    Does anybody actually care about those three guys?I don’t know about the anime, but in the manga they never did anything worth of note.

    • andref

      Which ones are you talking about?

      • malek86

        Jugo, Suigetsu and Karin. Those three guys who accompanied Sasuke for a short while. They were so important for the plot, I couldn’t even remember their names until James reminded me.

        Well, admittedly, Naruto doesn’t even have a plot anymore. But I digress.

          The anime for now doesn’t seem like a plot is brewing but the manga being a bit farther has progressed to the point that a war is brewing. Karin I’ll admit has not done much and even in the manga her only use is her brain but even then
          *spoiler*Sasuke goes after the heads of the Hidden ninja villages and in the end he kills Danzo and almost finishes off Karin whereas Jugo and Suigetsu hold off a bunch of Samurai from the Iron village

          I think Karin had a lot of potential when she was first introduced, but I find that trio remarkably boring as-is, practically pointless, actually. Then again, a lot of Naruto characters ended up falling by the wayside that way. It’s too bad.

          Maybe it’s just my aversion to everything related to Sasuke, though.

          As for this game, I’ve never cared much for the anime, but I do read the manga every few weeks, but the game is stunning. I want it. Also, Itachi just hits all of the right notes for me.

    • If you mean Jugo, Suigetsu and Karin, then yes, I care :). Suigetsu is basically a more agile Zabuza, a character who never saw the light of day in UNS1. Jugo was a lot of fun in UNH 3 and his psycho killer personality makes for a really cool character. Karin was arguably one of the most broken characters in UNH 3 and she always makes me laugh, even if she never showed any combat abilities, so her moveset is kind of a joke using the generic moves of a typical ‘tsundere’ and was a lot of fun.

    Well I’ll be happy as long as they keep the cameos from other game series after Lars to 0. One cameo is enough we don’t need to have anyone else… Its naruto for crying out loud. Though if Kabuto is in the game it would be nice to have an alternative version of him after he planted Orochimaru’s genes into himself

  • shion16

    I peed myself

  • I wish namco bandai could treat their own tales of games like naruto… anyway this freaking pwnz, MAYBE THE LAST CHARACTER IS…. HAKU!?… you know, i always wondered why they never put haku or zabuza, they almost killed us with the flashbacks around those days, but they just get ignored now…

    • What do you mean the last character? And if they have Haku they definitely have Zabuza. Since they have the 4th as well, I’m really hoping Madara is in there, even though we really haven’t seen him fight enough to get any sort of move-set for him

  • zhemos

    Looks amazing. Can’t wait!

  • i can cry

  • xavier axol

    I still, would preferred if they implemented the playstation’s move and co-op. But dam they over did it this time. Bravo

  • [The Hunter] Doomrider

    Holy crap. Cinematic action indeed, this looks stunning! You’ve convinced me already, I don’t need to see anything else, really Namco.

  • Aoshi00

    I tried the demo, this is probably the best looking anime game ever at this point, CyberConnect2 should be making the Dragonball games. I couldn’t really get into the first UNS though, didn’t like the missions, but now I kind of regret selling it (it was the limited edition) so my collection wouldn’t be complete. The Akatsuki chars are very cool.

    • *For the record, I accidentally clicked Like instead of Reply, but that’s not to say I hate your post or anything like that*

      Have you seen any screens/trailers for Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2? I’m still trying to decide which game, this or that, take the crown for best-looking anime game

      • Aoshi00

        boo, you no like me post lol… I’ve played a bit of Raging Blast 1, I thought the graphics was horrible, to me it was worse than Burst Limit even though it had more chars, the char graphics were pretty sloppy and the repeated animation.. I guess it depends if you like DB or Naruto more. I couldn’t get into the first UNS, but Akatsuki is tempting enough to get this, not to mention no other anime game looks as good as this. I’ve been a huge DB fan for life, but they’ve done the Dragonball fighting games to death, and this is the first time the Akatsuki arc is covered so far, till the Pain fight.

        • Yeah, Raging Blast 1 didn’t look good, but 2 looks amazing. That’s what I’m saying. In fact, Siliconera just posted a new trailer. You should check it out or look at some of the high-def screenshots out there, woah mama

          • Aoshi00

            Plus the new “Eradicate the Super Saiyans” OVA.. I might get RB2 eventually, but UNS2 looks better than anything I’ve ever seen man.

      • without a doubt get this game

  • wharcraff

    Looks great. “hit that crab for maximum damage” Ero-Sennin.
