By Spencer . November 11, 2008 . 2:43pm

Tomy plans to squeeze 35 characters into Naruto: Shippuuden Gekitou Ninja Taisen EX 3. Usually news like this would be good news, however, most of these characters were already in last year’s Naruto Wii game. This installment introduces a paltry five characters: Kurenai, Hidan, Kakazu, and two secret characters. The anime is progressing slowly in […]

Naruto Shippuuden: Gekitou Ninja Taisen EX 3 Needs A Better "Adventure" Mode

By Spencer . October 16, 2008 . 8:05pm

The two player versus mode in Naruto Shippuuden: Gekitou Ninja Taisen EX 3 is essentially the two character combat system Tomy will introduce in Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution 2. However, you won’t be getting an adventure mode which will be included in Naruto Shippuuden: Gekitou Ninja Taisen EX 3.   You’re not missing out […]

By Spencer . September 24, 2008 . 6:46am

Tomy sent V-Jump a clip of their yearly Nintendo Naruto game and for the most part Naruto Shippuuden: Gekitou Ninja Taisen EX 3 looks a lot like Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution 2 minus the whole original ANBU story. The two player tag team system will be implemented along with new Shippuuden characters Hidan and […]

Testing Kurenai in Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution 2

By Spencer . July 9, 2008 . 8:23pm

When I had a chance to play Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution 2 the first thing I did was select Kurenai. The leader of Team 8 doesn’t attack with illusions like in Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 3. Kurenai has in your face kicks and a few tree tricks. As for jutsus she can tie up another […]

Initial characters in Naruto Shippuden: Gekitou Ninja Taisen EX 2

By Spencer . December 3, 2007 . 10:25am

I barely dug into it, I only played a few fights in story mode over the weekend. Unlike the other Gekitou Ninja Taisen games there isn’t a tutorial battle. The first fight is between Gaara and Deidara. Yes, there is a small amount of overlapping, but before you know it you’re pummeling characters in the […]

Pre-time skip Naruto appears in Naruto Shippuden: Gekitou Ninja Taisen EX 2

I haven’t taken the plunge into Naruto Shippuden: Gekitou Ninja Taisen EX 2 yet, but the manual revealed a surprise for me. Young Naruto and Sasuke are in the game as playable characters!

Let’s see… Jiraya, Tsunade and Orochimaru are in this and their moves look similar to their combos in Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution. Wouldn’t it be funny if Eighting reused […]

Eighting, well known for Bloody Roar and the Naruto Gamecube games, is taking a lead role in developing the game’s engine. Between Fate/stay Night and Melty Blood, Type-Moon is making quite a name […]
