According to Yahoo! Japan via Namco Bandai the focus of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations is three fold. We at Anime Games Online are extremely excited for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations, but we won’t speculate on this one! We’re simply providing you the facts as we understand it from Yahoo’s report.
The first focus of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations is to expand the character roster to a size never before seen in a Naruto game. This includes having new, never before seen characters in the Storm series, but also upgrading existing characters to keep the experience fresh and competitive.
The second is online. There is the traditional ranked battle similar to Storm 2, but also a tournament battle that a player can create and host multiple players. Tournament battle can be played both offline and online. Online will have additional new elements added to it, which will be revealed at a later time.
Lastly, the story mode of the game will be featured from the perspective of different characters and will be told through original animation from Studio Pierrot. Yahoo! Japan mentions Namco Bandai’s next update will talk in more detail about this.
Focus one (characters) and three (story mode) have been talked about before, while focus two (online) is something new. Well, we know there were going to be enhancements to online, but “tournament battle” sounds very interesting! We hope to have more information on this as soon as it breaks!
