Temari and Chouji rise to become Xbox 360 ninjas

temari.jpgUbisoft’s Naruto: Rise of Ninja updates seem to be evading attention, but we’re still catching them. Up on the Xbox Live Marketplace is another downloadable pack. For 500 Microsoft Points ($6.25) you can purchase Chouji, Temari and two additional maps. Not sure if these characters are worth your cash? You can test them for a handful plays just like the characters and maps from the first downloadable pack. It seems like Ubisoft is releasing these character packs rather quickly so you may want to cross your fingers for a discounted super bundle with all of the pay-for-play characters in the next few weeks.

    Finally my favorite Naruto character, Temari! ^^

  • I love how they give you half a game for the regular price… and then charge you to fill it up with everything you should have got to begin with. Rise of a Ninja is a pretty bad game anyways.

    @Jaxel: it’s not that good eh? I heard there’s lots of not so fun missions, and I was so sure I would be buying this game down the line.

    I’m a little fed up w/ all these micro-transactions too, like Katamari giving you a handful of levels and expect you to “buy” more if you want to really have fun w/ the game. I am not one to complain, but $59.99 is a pretty steep price alrdy to begin w/, so for them to only include a portion of the game just seems….

    They’re just priming gamers for the inevitable time where all initial game purchases become little more than subscription starters.

  • TacoBeaver

    In Panama wii games cost 60 to 70 bucks so dont complain bout the price, and 360 games are like 75 to 87

  • Aoshi00

    @TacoBeaver: Yes, and in Jpn games cost much more in general than in the US, I remember importing FF XII for $70-80.

    I don’t mind shelling out a little more for a next gen game, or even a good game on any platform. But for that money to buy 3/4 of or half a game, yes, I think as gamers and consumers, we do have a right to be discontent rather than praising them.

    And I feel for you to get half a game for 80 bucks..

  • Aoshi00

    @yurei: I really fear for that day, but it seems to be going into that direction as next gen games take a lot of money to make and they need to squeeze every penny out of us. $50/60 is our starter pack and we need to buy booster packs for a new char or a map, and in Gran Turismo buying cars..

    I don’t mean to sound like a cheapskate at all, as I gladly import even when it’s not cheap, I’m just resistant to the idea of “incomplete” version of games.

  • Sharkmenow

    Does anybody even care? This game is complete garbage anyways. Naruto PS3 project or a revamped GNT EX3 couldn’t come sooner.

    It is finally here the seqeul to naruto clash of ninja revolution. Naruto: Clash if Ninja Revolution 2 is Rumored by Tomy, and D3 publisher, and said it is coming out October/ November,2008. Sadly there is no proof yet of what I am saying, but I emailed Tomy and they said there is going to be another naruto for wii, made by them along with D3 publisher, 8ing, Shonen Jump, and Viz media. Stick around on certain game areas, and I assure you there will be proof of it coming out in 2008. So stay on game sites like this for more info, and you will probably see previews in march, 2008, and I reccomend you look at them if you don’t believe me. It is only for wii

  • T-MAc

    I Have the game

    And for a game that is seemingly terrible, isn’t half bad

    I love the fight sequences and its just great when you get a new memo clip and exploding kunais.

    I give it a 7.8 out of 10
