Watch: Naruto Shippuden: Gekitou Ninja Taisen EX footage

By Spencer . February 28, 2007 . 3:11pm

Last night my copy of Naruto Shippuden: Gekitou Ninja Taisen EX finally arrived. Here is how the game starts up.

 

 

When you unwrap the game seven out of the fourteen characters are playable: Naruto, Sakura, Kakashi, Guy, Lee, Neji and Gaara. Playing through the story mode is the way to unlock some new characters and there is a video clip from the story mode where Naruto and Sakura battle Kakashi.

 

 

Besides Naruto’s new air Rasengan combo there is a new cover system in Naruto EX. When you’re close enough to a crate or a rock you can sidestep by pressing B or Z and hide behind the object. While behind a crate you can surprise an enemy with an attack shaking the remote for a weak attack or by pressing A to do a jutsu. Naruto makes a shadow clone roll out when he gets out of cover and unlike the other Clash of Ninja / Gekitou Ninja Taisen games Naruto’s shadow clone stays out attacking other players until Naruto runs out of chakra.

    This will suck for America.

    Clash of Ninja 3 was confirmed for the Wii, with extra character(s) not in the original and mini-games.

    If this gets released in america after Wii GNT 3 and 4, Everyone will think it is crappy. Maybe when EX is released in the US, it will have extra characters.

    Meh, I am looking too far into the future, which is unlike me, since noone knows what the future will bring

    “unlike the other Clash of Ninja / Gekitou Ninja Taisen games Naruto’s shadow clone stays out attacking other players until Naruto runs out of chakra”

    So you never played GNT 4? That was Naruto’s back+A. Summoned a kage bunshin that stayed out until it got hit, or until Naruto ran out of chakra…

    Also, was anyone else disappointed at the character selection? We had always hoped that GNT 5 would allow for pre or post-time-skip characters. I understand that Shippuden is its own series and all, but they should have added some of the other time-skip characters. Other Akatsuki, Chouji, Shikamaru, FTKN…. Asuma should have been in there. Oh, and covering Kakashi Gaiden would have been sweet. Yondaime in there…. Also, Sasori should have all forms playable.

    Sorry, I just needed to vent about this. I mean, as of right now, GNT4 is still a way better game than EX…

    “If this gets released in america after Wii GNT 3 and 4, Everyone will think it is crappy.”
    It certainly SOUNDS crappy, at least in terms of roster. Though I suppose that’s mostly Kishimoto’s fault for neglecting a sizable chunk of the cast since the timeskip *coughTeam8especiallyHinatacough*
