Recently I have been reading about the upcoming UNS release and have been looking forward to it, and since I want to share as many of the details as possible about the game, I realised blog posts would be the best way of doing so. So with that said, on to some details about the game!

As you can obviously see, this is the official cover art for the game. Although this is the Japanese box art, the European versions are apparently almost identical.
The game will be released on 23rd February in Japan, on March 30th in Europe, and currently the only listing for America is Spring 2012.
Now with that out of the way, I will now give a list of the characters who have been revealed to be in the game whether as playable or as support only.
- Naruto Uzumaki (Young, Teen) with awakenings 1-Tail, 4-Tail, 6-Tail, and 9-Tails Chakra Mode
- Sasuke Uchiha (Young, Teen) with awakenings CS2 and Susanoo
- Sakura Haruno (Young, Teen)
- Kakashi Hatake (Teen, Adult)
- Asuma Sarutobi
- Ino Yamanaka (Young, Teen)
- Shikamaru Nara (Young, Teen)
- Choji Akimichi (Young, Teen)
- Might Guy
- Tenten (Young, Teen)
- Neji Hyuga (Young, Teen)
- Rock Lee (Young, Teen)
- Hinata Hyuga (Young, Teen)
- Shino Aburame (Young, Teen)
- Kiba Inuzuka (Young, Teen)
- Minato Namikaze
- Obito Uchiha
- Itachi Uchiha
- Kisame Hoshigaki
- Zabuza Momochi
- A (4th Raikage)
- Mei (5th Mizukage)
- Onoki (3rd Tsuchikage)
- Hashirama Senju (First Hokage)
- Tobirama Senju (Second Hokage)
- Tsunade (Fifth Hokage)
*These so far have only been shown as support characters, although it’s safe to assume some of them will also be be playable too such as Gaara for example*
- Kurenai Yuhi
- Anko Mitarashi
There are also clearly some big names missing from the list such as Tobi/Madara, Kabuto and the other Akatsuki members to name a few. With that in mind, CyberConnect22 have said that there will be 70 characters altogether on the game, so of course we will eventually see those characters and plenty more on top.
