hope we get to play as pein's puppets
Hidan has to be one of my favorite characters, i hope he comes back at some point. Also it's pretty sad that someone(look in the open zone) is using his 8 accounts to disagree with people interested in this.
i dont think he can come back.
Why the hell would he be back anyway ? While cool , it was pretty obvious Hidan is a weakling compared to many others , and outside of his main ability , got no threatening fighting skills for many heroes and villains of the serie . His powers were a genius catch 22 ... but once you know the tricks and how to deal with his "cheat mod" he is worthless in fights .
@ juice Yeah i want 2 play as Pain/pein puppets 2. I still wonder just how strong is Madara.
If it only goes up to the Hidan/Kakuzu arc, then how does Sasuke in Akatsuki robe make any sense storywise?
THANK GOD they added online play. Now this game may actually be worth a purchase!
@ Eamon Your right now im starting to think it might go to the fight between Sasuke and Itachi. I'm not sure who im going to play as but i might play as a low tier.
@Eamon It could just be some alternate costume thats inturn a spoiler if you didn't know.
Fantastic news! I'll be buying this one for sure now. Just hope the online is smooth.
I hope the same. Raging Blast ran smooth online so hopefully NamcoBandai has their developers sharing resources for the netcode.
True. I think this is CC2's first online game. I hope they'll share their engine with other developers for anime games too. And PLEASE can we get a Bleach game on the 360/PS3!
why are you getting disagrees?
I wonder what Arc this will stop at
I hope at least it goes to the Pein Invasion arc so Sage Naruto can be in
hell yes. Sage Naruto and it's a done deal.
I wouldn't even mind some DLC if they can't get to the Pein arc before the game's release. Just hope they're going off the manga and not the anime but we all know that won't happen
Cyberconnect2 used to go off the manga, but I could see the problem of doing the Pein arc especially if the other countries haven't reached it yet. So wherever they are now (don't know) is a pretty good chance of where it's going to be at in the manga, or should say where it's going to get to.
they'll probably stop at the last arc the anime is ...
inb4 everyone picks Sasuke and/or Itachi online -_-
rofl I hope that won't be a problem
as long as this is a balanced fighter that shouldn't be a problem
lol it will be. Itachi was always my favorite in the previous installments of the Naruto games, but if it does become a problem I will chose someone else. Depending on how far it goes the character I personally would choose is up in the air.
If it's anything like the first's system, it'll be far from balanced. But then again that was the awakening mode I'm thinking of with the tailed naruto.
Yeah Itachi is one of my favorites too. Like @AridSpider said, I just hope it'll be balanced
Giant ethereal figure behind( or perhaps around ) Itachi could make him the most unbalanced fighter. Saying it this way so it won't be a full blown spoiler...
anime fighting game balance doesnt exist , stop believing it will happen guys . The narutimate series got the same kind of constant imbalance you see in every other fighting game anime adaptation : -the guys powered according to their level and popularity , like Itachi - and each game , the not so strong , possibly even weak , character from the serie , but suddenly gaining , through a serie of game design and mechanics flaw , some glitches or overpowered abilities . Like a few times Temari . Itachi has been overpowered the very first time he appeared in the game , and quite frankly that's how he should be . naruto games have never been balanced , what matter is hw fun is the gameplay , and how accurate a representation of the serie's spirit . Wich so far cyberconnect 2 constantly nails .
should be insanely powerful, but have a death counter when you play him
LOL JasonXE, realistically speaking, isn't Amaterasu supposed to be the most powerful move ever? And Sasuke, Itachi and Kakashi are my fav characters lol
@Eamon It's 'one' of the most powerful, there are also other certain jutsu that either rival the power or are more powerful. Just depends on the mission I suppose. Susano'o, Minato's (4th Hokage) Hiraishin no Jutsu (Flying thunder god). Then again though there are a lot of Forbidden Jutsu that haven't been shown that could rival Amateratsu. Then again we can always find out by playing online >:D! I finally found out which character I'm going to use Sasori and perhaps Tsunade every now and again; but Sasori the most. Forgot all about him somehow...
i like naruto because the other guy can be strong but that does not mean they will win...Jari perfect example
you're spot on.
lol, how come a shippuden game releases when shippuden doesnt even air on CARTOON(reality tv shows using live action humans)NETWORK.
people KNOW what time it is.. ANBU + torrents ftw Hey 360 guys....dont you guys want a sequel to that version that 'cant be done on the ps3' :) kidding but im glad all can enjoy this one as the last one was enjoyable despite its repetitiveness and i hope the extra support will keep CC pushing on
It actually air on Disney XD, but I stick to watching subs. I think they censor way more content then CN did.
why does everyone have 8 disagrees? btw this is awesome news.
Hell yes! See you online!
please god, 4 players Support and day one for sure.
wow everyone has allot of disagrees anyway awesome online play was needed for number one, glad 2 will have it
must be a stealth Bleach troll lol
lol luckily, like the consoles, i enjoy both
Unlike the consoles, I don't enjoy both :P I think bleach uses up alot of time on fillers which are quite boring. The story archs are getting really dull and dragged out, not to mention that fact that they're so predictable. Ichigo:I kill u Random Bad guy:You can't, I'm stronger Ichigo:No worries, I transform....again, somehow.
WTF who is stealth trolling disagrees omg. Anyway the first game was ok it did not suck but it was a disappointment mainly because i didn't get what i expected to get so for this one i will def wait for the reviews and see what they say but the lack of online play did it naruto hard but it did sell pretty good though.
imo the first one was dissapointing for one reason ... they had the basic mechanics nailed , the graphics were perfect , but two major misteps . They only precisely had the basics ... gone were most combos from the ps2 serie , and we even went back to only one super per character , and barely no transformation/special modes besides obvious one like tail naruto . And then the famous lack of online obviously . I think the second game would easily fix both issues
This thread is Late but ...aside from that i will F*CKING JIZZ my self when i open the packeging on this game i was more excited about this game then God of war 3 and i love god of war more than almost any game out there. i hope the 4 tail naruto isnt rigged because i no online people are going to spam him i hope sage mode naruto is in there even though he wont be pain better be in there,and the 8 tail killer bee better be in there but he most likely will be since sasuke his in the game with his unifrom and i'm guessing that the final fight with itachi and sasuke are in it since he has chidori kirin ( he used it in the trailer.THIS GAME WILL RAPE
Anyways can't wait for this game to release it might even have a lot more battles seeing as how Pein vs Naruto isn't to far away in the anime, I'd say by june the anime would hit that point. Good thing this is a sequel to the PS3 version that way we don't have to deal with a crappy port, because the first one was amazing. Also to those saying Hidan can't come back, kishimoto already confirmed he isn't dead yet, so who knows.
Naruto UNS is great, it only had missing online feature.
i'm glad to see people who like naruto on n4g.
Did anyone else notice the unbelievable amount of disagrees?
Steal troll, trolls.
It's really getting boring (manga) know. naruto's almost as emo as shinji from neon genesis now :/
with neji kubuto and suegetsu
I just hope the online play isn't laggy and i played alot of naruto ultimate ninja storm and there is some od combos with naruto in his 1 tail mode and there are some abusive moves you can do with characters that sometimes you cannot avoid or even counter i hope they fix those issues
