Well Itachi vs Naruto is chapter 548 and Madara comes at 558 so it needs a rate of 2 chaps per episode for him to make it before March 8th
Oh and if you notice in Yagura's moveset he's using a move that makes its debut in chapter 564.. http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Water_R...rror_Technique ...
Yea if thats the case then probably they will reveal Madara a weak or so before the game comes out
it will really sucks is madara isn't in the game, if madara make it to Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, i hope first hokage got diferent techniques than the past games, this way we can have a great battle, hashirama vs madara..
There was that icon on the website of Naruto in Biju Mode, so if that's included, all three of these are pretty safe bets as they occur within a few chapters of each other, and take place almost simultaneously in the timeline:
Naruto (Biju Mode) versus the Jinchuriki
Madara versus the Gokage
Sasuke (EMS) versus Itachi
CC2 are somewhat restricted by the anime, but they take a lot of inspiration from the Manga. They just have to respect the Anime team and the progress of the TV series so as not to spoil what's going on too much. If it was up to CC2 we'd probably have the game finishing at Obitos reveal and the revival of Juubi. If it doesn't anyway!
This is one of the old interviews I could find that made people think the story will go further than the anime:
Jason Enos, senior global brand manager at Namco Bandai explained that the latest iteration of the anime franchise is meant to appeal more to fans of the original manga series. "One of the focuses of this game for developer CyberConnect2 is to bring the perfect balance of the manga and the anime," he explained. Fans of the franchise will probably agree with Enos' assessment that "the anime is more lighthearted while the manga delves a little deeper and gets a little more serious." To that point, he promises that "one of the goals this time around is to make sure manga fans feel more satisfied" by offering both "the cinematic and visual aspect of the anime" and also "the beautiful story development of the manga."
And no. They would never go that far into the manga, because they'd lose a lot of money when they want to make a new game. Because after the reveal of Obito, there's no new jutsus or etc. only the 10 tails. So the last game will be when the series ends.
Oh I guess you haven't heard of Generations then...
The story will follow the anime but it's clear they work from the manga as half this stuff won't be appearing until weeks after the release.
