    I easily put over 20 hours into these demos. This will be utterly fantastic. Konoha’s Yellow Flash was always my favorite non Suigetsu, Naruto, Sasuke, Kiba, Obito, character to play as.

    I hope Namca Bandai shop has sorted out there issues and we can get the game closer to release date this time.

      do they ship out the game late or something?

      • XYZ_JolteonZ980

        Ni no kuni, we didnt get the game on release date from the namco bandai store rather, I got mine on that friday.

        • Shattered Heaven

          wow i made sure i got the next day air so whatever day it ships it comes the day after that though should ship it out much earlier so we can get it the date of release

    I dont really care about the Demo. I will just play once it launch. Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm is a good game except the Generation version.

  • Domii

    About damn time!!

    1000 years later, Naruto Blah Blah Ultimate Ninja Storm -Insert digit in the hundreds- HD Port.
    That’s just how repetitive this is getting.

      All of these games are pretty god damn unique and a blast to play…. the whole cynical smarm thing went of style a while ago

      • dotzeno

        I still miss and prefer the narutimate hero series gameplay. I’ll admit the storm series has great graphics, but that’s about all I really like about the storm series.

      • Nee Nee

        Writing down my thoughts count as cynical smarm? Get outta here man. I’ve played most of the Ultimate Ninja Storms and each one feels the same. I could just stick to one of em and have a blast with it. I’ll say it again, that’s just how repetitive this is getting. Nowhere near “unique”.

        • jordanbobordan

          Each game drastically changes the available mechanics and way the fights play out. Sure it’s on the same ENGINE, but the differences between each game are huge, generations plays totally differently than NUNS1

  • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

    Wait so you don’t play as the Fourth Hokage? I guess he was fighting the masked man at that time.

  • ResidentMetroid

    No demo for Xbox? How disappointing…

    • DemonKingAsura

      Of course it is, its just little bit later after the PS3 version.

    My body is ready

    I would love to play this demo! If only… my PS3 didn’t just die or stop working properly for me this Sunday night.

    It was fine around 8pm when I played COD:BO2 but 4 hours later my PS3 stopped working properly. It doesn’t boot up the Log In menu and it stays stuck on the screensaver/background layout and I can’t turn it off without pulling out the power cord and the controller can’t turn it on or off.

    This really sucks, my PS3 can turn on but I can’t use it AND MGR:R and NUNS3 are coming out really soon! :<

    It looks like I have to send it in to Sony, but I guess a HDD reset could fix it but I'm afraid I'll lose ALL of my save data… I did Back-Up my data on the Utility Back-Up option but that was MONTHS ago… I think in the Summer. I don't know if that means I'll lose the COD data, but it's online so I think I'm safe there.

    Next time I'm getting the PlayStation Plus Membership to back up my save data online. I had my slim model PS3 for 3 or so years and it finally crashes on me… I wonder if that black out, when I was playing Ni no Kuni, was the cause of it a week later? My poor PS3…

    • jordanbobordan

      Yeah unfortunately all sony would do is a hdd reset anyway. Honestly it looks like your only bet is to reset it : /

      • Christopher Nunes

        That sucks… so how do I do that? And will the Back-Up data I had before hand will still be there to use to restore my data?

      • Christopher Nunes

        I reset it… fixed my PS3, but all of my game data and saves… T_T
        They’re all gone. I really wished there was a way to save them all.
