While there are multiple possibilities, Tobi/Madara (Tobi Confirmed), Zetsu and Konohamaru are as good as any.

Nice find mate! I'm surely hoping for Tobi/Madara but while his abilities are still unknown in the anime I kinda doubt this.

This seems about right as it was announced somwhere that all of akatsuki would be in the game as playable fighters so that's almost a positive yes.
As for konohamaru i can't see him in the game but obviously there's a chance he could be.

Nice find mate! I'm surely hoping for Tobi/Madara but while his abilities are still unknown in the anime I kinda doubt this.

Well "tobi" could easily be in the game, just have a range of idiotic attacks and jutsu, i believe he's already been in one game and he was very comedic in it. But by the time pain/pein attacks the village we've already learnt that tobi = madara, so i'm not sure which way they'll go.

08-20-2010, 03:26 PM
Zetsu has not faught anyone yet (as far as i know). So i doubt that we will see him as a playable character.
We will most likely play as Tobi, not Madara.
Konohamaru is a good bet, considering his new jutsu :p (the one he used against Pain)
I wouldnt be suprised to see Zabuza or Haku, since most people love them. We already know that there is a character that isnt in the story (Lars), so whats to stop them from choosing Zabuza or Haku?

Remmetje
08-20-2010, 03:26 PM
Why fingers crossed? You know they aren't in Shippuuden and since it is a Shippuuden you won't be able to see them (apart from Lars, whois the only outsider).

It would be cool if the first Hokage and Madara were at least one of those three. I know nothing about Zetsu (I don't read the manga, just japanese anime) so I can't say anything about him. But having those three in would be the greatest.

ReverendSID
08-20-2010, 04:17 PM
I'm almost positive that Tobi is one of the other 3. Konohamaru wouldn't surprise me either. I'd kinda like to see Raikage as the third myself. I know the anime won't reach it for a few more weeks at least, but we've seen his abilities in the manga, so maybe. There's also a chance that the 3rd will be Kurenai, since she's the only one of the main kid's Jounin's that isn't listed there. Even though she's never actually fought in Shippuuden, there's a chance they'll toss her in just cause like they did on the last PSP game.

Currently 39 characters have been confirmed (http://www.saiyanisland.com/games/naruto-shippuden-ultimate-ninja-storm-2/characters/). Who are the other three? While it is not confirmed, we would bank on Tobi/Madara and Konohamaru to be number 40 and 41. But as for the 42nd character, well, looks like only time will tell!

I'm sure the 8 tails Naruto will be IN the game, I just doubt he'll be playable. It'll be a cut-scene during the Pain fight in story mode, maybe some button commands, but I would be astonished if they actually let you play in that mode. Especially since he didn't DO anything when he was 8 tails turning 9, he just stood there screaming and had a conversation with his dad in his inner world. 6 tails might be playable as an awakening for 4 tails since he did do some fighting in that form. But it strikes me that that would be really unfair. :)

u might be right, but i think 8 tails will be in a cinematic cutscene when u have to press some buttons (button commands...or whatever it's called) to break free from pain's Chibaku Tensei but i'm not sure he'll be playable

I hadnt thought of Danzou, it really depends on where the story mode ends. Im still supporting my theory that it will end when Madara reveals his 'Moon Eye' plan. However (major Spoilers):

If it does lead up to the Sasuke vs Danzou fight, this fight could be just before Madara reveals his plan. Although i highly doubt it, since im unsure when it happened. Then Danzou is a candidate for a playable character. Since he shows of his moves, even though they are kinda stupid :p

I would like naruto to go 7 tails cos the 8 and 9 didnt do much but stuck in a massive rock roaring but when he was 7 tails going skitzo on pain in the water and pain went flying when his almighty push didnt do shit that was awesome. But not much has been said about whats covered in the game i hope all the fights are gonna be covered not just the big ones like id like to do kankarou vs sasori, suigetsu vs kisame, team kakashi vs itachi and team gai vs kisame etc although not the longest fights still awesome.
Heres hoping
Madarame
The first
Danzou or Raikage likely to be stupid diaper kid konohamaru though.

Kankuro's distance is kind of weird with the puppets hanging there. Unless the person playing didn't know how to play, the combos he shows are uninteresting. The only thing he had going for him was the last puppet (which I remember being a defensive puppet).

I really dig how Sasuke forms chakra. One hand in a seal, the other on the his sword handle.

08-25-2010, 09:02 PM
Tobi would be fun, I guess, although I could see it now if they added his teleportations in it would be frustrating as hell...

Konohamaru is almost a guarantee but I would love to see the Raikage. His showcase of fighting moves is after Pain's battle so maybe they could possibly squeeze it in. Crossing my fingers, cuz that would be fun to play.

Takamura Bear
08-25-2010, 10:05 PM
Apparently, the latest issue of Shonen Jump had a page on this game and they had a circle ring around Anko. Whatever that could mean remains to be seen.

As for 8-Tails, even if he is in the game, I doubt it will be anything more than an interactive cutscene. Even if it is, will it be pressing the buttons to stop Naruto from tearing the seal off and going 9-Tails, or will it be Pain using his catastrophic planetary construction techique on the Fox? Probably none of this lol.

Also, I guarantee that Danzou/Danzo will not be in this game, not until the next one with all his funky moves. Hopefully the next game will also have Kisame transformed state. *wink wink*

hmm.....i think that video is pretty good, but if anyone use kankuro online, i'm going to beat them (kankuro has a really strange distance, it could be easily for me to pass the puppets and start attacking kankuro like sasuke did)

Remmetje
08-26-2010, 09:53 AM
It still could be that noone really knows how to play as Kankuro and thus making him an easy opponent. But it also seems his puppets are kinda slow and are easily avoided. All in all he seems to be a rather weak character at the moment. His awakening on the other hand is massive and strong, but you can only activate that at a certain moment during the game which is not the best thing to rely on :)

Kankuro has always been the character with the highest learning curve but he is by no means weak. In fact he is insanely strong because any attack that hits his puppets is automatically blocked and canceled. My brother spent a year learning to use Kankuro and now I haven't seen a single opponent damage him in over hundreds of fights.

All joking aside, my brother was at Gamescom and apparently his opponent was good. Too good in fact.
I think their match was a little high level for the cameras because both of them used every trick they could think of and barely scratched each other. A tribute to a good match. A little boring to watch tho i'd think...

The only game series I know of that goes off the manga (and thus goes farther than the anime is at release) is Bleach: Heat the Soul on PSP.

This might be off topic, but I was just thinking that Bleach is definately a series that needs the Ninja Storm-like treatment. There's so many characters in that anime, you'd probably be looking at a 50+ roster.

There's so many characters in that anime, you'd probably be looking at a 50+ roster. I loved the 2 Blade Battlers games on PS2. 4-player fights, big list of characters. I've been hoping for a next gen version forever. Especially given how far along the story is now compared to when the 2nd was made. It would be an awesome game. Unfortunately it seems that Bleach games are only being made for the PSP now, and none of those have ever been released in the US. The way I understand it, a different company owns the rights in the US than in Japan - and that company has some kinda deal with Nintendo, which is why all we get is DS games and those two abominations on the Wii.

TG Wolf
08-28-2010, 06:17 PM
Back on topic, has anyone found any kind of confirmation on the last 3 characters?

Short answer. No.

Long answer-
All we have to go on is speculation and the opinion of every person this side of the solar system; no matter how ill conceived some of those opinions are (sorry to say but true).

A game designer's statement that "All members of the Akatsuki will be playable" seems to lend credibility to the possibility of Tobi and Zetsu being in the game. Now if Tobi can be in the game then there's a chance Madara is too even though he hasn't really fought much he was revealed BEFORE Naruto vs. Pain so it is a possibility.

If Tobi/Madara is in the game then I see no reason Zetsu can't be. He was the 3rd Akatsuki member we saw (he rose from the ground after Kakashi carried Naruto away after his fight with Sasuke at the Final Valley in the Pre TS) and despite him not having fought we at least know 2 of his Jutsu: He creates Spore Clones and he feeds on chakra. If they can create a move list for Ino who basically has NO jutsu then they can make one for him.

As for the third character I'd say it will probably be Konohamaru, I don't really want it to be since I'd prefer Danzo or Raikage but I doubt that will happen.

*shrugs* best I can say is just lets wait and see. We will certainly know then xD

The Hokages definitely won't be in the game from the start, I mean they weren't even in the first Storm initially (other than the Third and that's because he had a story critical battle) and even when the other Hokage were added the were only Supports.

Now I know people can argue that this game doesn't/won't have Support only characters and this could be true but it remains the simple fact that beyond Minato (who is in the game) None of the other Hokage had any part in Shippuden so have no claim to be included.

As for arguments based on Characters possible = Length of Shippuden this game covers. Let me remind you that at E3 a developer stated that "UNS2 would go beyond anything that has been shown in the anime." Now I noticed immediately that people assumed this related to the fact that the US anime hadn't yet reached the end of the Pain Arc but at no point did tne developer specify EXACTLY what he meant. It is fully possible, especially with CC2 being a Japanese company that the game MAY go beyond the Pain Arc and have more content (Tho unlikely.)

Anyone who asks the question to this "Then why do they only show up to the Pain Arc?"
Well I don't know about you but if I was a Game Developer I wouldn't be in a hurry to reveal the ending of my game as well as Developers in general not really being in the habit of doing so.

My Point: That while for an initial line-up they will be including ONLY characters that are in Shippuden- Anything is possible and restraints like No Known Move Sets and such are no deturrence to a character being available for use (Eg. Ino xD)

Anyone who asks the question to this "Then why do they only show up to the Pain Arc?"
Well I don't know about you but if I was a Game Developer I wouldn't be in a hurry to reveal the ending of my game as well as Developers in general not really being in the habit of doing so.


Moon Eye plan? ;)

I'm pretty sure Killer Bee wasn't shown before since was announced, and even if he was then it was very close. It was definitely after the pain arc.

so u mean i could unlock him if i play through story mode? :confused: Yes, he's the very last character unlocked. So if you desperately want to use him online you have to unlock absolutely everyone before you do that. But that's not really new. He was the last character unlocked in both of the Shippuden games on PS2 as well.

Speaking personally, even if the CE was released here, I wouldn't use the code. I'm gonna unlock him myself.

Well he sort of is in the anime, as soon as sasuke kills orochimaru kabuto absorbs his cells, so he's there already.

I COMPLETELY forgot about Guren! I think it would be a great idea to throw her in there! Unknown move sets aren't really a problem since they managed to make a pretty unique one for Ino, yet Guren has a great moveset they can build off of!

She may not be a "main" character but she was very important and influencial for one of the arcs. I bet shes had more screen time than most of the akutski (god i hate trying to spell this word!). They had kimimaro in the first game and he was only in there for a handful of episodes. Guren would be a fantastic idea!

Firstly, Character List has been updated to include Tobi.

We really have no way of knowing who the final characters are. Zetsu seems likely with the achievement and Guren would be cool but I think they are avoiding filler characters so maybe not. We know from videos and achievements that Naruto and Sasuke have their epic battle and who knows we might get their earlier forms but I doubt it with the leaving out of Pre-TS characters.

I know it definitely won't happen (99.999999999999%)
but I would so laugh if when the game is released we find out that on the character select screen you press LT or RT to switch to Page 2 and ther is another 42 characters there....

I still can't imagine Zetsu being a playable character. I can imagine him as a support character. According to Madara himself, Zetsu is not a "front line fighter".
However I could imagine him as a "Copy Ninja" (and I don't mean Kakashi by that). He is shown to be able to make himself a near-perfect clone of a ninja (but a weaker one). However this abilities were shown after Pains invasion so this is still unclear.

The developer diary 3 is real interesting.


You hear Pain's English voice for the first time. Sounds good, just a little older than what he looks. idk
At 1:30 in the vid, you can see Tobi pop up and give a goofy double thumbs up. I'm not sure if that means he'll have his goofy moveset or a kickass Madara style.
Those last two characters are bugging me. Honestly.

I'm going for the goofy moveset at Tobi's. Maybe Madara will become available as DLC later on but that is all guessing.

Those two characters could only be younger Naruto and Sasuke from what I could tell from all the trailers they released, all in all saying 44 characters while having 42 character slots seems kinda silly so all we have to do is wait a little more time to find it out.

My vote is on the developer screwing up and saying the wrong number :P That final video showing the entire Character select screen seems very definitive to me.

Could see maybe just the younger characters as different costumes and thats what the developer means.

I really wish I'd been keeping up with the story... I had to stop after volume 31 because of a lousy income, so I'm expecting a lot of spoilers, but the game looks amazing. Going out to pre-order tomorrow.

Can anyone confirm that Lars can be obtained only through pre-order, however? I saw it mentioned while flipping through some site (maybe even here? I don't remember...), but didn't put a lot of thought into it when I read it.

lars isnt a pre-order bonus, hes jsut an unlockable character in game.

I've been considering it, but how is my manga collection supposed to get any larger if I don't buy the books? :)

Definitely good to know. I don't have to dig for change to make the pre-order.

after searching the wikipedia, it says that the last 2 characters are "suprise characters" what do u think it would be? My guess is......gah, give me some time to think xD btw just like sage mode naruto, akatsuki sasuke DOES have a different moveset he has the ability to use his "ultra-cool" mangeykou sharingan while the normal one uses curse mark stage 2 (i'm not a fan of stage 2 but i am a fan of stage 1)

That is nice, any source to back up your statement Density? I'm really guessing the younger versions of Naruto and Sasuke will be the two suprise characters as they keep showing their clash in every damn trailer they release :)

I did watch some gameplay of the Naruto Vs Sasuke fight(after getting inside orochimaru's lair and sasuke enters naruto and talks to the 9 tails)
highlight for text



And during the fight you "flashback" and play as one tailed kyubbi and curse mark 2 sasuke from valley of the end, so it pretty much confirms them as a skin anyway

I think it's about time Zetsu got himself into one of these games, plus that would make all Akatsuki playable... Madara would be good as well as he has some really powerful techniques.

EDIT - Or maybe Yahiko?!

As far as I know he hasn't been confirmed...

The Naruto.Wikia site for me says


??? -surprise character1-
??? -surprise character2-

So probably someone put it there to get our hopes up (as anyone can edit wikipedia) :confused:

Guess it's time for speculation on the secret character again? :p
My guess is...Madara, Valley of the end against Hashirama Senju Madara, not tobi madara, would be a nice "secret" right?

wow....everyone wants madara, here's a little spoiler



Tobi has a new moveset when he uses his awakening mode, (not a goofy moveset, a more serious one, maybe he starts to act like madara)

While true that Tobi is technically classed as Madara, he has a completely different appearence as he is in his akatsuki disguise.

To both serve the storyline and fill the fans enjoyment, I think it would be smart to add a proper Uchiha Madara character in his full uchiha armor and have a proper kick ass move-set ;). He's bound to pop up in a cutscene in the story somewhere (minus disguised as Tobi). In that case he'd need to appear in the story (outside his disguise), therefor automatically making him a playable character! :)

Unless he's an NPC, in that case I'd be very annoyed :(

Although my theory is flawed with the chance he will not be making any cinematic appearences within the story... :/

i never seen madara in the anime expect in flashbacks...like when he was telling sasuke about his past (when sasuke finished killing itachi)

He made an appearence with Pain and Konan in Amagakure (or whatever the rain village is called) on top of Pain's tower... I think that's the only appearence apart from like you say: flashbacks.

We knew Sage Naruto was a seperate character for a while now and I think we did about Taka Sasuke too. They wouldn't hide 2 characters this close to release unless they were someone epic :)

I don't think so, take a look at the first page, the first post. We see all known characters we knew back then. Naruto and Sasuke are only time in there. So if we take Naruto and Sasuke two times get 44 Characters and so we have the last 2 secret characters.

Edit: Of Course, I have no proof myself. Maybe you are right, maybe not, I don't know.

Check out this video. It shows Taka Sasuke and Sage Naruto as seperate characteres yet we still have 2 hiddens to go :)


EDIT - I don't know if this is anything to go by... And yes it is an old video but I don't think it's been mentioned yet.

YouTube - Zetsu Confirmed to be in Storm 2

It's picture of a scan for the game that mentions Zetsu. Obviously that doesn't mean he's playable but along with the achievement about unlocking all akatsuki, sounds like he may be playable!

I sure hope he is... He's one of my favourite Akatsuki's :)
