Naruto Storm 4 Road to Boruto: Key Characters Not Playable, English Sub Trailer

The latest trailer for Naruto Storm 4: Road to Boruto has been released in English sub fashion! It shows free battle with Naruto, Sasuke, Boruto, Mitsuki, and Sarada. Story mode is also shown, with characters Momoshiki, Kinshiki, Yurui and Shikadai. In a surprising reveal on Twitter, Bandai Namco Entertainment responded to Naruto fan Christopher Osagie on whether those characters would be playable. The answer was no – key villains Momoshiki and Kinshiki along with the Hidden Cloud Village’s Yurui, Shikamaru/Temari’s son Shikadai, and Adult Konohamaru will NOT be playable in the Road to Boruto expansion to Naruto Storm 4. They will be story mode characters only. Metal Lee, Rock Lee’ son, will also not be playable.

A specific reason was not provided, but it was mentioned playable characters are not always easy to create. In this case, we think Shikadai would have been a great alternative costume to young Shikamaru. Same goes for Metal Lee. Yurui, Momoshiki, and Kinshiki are already opponents that must be battled so we would anticipate them to have a decent moveset created already. Very unfortunate missed opportunity that these characters will not be playable! In good news, there will be other characters that will be included. Who are they? Aside from Mecha Naruto, we aren’t sure yet as they have not been announced, but hope to have additional information as soon as it’s available right here on Saiyan Island.

    *Ahem* First

  • LightSpdAeon

    Expected as much. Hope they put Lars back in because why not.

  • OMEGABOSSKING

    wow 🙁 but i wasn’t expecting much anyways.

  • Sephiroth

    And also I’d like to call BS….Xeno > Storm.

  • Sephiroth

    I knew something was gonna be bad about this DLC. Which is also why im glad I got rid of Storm 4 after the 3rd dlc pack

  • Where Gundams lie

    They put mecha naruto back so… why not?

  • Where Gundams lie

    Lets make a dlc, yes… and we will put only 1 new character, mitsuki, yes…. the bad ones? nah, we wont make them playable, in fact, we should remove kaguya and madara just because, bad guys are not cool. – CC2

    Lame

  • KGSG JLigerbomb

    cc2 lazy ass

  • KGSG JLigerbomb

    Who care about mecha naruto we dont like him and u doing it anyway for the kids.

  • YOᗰI 由紀

    Naruto Storm Movesets are probably the most simple things to create in any fighting game.
    There’s no chaining, no diversity in button input, no juggling opportunities, no balance what-so-ever.
    Hideously large hotboxes, you just have them swing their fist in front of them and have 3 different combo finishers.

    It’s an embarrassment.

  • Tuff7322

    CC2 is like lets put in character that are key to road to Boruto to fight against but not let us play as them.
    Lazy Idiots

  • TETSUYA

    I don’t care.

  • EliteTrainerXeos

    Sometimes you just have to ask yourself what was the f***ing point?

  • Mr. Turnip-Head

    I don’t care that you don’t care

  • TETSUYA

    Ok.

  • YOᗰI 由紀

    How many Naruto’s and Sasuke’s do we need in this game.
    If characters are so difficult to create. stop wasting time, redoing Naruto and Sasuke.

  • Mr. Turnip-Head

    K.

  • Red Hood

    Oh wow, a Storm game no delivering stuff that people actually wanted. There’s a shock.

  • Raios Rogue

    this is some lame sause McGee if they are not playable and we are not getting anything good why would i want to buy your stupid DLC

  • Leafa Yamanaka

    “Smash keyboard”

  • Leafa Yamanaka

    That’s my rage for not putting the new character from boruto the movie

  • Otto Suwen

    That’s some sh*t only CC2 could do.

  • Fall to Confusion

    THEN WHAT THE FAWK ARE THE EXTRA SLOTS FOR????

  • Rachel Summers™【Earth-TRN240】

    This articles thumbnail is the greatest thing I’ve seen all year.

  • Rachel Summers™【Earth-TRN240】

    “Confusion”

  • Leafa Yamanaka

    They are lazy we never get the new character
    They just put more naruto and sasuke

  • Mr. Turnip-Head

    Now that Storm is finishing up I wonder when the next Naruto game is going to be release

  • YOᗰI 由紀

    Road to Boruto – Evolution.
    Now with Boruto the Manga characters.

  • Leafa Yamanaka

    All right they put more naruto and sasuke
    Not the new character
    And they bring back mecha narutard…..
    Hahahahahahahahahahahaha!
    I so f#king angry right now

  • Fall to Confusion

    More like trollage…in past storm games there would be numerous empty slots left with no characters!! It still bogs my mind as to what are they for!!? ‘Maybe Characters’? , ‘If we feel like Characters’? , ‘let me go Fäp for a bit and I might make new characters, Characters’???? LIKE WHAT THE FAWK IS THE POINT? Is it poor development on their team….they don’t know how to code the intended amount of characters so their flawed code makes endless character slots?

    I feel like the DBZ games have fell off since Tenkaiichi 2 (or 3?) PS2 version…but ONE THING about ALL THE DBZ games is that they WILL GIVE YOUR ASS A FAWKING CHARACTER ROSTER NO DOUBT…from Dragonball to Current…they got them. I would rather wait for as long as I need to for a COMPLETED NARUTO ROSTER CHARACTER….I will wait even if I turn 80 years old.

    UGHHGGHGHHGGHGHGHHHH

  • MurderKing

    This is so bullshit This is a next gen Naruto Game they being Lazy we should have 6 path of pain individually, sasori scorpion form, Indra ashura, sage of 6 paths, Ginkaku Kinkaku,7 swordsman . They could add a huge roster to the empty slots you guys made millions how about put some effort to filling those grey slots instead of more sasuke and naruto skins we Deserve it as fans.

  • Fall to Confusion

    EXACTLY!!!!!!!!!! Just plain fawking laziness….how the fawk can you not have Momoshiki and Kinshiki as Playable but y’all took the time to create them….I don’t see what’s so difficult. I understand the process may be a little different for online deployments but how difficult can it be??

    *Cant make Kinishiki and Momoshiki playable….

    *Takes the time out to put OP Pts Lee and Gaara in the game…

  • Deathliger(lion of chaos)

    All these flavors and the comment section chooses to be salty, like anyone on here isn’t going to use the typical Naruto and Uchiha’s online.

  • Kid Robin

    Anyone want to trade a Gengar for a Litten/Aron?

  • Rachel Summers™【Earth-TRN240】

    I’ll just be sticking with me Zabuza as usual 🙁

  • YOᗰI 由紀

    Not everyone is a Sasuke fanboy like you m8.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Lmao at the people who are going to waste their money on this junk, seriously why did yall but storm 4 lol?

  • Kid Robin

    Cuz it’s fun as long as I don’t play it competitively and note that like almost every other anime fighting game that’s all it is

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Dude this is cc2 they don’t believe in putting effort lol

  • Kid Robin

    ;-; One day…. One day….

  • Exkirion

    Instantly went from “I can’t wait” to “I won’t buy”. Way to go devs.

  • Deathliger(lion of chaos)

    I would wholeheartedly believe you but I’d just point you to the character usage rate on the storm online board.

    P.S Itachi fanboy here.

  • Exkirion

    Storm 4 is a really good game, but this is just disappointing now.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Yet it doesn’t live up to its potentials and it is halfass…well more like half a quarter

  • Kid Robin

    Still not an unplayable mess so good enough for me and others who like it

  • HA! Doesn’t get anymore lame then this, Or does it? ;3

  • Rachel Summers™【Earth-TRN240】

    Awww yisss Eli-Holo~

  • Anthony_weaver86

    I don’t want to be that guy specially considering I only played the demo of storm 4 and stop playing cc2 games after Asura and storm 2, they’re games are not fun anymore. At least in my opinion and those who think the same way

  • Exkirion

    You stopped at the worst possible place. The storm games got a lot better after 2. Not the story mode though, but the VS gameplay did.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Eh all I have to say is try not to spend to much on it.. well it’s not my money so ya

  • Alex Calhoun

    Well that’s a bubble burster. I can live without Yurui but the other characters I really wanted. I’m still gonna buy it but my enthusiasm has died down quite a bit.

  • This right here sums it up perfectly.

  • Kid Robin

    And then I find out Aron isn’t even in Sun/Moon…. What a load ;-; Think I wanna curl up and cry

  • *laughs at you*

  • Kid Robin

    *cries some more*

  • Lame… Don’t buy it, don’t support them. Idiot.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    No no I stop at the right time, seeing the gameplay on youtube shown me that nothing significant changed or at least a good comeback to the series. The only thing they keep saying they fix was online. Storm 1 was great and by far the best storm game out there. Tho this is my opinion

  • Anthony_weaver86

    I support what Holo said don’t bother, if anything just watch the story on youtube

  • Rick Lee

    as a rock lee fan, this pisses me off a lot. CLASSIC CC2 BS

  • I’m a Kushina / mei fan.

  • Also madara c:

  • Anthony_weaver86

    What did you expect? Lol

  • Exkirion

    Storm 1? Graphics-wise maybe, but other than that, it was probably one of the worst ones.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Nah storm 1 was fun, creative in both gameplay and quest, the other storm games just focuses on story and the boss battles

  • I expected just this when i seen the trailer, i knew they would stick with the story mode only bull shít tradition they started since storm 3. So far only 1 new character, Luffy 2.0.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    I know I shouldn’t tell you guts what to buy and how you spend your money and you don’t have to take it seriously (even though some of you will lol) but this game isn’t worth it, they made storm 4 with little members and now they give it an update with little changes whom are only available to the following main character’s and one new character.

    But if you want to support Naruto by all means get the game and be a supporting fan

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Lol and he doesn’t seem to be inspired by the manga either, but yeah that’s why I stop playing storm series due to this

  • YOᗰI 由紀

    Did you use to go by Meidara?

  • Anthony_weaver86

    They should have brought back lars

  • Rick Lee

    not sure what i expected, but i then remember that cc2 is the company that still can’t make people who are more relevant than iruka playable such as anko, nejis father edo tensei, gold and silver bros, etc

  • Rick Lee

    oh how i miss the story mode for storm 2….

  • Rick Lee

    cc2 director: MORE HELLO KITTY SAKURA!

  • Anthony_weaver86

    You still had expectations for them which was your fault lol

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    They stopped deserving our money after Storm 3. They decided they can make 2 or 3 more games without bringing any new actual story to the game, too. Basically, a filler game if you will. Revolution? De fux is that?

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Eh I can’t say that I do, though it had great boss battle and lars in it

  • Did i mention storm 4 only had 2 new outfits, Karin prison & Hanabi … Smh

  • Always @Holo_The_Wise_Wolf:disqus

  • Anthony_weaver86

    The story is fine it’s just character’s and gameplay which they lack

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Lol ha and no cm2 Jugo lmao

  • Nameless

    Wow

  • Lame.

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    What story did Revolution even have? Did any new story come out that was actually canon to the anime itself? Pretty sure it was what you call a filler game.

  • o/

  • Nameless

    S3 has a good story mode

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Oh im sorry I was referring to storm 3 abd 4

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    Yes, yes it does. After Storm 3, they stopped caring from what it looks like.

  • Red Hood

    I only bought Storm 2. Didnt care about any of the other ones tbh

  • Nameless

    Yeah

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    Storm 3 was perfect. 4, I have a problem with.

  • Nameless

    Hibanaro

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Yeah I bought storm 2 thinking it would be like Storm 1…I was mistaken and lied to myself lol

  • Storm 4 had terrible story mode, that powerpoint grade affect though.

  • Red Hood

    Are you actually trying to defend this garbage dlc?

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Oh well I pretty much just watch the boss battles so I might have missed something lol

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Ah

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    Storm 2 was good, too. Storm 1 is… AWESOME. I think they put their best effort in Storm 1.

  • Powerpoint nuff said.

  • The Naruto & sasuke die hard fans to blinded by the obvious bull shít .

  • Red Hood

    No Toneri no buy

  • DeathLiger(Lion of Chaos)

    Explain to me how it is garbage? would it be because the the villains in said dlc are unplayable? if so, blame it on Xenoverse for starting the trend, I also find that hardly a matter to complain about considering what characters are mostly used online in storm to this very day on a majority basis.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Yes my thoughts exactly storm 1 was fun and it’s mechanic were great, I love the jutsu clash, wall fights, and the punch animation they did that throws enemies to the other side of the field. Not to mention the animation was great.

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    Classic CC2 BS indeed.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Not just that but no Jugo cm2 lmao that boy gets no love

  • Elliott Blair

    After CC beat down the broken bonds game (which i honestly liked) there was no more competition. They dominate the naruto market of videogames.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Wait what did xenoverse do?

  • Red Hood

    They had a year to make it, and that’s not even counting the fact that the Boruto movie cane out last year. The only thing they have to show for it is a couple story mode battles, new movesets for Naruto Boruto Sasuke and sarada, and then Mitsuki. They have so much material that they could’ve used, yet they’re going the lazy route. They could’ve added in Gaiden, the rest of the kids, the villains, Adult costumes for every leaf 11 ninja, The Last: Naruto the movie story missions. Instead they put in the bare minimum.

  • Elliott Blair

    But here, have mecha naruto.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Lol

  • Red Hood

    Xv1 had GT and some movie characters as dlc iirc. Which was dumb too.

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    Yeah, I guess they don’t have really have to work hard to get fans of the anime to get the game anymore. I want another company to pick up Naruto. CC2 doesn’t do the trick anymore.

  • Red Hood

    Smh, they gave Rin a moveset but couldnt update any character that was remotely useful

  • Anthony_weaver86

    But they were playable tho

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    Yup. Here, pay for old characters again. Sorry, no new ones.

  • Red Hood

    Yep. So it’s better. They still shouldve been in it from the start though

  • Red Hood

    Mitsuki was added

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Platinum games might be a good one to pick it up, though not sure if they are good at online. Though online sucks for Naruto if you ask me

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    What move-sets? We barely know shiz about him. lol Add the one character we know least about… Pretty sure we have more Intel on the villains of the movie then we do a a teammate of Boruto and Sarada.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Wait you think the GT should been in it from the start or are you referring to Naruto and it’s movies being in there from the start?

  • God Kookie Diva

    CC2 did a no no.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Smh poor guy

  • Red Hood

    Lol they had Rin, Iruka and Kushina playble. They dont care if we know anything about them

  • DeathLiger(Lion of Chaos)

    A year? I’m sorry I forget that the entirety of CC2’s development team was completely spent on Storm 4 which for your kind information has not, if the entirety of the team was responsible for the Boruto dlc, then you’d have yourself an argument.
    As of Mar 2016, CC2 has had eight games in development besides one of them being the FFVII remake, not to mention opening another branch of their company in Montreal a few months ago

    What you identify as lazy, I identify as time and budget constraints, also do we have any idea of the contractual obligations that Namco has put out for CC2? under what time frame and how much content they are supposed to deliver? No we do not.
    This is anything but the bare minimum considering we’re actually getting another round of cinematic battles which is what Storm is largely known for but let’s be honest here, do you actually believe any of those characters you mentioned are going to be used on a basis such as Naruto and Sasuke? or any other Uchiha for that matter? Also it’s not as if they’re charging you 60$ for the entire dlc so there’s barely anything to complain about save for season pass owners being ripped off.

  • Elliott Blair

    I think A naruto musou type game would do well if Koei got its hands on it.

  • Ahtma

    The weird part about that is that there’re actually more fully-animated cutscenes in the game’s files, they just aren’t finished.

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    It does suck. No punishment for rage quit when that is, probably, its biggest problem.

  • DeathLiger(Lion of Chaos)

    GT characters as dlc
    No playable Demigra
    No playable final form Mira in XV2.

  • Ahtma

    A Naruto musou game would be garbage. Musou games manage to have even less depth than Storm does.

  • Rachel Summers™【Earth-TRN240】

    they did a Morg!

  • Ahtma

    Iruka was added because he’s one of the most popular characters in the series in Japan. In almost all of the character popularity polls since the first one (sans the last one) he’s ranked in the top 5 consistently, something that only Naruto, Sasuke, and Kakashi have done.

  • God Kookie Diva

    I love playing musou games but I agree, they’re real simple.

  • Elliott Blair

    That isn’t true. The Berserk game proves that they’re improving on the format still. CC peaked at storm 2.

  • God Kookie Diva

    I’m a yeah yeah.

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    Iruka we know enough. Rin we know enough now, too. Kushina, too, actually. We know enough about them now, as well as their move-sets, but Mitsuki we barely see fighting. Same style as his father, otherwise.

  • Ahtma

    The Berserk game plays exactly like every other musou game, from Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage, One Piece: Pirate Warriors, Dynasty Warriors Gundam, etc.

  • Rangga Ahmad

    So, no momoshiki and kinshiki?

  • Red Hood

    The game came out in February and the dlc releases next Feburary. If they didn’t spend all that time working on what little they gave us that’s an even bigfer disappointment than it is now. Especially since this Boruto stuff isn’t even new. We’ve know about all these characters since last August, they could’ve been working on this crap before they released the game so they didnt send out the dlc a year later. Smh. And you can’t say “oh no one would use them” as justification for not putting them in. Cause no one would know unless they actually make the characters and find out.

  • Red Hood

    When did we see any of those characters fight? Yeah Rin became the three tails, I’ll give you that. But thats not enough for an entire moveset.

  • Red Hood

    Hope its more Naruto and Sasuke variants

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Oh that. Well at least they added more character’s.

    Abd I think I know why those two weren’t playable in X1 and 2, being that they aren’t part of the DB community. Though as to why storm didn’t make the movie villians playable is a great big question mark

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    We saw Iruka fight enough to see he sucks in general. Rin, well yeah. lol Kushina I’ll give to you. A frying pan to fight? lol Yeah, that’s ridiculous.

  • Ahtma

    Difference between movie characters and Naruto/Sasuke variants is they can at least justify the effort going into Naruto/Sasuke variants because it’s gonna be guaranteed that people will actually use them.

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    A DLC on top of a DLC. lmao

  • Elliott Blair

    Get ready for Naruto in a Luffy costume and Sasuke dressed as Zoro.

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    Pretty much.

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    EXACTLY!

  • Ahtma

    “Developer adds additional DLC for their game!”

    What a completely unheard-of and totally unprecedented concept.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Well to be fair Kushina fighting style isn’t wifu style lol

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    Re-read it…

  • Ahtma

    What is a “DLC on top of a DLC?” Because that literally just reads as a DLC that follows a previous DLC.

  • It’s sad that you are defending variants instead of trying for more original NEW characters.

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    Maybe the other person typing will explain it…

  • No.

  • Elliott Blair

    This. CC had it right by including all those goofy costumes in the base game.

  • Ahtma

    It’s an easily defensible stance. Why should they have to create characters if online usage statistics shows that the odds are stacked against them and people will just ignore them? I main Mu online for the biggest reason of because barely anyone plays as him and he’s never broken past the top 100 in usage on PS4, a lot of people don’t know how to deal with me denying their dash with a block into my tilt. People don’t know the hitboxes of Mu’s combos and how to deal with them, because they’re too used to some dude maining Obito/Lee/Itachi/Naruto/Minato/Sasuke.

  • I wonder what their thought process was when they decided to not allow us to play as the movie villains of the best Naruto movie ever?

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    Guess not. The Boruto game coming out is a DLC for the original Storm 4 game. Imagine CC2 charges us on top of that DLC to add a DLC to the damn DLC. Get it?

  • DeathLiger(Lion of Chaos)

    Again, 8 games in development and when it was announced, they had just one, one branch of the company active and still delivered Storm 4 along with it’s dlc. They’re only obligated to deliver what Namco contracts them to do and in the timeframe that Namco wants them to deliver it in, you nor I know the details of it, so all your guess about it being “worked on before the game” falls on deaf ears, if they were working on the characters like you’re claiming it to be then logic would dictate that we would’ve got an earlier release date for this add-on but we didn’t. instead we got it a year later.
    It’s true? no one uses them? just look at the Edo Kage fiasco of S3, where they ever used in Revolution on the same basis as Naruto, Sasuke or any other Uchiha? But they do know, ever since S2 has come out, what characters have been used as a majority? certainly not the entirety of the akatsuki, certainly not the sannin either? definetly not the edo Kage either, but Naruto, Sasuke and every character whose name ended with Uchiha

  • Dude it is not about online statistics. It is about not being lazy. They are plenty of games that give out 100’s of hours worth of gameplay experiences for less than 5 bucks as extra content or for free. They are charging us 20 dollars for a 5 dollar experience. Especially when compared to the original SIXTY DOLLAR GAME.

  • Ahtma

    I think I do, if you’re insinuating that CC2 will charge to use characters present in a DLC but not playable. And honestly, I think that’s a totally legitimate practice, because if they release the characters separately as playable in a pack then the vocal majority who wants those characters can quit crying and they can justify the cost of going in and fleshing them out. The Sound Four are really great to play, and it was a great move to make them cost money because for years it’s been non-stop whining that four villains of the week from 10 years ago haven’t been playable, and now that they are it’s time for people to whine about something else.

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    lmao Exactly. Imagine. Watch CC2 make it happen. lol

  • Red Hood

    I feel like you could at least justify having the main villains for the movie as playable. Not so much the kids, but Momoshiki, Kinshiki, Toneri. They’re all big characters and would most likely be played a lot.

  • They delayed storm 4 & it still wasn’t worth the money…
    Powerpoint grade story mode
    Story mode only characters (alot)
    Story mode only outfits (alot)
    Story mode features cut out from finished game

  • Ahtma

    In typical Liger form, you are missing the point I am attempting to make. Why should they go through the effort of making certain characters playable if it doesn’t seem like people are going to actually use them?

  • Ahtma

    “Story mode features cut out from finished game”

    Y’know, it’s totally not like they said that if they couldn’t find a way to make wall fighting balanced for Free Battle they weren’t going to include it outside of story.

  • Can’t believe it but i agree with Liger, yuck I need some soap in my mouth now.

  • Typical Ahtma, you are missing the point I am making. Why shouldn’t CC2 create characters from the movie that made the most money out of ALL Naruto movies? This is like asking why we should eat breakfast, lunch and dinner.

  • Remember Hashirama sliding on the tree fighting Madara in the trailer?

  • I do but that was not in the game sadly.

  • Ahtma

    Because so many people play as Kaguya and it was totally worth the effort for them to make her playable. If Kinshiki and Momoshiki were added, there’s greater odds that they wouldn’t be used and the effort put into them would be little more than a novelty than there is that suddenly people would start maining them.

  • Cut out of the finished game.

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    So, they bring a new DLC out for Storm 4 and charge us more for that extra DLC and then charge us more out of the DLC we just brought which they are already doing with that first DLC for Storm 4? Does that make sense? lol Yeah, there will be WW3 if that happened. I just said it and it sounds RIDICULOUS. Charging us for DLC that should be in the game, like the SOund 4 was bad enough. Charging us for a DLC and then charging us more to use character from that DLC we just bought because they charged us more is beyond retarded. See how crazy it sounds when it is said? No way. lol

  • Ahtma

    Link me the trailer that had this because I don’t.

  • …..You really are out of touch if you think they should charge us for the things we are expecting from a “Boruto the movie” expansion.

  • Can’t Link on SI, it’s in the 1st or 2nd trailer i think.

  • Kid Robin

    New post:

    Attack On Titan Season 2 April 2017 Release Date Confirmed

  • Ahtma

    I’m out of touch in the sense that my opinion isn’t that of the majority that cries with every addition missed, yes.

  • God Kookie Diva

    Over it.

  • Your opinion needs adjustments badly. DLC done right makes company millions. DLC done wrong can end a gaming era. That is why the game market crashed so long ago.

  • Yes, their was a clip of them sliding on the trees with the susano in the background.

  • Ahtma

    You have such little understanding of non-Nintendo subjects that I don’t even need to remark on it. There are extremely well-documented reasons for the video game crash, and none of them are even close to being factors in today’s market.

  • He is probably at home on his laptop or desktop.

  • Ahtma

    It’s not beyond retarded, like I said, it’s a totally legitimate business practice. CC2 is regularly lauded as “not caring about the fans” when they’re just about the only developer I can think off of the top of my head that has an official suggestion page for fans to submit what they want to see in future games. Charging for the Sound Four was something that when it was first rumored I laughed, because that was something I would do for the least-thankful fanbase on the face of this planet, which is exactly what the Naruto games fanbase is.

  • Ahtma

    Remove the three W’s, capitalize the C in the end part. It’s not hard.

  • I do know the real reasons. Basically it was due to DLC in physical form. The companies started charging more for less. That is why it crashed because people got tired of that.

  • Seventh

    1 new character for a 25 dollar “expansion” pack.

  • youtube.Com/watch?v=YcivluyINc0&t=23s start at 1:40

  • Ahtma

    I type at roughly 100 WPM on average and am very good at putting down exactly what I mean to say. Offline usage doesn’t factor into what they do because if offline usage was a factor into what they did, they would add wall fighting and clashes for offline. It has been a staple of the series since Storm 2 because online multiplayer gives a game much greater longevity and staying power than an offline game will have.

  • See the thing is video games are both Online AND Offline experiences. Remember Ahtma, back then video games did not connect to the internet. Seems you forgot that part.

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    The majority cries because they are smart enough to know when a company is trying to rip them off of as much money as possible for one single game. You believe people should spend over 100 on a single game? That’s not ridiculous? Could be 1/10 of your damn rent!

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    It’s BEYOND retarded and I’ll leave it at the because because logic seems to be out the window now. I’ll end it at that.

  • Yup, theres even screen shots from past scans i believe aswell.

  • Lame.

  • Ahtma

    No, it got tired because the market was flooded with no quality titles, and there were roughly over a dozen new home consoles currently being put on shelves in the market. Being the Nintendo fanatic you are I’m surprised you don’t remember the NES performing well because of one little thing, the Nintendo Seal of Approval, being stamped on all of the games officially released for it.

  • Thanks, i kinda skimpped through it lol.

  • Ahtma

    If your rent is so difficult to pay that you have to hemorrhage it into food money and entertainment money, then you have a problem and need to stop playing games in the first place, especially if you’re so conflicted about spending just $20.

  • See this was cut out.

  • Red Hood

    And how exactly do you know the inner workings of CC2 so well? Bottom line is, they had a branch working on it. They’ve always put low effort into their DLC. This is supposed to be the last Storm game, the least they could’ve done is add in the two main villains from the Boruto movie since they wanted to do this Road to Boruto crap so bad. Instead we get the bare minimum. A story mode that’ll last probably at most 3 hours, more variations and one new character. Woohoo.

  • Ahtma

    >well thought-out argument
    >entitlement problems translated into thinking entertainment is a right
    >”You’re retarded, I’m done!”

    gg mate

  • Ahtma

    Okay. They trim the fat of the first boss fight in the game. Oh no! My purchase is invalidated!

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    Do you guys go out and visit this site on your phones?

  • In total Hyrule Warriors had about 13 characters you can add to the game for the same price as this DLC and those included new maps, dialogue and items that come with those new characters. How can CC2 not be able to provide use with even half of that?

  • You asked for proof of cut content so I showed you.

  • Red Hood

    I mean, they are in it to make money. It sucks for people who actually bought this game, but charging to add in the characters is a lot better than not adding them at all.

  • Only at times when I have free time. But other than that like tonight I am at home.

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    The Witcher 3’s DLC is a great example of how a DLC should be. The same goes for most of the DLC for Fallout 4.

  • Ahtma

    Final Fantasy is a RPG meant for replayability, and is a completely different genre of game compared to Storm, which is a fighting game. This is a false equivalence on your part. Also XV is getting multiplayer DLC later down the line, so yeah that’s going to add to it.

  • I’m on ps4, I’m bored.

  • Ahtma

    Occasionally. Disqus is poorly optimized for mobile so it drains the battery life more than I’m personally comfortable with.

  • If they wanted to be this lazy then they should at least charge us 10 bucks and not 20.

  • Ahtma

    I wasn’t asking for proof so much as I was just trying to see what you were talking about. It was what looked like a small on-rails portion of one boss fight, it’s not a big deal.

  • And to top it all off. HW gave us 3 FREE characters and a lvl 255 capacity. So think about how much time it would take to level up ALL those characters.

    Hyrule Warriors has about(with all DLC) 29 playable characters.

  • Ahtma

    Fallout 4’s DLC is absolutely terrible. Nuka World is the worst case of quantity over quality that Bethesda’s vomited out yet, and Far Harbor was too short to be enjoyable. The other DLCs all taste like mod ideas.

  • DeathLiger(Lion of Chaos)

    I never claimed to know the inner workings of CC2? if I did, please show me where I did so, I receive information about the company the same way you do, from newsites, you can go look up the article about them having 8 games in development. One branch, hello? is that passing you by or something? they had only one branch, the main one when they were working on Storm 4.
    The very first branch they actually made in Montreal opened in October and even then it wasn’t completely filled up with employees, seriously, just go look up their facebook page.
    The story mode is what makes storm games, compare the sales statistics of generations and revolution to 2 and 3, you’re not losing anything over them not adding characters that again may I remind you barely anyone plays as. Instead you’re getting a spectacular cinematic boss battle, new movesets for the Hokage Naruto and Adult Sasuke which btw people have been clamoring for ever since they were shown as costumes in the season pass and to top it off, a cinematic ultimate jutsu.

  • Red Hood

    Not lazy. They made the characters didn’t they? Now they’re just getting money for their work. Makes sense. Sucks, but makes sense. Ideally they could’ve added in Momoshiki, Kinshiki, maybe some of the kids and the new story mode elements to the road to boruto pack and charge ~$30 for it.

  • Ahtma

    Story mode parts being cut also doesn’t bother me because people typically play much less of the story than they do the free battle.

  • Red Hood

    Rarely.

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    It’s not JUST $20 dollars. They just keep going. Doesn’t have to be rent money. It can go into anything more important. Buy the already more then half a 100 dollar game and move on. If you want to get a DLC, make sure it is like buying a nice small mini game story. Like The Witcher 3 and Fallout 4. Those are prime exmaples of how DLC should be. Enough said. I’ll leave it at the because that is the best example of how a DLC should be and that’s a fact. ^_^ Yay~

  • Yeah and you can get all that for about 80 bucks. 60 dollars for the main game, 20 dollars for TWO season pass plus the free update.

  • Ahtma

    Same. I don’t find these practices the best but it’s the only way to support the company I like to see games from.

  • Really… Lame.

  • Red Hood

    I feel like it’s easier to add characters to a hack and slash game than an online fighting game.

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    Stay salty. ^_^

  • Red Hood

    Compare it to Smash Bros, Injustice or Mortal Kombat, then you have something.

  • DeathLiger(Lion of Chaos)

    He’s not the one running away from the argument, right now.

  • You do know that we don’t support CC2. That is BNE. They are the ones that pay CC2 upfront. They will get ALL the revenue from this DLC.

  • Kid Robin

    Most of Fallout 4’s DLC was reviewed as awful to average.
    Witcher 3 is a RPG and was a solid game to begin with base wise unlike you probably thought Storm 4 is.
    Think most people forget DLC is just supposed to be whipped topping on a cake not the cake itself.

  • Ahtma

    How you gonna say you’re not gonna waste money on DLC then go on to say Fallout 4 has good DLC. That’s like saying you’re not going to eat McDonald’s and then plunge your face straight into a bowl of feces.

  • Ahtma

    How am I salty? You’re calling my arguments retarded with no actual rebuttle beyond “b-but people need money to do things.”

  • Kid Robin

    Even a bit more complex since each DLC minus the Sound 4 one also added new story

  • Now Smash Brothers had better DLC since they actually take the time to work on all the characters/stages. While all we get is one new character and a extra story mode.

  • Ahtma

    CC2 definitely receives money from their efforts from BNE, otherwise the DLC wouldn’t be made at all because they wouldn’t have any money to pay their employees.

  • Well I’m out, Maybe I come back if theirs more hilariously lame news like today,byee!

  • Yeah but only a bit compared to what BNE actually earns from CC2’s effort. That is why we get this mediocre DLC expansion. BNE probably didn’t give them enough money for all the content they SHOULD have added.

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    How biased of you, one. Two, didn’t buy it. 😛 It’s fact it’s better than CC2 ANY. DAY.

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    Stay salty. ^_^ 😛

  • Ahtma

    Well, yeah, that’s how a publisher works. Without BNE CC2 probably wouldn’t be making games at all.

  • Red Hood

    I’m just saying, you’re claiming stuff about CC2 like it’s fact and I’d like to know where you get your information from. And is the main branch not the biggest branch?
    Ok? Not sure what the Montreal branch has to do with any of this, but nice fun fact. I don’t care enough about CC2 to follow their facebook page and remember shitt like this, but you do you.
    Not exactly sure how making the dlc story mode that has a playtime of ~3 hours is better than releasing multiple character packs of characters people actually want to play. But apparently in your eyes it is.

  • One new character. The rest are just characters reusing old things. The whole Boruto moveset could have been done in a month. Heck I have seen modders do better.

  • Red Hood

    Aren’t Momoshiki, Kinishiki, Yurui and Shikadai in the story mode? They made movesets for them didn’t they?

  • Ahtma

    It’s not even biased lmao, it’s objective. Fallout 4 was a 6/10 at best shoot and loot game with an awful story that took everything that Fallout used to be and made it worse. You pay $50 from first party vendors to buy Far Harbor, the only justifiably priced expansion covered by it, followed by three DLCs that expand upon one of the game’s least-developed and monotonous features, the settlement building.

  • I hate how BNE has the monopoly of anime games. When there was competition back a decade ago they actually had to provide quality games just to keep up with the competition at the time(Clash of Ninja). Now without any competition BNE doesn’t need to spend much money since they are the ONLY source of anime gaming.

  • Red Hood

    Tbh I don’t even have the game, or plan on buying it at all. So none of this even effects me.

  • Ahtma

    “I have seen modders do better.”

    Modders are only capable of taking characters with files that already exist and chopping them up while also redistributing their parts. If CC2 did this there’d be a riot.

  • I won’t buy the DLC. Maybe if Momoshiki is playable in some form maybe but if not then I will just save my money on better things like the upcoming Nintendo Switch. We will learn more about what games are coming out for it on January 12-13.

  • DeathLiger(Lion of Chaos)

    What exactly did I claim about CC2 that is a “fact” as you call it? Yes the main branch is the biggest branch which was currently working on 8 games simultaneously with only a staff of 220 as of March of this year. Simple research would actually enlighten you on this?
    Of course I do, if I didn’t then I’d have to contend with people like you who think making games and even a simple expansion is easy and that you deserve more when you’ve actually been given in the best anime adaptation of a video game to date for 6 consecutive installments. Some fandoms even don’t get an amazing adaptation like this despite being popular, see One piece for example.
    “Multiple character packs of characters people want to play” because the fanbase has shown time and time again that they’re a bunch of children who are fascinated with a new toy and dump it for an older one of their choosing. I don’t need to list the Edo Kage example again, now do I?

  • DeathLiger(Lion of Chaos)

    Supporting niche companies like XSEED, Marvelous can change that, but it’ll be a long while since BNE actually has most of the franchises that are mainstream, Naruto, SAO, DBZ, One piece to name a few.

  • Ahtma

    I’m biased because I disagree with critics, fantastic argument my dude.

  • I just hate that they got a hold of the anime gaming contract no thanks to other publishers tanking due to stupid mistakes.

  • Kid Robin

    I’m still buying the disc $39.99 version still. The story modes in Storm(aside from Generations) have always interested me enough, I held off on getting the season pass for this, and it’s about time I changed my region from EU to NA&SA

  • DeathLiger(Lion of Chaos)

    There are actually people who depend on these scores instead of judging it for themselves, how surprising.

  • DeathLiger(Lion of Chaos)

    T’was a shame what happened to Atari.

  • If my opinion counts, I found Fallout 4 boring as all hell. The only enjoyment I had was the Like system, trying to get the reporter girl to like me as I blew things up and stole things. After that I stopped playing. I liked the shooting, the most fun I had in a shooting game, but I wanted a RPG and I barely got that.

  • And Takara Tomy. They had the best Naruto games when it came to pure fighting mechanics.

  • Wasn’t there a crash because the pure saturation of terrible games on the market?

  • Red Hood

    So are you saying that you’re lying right now about the branches and the contracts? And again, you’re assuming I care enough to research.

    Good for you dude. You keep fighting the good fight. Even though you’re not really proving anything. I mean, for starters, I haven’t bought or played a Storm game since Storm 2. Definitely don’t plan on buying this one. You didn’t change my mind on the fact that this DLC looks pretty trash. You haven’t exactly given me any reason to think otherwise. All you’ve done is defend CC2.

    And who’d know that the fandom for a game targeted at kids and teenagers were a bunch of kids and teenagers? Woah.

  • Road to Boruto looks like a good offer to me.
    Mostly because I didn’t buy the other DLC

  • Sucks Shikadai and the other Konoha ninja won’t be there. I hope the characters already in the game get costumes.
    So that’s Naruto, Sasuke, Boruto, Sarada, Mitsuki.
    5 New Characters.
    A New Story Mode
    New Adventure Mode, I think
    I hope some new Maps
    And there should be a load of costumes.

  • Ahtma

    Mitsuki strikes me as he’s gonna be fun to play as. I like the stretchy arms stuff he does.

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    There are idiots who assume and talk out their ass, how surprising.

  • DeathLiger(Lion of Chaos)

    What did I lie about concerning branches and contracts? isn’t it pretty obvious that what BNE contracts CC2 to do and in response CC2 delivers?
    what exactly did I lie about concerning branches? CC2 had one main branch when developing S4, their second branch was put up in Montreal on October.

    I’m not here to prove anything though, the reason this argument started was that you claimed that the dlc was trash, I asked you how it was trash considering the time frame that was given to an already thinly divided studio. It never was my intention to change your perspective on it, if you don’t plan on buying it? that’s fine, your decision, not really my problem, my problem is that you’ve failed to explain how this dlc is trash taking in the time constraints, licensing etc etc. Yes I did? I mean you’re constantly saying CC2 can do better in the timeframe give to them when you nor I have no idea what goes on behind the scenes on developing the pack.

    The general target audience is kids and teens, I do agree, yes but you’re not going to sit there and tell me that’s all the demographic for the game only includes them, now is it? it would be very laughable if you did.

  • Oh, they’re not playable? Whatever, not like someones died. I’ll just look forward at the 2 other characters they’re hiding.

  • DeathLiger(Lion of Chaos)

    You’re a prime example of it, no doubt.

  • Ahtma

    Hey, we don’t throw around review scores like they mean something so I like to think we’re at least a little ahead.

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    Facts are facts. Stay salty. ^_^

  • That’s the way.

  • Has potential if CC2 just has fun with it, having alot of frantic movements with that stretch ability. I;m also wondering if He’s have his Gaiden form as a Ultimate, considering his chapter was Kishi’s work. But, I doubt it.

    Should be fun.

  • Ahtma

    NO, SHUT UP. METAL LEE NOT BEING PLAYABLE IS LITERALLY WORSE THAN HITLER, STALIN, AND CASTRO’S GHOST COMBINED.

  • Nazokage

    terrubull

  • Seventh

    Same, just disappointed the villains weren’t added.

  • Seventh

    I’m still gonna get it, the stuff that’s in it looks good. Just disappointed that momo and kinshiki aren’t in this.

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    I enjoyed the game. The shooting was fun for sure. Yeah, not too much RPG, but it didn’t have a bad story. Having the freedom to go your own was was good, too. Didn’t have limited options.

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    Stay salty. lmao

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    Speak for yourself, Dumbass. Hop off my dik. don’t know where you came from. lmao

  • Ahtma

    Something’s wrong with your keyboard, you keep mistyping your comments as the same thing almost as if you have nothing else to say and just want the last word in.

  • Ahtma

    Dumbass isn’t a proper noun.

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    Go back to your hentai you low life pervert. lmao

  • Red Hood

    I didn’t say that you lied. But you keep saying all this stuff about branches and saying “do your research”. So either you’re telling the truth about the branches and stuff (which makes it a fact) or you’re lying.

    And I told you why it was trash. I already stated my opinion, that 4 variations, one new character, and some story mode missions aren’t appealing to me compared to adding in more new characters. I’d rather have the new characters than a short story mode mission. I’ve explained that. If you can’t accept that explanation that’s fine by me.

    I didn’t say that the entire demographic was teens and kids. But it’s not surprising that a demographic with kids and teens in it have people that act like kids and teens.

  • DeathLiger(Lion of Chaos)

    Yes, because hentai is all that encompasses and defines me despite it having no trace of it on my proflle, apparently being blind is another one of your traits, must be why you’re wearing sunglasses in your picture?

  • It’s fine to be angry/frustrated and all. But remember its all they have at the moment, but if you know you’re gonna get it regardless then let it be known.

  • Ahtma

    He should really take those things off, I don’t think he can see his keyboard very well if he’s indoors.

  • DeathLiger(Lion of Chaos)

    Yet another example of you being blind, I mean really, you claim that I’m on your “dik” so to speak and next thing you know you say you don’t know where I come from

    Egad, you need to get your eyes checked man.

  • Shazam

    Meh. I’ll get it. Sure, why not.

  • Seventh

    Yeah, and they said they have more stuff coming 🙂

  • DeathLiger(Lion of Chaos)

    I believe he’s still recovering from the thrashing you gave him, people usually recovering from a traumatic experience lash out at the first person they can get a hold off.

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    You know I’m right! lmao Stay salty haha

  • Ahtma

    Five.

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    I’m sure you know what I mean. I’m sure it ain’t the first time you are being called one. Stay salty. lmao

  • Ahtma

    Six.

  • Secret Source tells me theres 2 left. So take your guesses.

  • Shazam

    Sakura and hinata.

  • DeathLiger(Lion of Chaos)

    How’s the count going?

  • Sure. Why. Not.

  • Ahtma

    We’re up to six at this point.

  • Shazam

    Wait! Naruto and Sasuke!

  • Seventh

    hmmmm. Probably…..idk.

  • spyro20

    lol, thats funny, oh well, who would want to play as copies anyway? (shikamaru and rock lee’s sons).

  • spyro20

    chill out, hes a copy anyway.

  • TheSherlockHokage

    How one? Naruto, Sasuke, Boruto, and Sarada till now. Also, new story mode and new adventure mode.

  • TheSherlockHokage

    Atleast add them as a costume.

  • spyro20

    that wouldn’t make sense, wearing clothes of your future child is just weird.

  • TheSherlockHokage

    They can just put him on a different slot with same moveset. Not that hard.

  • Vallen

    TONERI

  • Asuma (Scouter)

    Watch it just be a fake out, they are playable just not as they are in story mode moveset wise. Although if the others happen to be Mist Swordsman or Dan with team ults with Tsunade and Asuma all will be forgiven

  • spyro20

    waste of time.

  • It’s okay.

  • spyro20

    one final naruto game i expect is a naruto musou for the PS VITA and thats it.

  • Yes he did.

  • TheSherlockHokage

    The DB games didn’t end.

  • You’re an idiot.

  • No.

  • OmgWhyYouMadSon

    this is trash then if they not playable trashhhhhhhhhhh

  • Himawari

    Finally here on SI and I have to say is, why would you create costumes for TL Naruto & sasuke, but then add the full versions later? that’s so freaking backwards! those 2 costumes could have been for someone else.

  • Himawari

    Also to anyone that’s defending anything CC2 is doing right now then KYS!

  • Ouroboros

    I would say I’m shocked, but then I remembered this is CC2.

    But hey, look at the bright side. We get Mecha Naruto! LMAO! Seriously, wtf….

  • Dome Nik

    Wow, that is one of the biggest crap-moves I’ve seen from a game-developer in a long time. That is almost No Man’s Sky-level of sh*tness. xD “Mimimi playable characters are not always easy to create” – What a lame excuse is that? If it’s not easy, then maybe get your crap together and work for your money a bit more seriously?

  • jshep23

    And now I’m not getting this

  • Fall to Confusion

    And you’re a dumb fawk…

  • Red Hood

    I’d rather they leave them out than make people pay for costumes.

  • spyro20

    look on the bright side…at least they’re in game form. lol

  • Jōichirō Yukihira

    Word. That anime is dragging on. I lost interest in the mystery behind the titans over a year ago. I was hoping it would be as long as FMA Brotherhood but it’s looking to be several times that in length.

  • Jōichirō Yukihira

    Filler game with a canon price tag.

  • onyonz

    It’s the final dlc for the last storm game and they choose to NOT put in key characters when there’s at least 15 open slots in the game. They can put Iruka/Rin/Kushina/Another 5000 Obitos but naw to hell what the fans want. HOLY SH!T. I’m glad this is the final game cuz cuck Scamco and their money hungry habits.

  • Mysterious Man

    Well, it looks like CyberConnect2 is at it again as usual just like Naruto Storm 3.

    Why am I not surprised?!

    I’m glad I wasn’t super hype for this new DLC judging by the price is small compared to a full game. I wonder how many people are still going to support this. I’m still going to buy it because enjoyed the Boruto movie.

    It’s funny people wanted CyberConnect2 to develop a new One Piece fighting game based off this reputation of theirs. Hell, even a new Dragon Ball fighting game since not many people like the Dragon Ball Xenoverse series.

    Dimps and Spike know how to handle DLC unlike CyberConnect2.

    However, there’s still hope other new playable characters not part of the story mode.

    So, characters like Shin Uchiha, Toneri, 3 Kages (Boruto Movie), Anko, Shizune, and Kurenai stll have a chance.

    Not to mention, the 8 player endless and spectator thanks to AfroSenju.

    People also need to understand the #FixStorm4 was only meant for gaming improvements, not new playable characters. Stuff like the glitches, spectator, buffs/balance for characters, netcode, etc. Anything else is being a b#tchy entitled brat.

    Not much, but better than nothing. I will enjoy playing with friends, but honestly I’m ready for a brand new Naruto game by new developers. It’s time for a Naruto Musou by Omega Force. Anyone who disagree can kiss my ass

    I’m done. Peace.

    Going back playing Final Fantasy 15, Pokemon Moon, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Dragon Fusion, Pokken Tournament, Berserk, and One Piece Burning Blood.

    I can’t wait for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 and One Piece Burning Blood next DLC this month. Bandai should be dropping trailers soon. I’m going to have fun with Cabba, Forst, Garp, and Caesar.

  • YOᗰI 由紀

    I don’t get this, we just saw Kinshiki in a scan on the Konoha stage, they didn’t fight there at all in the movie so it’s obvious it’s free mode. Which means they’re just trolling.

  • Nun Elizabeth

    fusk , no momo and kinshiki 🙁

  • Ahtma

    I was exaggerating.

  • LegendarySuperSaiyan

    I still remember reading the Naruto manga (Fourth Shinobi World War) and thinking to myself ”can’t wait to see all these cool characters in a storm game” Untill this point i have bought all the Storm games and the dlc’s. but CC2 and Namco can S**K my legendary nuts this time around.

  • Dave Weber

    guys dont believe in CC2… BELIEVE in the people that make MODS! ^^

  • YOᗰI 由紀

    It’s great being a Naruto Uzumaki fan.
    You’re never let down.

  • cody larsen

    Bring back Lars Alexanderson cc2

  • Plexa

    Sasuke and Kinshiki briefly fought in the Konoha arena, not to the extent I would have expected it to be included in the game though.

  • Chevalier

    Not the arena, the first stage you start off on when you go to the stage select.

  • Di

    why am I not surprised?

  • HDAdegasPT

    Dimps > CC2
    DB XV2 > Naruto storm 4

  • Hahaha

  • Megalan

    It’s true, at this point. Who HONESTLY wanted Mecha-Naruto?

  • Megalan

    Same.

  • Megalan

    Got God Eater 2: Rage Burst?

  • Megalan

    Stretch? So he’s like Luffy.

  • How is this possibly “No Man’s Sky’s-level of sh*tness”?
    No Man’s Sky lied about several mechanics and features that were not present in the game.

    Here, they are telling us that these characters are currently not in the game. Story mode only. They are in the game, and they are in as advertised. They haven’t lied to us.

    And Move sets are hard to make, they re quire time to research the character, create multiple designs and layouts for multiple ideas. Those Ideas need to be approved of, then those need to be animated in the great way CC2 does, then those need to be approved. Then they have t go into the technical work, making sure the move sets actually work, And those steps can take a long time.

    Add to that they are giving us a story mode, where they need to focus on new assets, character models, gameplay ect. This is likely also a smaller team from the original team working on Naruto Storm 4. Add to that CC2 is a small company composed of maybe 300 people. Working on multiple projects.

    Is it your job as a customer to know any of that? NO! But is it your right ignorantly to bad mouth a studio that gets way too much sh** for doing something you find unfair? NO!

  • No.

  • Terrible, terrible mods.

  • Exkirion

    It’s not like they sacrificed anyone for mecha Naruto, they just ported him over.
    And no it’s not. XV2 is just as bad as 1, they are basically the same game.

  • *Trafalgar D. Water Law*

    well that’s fudged up.

  • Woah wait Storm 2 isnt like 1. Storm Generation isnt like 2. Storm 3 isnt like Generation. Storm Revolution isnt like Storm 3 and Storm 4 isn’t like Revolution? Are you sure? They sold the same game like 5 times but with more characters and then you are flaming around because of 2 Xenoverse games?

  • NinetalesCommander

    I don’t think people properly understand how hard it is to make even 1 character playable in this age.
    Come on guys, at least this expansion actually looks like it’s worth the price.

  • NinetalesCommander

    I swear I was the only person that was gutted when I found out Mecha-Naruto wasn’t playable.
    Seriously, why the hate? I love playing him in the last game.

  • Darnell™ | 全能の神

    It’s been ages. Where in the world have you been for goodness sakes?

  • Darnell™ | 全能の神

    Well who would be surprised after all the fckery they’ve already done? Hmph. And I thought EA screwed their fans. What a shame.

  • Skull kid

    Back to the source!

  • I’m sure they will add DLC characters later.
    Consider that they are doing a disc release for “Road To Boruto” version of Storm 4.
    That means that Storm 4 was very successful & profitable, and that they’re confident with the game.
    I would be surprised if they don’t eventually put out more DLC characters and costumes later.

  • thedevon122

    So for the people that actually got the day 1 DLC of Boruto, Sarada, Adult Naruto, and Adult Sasuke, the only new characters for us to get are Mitsuki and Mecha Naruto?

  • I’m so surprised! Lol

  • *Trafalgar D. Water Law*

    you tell em broly

  • KazeKombo

    dammit just when I found a reason to go back to naruto. oh well I just i will just stay playing dragon ball xenoverse 2

  • Jōichirō Yukihira

    Think they’re gonna charge us more for those characters that appear in the Road to boruto dlc pack?

  • TheSherlockHokage

    No. These are new Boruto and Sarada with new movesets.

  • TheSherlockHokage

    People are paying a 20$ either way.

  • UltimateGodGohan

    dlc for expansion?thats new 😀

  • Red Hood

    Adding in those costumes would be more of an insult than leaving them out. Having the costumes in shows us that the developers thought about it, and in the end just decided to go the cheap way and give us reskins of old characters. Which probably wouldn’t even work seeing as it’d make sense for the kids to have moves from both parents, not just the one that they look like. Leaving them out sends the message that they didn’t have enough time to add in the kids, who btw had like 10 minutes of screen time in the movie.

  • Tom Horton

    Why do I smell Mortal Kombat XL?? It’s a shame when companies resort to this nonsense to drum up money. The additional characters and move sets could’ve been done before the game was even released originally.

  • roockie112

    What a letdown as expected from CC2.

  • Mysterious Man

    Don’t you sugar coat this sh#t. They have one F#CKING year! Key F#CKING word “year”. A year for them to add spectator and player endless as free DLC. Key F#CKING words ” Free DLC “. They also added an exclusive character “Mecha Naruto” from old ass broken Naruto Storm game “Naruto Storm Revolution” over these non playable characters.

  • Mysterious Man

    I play Monster Hunter.

  • darkness

    This was bound to happen anyway I mean this CC2 we’re talking about. They’re known for disappointing us. So I don’t see what’s so surprising about this. To be honest I was expecting them to make the main antagonists of Boruto: Naruto the Movie playable and that’s it. Just like Papa Berto stated “everything that was in the trailer is going to be in the game”.

  • rezo

    ………..Not playable but in the game this smells alot like the excuses in they gave for the other storm games…… And in the next storm game most of those “non playable people but bosses” became playable….. only thing is there wont be a Storm 5…….. Unless Boruto becomes big like Naruto is anime/manga

  • Silent Rain

    This is an expansion based on Boruto, the mayority of key characters won’t be playable, they instead gonna put mecha naruto, nothing but a bunch of geniuses, don’t be surprised if they put Lars also.

  • Silent Rain

    Totally agree.

    At this point i can easily say:

    Konami > CC2

  • *Trafalgar D. Water Law*

    fuq this, I can just go get 4 $5 meal deals at taco bell instead

  • iChaos92

    This gives them a great opportunity to sell a DLC called the Otsutsuki (or whatever) Pack with a new Team Ultimate Jutsu…

    Also, another DLC would be called “Generations” which will include Shikadai and Metal Lee and the other brats. This concludes also a new story, where the old generation fights against the new one. You just have to think 😉

  • Prince of Gods

    Mitsuki is brand new, Mecha Naruto is technically new but he most likely won’t change from Revolution, while Boruto Sarada Adult Naruto and Adult Sasuke are all getting completely new movesets (ig you could consider this new)

  • Prince of Gods

    I died at legendary nuts lmao

  • Prince of Gods

    Popeyes is better

  • Prince of Gods

    If they can bring back Mec(rap)ha Naruto they can bring back Lars, damn it.

  • lolcatz6657

    Go take a shower, CC2. I can smell the greed from here.

  • *Trafalgar D. Water Law*

    dude yes!

  • Motts76

    If we don’t purchase they won’t make money for robbing you. The problem is that no one fights back anymore

  • CC2’s#1apologist

    Can you still Bypass this sites stupid ban on links to other sites?

  • SOLOmio

    Aaaand scrapping Boruto expansion of the list to have in 2017! Until price drop’s there is!

  • Exkirion

    I comment time to time, when i feel like it and If I see any interesting posts.

  • CC2’s#1apologist

    This company’s motto…

  • NinetalesCommander

    Whoa dude, chill out, I never said anything about spectator mode and Endless battle mode, I was talking about the characters.
    And for the record, yes I agree, spectator mode and endless battle should have been added as free DLC but since this page was focused on characters, there’s no reason to mention that.

  • Torrent, it’s your time.

  • Jellal Fernandes

    hey boo

  • Madaras Rape Face

    A lot of people don’t see a different version of a character that exists as a “new character” they take it as a “old ass character”

    Me? I’m sad they don’t have Kinshiki, Momoshiki and the like as playable… but I’m mostly buying it for the new Sarada, Boruto,Naruto and Sasuke. So I’m fine.

  • NinetalesCommander

    Except Lars isn’t owned by Cyber Connect 2, they’d need the permission from Namco to use him.
    I know you may think they can do it because Bandai Namco publishes the game but you’ll be surprised to how complex copyrights can be.

  • Georg Grossmaier

    If you actually believe one of those poorly created mods can replace a real playable character, you are deluded.

  • Georg Grossmaier

    If only I Dragon Ball weren’t that cringeworthy…

  • Georg Grossmaier

    So are Naruto and Sasuke.

  • Hiroshi Matsumoto

    Twitter says something else, I’m sorry but as far as I know only Naruto and Sasuke have been officially confirmed to have new movesets, both BN and NarutoVideoGame twitters haven’t said anything about Sarada or Boruto having a new moveset. Source?

  • Nagatem, Triangle Sama SI God

    Really? Way to disappoint again cc2
    How can you not make the villains playable
    So basically you just get retooled naruto, sasuke, boruto and sarada

    AND only Mitsuki is new

    What the F#ck really ?
    Put more effort into a huge experience like a movie story dlc

    I’m not bothering with it now just for one new character and some updates to ones I have, not worth the price tag

  • Nagatem, Triangle Sama SI God

    Just as disappointing as the full game

    No guruguru boss battle or playable character, no updates to old characters like orochimaru

    Yeah they said they were waiting for the series to end so they would have enough material yada yada

    Bs just plain lazy bs

  • Megalan

    It’s just that there are other characters that should have been proaritized. We excpected to play as characters from the movie, not some filler garbage that many people said was broken. If they release the story mode exclusive characters later as paid DLC, that would be the last straw for sane people. Anyone who buys that either love getting ripped-off or is sucking CC2’S D***.

  • Megalan

    Oh. I don’t have that game.

  • Mr. Turnip-Head

    Hah probably

  • TheSherlockHokage

    That means they are new.

  • NinetalesCommander

    Or maybe, you know, we actually like the content they’re putting forward and we want to play it?
    I’m sorry but when people accuse us of things like that I really hate it, if you don’t want to buy it then don’t bloody buy it! Don’t lob us into that sort of nonsense just because we actually are looking forward to the DLC.
    Just because you don’t want the content doesn’t mean everyone else isn’t going to want it.

  • Jōichirō Yukihira

    That means they’re updated movesets of characters that are already in the game.

  • Jōichirō Yukihira

    The edo tensei shinobi are more exciting as fighting characters than characters relevant to the plot. I’d rather play as Pakura, the scorch release blood limit jonin than Rin, the rehash 4th mizukage awakening or Toroi, the magnet release edo tensei than fuckign Iruka and his erasers and chalk attacks

  • TheSherlockHokage

    No. Such as every new Naruto in the game, this is a new Naruto.

  • Jōichirō Yukihira

    Yeah well we call that a new moveset especially since the character models are exactly the same as what’s already in the game unlike a new naruto.

  • I’m not a Rapper

    MK XL was different, I think the extra dlcs were made after the game launched

  • Only When Vince McMahon Dies™

    You’re giving them too much credit

  • Hiruma Ignacio Youuichi

    They were. And aside from Quadborg and Bo Rai Cho, the other two are also others movies’ characters.

  • Hiruma Ignacio Youuichi

    Storm 3 had the same treatment. Yet we never got the Edo Kages as DLC after Full Burst.

  • Hiruma Ignacio Youuichi

    It shouldn’t be DLC to begin with. They were already in previous releases.

  • Hiruma Ignacio Youuichi

    You should have named BT3 and BT2. That would be a Beam Weapon-level of damage on haters.

  • Hiruma Ignacio Youuichi

    Actually depends on the modder. Too bad that Legendary Agwang doesn’t do Naruto mods

  • Hiruma Ignacio Youuichi

    Did Spike really made some new character DLC? All I remember are broken OP builds from RB1 and EU-exclusive costumes for RB2.

  • Hiruma Ignacio Youuichi

    You mean an Uzumaki Chronicles?

  • Hiruma Ignacio Youuichi

    NO.

  • Hiruma Ignacio Youuichi

    Piccolo*

  • Mysterious Man

    I hope you know this not the same Spike from 2009. This is the new Spike Chunsoft in 2016. These characters DLC won’t be broken because the last two DLC characters (Gildo Tesoro and Rob Lucci) weren’t broken. They are balanced. Same will apply to these new playable characters.

  • spyro20

    no i meant a naruto game like one piece pirate warriors, but an uzumaki chronicles related game could work but with good, smooth mechanics like in the ninja storm games. they can make an RPG game that covers the whole entire series different from the way how cyberconnect2 developed the ninja storm games or it can be about sasuke’s journey and naruto’s sidestory.

  • NinetalesCommander

    I agree with you there, it should be free for all players.
    But look on the bright side, at least this way is better than nothing at all.

  • Megalan

    Someone doesn’t like One Piece. (Assumption.)

  • Ryan

    damnnnn, how to kill any way of someone buying this extra bit in 1 shot lol

  • Vallen

    YES.

  • Danninetyf

    This is just a complete kick in the teeth…… No Shikadai, no Metal Lee, No Momoshiki or Kinshiki when all of us have seen scans that make us think that they are playable ? All we are getting is a piece of $£!T Mecha Naruto and Mitsuki as BRAND NEW characters ? Also a few new movesets with characters we are all bored with ? Way to lose your fans CC2 sort your heads out!

  • Prince of Gods

    the trailer
