Naruto Storm Revolution introduces new guard break and counter attack mechanics. The image below shows one of the item slots is replaced by the guard break attack. Pressing the UP button on the d-pad will break the guard of the opponent, knocking him or her unconscious. This gives you, the player, the opportunity to unleash a deadly attack to inflict serious damage! There is a limit, however, on the amount of times it can be used. In regards to the counterattack, if an opponent is about to land an attack on you, pressing R2+Square (on PS3) will knock them unconscious, rendering them helpless and sealing their support. Timing will be key here and as you may have noticed in the video below, a counter attack is a chakra-consuming action. We hope to have more information as soon as it breaks right here on Saiyan Island!
The following video shows the counter attack and guard break. The same few seconds of footage is repeated 3 times for each, twice at normal speed and once in slow motion.
Thanks Nodoka Miyazaki and Darkpapa for the info!
