Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 2's story mode looks RPG-ish

0

If you didn't know it yet, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, has a single-player story mode. Three, in fact, from the perspective of different characters.

What Namco Bandai haven't shown us is exactly how they intend to tell this grand ol' tale of super-powered ninjas. Until now, that is, and it seems to be a bit different from the last game.

The last game stuck players in an open map area patterned after Naruto's home village, which served as a hub for taking missions. This time around there seems to be some hot map-transitioning action. The fixed camera angles remind me a bit of JRPG-style exploration, with 3D character models running around on 2D-looking scenery. An interesting change, since not a lot of fighting games really get too deep into telling stories.

Check out the screens below, which show more scenes like the above, as well as cool-looking boss battles against Sasori and Kakuzu. Personally, I don't mind the new style, as long as they can cut down on all those insufferable minigames.
