Sage Mode Naruto Is Ready For A Fight

By Spencer . September 22, 2010 . 12:38pm

In Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 he’ll have plenty of characters to battle. The game has over forty and many of them, including Sasuke, Karin, Kakuzu, and Killer Bee in his eight-tails form, are seen in this trailer.



He isn’t in this trailer, but Minato, the fourth Hokage, is a playable character in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2. Namco Bandai says Minato will be the last character players unlock, unless they use a code provided with the European limited edition which makes him playable from the start.


So far, Namco Bandai have not announced any pre-order bonuses or Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 promotional items for North America. The game comes out on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 19.

    Wow, a SoT commercial! I totally forgot that show existed. They really butchered the book storyline (moreso than Goodkind himself did in the later books). Turning the father into a brother? Hopefully the SoIaF show doesn’t do something similar.

    Erm, okay, enough about that.

    I know it’s been said over and over, but this game continually impresses me with its graphics. It interests me even though I’m not a fan of the Naruto anime (the manga can be good at times, though). This seems like one of those games that you play just to stare at the graphics in.

      Or play just so you can always see your favorite over the top jutsus anytime you want just by playing as the character who uses them. For instance, didn’t see enough four-tails naruto? play the game and use it when you unlock it.

        yahh you’re right but ther will be 6 tails naruto to unlock right before minato and madara will be in the game

        • andref

          can you use six tails?

          • cedo66

            you can use the 6 tails its confirmed on a europe side and if you see in some screenshots when naruto is in the 4 tails mode he can transform one more time.
            at the end of its chakra bar you can see the transform on sign

  • OMGG! just wow , the best cell shading! i see ever!

  • The best Naruto game of all time, and possibly best shonen anime game, and dare I say it, the most anticipated anime game of all time! This is going to be awesome. Naruto is perhaps the major reason why I love Namco Bandai so much, they continually deliver the Naruto goods and with CC2 too! Shinra Tensei! Pain!!! Suigetsu!!!! AWESOME!!!!! lol!!!!!! GOTY 2010!!!!

      take it easy man xD
      you have to play it first

      • Take it easy? Impossible. I can not state how long I have been waiting for this game. The game has already exceeded all of my expectations and Ive but played just the demo. To me, it truly is the epitome of epic videogame goodness!

  • joesz

    we need gecko moria as a guest character!

    • shion16

      why so random xD?

      • joesz

        Gecko moria changed my life with his magnificent laugh!
        Beside gecko moria would own them all in that game with his shadow’s asgard
        and would be an awesome shadow manipulator! he would own the nara clan with his burikku batto!
        I would really like him to be in it!

        • shion16

          well his chi chi chi was cool and all that
          but a random shichibukai(now hes a former shichibukai right?) in a naruto game xD?

          • joesz

            correction:kiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiishishishishishishishishi! kiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiishishishishishishishishi!

            yes that’s the beauty of it.well, at least he’s a shounen jump character and he’s a shadow manipulator,so he would be a possible character in the game,
            and please don’t refer to him as “random”,he’s one of my fav characters in the series,I love his attitude,he’s courageous,evil,mad,powerful..yet a coward.
            I know they brought lars in because he got his cloths from kishimoto,But I mean c’mon, he would get kicked in a minute.
            The tekken and naruto chemistry does not work at all.

          • cedo66

            it is so true its jus becaus his costume is from kishimoto, i don’t think he will be important in the game

    • Um…that’s like saying they should put naruto in marvel vs capcom 3. It may be cool but doesn’t really make sense

      • joesz

        lol! does putting larson in naruto make sense to you?

  • pridesin

    Do you guys think this game would be good just for the single playing mode (off-online game-play)??
    I am usually into single playing mode, so I am not sure if it would be wise to buy this one (though I kind of want to own at least one naruto game).

    • The games are usually always pretty robust on the single player mode and this one is lengthy. It covers so much of Shippuden. And looking at the trophy/achievement list, should guarantee at least 30 hours of solid playtime. (only two online trophies…)

      • pridesin

        Thank you for the reply. Well, 30 hours of single play is enough for me to buy this one. (By the way, you comment a lot in siliconera.)

    • Oh, definitely. I only played the multiplayer with friends a few times with the first one and I still put it well over 40 hours into it, maybe even over 50. There weren’t any trophies back then, but I still wanted to get that 100 percent, so I did. If you’re the kind of guy who just wants to go through single-player once with no side-quests or anything, you’ll probably get under 8 hours depending on skill level, though

  • Draparde

    Needs moar kushina.(though i know she wont be in any games anytime soon…if at all V_V )

    on another note: i’m loving how the game looks, and cant wait to beat people up in it!

  • Aoshi00

    Again, watching the trailer literally takes my breath away. Can any anime game get better than this? They should be the ones doing the DB games… Asura’s Wrath looks pretty amazing too. “Shinra Tensei” (he’s Raiden’s Jpn VA in MGS btw).. just awesome…

    • This is the creme of the crop of shonen anime goodness! Even the cinematics carried the same emotional weight of the show! I so can not wait!!!!

    • I’m still imagining how awesome .hack on the PS3/360 would be if CC2 decides to develop it. Mmmmm

  • Wow 0_0 i Cant Believe There Is Only 1 Month To Go X3 .

  • Oh my freaking gawd! they added so many events that didnt happen in show, and thats not a bad thing!! Sasuke’s Chidori Vs Naruto Oodama Rasengan with some flashback effect..wooah this gonna be goooodd:-)
