Naruto Storm Revolution: All Strike Backs and Combo Support

Ultimate jutsu and awakening are the two most talked about types in Naruto Storm Revolution and rightfully so. The ultimate jutsu type is able to execute glamorous, cutscene complimented jutsu, while awakening types are able to ascend up into flashy beings of power. The third type of character, the Drive Type, in Naruto Storm Revolution doesn’t have the glamour or flash of the other two, but it still comes equipped with its own unique moves that pack their own punch when used the right way.

First off there are the strike backs. These are moves performed by support characters that execute when the playable character launches an attack that sends their opponent flying. For example, if Minato launches a Rasengan or if Kushina throws a power-packed punch, the opponents will be knocked backwards in such a manner that triggers the support character to jump in and strike. It’s worth noting a player has to be in the Drive Type’s offensive or auto modes in order for this to work. The video below shows all characters strike backs.

Secondly, there are combo support actions. Support characters once again aide the playable character in attacks. This time, as the playable character is performing a combo, the support character is attacking right alongside them! Take a look at all of the characters performing drive type actions in the video below. Might Guy nunchuck action included!
