Initial characters in Naruto Shippuden: Gekitou Ninja Taisen EX 2

By Spencer . December 3, 2007 . 10:25am


I barely dug into it, I only played a few fights in story mode over the weekend. Unlike the other Gekitou Ninja Taisen games there isn’t a tutorial battle. The first fight is between Gaara and Deidara. Yes, there is a small amount of overlapping, but before you know it you’re pummeling characters in the current Shippuden arc. Unlike EX1, Naruto Shippunden: Gekitou Ninja Taisen EX2 has plenty of four player battles in the story mode. They flow smoothly too because Eighting used the shadow fix, which was introduced in Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution.


In case you were wondering what characters you can play with right away that’s the initial list after loading clear data from EX1. More impressions coming after story mode and some character unlocks.

    let us know how the new characters play. I’m especially interested in deidara, sai and yamato, since sasori seems like he’d be a kankuro clone.

  • Uzumaki Kiba

    Wasn’t Sasori broken as hell in the last game? Or was he underpowered?

    I forget, but there was something that made him unplayable.

    yeah, i just got this game, but its gonna take a while to unlock the characters. I think that they fixed up Sasori(in puppet) a lot, and it reminds me of gekitou ninja taisen 4, because you can use the gamecube controllers (best way to do it, in my opinion)
