Hiroshi Matsuyama has talked about the gameplay changes in the upcoming multiplatform title, “Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution.” According to a report from Shack News on April 23, the chief executive officer at CyberConnect2 revealed that his company usually refined the combat system in the previous installments. For the upcoming title, however, they decided on a complete overhaul.

To do so, CyberConnect2 sought outside help by seeking advice from Capcom, the company responsible for “Street Fighter” franchise, which is probably the most well known fighting brand on the market. They also talked with the lesser known SNK Playmore, the developer of “The King of Fighters” series. The goal from the company is to have games from the “Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm” series be played in competitive tournaments like Evo. Doing so should increase the exposure of the franchise to players who aren’t fans of the animated television show.

At the same time, Hiroshi Matsuyama also revealed that the control setup should not end up being more complicated even with the new battle system. The executive explains that CyberConnect2 still wants “Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution” to cater to beginners who are also fans of the animated television show. The “super-anime expression” should remain intact in the upcoming title as well.
