The video features a cinematic of Pain destroying the Leaf Village and Sage Naruto arriving at the scene. Also shown is video of Naruto and Sakura from free-roam mode.
Looks great. You want to say for those who not have neither read the Naruto manga or seen the Naruto anime, you should do that if you plan on picking up this game. It will drastically increase your enjoyment of the game I think imo.
... for a very long time now, and still. However, it's a shame the 'free-roam' is now changed to this new kind of isometric view (kinda 'old' Resident Evil style), instead of the top-down 3rd person view free-roam of the last game and of the 360 games...) It still looks amazing, and very much 'alive', but it's a bit of a disappointment. I wanted to run through Konoha and jump around and over buildings etc etc... Still a day-one must-buy for me though.
Yea I agree on the free roam to an extend. It's hard for me to make up a firm decision based on the little I saw. Perhaps the game is more battle focused and you get the chance to do less free roam, I dunno. I think I would prefer the top-down 3rd person free roam. Time will tell.
i prefe rthis style rather than the ONe city hub the first had ..it was fun for the first hours but then i grew tired of the same thing ... at least now you really feel like changing locations
IMO shippuden is far better than the original it has explained a lot of things in a genius way especially ----SPOILERS---- itaci's past and jiraya's past with nagato -----END OF SPOILERS---- I'm patiently waiting for episode 174 now PS;the sage of the six paths looks epic to the point i made him my avatar
I totally agree with your first statement. I will say thought if we never got to see the progression of the characters and the world they live in, it would of felt a little less grand. Masashi Kishimoto is but one master at telling stories.
--Spoiler free-- While your spoiler statements are true (Very good stuff and fantastic writing) - We have to remember that we cannot fully appreciate Shippuuden without the original series. In fact I would argue that the primary reason why you (we) are so impressed by Shippuuden is because of the time invested into the story and characters associated in the original. With that said.. This game could not be released soon enough!!!!!
Yep, gotta agree. Shippuden Going into the past of several ways was done well and gave new perspectives on some of the characters. As for the game, love the cinematic they did, was hoping it would be up to there at least in the anime, not like other games that stop way early on what the American dubs have gotten to. Also, glad to see they're going and adding online to the game, was one of the few things missing from the first. Though I miss the free-roam of the first game, was so much fun jumping around and having shadow clones I think throw me far off into the distance. p.s. Can't wait till episode 174 as well.
epic naruto game. Cant wait
It looks amazing. I can't wait to beat up all you guys online with my girl Ino!
Lmao i swear you are just a guy who tries really hard to fulfill every stereotype of a female. Every female anime fan i know thinks Ino is a trash groupie character. But hey your comments are funny so keep doing what you do
Hinata is much better as a character and as a fighter than Ino. *SPOILER* Hell, she took on Pain while Ino was crying. *END OF SPOILER*
So it's not really open world then. But it's nice to actually explore and there's actually more NPCs walking around and people to talk to unlike the first. I hope it's subbed in english while keep the japanese voices intact.
It will have the original Japanese voices and subtitles, they confirmed it before.
If it wasnt for a certain console gimping us this wouldn't have happened! lol jk But yea this is like how it was in Ultimate ninja 2, which is disappointing because i really wanted to explore like i did in UNS :(
Yah, exploration in the first game was fun as hell. Jumping around, and exploring all the areas, and finding all the little hidden items.
like the fully loaded towns from the gimped system. With real 3d platforming
It kinda looks like the free roaming got dumbed down though...maybe because of the 360s disk space...idk..lol. Not trying to be a fanboy or anything, just being serious... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
like this http://www.youtube.com/watc... funny how we got any entire world and you got 1 town lol
Naruto Sukkkkkk........ DBZ ALL Day
ARRRRGH DBZ FANBOY BEGONE!!! lol i use to love dbz but then it ended and i started watching Naruto...Naruto kicks DBZ ass any day of the week! Except FMA is the best anime ever sorry Kishimoto, Toriyama :(
Looks amazing, no please give me a BLEACH or ONE PIECE fighting game like this!!!!
or FullMetal Alchemist. Either of tgose 3, I want HD games of!
There's an old Bleach fighting game, 4 players at once, but I think it was Japan only. Had all the Bankais and sh!t in it, was fun. Though Tousen was cheap as hell against all players when he used his. Played it on my friends modden wii like 3 years ago.
OMG. Free roam in UNS1 was boring. "free roam" in UNS2 looks awesome. Reminds me of FF8.
Free roam in 1 you could just over buildings, explore around, and they had little hidden items. They recreated like the whole city from the anime. This one while it may remind you of FF8, its not as great as the first. When you watch an anime where people can climbup / leap over buildings and such, being able to walk around on the street level only is a huge jump backwards. Sure you can go into shops and see the inside, but all you do in there is buy stuff, which in the first game you'd go to the front of the store and instead of going in all the way, you'd get the vendor menu after going in a few feet. I'd rather be able to scale buildings and throw myself hundreds of feet like in the first game.
climbing was fun for the first hour. but I got bored of the city. It was a total waste.
I agree that was the worst part of the game, the minigames were repetitive and it was just boring in general to do the free roam.
