    omg Namco Bandai actually confirming that one of their games will be coming overseas?!?!?!?!?! holy shizz this cant be true! they’re jus playing us right? i mean i dont remember the last time Namco Bandai Localized something for us LOL
    heres hoping they localize Project Versus J too then

    • Shane Guidaboni

      Dark Souls ring a bell?

    • Haseyo

      Namco is one of the better companies at localizing stuff that stands a small chance. Project Versus J will involving the various manga companies (however that works) so just like the previous ones, it’s not gonna happen.

  • GotoHell

    This is a surprise. I was expecting this game to only come out in Europe like the last 3DS Naruto game.

  • ZEROthefirst

    I’m not a fan of Naruto games, but this looks like it could be kind of fun.

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      Judging from your avatar, I’m sure you like Inti Creates games. I’m only interested because they’re developing it as well (I haven’t played any of the Storm games though)

      • ZEROthefirst

        lol yeah it’s the whole reason I’m looking at this game really, that and it looks like a silly fun type game.

  • Lester Paredes

    it sure looks cute.

  • Anime10121

    Buying this exclusively on the principal that it’s being made by Inti creates.

  • Göran Isacson

    Looks goofy and goodhumored and all, but that framerate was not as buttery smooth as I recall Zero could be… when there weren’t enemies all over the screen, of course.

  • Otoya

    Say YES TO THIS!!!!!!! Confirm getting this as enjoying the anime a lot!!!!!
