The upcoming “Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution” features several new gameplay mechanics. According to a report from Saiyan Island on April 24, the latest installment will be introducing two new techniques to the fighting game series. The counterattack and guard break attack should add more depth to the gameplay.

The counterattack is done by pressing the R2 and square buttons at the same time while playing the PS3 version of “Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution.” When timed correctly, the maneuver will be able to stop the opponent’s strike. The counterattack will not only knock out your enemy for a lengthy period but also prevents the summoning of support characters into the battle.

The other new technique is the guard break attack which can be used by simply pressing the up button on the directional pad. The maneuver would smash through the guard of the opposition, leaving them open for subsequent attacks. However, the amount of uses of the guard break attack is limited on a per battle basis. You can find a screen showcasing the combat in the upcoming title from the official Facebook page of the “Naruto” gaming series with the photo added to the top of this article.

CyberConnect2 recently revealed that they are making significant changes to the gameplay of “Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution” in order to better cater to the hardcore fighting community. The development team eventually wants the series to be a part of tournaments played by professional gamers. The aforesaid counterattack and guard break attack techniques could help sway some potential customers who may be on the fence as to whether or not to buy the upcoming title.

“Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution” on the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 is coming out later this Sept. in North America. The anime-based video game has two limited editions along with the standalone release.
