how ppl really think the game would of gone to itachi and kabuto if there was no fillers,ha ha ha IDIOTS!

  • ShisuiUchiha88

    I don’t understand why they keep doing this to us …

  • RedDragon10

    I highly doubt that.  I’m willing to guarantee that they’re will be multiple strings of filler episodes from then on to the end of the manga.

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

    umm… it will. it’s 4 chapters away, which is 2-3 episodes max.

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

    you sound so desperate… i’m not surprised though. i can’t believe all the lack of and bad news coming our way with storm 3.

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

    well, they did confirm it. so there’s some hope.

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

    it’s so weird that this time around, after storm 2 was news every week, anime was moving nicely, even Gen had info every two weeks or so, that they have decided to keep news to a minimum and introduce filler so close to release.

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

    Shoot me for saying this, but I’m happy. It doesn’t affect Storm 3, this has already been stated, and Chikara has a good pack of animators and storyline to keep me interested. 

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

    It has been stated NUMEROUS times. Anime will not affect this game, not the storyline pace at least. Please pass this on, no one is understanding this even though they keep saying it.

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

    They are going ahead of the anime, this has been stated many times.

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

    But on the fact that CC2 delivers info horribly, and does not give time frames, yeah, this time around they have sucked terrifically bad.

  • unleashrage

    I know right it should have ended. What happened with Sakura’s development after her fight with Sasori?..oh yeah it stopped while Naruto and Sasuke continued to grow.

  • http://twitter.com/dayderaa daydera

    O_o.Probably neither Madara nor bijuu Naruto and Jinchuuriki , not will in Storm 3.

  • unleashrage

    This is why i stopped watching the anime and will continue not to watch it until the canon is at least 10 episodes in.

  • Brandon Gray

    Where did you read that lovely news? :3 

  • Brandon Gray

    Fack, the only good thing about this filler is when Sakura got pawnched. Why not just make episodes 294 and 295 a double and start canon in January. Why be so difficult?!

  • XxDecimoxX10

    And depending on the ending to Naruto Shippuden, they might just make +100 filler episodes.
    You kno just like they did w/ kid Naruto

  • Shogunreaper

     Don’t forget that theres a few more weeks choped off since they have to send it in to get the disks made ahead of time, so i’d say by the middleend of febuary is when they’ll stop.

  • XxDecimoxX10

    Is DLC episodes an option? Or am I just thinking about it too much.
    Hoping they don’t make a Storm 4 (which will definetly happen)

  • Idy Inyang

    Why don’t they make the fillers on the rookies’ battles considering Kishimoto barely gave them any attention since the war.

  • JENEVEUXPAS

    How did we not see this coming? I had a feeling the fillers would leak into January, but I’m not aggravated by it though because CC2 already said that NUNS3 was not going to be bound to the progression of the anime. Also, the Power filler arc is okay in my opinion so far. I didn’t expect much out of it, but after seeing the last episode I’m pretty interested.

  • MattUK92

    I am at a loss for words. The anime company is taking the piss. They need slapping into shape. They’re a disgrace.

  • MattUK92

    The Animations terrible!

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

    Oh my Gosh… it IS bound to the anime. The interview, the only interview, that mentioned the manga was MISTRANSLATED. What Matsuyama said was that they were going to follow the manga as far as CHARACTERS. It was a question about filler characters, which he denied would be in the game because they wanted to focus on characters that appeared in the manga.

    Everyone, get your facts straight, please.

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

    @XxDecimoxX10:disqus They have actually confirmed DLC. What kind of DLC remains to be announced (although the Naruto Goku costume is an exclusive DLC for those who preorder the game).

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

    Bijuu Naruto I’m afraid is tremendously slim. But Madara still has a decent chance (8 weeks to release date after Jan 10, 16 chapters till Madara, 2 chapters per episode). So assuming there are NO more fillers, Madara still could be in. Plus, they have before put in characters that were not in the anime until a few episodes down the road (2-3 weeks after release).

  • *Super~Sayian*

    This might sound crazy, but I think narusasu had over growned, to much development to the point I can’t stand them lol

  • http://sendoclanpsn.webs.com/ Hason Peart

     You could have corrected him nicely .-. That was a stupid me to be all rushy with negativity. if YOU knew the real fact, you could have just said it. But anyways, thanks for the clarity.

  • Jensen Goode

    WTF is Break NO Jutsu, im okay with power saga but anything else is just bullshit

  • http://www.facebook.com/rene.davidovac René Davidoschnaps

    No, because some idiot here in the section repeats that the Anime doesn´t affect NS3´s plot when it clearly does. Also somebody who wants to post something like this should inform himself better, instead of just shouting out some false info.

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

    well i better skip this next one then,,,, until the price goes down unless i can’t resist lol =(

  • unleashrage

    This is in response to the character development. I know they have had too much development, especially sasuke in my opinion, but its funny that naruto can only do shadow clones and rasengan based jutsu considering how long the manga has been going. 

  • http://twitter.com/dayderaa daydera

    I would not be surprised if, after the filler (power), we will have 1 more filler for the holidays.

  • DarkChidori93

    The breaks are understandable in my opinion, because it is christmas/new year time and people are on holiday ect…However i think they should have capped the filler off on the 20th of december and began a fresh with cannon in the new year.

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

    No, not after I’ve corrected it 3 times already. If you want to make bold statements without taking the time to do your research, then you reap what you sow. 

    It isn’t fair to the people who read it, get their hopes up, only to have them trampled upon when they realize it’s false.What about those people? Do they not deserve some clarity? Do they not deserve this person NOT getting their hopes up when he is providing false information?

    They deserve to not be deceived, whether intentional or not.This person should have taken the time to make sure he is correct before messing with everyone’s hopes.

    …and no problem. ^_^

  • shatti

    ARE THEY FUCKING KIDDING ME???!!! -_-

  • shatti

    Just wanted to ask you guys how you think Naruto will end? I personnaly think that Sasuke will get to know the entire truth from the people he is going to meet( probably his mom and dad) and then join Naruto to fight Madara and Obito. Then either Madara or Obito kills Sasuke and Naruto says: “Now i will never be able to keep my promise and save you!” but then Sasuke says: “Naruto, you have already saved me…” and then dies on the battlefield. After that they will defeat Obito somehow and then Kakashi will walk up to the dying Obito and tell him his reason for killing Rin and Obito will die knowing that Kakashi was always his friend and regains his faith in the world and entrusts Naruto to “save this world” before he dies. Then they will SOMEHOW defeat Madara and the war will be over. Then Naruto will unite all the nations( like the tsuchikage said ) and then Naruto will become the first    SUPERKAGE!!!!

  • Alex Randomman

    Say good-bye to an epic Storm 3 story mode.

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

    Here is my synopses. There are 11 more weeks after January 10 till the last Thursday in March. Assuming that there will be at least 1 episode every Thursday until the last Thursday in March covering at least 3 chapters (meaning very minimal filler parts mingled in with the canon episodes), we can conclude the anime will be right around chapter 578 (we are  on chapter 545 in the anime, add 11 (amount of thursdays left) + 3 (chapters covered in episode) = 33 (chapters covered in anime) + 545 = 578. As some of you can probably tell this estimation is rounded upward. Every episode probably wont cover 3 chapters, many may cover 2, some may even cover 4. There also may be double episodes in one week. If we consider past events concerning chapter per episode and the fact the game will come out around march time, i believe its safe to conclude that the story mode for storm 3 will end right around chapter 573 after naruto defeated the tailed beasts and sasuke emerges from his cave. Of course they may push the envelope and add the sasuke & itachi vs kabuto fight, but it will definitely go no further than that, which means we get to fight with madara and tobi :) . If you guys felt i messed up in my estimated calculation or was just completely way out in left field and would like to add anything, please do. would like to here you guy’s thoughts.

  • Sharnerius1

    Lol the anime does not use 3 chapters for an episode let alone 4.They don’t even use a full 2 all the time

  • http://twitter.com/A_Gill27 Alex Gill

    Wow you must be kidding me, first we’re getting barely any Storm 3 info, and now we have to contend with 4 more episodes of filler? Great, just great.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002886867417 David Han

    Now I’m deciding whether or not I should just wait for Generations 2 to come out or not since the story is most likely going to be shit.

  • narutobleachop

    3 more episodes… one of those episodes have aired. but your right, we barely have anything for Storm 3. I am worried, real worried!

  • narutobleachop

    I think that’s what they are doing. Making it so we all have to buy Generations 2. I’d say if you can wait for it, then wait for it, but I’ve already pre-ordered Storm 3, lol, so no matter what happens I’m getting it.

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

    There won’t be a Generations 2. Where this rumor came from i have no idea.

    @shatti nah man this nigguh talkin negative every time news come up and im tired of his ignorant bullshiit and everyone is too they didnt come here to see a butthurt retard biitching about every news that comes out he can take his crying a$$ to Canada of all i care

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VVCK6ASWYW67C6DIO3OUCY3IME Felipe

    Calm down dude… i also don’t agree with Alex Marrero sometimes, but calling him a “nigga”  is just a pointless racist offense. It’s not giving you any credibility.

  • http://twitter.com/Cybore8 Art

    It will certainly pretty lame for a storm game if they strictly follow the anime for as to how much the game will cover. At the very least I am expecting Naruto & Bee vs Tobi and Jins.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VVCK6ASWYW67C6DIO3OUCY3IME Felipe

    I wonder how Storm 3 is going to have the “longest story mode of the franchise until now” and “more Boss Battles than Storm 2″ (Hiroshi’s words) if THIS is happening…this is getting very confusing CC2, VERY CONFUSING…

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

    What? How was that comment in any way, shape, or form negative? It is fact: There has not been any incling that there will EVER be a Generations 2. Until there is, stop talking about like it is undeniable fact.

    You can’t handle the truth, tough. But no one is insulting anyone with this comment but you.

  • Deno13

    CC2 gonna handle this somehow i mean think Matsuyama would want the game to end at a climax(turning point) and also Kakashi had a jutsu called Raiden which isnt used until Naruto vs 6 Jins so we can guess that the game might end where Naruto is acting cocky and tells Tobi(Obito) that he knows all 9 Bijuu names too bad about EMS Sasuke and Itachi vs DSM Kabuto it probablt might be a Fragment just like Naruto Storm 2

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

    Lol, you’re attacking me for no reason other then to get attention.

    I never knew the “truth” was now negativity. I guess I’ll just lie from now on, cause what I mostly do is just correct those who are misinformed, in a perfectly fine and acceptable manor. If you can’t handle that I know what I’m talking about, then sorry.

    Almost every comment on here is negative. I even wrote a comment saying my hate for CC2 has reversed, guess you neglected to read that one huh? It’s not CC2′s fault, it’s Namco Bandai’s and T.V. Tokyo for tying their hands behind their backs.

    So before you go assuming “nigguh” read everything I write, not just what conveniences you.

    And no, i get more positive feedback then negative. The negative is always the same 2-3 people who can’t accept fact or probability. Read all my feedbacks “brah” and you’d know that.

    S…M…H

    Indeed. 

    But seriously, I’m not trying to make enemies here. I’m just trying to stay informed and keep others just as informed as well. I’m not even upset at CC2 anymore. This filler crap has made me realize how much Namco Bandai and T.V. Tokyo have tied CC2s hands behind their back.

    I really do apologize if I upset anyone. But most of my comments (not all, I admit) are just correcting statements like “it will go by the manga” when the interview was just a mistranslation, so that is not correct.

  • Deno13

    Mothafuucka almost every one of your posts are negative all you do is talk shiit all dat and it is not Namco’s fault it is no ones fault u dont even know Cyberconnect’s plans for the game and yet u talk shiit all day whem the game comes out and the story ends at Naruto and Tobi headbutt feel free to come to this site and talk shiit but for know SHUT YO DUMBASS UP!!!!!

    I really don’t care about this game going far story-wise, and i hope the fillers continue just like they have been these past weeks. I mean, games will come and go (i was so hyped for storm 2, wanting it to go up to whatever episode and now i never touch it) and they will continue making games until the end of the series or even beyond if they follow dbz standards. But once the anime is done, Naruto is over. so thank your stars and don’t take such things for granted just because of a game, instead wish for more episodes and movies to keep it alive.

    Guys i’m sure cc2 had the stroy  mode for the game fully panned out long ago they are not walking blind folded into this game the anime has little influence now the stroy  modes ending was choosen long ago. the lack of info well storm 2 had more to work with more anime epsidoes same can be said of generations this covers roughly 3 arcs so not much ( not to mention all 3 arcs are short since they won’t be covering teh whole war) but i am still keeping my hopes for this game as low as possable

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

    and if not whatever i still expect cc2 to include madara as their trump card to get us to buy the game a last minute thing like the masked man was

    Yeas, of course. They knew this would happen a long time ago (schedules are made very far in advance), and it’s not their fault. But now WE know and it just sucks to be a fan of the game right now.

  • *Super~Sayian*

    I don’t mind their powers, it’s just naruto’s personality honestly hit it’s climax once he met his mom, technically it was already resolved after his talk with nagato. with that said, they could had developed other side characters too but instead they jumped right into the war, sasuke’s persona was already at it’s climax since itachi’s death, so many chances to give other characters development, but no, kishi decided to leave them out, and focus on the action only.

  • Tobi

    What most people don’t realize is CC2 still works in the game during Fillers/Breaks you saw what they did with the Madara/Hashirama fight in Generations (We didn’t even see that in canon and they pulled it off) you just have to trust them about now they finished/passed the Gedo fight (Considering the Scan was a month ago (Assumption)) they might be in Edo itachi/Nagato vs Naruto/Bee or even further all they need is the character model and you got a character/fight.

    Thank you this is wat i have been saying all along but people are to dumb to understand in a video the translator said the Storm 3 story wil follow manga but will have the anime graphics and all that wat she means by faithful is that the story is true to manga we have went over this many times even when the global manager of Namco Bandai said that we will have the manga’s story and Anime visuals people were too dumb to understand u deserve 100+ likes

    There’s still hope Madara will be in. If he won’t, hmm i’m not gonna buy this game.

  • unleashrage

    I don’t mind Sasuke’s powers as he has quite a variety of moves, i actually quite like his jutsu to be honest despite the overpowering, but with naruto he uses the same two all the time. Oh yeah if i remember correctly in naruto when he was younger didn’t kakashi say the byakugan was superior to the sharingan, yet the sharingan seems to have completely over took it lol.

  • Scott Baker

    well storm 2 was based of manga. purely due to fact when it came out the anime was just starting pain vs leaf part . and english dubb was just at start of shippuden

  • *Super~Sayian*

    No, he just said there was a rumor that the sharingan was derived from the byakugan

  • http://twitter.com/2Sykz Professional

    Naruto should never of ended back then!!! theres so much more! itachi n sasuke vs kabuto finding out whats in the scroll the MADARA vs KAGES! and the final fight of sasuke vs naruto! It would be dumb to of ended it by now!

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/5G65QBCYFSU7QQPOWXIFBWXUFI Dimiter

    Guys if they don’t make a good long storymode ( I don’t care if they have to go about 10 chapters ahead of the anime ..it’s not impossible!) don’t buy the game , They think since the success of the first 2 storm games they can do what they want first generations then this …Naruto is a game that has only story to keep you really intersted in for a time , if the storymode is bad then why feed the creators ? It’ s simple if they don’t release a big ass trailer with stuff to atleast kabuto vs itachi and sasuke fight  in 2-3 weeks …We SHOULD NOT BUY THE GAME …I know it will be difficult and I surely hope not to come to this point..I hope the anime gives us atleast one double episode and I hope cc2 to be brave and try to go 10 chapters ahead :)

  • Nasahama

    2 WEEKS WITH NO EPISODE? What da fack? ¬¬

    Ah, sorry but Madara will not be in the game, not as playable character neither a boss fight, he COULD appear in the end like Tobi, Kabuto and Zetsu appeared in the Generations. It depends if the anime reach that part of the story, they will not spoil anything for the people who only see the anime u.u  

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

    When it came out it was at the end of the Pain arc. Look up the air dates then look up the Storm 2 release dates.

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

    Ugh… we’ll see. It was a mistranslation, this was confirmed. But if you can’t accept the truth there is nothing I can do.

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

    Yes, you’re right. They know all this up to a year ahead of time. And of course it will go passed the Gedo fight, there are still approximately 2 months of possible canon episodes. All this was never the issue. And I’m not sure what the Madara vs. Hashirama fight has anything to do with this considering Madara wasn’t playable in Gen regardless.

    -The first issue is, based on every past Storm game (as well as interviews, even the mistranslated one) the characters included will only come from the canon material in the anime. Edo Itachi and Nagato will be revealed in about 4-5 canon episodes, so their chances are very good. Madara will just make it if there is no more filler after Jan. 10. But everyone passed that point seems very slim.

    -The second issue is people were looking forward to characters after some of the “not so popular” gameplay additions (ring outs, death to supports, only some characters can awaken anytime). Now, it’s looking as if we won’t get into Bijuu Naruto, EMS Sasuke, or Sage Kabuto. So the only thing to look forward to is looking very grim.

    And War Obito guys, WILL be in. He’s been in the anime for quite some time now, and we all know CC2 doesn’t care if they fought or not, so long as they were introduced.

  • Deno13

    U cant be that retarded Namco Bandai said that the game will have the mangas story development and the anines visuals if you dont believe me go through all the Naruto Storm 3 info page

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

    I have gone through all the pages. The translation was wrong. They talked about manga characters, meaning no filler characters. It was fixed a few days after SI posted the video and it came out that the translator misinterpreted what he meant by “manga characters.” All he meant, again, was no filler characters and only manga characters. 

    It was properly translated by other people. I’ll try and find it for you but I’ll have to give you search terms since we can’t post links.

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

    Okay here you go, from that very same scan.

    “Jason Enos, senior global brand manager at Namco Bandai. Enos mentions “One of the focuses of [Naruto Storm 3] for developer CyberConnect2 is to bring the perfect balance of the manga and the anime.” He continues on to say “the anime is more lighthearted while the manga delves a little deeper and gets a little more serious.” Mr. Enos promises that “one of the goals this time around is to make sure manga fans feel more satisfied” by offering both “the cinematic and visual aspect of the anime” and also “the beautiful story development of the manga.”

    This isn’t even the interview I was talking about, but if this is the one you were then three things:

    1) Namco Bandai has been wrong about the content of the games each and every time before. They posted 75 characters for Gen on their official website, when the final product only had 72.

    2) SI writes, “We’re not sure if that means the game will go past the the anime or if it means just the canon content will be shown in Naruto Storm 3. We suspect the latter since games generally cover anime-only content, but we will have to wait and see!” -Saiyan Island

    -Even SI reported this particular interview as probably being only the “canon content” meaning characters and not filler ones.

    3) Read it thouroughly. There is nothing to suggest he meant “we’ll be using characters/plot points in the manga that didn’t appear in the anime.” 

    -He says, “One of the focuses of [Naruto Storm 3] for developer CyberConnect2 is to bring the perfect **BALANCE** of the manga and the anime…the anime is more lighthearted while the manga delves a little deeper and gets a little more serious.” This suggests he means the TONE of the story, not where the story will end. In addition, “the beautiful story development of the manga” is just that: the DEVELOPMENT, the TONE. 

    In lamens terms “the story will be told in a darker way similar to the manga rather then with some of the silly antics that the anime incorporates.”

    Can I be left alone now? Or should I find the actual interview with Matsuyama I was talking about (not this one).

    It has been stated NUMEROUS times. Anime will not affect this game, not the storyline pace at least. Please pass this on, no one is understanding this even though they keep saying it. Seriously, stop hating this filler that is VERY much more hard worked on than the cheap typical studio pierrot anime. And I’ve noticed, have you guys seen anything but Shonen?

  • Portgas D Ace

    The game will go as far as anime will. They will not spoil anyone who doesn’t read the manga. I dont hate this filler, is good, I like it except Kabuto, he looks like a woman, but they are putting more and more fillers and breaks and the story NEVER continues. They will not spoil that Tobi isn’t Madara for example

    Thanks for defending me. LOL!

  • JENEVEUXPAS

    Okay, so the information that was given at the London MCM Expo was “mistranslated”? I’m sorry for starting “controversy” and being a menace to freakin’ society. Not saying that you are wrong, but how do you know it was mistranslated though? The reason I’m skeptical is because Saiyan Island has not posted anything to counter the video footage of the Q&A segment of that interview? Usually if something has been found to be incorrect or misinterpreted on the site, Saiyan Island would correct it and clarify. Also, I had no intentions of raise people hopes and allowing them to be crushed, I was just giving my opinion of the filler ach, its leakage into January, and its effect to the game based on the knowledge that I received from the London MCM expo 2nd video. Now, can you please tell me where it is officially stated that information is incorrect because this statement of clarification is not found on Saiyan Island.

    I dunno why people are complaining so much, this mini filler arc is actually much better than the entire pathetic manga war arc. The story, characters, pacing, fights and the superb animation are all better. The only reason to look forward to the canon anime stuff is because of NUNS3 since the game goes as far as the anime goes.

    You can see it from Internet, they will not spoil something you can’t see. If the game follow de manga, why NUNS Generations didn’t have some scenes from the war? because in the anime we weren’t in the war. Again, you can see the anime on internet, and if you have money to buy a game for XBOX o PS3 you should have internet to see the chapters. This game go to South America countries too, and we (I am from Argentina) don’t have one chapter of Naruto SHIPPUDEN dubbed, but we see it from the Internet.

    Madara has a 50/50 chance if canon episodes start after Jan. 10th. But Unmasked Obito NEVER had a chance. That chapter is only a couple of months old, and everything is finalized months if not up to a year before release.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/5G65QBCYFSU7QQPOWXIFBWXUFI Dimiter

    For all the guys that keep saying and I quote :,,The Anine doesn’t effect the game”…..then what does effect the game? If the manga did effect the game then the story would go to the unmasking of obito which is not going to happen even if machimoto received a million for doing that…Why?! Because the Game is based on the anime!
    And I wonder how they are going to make the storyline since they have only the kage arc and the war arc which hasn’t even finished in the manga…In Storm 2 we had a very long storymode if I remember right there were 5-6 arcs.

  • Portgas D Ace

    Madara will not be in the game because at the release time, Madara will not be in the anime, so they will not spoil the people who only watch the anime. They could (is just a chance) put him like a final image of the game, but not like a boss fight neither a playable character, just a final image in the end. Zetsu, Kabuto and Tobi appeared in generations to “present” the war 

  • Caique Justino Deodato

    you’re totally right. Obito Unmasked only on Storm 5, by the speed of anime XD

  • Caique Justino Deodato

    maybe cc2 make the game in the lasts episodes until game release, or more (to complete the history)
    example: the last episodes finish on the half of fight with Itachi/Nagato, but cc2 finish with final of the fight.

  • Boomer6574

    They never announced such a game. Besides if they decide to they’d hafta do Storm 4 first.

  • Boomer6574

    CC2 didn’t know Kishimoto was going to continue Naruto. Storm 3 was announced before Kishimoto said he wasn’t finished the manga.
