The First 10 Minutes: Naruto 360

The First 10 Minutes: Naruto 360

Naruto: Rise of a Ninja will be released today in the US, and on Friday in Europe, and this time we managed to get some videos out before the actual release. Let's hope this will be more often the case! Anyway, for a half linear and half sandbox game like Naruto nothing less than 5 videos will be necessary to show how everything works, but I'm sure the numerous fans of the series won't mind!
Update: All five videos are now online.



The first 10 minutes: Part 1
The first 10 minutes: Part 2
The first 10 minutes: Part 3
The first 10 minutes: Part 4
The first 10 minutes: Part 5

woah. ehh..that looked awesome. I really liked the battle, it looked awesome and sounds equally as good, too bad there's way too many good games coming before the end of the year as it is, can't even get all them but If I'd have the money for this I'd happily pay :)

Surprisingly good.

Gameplay is good! But the voice acting killed the game's overall aspect.

There were supposed to be japanese voice-overs as an option right? Does anyone know if that made it in to the final game?

Confirmed as a "Downlodable Content" planned shortly after the release.
You should just do a Strait Side-quest Play, and do the Main Stuff only, or do it again when the Jap VA arrives.

WTF? When naruto casts kagebunshin the map changes!! It's like a fighting game but with a little story... Didn't like it at all. I thought it was going to be different.

do you have any sources? I've never heard of this until now.

EDIT: nevermind, I just found one. That's fucking awesome!

Hopefully there will be an in-game option to include japanese voice overs.

Most developers are realising that us brits and many others prefer the original dialogue and for a game of this calibur, they`d be stupid not to include it.

I have to say that after watching this short film, I`m now drooling at the prospect of playing this very soon.

More than likely picking it up today. I wandered whether I would due to the bad Eng voices, but if anything you can always have a few drinks before playing and laugh your head off at the butchering of anything that was Japanese. Like "Rayman" instead of Ramen ect. Though most of the time your cringing as anyone speaks while sheading girlly tears for them to stop speaking! Hoping for that patch today. And that they have more than one or two dl characters. Like in the 30 range. 8-13 characters for such a series doesnt cut it.

GY guys, I love how you always state "impressions later' and never actually write them. :)

I now have the game but having difficulty connecting to ubi servers for the excusive content. Get back to you on if the J voices are there or not.

The Euroland version has the promise of JAP VA on the Launch date.

That would be really sad if that game launched without the Japanese voices... The English ones are so awful.

as long as they are added later, but to the fans, good or bad, they just want the voice acting to match the anime, and it does do that it seems

Holy cr@p, I don't follow this anime (except for loads of others), I do know that the fights (when there are :P - I hear there're only fillers)are beautifully animated. And this looks very powerful, it sounds good too except for the voices, but there'll come Japanese voices as Downloadable Contant (after 2 months sigh)

Thanks blim.

Pretty cool, sadly I don't like Naruto. Also, terrible dub XD. I think I'd rather play the game with the original Japanese voice overs with some English subs. Gahhh terrible. Naruto gives me a headache. XD

Can you be other characters in the game or are you stuck playing as Naruto?

Yes, you are stuck being Naruto for the story portion of the game. Obviously, you can be whom ever you want in vs.

Depends many of the lessor common characters aren't voiced by the same people who do the US anime.

Jiraiya being one of them.

Brings up another question that I'm sure is answered somewhere, but oh well. Online vs. mode? XD
