Naruto: Rise of a Ninja Q&A session

Naruto: Rise of a Ninja Q&A session

We asked on the forum for questions to upcoming interviews done by the XCN, and first out is Naruto: Rise of a Ninja. Most of the questions actually got picked for the interview done by them, so inside you'll find Sebastien Puel's thoughts about characters, DLC, not doing CO-OP, upcoming Naruto games and much more.

They should have asked them if a japanese track will be on the disk. I won't play it in english. If it is not gonna have my language track, there's none better than the original one.

They did kind of.

Are you fully localizing it (text and speech) into all European languages?
No, we decided to fully localize the text. But the speech will be for the moment in English and French.
If there was a Japanese option im sure he would have said.

At this point the game is almost finished. so I'm worried for the Japanese voices.

They never say nothing about Jap voices...

the game has been recieving some 'ok' reviews from mags

I think they said the voices would be in japanese as well..That was in an older interview though! If they don`t implement jap voices I`m not gonna buy it..

I'll just have it running on french if they don't have jap. Might as well brush up on my french.

Good enough excuse to get a 3rd language under my belt.

bleh if there is no japanese voices, then this is a no buy here also :/
The english voice overs just dont have the same feeling to them.

apparently the OXM review said they would add JPN voices later as DLC. I haven't seen the mag myself, so I don't know if this is really true or not.
Commented on 2007-10-27 03:35:16
after reading this im seriously starting to doubt if i should get this
Commented on 2007-10-27 07:45:42
Im now worried. They said originally they would have japanese, but if they dont have Japaneses voices in the game Im taking off my preoder and not picking this up. I HATE the english voice actors. Mainly Naruto's VA. An old lady with an annoying catch phrase? No I don't watch the Eng ver because of that, I wont pay to be annoyed too. Need JPN voices confirmed!
Commented on 2007-10-27 08:24:09
the game sounds great, but the american voices are terrible. they really are. go watch episode 101 in english, then compare it to the japanese original. there is no comparison.
i'm really thinking if it's worth getting this now, the bad voice acting will ruin it, it's a story based game and to enjoy it you need good voice acting.
the japanese voices cannot be added as dlc, it would be a huge download.
Commented on 2007-10-27 10:07:42
I hope this game will be a total flop. I hate this naruto stuff so much. Ninjas ??!! Little Kids in silly outifts. Just ridiculous.
As an example: Basilisk, thats a manga with a good ninja atmosphere.

Get Real!

I said from the very beginning that they wouldn't be able to fit Japanese voices..no one wants to admit the gravity of what this implies..fine with me, i won't disturb the denial.

well said..i'm glad you got to him before i did..

it's true it won't fit dual audio, but I remeber the first demo video being in japanese audio.
also I believe they said it would have Jap audio and Now it doesn't

also The story is great but if theire not gonna make more arcs available on DLC or whatsoever this game pretty much sucks..cause always the main story of the anime lasts 3 hours and the side missions (ramen delivery, defending stuf etc) takes you 20 hours..
thats not why i'm buying this game for.

There are lot's of different games I still want, but I save my money for this game...now I'm doubting
Commented on 2007-10-27 13:17:35
I want this game soo bad, i admit jap voices are nice, and they did say they would have them but alot of you saying it wont?

but either way, im still buying this game, its naruto, its a fighting game so its mine ^^"
Commented on 2007-10-27 16:00:57
Without japanese voices, I'dont want it!
Commented on 2007-10-27 18:50:40
yeah well, he said "for the moment".. so japanese voices arent completely out of question
Commented on 2007-10-27 23:23:21
First of all, nice Q&A session.
As for the game itself, well its easily going to beat the Japanese Naruto games with the GC games being the only half decent one's. Great for 360 that it's exclusive and im looking forward to future sequels.
As for the audio, for the long time Naruto fan, Japanese voices are very important. It's what they started with and its the definitive version.
If its down to DVD size limitations then why bother including a French dub instead of the vastly more important Japanese dub? I understand Ubisoft are a French company but alot of long term Naruto fans will base their purchase on the inclusion of the Japanese dub, something that everyone can enjoy due to it being the original version.
I don't mind the English dub but its far from the stanadrd of the Japanese version of will lessen my enjoyment of the game. None the less I will still buy the game and hope that if the Japanese language is later released as DLC, Ubisoft won't have the cheek to charge for it...

umm, dont like fighting. combat should be fast and unpredictable for other player , not doing combinations that all can see and take few sec to do ... etc.
