    Didnt realize there was a market for folks wanting to play as the red hot habenero. I hope this means we get that Minato in that incredibly cool jacket.

  • Not knowing anything about Naruto’s story, I thought the title was a joke at first

    • Towel

      Double entendre?

  • andref

    Does anyone know what sort of attacks she is even capable of? I don’t quite remember much of her besides her having a hot temper and being the previous container for the kyuubi

    • malek86

      That has never stopped anyone from putting characters in anime fighting games though. After all, they can easily just invent something, like they did in so many DBZ games.

      • andref

        Though unlike DBZ fighting games few characters in past naruto games have completely original movesets

    • Red Anti-hero

      She fights with a frying pan -_-

    • subsamuel01

      Based on the scan showing her in her home clothes and fighting with a frying pan I think she’s going to be a comedic fighter like Karin. Kind of disappointing.

    • VietKnight

      Think more like Ino and Sakura type fighters with ultimate like Shikamaru

    • MSJ

      chakra chains to hold down to nine tails.

    • greeeed

      in anime/manga = chaka chain + seal
      in this game = frying pan…

  • MSJ

    okay NOW you’ve got my attention.

  • Paul Rodriguez

    This is shaping up to be my most anticipated game in the Ultimate Ninja series. All I need to hear that it will also be coming to current gen systems and I’ll be super happy.

  • Son of a Smooosh

    Hey, Naruto!

    Yo mama! HAH!


  • Demeanor

    Wasn’t it NAMIkaze? I agree he had suicide tendencies, but… XD

    • gulabjamal

      Omg ppl need to notice this comment. LMAO

    • Ciphermask

      That. Is. Great.
      You deserve points for that one.

  • NeptuniasBeard

    Naruto: You know who else is joining the roster of Ultimate Ninja a Storm Revolution? My MOM!

    • Harvey Tejada Loto

    Was super hyped for this and was planning to possibly main her, then read the source article only to discover her weapon of choice is a frying pan…..really? Of all the possibilities that chakra chains could have provided are they saying they just gave her a frying pan.

    • harmonyworld

      I know right!
      I got upset about that too!
      She had potential and they just made her “mom with a frying pan” and “freak out angry lady mode” with the hair and comical angry face
      They could’ve used the chakra chains and given her the road to ninja jounin uniform she had.

      • Thrasher429

        Yeah it’s so frustrating too, just imagining the possibilities. Melee could of used chakra chains as a whip or something and some of the jutsus could have involved either yanking opponents into the ground, throwing them or even something to do with barriers and Fuinjutsu But nope, frying pan.

        • Syn

          I think youre giving the series a little too much credit..its does have that shallow combat system..Maybe the next one will have her use her chains and have some depth to the combat as well.

  • Christian Wright

    They should really stop throwing characters in this game. The gameplay is also starting to become a little boring so why throw in side characters with most likely generic movesets to dull down the experience even more? If that’s the case, I’d like to play as Karui

    • harmonyworld

      I do and they were friggin awesome!
      I miss ’em so much~

  • Smiech

    Seriously? Who’s next? The friggin’ Rower from the Zabuza arc?

    …Actually, I want this now. Make it happen!

    • Maybe not, but Inari’s highly possible once they put the next generation (Konohamaru and his team) in the games. And you know Konohamaru is /very/ possible.

    • ShadowDivz

      You’re just jelly because The Rower is the Sage of Six Paths.

  • Aspenharls

    Oh no, let’s not put in popular characters who have been shown to fight, let’s throw in Naruto’s mother, with very little shown fighting, just for shits and giggles! At this point, I wouldn’t doubt Ebisu in the playable roster!

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    running out of characters? Why not more Guests like….hmmmm idk how about….. Joestar

    • Joseph Santee

      Joseph Joestar as Naruto.

      My brain just broke.

      “Next you’re gonna say, “Believe It!””

      “Believe it-” (shocked expression)

      Oh, y’know, it could be Jonathan, but I can’t picture Jonathan looking that cocky.

  • Gojira Twit

    Okay CC2, look. You don’t HAVE to make a new Naruto every year. You can wait until there are actual new characters to include before you make a new one. There are options that don’t involve fishing from the bottom of the barrel.

  • Invisbin

    People upset with getting characters they know they won’t play lol….I for one don’t mind these additions. I’m sure they’ll save the last couple for the final game. I find it funny that they have kimimaro but not the sound 4

    • Nice Boat Quatro

      Well, the sound 4 didn’t appear in the war as far as I remember

  • leingod

    So, did the manga end? Last time I saw, they were fighting that huge-ass thing.

  • Kevin Lima Ferreira

    Finally!! I was waiting for this! Now I can make a team with Naruto, Kushina and Minato! =D

  • Yeah kushina <3 Super must buy
