nsai.jpgKylara was kind enough to send in an extra large scan from Shonen Jump with the latest info on Naruto Shippuuden: Gekitou Ninja Taisen EX 2. Thanks! Obviously, more playable characters are going to be in the second game and Tomy is making a pretty big jump. Sai, Yamato, Kabuto, Orochimaru and timeskip Sasuke are confirmed for the game. Since the anime is still in the same arc some of these characters won't be on the air when Naruto Shippuuden: Gekitou Ninja Taisen EX 2 comes out on November 29.

    Yamato looks cool
    Sai’s justu looks awesome(New stage in the backround too)
    Kakashi’s Mangekyu Sharingan
    What the hell is Naruto doing?
    Kabuto without a headband, good(Orochimaru’s hideout in the background)
    Why the hell is Oro still using 5 pronged seall?

    I’m asking myself the same question ryne11, from the screenshots alone it looks like Orochimaru and Kabuto will be carbon copies of their N:GNT4 selves….:-/.

    Anyway, it looks like Naruto is taking damage and I’m more interested in finding gameplay videos of Sai in action, from what I read about him I would think he would be the hardest to add to the game.

    Yep, you guys got a point.. wth… is with the Orochimaru and Kabuto… No new ability’s or specials huh? I heard and pretty much saw for myself 30+ characters right? I’m just gald after playing GNT 1-4.. they toned up the original characters like Naruto, Sauske and Saukra…lol

    i think there could have been more specials in the game. everyone still does the same thing from the previous games. Rock lee, neji, hinata, chouji, shino, kiba, tsunade, orochimaru, kabuto, jiraiya. im sure they have learned something new in 2 damm years. Gaara has the most appealing special move.
