Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution will include the Second Tsuchikage, Third Raikage, Second Mizukage and Fourth Kazekage as playable characters, and this morning, Namco Bandai shared new screenshots with them included.


You can view the screenshots below. Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution is slated for release sometime in 2014 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

    so.. will Shukaku finally be playable?

    that trollkage pic!

    If the game actually goes up to the point where Team 7 does there summons that isn’t so bad. There isn’t much more revealed or new characters introduced beyond that. It’s actually pretty disappointing though that by now, story wise, the other Kage are actually outdated. Still, I’m excited about 100 playable characters, though I suspects it’s really going to be around 80 or so with six different Narutos, 6 different Sasuke, and a bunch of different costumes that somehow constitute a completely different character. Still, though progress.

    What I’m really hope for is updated movesets for some characters. Some have had the same movesets from three games ago, even though within the story they have displayed new jutsus.

    • I feel the exact same way– at this point no one really cares about the kage anymore… we want costumes and more/new movesets, not more flashy specials that get stale after a while.

      I’m not planning on getting Revolution for my own multitude of reasons, but I always hope that just maybe CC2 will come around…. I can’t really say they are from what I’ve seen so far.

    • The last game had around 13+ Narutos, 10+ Sasukes, and.. yeah, Costumes took some of the character slots. Well, hey! At least we are getting a completely new character! Mecha Naruto! The “Metal Sonic x Mazinkaiser” of the Narutoverse!

      This!! Honestly, I think doing the math, if they added in the PTS characters from generations, and the new people from Storm 3, I think it’d be around 95 characters or so? I’m pretty sure i’m off, but I think i’m close. But almost EVERYONE, needs new movesets and jutsus. Thinking about it more and more, I can leave a character alone, not use them for 6 months plus, not play for like 2 games, and use them like I never left them because the movesets have been exactly the same for so long.

    I can’t wait until we get to the point in a Naruto game where they will pull a DBZ and just give us literally everyone, even the most obscure characters, I remember Naruto Ultimate Ninja 3 was literally the best with who we knew about for the time.

    • subsamuel01

      That’s not going to happen until the anime ends which isn’t any time soon.

      • DaiRaiOh

        To be honest, the manga doesn’t have that much longer to it, so I can see it happening within 3 or so years

        • Herok♞

          3 or so years the manga will probably be over by 2015 unless kishimoto stretches it out

      • Suzaku

        The manga is probably ending this year (I’m betting around the 15th anniversary), and the anime isn’t far behind. There’s going to be a short filler arc in February, and that might very well be the last filler the anime needs to keep it from catching up before the manga ends.

        • Rayhan PromisedGallery

          how the hell will they put filler in the middle of final battle? Longer flashback for Obito as Tobi?

          • They put tons of crappy fillers throughout the war. It’s not impossible.

    • Saphiren

      I think that the manga will end this year, so the next game probably will be the best in number of characters. Something like DBZ Tenkaichi 3 in number of characters.

      But, i´m more worried about the gameplay. I hope that they can make a nice fighting system with less infinites/exploits, less OP characters. .. :

  • andref

    So one pic looks like Tien’s signature attack and get another kage using the spirit gun……

    • Suzaku

      Nope. The first is using a technique that can break things down to their basic particles, and the second is using the “water gun” technique where he fires a pressurized stream of water through his opponent.

      • andref

        You read way too much into my comment, I know this is Naruto, so there is no way they would use anything from DBZ or Yu Yu Hakusho. The only thing I’m mentioning is that the way they are using their techniques is similar to other character’s methods of firing their respective attacks.

  • One day, you’ll be playable Anko, one day.


    • zferolie

      She was playable in the Gamecube and Wii games… at least we have those…

      • Asura

        Naruto Gekitou Ninja Taisen 4 will probably remain the best anime fighting game ever made.

        • Slayven19

          I still like Clash of ninja revolution 3 the best but 4 is a close second. However its kinda dumb that they just stopped making the series altogether.

          • Asura

            CoNR3 was great too, but the tight feel of 4 and the extended combos due to chakra gain being in favor of the attacker rather than the defender easily puts it in #1 place for me.

    • Fidelis

      Look at this guy complaining about Anko.
      Imagine how us Dosu fans feel.
      Konoha Senki was the ONLY one..

  • 栗場 江理久

    I wonder if those other sound ninja would be playable, Dosu, Kin and Zaku ._. I remember them mentioning back around generations that they weren’t playable, but that means they DID look around for some more characters.

  • BL4CKSH33P

    I dont care how many characters there ( well I do but) it is more important that they get rid if this half-assed fighting system. It sucks. The story is amazing but the gameplay is so regurgitated. I was hoping when they dropped ‘storm’ from the title that it would be something new but no…

  • Göran Isacson

    2nd Mizukages pompadour is still the most fantastic kage hairdo, and I shan’t hear any arguments to the opposite. That being said, look at Sakura and her badass pose… and then she hangs back and heals a bunch of noname shinobi that nobody cares about and that has zero storypull or reason for us to care about them… oh well… maybe she’ll be important in the final final battle… maybe…

  • The Watcher

    Zetsu and Anko will be available as expansion characters in Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution Ultra Rebirth Parallel World Remix.

  • And here I am, still hoping for them to release or confirme some Clash of Ninja game. We’re still missing the american version of Gekitou Ninja Taisen Special! :C
