    • My translations never kid 😉

      • Haru Onodera

        I know bro but this is still…hard to believe

  • TheDBZSquirrel .

    this is amazing 😀

  • White Fang

    FINALLY!

  • Redblur

    ITS MAHVEL BABY

  • Neferpitou :3

    Oh damn.Now that’s some awesome info! thanks SGZ as always 😀

  • )))Travis))) ( Chihaya)

    YAY!!!

  • Random Name

    And just like that, I’m invested in this series again.

  • AzIz

    Finally something NEW

  • AzIz

    and the new features looks really good

  • Haru Onodera

    I hope all team mates get a separate health bar. No one long for all.

    • lolFalco

      It has to be a single health bar or the matches will all go to time

      • Andrew Blagburn

        Not neccessarly, that would just depend on the player. Or here’s a thought, get rid of the time limit.

        • René Davidoschnaps

          Probably going to be like this: Every character gets own healtbar, but if one is defeated you lose. Like in Tekken Tag Tournament. They even said one time that they had planned it with Tekken in mind but have decided not to implement it. Now they got around and i expect it to be like i suspect.

  • Kleber Felipe

    So basically, u can choose at least 3 playable characters plus two suports, enabling one ultimate 4, 5 people like the image of hyuuga clan, ie, there is 100% chance of a team ultimate jutsu of the 5 Kages * ____ *

    • Andrew Blagburn

      No brah, one main, two supports. And you can switch your main throughout the battle.

      • )))Travis))) ( Chihaya)

        This guy get’s it! ^^^

        • Andrew Blagburn

          Thank you! xD

      • Kleber Felipe

        -___-
        three or plus characters are playable, but one at a time, plus 2 suports, otherwise it would be impossible to have a team ultimate jutsu with 4 people like the hyuga clan.

        • Bdock3601

          Not really, having harashi jump in during the cuj (like supports do anyway) but without him being part of your team is completely possible in fact I suggested it to cc2 so maybe they listened lol

        • Andrew Blagburn

          Bro, you get a 3 man cell, just like in all storm games, then you can swap out between the 3. Did that simplify it any?

  • funnymitchell

    IDC anymore im stepping in the hype train and im not stepping out until after the game is released

  • )))Travis))) ( Chihaya)

    This will be the best Storm game IMO

    Wall battles and now Tag Team O.O My $60 is ready!!!

  • Mj

    AWESOME! Thank you! ^-^

  • Gamejtv

    Tag battles sounds awesome. Unfazed by the Hanabi announcement though

  • Bdock3601

    Omg, leader swap….am I in heaven? Ahhhhhhh

    • Mj

      I know right! this is going to be the best strom game!

      • Bdock3601

        Yes it is

    • EYES OF HEAVEN

  • RockSauron

    I’m guessing Hiashi just shows up in the Hinata/Hanabi/Neji combination jutsu and isn’t a playable character.

    Also, in both Phase 1 Juubi and Phase 3 Juubi, along with the Tag Team screens on the bottom right… looks like all party members are on screen at once and not just switching over to the other characters. Could this mean group battles are a thing now?

    • Mathew Gibbons

      Maybe he’ll be a support character.

  • Bdock3601

    So what button would be for leader swap?….for ps4 it could be the TouchPad but what for other consoles?

    • Gamejtv

      Maybe whatever R3/L3 is called on the other console

  • Gamejtv

    I like how they consistently put a roar sound effect for the Juubi

    • The Juubi might as well be a big cat. I get a chuckle every time I have to type “rooaaar” on one of these scans.

      Might as well confirm Reptar as a boss battle.

      • White Fang

        Can’t wait until the Juubi goes “Nya~”

  • Billy Esquire

    Wow, this is very exciting!

  • Bobby Jennings/Godless

    Whoa.

  • naruto uzumaki (clone)

    this is the news i have been looking for ! thank you SG ! and all the people that work there ! 😀

  • Thank you ShonenGameZ! *bows* I Praise the ground you walk upon!

    • White Fang

      I praise more, it’s master by the way. :3

      • Sorry Master but i must worship SG more this day.

        • White Fang

          Naw its because Hanabi is finally playable! I praise SGZ more I meant!

          • I see! She was one of your desired for revolution correct?

            • White Fang

              Desired for every game.

              • TheGameTagerZ

                To correct you on what you said in the One Piece comments section. It’s not that we don’t allow them, they just simply don’t want to lol.

                • White Fang

                  Oh lol. Well it’s because of the heat you all have had in the past and even present I mean. Thus I said what I did.

    • Bdock3601

      This reveal though, if that’s a 4 person cuj, then I think cc2 may have took one of my suggestions

      • White Fang

        Docky I just hope Hiashi is more than just a CUJ-only character. But we’ll see I guess.

        • Bdock3601

          hed be cool,but my suggestion was just to allow for mor than 3 in a cuj simply by linking the jutsu to a team name and having all characters of that team jump in

  • Holo the Wise Wolf

    Well… This caught me by surprise! I’m very excited about this! Thank you so much for this scan and translation. Like always a perfect job.

  • Leedle Leedle Leedle Lee

    So can you swap between two friends just like tekken tag or just you with three characters. Great move by cc2 either way

    • Bdock3601

      I belive it means you can swap between your team not multiple people on a single team…..but who knows

      • Leedle Leedle Leedle Lee

        I like it either way so im cool

  • sawada91

    Damn. Still no release date?

  • TG Bingo

    if we get hanabi then i hope we can get rin as well then i can finally make my dream teams

    • Bdock3601

      Hanabi is only playable because of her importance in the last

      • White Fang

        Rin is important too lol. For making Obito go on his little forever alone outburst.

        • Mathew Gibbons

          Rin could be brought in if they decide to make the Tobi unmasking include playing through Obito’s backstory (please).

          • White Fang

            When Obito is in Zetsu armor?

            • Mathew Gibbons

              Yeah. Basically considering how Storm 3 left off in the middle of the war at the point that should be right before Tobi’s unmasking (it even includes Tobi being unmasked, we just don’t see his face and he runs off) it might be a good idea to start the game with Obito’s backstory starting with Kakashi Gaiden and ending with him becoming Tobi and flashing forwards to his mask being broken in the war and the player character shifting to Naruto.

              That said I think we’re starting off with the Madara backstory.

              • White Fang

                Regarding Zetsu Armor Obito as a character they might just refer to that character as ‘Masked Man’ since Zetsu Armor Yamato wore literally the same thing too and had the same moves essentially. Except Yamato could summon Hashirama’s Buddha.

  • Enzevil

    This is really awesome news! Hanabi would be an awesome playable character, but the best news is the Leader Change!

  • Hiroshi Matsumoto

    I don’t think I’ve felt this happy for a Storm game since Gen but this looks incredibly pleasing. Leader change? Wow! Lookin’ good CC2.
    #GoodJob

  • Emmanuel Casseus

    Took em this long to make 3vs3 a thing lmfao.

    • Bdock3601

      It’s not even 3v3 most likely, and that doesn’t even have a place in this series.

      • Emmanuel Casseus

        Mmm, good point. Probably just another gimmick like that charged team thing from storm 3.

  • Asuka gonna get dat booty

    Awesome and thanks

  • SasukeUchiha5DX

    Wow! Looks awesome! Looking at the Hyuuga image, does this mean Hiashi is playable too and you can have 3 support characters?

    • White Fang

      He is highly likely to be CUJ only. The CUJ is probably called ‘The Hyuga Clan’ or something. But we have to wait and see 🙂

    • Mathew Gibbons

      I can see him being there at least as a support character.

  • Bleedz

    Meh, show me Madara scans already.

    • Bdock3601

      “Show me that thing that is a guarantee instead of surprise features”

  • White Fang

    A question. Regarding switching support characters to playable… does that mean…
    Cee, Ao, Chojuro, Kurotsuchi, Akatsuchi, Foo, Torune, Anko, Shizune, Kurenai and the Sound 4 are now playable? It’s quite worth it to think about since ‘Leader Swap’ turns Support characters into playable ones.

    • Bdock3601

      We may have to wait to find out

    • LuxbeyTheMechromancer

      i really hope so. with the way it sounds, they’d have to take out those characters completely if they didn’t want them played as. either that, or piss people off even more by having them as support only and not be able to switch into them. i do really hope that they’re playable now. i’ve been waiting to play as Tayuya for so long now.

    • If Anko ends up being playable.. CC2 has been forgiven lol.

  • Kogure Yuuya

    Team Swapping? FWKING YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Hanabi? I don’t give a crap. I’d rather have… well anyone.
    But yes. Swapping is awesomeness!

  • MHM

    YEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
    I have been begging them for this for mooooonths
    FINALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLy

  • MHM

    God bless you CC2
    and thanks for taking on of my suggestions
    Never felt happier before

  • Aldus Espiritu

    YES. AWESOME. FINALLY. I’m really excited for this game. Now more than ever.

  • Miyoku Takanotsu

    Love that CC2 decided to add Hanabi Hyuuga in the game and can’t wait to see how the Tag Team Battles will be like in this game

    • Guest

      Hanabi is irrelevant. They are so many other great characters that could’ve filled that slot, it’s really a waste

      • TheGameTagerZ

        She’s not irrelevant in The Last movie and this is the movie version of Hanabi.

        • Guest

          Ik it’s the movie version. She still is irrelevant. That slot could have been given to another character, besides another “hyuga clan member” it’s a waste.

          • TheGameTagerZ

            She’s still key to the story plot. What is a waste to you isn’t a waste to someone else.

            Also you can’t waste a slot. Slots are just visual representations of where the characters would be. I can draw up 1000 slots right now and it wouldn’t mean a thing. Saying “a waste of resources” makes more sense.

            They don’t make this up as they go by the way, before they can even develop the game they have to write up how many characters will be in the game, how many stages, the story, features, and more before they’re allowed to start.

            • Guest

              Her being in the plot to the story aspect is fine but Having another Hugya as a playable character is a waste. Dude even shira from the filler would have been better than her smh get real.

              • TheGameTagerZ

                Shira isn’t cannon AND has nothing to do with the movie. Right now we’re at the phase where the movie characters are being showcased more than the Story itself. Hanabi is key to The Last story so barely anyone (except you really) was surprised about this reveal.

                You aren’t going to use everyone in the game so the way I see it who cares if characters people don’t like are added? Even if your favorite character was announced, hell if ALL of them were announced I can almost guarantee you long term you will not use 90% of them.

                • Guest

                  Shira was use an example you ignorant person and you really shouldn’t be assuming wtf ppl do. Hannbi is a waste as a playable character. Other characters such as ginkaku and kinkaku that never got added to the roster are better as playable character rather than another huyga clan member. I My opinion, I really don’t care what you think so u can gtfo my comment

                  • TheGameTagerZ

                    I’m not being ignorant. The problem is that you can be critical but others cannot when they disagree with you. Ginkaku and Kinkaku were important to you, but many would disagree with you. Plus on top of that knowing how the fanbase is even if CC2 added them in people would complain that they suck to play with.

                    If you don’t care don’t respond then. This is an open comments section where people can reply and respond to each other. I haven’t insulted you, but I’m challenging your opinion and being critical.

                • Guest

                  Ginkaku and kinkaku arent important to me, they were used as an example just like shira was. U really need to stfu

                  • mr.noob

                    lol u cant win against a mod

                  • The Lost Rogue

                    What are you a child? Your opinion changes nothing, nor is it relevant. Your incessant whining displays vividly how Obtuse and foolish you are. Casting down insults on someone is simply challenging your stupidity? A great amount of people, like Hanabi. Just like you would rather they use space for another character you like. Think before you speak. If that’s possible. I know it isnt.

                • The Beast

                  For me she is a surprise…. A GREAT SURPRISE 😀

            • Guest

              You are ignorant

              • TheGameTagerZ

                That’s not how you talk to others also tone down on the cursing that’s about the only thing filtered on this site. You want to be rude or be critical and refuse to listen to other people’s opinions then don’t bother here.

                • Guest

                  Stfu u dummy

                  • TheGameTagerZ

                    Goodbye.

      • Miyoku Takanotsu

        Agreed. but CC2 is too lazy to do that

  • Miyoku Takanotsu

    But honestly i have to say that can’t to the Final outcome when CC2 finish the game just hope they don’t mess it up in someway

  • DI

    hanabi playable but not gin/kin brothers…. cause cc2

    • Miyoku Takanotsu

      maybe they will be playable you never know.

      • DI

        like zetsu?

        • Miyoku Takanotsu

          Hope so and a few others too.

    • micheal johnson

      Well I wasn’t as disappointed with them not being playable, but the 9 tails form should have been in the game. You cant harp on the past though and they seem to be covering all the wars battle variations so far, we have some content left to go but so far so good. I hope they cover up to the Boruto movie and give the main cast their 700 outfits.

      • DI

        keep hoping

    • Denny Malcolm

      They’re still months from finishing the game. Wait a few more months before saying that.

      • DI

        Ive been waiting years and still nothing so what should I wait?

        • Denny Malcolm

          Do more research on the game. You’ll be surprised how far they’re going for the next and last Naruto Storm game.

          • DI

            ppl can say anything but cant do everything

  • Naruto_2015

    I’m hyped! Thanks SG.

  • Sh☯nenJump L☯ver

    When I read the title of the article I thought damnit they’re listening to foolish character requests again but this leader swap feature satisfies me

    • Bdock3601

      Besides with hanabi in, we can’t almost guarantee toneri yknow

  • Juvis

    I hope will be Tag team Battles and not the possibility of using 3 characters with the same life bar.

  • Levi Ackerman

    This is Amazing!!!

  • Hentailover

    Rub that Hanabi all over me!!! … wait, that came out wrong… *checks his own nickname* Nah, actually, that came out just right!

  • Remix Koetsu

    Finally, I’ve been requesting Tag Battles since Generations. It better not be a shared health bar.

  • Gianora

    OH boy im so exited now. but im just wondering now. lets say if i swap in Gara for naruto or other. do they shear the life bare or do they have individual life bars.? what do you guys think?

    and tnx for the awesome translation.

  • British_Otaku

    About time, surprised Storm and Storm 2 didn’t have the feature. >_>

  • LeonardoM

    Finally a Hyuuga team jutsu! Last time Neji and Hinata don’t have it, now they include Hanabi in it. So I guess it’s a 3 team TUJ with Hiashi tagging along!

  • Enturax/Turbotrup

    F*ck switching, I want actual gameplay changes! And being able to play 2 vs 2 at the same time would be much better than this, BTW!

  • TobiramaOfKonoha

    I like surprise character’s like these, I just hope Hanabi isn’t TO much of a joke character like Kushina.

  • TobiramaOfKonoha

    I do wonder how spammer’s/try hards will handle the leader swap. For example cna you switch back and forth spamming jutsu without worrying about your gauge depleting?

  • Evil-BoredomXIII-2

    I hope all the characters that were support only are playable cuz now we have Hanabi so now cc2 needs to make characters like Anko,Kurenai,Shizune,and The Sound ninja four playable.

  • The Butler

    i hope they change those drive, awakening or whatever attacks i want to be able to perform the ultimate jutsu and also use the awakening mode in one battle.

    • )))Travis))) ( Chihaya)

      100% agree.

    • STORM MASTER

      but i dont think they return old system but i want the old one

    • Denny Malcolm

      If we got enough people to help say “Yes” Or “I agree I Want this back”
      We’ll eventually reach out to them and they’ll do what the players want 😛

  • STORM MASTER

    hmm does Hiashi will be playable character?

    • )))Travis))) ( Chihaya)

      I doubt it… he would have been confirmed then..

      • STORM MASTER

        in SR CUJ max was 3 characters but their CUJ are 4 character,it means we will have 3 supports????

        • White Fang

          It could just mean that Hanabi, Hinata and Neji have a CUJ and Hiashi appears in it.

          • STORM MASTER

            i want see their CUJ so bad

  • sakuya18

    there so many factors that play into this new system that they put this up just for the hype. number 1. What if you don’t want to switch characters and you end up losing with your main character does that mean you lose the whole bottom. Also what happens if you lose with switching your characters is this going to be like MVC where you lose one character but you can still continue. Or is this going to be like Tekken where you lose one character in you lose the whole game. not to mention now I’m going to really have to know what character me want to play with because some characters I only pick for support because I like their support attack but I don’t like fighting with them.

    • Guest

      Most likely all 3 characters will share the same life bars
      .
      Also you don’t have to switch between characters, you can be whoever you want the whole match.

  • Storm3pro .

    I’m going to wait to see how good it is through gameplay first and not screenshots. There’s always bugs with whatever they do when it first releases. Hopefully this will be another online demo for us to test out for them and we can then tell them what to fix on it.

  • Guardian Byakko

    This scan greatly satisfies me! Thanks for translating!

  • Ino Yamanaka

    I’m excited for Hanabi and to have an all girl team, let’s all hope for the rest of The Last crew to be playable, especially Ino.

  • ★GintokiSakata

    Seriously? Strongest justu?…Sigh

    • Denny Malcolm

      Naruto & Sasuke together is a god battle. They do acquire there own unique powerful jutsu. Suprised you don’t know this unless you’re not a real Naruto fan 😉

  • positiveemotions

    I have a feeling we won’t have any support characters this time cause of this pictures.

    The first picture says we will be able to use every character that is a support as a new leader which gives me a big hint and a big possibly that is plausible.

    The 2nd pic you can clearly see Sasuke doing a combo instead of his jutsu so another reason on why we might have any support characters this time.

  • STORM MASTER

    can you translate this ?please

    • White Fang

      Is that Neji? Whats this from?

      • STORM MASTER

        yes its Neji.

    • TheGameTagerZ

      We don’t cover this stuff sorry.

      • STORM MASTER

        why?(((

        • TheGameTagerZ

          We don’t cover that stuff plus it’s impossible to read anything passed whats in the yellow.

          We cover games and sometimes movies that’s it.

          • STORM MASTER

            OK,now i understand

    • Huh? Neji!?

      • STORM MASTER

        yes, i only know its masashi kishimoto art that’s all i know.

  • ylan Mcslotherson

    ooohhohoh amaterasu rasen shuriken. ohohohoohoh

  • GruitCakk

    Genial! Hanabi! Estoy feliz si incluyen a los 4 del sonido! *w*

  • Wait, so Storm 4 is going all Raging Blast on us? PLAYABLE Support characters?
    Hell yeah!

  • JustARandomGamer

    What I’d really enjoy would be the ability to have your support characters in battle with you, not just waiting for you to command them to use their Jutsu. But I know that there’s possible framerate issues and the fact that your Supports could get annoying.

    Yes, I know many people don’t agree with this at all, but let me dream :/.

  • Naruto the Super Sage

    They really should put Wind Style:Rasengan in the game. That would be really cool.

    • Charged Jutsu

      • Naruto the Super Sage

        yea one variation should have giant rasengan, one has giant rasengan, one with wind style: rasengan, and one with massive rasengan

  • Omoi of the Hidden Cloud

    They better make me a playable character! I’m in the manga and anime! I deserve to be in at-least the last Naruto game! (Storm 4)
