Guilty Crown: Lost Christmas Game to be Released in May

January 15, 2012


It has been announced by the people at Nitroplus that they have created a new PC game – Guilty Crown: Lost Christmas. The game will cover the events prior to the series, leading up to, of course, the event of Lost Christmas itself.  The details on the official website show a whole new cast of characters, and of course it looks beautifully designed. The game is expected to be released on May 31st, and you can see a preview of the game below.

Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations Japan Preorder Bonus Announced + More Game Info

December 5, 2011

As well as the details listed in my previous blog post, there was also a recent interview with the development team of the game lead by Yuki Nishikawa and CyberConnect2 (CC2) president Hiroshi Matsuyama who spoke of some improvements to the new game over the previous Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 game.

 

    • Enhancement #1: Respawning location of substitution jutsu has became farther than previous Storm games
      With this adjustment, you (as an attacker) will have some time to deal with the opponent’s return attack. This is a modest change and the time is really short, but high-level players could gain more options after the substitution is performed.

 

    • Enhancement #2: Vulnerable moment after releasing Chakra Shuriken
      CC2 received a lot of negative feedbacks for chakra shuriken spamming”, so we made some tweaks here. CC2′s focus in is not to make shuriken useless, so you can still experience the shuriken battle feeling. In Generations, you will not be able to keep shooting Chakra Shuriken as fast as Storm 2.

 

    • Enhancement #3: The wait time to activate Ultimate Team Jutsus now takes longer and can be cancelled out with attacks easily.
      In Storm 2, sometimes Team Ultimates seemed invincible, especially when used as a counter attack to the opponent’s attack. With this enhancement, you can now cancel the opponent’s Team Ultimate by attacking them quick enough.

 

    • Enhancement #4: You can now cancel ongoing combos and jump
      In other words, you can cancel your ground combo and switch to an aerial combo. Also, you can jump and avoid the opponent’s counterattack when your combo is guarded.

 

    • Enhancement#5: Players can now cancel ongoing combos and immediately start a ninja move!
      If your opponent performs a substitution and uses a jutsu to counterattack your combo, now you can perform a ninja move (and possibly get the opponent’s back!) With this, you can take advantage of the opponent.

 

  • Enhancement #6: You can now press the substitution jutsu button slightly prior/after hit!Example: If the L2 button is pressed before or the moment your opponent’s attack hits, you will perform a substitution jutsu and dodge the attack, without taking any damage, at the cost of depleting a part of the substitution bar

    Example 2: If the L2 button is pressed after your opponent’s attack hits, you will perform a substitution jutsu and dodge the attack, but with the damage AND at the at the cost of depleting a part of the substitution bar.

———————————————————————-

There has also been some unease and controversy from fans surrounding the announcement that you will be able to buy physical Naruto cards that add extras and possible advantages to the game, of course unfair to those who don’t wish to shell out more money for cards when they have paid £30-40 for the game itself. This was the original press release that sparked the upset amongst fans –

“In a new first for the NARUTO Storm series, NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations will feature an innovative system that integrates real-world collectible cards with the in-game universe. Coming soon to Europe, the next generation of NARUTO collector cards will each carry a code allowing players to unlock corresponding artwork for their in-game profile and engage in a special mini-battle to unlock a bonus skill and gain an advantage in the main fight.”

 

After a flood of questions from concerned fans, to try and ease these concerns the company behind the game put this out:

“The game balance will not change dramatically, the main focus is the collection element and not making Super Naruto or anything.”

 

Whether that will be enough to satisfy fans of course remains to be seen.

———————————————————————————————

And lastly, also announced was a bonus for those who preorder the game in Japan – “With the pre-order of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations, Japanese fans will be able to get their hands on a free gift – the Ultimate Ninja Storm Best Sound CD! As the name implies, this compilation CD features some of the great music from Storm 1, Storm 2, and Storm Generations. In addition, the CD will contain the debut single of Killer Bee! If Google’s translation is correct, the song will be called “Tapping Out ♪ Strongest Rap”.  Also, the Ultimate Ninja Storm Best Sound CD will be “autographed” by Killer Bee himself!”

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations Box Art and Character Roster Info

December 5, 2011

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!

(*Full credit to saiyanisland.com for the image*)

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.

*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*

  1. Suigetsu
  2. Karin
  3. Gaara
  4. Kimimaro
  5. C
  6. Darui

  8. Ao

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.
