Hands on Naruto Shippuuden: Geiktou Ninja Taisen EX 2

By Spencer . September 20, 2007 . 7:43am

I hopped on Eighting’s new version of Naruto and I was pleasantly surprised by the number of blank character spots. If the demo is accurate we should see at least 30 characters in the final game. I took a chance to play Sasuke first. He has a wide fireball attack like Itachi and a powered […]

Kylara was kind enough to send in an extra large scan from Shonen Jump with the latest info on Naruto Shippuuden: Gekitou Ninja Taisen EX 2. Thanks! Obviously, more playable characters are going to be in the second game and Tomy is making a pretty big jump. Sai, Yamato, Kabuto, Orochimaru and timeskip Sasuke are […]

Hands on Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution’s four player mode

By Spencer . September 14, 2007 . 5:56pm

When I swung by Tomy’s headquarters I tested out the four player mode and I’m glad to say it’s a huge improvement over Naruto Shippuden: Geiktou Ninja Taisen EX. Eighting fixed the issues with the choppy frame rate with tweaks like playing with the shadows. The graphical differences are barely noticeable, but the frame rate […]

By Spencer . August 20, 2007 . 3:00pm

You knew it was in development and it was only a matter of time until Tomy announced it. However, I didn’t think it would be so soon. Tomy has Naruto Shippuden: Geiktou Ninja Taisen EX 2 scheduled to come out sometime this year. There are going to be 30 characters in the game, way more […]

Take a first look at Naruto and Sasuke in D3 Publisher’s upcoming Wii game, Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution. The video uses the two screen Konoha village battlefield from Naruto Shippuden: Geiktou Ninja Taisen EX and near the halfway mark Naruto slams Sasuke into the next screen. The kunai repelling move that Sasuke uses is […]

Hands on Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution

By Spencer . June 25, 2007 . 5:31pm

D3 publisher has a predicament with the Naruto license. Since retailers are cutting back on Gamecube shelf space and the Naruto episodes in Japan are years ahead of the rest of the world, they can no longer rely on localizing Eighting’s Japanese games. Instead Tomy, D3 and Eighting have to work together to develop Naruto […]

Mini games in Naruto Shippuden: Gekitou Ninja Taisen EX

By Spencer . March 6, 2007 . 9:46am

Naruto Shippuden: Gekitou Ninja Taisen EX barely takes advantage of the Wii remote in the fighting mode, but the three mini games are a different story. When you start the game only the shuriken throwing game is available, but by playing that mini game you can unlock “Shadow Clone watching” and “Rasengan Training”. Past the […]
