    Good screens. Shame they didn’t use Sakura’s ponytail. I like it more than the regular one.

    Also, http://storage.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/main02_l5_thumb.jpg What? Giving up on Temari Shikamaru?

  • StarWarudo

    Eh, looks like mostly everyone’s retained their same old ultimate jutsus. >.>

    • andref

      Glad I’m not the only one who noticed, though I was suspicious after seeing Ino’s petal scene

      • Reiko_Chan

        I was hoping they got new ones. So far this is my only problem with the game.

        • StarWarudo

          Same goes for everyone’s attack/combo animations. Kinda tired of seeing the same attacks for the past two games.

          • Matheus Mendes

            If they at least put new ultimates, the combos wouldn’t bother me anymore

      • StarWarudo

        I had to check that one twice as well, but it’s the same. I don’t know why CC2 couldn’t be bothered to at-least redo some of the ultimates after what, two games? At-least Gaara and Chouji seem to have something new.

  • Zurashii

    …I think they’re using “reincarnated” wrong…

    • Rohan Kishibe

      reincarnation is from the the roots “re” which means to come again/ or to repeat and “carne” which means meat/flesh, in other words, a body. So reincarnation in this sense mean Asuma’s soul has been put into flesh again for the second time (the first being the birth of his actual person. I guess what you’re thinking of is reincarnation in the hindu sense of having the same soul be put into different vessel. However, this is a legitimate and correct use of the word “reincarnated”.

  • AuraGuyChris

    Pfft, Tenten is one screenshot behind.

  • anthony apduhan

    I got a question will a fighting game competitive(FGC) or non-competitive(like this game) can exceed to 66-100 characters? I mean Tekken Tag 2 had 59 characters but Capcom didn’t even bother to exceed UMVC3′s roster from it’s predecessor MVC2.

    I mean 80 characters wooaah that’s alot! what next? 90 or 100 characters NSUNS4?

    • ResidentMetroid

      It’s because the combat system isn’t deep enough and in my opinion, doesn’t require much balance so the game can have that many characters. I get bored after using one character, there isn’t much depth to them. It really is just the same with everyone, attack>sub>jutsu repeat.

      But if you play other fighting games, their characters have much more moves waiting to be discovered by players.

      • Crimson_Cloud

        That’s true. This system is fun at the beginning but somehow it just gets boring. The main problem is attack. In other games you can punch or kick once, then defend and then chain different three combos etc. In this game you can only do the same pattern of attack with only verity at the middle and finishing blow, which gets different animation and movement. And the fact that you only have one special and one ultimate, which is too small for a world of Naruto.

      • anthony apduhan

        I mean can it exceed to 66-100 characters for example when there’s a crossover between Goku, Vegeta, Naruto, Sasuke, Luffy, Ichigo, Inuyasha, Seiya, Natsu, Tsuna, Shana, Maka & Soul, Spongebob, Danny Phantom, Korra, XJ9, Ben 10, Gen. Rex, PPG, Dexter, Jake Long, Kim Possible, Mickey Mouse, Jack Sparrow, Shrek, Ezio, Alex Mercer, Richter Belmont, Sonic, Snake, etc. in an MVC3 fighting engine and it’s mechanics with (QCForB HCBorF Z movement) Can it be possible?

  • KyoyaHibari

    Recycled Ultimates Jutsu…

  • Nitraion

    Hmm i feel the UJ is the same as before..

  • roockie112

    Sakura :ain’t no body got time for that

  • Crimson_Cloud

    Recycled ultimates, and the one which bothers me the most is Ino’s… again…

  • Life_and_Death

    This game would be so bad ass if they actually had moves for the characters. (Not that bullshit O,O,O,O,O, ^+O). Everybody’s combo pattern is the same, and that’s very lame. Also stop wasting character space by putting the same person twice. (or 4 times considering that Naruto and Sasuke each had 4 in Generations). Make each characters moves unique to them, and add more Justu’s for each person, I mean come on do you even watch the show NAMCO & BANDAI?. I seen a couple screenshots and most of the UJ’s are the same as the last 2 games. WTF!!!!! I pay good money for these God Damn games the least you could do is put some effort into it, not release a couple of over-the-top trailers that gets the customers hyped for no reason, then they buy the game to find out it’s the same as the last game with a few more characters. I’m not buying this game until I get back some positive reviews, because personally I was not impressed with Generations. STEP YOUR GAME UP NAMCO & BANDAI!!!
