Naruto Shippuden: Clash of Ninja Revolution 3 Takes A Cue From Marvel vs. Capcom

“As you’re playing these tag team modes, all of the characters have assist attacks a la Marvel vs. Capcom or something like that where you can call in a buddy for a brief moment to attack your enemy, pressure them or set them up for a combo,” Mike Jones, Associate Producer at Tomy, explained on a conference call.

 

Unlike Capcom’s fighter, Tomy’s game doesn’t have a dedicated assist button. The Z button controls character swaps and assists on the Gamecube controller, the preferred way to play Clash of Ninja Revolution. Alone, the Z button does a defensive tag. Hold forward and press Z to do an offensive tag where a partner character will jump in with a kick or a punch. This costs a little more chakra than a regular tag. Assist moves are done with Z and down. Each character has a different assist attack and are invulnerable when they jump into battle. Unlike Marvel vs. Capcom 2 you can’t hit assist characters with a super move. Assists consume chakra to prevent spamming.

 

Naruto Shippuden: Clash of Ninja Revolution 3 also adds wake up moves to the system. If you think you’re opponent is going to strike with a jutsu move, you can counter with a wake up attack. This move grants a few frames of invulnerability which gives waking up players an edge even if an opponent is striking. If you want to retreat, you can use a wake up teleport by pressing strong attack while getting up. Teleporting drains half your chakra, but guarantees you’ll be out of harms way.

 

Eighting is also creating a Wi-Fi mode for Naruto Shippuden: Clash of Ninja Revolution 3. Unfortunately, it will not support Wii Speak, but Tomy promises you won’t have to use friend codes to fight another player. Naruto Shippuden: Clash of Ninja Revolution 3 has two vs. two ranked matches, rival matches, and random matches where opponents will be selected depending on their rank (genin, jonin, etc.). Each online player also has a ninja card that records stats. In addition to an overall win/loss ratio, ninja cards have individual stats for matches against friends and rivals.
