A “Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution” playable demo was featured in an event hosted by Bandai Namco. According to a report from Crunchy Roll on Jan. 30, the trial version of the fighting game shows off the exclusive character that was previous announced, Mecha-Naruto.
Players were able to choose between Itachi, Kakashi, Naruto, Sakura and Sasuke to fight against the new fighter. After defeating Mecha-Naruto, the robot will then transform into “Mecha-Kyubi.” The controls from “Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution” remain identical to “Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution 3 Full Burst.” However, the graphics appear to be “cleaner” and “sharper” in the upcoming title.
Mecha-Naruto was designed by Masashi Kishimoto, the creator behind the “Naruto” anime and manga series. In total, the latest installment of the “Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm” should feature over 100 playable characters. You can check out Mecha-Naruto screens in the slideshow to the left of this article.
