V-Jump just revealed a trio of Naruto games including Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, which will be on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Its' going multi platform? Did not expect that. Anyway the graphics in that scan of naruto are insane: wow!
Wow I... didn't see that coming. What were the sales of Ultimate Ninja Storm?
... played the demo for the first game a bunch of times, and really liked it, but the game seems to have been taken off the market or something, cause it's pretty hard to find, or still too expensive for a year-old game. You would think this game (1st part) would receive some kinda platinum release, with the DLC included...
Huge blow to the PS3. This was one of the best fighters this gen (mainly because big name franchises have all been slight disappointments. This was the only exclusive PS3 fighter, now Sony has none. @1.1 It sold over 700k which isn't bad. But the weird thing is it did the worst in Japan, not even 100k there. Going to 360 will probably double sales which is probably the reason they're going multiplat this time.
Hopefully they make it 3 on 3 tag matches like Marvel vs. Capcom 2 this time, instead of just using assist characters. And add online, and more characters and powers, and I'm sold (The first Naruto game I bought, it's that good).
Blah, nevermind. Reading skills before coffee < reading skill at all other times. As far as manga vs anime, Shippuden has been doing pretty well as an anime in following the manga very closely. I'm happy either way.
@abizzel It's also because it's was a prettier Narutimate Hero but with less content , while the ps2 and psp series were still going strongly and up to date with the anime . As for your second point , hum i dont know , i dont like the idea . Naruto UNJ was already a little chaotic , hell the whole serie lost a bit of it's complexity (yeah i know it was the deepest fighting game but still) the moment it added support and strikers . Between the obvious imbalances issues and spam , it made it even more of a button masher . At least Ninja storm with it's addition of 3d made it possible to avoid most of the crap thrown at you buy multiple foes . I say keep it that way , but with every moves the ps2 and psp series already had + new ones , all current characters possibles , and obvious a good online .
I wonder how much of Shippuden this will cover. All the first game lacked was a competitive online mode. If they take the initiative to make it as well rounded as Blazblues net code, but add in a variety of ways to fight it'll be awesome. I'd like to do competitive 2v2 or 3v3 with buddies online against another team of 3. The game also had really good mini games for the quests which could also translate well into the online to compete against each other. Really all the second one needs to do is cut down on the repetitiveness of the quests and add online fighting to be an outstanding success. I wonder if they'll be able to squeeze out the same graphical prowess on the 360 as they did with the first one using only the PS3. If they can it's a real slap to Ubisofts face, because their Naruto games on the 360 look like crap lol.
I know i wanna play as Pain/Pein but seriously this is good news. I dont mind this game going multiplatform i mean most teens like Naruto and thats majority of 360 audience.
YAY! Loved the first one. Glad to see there is a sequel on the way
Knowing past Naruto games, we probably wont get up to Pein. Also, those are pretty shocking sales for Japan. Game sounds like it overall did pretty well, though. I own the first one, and... I'm basically the only one I know that owns it :/
Please make it happen!!! >_<
bout fcking time they made a shippuden game for the PS3 :D
Hopefully The PS3 version isnt gimped.
OH GOD YES!!!!!! If they just focus on online multiplayer it will be a winner. This is what was lacking in the first one. I really hope the PS3 version isn't gimped because of the 360 version either.
Sweet. i like the first one.
PS3 losse another exclusive heheheheehheheh Go Microsoft Go
How can we lose an exclusive when it was announced multiplat in the first place.
CyberConnect2 has the rights to playstation 3 development of Naruto Games. Actually it is the Sony Playstation BRAND. Ubisoft has the rights to make it on the 360 so this is a misprint pure plain and simple. If you disagree with it Go to there website and look under the fan FAQ for Naruto UNS and you will see that someone asked This game looks Great will it come to the 360? and their reply is No it will stay Playstation Exclusive as Ubisoft are the publishers for Naruto games on Microsoft's Console.
It better follow the manga, but seeing as it will be released over here it will more than likely follow the anime.
I wish it'd follow the manga :(
with all the past misprints about game platforms in the past it's the safest bet. on a side note i screamed like a girl when i saw the headline.
I agree with you for the fact that on Naruto UNS CyberConnect/Namco Bandai said they only have the rights to Develop Naruto games on the Playstation consoles while Ubisoft had the Xbox rights.
Best news all week :D Really can't wait. About it going multi, I'm too much of a NARUTO fan to even care. So glad the game is coming. Wondering how far into the series it will go though...
up to where they find sasuke.
I dont care if it's multi , i just know Cyberconnect 2 makes the only naruto games worth playing . In both graphics and gameplay
Indeed no one makes Naruto Games like Cyberconnect. UNS was awesome naruto game, specially Boss Fights with Bunta Vs Manda and Bunta and Naruto Vs Gaara. Add this to my most wanted list of 2010. 25 games according to my list.
Hell i'll even say i'm happy if it's multi , i wouldnt wish anyone to only have access to Ubi soft's mediocre naruto games .
God those games were a disgrace to the franchise imo. The awful animations and pathetically lifeless character models did it for me. As well as the combat, which didn't feel like a Naruto game at all.
hope i get to use amaterasu and kakashi's sharingan watevr he calls it.
it also had a bunch of silly quest that made those games looks like a Mario Party . And when i'm saying that i'm insulting Mario party .. at least it was it's purpose to be a succession of mini games and it does it well . "Ubi's Narootoo" have the galls to call itself a rpg even . I know that ultimate ninja storm's , and past ps2 narutimate heroes's campaign mode arent awesome ... but they did their job as an EXTRA to a FIGHTING game . I see no excuse for ubi's games , who fails at fighting game mechanics , fails as a rpg , fails at reproducing the look and design of the franchise and fails at animations .
Now the xbots can even play the best version of Naruto!
This should have remained a ps3 exclusive
not exclusive anymore? I swear the gfx better not be a downgrade from the 1st game.
no way , we ps3 owners shouldnt care anyway . the ps3 was the lead machine and should remain so . We knew the engine would be mmilked and only a bit improved rather than entirely revamped . And it was unlikely that Ninja storm was only possible on ps3 . Hell it didnt use the space , given the lack of characters and special moves or online .
yeah I guess you're right. I'm defintely buying this. =]
I just hope for online and More jutsus, could careless about it being multi.
naruto ultimate storm sold well in japan. I didnt support cyber connect to have this game multiplat. its gimped if this is true. just look at tekken 6.
Xbox 360 already have best exclusives for Naruto version check http://xbox360.ign.com/obje... PS3 losse exclusives games day by day !
Doesnt Ubisoft publish naruto games on the 360 and CC publish games on the PS3 and the Wii had tomy games
Day 1. Hopefully it has Chidori Senbon/Nagashi. I would have gotten 100% on the first one but there was no point. But this one will have trophies :D.
me and my buddies still play Storm 1 religiously whenever we're home during breaks. this is a dream CC THANK YOU! lets pray this'll have online play. this game will be AMAZING if it has Naruto sage mode, Pain, and Sasuke mangekyo mode... can't wait!
but is anyone besides me hopeing for a Bleach console game, similar to Dark Souls.
Only if it's bleach heat the soul , the game on psp finally coming on home consoles .
I really wish they would make Bleach games for next gen consoles too, I love Bleach!
It will only be for the PS3. Cyber Connect/Namco Bandai only have rights to make Naruto Games for the Playstation Line. Ubisoft have it for the 360.
Wow! did not see that coming. had the first on PS3 which was an okay game. Single player sucked balls though.
It will probably finish with Sasuke Vs Itachi. Spoilers ALERT, don't read this if you watch the anime and don't want to know what's next No naruto game follows the Manga, but if this one does... DAAAMN, we will have some epic characters (Killerbee, all the current kages and their 2 bodyguards, Naruto's Sage Mode, Pain, etc, etc). I cannot even begin to imagine a Naruto Sage Mode special or finishing move or watching Sasuke use Susanoo and Amaterasu... Or the Boss Fight between Naruto and Pain in the hole that is Konoha now.
It will most likely follow the anime :( You made me realise how epic would it have been if the game followed the manga... but we can still wait for the anime to catch up :)
Tag battles are needed for this game. Oh well, glad I got the Wii version.
People stop complaining about the game going multi. Cyberconnect had no control over this. Namco Bandai are the publishers of the game and not only have the rights to the IP, but they're the actual ones with the liscence to sell Naruto games on Playstation platforms. It was more than likely their decision.
I love Naruto, but I would like a One Piece version of this game even more.
I completely agree. They need to make a One Piece fighter!!!!
I doubt this will be as far ahead as the anime in Japan let alone the manga. It's most probably going to be set where the anime in US is currently set. Hopefully I'm wrong. I want to kick a55 as evil Sasuke.
F*CK YEAH! I played the UNS demo and really liked it. I'm glad it's going multi :
that just shows their own Naruto games were Sh^t, which they really were compared to CyberConnect's Naruto.
