Back in September, CyberConnect2 president Hiroshi Matsuyama mentioned Naruto Storm 3 will have more playable characters than it’s predecessor, Naruto Storm Generations, which had 72. Namco Bandai Games Europe, in a new press release, has officially announced the game will have over 80 playable characters!

    FIRST!

  • Braxton4715

    AWESOME :D

  • http://twitter.com/devaughn92 devaughn chambers

    Alright. It looks like they are adding the tournament part and all back in. I hope they add lars as DLC on this game.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-WmpoP6ZSs Kira

    Over 80 playable characters = many, many hours of gaming

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_DDJ7PVD4KEV7S27QKNPCES3S4U Jonez

    i wasn’t a big fan of Lars, i could actually do without him but i understand if he was a player you used

  • Braxton4715

    hell yea me 2 im looking forward to seeing alot more new characters and new kunoichis also XD

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

    Eh, no offense to CC2….well actually, full offense, but it’s time to start showing off why Storm 3 is a game-changer and stop BSing with the usual “EXPERIENCE AN AWESOME NINJA STORM, LOTS OF CHARACTERS, SAME ONLINE, MAYBE SOMETHING NEW BUT NOT SAYING ANYTHING BECAUSE WE DON’T WANT TO “SPOIL” IT, YAY, THE STORM IS COMING, GET READY, DATTEBAYO, YAY, LULZ”
    I want to see what Storm 3 has to offer, because I’m not getting fooled by the flashy trailers any more, as good as the are, they’re glammed up.

  • SalsaMixRedevil666

    Sweet!!!!

    Now I want to see more of that multiplayer modes and the online

  • Tony Colarusso

    Why dont they give us a damn list of playable characters?

  • karasuKumo

    As long as they don’t skip parts of the story mode then I’m happy. We still need the Edo Tensei Kages to be confirmed and of course the bigger villains. If that is all included in the story mode then I have no complaints.

  • EA575

    Over 80 characters? So the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist ARE playable?

  • dark_flame360

    Um, last I checked they had revealed new modes, characters, and mechanics. So yes, they are showing off different things.

  • dark_flame360

    When did they mention 107?

  • Maristela Bernardon

    Nagato where are u

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

    sweet i wonder..so ok.. might be dlc chaacters madara,swordsmen,edo kages,kabuto(sage mode)

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

    Hack and Slash mode isn’t a game changer when all I’ve seen or heard about it is one short clip of sasuke doing a flashy move and a boss battle. What about after story mode? I can guarantee you heavy spamming will still occur. I need to see more than just characters, and the only people actually describing new features are youtubers. I know it’s 3 months down the road, but 3 months isn’t too long a time.

  • ALMIGHTY Juicemon E. Genesis

    Towards the beginning.  It was a rumor that was presumably confirmed.  Obviously it was false information, clearly proven in the paragraphs above.  Go back and look at some of the previous blog entries, you’ll see it.

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

    This was confirmed a while back. But yes, they are thankfully.

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

    No swordsmen are obviously playable. There’s NO way in hell they would show us all this Swordsmen stuff and not have them playable. As for the rest, I think you may be right…if they do add a DLC.

  • timanel1

    so… the game will end with luck in madara first appearance and the game will have +80 characters with no pts ? i’m really curious about this

  • ALMIGHTY Juicemon E. Genesis

    Seriously. . .  Give it up, bro. . .  It’s really just getting sad now. . .

  • http://twitter.com/19Ericthebeast Eric Duquette

    The edo kages will be there,the anime will be already up to that point and finished the fight with them by march.

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

    So basically your saying put everything on the table now. Patience my friend, whether they show everything now or later they’ll show it with plenty of time left for everyone to decide whether they should pre-order it (or buy it at all) or not.

  • ALMIGHTY Juicemon E. Genesis

    That would be one of the bigggest fails in the world. -_-  You really want them to give you the entire roster on day 1?

  • SasukexNaruto2

    It was confirmed no guest characters so no for Lars he was mainly in Storm 2 because Kishimoto made his costume also to promote the new Tekken game that was coming out, the closet thing we get to a guest character is Naruto in Goku’s outfit.

  • ALMIGHTY Juicemon E. Genesis

    When did they officially confirm that?  I didn’t see that anywhere.  Same thing for Ginkaku and Kinkaku.  (playable of course.  I KNOW they are in the story mode)

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

    I’m assuming that the next trailer will feature the 4 edo kages and/or edo Itachi and Nagato.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_UHJJJ7YEILG43225MXZM2TOXFI Marty R

     You said it yourself, it was a rumor. Rumors are never set unless the developers/publishers release the information. 

  • EA575

    Really? When?

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

    Short while back, don’t specifically remember. 

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

    I don’t recall where, but they are officially playable last I checked. I could have sworn Gin and Kin were too.

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

    I’m saying that gameplay features shouldn’t be something to “hype around” and save for last minute and not describe at all. 

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

    Ok so let’s see who we have playable so far…
    10= Konoha 11 (minus Sasuke)
    11= Sage Naruto
    12=Kakashi
    13=Yamato
    14=Sai
    15=Guy
    16=Asuma
    17=Sasuke (Susanoo)
    18=Kabutomaru
    19=Masked Man/Tobi
    26= 7 Swordsmen
    32= Jinchuriki
    33=Gaara
    34=Temari
    35=Kankuro
    36=Deidara
    37=Sasori
    38=A
    39=Darui
    40=Killer Bee
    42=Gin/Kin
    43=Kakuzu
    44=Mifune
    45=Hanzo
    48=Team Hawk (Karin,Suigetsu, Jugo)
    49=Onoki
    50=Mei
    51=Tsunade
    52=3rd Hokage
    53=Minato
    54=Kisame
     I’m sure I’m missing a few so feel free to add in the comments if I am.
    Now onto our possibilities…
    55=Another Naruto form
    56&57=New Sasuke forms
    58=Itachi (I think it’s safe to say he will be in)
    59=Nagato
    60=Madara
    64=Edo Kages
    65=Pakura
    66=Gari
    67=Shin (?)
    68=Toroi (?)
    69=Chukichi(?)
    70=1st Hokage
    71=2nd Hokage
    72=Danzo
    73=Foo
    74=Torune
    75=Akatsuchi
    76=Kurotsuchi
    77=Ao
    78=Chojuro
    79=Cee
    80=Omoi
    81=Karui
    82=Samui
    83=Kushina
    84=Zetsu
    85=Choza
    86=Inoichi
    87=Shikaku
    88=New form of Kakashi…maybe young)
    89=Obito
    90=Chiyo
    91=Kimmimaro
    92=Jiraiya
    93=Orochimaru
    94=Pain
    95=Konan
    96=Hidan
    97=Haku
    So obviously, there’s enough to go around. I’m sure a lot of these won
    t be characters like Toroi and Chukichi and probably Kushina but still, there’s almost 100 right there.

  • Tyler Casilio

    Over 80 might mean like 82 to 86. That’s actually a lot seeing there are no PTS characters. But 90 would be better

  • huji fuji

    Hopefully SAge Kabuto is playable and Anko. Also, Hope they don’t forget about Baki. :3 

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

     i think the story will go to the end of the war cause it would make any sense to stop were the anime is by the time the game comes out.

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

    HOPEFULLY a single rage quit won’t ruin a WHOLE tournament, and when you make one you can pick characters usable and non-usable, etc.
    If there’s 3 on 3 (6 ninja at once) or some sort of multi vs. multi, with all on the field at once, then I’m sold.

  • SasukexNaruto2

    If it was 90 I think they would say 90 I’m pretty sure it’s only going to be about 84-86 characters like really why add 89 characters they should just add more right.

  • timanel1

    i know what you mean but its pretty much confirmed that the game will end where the anime ends.

  • SasukexNaruto2

    To tell you the truth it’s a great list but I can’t see Ino-Shika-Chou parents as playable neither zetsu or kushina but they could be playable id like to see Omoi, Kitsuchi, sage kabuto & others but if they were to add 89 it would be wierd they would’ve just gave that extra character in an say over 90 but hey.

  • imichigo1

    thats like in the hundreds if you put all 7 swordsmen and list all jinchuhiki

  • NARUTOxANKO

    I want Anko Mitarashi come on Cc2 i want to play with her <3 confirm Anko as a playable character !!!

    aw you forgot about muu and by the way naruto chakra lvl2 has been confirmed

  • imichigo1

    i agree

  • http://twitter.com/BryanMejia19 Bryan Mejia

    i really want to play with shizune and kurenai! :S

  • SasukexNaruto2

    It will be funny if the game has only 81 characters

  • Braxton4715

    mybad :P and when?

  • Braxton4715

    ive been wanting to play as her since storm 1

  • Braxton4715

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_OJKG5PL72M2H5N6QFLWXLODEFU B

    She should be playable she had a brief skirmish with Kabuto..

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

    about a week ago. well it hasn’t been confirmed as a playable character, but it has been confirmed that he will be in the game in some form. so we just all assume he will be playable.

  • narutopiece1

    Muu (reanimated).
    I highly doubt that EMS sasuke will be in the game. 
    Madara Uchiha (reanimated) is likely to be in the game as a DLC character.
    Naruto (Bijuu Mode) possibly DLC character.

  • http://twitter.com/Boomer6574 Jevonte Marquis Gore

    It’s like that time with Generations, they told us over 65 but we ended up with over 70.
    This time they told us over 70 but end up with over 80!

  • sakuya18

    but it will gens had or 70 but it was only 72 its just to get so hype for the game

  • uchihalord1994

    WOAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! HELLL YEAAAAAAAAAAA dattebayo!!! xDD 

  • Gaiash Ketoji

     Kind of. It was confirmed you can play as them in Hack & Slash mode but it should be clear they’d be playable normally if that’s the case.

  • nejiandhinataHYUGA

    In North America and South America, Naruto UNS 3 is gonna be released on March 5th. That’s my birthday :D  
    But I live in England. -.- So I have to wait for another 3 days. :(

  • Brodie Mains

    ^Is Probably extremely bad at competitive storm play.

  • Braxton4715

    oh so im guessing its a rumor for now then

  • uchihalord1994

    DAT FML MOMENTS !!! LOL

  • KingMza

    I wish they did make this list, it just needs Dodai then it’s set, but if they did this list I would pay $100

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

    Raiga was not reanimated. He was a filler character in pts Naruto. Nontheless, it woul dbe sweet to play as him!

  • beaunard declasse

    that’s if hidan is in the game…   :I

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

    Lol I did, I skipped from 19-26 for Swordsmen and 26-32 for Jinchuriki.

  • Marqueth Scott

    Pakura and Gari hopefully

  • iHokage

    CC2,STOP telling us over 80 characters or 100+ just tell us there name and hell….. ://

  • imichigo1

    like last week

  • imichigo1

    they already said that lvl2 chakra naruto would be in the game

  • http://twitter.com/MaleficentChris Christian Orozco

    Guys I think they skiped Tobi vs Konan T.T

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

    Am I the only one who thinks Young Kakashi and Obito will be playable, too? It would kind of be hard to grasp for people who only play the game/ skipped generations, (Although HOW can you miss that arc, lol). 
    My main character requests:
    -Young Minato and Kushina (lol, in my dreams.)
    - Kushina
    - Edo Itachi 
    - Edo Nagato
    - “Killer Tobito” (Young Obito, long  hair)

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

    ; u; And it was my most anticipated battle, too. I mean could you have imagined how awesome that stage would have been? ; A;

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    THAT’S AWESOME XD

  • Boomer6574

    Well the last trailer showed Sasuke with his zipped up shirt.

  • Boomer6574

    Kabuto snake cloak is already in. Sage mode I doubt.

  • Boomer6574

    Are they gonna be able to confirm them all by the time it’s released?

  • Braxton4715

    yup XDDD

  • uchihalord1994

    i refuse to believe it :I lol im sure its there ! remember konan was alive in storm 2′s ending so im sure tht battle is needed for him to get the rinnegan :)  

  • http://twitter.com/Boomer6574 Jevonte Marquis Gore

    it’s either 82,3,4,or 5.

  • MasterAfroNinja

    If NSUNSG had 72 characters minus the fifteen PST characters that means we have 57 characters we already have played which gives us around 24 new characters if its over 80, right? 

  • imichigo1

    why do you say that

  • ButterBall Bisquit

    they gotta make zetsu a playable character. im tired of this bullshit where hes like 2nd in command of akatsuki, has had a fair amount of battles, and would be an awesome character.
    CHARACTER WISHLIST TOP 10:
    1. madara uchiha, perfect susanoo
    2. eternal mangekyou sharingan sasuke, susanoo
    3. rinnegan obito without mask, super kamui
    4. zetsu, 100,000 zetsu army back up
    5. sage mode kabuto, idk
    6. edo itachi, totsuka blade susanoo
    7. bijuu mode naruto, giant tailed beast bomb
    8. kushina, chain thing
    9. 1st hokage (hopefully he doesnt really suck even though he’s like a god of ninja),awesome will of fire wood thing
    10. edo nagato (preferably when he starts looking young), chibaku tensei

  • sonic100mario0

    My speculation for the character roster in naruto storm 3 consists of a massive 90 characters! 

    *Notice I didn’t add some minor characters in, so it could be total of 90+ !*

    *Then again, I did and Shin and Kushina, who have a super low chance of getting in, so it could be 87 chars..*

    *87 because Tobi and MaskedMan might be 1 guy.* 

    *Each character might have 2 costumes in order to give normal clothes instead of war clothes*

    *Any characters I missed? Spelling error? Please tell me!*

    *Hidan, Jiraiya, Pain, and Orochimaru are not on here because….. Well, they are not in the war.*

    *Pain could be counted in because he was on the cover of the “True despair edition” making it 88.*

    * There are 90 Chars on the list. This was done to see which people have a better chance to get in. you choose!*

    I hope they CC2 doesn’t forget ‘minor’ characters like Toroi,Gari,Pakura,Omoi,Dodai,Kurotsuchi,Chojuro and many others
    Oh and Zetsu to complete the Akatsuki roster,and captain Kitsuchi too

    me vs u in storm 3 XD lol but a pure friendly match.

    watch it will be like 82 lol

  • jason bradley

     that would be an awesome list,but i don’t get why hidan,jiraiya,orochimaru ETC won’t be in it,there was a scan that showed chidori spear sasuke,and that version of sasuke was not in the war,but he’s in it.

  • imichigo1

    prob

  • jason bradley

    the hidan clone should be one of the DLC costumes out of the five,and maybe menma for one of the other costumes.

  • EnmanuelCastaneda

    hey remember in generations was 72 but it was 72 because of the small useless characters( it means every kid storm 1 or past)( there were 17) if you subtract 72 – 17 it will = 55 so it says that there will be more than eighty that means that the 55 which are grown ups plus (maybe) madara, muu, the 2nd mizukage i believe, the third raikage,and also the fourth kazekage, tobi rinnegan, (possibly)bijuu mode 2nd , sasuke ems like i said in bijuu,, nagato, itachi reani shouyld count cuz he really uses some jutsus he never used before i believe, tailed beast( 7 ), gin/kin(2),pretty sure akatsuchi, darui, mifune hanzo, deidara, sasori, asuma,i cant remember the guy who helped hidan fight, hidan, as reanimated, bijuu mode 1,7 ninja swordsmen, will equal 91 now bonus that should be extras are sasori in his hiruko puppet thingy form konohamaru anbu sage frog probably the should add the crystal woman in the episodes and why not kishi himself with his own different jutsus  

  • swago

    confirmed so far 

  • EnmanuelCastaneda

    unless 57 because maybe you might think that obito and kakashi( past version) counts then that would be 93

  • swago

    and i kick thers with tonton and shizune

  • EnmanuelCastaneda

    i know the the obito without mask wont be able to be in the game and i predict that the at the the end of the game it will say keep reading the manga

  • swago

    how come konan vs masked man was omitted

  • swago

    the trailer showed confining the fox and skipped to garra speech when it happen after so that obito get the rinnegan

  • SamA94

    right going to make the most likely list possible here (that means no stupid characters like kushina or toroi who no offense guys have no chance at being playable, maybe support only but we don’t know if the game will have them or not)

  • lucas duelist

     Lol no no one will put that in  like second orochimaru. play with orochimaru if you want her that badly

  • NARUTOxANKO

    me too and she is my favourite that hurts ;(

  • NARUTOxANKO

    lol think about you comment Anko is not like orochimaru. I hate orochimaru !. I love Anko since the first time and i want to play with my favourite character  deal with it !!!

  • timanel1

    i hope this is the list.. you did a good job there. though masked man and rinnegan tobi will be seperate characters and zabuza is part of the seven swordsman… anko , gari and pakura are not going to be in the game , though i would like to see them in . but i think you putted the major characters there and really hope this is the real list +.+

  • imichigo1

    wow you made it work perfectly awesome

  • SamA94

    thanks for pointing out about zabuza haha and yeah would love to see anko, pakura and gari there the main minor characters I’d love to see playable tbh I’d prefer them over kinkaku and Ginkaku.

  • sonic100mario0

    I still don’t see how Jiraiya is gonna get in…. and Orochimaru…..Hishirama…akatsuki sasuke.. young Kakashi, Obito and I stopped reading at hidan..These people have nothing to do with the war and have little to none chances of getting in the game. Most of the characters on this list would just be pure fan service.. just might not happen. 

  • sonic100mario0

    That is because, the ultimate decision mode. they it could be just like a what if… I dont want old characters with the same moveset I want new stuff.

  • SamA94

    you see I don’t get why everyone keeps saying that just because they are not part of the war arc they will not be in. Why on earth would CC2 cut out characters they can literally cut and paste from storm 2 and just add an awakening action to. This game can’t possibly have over 80 characters if everyone who wasn’t in the war wasn’t in the game, and don’t say “but oh they can add *insert random minor character’s name here” because we know what CC2 is like with minor characters heck we still dont know if the swordsman and kinkaku/ginkaku will be playable yet never mind kurotsuchi, toroi, and the random rubber guy etc.

  • Boomer6574

    I doubt young Kakashi.

  • Boomer6574

    Gari,Omoi,Pakura,Zetsu,and Chojuro might be in.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/7TYZTHF3VU74LKGKHOFUHQVJEM ace

    There’s quite a few who shouldn’t be in yes, but that doesn’t mean they won’t… Sadly.

  • bruno nunes

    samA94, You forgot Kitsuchi (war captain), his daughter kurotsuchi, another killerbee, chojuro 

  • Boomer6574

    Everybody wants Kushina but I don’t know about her.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/SHO2NFZXUKIZHMRFMKBLMOQCEI Tobi

    Over 80 characters, don’t know if I should be excited or disappointed since there is only 9 weeks till the game comes out so it should be in its final stages of development so there might not be a addition in characters but there could be DLC for more characters oh well.

  • yorudox

    I don’t get that roster. I love how Jiraiya is on tho :D

    but hidan is cool but people just want him for a spam support… and i think young kakashi and obito where just for generations.

    true kushina has no chance…. but same goes for tobirama, why is he even on there?

    regular kabuto? really….

    you got dumba%#  gari on there…. but no omoi? heck no >:()

    And orochimaru is dead…. jiraiya is alive in all of are hearts :D even cc2 knows that!

    and I have to admit there are some cool chars on that… but if they put regular kabuto, hishirama, tobirama, kakashi, obito, hidan, and anko on there.

    then we better get: the sound 4 and jounin minato and f#%*rin…

    I don’t  think just cuz we get kakazu… we get hidan.. I don’t think, just cuz we previously got obito and kakashi…. where gonna get them now…i don’t think that just because we get tsunade and jiraiya… we get orochimaru.. I don’t think just because we might get madara and the 3rd… We get the 1st and 2nd hokages…

    I kinda prefer sonic100′s list even tho we dont get f%#% jiraiya on that one…. I kinda see why

  • sonic100mario0

    MY lord…… i dont see why we cant have new characters rather then characters that have been  there since storm 1!!!!!!!! Jiraiya, orochimaru Are getting old!!! I want new CRap kurotsuchi is better then hidan in my book, i dont see why cc2 can spit in flipping kid kakashi when they cant and someone who cool and has appeared more times like omoi… I whould love to play as a new char like sai’s brother rather then some reused garbage like first rasenshuriken naruto….
    why cant people who want characters that got there chance play the old storm games….. I cant flipping stand hidan anymore.

    you people hear many saying that its the same Shizz OVER AND OVER and you still request old characters that you KNOW they are not gonna change their moveset, OVER NEW STUFF

    O_O

    big post!

  • ResidentMetroid

    I wish characters had more depth in their move list, combos, and Jutsus. I prefer quality over quantity

  • yorudox

    you feel me. cuz right now i feel you. O_O

  • Ultimuz743

    I just hope in the end that there is only 1 spot for 1 specific character. Fine, count Naruto as 4 characters. But at least put them all in 1 spot of the roster for God sakes. I shouldn’t have to hunt for them individually. DBZ has it so this game should too.

  • sonic100mario0

    Sadly CC2 looks like they are going to pull another fast one… But sill, if they are going for quantity, then id just rather them add new characters over old copy and paste ones. I would understand people wanting a chance to play as there old faves if it was a completely upgraded fighting system that made the old one look like crap, but since its the same old stuff as last time but a little different, id rather give the new guys a chance and then go back to storm 1 2 or gen to play as Jiraiya…

  • khmerack

    unless your a girl and hes a guy that was kinda gay xD

  • SamA94

    the reason I put tobirama and all these other characters that aren’t in the war is because I don’t believe CC2 to be the kind of company who just takes out characters that are already made to “make room” for newer characters. Considering the old characters probably take no time at all to put in the game I don’t see how they ruin any chances for other characters when they’ll have the same amount of time to create new characters whether the old ones were in or not. I put Gari in there because I feel there could be more done with his moveset I can just see Omoi being another Mifune with a different ougi and jutsu, Gari is somehwat of a different style of character. But I wouldn’t complain if they put him in. To be honest I kind of forgot about him along with Kitsuchi and Chojuro haha.

  • Kitty power

    Ok you guys are dumb if you think Jiraya/Orochimaru/Any other character that died is not in the game. It is already stated that the story mode will start from the very beginning of Naruto up until some point in the war. Meaning every single player in storm 2 will definitely be playable. And probably most of the ones of generations also, but probably not kid kakashi and the young versions of everybody. 

    As for DLC, id love for the game to have some good DLC, maybe expansions to story line or more characters, and id d definetly be willing to pay for it. However, knowing CC2, there probably wont be any DLC because there wasnt any for Storm 2 or Generations

    Plus, even if a character isnt directly in the story they may still be there because they are important. Like the Kage’s in Generations. None of them were in the story mode, but they were available in the Multiplayer.

    If you really want to predict the exact characters, i think SamA94′s list is extremely close to the real character roster.

    As a side note, Stop whining that you want the sound 4 in the game!!!! If theyre in it, great, if there not, big deal. They were never a big or important part in Naruto, they were only there for a very small period of time. This is just like the arguement of Zabuza and Haku. I saw people whining and whining that they want them in the game, and when they were finally put in, nobody ever uses them and now everybodys whining about something else(sound 4). I know for a fact the majority of the people who want the sound 4 in will never even use them

  • Boomer6574

    What are you talking about?

    Actually The Game Wont Start At The Beginning Of Naruto It Will Go Back To The Kyuubi Attack On Konoha As A Part In The Story When He Meets His Mother, Kushina, And Before She Fades Away She Tells Him The Story Of How The Kyuubi Attacked And How Naruto Was Born. The Game Will Start At The Five Kage Summit

  • Caique Justino Deodato

    Yeah, I hope too.

  • Caique Justino Deodato

    But where’s Sasuke vs Samurais in Kage Summit? The Attack of Kyuubi and Naruto vs Kyuubi its after Kage Summit,

  • uchihalord1994

    Ur the dumb here buddy! people have the right to complain! -.- and no it will start after the destruction of the konoha! >.> which means in kage summit arc … the will go back on the kyuubi attack as a flashback . 

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

    But will include all Shippuden characters thus far used, as was officially announced in one of Matsuyama’s interviews.

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

    Over 80 characters SI? Did you not forget when NB announced 75 characters for Generations even though the final roster only contained 72? Unless the information comes specifically from CC2 I take it with a grain of salt. So should you after dealing with these companies for so long. 

    There is one pre-order bonus yet NB classifies it as “access to special BONUSES.” My gosh, they don’t even know how to count. No wonder their roster estimation is always off. And people fall for this, that’s the sad part.

    I should sue them for all their false advertising. I might make a decent buck and teach them a lesson about law and that not ALL Naruto fans are incompetent.

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

    Lol. You couldn’t be more right. 

  • Caique Justino Deodato

    In the Generations we have 52 characters that probably will appear in storm 3 (excluding Kid Kakashi and Obito, and classic chars), so at last 28 new characters will be in the game. 

    - 6 Jinchurikis
    - Killer Bee with Samehada
    - New Gaara
    - Danzo
    - Hanzo
    - Mifune
    - Edo Deidara

    He means have them in one slot. For example, press L1/R1 (LB/RB) to switch between each rather then having to move the cursor to another slot.

    What is wrong with you people? “It is already stated that the story mode will start from the very beginning of Naruto up until some point in the war”… You do know if that was true… then we would get the exact same battles from storm 1 up to storm gen remade… right…. The Real reason why the game has the 3rd Hokage vs 9 tails and Minato vs Masked man and 9 tails is because Kushina is explaining it to Naruto while he is mid battle the 9 tailed fox.

    “Plus, even if a character isnt directly in the story they may still be there because they are important.” If that is true… Then why not have some brand new playable characters that are just as important, such as Torune, Fu, Akatsuchi, Kurotsuchi, Ao, Chōjūrō,. Kitsuchi,Gari, Chūkichi, Pakura,Chōza, Inoichi, Shikaku, and omoi? 

    also we need to give new characters a chance, as I said “ I would understand people wanting a chance to play as there old faves if it was a completely upgraded fighting system that made the old one look like crap, but since its the same old stuff as last time but a little different, id rather give the new guys a chance and then go back to storm 1 2 or gen to play as Jiraiya etc.”

    The story starts from the Kyuubi sealing, with a flashback to Kage Summit if I’m correct. But yes, every character thus far used in a Shippuden Storm game will be included. It was stated early on by Matsuyama in an interview.

  • Braxton4715

    ik i just thought i put him in to see how the roster would turn out

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

    It seems people are disappointed even by 80. Don’t even expect that much. Namco Bandai always overestimates the roster number (they said 75 for Gen on the official website, which only had 72, for example). If it doesn’t come directly from CC2, don’t believe it.

    Wow if that’s true… then we really are getting the same old stuff. ._.

    Look up the Comic Con interview in July. Matsuyama states every Shippuden character included in a Storm game thus far will be included. It’s not wishful thinking, it’s fact.

    And if you have to ask that question, you know nothing about business. Companies will do whatever it takes to maximize profits. Since in general, Naruto fans will eat up any little bit of new content, they maximize said profits by copying and pasting previous characters into the game. It’s business 101.

    You have a point as usual, but they decided to go with the more ambiguous “over 80″ instead of 83 or whatever. And we still don’t know what’s the deal with the samurai Naruto outfit, which likely why they said bonuses instead of bonus.

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

    No. UN4 had the PTS and TS characters in separate slots. What he means is something akin to Nine Tailed Rasengan/Rasenshuriken Naruto, in which you just press L1/R1 to switch between them and not move over 1 with the analog stick to pick Kage Summit Naruto (like it was in Gen), for example.

  • konanNobito

    So right now I’m going to go to my room and slap in storm generations take all the characters from storm 2 plus the kages , zabuza haku and team minato subtract from let’s say 85 and see what I get then whatever I get. I will factor in all the characters that have been confirmed so far and then choose wisely for characters that will fill the empty spaces

    And does anyone know the jutsu hinata used a few chapters back to direct the ten tails tailedbeast bomb

    Also I’m going to coun the days from now on til the 5th and post that and i m going to start saving my money now.

    And Konan better be changed or atleast given different combo in her awakening

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

    That’s an intelligent idea. It will give us an estimate on how many more characters to expect. Just know that Namco Bandai has been wrong about the character count in the past (only CC2 knows the true amount). To be safe, I’d say give a window of error of about 5 characters. it probably won’t be that much (the largest discrepancy was 3 characters, 72 as opposed to 75 in Generations) but again, just to be safe.

  • konanNobito

    For someone as intelligent as you are -_- you seem a little annoyed today

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

    I get annoyed when a trusted site misinforms its users. It’s not SIs fault that Namco Bandai is consistently wrong about the roster, but when they’ve dealt with NB as long as I have (in regards to the Storm series) they should have the decency to give all the facts before getting people’s hopes up (or even down).

  • konanNobito

    Ultimate ninja STORM 1 was a STORM game but we won’t be playing wit Pts characters so don’t believe every thing you hear.

    And 80 characters that doesn’t sound any where near enough how can they boast so much about ahuge characters roster and only add abbout 10 more there has to be atleast 90 characters not including support

    PREACH BRUTHA. 

  • konanNobito

    Ok I’m going to try and explain this in a way so no one will get confused

    They’re are 56 six characters that were plyable in generations that will most likely be playable in storm 3 that is including -Obito,Young kakashi.Zabuza and Haku

    That leaves 29 if we estimate 85 characters total

    29
    -6 jinchuriki
    = 23

    23
    -3 Mifune,Hanzo and Darui
    =20

    20
    -2 Gold and silver bros
    =18

    18
    -6 swordsmen ninja
    =12

    Leaves space for 12 more playable characters ,once again I do stress that this is only if we estimate 85 total playable characters. It could be mmore or less than 85

    For the remaining characters I’ve choosen I will list them in a number order from most likely to least likely

    1.Obito( sage of six paths mask)
    2. 2nd Mizukage
    3.2nd tuschikage*
    4.3rd Raikage
    5.4th Kazekage
    6.Nagato
    7.Kurotuchi*
    8.Chojuro
    9.Pakura
    10.Gari
    11.Madara Uchiha

    That leaves on spot but I couldn’t think of anyone who deseerved the spot more than any one else so I’m guessing it will be kimmimaru* because he was in generations and also was edo revived.

    I will state again this is only if we get a total of 85 characters

    EDIT: * is for spelling errors

    Most reasonable 80 character roster for me
    Konoha : -Team Kakashi  (6)–>Original Naruto,Kcm,Sage Mode      
                  -Team Guy        (4)                   
                  -Team Asuma    (4)                   
                  -Team Kurenai   (3)                                        
                  -Yamato&Jiraiya(2)
                  -Danzo             (1)

    Sand :   Kankuro,Temari,Chiyo (3)

    Mist   :  Chojuro,Zabuza,Haku (3)

    Cloud :  Darui,Kin&Gin,2 Killer Bee (5)

    Rock:    Kurotsuchi,Kitsuchi (2)

    Orochimaru Guys:   Orochimaru, 2 Kabuto,Kimimaro (4)

    Taka:    3 Sasuke,Karin,Suigetsu,Jugo (6)

    Akatsuki:   Sasori,Deidara,Kakuzu,Hidan,Pain,Konan,2 Itachi,Kisame,2 Tobi,Nagato (12)

    Kages: -5 Kages (5)
               -2nd Tsuchikage,2nd Mizukage,3rd Raikage,4th Kazekage (4)
               -Minato&3rd Hokage (2)

    Misc:   -6 Jinchurikis (6)
               -Mifune&Hanzo(2)

    Konoha=20
    Sand=3
    Mist=3
    Cloud=5
    Rock=2
    Oro Guys=4
    Taka=6
    Akatsuki=12
    Kages=11
    Misc=8

    Konoha+Sand+Mist+Cloud+Rock+Oro Guys+Taka+Akatsuki+Kages+Misc
    =20+3+3+5+2+4+6+12+11+8=74

    6 More Characters I Speculated:
    -Madara
    -Masked Obito
    -Unmasked Obito (Different moveset with masked 1)
    -Naruto Bijuu Mode
    -Sasuke EMS
    -(1 More Character)–>Most likely Explosion Tag Konan/Edo Sasoi Maybe?

    So, 74+6=80

    Why not 7 swordsmen/pakura&gari? They haven’t shown enough action.

    Tell me if im mistaken

    still one thing remains in my mind. in storm 1, there was an all new roster of characters, in storm 2 there was an all new roster. but it seems like storm 3 will break that cycle. that just seemed to make me mad.

    I just wanted a fresh game where i didn’t have to worry about hidan (lol) it just seemed like they pulled a big buck over are heads.

    I think they’ll add extensive dlc to the game in order to expand on the missing parts of the last shippuden arc. I doubt they’ll come out with a storm 4 so this is what they’ve decided to do.

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

    It’s not likely the last Storm game. They lied about Storm 3 going to the end of the manga first of all, so who’s to say they didn’t lie here? Second, there is still more content to come in the manga. If not Storm (which I still doubt) then CC2 will continue with the manga using another series.

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

    No PTS characters will be used unless they were ressurected using Edo Tensei. Matsuyama has said this more then once.

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

    I agree 100% with you. My biggest gripe is exactly what you said: That both Storm 1 and 2 had barely any recycled content, while Storm 3 is heavily recycled. I don’t know what happened to their commitment to quality as well as quantity, but sales seem to have gotten to their heads and now they are simply trying to make a quick buck.

    And your welcome. Glad we could understand each others’ positions.

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

    They did state that DLC will be used in the future (meaning outtside just the costumes available at release). What kind of DLC remains a mystery however. 

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

    Minus PTS that were not resurrected or took part in the TS storyline in some form (such as the 3rd, Zabuza, Haku, and Kimimaro). So some PTS characters will make into the game, and the 3rd has already been confirmed. 

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

    Don’t worry about it. Like I implied, I try to understand people’s positions and I can see where you might think I was being malicious. ^_^

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

    If you mean characters, I highly doubt that. NB usually overestimates (actually to my knowledge has always, not usually, overestimated) so the more likely scenario is between 77-80 characters. 

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

    It will be included. However (though slightly ambiguous) CC2 hinted that the game will start with the Kyuubi sealing, then flashback to the Kage Summit at some point.

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

    The problem with your theory is DLC is not as prevalent in Japan as elsewhere. Japanese gamers are less inclined to Download new content, and as such, many companies there try to minimize their reliance on it. 

    They said storm 3 will have DLC support outside the lanch costumes, however, I don’t think it will be so extensive as to include new story scenarios from the manga as well as new characters from very far into it (maybe a few characters here and there, but that’s all).

     Oh no , I think even CC2 would never make Madara with a lame moveset ,never.

  • ObitoRinnegan

     Well I kind of like the fact that characters from Storm 2 and Gen will reappear ,I mean really what would we do without Orochimaru , Jiraya and characters like that ,I just dont like the fact where again 10 Sasukes and Narutos will appear , also for Kabuto , why would he be in ,Kabutomaru is just enough ,for example who would play a Naruto from Hidan/Kakuzu arc. when there will probably be BM Naruto ,I mean there are some insignificant characters who will reapper ,but still there will be over 25 new characters so it doesnt really bother me.

  • Daniele Prati

    Do you think in NUNS3 will be character that didn’t appear in manga/anime since Nagato’s death? I’m referring to Jiraya, Pain, Hidan ecc..

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

    So they said Over 80 last year with generations over 70 and it was just 2 unconfirmed with masked man and kabuto (snake cloak) now they will have all the ones from storm 2,and generations (not pts characters) and last year they did show a pictures of the character selection so that in total of 41 confirmed (correct me if im wrong) It will mostly be about the war arc…could have the supports from generations playable like anko,shizune,kages helpers with a few of them and the 5 kage summit is my favorite arc. So if its short then ill give it a 3 out of 10

  • timanel1

    they will have the 41 characters from Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 ( Lars doesnt enter ) 

  • Daniele Prati

    This is an opinio i think.. or where do you read this news?

  • Braxton4715

    they’ll probably reveal it later during the five kage summit trailer they skipped danzo vs sasuke

  • bruno nunes

    captain kitsuchi

  • timanel1

    it was confirmed already by CC2 president

  • Daniele Prati

     I don’t remember this, can you give me a link or an abstract?

  • QIQI12

    To be honest i prefer “miscellaneous” character like Shizune,Konohamaru,Hanabi(hinata’s sister),Anko,Kurenai,The sound five(I think they will show up,not sure),Udon,Moegi,and many other more.
    Why,because they are fun character’s(just by imagining ^^) I think.

  • konanNobito

    Repost
    Ok I’m going to explain this in a way so no one gets confused

    There is 56 characters that are in generations that will most likely be playable in storm 3 that is Including- Obito,Young Kakashi,Zabuza and Haku.And this Roster I have created has added no previous support characters because we haven’t gotten any confirmed except Darui

    That leaves 29 if we estimate 85 total characters

    29
    -6 jinchuriki
    =23

    23
    -3 Mifune,Darui, and Hanzo
    =20

    20
    -2 Ginkaku and Kinkaku
    =18

    18
    -6 Ninja swordsmen
    =12

    That leaves space for 12 More playable characters, And once again I stress that this is only if we get 85 characters it could be more or less

    For the remaining characters I’ve choosen I will list them from Most likely to least likely

    1.Obito(Sage of Six Paths Mask)
    2.2nd Mizukage
    3.2ndTschikage*
    4.3rd Raikage
    5.4th Kazkage
    6.Nagato
    7.Kurotuchi*
    8.Chojuro
    9.Pakura
    10.Gari
    11.Madara Uchiha

    That leaves 1 spot bbut I couldn’t think of anyone who deserved it more thananyone else so I’m guessing it is Kimimaro* because he was edo revived and was in generations

    One again I say that this roster is only neccesarily correct if we assume a total of 85 characters playable

    * Spelling Errors

    Yes I counted Danzo, Jiraya*, Hidan, and Konan ;) <3

    And no I added no support characters only the ones tha were playable Minus pts characters

    And as for Ems Sasuke I'm hoping that instead of having several characters icons for sasuke and naruto they do it like Minato and Itachis switched ultimates so its less extra icons
    If they do that we could have 4 extra characters

  • Daniele Prati

     Reposting is forbidden -.-

  • http://twitter.com/Keviouk KuroPansa

    You didn’t count 3rd Hokage, did you ?

  • http://twitter.com/Keviouk KuroPansa

    Anko and Shizune should definitely be in the game. Not Kurenai because she’s pregnant/young mom at the time of Storm 3. Same for Konohamaru team, they’re staying at the village. And sound four (not including Kimimaro) are useless now.

  • konanNobito

    Yeah I did why do you ask?

  • konanNobito

    Well if that’s forbidden its not a repost because its not the exact same as the similar post I was reffering to :p

  • Kitty power

    They better not have sub-only characters….they really are pointless they should just include the full character and not have any sub character. Take away all the subs from generations and the number of characters decreases majorly.

    Make every character fully playable and eliminate the sub-only characters . Either put in the full character, or dont put him in at all. This sub-only thing is so annoying

  • 69tails

    u guys think torune will be playable

  • 69tails

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/JA42LTE4ZPJLGP5GTR52CFL5GQ Steven Wilkins

    Well we all know that a good bit of those slots lets say about 5-10 will be occupied by different versions of Naruto & Sasuke just like in Storm 2 & Generations. So in reality we are really getting 70-75 different characters

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/SHO2NFZXUKIZHMRFMKBLMOQCEI Tobi

    When you think about it over 80 characters (like in 81-85 in actuality) is sad especially considering the amount of development time the game has had. 2/3 of the characters are just being carried over from the previous games and with that being said most of those characters will be the same without any sort of move set changes unless CC2 surprises us with but I highly doubt that. 

  • imichigo1

    i know, but they will

  • ButterBall Bisquit

    im going to blow my brains out if all they show is sasuke killing zetsu and then the game ends without any boss battle for sasuke,  then resulting in no playable ems sasuke. think about it. ems sasuke made his debut during the fight with the 3rd raikage, the games follow the anime and a tiny bit of the manga, and the game gets released in exactly 2 months. that makes room for 8 more naruto episodes. its 2 more weeks until the next episode so its actually 6 episodes. we still have to get through that horrible filler which i think has one more part left (5 left). the battle of bee and naruto vs nagato and itachi will probably take 3 episodes (2 left). it might possibly start the 3rd raikage fight but not get into sasukes susanoo test scene. and how far do u think it will go into the manga (not far!). therefore theres a good chance that ems sasuke wont even be in the game much less madara or obito unmasked or bijuu naruto. as much as i and all naruto storm players want this game to go far into the manga it wont. generations went like 10 episodes ahead of storm 2 which isnt alot and im thinkin this game will do the same. cc2 is just plain dissapointing and we need to face it  :(

  • anto2494

    yeah madara and sound four ninja :D :D

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

     its going to follow the manga cause this is the final storm game it will go all the way to the end of the war.

  • ButterBall Bisquit

    its not the final storm game cuz this war isnt the end of the naruto series

  • http://twitter.com/Boomer6574 Jevonte Marquis Gore

    Sasuke vs Zetsu isn’t even going to be in this. The game is most likely to end at the part where they battle the Jinchuuriki. And that Sasuke is confirmed.

  • khmerack

    ya i think im gonna go with everyone else on the whole “its not over 80 characters” thing. if you look back since storm 2 they said the games would have this many characters and they both ended up being less in the final.

    they also said storm 2 would have all the paths of pain playable, but we only had 1…….just throwing that out there too.

  • http://twitter.com/Boomer6574 Jevonte Marquis Gore

    You sure SI didn’t write that Pain paths comment?

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

     But there is 2 months left. Who know? The manga could probably end by February. But if this isn’t the last storm game, they shouldn’t have added the tailed beasts yet, I know they showed up in the show, but it would have been best to save that for the last game, for like a big blow out.

  • KonohamaruKun_99

    That would be cool actually

  • KonohamaruKun_99

    I just really want ino to have a better ougi and I also want chojuro playable..

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/SHO2NFZXUKIZHMRFMKBLMOQCEI Tobi

    You have a point CC2 is more than likely going to be disappoint their fans. The game has been in development for 2.5+ years and theres barely any improvements or additions. They focus on story mode thats just one mode and if the game play is bad because mechanics have not improved then the game is gonna suck along with a small addition of new characters.

  • khmerack

    ill check again, but if i remember right si said CC2 confirmed them playable.

  • heartlessniggasprosper

    You’re dreaming.

  • GingerXpress321

    Nah… more according to the reports its supposed to match up to the latest episode released. More than likely there will be more then 1 game after depending on if he decides to continue on with the naruto series. But considering this is the top three mangas in japan I don’t see it coming to an end…. or until naruto becomes hokage in the series. Honestly love the idea of so many characters and at the same time don’t. How many times have you played online against someone using Sakura, Choji, Kimimaro, ect. Truly a lot of slack could be picked up from making some of the lesser used characters into only support types, revamping the move-lists, ultimate jutsus, extending the story mode a little bit, and making minor/crucial touch-ups on the gameplay mechanics. Don’t get me wrong…. love the series and love the games. Definitely my fave as of any other fighting game out there and can’t criticize too much but for the game looks awesome. It’s gonna be fun and even though it may be over-estimated at this point you know  with the trailers, the new material shown, hack n slash….. it’s gonna be a new style storm game and its gonna be fun

  • TsunaSawada- (Vongola Clan)

    they never said anything about the paths of pain being playable in storm 2

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

     That’s not really true, it was said that Storm 3 might be the last game but due to updates from Kishimoto, the series still has more to come. CC2 thought this at first, until that update had came out and I’m sure they’ve made adjustments accordingly.

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

     no the war wouldnt be the end of naruto but this is the last storm game that they is making thats way the story will end were the ten tails.

  • Zeus Nation

    Storm 3 = 80+ characters. Storm 4 = 90+ Characters. Storm 5 = 100+ Characters. Storm 6 = 110 1/2+ Characters lol…. And so on. That’s the formula of how CC2 will take our money until we are all like 90 years old lol :)

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/CTP76LC3ZYAOUID7W7OSEPMQAY Gregory

  • SasukexNaruto2

    I think the movesets will be the same for most characters I say we got lucky in generations with kisame & sage naruto.

  • SasukexNaruto2

    It would’ve been nice for Deva path to have actual combos an basho tenin & planetary destruction also.

  • OtherWorlded

     They ain’t getting my money~ I heard this was the last storm game. I don’t know how that is going to be when the manga isn’t over yet…oh well, you guys enjoy the game, I think it is worth 60 this time around.

  • Zeus Nation

    yea man, I feel exactly the same way.

  • http://twitter.com/FinalFantasyFTW Ringgo Montaus

    Hey guys :D as soon as I heard there were 80+ character in storm 3, I made a character roster and I’m gonna post it here because like all of you I can’t contain my excitement any longer . Any feedback or comment either positive or negative is always appreciated. And If i missed some chars or there’s something wrong with it please tell me . 

    So here it is :D

    From Scans and trailers, we currently have 33 confirmed characters (I’m counting those who were literally at the scan and those confirmed for free battle. I didn’t count currently confirmed characters in hack n slash that are still not confirmed for free battle. Also , I didn’t count characters that were from storm 2 and generations that are still not revealed in scans [but my little mind is prone to forget things. So still correct me if there's a characters that's not on the list, but already confirmed in scans].)

    The 33 Characters
    1. KCM Awakening Naruto
    2. – 12. Konoha 11 with Sai excluding Sasuke.
    13. Hiruzen Sarutobi
    14. Minato Namikaze
    15. Edo Tensei Deidara
    16. Edo Tensei Sasori
    17. Darui
    18. Mifune 
    19. Edo Tensei Hanzo
    20. Masked Man
    21. (EMS) Sasuke Uchiha 
    22. Snake Kabuto (not sure)
    23. Yugito Nii 
    24. Yagura
    25. Roushi
    26. Han
    27. Utakata
    28. Fu
    29. Killer Bee
    30. Ay
    31. Gaara
    32. Kankuro
    33. Edo Tensei Hanzo

    80 – 33 = 47. 

    So we still have 47 slots for other characters. These are the top 47 (i’ve included number 0).
    0. Edo Tensei Itachi Uchiha
    1. Kakashi Hatake
    2. Tsunade 
    3. Danzo
    4. Yamato
    5. Might Guy
    6. Mei Terumi
    7. Onoki
    8. Temari
    9. Karin 
    10. Suigetsu
    11. Jugo
    12. Edo Tensei Kimimaro
    13. Rinnegan Tobi
    14. Kisame Hoshigake
    15. Konan
    16. Madara Uchiha* 
    17. Edo tensei Kinkaku
    18. Edo Tensei Ginkaku
    19. Edo Tensei Kakuzu
    20. Edo Tensei Ameyuri Ringo
    21. Edo Tensei Mangetsu Hozuki
    22. Edo Tensei Fuguki Suikazan
    23. Edo Tensei Jinin Akebino
    24. Edo Tensei Jinpachi Munashi
    25. Edo Tensei Kushimaru Kuriarare
    26. Edo Tensei Zabuza Momochi
    27. Edo Tensei Haku Yuki
    28. Edo Tensei Chiyo
    29. Edo Tensei Mu (2nd Tsuchikage)
    30. Edo Tensei 4th Kazekage
    31. Edo Tensei 3rd Raikage
    32. Edo Tensei 2nd Mizukage
    33. Omoi
    34. Edo Tensei Nagato
    35. Sage Mode Naruto
    36. Edo Tensei Pakura
    37. Edo Tensei Gari
    38. Kitsuchi
    39. Kurotsuchi
    40. Orochimaru
    41. Toroi
    42. Mitarashi Anko
    43. Unmasked Tobi*
    44. Edo Tensei Dan Kato
    45. Black Zetsu 
    46. Mitarashi Anko

    That Makes 80. But they said 80+ , so I added 9 more characters that has small posibilities of making it.

    1. Kushina Uzumaki **
    2. Sage Mode Kabuto
    3. Chojorou
    4. Kid Kakashi Hatake 
    5. Kid Obito Uchiha
    6. Cee
    7. Akatsuchi
    8. Fu Yamanaka
    9. Ao

    So that makes 89 at most.

    If they’re going for 90, White Zetsu or Maki. 

    * I think they will make the list due to fanservice/fans. That’s if the storm 3 story will not follow the manga.

    **Kushina has a possibility of making it for fanservice purposes.

    = Phew! long post! :D So that’s what i think the character roster would be. Also If you noticed, I didn’t put Hidan, 1st hokage, 2nd hokage , kirin sasuke , or the past version of naruto (WS:Rasenshuriken, etc.) , Jiraiya, Normal Kabuto and Pain in there.  It’s because storm 3 is all about the WAR. So I think characters not in the war must not be there. I know it’s sad , but how would cc2 squeeze characters like jiraiya and hidan into the story? I just don’t see happening…

    Again, Let me know if i have errors , or any incorrect things in my post. It would be appreciated :D
    Also let me know what you guys think by commenting ! :D

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    I doubt it, cause remember he wasn’t dead he was buried deep underground, I think Kakuzo will be playable without Hidan, I know its strange.

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    They say it will the story will stop covering the latest Naruto Shippuden episode, before the game come out, I am not sure what episode but it could stop somewhere 5 kages battle Madara I hope even farther I hope what do you guys think?

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Actually it will start @  Kyuubi Attack Hidden Leaf Village then the 5 kages summit arc all they to Shinobi war arc.

    Thats 95 characters in Storm 3 wow, I hoping for at least 107 – 115 or 120, but I digress having lots of characters doesn’t make the game better, its all about gameplay and Story, take Melee for example, Brawl has more characters longer story mode and more features, but Melee was still a better a game XD

  • jason bradley

     i haven’t seen EMS sasuke in the trailers or the scans.

  • broni007

    i think the story will end up at madara reveal but when the story reach the lastest anime episode, they will show a message “WARNING SPOILER AHEAD. Would you like to continue?”

    well, maybe the next story mode will be a DLC?

  • http://twitter.com/FinalFantasyFTW Ringgo Montaus

    actually, if you play trailer 4 in slow motion, gaara is battling EMS Sasuke. It’s likely EMS Sasuke because his jacket is zipped up. I’m not sure if you can post links here so you can just look it up on google. Just type ‘ storm 3 EMS Sasuke’ and you’ll see a  screenshot of him when he fights gaara

    1. Do you think the 7 swordsmen will be playable? (i hope so)
    2. Do you think Madara Uchiha will be playable?
    3. And how far do you think the story will go?
    thx bros

  • khmerack

    1. think so
    2. of course
    3. where naruto fights jinchuriki or kages vs madara at the lastest. i wish for edo release though

  • narutobleachop

    ya i saw it to. at 9:53 in the video, matsuyama says all will be playable

  • narutobleachop

    Matsuyama said it. In the Saiyan Island search type “All Six Paths of Pain Playable in Storm 2″ and go to 9:40 in the video

  • Braxton4715

    i think the akatsuki and other characters like chiyo,kimimaro,haku and zabuza will just be in edo tensei form

    i completely agree with broni. new story mode arcs need to be turned into dlc. new characters added wen they debut in the anime and same goes for the new anime adventures so we dont hav to wait a year for a game thats going to hav old stuff in it almost immediately

  • Mario Mirabile

    hey guys and girls were will the game start off at the beggining of shippuden or after pain saga and were will it stop will it finish the arc that the manga is in right now or will it stop sooner please answer

  • dubaloseven

    I heard its going up to the latest episode when it releases. Maybe they’re going to pul an Asura’s Wrath on us and make the very end as DLC.

  • dubaloseven

    More characters didn’t make Brawl bad. The development team stripping the combat of all its depth and adding randomized scrub-friendly elements made Brawl bad.

    All though I do agree more content =/= better game

  • Braxton4715

    oops mybad XD

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

     I know what you mean Brawl is an AWESOME, game, Melee was overall a better game XD

  • konanNobito

    What ever happens in the anime around febuary 20th will be the end of the game and that is probably when naruto gets done fighting itachi and nagato and when gaara seals the kage

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

     it will start at the beginning of the kage arc and end at the end of the war arc abd knowing cc2 they may have their own final battel to end the war compair to the manga which the manga has ten tails but how ever the story will end its going to be awesome i cant wait.

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

     no its going past that my friend.

    1, 5, 6, 12, 33, 34, 38, 41, 53, and 54 (Sage mode Naruto was already confirmed and he did use it several times in the war or else I’d think there’s too many Narutos as well) really have no place being there, especially if they’re copies of the previous games. I know you put them on because its likely they will be, but hopefully they won’t (unless they’re changed). Without them that’s space for at least 7 ppl not on your list such as Pakura, The cloth girl, explosive user, Omoi, Kitsuchi, Ao, Chojuro, etc. That would be much better than getting characters you can go back to your old games to play as.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/7TYZTHF3VU74LKGKHOFUHQVJEM ace

    I completely agree with you about the ones who should be taken out. And I think Karin should be included amongst them.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/7TYZTHF3VU74LKGKHOFUHQVJEM ace

    Storm 1

  • ObitoRinnegan

     Ok , I do understand u on that point ,but just tell me how can you exclude Jiraiya ? He really brought a lot in the anime , though I do not use him ,and he is really slow and bad in the game ,you just cant put him aside.

  • ObitoRinnegan

     Ohh god ,its already been stated that every character from Storm 2 / Generations will reappear.

  • Daniele Prati

     Jiraya doesen’t appear since 500’0000’0000000 chapter XD

  • Boomer6574

    It’s not going to the end of the war.

  • Boomer6574

    Those games were never announced.

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

     It will 1st start @ the beginning of the 9 tails attacking Konoha then the Kage arc till the Shinobi War arc XD

  • Naruto Uzumaki

    i don’t think the all 7 swordsmen are going to playable no madara won’t be playable until storm 4 and i think it will at least go too sasuke vs kabuto cuz you know cc2 

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

     yes it is cause nine tails mode lv.2 naruto is in the game and there not going to stop were naruto and bee fighting were the anime will be when the game comes out. and they already said that they is following the manga.

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

    and we will also know when the next trailer comes out. and it will show other playable people like madara uchiha and others so just wait and see.

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

     it will go pass that at least until the end of the war but we will get one more trailer until then we will but guesting.

  • imichigo1

    i wonder when there will be more info on storm 3? maybe tommrrow hopefuly

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

    DLC would be a good idea, but i don’t see it happening, atleast in the way you guys want. The reason is that firstly, CC2 is a capitalist money-making company; in the end, all they want is money. The process of adding DLC’s wouldn’t sustain the business…why? because DLC’s are cheaper than a full game. Imagine paying $60 for a single “add-on” to the story mode? people would go crazy. 

    A while ago, when Storm 1 was still in development, i began to study about Namco Bandai and CyberConnect2′s business tactics and organization (for curiosity). Doing that, i noticed that their way of business sucess is based on parceries and afiliations, together with high communication with the functionaries/programmers.

    We shouldn’t imagine Hiroshi sitting on his chair, in a large room, acting like a Yakuza boss, saying “Do this/Do that, bla bla bla” and the functionaries shaking their heads abruptly saying “HAI, HIROSHI-SAMA!!!” NOO, it’s not like that…

    Imagine a scenery where CC2′s heads are discussing with “Naruto” series mediatic representatives, such as VIZ Media, Shueisha, Toei Animation, Studio Pierrot, Kishimoto’s team, etc; then some guy proposes:

    “-What if we begin to continue the story mode of the game adding DLC’s? In this way, fans wouldn’t complain about the lack of content”…

    Silence on the room, then someone says: 

    “-WTF ur talking about?”

    CC2 makes Naruto games because those companies let it to happen, it’s about a contract. Many of the money acquired with the sells goes to them, and there’s a lot of presurre in this, or do you guys think that Hiroshi wake up someday, calls his friends and say: “Hey bros, let’s make a new game?” Again, it’s not like that.

    Those companies want the series to be promoted and commercialised, like a product…and DLC’s aren’t appealing as a “completely new” game.

    Another point is about the functionaries that are paid to work; The production of the franchise is divided on teams: Some work on the mechanics, some on the Animation, some in Copyrights, some in Sound, some in Graphics, Menus, etc; if they just keep adding Story Mode DLC’s, it’s obvious that some team will need to stop working in the series…these would get unmotivated…and you know the rest. The development group is like a democracy, where opinions need to be respected, and the balance needs to be maintained (Hiroshi said this in a very old Storm 2 interview).

    The last reason is about the technic limitations. It’s obvious that some people would get mad about CC2 only adding Story Mode DLC’s for the same game and not changing the gameplay mechanics. The maximum they could do is correct some bugs, remove something, add a little bit and thats it…why? because real changes can’t be made in the same system. As a programmer myself, i understand when they say that they can’t change the gameplay entirely. 

    There are hardcoded limits in specific systems that can’t be modified, and the ones which have the possibility of edition are still really complex to manage (the sub-bar and ring-out things probably took a lot of time to be implemented, yet, people complain). A single change in hardcoded files (mainly apparently simple notepad text files) could result in terrible bugs and malfunction.

    So, if you want a lot of new characters, new Story Mode Battles and new gameplay, you NEED another game. In Storm games system, the maximum they can do is add new costumes, maybe a Boss Battle, cutscenes, some chars, little tweakings in the mechanics, etc; and not an entirely new title.

    And to finish, you know…people would complain in the same way:

    “It’s just the same old game with some add-ons…CC2 is lazy, i’m not wasting $60 on a stupid DLC.”

    your an idiot your not paying 60 bucks for dlc. your paying 60 bucks for a new game with a new story the game is going to be awesome. and for those people that are naruto fans but think this game looks lame then you guys are just dumbasses. don’t come complaining over a game, like we care what you people think

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

    Are you joking?? He loves the game. Me and him get into arguments about our differing opinions. All he’s doing here is explaining why some of the expectations for DLC are not even physically possible, and he’s right. He’s trying to HELP.

    If you read the replies underneath me I hope you now understand my frustration. All you’re doing is trying to help but people misunderstand it as though you’re bashing the game. We may not agree on a lot of things, but i’ll defend anyone who is being misunderstood and insulted for no reason.

    This is exactly the persecution I get (even from you at one point) because they simply refuse to listen to reason. Now I hope you know how it feels to try and help, to try and explain how things work and still be insulted. I also hope we can just come to an understanding (if we haven’t already), because even though our opinions differ on the game, we are both just trying to help.

  • Brandon Turner

    Alright so this is my problem with the “storm” series as a whole. The GOD DAMN recycling. Admittedly SOME mechanics in generations were necessary but I just cannot understand the need for them to get rid of crucial mechanics that fans loved so much in storm one. If they had kept building on top of these mechanics then the games we have now would be spectacular, however I have a hard time calling this a series if the majority of things (excluding characters added) stay the same. Lastly CC2 only wants our money.. admit it or stay in denial. Do the math Storm 1-$60
    Storm 2-$60
    Generations-$60
    Storm 3- $60
    Total- $240!!! For essentially the same game (minus the awesome storm 1 things that everyone loved) with new characters and mechanics that could have easily been DLC..and CC2 knows that me and everyone else will be buying this game regardless of all these facts unfortunately. We as fans DESERVE MORE. Thats my 2 cents anyway.

  • funnymitchell

    don’t buy the game if you don’t like the way they make it.
    instead go make your OWN naruto game since you already know what fans want!

  • Brandon Turner

    its people like you that CC2 knows will settle. so leave.

  • funnymitchell

    if it goes to sasuke vs kabuto then they will also include 5 kage vs madara

  • funnymitchell

    i’m not leaving because  have nothing to complain about the game.
    you keep complaining if you can complain here the you can also complain somewhere else.

    Lazyness is the Cancer of our society…people’s minds became automated, primary. They’re converting into programmed machines without any kind of discernment…

  • GoldenUltima

    Crucial mechanics? Thanks for the laugh. Jutsu Clashes, Wall Fighting, Long Ougis and Awakening Ougis were nothing but fanservice and did not contribute to a balanced fighting game. Jutsu Clashes are a complete waste of money and time from CC2, 

    Wall fightings are even worse (besides, naruto is not about wall fighting. Tell me 10 fights in Naruto Shippuden that the characters stay in the walls for half of the fight) 

    Long Ougis are just washed up and Stretched for the sake of eye candy.Awakened Ougis just make things unbalanced. In awakening you’re faster, stronger, better in every way and you also have an Ougi? Yeah that’s not a balanced fighting game

    The Multiple Jutsus per char. were cool, I admit, but they don’t make much difference for a majority of the characters

    The face punches were about comedy. Naruto Shippuden dropped the comedy a lot.

    Storm 2 has more content than Storm 1. Boss battles, new characters, etc. (don’t know much since I didn’t play it)

    Generations was just something to give a chance for the Xbox 360 users to play as the PTS characters and make up for the time between Storm 2 and 3. It still had more balancing and mechanics.

    Storm 3 has a big story mode (Hiroshi said it’s about 30 hours of story mode), Hack and Slash, Ultimate Decision, A site says that you can play as the evil guys in Hack and Slash, giving even more replay value, There’s awakening Actions to make the Awakenings unique and 2 ways of going into awakening to make a better difference between characters, in a video of Comic Con or whatever happened before Jump Festa you can see Naruto double Jumping (he didn’t dash after that), There’s Stage Interaction, There are Ring-Outs ( even if it’s not a great thing) and stuff we still don’t know, aside from new characters

    Storm 3 is FAR from a copy of the other games, Just like Storm 2 is much different than 1. But you can say Generations wasn’t a big improvement from Storm 2 (it wasn’t even supposed to be)

    If Storm 3 had jutsu clashes everyone would be like “OMMGEEEE NEW MEKUNECKS, DIZ GAEM IS SO THE BEZT!!! XDDDDDDDDDD

  • ObitoRinnegan

     No one could have said it better .I couldnt agree more .Finally someone that is not jerking off on Storm 1

  • NARUTOxANKO

     Dont complain so much about Cc2 its not easy to creat a aweseome game :/

    The Naruto games form Cc2 are awesome but the  community destroy this :/ with spamming and so on and im  happy about the idea in generation with the sub bar this was a  wonderful idea to play this game on COMBOS not with stupid jutsu spamming some people still play with stupid spamm character and unfair supports but thats not Cc2 blame.  Iplayed storm 1 as well  the game is Ok nice campagne and so on but this game has not a online mode. Think about a Online mode in storm 1 that would be the biggest noob spammer game ever xD  rapid fire controller,ultimate spamm,jutsu spamm and so on the same as storm 2 and storm 2 was a disaster Online !.
     
    But it would be nice to run in Konoha like in storm 1.

    Cc2 has advanced  with Naruto storm !  think about generation finally a game there we can play with combos.

    Think about storm 3 Cc2 put many new features in this game !  and they show us not 100% from the game !! 
    so dont complain about  storm 3. We will meet online people with unfair supports like hidan,pain and as main character onoki but thats not Cc2 blame thats the community  :/

    But im sure, this game is going to be more as AWESOME !!!

    Yes dude, it’s frustrating to see how people are so lazy to read. It’s like they built a system in their heads that seeks for specific words, then they automatically assume things that doesn’t have anything to do with the actual point, it’s ridiculous. And yeah, i really understand you now, i’m sorry for calling you a “hater” in the past.

  • timanel1

    I really hope this game have Sage Mode Kabuto , EMS Sasuke , Edo Itachi , Edo Nagato , Edo Kages ,  Madara and Rinnegan Tobi . I know its asking for too much but damn my dream is to play with that characters..and if the game ends in gaara vs kages , why have jinchuuriki moves that are used vs naruto and bee ? so much confusion right now..

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

    My point was something like that. Many people here don’t have a clue of what is a game development; it sucks that they ended up thinking that i was bashing Storm 3.

    I was wondering…What if CC2 worked like Spike and THQ? Making games just for some kind of “obligation” instead of actual passion for the series they hold the copyrights? forgetting completely about the franchise and not releasing a game for years? Making dumb decisions all the time? Don’t giving a f*** about what the fans want and complain?

    What Anime-Based game franchise gave more visual/technical immersion than the Storm Series? In the middle of the Next-Gen, we’re still seeing glitchy pseudo “Anime-Based” games that could be a lot better (One Piece: Pirate Warriors is a excession though), but Storm games are in a totally different level, that’s a franchise that depicts a Anime in the way that it’s supposed to be depicted.

    We need to agree that it’s not perfect, and that there are a lot of flaws there, but yet, Storm Series are 100x better than most of the other Anime-Based ones, it’s a fact.

    The day when CC2 gets the rights from great Animes, such as Dragon Ball, Bleach, One Piece, Yu Yu Hakusho, Saint Seiya (i played the PS3 exclusive “Saint Seiya: Sanctuary Battle”, and as a huge fan of the classic series, i say that mechanically, it was like playing a ancient PS2 game), etc; THEN we will see a real game. 

    The contracts with Spike, Sony and Dimps are ending soon, i pray to God that CC2 get the rights after that.

  • 202jkdc

    Hey check out my suggestion in the comment area in the topped 10 naruto games. I would like to hear what you think abbout it. Thanks in advanced if you do

  • sasukeuchiha1808

    Storm 1 was the best game, because of the diversity in the jutsu and game play. It seems when they add new stuff to improve the game, they take away key elements like wall fights. I play xbox but my brother has a ps3 and i went out and bought storm 1 just for the wall fighting and story mode free roam. Its true CC2 do a good job of the game, but they also need to listen to the fans a lot more. Tbh CC2 are actually just lazy in terms of adding things.

  • jason bradley

    or they could give us naruto characters that we want to play as,after all this is a naruto game.

  • jason bradley

    it will start right after narutos victory against nagato and so far from a story point of view it will go up to gedo mazou vs choji,but with the revealing of the jinchuriki and a certain leaked image on the cc2 website people think it will go quite far into the war.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/SHO2NFZXUKIZHMRFMKBLMOQCEI Tobi

    CC2 can and will add things to the game even if it doesn’t make sense. For example In Generations KCM was added to the game even though the games story doesn’t even cover Naruto getting that mode so adding the jinchuuriki might be them doing the same thing.

  • jason bradley

    they have probably still to reveal it,hell they haven’t even shown sasuke vs danzo yet.they will be shown soon don’t worry.

  • Khalill D. Baker

    EMS sask, edo madara k, rinnegan tobi, seem like givens. 
    I wonder if there will be a form / costume for Obito.

  • James

    I agree

  • Simon Pascual

    I just hope this is the last game of the series because another set of storylines into another game(Storm4) would just be NOT cool for alot of fans. They should include all the players for once already or the  company should make a downloading thing or something for a fair prize like other games have done and make more affortable for the fans( buy/download more characters or custumes): it would save time.

  • OtherWorlded

     Everything is alright, just been very busy lately. Finally Back~ and free of work and anything else. Just full of free time~

  • Sigvon SinTei

    I definitely agree with @yahoo-VVCK6ASWYW67C6DIO3OUCY3IME:disqus. Storm series is the best anime based game. Actually CC2 are actual fans like us. They want what we want. Though there are some flaws in the game and unfair players all around, it is still the best when it comes to the immersion of anime to the game.

    Sometimes the game, like in storm 2 when pain destroyed konoha, was actually better than the anime and manga. And it’s not only that scene. I’m sure that Storm 3 would have much much more scenes like that.

    Kyubi’s attack
    Naruto vs Kyubi
    Kage vs Sasuke
    Sasuke vs Naruto
    Kakashi vs Zabuza
    Chouji vs Gedou Mazo

    Those clips, those scenes, I can say that it’s better than the anime. Better than I imagined in the manga.

    And there’s a lot more to come or to see.

    The gameplay is what I want. I love the gameplay of the storm series. If they were to change the gameplay like tekken or Marvel vs capcom, it won’t be as fun as the storm.

    Also I wouldn’t like it if they were to change the gameplay back to Storm 1 or Storm 2 or even in generations. I think Storm 3 would have the best “Storm” gameplay.

    Weather you guys want to accept it or not, CC2 improves the gameplay of storm series. It might be minimal, or some glitches may come as a result, but still it has improve. CC2 is not doing a lousy job. 

    It’s a STORM game.
    The gameplay is STORM.
    I’m paying for a STORM game!

    Not another franchise!

    Of course there are some aspects of the game that we miss. Like jutsu clashes and longer Ultimates. And there are others that we want to have, like character creation and stage transition.

    It can’t be perfect. But I still enjoy the games that CC2 made and will make. :) )

  • OtherWorlded

     I agree dude, some people don’t know the difference between ~complaining and constructive criticism~

    I am one of those people that ACTUALLY READ YOUR COMMENT, so I know that you are still getting the game despite of what lacks. I respect your opinion and since I played Storm 1 & 2 plus the demo of Generations, I know exactly what you mean.

  • OtherWorlded

     Dear Funnymitch, if only it were that simple. What keeps a studio or company alive? What created cellphones, smartphones, everything we have, that has be complained about and improved on.

    As a hungry mouth does not get feed, the same could be said people who are not contempt with something and they do not say a word. I love peoples ideas or opinions, those with reasonable ideas or opinions I mean.

    Example: You got the PS1-PS2-PS3 each better than the last. A company like CC2 is NOT based on one person, but a group of people with an idea. Those people include the fans, the people buying the product.

    Oh, sure it is easy to tell someone that if they don’t like something, they don’t have to buy it when all they are doing is saying something that has been said time and time before.

    CC2 encourages fans to voice their ideas or opinions. This is how improvements are made, NOT from others like yourself screaming ” I LOVE EVERYTHING THING THEY THROW AT ME, I WON”T SAY A THING. or as you say, Complain…

    Basically what Brandon was trying to say is that he wishes the Jutsu and Overall fighting was more like CC2′s previous work, not Storm 2 or Gen, but Storm 1, which the fighting was the closest to the anime.

  • OtherWorlded

     Very true, the story for Storm 3 will be very Explosive, but the overall fighting for Vs. Mode will lack because of all the recycled content. I would still say it is worth $60 for the story and all the extra content they added, but as for characters with new jutsu, techniques and awakenings that is a different story.

  • OtherWorlded

     well said ^ ^

  • OtherWorlded

     Nicely put, why is it every time I put something like this I get rage mail from the same people~ Some people hate for others to have an opinion, but yeah I don’t have anything neg to say about Storm 3. The roaming is like Storm 2, fighting is like Generations…ummm some characters are recycled from generations, but that was expected.

    The story will be amazing, CC2′s specialty~ If you want to play as your favorite heroes this would be a recommended buy.~ ENJOY

    Hey… where have you been the last few months? I’ve been arguing against Storm 1 since the beginning.

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

    All people want are gimicks. It’s sad, but true. They don’t want true content or mechanics that actually add to the depth and balancing of the game. Just 90 degree camera angle changes (wall fights) and Ultimate Jutsu you could leave, go cook a nice steak or order a pizza, eat, come back, and it’s still going. They’re satisfied with their Storm 1 with 25 characters, an easy 10 hour story mode, and… ummm… free battle?

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

    Don’t listen to fans? His comment has 4 times as many like as yours. Just because we are less vocal generally, doesn’t mean we are the minority who dislike Storm 1 for its lack of content.

    Wall fights key? It’s a 90 degree camera angle change that adds nothing, absolutely nothing, to the fighting mechanics. What strategic purpose does it serve? None. It’s just eye candy. Admit you only care about “oohs” and “ahhs” and move along (yes, this is an insult, as this comment is not at all logical whatsoever).

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

    If only people who keep saying the story will follow the manga realized this. I mean, all they have to do is play Generations to know KCM is nowhere in story mode, yet he’s in the game. So BM will likely be the same, but the story will not cover that battle.

    dude how can the boss batles of naruto vs 6jinchuriki itachi vs sage kabuto 5kage vs madara naruto vs tobi masked naruto vs 10 tails if they are kilometers away in the anime wtf?would you as a game developer make boss batles of something you ve saw only on some black and white pages?wtf?

  • http://twitter.com/vladradu7 vlad radu

    ps you ve forgotten itachi nagato vs naruto bee

  • broni007

    they did make movesets of 6 jinchuriki that have only been seen on manga, so why not make another character like sage kabuto/madara? they can take their movesets from the manga

    also about boss battles on story mode, maybe naruto vs 6 jinchuriki onward won’t be in, just imagine

    oh and i think itachi nagato vs naruto bee is too short to be a boss battle

  • 202jkdc

    This is a reply to Alex about the comment about wall climbing. Would you want it back if they didn’t change the camera to where as one player can wall and ceiling climb while the other player can remain on the ground if he or she chooses? In this way it could become a mechanical way to strategize a fight ex. Itachi throws a fireball while Sasukes running towards him but instead of blocking or ninja moving to the side he jumps up to ceiling to avoid it then pulling off a move real fast to try to connect with or whatever.

  • 202jkdc

    I couldn’t reply to otherworlded comment but I give a 2nd agree about story mode and vs but it might be something surprising about everybody. I hope so but doubt it

  • http://twitter.com/vladradu7 vlad radu

    it is one thing to make a moveset for a character:MADARA who will be in 80% but sage kabuto won t be in because it s just too far in  the manga.And as I sayed it is one thing to make a moveset and another thing to make a boss batle for that you have to actualy see how the visuals look in the anime so you can make them as appropriate  as it could be

     well first of all nine tail mode naruto lv.2 is in the game if they wasnt going to follow the manga then why he is in the game then so before you say that they not going to follow the manga look at your facts men. and when the last trailer comes out thats your proof.

    everybody thats saying that storm 3 is it following the manga read this.   

    CyberConnect 2′s Ultimate Ninja Storm series has always been
    eye-catching, ever since its debut in 2008. But, three sequels later,
    what can Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 possibly offer that’s
    new?

    Jason Enos, senior global brand manager at Namco Bandai explained that
    the latest iteration of the anime franchise is meant to appeal more to
    fans of the original manga series. “One of the focuses of this game for
    developer CyberConnect2 is to bring the perfect balance of the manga and
    the anime,” he explained.

    Fans of the franchise will probably agree with Enos’ assessment that
    “the anime is more lighthearted while the manga delves a little deeper
    and gets a little more serious.” To that point, he 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.”

    It’s clear that presentation is the focus of UNS3, as the gameplay is
    very similar to previous games in the series. Boss fights, such as one
    against Nine Tails, promises to be more “epic” than ever–a rather
    difficult feat, given the series’ history. One difference I noticed was
    that Awakening mode can now
    be turned on at any time with the drawback of not being able to use it
    again later. In the previous titles, you had to be at low health to
    activate it.

    Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 arrives on the PS3 and Xbox 360
    early next year

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

    no you the one going to be saying wow you was right when the next and last trailer comes out soon.

  • 202jkdc

    They should’ve gave every character a traditional awakening ( holding down chakra button) and instant awakening. Traditional could be like a mini awakening to change the character moveset, jutsu etc. and instant for their transformation real awakening. Ex. Naruto traditional awakening would be sage mode and his instant would be nine tails chakra. That would satisfy a lot of fans that what new moves for characters that didn’t get any in generations while still being able to keep the old moves that other fans like and don’t want to be took away for new ones. Play as your character and start with old moves, don’t want those moves? Traditional awaken into new moves and if you want to go back into your old moves do the traditional awakening again to switch back and forth. That would be tight and lower most of those extra slots for Naruto and Sasuke. I can’t believe they count 4 different types of Naruto different characters.

  • 202jkdc

    For those that like to hear about other people ideas check out the comments in the top 10 naruto post. I wrote a long idea and would like to hear what anybody thinks of it and if it would be possible. Let me know if you like or dislike.

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

    You’ve got to be kidding me…

    He means exactly what he says “the plot will follow the manga in TONE and STORYTELLING.” I’ve already posted this very same interview and explained exactly what it means. Nowhere does it say that they will follow the manga’s story as in beyond the anime. Nowhere. You are skewing his words for your own convenience. You obviously do not know how to read and interpret words. You live in a fantasy world that won’t fall until the game is released and you’re ego crumbles. 

    Regardless, CC2 themselves said ANIME. NB are a bunch of idiots who don’t sit there and monitor CC2 24/7. They lie all the time, including about the roster because they don’t get their facts straight.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/7TYZTHF3VU74LKGKHOFUHQVJEM ace

    Matsuyama has said before that they thought about making 2 on 2 like Tekken Tag or something but didn’t know how to make it work. I suggested they have the 2nd character take on all supporting roles at the cost of varying amounts of chakra, having life bars that regenerate half damage while tagged out, can get damaged appropriately when tagged out and supporting, switches with R1 and does support jutsu with L1, while also having the option of auto switching on launches (more like SfxT than Tekken Tag). Does that sound like something possible within the confines of the current system? I thought it would, but I’m not sure.

  • pjrene

    I totally agree. I also think that the Jinchurikis are “Bonus” characters too, because they won´t be featured into the actual story within the game. As for Madara Uchiha it´s… complicated, because he will most likely show up in the Anime when the game releases. EMS Sasuke is also “confirmed” i guess and they might just add Kabuto´s Sage Mode too. With so much characters going on, the game will feel fresh once again, because even if the combos are just tapping the circle button, it was way more dynamic than that. For me every character feels different and i hope we can enjoy the new characters as well as the old ones.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003901522824 Jaber Almarzouqi

    well said…. that’s how i think….as you said BM naruto and EMS sasuke will likely be in the game but that doesn’t mean the story will follow the manga just like KCM naruto in generations…..in storm 3 i think the story will stop at raikage and tsunade confrontation…

  • broni007

     sorry i forgot about kakashi vs ninja swordmen..

  • broni007

    i have a feeling that they released scans and trailers based on anime only to avoid spoilers, maybe the story will go further than our expectation without their confirmation on scan or trailer?

    so what i want to say is they will include storyline further than they confirmed?

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

    I hope you know that CC2 said that there would only be 9 boss battles. 

  • broni007

    i don’t know about that so let’s just put kakashi vs 7 swordmen and remove edo kage-10 tails battle

  • pjrene

    You´re kidding right? You think they gonna stop at a battle that´s not even a serious fight against the enemy? They totally gonna go for the Edo Tensei Kage fight, because that´s where the Anime will be when the game comes out and also 2 or so episodes after the game came out there will be the summoning of Madara Uchiha. They might even add that as the final battle. If the Anime gets some double episodes with no pause after that it´ll be very likely that this fight is airing when the game comes out. Also Madara Uchiha is such a high demanded character and i also get why, because he is the fricking strongest character in the series yet and ppl wanna play as him in the new game.

  • pjrene

    So many might wonder how far the story mode will take us. I made a simple prediction which fights are going to be included, i hope it gives some a picture of what we might be able to go through in the new and final installment of Naruto Storm and what characters are to expect (not counting the “Bonus” characters like Biju Mode Naruto, EMS Sasuke, Sage Kabuto, Jinchurikis):

    ok then. umm, this question is for saiyan or alex please if its ok (since i feel like their the smartest about game developing). if your reading this, i wanna know what can we expect from storm 3. what have cc2 been REALLY doing for the past 2 years. and do they really care about us fans, or is it just plain money??

    thanks

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

     thats what i was saying cause its not going to stop in the middle of the war. look at storm 1 i know the first naruto ended before the storm 1 came out. it started form the begining to the end and storm 2 came out pain arc end in august and storm 2 came out in october that year. so storm 3 coming out march 5 so the anime should be around when gaara and onoki fighting second mizukage. and i heard on some web site that the manga readiers will be happy and i wonder why would they say that.

  • broni007

    And it’ll be dumb if the story ends on gaara vs mizukage..the ending will be just like ultimate ninja 4

  • jay saint

    at 1st i thought 72 to 80 thats not that much but thats 80 shippuden characters only

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/SHO2NFZXUKIZHMRFMKBLMOQCEI Tobi

    After I thinking about I think we should only count characters that have been shown battling in free mode in scans or videos as confirmed. The details of how ultimate decision works hasn’t been fully explained so we can’t just assume the characters shown in story as confirmed like the the Sevens Swordsman of the Mist or Ginkaku and Kinkaku are playable outside of the story since they actually been shown outside of the story yet. In the end this is just my opinion you are free to agree or disagree with me. 

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

    Correction…Spamm=Spam
    Just want to point that out :)
    But I totally agree with you…it’s not CC2′s fault for creating the characters. It’s the community for spamming them. I remember for generations, Kabutomaru was like the Madara for Storm 3. Everyone wanted him, but when the game came out and people played as him, they hated him and blamed CC2 for it! How is it their fault when they put in a character you were bitching to them about if they don’t put him in, and you turn out to hate it?!?!…..just doesn’t make sense ya know?

    I want Futaba as a playable character…….

  • GoldenUltima

    not like they have cameras lol they don’t know what they feel or do but

    1: They have been developing the game of course. it takes way longer than you think to make new stuff. even a simple jutsu can take days just to be made.

    2: They do care about money. I mean why else would they even start a company? But you can say they care about fans since they listen to them (unless they ask for stupid things like create a ninja , Jutsu Clashes, etc.) and actually enjoy Naruto.

  • 202jkdc

    Some of them ideas might be stupid to you but that doesn’t mean that they are stupid cause they already had jutsu clashes in previous naruto games and in one of those interviews with cc2 president they talked about create a ninja. I personally don’t care for those ideas myself but I wouldn’t say throw it out because I want something else besides that. Its like insulting those that do want that in a naruto game.

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

    Yes, it’s possible, cause it doesn’t change the engine completely (most of that would be about  adding a new animation and “unlocking” some editable hardcoded keys in notepad text files, then creating new “scripts” {things that are supposed to happen in pre-determined moments}). Another probably possible thing is the addition of Team Ougis like those from Accel 2). 

     Many next-gen 3D games (for Consoles and PC) possess systems that were used in the Atari era. Many of the base is still the same.

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

    Idk know what they’ve been doing, but my knowledge is more based on logic then actually knowing about game development. i am in no way saying it’s easy, because heck, it’s difficult as hell. But if Storm 2 took 2 years to develop, with no rehashing, why is Storm 3 using 75% of the same content after 2 1/2 years worth of development? Their’s inside knowledge then there’s logic. Logic tells me they did not work nearly as hard on storm 3 as they did on Storm 2.

Sounds like you have experience or have knowledge about electronics gaming engineering so I would really appreciate your opinion.

  • pjrene

    I don´t think the idea of creating your own Shinobi would fit in well with the Storm Series, but i think that it would fit perfectly into a RPG Naruto Game. It might even be an Online Multiplayer RPG. If it´s well designed and the setting is wise chosen than it could make an awesome game. They could just set it in the timeline where the previous wars took place. Kishimoto could even write the scripts after he finished the Manga, if he is not too eager to start a new Manga. It always crossed my mind that the Naruto lore would make a perfect MMO, because of the variety of different Styles, Techniques, Factions and Landscapes.

    Its not impossible. Who knows. I bet the person who made up naruto probably talks to cc2 president and whoever makes the animes and they go from there on how far they take the story. But I don’t think think cc2 president will go against what he stated in one of those interviews saying that it will follow the anime until the time it is released.

    Hey I totally agree with your comment and would be boosted if they had the rights to bleach and made it like storm. Bankai

  • 202jkdc

    Wouldn’t be surprised if some of the characters have more than one slot being counted as another character when its the same one with just different moves.
    Example Sage Naruto
    Nine tail fox Naruto
    Bijuu Naruto
    all being considered 3 different characters when its just Naruto with different moves.
    5 Kage summit Sasuke
    EMS Sasuke
    Kisame with Samehada
    Kisame without Samehada
    Killa bee
    killa bee with Samehada
    I wouldn’t even be surprised if they make Konoha 11 with new moves in war costumes and keep the Konoha 11 from generations and give them separate slots considering them as different characters. If so that would blow me.
    Masked man
    Tobi
    Etc. I already have a big feeling Naruto will be like this but others will be 2 many

  • 202jkdc

    Man I was wanting that move in generations. Why they couldn’t have add it as a charged up jutsu?(holding down the jutsu button) Then when his opponent gets close he can stab him or her with that rod and a quick cinema pops up with those rinnegan eyes. My bad I was thinking how it would be for Pain not Nagato. He could change his arms into missles after he grabs his opponent like how he was about to do Killa Bee

    What is 75% rehashed in this game when it has a whole NEW story mode,and that’s about 50% of the game if not more and I’m not going to mention other things these storm game is going to have that previous never had. Just do your research back to July to remember everything they’ve only reveal up until this moment because remember cc2 president said in one of those interviews that their not going to show you everything and some of the stuff in generations they probably worked on as well(sub bar,chakra air dash, combo cancel etc. )and they split the company into 2 groups the number of people got lowered to accomplish more things for the game even though I don’t think that’s the case because after generations the team formed backed into one to finish the game and someone said its already confirmed to have 9 boss battles(more than storm2) even though I don’t know if that part is true. I know this game is not 75% of the same.

  • GoldenUltima

    Rehashing? I don’t think they did that. The only thing that’s the same is the way the characters look   (and they can’t change that really. I mean if they completely changed the graphics it wouldn’t be a storm game anymore) and SOME combos. I mean do you really think they’d give Minato and Choji a whole new moveset when they’ve done nothing new? But they did tweak them. There’s a good chance Choji’s UJ might change. If you notice they didn’t even put his awakening action and they did the same to PTS Naruto in the last Comic Con or whatever it was. Also they’re trying to be secretive because a lot of people complained that they revealed everything for Storm G and the game felt boring to play. I doubt a lot of characters are going to stay 100% the same. I mean they said they’re at least tweaking characters that didn’t get much screen time in the war and considering they received so many complaints about crappy ougis and that they’re doing more cinematic and good ougis they might change the old character’s old ougis

    There’s a lot more new than old:

    Story mode is completely new
    The Boss battles are new
    Hack and slash is completely new
    The Awakening Action is new
    Ring-Outs are new
    Environmental destruction is new
    There are 2 ways to awaken
    There are new maps
    There are new characters 
    And more things we don’t know about

    My point is, the only thing rehashed is some of the characters and stages. That’s it. I mean they’re trying to make 20 + new characters and if they screw up fans will eat them alive, because a lot of new characters are fan favorites. They need to put a lot of effort into making Madara and Edo Itachi and characters that fans love the most because if they half ass them, people will get really angry considering they have a bigger fanbase than other characters. I think that’s why they made Storm 3 now. So they can focus on most of the war and in the next game, since naruto is ending, they can make characters that they didn’t make playable in the other games, and if they screw up some characters they can fix them next game

  • GoldenUltima

    Because they have completely different movesets even being the same character. It’s like a whole new character. And why does that even bother people? It doesn’t waste space. I even heard people say that some characters cannot be playable because a whole bunch of Naruto’s would take their spot. And it’s really sad.

    And Storm 2 had NO rehash with less development time. So what’s your point? 75, 50, 25% it makes no difference. 

    Storm 2: 2 years, maybe 5% rehash (Kakashi and Tsunade’s grabs are all that come to mind, and Tsunade barely fought as well btw but still got a new moveset). 

    Storm 3: 2 1/2 years, mostly the same characters, mostly the same movesets (no, the old characters won’t get new Ultimates unless they showed something new) maps are and always have been re-skins, ring-outs are cheap wins, environmental destruction is HIGHLY limited and looks very poor, boss battles are too quick, easy, and reliant on QTEs, only the 2nd way to awaken is new, Story mode will likely be far too easy and repetitive just as it always has been. Only things that are worthy are the 20-25 new characters (Storm 2 had 42 new characters) and the Hack N Slash (which is already overused in games to begin with). 

    So… yeah, there are a few things but even if they weren’t mostly terrible as I believe they are imo, those few only make up in essence about 25% of the game. The 60 or so characters from previous games, similar movesets, mostly the same maps, and mostly the same mechanics make up the other 75% since they are what take up the bulk of your time ultimately once the story mode is over and done with.

    I remember everything even before GoldenUltima just listed them. Doesn’t matter, know why?
     
    How is a 15 hour or so (based on Storm 1/2) story mode 50% of the game? So the ENTIRE game, from any new modes to free battle to online will only last 30 hours? Lol, do the math please. The story mode is barely 10-15% (if that) of the entire game and it’s play/replay value. Even if you’re someone who plays the story mode 5 times over, it’s still the same content each time. Online, with it’s limitless access to anyone and everyone, is a different experience each time you pick up that controller. You play different people, with different playstyles, interact with them and friends, and just rage or have a good time without it ever being the same experience twice.

  • GoldenUltima

    (for some reason i can’t reply to your other posts)

    What mechanics were new from Storm 1 to 2?

    Matsuyama already said the story mode is going to be 30 hour one

    They did a lot of the work with only half of the team

    Even if Ring Outs are bad it took effort to make

    They balanced supports and now they can die and stay on the field giving more realism

    But whatever. Rehashed or not I don’t care really. I’ll buy Storm 3 and love it.

    Not really in the mood to discuss this now

    If CC2 and Bandai gave us DLC again for free just like Storm 1. with new characters everytime and some missions.

  • NARUTOxANKO

    Yes i know. If Cc2 Anko Mitarashi in the game i would play with her because she is my favourite. I dont care when Cc2 make anko strong or weak i would play with her. love her so much <3 anko <3 <3 <3
    I cant understand the comunity. Everyone want madara uchiha but i promise you if Cc2 make madara weak nobody want to play him because he is WEAK most of the comunity play with OP character like sasuke susanoo, 5-kage naruto and so on i use taka or hebi because he looks cooler i dont care about how strong a character is i want to play with the character i like, but most of them use neji,lee and so on -.-. Thats sad…I mean the point is to use a character wich you like and have fun in the game with nice combos and so on you know what i mean :) . But ok i will have fun if they put Anko Mitarashi in the game, because then i can play finally in a naruto storm game as my favourite (love) character <3.

  • OtherWorlded

     I am not one to always agree with you, but this time Alex….I do. It is common sense and it is harder for people that ride CC2′s or Naruto dic to know.

    Some people can’t be helped, they don’t really understand logic and hate when you give them facts.

    Kids just don’t care if they are getting ripped off or cheated in any way. Because Naruto is clapped on the cover a majority of them will turn a blind eye to the truth, to the flaws, to what could of been.

    They don’t really understand how a company works, especially the ones saying, “cut them some slack!” They have a job, they are getting paid well to do the job, so I will not cut them any slack for making quick changes to make an easy buck.

  • daewoo94

    @vladisimo93:disqus chill with the “stupid” and the “retarded” cracks. Ever stop and think that the person who commented might not speak english as their primary language? Ever stop to think that they might be trying to comment by trying to share their excitement? No you probably haven’t thought about that. You’re incredibly narrow view on their comment is probably preventing you from making coherent thought. 

  • 202jkdc

    let them know because I don’t think they know what they talking about. Thinking what they know is different from knowing what you know. I couldn’t reply to theirs either but I think its unless because they might be stubborn idk but to Alex math was my best subject in school which was about a decade ago and that other guy I’m not a kid LOL. Peace to all though. Agree with you all the way Golden.

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

    Hey dude, take a look at the “Top 10 Naruto Games of All Time” entry. I answered your question.

  • 202jkdc

    Hey thanks for checking it out and liking it. I appreciate your reply and I like your idea as well. Its good to know it is possible coming from you who knows about computer game engines. Man that would be tight. I really the part you threw in about the anbu hunting you LOL that would be a hassle and enjoyable at the same time(watch where you go they might have a trap in the woods waiting for you) MAN that’s the type of Naruto game I want to have. The replay value would be tremendous. Thanks again and it feels good to see somebody has the same idea as I. Like you said lets just wait and see want happens. Peace

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

    I respect that. If you enjoy the game for what it is, then fine. All I’m trying to do is inform so that people can make a “sound” decision using all the facts, and if they decide to get the game after considering everything then that’s their right. I only get upset when people refuse to admit the game’s major faults. I plan on getting the game too. I just don’t have any high hopes for anything special. 

    Where did he say 30 hours? And even if he did, how much do you really think cutscenes will take up? Or running back and forth aimlessly? No really, give me a reasonable estimate. If it is 30 hours, my reasonable guess is 10+. 

    Death to supports is iffy to me. On one hand, it might promote better timing and less spamming of supports but on the other you can be put at a huge disadvantage when your support is randomly hit. Also, camping is much more prevalent in singles (I’ve played both metas extensively). I’m afraid people’s fears will make them camp and guard > counter dash a lot more often rather then rely on supports. That to me is a lot more frustrating and less fun.

  • 202jkdc

    No I mean when I read 80 characters I’m thinking 80 different people not 2 or 3 or 4 of the same character being counted as a different character. 4 naruto cool but why counted that as 4 characters instead of just 1. Its not a different character its the same character with different moves or abilities or whatever. I’ll just expect like 40 to 50 different characters and if its more than that it’ll be alright. Can you understand my view? Peace

  • 202jkdc

    How about Zetsu? Do you think their going to leave him out? I think they should finally include him cause we seen him in action wood style. They could make him with both of his parts white and black together as one and some moves could have him split like having the white one break off running towards his opponent to grab doing that chakra stealing move or something. I’m sure cc2 can make up some stuff related to his powers. Like his UJ could suck you under the ground and 1000 white attack you or something.

  • 202jkdc

    Well okay. What are some of the changes that they should make to have you satisfied?

  • 202jkdc

    @pjrene you gotta check out my idea and Felipe idea in the comments section in the top 10 naruto game posting. I think you’ll like it. If you read them leave a reply, I would like to see what you think about them. Peace

  • 202jkdc

    I think they should just tell people in a paragraph how some things will be in the game with a few pictures and a demo because I think all these videos and do spoil the excitement when playing with a character you never played with before but already know most of his moves because you seen them on video. Mifune,Hanzo,and Darui won’t seem like new characters to me when I unlock them. Might leave this thing alone. I did that for a while when I heard about ring outs because that disappointed me but I wanted to see if something else was added that I might like and yeah that jinchuriki battle mode sounds nice. Would’ve been more boosted about it if I never came back to spoil myself then see it in the game surprised. Hope cc2 didn’t reveal the best changes to storm3 so I can still have that feeling. Might just jump straight to comments next time but its more complaints now than it was at first which was a lot of ideas which made create a disquss to comment to see if others like or dislike my ideas. Anyways I see your view and I’m gone. Peace

  • Fernando Ramirez

    A Naruto game with out Jiraiya and Orochimaru? Haaahahahahah

  • OtherWorlded

     I don’t feel like posting them, it doesn’t matter now…at the end of the day they are not making the game for people like me, people that want big changes-

    They are making it for those that will buy it just because it is called Naruto-

    CC2 are professionals who have been doing this for years-

    After you go to college and learn how to do stuff like this, it is not as hard as some might think, especially when you have team from which everyone has a job to do-

    Could go more into detail, but just ENJOY THE GAME!!! As I have been saying it is worth a good $60-

    What I have to say doesn’t really matter anymore- :)
