J-Stars Victory VS – Gameplay #10 – Details

Posted on September 25, 2013

Yosh! Another gameplay video has appeared but this time a lot of the gameplay is explained in detail! You also get to see Kurama Mode Naruto and Ichigo’s Mugetsu briefly in action.

Here are a couple of things we learned after watching the video:

  • This game may be difficult to port to the West because of the licenses that would have to be involved (especially for the more obscure anime/manga characters in the game that don’t have a license in the west)
  • You can choose to either play the CPU or play 2 players
  • R3 is Victory Burst
  • Practically everything in the map is destructible
  • Pressing Circle does a special attack
  • The game has a combo list (so it isn’t much of a button masher)
  • Transformations and Ougis interrupts the battle with a cutscene
  • Kurama Mode Naruto is playable but only for a very short period of time
