  • ResidentMetroid

    Meh, all these bells and whistles are cool and all but I still want more than just new characters and costumes.

    • TheGameTagerZ

      So then what do you want?

      • andref

        maybe he wants a cookie

        • ResidentMetroid

          I’m hungry right now, yeah.

      • ResidentMetroid

        I want world domination! Heh, no but I want to really see from this game is something new and exciting to the gameplay. Something that makes me wanting go back for more each time I finish a match.

        • Moongem

          Maybe if they added a new mode… oh, I don’t know, something where you don’t just have to fight ONE person at a time that also opened up possibilities for co-op. Or, maybe if they added a ringout feature or those class, cinematic boss battles.

          Hell, maybe they should give us some fan service and give use some swanky alternate costumes.

          Oh wait.

          • ResidentMetroid

            Did you even actually read what I posted? I don’t care much for ring outs and costumes when the gameplay gets old real quick.

            Cinematic boss battles aren’t anything new :P

    • I’m with you. Gameplay hasn’t changed much. For a game that has been said to be in development for 2 and a half years they’ve barely changed a thing.

  • Göran Isacson

    “Banana Palm” is still the silliest name I’ve ever heard for a very lethal weapon. Like, I get that it was probably taken from some kind of myth or whatever, but still… it is just so SILLY.

    • Ginkaku and Kinkaku, and their weapons, come from Journey to the West.

  • XGriever

    where was it stated that the brothers will be playable?

    • TheGameTagerZ

      In the scan. They must of translated this but I knew this yesterday

      • XGriever

        so this is 100% confirmed then? since they look pretty much boss battle only from the scan.

  • burnfist23

    Oh hey look. It’s the worst characters Kishimoto ever created.

    • samael789

      No, that would be Tobi post-reveal. Or Pain before he died.

      • burnfist23

        I don’t know. A bunch of nobodies having the power of a jinchuriki because the kyuubi barfed them out is still the dumbest idea I’ve ever heard.

        • samael789

          It’s not because the Kurama barfed them out. They feasted on his flesh while inside him.

  • Klaus00

    Konohamaru , CS2 Jugo , Butterfly Choji and Omoi playable pls :v

    • Δημήτριος Γλύκας

      choji will have butterfly mode in the game….

  • Yu_TheKing

    Waiting for all the Jinchurikis’ reveal + Kurenai (PLAYABLE) then I’ll be perhaps contented with the characters.

  • YourAshyAss_Elbows

    That Substitution jutsu should be limited to 2 per round. you should have to earn it instead of it refilling

  • shaolinsword

    Does this game go up to the end of the current manga/anime arc? I haven’t really been paying attention apart from the odd stories on here

    • Apparently, all the way to fighting the masked man (and most likely his reveal).

      • shaolinsword


        I was hoping it would go up to the current manga chapters (because the fight would be awesome) but we can’t have it all

  • Riseabovethesky

    I want to see their long-lost bronze brother.
