Namco Bandai Games Japan has released 2 screenshots from the Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generation tournament mode, one to represent each type of tournament – Battle Tournament and Challenge Tournament.
Battle Tournament can be played online and offline. Online, 8 players can get together to freely duel it out in a tournament style scenario. Offline, players can compete with friends locally or take the battle to computer-controlled opponents..
Challenge Tournament, which is an offline only campaign, is dedicated to a player fighting against computer opponents only. There are different difficulty ranks and in order to progress the the next rank, a player must first win the current rank tournament. In otherwords, in order to graduate to a Chunin-level tournament, first the Genin tournament has to be cleared.
