In Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, the ninja battle was a worldwide affair. For example, a player in North America could battle online with an opponent in European or Asia. There wasn’t any choice, however, as to what region players could match up against. Well, no more, at least if you don’t want to!
In Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations you can still fight against opponents worldwide, but you can select opponents from a region of your choice! The news comes from the good people over at CC2 themselves. That means if you are from North America, for example, then you can limit your battles to opponents only in North America!
Why is this good? Well, some of you may have experienced lag or slow battles. For example, if you press the attack button, it would take 2-3 seconds for your character to respond. In a fighting game, especially, the response needs to be instant! The choice to battle with somebody in your own region should, in theory, help increase the chance of a smooth online battle so when you press the attack button, your character attacks in that exact moment.
