it was pretty obvious to me when his new power included all of those ridukou related markings , even when he first trapped karuma's chaakra
the kyuubi says "what rikudou??!!" to imply that naruto has the power of the sage of six paths
that seal that was on the "frog scroll" or the key to the seal rather, is far too connected to rikudou to be an accident
Well that's what happens when you don't plan properly your manga... Naruto got tangled in that Senju / Uchiha thingie the moment the Uzumaki were said to be related to the Senju, so from that moment, Kishi had to make all his powers up Rikudou related.
Naruto gets a new Rasengan ? it's Rikudou related (bijuu dama) Naruto controls Kyuubi exactly like Bee does (waterfall training) : he looks like Rikudou. (of course, since technically, it's your average bijuu V2 form and not a Rikudou form, NO ONE IN THE MANGA WILL WONDER WHY IT'S LOOKING LIKE RIKUDOU and not your average V2 form).
It doesn't mean anything. Minato has no relation whatsoever with Rikudou. (but Kushina did and passed down her seals to Minato)
I am not even sure Kishi even knows what the scroll do. Naruto didn't even bother with it when he trained ... Instead, the purpose of the training was to learn YET ANOTHER Rasengan (oh Kishi) ... Naruto's scroll will probably be used against Sasuke's and cause both of them to be completely useless, which is why Naruto never gave a fuck about it and Sasuke got his in such ridiculous circumstances. They are both completely irrelevant. All those years of speculation were wasted.
To remain on topic, the story is very straightforward.
Both Naruto and Sasuke have the potential to become the new sage. They are supposed to be both face of the same coin and Kishi will always find asspuls to make them even (even potentialwise) until the end. At the end of their fight, they will settle with Naruto as the winner (but it's unlikely the fight will end with a decisive winner) and Sasuke will step down and lose his drive, which will prevent him from ever becoming a SOT6P.

The only way Naruto's the next Rikudou Sennin is his ideals and personality. I think the Kyuubi even confirms this after the flashback with "it's been a long time, old man" or something. While Naruto may have tons of power, it's not what makes him the next Rikudou Sennin.
I could see Naruto's ideals and personality making him the first part of Rikudou Sennin, like the younger son, and Sasuke's power making him the second part of Rikudou Sennin, like the older son.
This page says it all http://www.mangahere.com/manga/naruto/v53/c499/14.html
Not really, as Tobi said Rikudou Sennin created the first ever jinchuuriki seal, which may have been passed down to Uzumaki. Kushina would have had that seal on her, which Minato would learn about so he can seal if necessary or keep the seal from breaking and freeing Kyuubi from Kushina. Minato could have just used Rikudou Sennin's seal on Naruto, which probably wasn't complete until Naruto did something.
And it's been said that Rikudou Sennin's chakra has somethin to do with Naruto's bijuu mode chakra giving him the appearance of Rikudou Sennin.
Sasuke can be the power of the Rikudou Sennin's eyes and chakra, while Naruto can be Rikudou Sennin's body and ideals. No dobut Naruto's extremely powerful as a jinchuuriki, but it's not necessarily his own power while RS had his own power before fightin the Juubi.
They pretended not to notice the Kyuubi transformation was not normal looking.
Also, the bijuu (who have met the SOT6P) also fail to comment/notice.
The original sage wasn't a ninja.
Ninjutsu is only the militarization of whatever he was doing / preaching. That's why Naruto isn't given more techniques and the Rasengan was turned into a jinchuuriki imitation thingie.
The problem is that Naruto has nothing else. He can only use chakra as a tool for war.
Remember that Kushina told Naruto to find a woman like her (ie a woman who would support him like she supported Minato's career with all her seals that made him strong and famous) and that either Sakura (healer) and Hinata (well, not sure, but the Hyuuga have a YinYang thing going on that would work fine on Naruto) could really help Naruto if he ever walked that path.
But this would require Kishi making canon Naruto's final pairing and adding a timeskip. And showing creativity in the way Naruto will fight his last fights.
