New Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution Screens: Akatsuki Origins

#1
For the first time ever, the origin of the most merciless band ever is depicted!

Thanks to NARUTO SHIPPUDEN ULTIMATE NINJA STORM REVOLUTION, NARUTO SHIPPUDEN fans will have all the details about Akatsuki’s background! All aspiring ninjas are asking themselves tons of questions for years: how was Akatsuki, the biggest threat in the Ninja universe, brought to life? How did Pain and Konan expand their crew?

This new animation will be woven into gameplay, allowing players to take part in the origins of the Akatsuki. Various members of the infamous gang such as Sasori, Kakuzu, and others, will have new outfits designed by series creator Masashi Kishimoto.
That last picture looks so badass. I'm praying for a PC release

wtf is wrong with his arm?
It's fake.

Either way, this game is still single player only, right? Well, the way the other storm games have been, that's probably for the best. Still though, I'll probably sit this one out and wait for the final Storm game that should be out near the Naruto finale.

Did the PC version do terribly, or the timeframe between releases is just too short? considering how late its predecessor came to PC.
Neither. The PC version was more of an experiment to see how a release would do. Last I heard, it was still doing well. But CC2 has to keep pumping these games out if they want to keep the licence, which is why the older games never get fixed. There's a very old guard capcom feel to how CC2 is handling their properties lately.

That explains why the Storm series is now a yearly series. I still think it's a bit too early for Revolution.

Considering this game seems to be little more than a single player expansion pack, It was probably something that originally was going to be DLC, but spun out of control/allows for the manga to get another 10 months under it's belt before they have to make up another terrible ending.

But yeah, there's been a storm game every year for the past 5 or so years.

Guessing were gonna get the backstory on when
Orochimaru Left the Akatsuki.
Seems Good, might get this.
yeah this is probably the part I'm most excited about. We barely know anything about that incident.

If there are three separate campaigns for this game (canon storyline, Mecha Naruto, and the Akatsuki Origins), I will definitely get this.

Believe so. Super bummed that the 4 Character Arena mode is single player only.

Whyyyyyyyyy

It's gonna be sooo weird seeing Orochimaru in an Akatsuki cloak.
What about Orochimaru...With a wig?

Goddammit. *pre-orders Naruto*

I was going to wait till the next game for the end of the war but if this is a long side campaign and not just "episodes" like in previous games I am in. I am all in.

Fucking love the akatsuki.

I hope they have stuff like Kakuzu vs 1st hokage or Kakuzu & Hidan vs 2 tails jinchuriki as well as a bunch of new stuff.

Uh, yeah, you have. You've seen Deidara, Kisame and Itachi too, at least.
Oh, yeah, I've seen those too

Wait until you meet Pain.
I rekindled with this series after I stop years ago, skipping the fillers too since I don't have time for that, I am currently at the beginning of season 4 and I am quite liking where this is going, it looks like shit is about to go down, a bunch Ninjas were dispatched to hunt down those 2 Akatsuki guys, the religious one cracks me up.

you're in for quite a ride
Oh yeah, it looks like it.

Don't watch/read/follow Naruto but I fully admit these games from CC2 are downright amazing to see. Just downloaded 3 I guess it is on PC and was pretty blown away again after playing the first for a few hours back around PS3 launch.

Have no interest in the franchise as a whole but I will probably check this out as well just because each time I play one I have a list of other series I wish they would work their magic on.

People say Rock Lee is a bad show. Those people don't have souls.
Preach.

CC2 is pretty damn great. They handle some moments better than the manga/anime(Edo Tensei Haku/Zabuza, for one).
