Aah Naruto games, truly you are the Call of Duty of annual fighting genre releases. Well clap your hands together and raise your fingers in weird poses, because you can bet your ass that little to nothing will have changed in the next release, but at least it’ll look pretty-no-jutsu.
So what’s the hook to get you to pre-order the exact same game sucka? According to my Bandai Namco no jutsu, variant outfits. Lots and lots of variant outfits, as well as the chance to play as Obito Uchiha:
Today is a beautiful day to be a Naruto Shippuden fan; Bandai Namco Games announced earlier lot of exciting stuff!
First things first: All the players Pre-Ordering the game will get free Samurai outfits for their favourite heroes, Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura. Along with that, thanks to the Rivals Editions (D1 Edition), fans will get exclusive outfits for Naruto and Sasuke: old friends exchange their get-ups for some fancy fights!
Secondly, Obito will be playable for the first time ever, in the upcoming hit Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution! Kakashi’s long-lost friend will be available on his human form and on his Ten-Tails form when he goes “True Awakening Mode”!
Here’s something that I do appreciate though: The game is getting a demo. Something that we barely see these days, with most titles preferring to opt out of that free taste of what’s to come. The demo for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution won’t just be an assortment of fighters, but it’ll have some online offerings available as well:
Last but not least, for all the fans out there, CyberConnect2 and Bandai Namco Games have prepared a massive surprise: a demo will be available on 2nd of July and it comes with an Online Mode available from 2nd July to 23rd of July!
If you’ve never played a Naruto game before, it’s easy to recommend the current model to newcomers. The core combat is solid and the visuals do look admittedly amazing. But for longtime fans, each new addition is more copy-paste than a university student surfing Wikipedia the night before an essay is due. Still, this one will most likely sell gangbusters when it arrives in September, otherwise Bandai Namco would have canned these games long, long ago.
