    sIGH

  • Ha that’s funny, you said Iruka was a fan favorite

    • TheGameTagerZ

      In Japan he is. He never leaves the top 10 favorite Naruto characters.

      When the manga is released/weekly shonen jump is released they come out with Japan polls asking fans who is their favorite character. Iruka is almost always in the top 10 ranking.

      • How is that even possible?

        • TheGameTagerZ

          Fan favorite doesn’t have to mean “Most relevant character in the anime”

          Some people like Anko and she’s appeared very few times in the series for example.

          People in Japan just like Iruka. May not make sense to you because you may not like Iruka but the people of Japan voted for him every time when the manga chapters were releasing.

          • Tayusional

            but all hes ever been shown doing is eating ramen with naruto and acting as his therapist.

            • TheGameTagerZ

              I really hate repeating myself…

              Doesn’t matter what Iruka did or didn’t do. Japan loves Iruka and it has been proven with several polls that were conducted since naruto started and from what has been shown Iruka has always been in top ten.

              It is the same thing as Shisui Uchiha.
              Shisui Uchiha was never seen fighting, and we mostly saw him in the same flashback were he gives Itachi his crow (Danzo taking his eyes was mentioned in the manga, and not seen in a flashback), but he still makes it to be a playable character because he is a fan favorite.

              I know that many fans prefer Shisui over The Sound 4, and you should consider the same thing with the Japanese who prefer Iruka over The Sound 4.

            • Mathew Gibbons

              It’s not about what he does but Iruka as a character and in that respect he’s a big part of Naruto’s life. He’s been his constant mentor to Naruto more than Kakashi and even Jiraiya and the Japanese fans respect that. Personally I’m surprised it’s taken them this long to add him.

    • Bdock3601

      Hes my favorite

  • shaddrag

    We have Kabuto Sage Mode, it’s enough,

    Until a later game.

  • Hagaren

    I’m not even that big a Sound 4 fan and still, I’m kinda disappointed they don’t get added, but Konohamaru does.
    Maybe they’ll add Anko…

  • Emilight

    Even though I didn’t want them anyways I feel sorry for the people who were crying for them

  • Skorm94

    meh never really understood why ppl wanted them to be playable

    • Emilight

      IKR!

    • Tayusional

      how dare you use a gintama icon and insult my favorite naruto character. the sound 4 (well i only care about tayuya) were unique, interesting characters with their own fighting styles. and personally i would love to beat the crap out of karin and sakura with tayuya

      • Skorm94

        true they were good characters and if I could get tayuya instead of karin I wouldn’t hesitate for a second, but I think they aren’t relevant enough now to make a big deal out of it unlike for example the edo kage

        • Tayusional

          we have the edo kage, which im not impressed by the edo raikage considering he was supposed to be like the fastest ninja ever? i thought? with the worlds greatest defense? idk
          relevancy doesnt cancel out creativity and interest. iruka hasnt been relevant since the first episode of the anime, he got replaced by kakashi rather quickly imo.

          yeah, some people would at least like to have tayuya playable.

        • Mathew Gibbons

          Being relevant isn’t as big a deal in a Generations/Revolution style game. While the numbered Storm games only focus on characters in the story mode these inbetween games add characters that were skipped over in past games. Iruka was more relevant in Storm 1, Konohamaru was more relevant in Storm 2 (where he held his own against Pain) and Kushina was more relevant in Storm 3.

          Generations added characters who were new and relevant but it also added characters it skipped over in Storm 1 (Haku and Zabuza) and upgraded some of Storm 1’s support characters (the Hokage). Revolution has less brand new characters to work with (Obito, a second Madara and a possible Jinchuriki Obito are the only new additions from events after Storm 3) but has promised a large roster so focusing on characters from the past is the way to go.

    Well that’s a bummer -_- goddamn it CC2

  • SasukeUchiha

    CC22222222222222222!!!!!!!!!!

    Goddamn CC2 burn Amaterasu

    But please add Kin/Gin and or 7 swordsman of the mist!

  • What am I doing here?

    • TheGameTagerZ

      Huh?

      • I’m usually on SI but you guys update faster.

        • TheGameTagerZ

          Thank you.

        • Mathew Gibbons

          Also no watermarks.

          • TheGameTagerZ

            We don’t own these images so we don’t do that. We leave credit when we translate though to acknowledge the translators work.

            • Mathew Gibbons

              Exactly. Saiyan Island add watermarks to everything they post and while they’re not as distracting as they used to be it’s still claiming ownership over images that aren’t theirs.

              • TheGameTagerZ

                I think that’s the only advice they took from us before we were removed from the site. We told SaiyanIsland either remove the watermarks completely or make them at the very least non intrusive.

                That and actually giving credit (sometimes) and not watermarking over other websites work.

  • DI

    If theyre not gonna be playable it means none of the other support only fharacter are gonna be either fuq cc2 and their laziness they can make a lot of costumes or stupid characters like karin but cant do this -.-

    • Mathew Gibbons

      I wouldn’t say none of them but I can’t imagine it being that many. I can see Shizune and Kurenai becoming playable with the choice to make Konoha supporting characters like Iruka, Konohamaru and Kushina playable. But yeah sadly my hopes for a playable Kurotsuchi and Chojuro aren’t looking so good.

      • DI

        remember that konohamaru and iruka are new chars thats why they where instantly made playable but at the moment the only former support character that has been made playable is darui and just because he was the one that beat ginkaku and kinkaku but kurenai and shizune havent do anything in the war so I really dont think whey would make any of the other supports playable

        • Mathew Gibbons

          I’m thinking in terms of themes, these new characters haven’t been added for their role in the war but their role in Naruto’s life so if any support characters are getting upgraded it’s those with a big supporting role in the series. This isn’t a main game, being important to the current story isn’t as important as it would be for Storm 4.

          And you forget Generations upgraded Storm 1’s support characters with the Hokage being playable and they hadn’t been re-revived yet. Of all games Revolution is the best one to add characters from the past as there aren’t many new characters from after Storm 3 left to add.

          Shizune has been an important support character to Sakura and Tsunade since Tsunade was introduced. Kurenai is Team 8’s teacher and part of Shikamaru’s supporting cast through being the mother of Asuma’s child.

          • DI

            Yes but remember that the release date is near and theres still lots of characters that were or are being part of the war and still are not part of the roster and also theres some characters that they need to update so if they dont delay the release date I dont think they would have to do all that and also make characters like shizune or kurenai playable

            • Mathew Gibbons

              It comes out in September, there’s a few months before the game is released and they have mostly been revealing characters in groups with the exception of Kushina and Shisui who have their own story modes in the game.

              • If you guys look on the normal wikipedia it says 118 PLAYABLE characters, no supporters like normal. It’s possible the PTS characters will not return (Haku, Zabuza etc will most likely, just not like PTS Kiba, Ino etc.) So what if- the current Support only characters are made playable? If I remember correctly there is one more special episode that has yet to be revealed, in the trailer they show Pre-Akatsuki Kisame, what if this story is about the Swordsmen? What if the remaining char’s include the 7 Swordsmen, Pre-Akatsuki Kisame, And *squeels* Chojuro! Being he was a support it would make ever more sense that if supports are playable and if the swordsmen will get a story of something, idk I’m getting confusing now so I’ma end that thought. Anyway, if the remaining story is about the Mist/Bloody Mist/Rin even maybe(showing her death at one point) but mainly on the Swordsmen it could show Kisame’s past, how/why he defected from the Swordsmen to join the Akatsuki and lead up to how Mei became Mizukage and even show how Chojuro inherited Hiramekarei from Mangetsu AND NOT Suigetsu even though Suigetsu is the younger brother. I think it would be intreasting since Mei and the Swordsmen are really the only major characters that we don’t know too much about. Even if the other Swordsmen aren’t playable we could still see it work in, plus, this would leave room for them to include Chojuro V.S. Zetsu and possible make Zetsu a moveset since they’re going into Akatsuki background anyway. Either way, I’m kind of glad we don’t know and I hope we don’t know until the game is ABOUT to be released like a week or 2 before hand or maybe not even until the day of or before. Anyway, I’m really excited also, what do you think could happen? Sure I could be overthinking things about supports but wikipedia clearly states on the other games that they contain X-amount of support only characters and lists them so that’s why I’d assume something fishy is goin’ on 😛
                Please post your thoughts because I’m curious on what y’all think. Even if the sound four aren’t playable it doesn’t mean that the other supports won’t be or that other less important but still important “minor” characters won’t be playable (Omoi and some others) So, yep 😛

          • Let’s be honest here, there should be no thing as Support only characters. Shizune, Kurenai, Sound Four, Chojuro, Kurotsuchi, Cee, and all the other supports COULD EASILY be given movesets, yes they have to make them in the game and blah blah doo dee dah, BUT THAT’S THERE FREAKING JOB, Besides, they already have their Jutsu’s, Chakra Shuriken, Parts of Air combo’s and at least one Ground combo start up done from adding in relay’s and crap so all they have to do is give them Ultimate Jutsu’s which would not be hard AT ALL, EX:Chojuro could have his longsword but make it more dramatic and epic, Shizune could be a serious character but have her Awakening support, Ult. Jutsu and Grab be really cute and silly and have something to do with Tonton, Kurenai is easy a shit since she is a Genjutsu user they can just do some Genjutsu shit, Kurotsuchi since she can use Corrosion style it means she has control of Water, Earth and Fire style so they could make her moveset have some of those in it and her ultimate jutsu be like some quicklime thing and then like either a ninja tool explosion thing or something with her other elements. It’s like, I can create full movesets for each of these characters in 10 minutes and draw up concepts and everything, I’m really, REALLY going to pissed off if the other supports are not playable.(Majorly Chojuro because he’s my favorite character, but we REALLY need more Kunoichi and adding the sound four for Tayuya would have been great as well as Kurenai, Shizune and Kurotsuchi, plus Kurotsuchi is a kage’s granddaughter so why the fuck not?)

            • Mathew Gibbons

              Before the Sound Four were revealed as non playable I thought there was a strong chance of all the support characters becoming playable considering the type of characters that they have been adding.

            • Litleo

              Chojuro should totally be playable since he fought Black Zetsu while protecting the Damiyos. That’s huge!!

  • Enzevil

    Sound 4 comfirmed NOT playable in Storm Revolution. Maybe if we ask for it with a petition they can change their minds!!

    Sign this and share it with everyone! Let’s show them how much we want them playable!
    www(dot)change(dot)org/petitions/cyberconnect2-narutovideogames-namco-bandai-games-make-sound-4-playable-in-naruto-storm-revolution

    • Mathew Gibbons

      I think it’s too late to change the game now. Also petitions like these never work. The better option would be to contact Japanese fansites so maybe Japanese fans will request them for the next game after Storm 4 (because it’s safe to assume they won’t be in that game).

      Anyway rather that focus on four characters that sadly aren’t in the game we should think about other characters we’d like to be playable in this game. Dwelling on the Sound Four now won’t help.

  • Sh☯nenJump L☯ver

    hmmm well they’ll probably be support again

  • ZenkaiNinken

    Can’t believe people are getting upset that four characters who aren’t even that interesting aren’t getting in the game, nor can I believe people are STILL asking for the boring Seven Swordsmen as well as Ginkaku and Kinkaku. :/

    • Mathew Gibbons

      Because all of those characters have unique abilities other playable characters won’t have. And in the case of the Sound Four they’ve been support only in two games yet despite the fight with them being a big moment for several characters they remain support only.

      • ZenkaiNinken

        More people with swords and two guys who have weird sealing tools and Kurama chakra, and one of them got sealed before he could even transform into his Cloak Mode? Not to mention that all of these guys went down faster than they’re worth mentioning? Coooool. Sorry to sound so sarcastic, but yeah, that’s how “unique” they really are. :/ That’s just my opinion however.

        The fights that the Sound Four were in are supposed to make you get hype for the Leaf shinobi that fought them, not the other way around. If could have been four generic Sound ninjas with basic abilities and it wouldn’t have mattered. And to be honest, these guys are overrated anyway. These guys needed Curse Seal Level 2 to fight Raido and Genma of all things. Fodder jonin! And they all died against GENIN level ninja! When they were hyped up to be mid-jonin! Its dumb. But again, those are just my opinions.

        • Mathew Gibbons

          My personal interest is in having more what-if scenarios to toy around with in Free Battle. The fact many of these characters didn’t get to do much in the series is exactly why I want them in a game, to toy around with the idea of other fights that could have been.

          Plus for the Sound Four it would mean having a story mode for the Konoha Ninja who fight them and Konoha ninja that aren’t Team 7 deserve more attention and Kishimoto isn’t going to give it to them the games should.

          • ZenkaiNinken

            Other fights? Like them all being pwned in one shot by KCM Naruto or EMS Sasuke? XD I’m sorry, but I couldn’t resist.

            Anyways: Oh please. We already have three extra story modes, we don’t need another one. And the Hidden Leaf side cast have PLENTY of attention. That is, if you’re willing to give it to them; they’ve gotten a lot of attention in the anime filler (which most people don’t get because “filler sucks heheheheheh”, morons) AND they’re all pretty much bonafide badasses thanks to their actions in the war, so I don’t see why I should think they don’t have enough attention. Only four of those guys need attention anyway (Shikamaru, Choji, Neji, and Kiba) and they’re already some of the best developed side characters in the first place (Well sans Kiba, but whatever, 3/4 aint bad) so again, I don’t see the issue here. :/

            • Mathew Gibbons

              It’s just something I enjoy about games like these. It’s something I enjoyed with Dragon Ball games too, using the playable characters to create my own fight scenarios. The more characters the better and something the Naruto games need is more villains which the Sound Four, Seven Swordsmen, Ginkaku and Kinkaku would provide me with.

              • ZenkaiNinken

                Bleh. They’re still boring to me. :/

                • Mathew Gibbons

                  Maybe but in that case you would be fine either way.

                  • ZenkaiNinken

                    Yo, I’m glad that its confirmed officially that they won’t be in here. I’m sick of this fanbase, the Naruto game fanbase, thinking they should get everything they want the mintute they want it and if they don’t, they bitch and complain. You know why people are bitching? Because they were fans of the old games back in day, back when CC2 was spoonfeeding them to the point where they put freaking Hanabi in UN3. Now that its it a new series and fan input isn’t as recognized, they’re getting sour like a bunch of grumpy old men. That shit is so annoying (and I just realized I’m regurgitating everything HystericalGamez said in his Shisui rant. XD)

                    • Mathew Gibbons

                      At the same time if they do add them at some point they’ll finally stop going on about them.

                    • ZenkaiNinken

                      No, even if CC2 adds every freaking character imaginable in Revolution, there’s STILL going to be bitching and complaining about the roster. They are NEVER SATISFIED. NEVER. NEEEEEEEEEEEEEVER.

                    • Mathew Gibbons

                      Yeah but at least they’d be bitching about someone else.

                    • ZenkaiNinken

                      That’s not good either.

        • I’m not even a big fan of them in fact hardly at all, but I was really looking forward to at playing as Tayuya if they were added.

    Ewwww enzo is in the screen shot

    And we got Iruka?
