Naruto PS3 trailer

Naruto PS3 trailer

Namco-Bandai finally released the first trailer of their upcoming PS3 exclusive Naruto game, and it looks really good. There really is a big difference in animation quality, not even mentioning facial expressions, with Ubisoft's game.

To me I can't tell the difference between this video and the 360 videos, except that Naruto's face looks more 'anime' and less 'Western anime imitation'.

graphics looks slightly better, but is this just a fighting game?

If so I hope theyve greatly added to the formula. The previous ps2 games were quite fun, but also quite shallow

wow there's a big difference....
the graphics look way more anime real!
and the movement is way more smoother!

You people must be smokin' WAY too much crack.
Edit some scenes... and this game would be in doubt about the Ubi one.

No, Namco-Bandai seems to have done a much better job than Ubisoft. They've taken greater care to capture the anime style with their version.

Add this with their art direction of Tales of Vesperia and they've got a couple of potential winners going for them.

Well lets hope they execute it well because Namco, Bandai, and NamcoBandai are not the cream of the crop with their games.

Is this actually a conversion of the Xbox360 Naruto game? If so then I have to concede that the PS3 has won this one, at least on graphics. :( Although I think it's more the power of the Japanese developers than the power of the Playstation. :D (Not that Ubisoft are bad, in fact they're generally pretty amazing!) Since Ubisoft doesn't have the rights to bring out the Xbox360 version in Japan do you think there's any slight chance that Namco might port this to the Xbox360 there? If so then I might wait for that rather than buying the Ubisoft version. (Unless this is actually a different game to Ubisoft's.)

If it's a straight fighting game then of course it will look better :P
Commented on 2007-12-25 15:09:50
Imo, looks way better than the ubisoft naruto.

It is a straight fighting game, whereas the Xbox 360 Naruto is an action adventure role playing game.

Oh, OK. Then it's a little unfair to compare the graphics as the Ubisoft game obviously has a lot more going on. This still looks great though. :)

Art direction is much better by CC
Commented on 2007-12-25 16:03:15
art directioin looks better and the fighting scene (if they are in real time) look more dynamic, diverse
Commented on 2007-12-25 16:36:36
Uhh, sorry if I didn't know it was a diffrent game I'd say it's the Naruto for the Xbox 360... O.o
Commented on 2007-12-25 16:53:48
Looks about the same to me, the art is more like the anime though, but the trailer is so low res its hard to tell.
Commented on 2007-12-25 17:35:26
Fantastic animation but naruto games and anime games in general have a pretty shitty track record and mostly appeal to hardcore anime fans that buy the game regardless of its quality.
Commented on 2007-12-25 17:40:06
Why can't they make a dbz game like this :(

Separate games. It's a straight up fighter most likely, with a RPG(story) mode similar to what we saw in Ubisoft's game. Well, judging by their past Naruto games on the PS2 that is. Hopefully they make use of the Shippuden arc(they already have with the PS2 games), seeing how they aren't limited by licensing issues like Ubisoft.

that kind of gives you an idea(one of their games on the PS2).

This game will never make it over here anyway, Viz Video has all rights over naruto in the U.S and UBI Soft holds the license for the game and are apparently in bed with MS. I wonder how well naruto sold by the way I don't really remember it being in the NPD stats. I need played the adventure portion of it just fought online.

?

their previous games outside of the Shippuden series have already been released in America. The games just have to fall in line with the US dub, which is why we get the delay. No idea what you're talking about in your first sentence.

this looks way,way better than the 360 version. certainly looks a lot more like the anime.

please don't think i'm a ps3 fanboi, i only have the 360 and really enjoy the naruto360 game :D

The trailer is sick. Hopefully it will be a free roam game rather than a fighting game. I think CC2 is smart enough to realize free roam would be best for the PLAYSTATION 3.
Commented on 2007-12-25 19:20:35
Amazing what conclusions people can draw from a postage-stamp sized trailer :D Game looks good no doubt but we'll have to wait for some actual gameplay (as in some homeboy playing it). Good luck to namco bandai then.

Surely anything Ubisoft has ever made can be topped rather easily, its not a feat in itself.
