Pre-time skip Naruto appears in Naruto Shippuden: Gekitou Ninja Taisen EX 2

I haven’t taken the plunge into Naruto Shippuden: Gekitou Ninja Taisen EX 2 yet, but the manual revealed a surprise for me. Young Naruto and Sasuke are in the game as playable characters! I’m guessing Eighting decided to bring in the characters they made for Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution into the Japanese game as a treat for fans. I can’t wait to pit pre-time skip Sasuke against his sword-wielding future self Sasuke so check back for impressions.

    That sounds really half-assed…

  • KageNaruto

    Umm… I don’t get this Revolution stuff you talked about. There were 4 Gekitou Ninja Taisen Games before the EX ones came out-_-…

  • @KageNaruto – You know Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution… the first US Wii Naruto game? It has all new models and differences from GNT3.

  • Gasshu

    @ Spencer – Actually, Tomy America just spruced up the GNT3 character models a bit. They are exactly the same, but a bit different resolution and color clarity wise. I compared both games, and have come to this conclusion: Revolution is an enhanced and edited port of GNT3. The menus and music are even the same! Tomy America needs to come clean with this info, but they probably never will. -_-
    I’m just informing as a fellow fan, if you know this info already, it’s okay. :)
    Anyway, keep up the awesome posts!

    4TK Naruto should have been playable

  • @Gasshu – It’s a little more than just character art cleaning for Naruto. In GNT3 Naruto’s back + A move is a Sexy Jutsu counter. In Clash of Ninja Revolution he summons a shadow clone just like the older Naruto in Naruto Shippuden: GNT EX 1. Also you didn’t have the stage knockouts or the crates in GNT3, that was from EX too.

    @Spencer – That’s what I meant when I said edited. ;)
    I would have listed out every single edit/enhancement, but I figured everyone could pick them out. Also, the clone animation and actions came out of GNT4, which is another game that content was taken from. (Kisame in particular) The only real things that made it from EX is the game engine, graphical effects, control scheme, mini games, and some select stages. Character models of Itachi and Kisame were not even pulled from EX, nor anyone else despite what Tomy America tried to say.

    I forgot to add the bit about the stage shifting and obsticals in my above post. (consider this a correction to it)
