Tomy plans to squeeze 35 characters into Naruto: Shippuuden Gekitou Ninja Taisen EX 3. Usually news like this would be good news, however, most of these characters were already in last year’s Naruto Wii game. This installment introduces a paltry five characters: Kurenai, Hidan, Kakazu, and two secret characters. The anime is progressing slowly in Japan which could be one reason why Tomy wasn’t able to add in as many new characters as they wanted to. Still, paying 6,800 yen ($70) for a handful of new characters might not be worth it, especially if you own Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution 2. Tag team battles rock, but you just know Tomy is going to release another Naruto game next year with even more characters. Hopefully, more than five.
Here’s the announced roster so far:
New to EX3
+ 2 secret characters
