  • Salador

    I almost thought something new like Xenoverse 3 or new content for XV 2 when I saw the name until I saw Nintendo Switch. Looks nice, if I had one

  • chris

    2017 sucked for anime games… Was the year of re-releases
    – Xenoverse 2 on the switch
    – One Piece Unlimited World Red on PS4
    – Naruto Storm Legacy

    2018 better deliver with FighterZ, Shinobi Striker and the One Piece game

  • Navok76

    I got this game with 5$ and it’s not even worth it

  • Yomi

    Dead ass game.

  • Yomi

    Looks like this is just stock footage and they cut in relevant gameplay for whatever game they’re selling.
    That boy wasn’t playin’ shyte.

  • Kaguya Otsutsuki

    Agree. You are absolutely right. But let me tell you something. I am a huge fan of Naruto, but all of storm games suck. Character rooster are always the same with only 3 or 5 new characters, they repeat the Naruto part 1 characters. It doesn’t have a nice open world. I think Shinobi Striker is gonna make the difference along with FighterZ. In my opinnion, I’d never buy games like Storm Legacy. They are stealing your money. The same four past games in a single disc. Just proffit.
    Regarding Xenoverse 2 on the Switch. Well, practically the same thing, same graphics and characters. Xenoverse is a very repetitive game. I think they should add a huge open world for xenoverse 3 and more characters that are yet to be seen in the future.

  • Kaguya Otsutsuki

    This is what I think. I am a huge fan of DB and Naruto, but all of storm games suck. Character rooster are always the same with only 3 or 5 new characters, they repeat the Naruto part 1 characters. It doesn’t have a nice open world. I think Shinobi Striker is gonna make the difference along with FighterZ. In my opinnion, I’d never buy games like Storm Legacy. They are stealing your money.

  • I’ll just “switch” over to the PS4 version.

  • uhMayzedHD

    They gotta this running on the Switch? What sacrifice they made to run this on that.

    Edit:
    I found out
    – 1600 x 900 in TV mode
    – 1280 x 720 in other modes
    – 1 on 1 battles will be 60fps
    – other battles will be 30fps

    Fighting games MUST be at 60FPS at all time that why Naruto games feel so sluggish now.

  • Insanity_Norm

    I see what you did thar.

  • Insanity_Norm

    Ever since N64, Nintendo has failed to make a console that is not gimmicky. Even though the Wii sold millions the only reason why it sold so much was because of it’s price point and the novelty of sensor controller. They should stick with handheld and give up on the console market unless they’re willing to go all in and make a powerful system that will be utilized by it’s great IP’s that Nintendo has failed to take advantage of.

  • chris

    The Storm games suck? Storm 3 is the best Naruto game of all time man!
    I like open world too and am curious to try shinobi striker, although the graphics aren’t as good as the Storm ones.
    The thing is, I really don’t expect it to be much more than a Naruto version of Xenoverse. They ought to do the same as Dragon Ball and come up with an actual fighting game, like FighterZ

  • Just gonna ignore the GameCube?

  • Insanity_Norm

    Yes. GameCube never happened.

  • Sakata Gintoki

    F*ck yeah this is the kind of article I wanted

  • Anthony_weaver86

    How dare he

  • Michael Graham Jr

  • Nagatem, Triangle Sama SI God

    Triangle sama dodged a bullet by living a few hours away from there

    Hi guys, soul, sabo, gent,forty,

  • Nagatem, Triangle Sama SI God

    Here’s hoping, we don’t need another catastrophe anytime soon

  • Yo

  • That’s crazy, the second best Nintendo console

  • Nagatem, Triangle Sama SI God

    Good to see ya man, sorry I’ve been gone so long, I’m gonna try to be on more, lag or not

  • Nagatem, Triangle Sama SI God

    Heck yeah

    Fond memories of n64 and gamecube

  • Nagatem, Triangle Sama SI God

    Unfortunately it’s almost bed time for me, but i swear i will try and come back tomorrow

  • Should battle me in Pokemon tomorrow…

  • Seventh

  • Nagatem, Triangle Sama SI God

    I may have all 6 iv pokemon but my ego is far to fragile, ill trade you stuff you need if i got the time to get/ breed but battle wise im pve only haha

  • Nagatem, Triangle Sama SI God

    Night bro, ( still in hs right I forgot what grade my bad)

  • Dats lame

    I’m set with any Pokemon I need, bred my team immediately after I beat Moon, and even reset for a Calm nature Nihilego and Adamant Bulu

  • Nagatem, Triangle Sama SI God

    So how pumped are you for ultra?

  • Meh, it’s pretty much like Black 2/White 2, no?

  • Nagatem, Triangle Sama SI God

    Nope its an alternate universe where the story unfolds differently

    Rumors are that solgaleo and lunala
    Are wearing necrozma’s discarded body and its true form is pure light

  • Nagatem, Triangle Sama SI God

    Well good night for real this time XD

  • Yea I’ve seen that CoroCoro scan of them with that Necrozma like ‘armor’, but honestly unless there’s more new Pokemon I don’t think I’d be too interested in it.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Well…we do have Trump in tge office so that comes with the package lol, I’m sorry I thought it was funny. Trying to make light joke

  • Ahtma ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵂᵃʳᶜʰᶦᵉᶠ

    God forbid someone try to make their games be different from their competitors. Once a main line Pokemon game comes out for the Switch the sales will shoot up dramatically.

  • Ahtma ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵂᵃʳᶜʰᶦᵉᶠ

    Storm 3 was one of the worst Storm games, only above Revolution. Instant Awakening was an awful mechanic. The true best Storm is Generations, which first introduced the sub bar but still had four combos for everyone and was excellent.

  • chris

    Dude you don’t know what you’re talking about. Generations and Revolution sucked.
    Storm 3 was THE best of the Storm games

  • Insanity_Norm

    So 2 Pokemon games and SSB dictates how great of a console is? Didn’t know 3 titles could define how good of a console is.

  • Insanity_Norm

    NES would beg to differ.

  • Insanity_Norm

    Then it clearly shows how pathetic the console is if it’s going to rely on 1 franchise to “shoot up” their console sales. I’m not talking about Nintendo’s IP, I’m talking about their console which is a totally different story. They have some great IP’s too e.g,.Mario, Donkey Kong, F-Zero, Fire Emblem, Animal Crossing, Zelda, and Metroid. I’m sure I missed some other great IP’s but they failed to capitalize on it because they’re so focused on releasing gimmicky consoles and living in the past of Wii’s success. It’s unfortunate. Even with the Switch (even though I do have one) it takes a back seat to the PS4 and X1 because either 1. It’s not gimmicky enough like the Wii or 2. They aren’t pushing their IP’s on to the Switch. If they’re relying on Pokemon to gauge their success on Switch, I pray to god that they leave the non-portable console market as soon as possible.

  • You’re tellin’ me that any game on the NES is better than Melee?

  • Insanity_Norm

    Several games on NES is better than Melee.

  • Ahtma ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵂᵃʳᶜʰᶦᵉᶠ

    Generations had extremely tight gameplay with all four combos and no cheap mechanics like Instant Awakening. It was the only game pre-Storm 4 to give you the ability to save replays of matches and it had some of the fastest, smoothest gameplay in the series. If you think Storm 3 was the “best” you objectively have trash taste, Storm 3 was a step in the wrong direction with Instant Awakening and removing the 4th combo.

  • Ahtma ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵂᵃʳᶜʰᶦᵉᶠ

    >they aren’t pushing their IPs on to the Switch

    Over the course of time yes they are. Inevitably they will stop supporting the 3DS and shift their focus onto the Switch and that’s when not only sales but also games will really start to boom on that console.

  • Insanity_Norm

    Yeah hopefully that’s the case and they don’t replicate what they did with Wii U. I don’t see them moving away from their money maker – 3DS.

  • Ahtma ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵂᵃʳᶜʰᶦᵉᶠ

    The 3DS’ hardware has been pushed all the way to its limit and its age is starting to show. They’ve already stated they’re gonna put a main line Pokemon game on the Switch, they’re very likely going to make that their sole focus.

  • Insanity_Norm

    As a Switch owner that’s what I hope they do and not throw a wrench and release 3DSXXXL2017VERS.

  • chris

    “objectively”? how come storm 3 is the one with best reviews out of all the storm games and most people like it better than gens? look it up.

    Generations had a weak roster and a poor story mode. Most characters were broken and the roster was unbalanced. Storm 3 had flaws but was definitely a superior game.

    Ill give you the 4th combo one, but its not that big of a deal. If you actually read the manga and watched the anime you would understand that the instant awakening makes sense for a lot of characters like Tobi, Hinata, Yamato and Guy to name a few.
    By far the best story mode of any Naruto game to date. It even includes boss battles.

    You’re delusional if you think Gens was a better game than Storm 3…

  • Ahtma ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵂᵃʳᶜʰᶦᵉᶠ

    The story mode isn’t a factor in this. Instant Awakening may have been a mechanic that made sense to the original series but that does not automatically make it a good mechanic and created massive imbalance in the roster. If you were playing a character that didn’t have an Instant Awakening you might as well have lost because IA characters have a huge advantage over non-IA characters. Subbing from the chakra bar in Storm 2 made sense with respect to the source material but it was an awful feature which is why from Generations onward they added the sub bar.

  • chris

    lol the story mode isn’t a factor?
    This is what you sound like: “You can’t use this very important feature as an argument because it helps prove I’m wrong! So if you don’t use those good arguments, it mean I’m right! Sucker!”
    dude I’m done with you…

  • Ahtma ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵂᵃʳᶜʰᶦᵉᶠ

    Story mode is singleplayer content and has no bearing on the gameplay itself, which is solely what is being discussed here.

  • chris

    No dude, YOU were the only one talking about gameplay. The other guy and I were talking about the games a whole. Which makes more sense btw. And if you wanna talk about gameplay only, Storm 3 is still better than Generations, the 4th combo was not that big of a deal, and instant awakening made sense. The roster was way more balanced than in Generations. You could win with any character online if you were good enough, unlike Generations, everybody was using Kakashi cuz of the shitty backhand combo or Neji. It sucked and it was a poor excuse for a Naruto game, especially considering that Storm 1 and 2, which came out before, were way better. You’re just one of these idiots who likes what everybody else dislikes, because you just want to be different

  • Ahtma ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵂᵃʳᶜʰᶦᵉᶠ

    >Storm 2 is better than Generations

    Alright, it seems we have completely different opinions on this and we’re not going to sway eachother. I’ll agree to disagree. I also don’t have these opinions specifically because I’m trying to be a contrarian, it’s my opinion and I think it’s pretty arrogant to assume that just because someone disagrees with you they’re deliberately doing it just to disagree. I haven’t insulted you a single time and I thought you could extend that courtesy to me but it turns out I was wrong.

    Also from the get-go of our discussion I have been referring to specifically the gameplay. If we’re talking story mode content, I definitely put Storm 2 and 3 on-par with eachother.

  • chris

    “I haven’t insulted you a single time”
    “you have objectively trash taste”

  • Ahtma ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵂᵃʳᶜʰᶦᵉᶠ

    That’s not insulting you in general but specifically referring to your taste in the Storm games. You flat out called me an idiot.

  • chris

    You sound like you would be painfully boring to be around, you know that?
    I’m done with this shitty back and forth with you.

  • Ahtma ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵂᵃʳᶜʰᶦᵉᶠ

    Hey, thanks man. Have a good one.
