So this is picking up from where the last game ended? least we 360'ers get a proper Naruto game.
same game engine as the 1st? i hope they get some lip syncing in there this time.

I am not sure what you meant but the PS3 is also getting a very good Naruto fighting game. let's not trash talk the PS3 please :)

yeah, It is using the same engine but it looks loads better. there is a video in the forum section of the site here:

I'm guessing he meant a Naruto game that actually has an open world to explore and incorporates story arcs, and not JUST a fighting game.

i'm not trash talking the ps3 game, infact it may be the game to make me get a ps3, i just wish they had put that game engine to more work and done whta the 360 devs have done and do a proper rpg.

Sorry if the expression of trash talk was too strong, I didnt mean to be an a** :D

To be honest, the first naruto game on the 360 wasnt exactly a proper RPG, it was very basic at its core and quite repetitive, might I add (I quite enjoyed it nonetheless).

Now, the PS3 game is a full fledged fighter. Fighting in the first Naruto 360 game wasn't exactly its strongest point, it was more like a button masher and in fact its weakest aspect.

It's nice to see that the two Naruto games on the two different platforms are actually different: One is an action advetnure with some RPG elements and the other is a full fledged fighter - I dont think Naruto fans will complain about that :D

The PS3 game isn't only a fighting game either. I wish gamers would actually try to inform themselves.

Hope this is out by the end of the year. LOVED the original. Easily the best game based on an anime series yet. Hope they improve the character rooster though as that was the original game's real flaw.

Lets hope they have more than that one blank stare they had in the first game

Awesome! The first one was better than assasins creed from fun aspect. Technically and visually AC beats it of course. Can't wait for this and many more to come!!!

Cool, hope the graphics become as good as the PS3 one though. Liked the first but got kinda annoying having to fight bosses like tree times... the adventure aspect was fun though.

    Sdarts The only bad thing is that now I'm dying to play Crash Bandicoot. I didn't notice the sounds the first time, but from the second onwards they hit me so hard with nostalgia. Those are great games. (15 Hours ago)
