Players around the world are enjoying the Naruto Storm Revolution demo, which features an online mode, offline mode, and four new playable characters in Kurama Link Naruto Uzumaki, Mecha Naruto, an updated Kakashi Hatake, and War Arc Sasuke Uchiha. Of course, those aren’t the only characters we’ve seen in the past several months since hearing about the game’s development. There have been a few iterations of a playable demo at events around the world which Bandai Namco has showcased. Below are the 14 characters we’ve seen in the various demos and their partial movesets.
The first group of videos is in HD and is from the demo available on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Marketplace. It shows Kurama Link Naruto, Mecha Naruto, Kakashi, and Sasuke showing off their near complete moveset. The only thing we actually noticed missing were the ultimate jutsu for three of these characters, since the demo did not let players execute them for Kurama Link Naruto, Kakashi, or Sasuke.
However, the data for the ultimate jutsu were on the demo so KG971, a skilled member in the Naruto Storm Community, was able to make some modifications within the code to share with us so we could watch and enjoy!
The next batch of characters were playable at the 2014 Japan Expo, which just took place this past weekend. These are all making their debut in the Storm series as playable characters in free battle for the first time. In order of appearance are Kushina Uzumaki, Obito Uchiha, Shisui Uchiha, Iruka Umino, and Konohamaru Sarutobi.
At the 2014 Wondercon event, Bandai Namco brought a demo with the four Edo Kage as playable characters. They themselves actually released partial movesets for the Third Raikage, Second Mizukage, Second Tsuchikage, and Fourth Kazekage in HD!
And last but not least is Sakura Haruno’s partial moveset from the 2014 Paris Manga & Sci-Fi Show, which took place in February of this year. This may have actually changed, as you can see the character icon and status bar display is a bit different from all the other characters.
