Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 is Sex in Motion

Believe it!

  
   
Check out this awesome trailer from Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, the predecessor to the original Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm for the Playstation 3. But things have changed, now with this game you can get it for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 (eff yeah!). I don’t know for sure how far this game will go, but it looks like it will tell the story of Shippuden up to, what appears to be, near current. I not much into Naruto anymore, but this is actually looking kind of sexy. What do you think?

I know the UNS on PS3 looked amazing (a friend has it), but ultimately it felt like a boring enough but really pretty fighter.  
 I'm not interested in the licence so that might be it.

LOL PS3 lost another exclusive. Cmon Sony stop giving away your exclusives!

Wait, this game is coming to 360 now?  That's rad!  I played the demo of the first game and it was OK.  Hopefully this one will be better.  The 360 Naruto games were actually pretty good compared to the other games.

Great! This is just what I wanted to see! 
 
The first Ultimate Ninja Storm was basically everything an anime-fighting-game-based-on-a-popular-licence needed to be, It looked delicious, had lots of great fanservice, had lots of characters and was just playable enough for you to enjoy some two on two fighting with a friend. Only really bad thing was that useless sandbox story mode that took forever to get through. 
 
Of course I decided at that point that if they made a second one, and it hadn't progressed to the Shippuden arcs it wouldn't be worth my time. Luckily someone, somewhere made a right choice. 
 
As far as gameplay go I'd settle for "same shit in different costumes". I really don't care if they make any "improvements" to the "fighting system", Just do what you did last time and add "Shippuden" at the end of it. Seriously, I don't even care if you put that sandbox bs in again, I'll still frikkin' play it! 
 
My only worry is that I haven't gone that far into shippuden yet, since I stopped watching the anime and instead just waited for the manga to come out IMC. 
So I might have to hold out on it just for the sake of spoilers.

Ugh, the first Ultimate Ninja Storm was so mashy. I mean it looked great but the actual fighting mechanics were really weak. The Naruto games that Ubisoft made for the Xbox360 are much better. That said the story itself has jumped the shark somewhat for me.

Say what you will about the Naruto anime, but the video games have always been pretty good for games based off of a license.
Helloson Jan. 28, 2010 at 8:28 p.m.

Looks good, I'd buy it if its anything like that. :P

This has a great departure from the previous games. It has a real Street Fighter IV feel, and since it's Naruto, they can go even crazier with the special move animation.

Me and my friend played the hell out of some of the old 2.5d fighters on the ps2. Mostly the third one, I think. They were easy to pick up and pretty fun. I tried Ninja Storm, but I don't feel that the gameplay transitioned to 3d very well.
AgentJon Jan. 28, 2010 at 11:25 p.m.
Too bad they aren't as good of fighters as the 4th one that was on the cube. Too bad that one doesn't look this good.

I CANT WAIT TO MURDER SASUKE!!!!

Can't wait!! Hopefully it's better than Broken Bond!

Great news I loved the Naruto games on the 360, this looks sweet.
Newdeathon Feb. 1, 2010 at 6:35 a.m.
Hopefully it doesn't turn out like Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm.

Oh man, that breaks my heart. I loved Storm. Granted, I didn't play it much, but it was, unlike so many other anime based games... about doing awesome things, not about trying to make a subpar, unbalanced technical fighter. Like, there I could do a chirodi, and that would involve me super speed running across the stage and trying to hit the guy.
 
Similar to my feelings on gundam games (Gundam vs. Gundam) and Final Fantasy Dissida, players "need" to be able to do the cool shit their character can. Not just watch cut scenes of it or quarter-circle+punch yet another skinned fireball. Sure, it could be "too simple," but at least it means that players can do whatever they want, its just up to them to be deciding what to do, at what time.
 
(for further note, I think Smash is brilliant for creating simple, approachable controls that allow players the freedom to do any move in their repitore, and then just allowing the players reaction/instincts effect the outcome of the battle.)
 
@Sigue:
Most people tend to dig the gamecube, four player ones, but I thought the 2.5d ps2 ones were brilliant and fast paced.

@John_Martone: The game itself has stunning visuals and it certainly is fun to watch the characters perform their "Ultimate Jutsus" however personally the game didn't turn out how I expected it to. My main complaint about the game is that the use of the Substitution Jutsu, its quite difficult to use and no matter what timing I have its hard to successfully use it most of the time especially when I am at the end of a seemingly eternal combo. I simply found the game somewhat boring after a while but hey maybe thats just me.
