First post! :)

Yeah, I'm actually, to my own surprise, looking forward to this game. No loading, jutsu with the analog stick, the minigames, combat, quite, quite good graphics... there's quite a lot of stuff in this one. Especially for an anime game.

Can't wait for the presentation video...

Really? :) this (http://images.xboxyde.com/gallery/public/5502/1261_0018.jpg) doesn't look impressive to you? When you take the context into account.

To my understanding it handles the first 80 episodes.

As always. I did like the jutsu thing though and the possibilities that it could have. Like the water walk, etc. I wonder just how much of those things are functional in combat and in general gameplay.

Shorter, soundless HD version of the presentation (http://www.xboxyde.com/news_4391_en.html). All that space should be explorable, I think that's pretty great work right there.

man i just hate that song "Rise" man when i watch it on Jetix it gets on my nerwes,and if Naruto will say all the time "believe it" then i aint buying a X360 and that game.And his still a kid there so it suck even more,cause Shippuden already started.

Not sure if many people are aware of Ubisoft's Naruto game. It's an adventure game this time instead of like many of the previous ones being fighting games. The game looks pretty amazing, too bad it's based on before the time skip, but since it's focused on the american market it's to be expected.

Pre timeskip Naruto with timeskip Konohamaru? Are u sure abt that? I watched the video and that was pre timeskip konohamaru. Unless u are talking abt a different video. Where exactly did u see this?

The art style looks alot like the anime nothing like the render they had put up before. I guess that was just a sketch a nothing more.

I think the game looks fun. Well the more chracaters they add the more fun and interesting it will be. Too bad I wont be able to play it. THey should have made it for the PS2.

I hope it elaborates into Shippuuden-Naruto, like a two-sided game, starting from the start, and going all the way to the current in the manga. _That_ would be cool!

But the biggest issue is this; does it have Japanese or English speach, and if you have to choose if you want to but the American version, or the Japanese version, please let there be a choice for English subtitles in the Japanese version.
I hate English speach for Naruto, he just says "Believe it!" all the time! And I don't understand Japanese good enough to play story-mode without English subtitles.

So the best possible thing they could do would be making it optional, like in the Options-menu, choose what subtitles and audio you want.
That would be cool! =)
I used ages to get the 4th in the newest Naruto-game for Ps2, just because I didn't understand my missions :/

Although based on a cult Japanese animation show Naruto for Xbox 360 is being developed in North America by French publisher Ubisoft. However these guys are Naruto maniacs whose dream has been to realise Naruto’s unique ninja lifestyle as a wildly entertaining videogame. Everything included in Rise of a Ninja is approved by Studio Pierrot, creators of the original animation series. Attention to detail extends to the inclusion of the original voice actors from the TV show, recognisable in every language… and that includes Japanese with subtitles for the purists!

So the are adding in the original japanese voice cast with subtitles, awesome. I was worried about having to play this game with the american dubs.

Ubisoft got advices from a group of very big naruto fans, and from the interviews i watched about the game it seems they listened very closely to what the fan said. As for the picture of Konoha (in the first page of the topic) I don't know if it's just an art, but the developpers said that most of (unfortunatly not ALL of) the town would be explorable, the roofs as much as the streets. But you'll have to gain some abilities (like wall walking) to be able to explore more and more of the city.
There has been many demonstration videos made from the same playable version you got, but with different developers playing and explaining the game, and from what i saw (i watched about 5 or 6 different demos) the guys know pretty well what they're talking about, using words like 'jutsus' instead of skills and knowing all the caracter's names and jutsus that are to be seen in the videos. I think this is a clue on how much they were involved in the serie, as i think 'classic' developers would have used "teacher" or "master" to name kakashi or "skill" or "spells" instead of "jutsus" ^^.

The game will cover the real story, ending at the Naruto vs Gaara fight of the chounin exam, and they already planned to make a sequel (i guess that'd be the rescue sasuke arc ^^).

P.S. : As the game's been developed by a french group, i guess we french people got a few more interviews about it, but that's just a guess of course :amuse

Lion
August 06, 2007, 06:14 AM
The art director's supposed to be a genuine Naruto fan. He talked about it in an interview... might have been on gamersyde. He was working on some other Ubi project when he heard that one team was making Naruto. Apparently, he really wanted to be a part of that.

Sounds good to me. I've never ever played an anime based game before, and never did I believe I was going to, but this one, I want. :)

PREACH ON BROTHA! As for the japanese voices.. oh.. that link, yeah.. umm. apparently Ubisoft hasn't confirmed (yes I know that links says, but it has been reported that source was not correct).. But hopefully they do have the japanese voices. The game looks very impressive and I'm a big Naruto fan, so I'm defintely picking it up, looks to be great.

As for it going into Shipudden? Very much doubted. The manga pace over here in U.S. is slow (they are at volume 18 I think) and it will probably take a year or so before Shipudden.

the game will have jap dub too and it will ends with the battle between naruto and gaara
online vs mode is included


Update
An Italian site has tested a pre-build version
They say that only english dub was included (and thay say the dub sucks)

For what i know the USA edition will have english and japanese dub
I hope it will be the same for Europeans...

October 20, 2007, 12:50 PM
Ah yes, it will have japanese dubs, but apparently by DLC (if you don't have a 360 or don't know what means, downloadable content, which can either be free, or price).. I'm guessing they will have DLC for characters, because there are few characters missing in the game that arent' included.

If memory serves correctly, this is going to be released on the 23rd. I heard some other hearings that it would pushed back til the 30th.

Gameplay preview
Here are three homemade videos of Naruto: Rise of a Ninja since we just received the game (well, a really early version though). We can discover the beginning of Ubi Soft's new game where Naruto achieves his first mission and his first fight. The second video will show a bunch of other missions (like an express ramen delivery) while the last video will show the rooftops of the city for some platforming. So keep in mind this version is far from complete and contains a lot of sound and layout bugs.

from my point of view the bandai series of naruto games is the worst
this is my personal chart:

1: Naruto rise of a ninja by Ubisoft [360] (The seal system is simply amazing)
2: Naruto GNT by Takara Tomy [GC/Wii] (Played the 2,3,4)
3: Naruto Naruttimate series by Bandai [PS2] (Played 1 and accel)

Uhm depending on what standpoint? If you want a good adventure game, RoaN might be the best game. If you want a good fighting game, GNT/NH are FAR!!! superior to RoaN. RoaN's fighting system is just one thing, total crap. And especially the jutsu/seal system makes the whole fighting stuff a epic fail. In the adventure mode it makes pretty sense. In the fighting part its just one of the worst things I have seen in a long time.

Namikaze Minatosan
November 24, 2007, 05:59 AM
I think that the seals system is perfect and give a "better feeling" for the special moves
For the fighting system, before NRON the best fighting system was GNT
The fight system of NRON is similar to GNT, except for the seal system and from my point of view this is a good add... (and there is the online too)
The fighting system of NH is simply "smashing buttons style"

destinator
November 24, 2007, 07:54 AM
The fighting system of NH is simply "smashing buttons style"

Sorry but then you know nothing about NH =/ ... stupid button smashing wont bring you further when you play against someone that knows something about the game.

The seal system is good? I dont know anyone can mean this serious. You dont even need to land a special, knock someone down and you have a SECURE lvl1-2 special, thats just the lamest thing I've seen in a long time.

Online? Well to be true, the online mode sucks. 100 million rock lees, millions of stupid kids that either leave before fight ends or just give a negative rep because you owned them...

Also if it comes to "features", the game doesnt even have a training mode... :eyeroll :darn

AkatsukiNoTobi
November 26, 2007, 03:09 AM
There are some small things in the game that people are finding out, mostly in combat. For example, if you're Kakashi and you're fighting Zabuza, activate the Sharingan, and then (after your chakra refills) pull off the "seals" required for the Water Dragon Jutsu. Also, something I just found out (I confirmed it for someone), is that if you're Haku, hold L+R and you only have to use the left stick for "seals" in order to perform jutsu.

So there're small things, but still...nothing that's making it OMG so far. Akatsuki'd help with that *shifty eyes*

Ehm no not really, not as much as in RoaN ;).

Opinions are perfect with me, but you can ask everyone who is playing the GNT/NH games for years now and he will easily tell you that RoaNs fighting system fails.

sharinganLS
November 28, 2007, 07:29 AM
Yup Des is right. U cant even compare a fighting game like NH/GNT to RoaN. RoaN is a decent game but it fails in its fighting system. There isnt much skill required to play that game. Even my 10 year old cousin has it and plays it with ease. Trust me when u play NH seriously against a really gud opponent skill really matters. The only thing that I like abt RoaN is the graphics, other then that its just a childs play.

Marq
November 28, 2007, 07:59 PM
Roan is great for adventure, the fighting is shoddy, but GNT/NH is great in terms of fighting. I prefer NH more, seeing as I've been playing that more than GNT though. Not to mention the feature I hate the most is rage mode or whatever it's called in Roan. I could understand Naruto, Sasuke, Lee having this mode story wise (naruto=kyubbi, sasuke= curse seal lee= the gates), but friggin chunnins? Okay that wasn't really necessary.

Namikaze Minatosan, Dude sorry but you cant compare N Accel 1 to RoaN. Accel is 100% fun, ok Roan has better grafics and alot better on RPG because the 360 can handle it, but the Accel tough it's on the Ps2, still alot i mean alot of fun. And some pretty good grafics.

Also you cant compare 40+ players to 11.
