Reveals New Characters, Modes in Clash of Ninja Revolution 3
TOMY Corporation Reveals Sand
Ninja Signature Jutsu Moves and New Modes in Highly Anticipated NARUTO Shippuden:
Clash of Ninja Revolution 3
TOMY Corporation today released
all-new gameplay footage and character art revealing the special jutsu moves of
the ninja from the Village Hidden in the Sand in the upcoming Wii fighting game,
NARUTO Shippuden: Clash of Ninja Revolution 3. The reveal showcases the
signature moves of the three Sand Siblings: Gaara, Temari and Kankuro, as well
as their sensei Baki, and for the first time ever in the Clash of Ninja series,
Also released this week are new
details about additions to the game’s multiple gameplay modes. In Versus mode,
the newly added cooperative tag team functionality allows up to four players to
fight in two-man teams and to tag in and out of fights. In the brand new Wi-Fi
battle mode players can take the fight online and battle in head-to-head or
two-man squad battles.
The game also features several new
game mechanics. Latent Ninja Powers for example, allow players to access new
techniques or jutsu when they get close to the end of their life gauges. Used
strategically in battle, Latent Ninja Powers can make the difference between
life and death.
On November 17 gamers will be able
to play as these powerful ninja and experience the new modes in this classic 3D
fighting game exclusively for Nintendo Wii. With more than 35 characters, the
latest iteration in the series features new and improved gameplay mechanics and
for the first time, WiFi functionality.
A brief description of each newly
announced character and their special jutsu moves is also below:
Gaara is a highly defensive
character whose latent ninja powers accentuate his defenses. In latent ninja
mode, Gaara can block any type of attack in a neutral pose; even jutsus that
would normally be "unblockable." New in Clash of Ninja Revolution 3, Gaara
also has a special sand coffin counter jutsu that can be activated during
Temari’s wind abilities control
the space around her on the battlefield, and account for not only her high
damage output to enemies, but also for her own safety. Even when blocked, the
wind that Temari expels with her giant fan pushes enemies away from her,
giving her more breathing room to attack from a distance.
Kankuro is a puppet master and
utilizes this skill for his attacks. Kankuro does not throw his opponents –
his puppets do. This means that the throw command can be executed even when
Kankuro is airborne.
Baki has wind-based abilities that
linger on screen after they are unleashed. These are helpful in creating
situations where he can sandwich an opponent between attacks, and unleash the
imminent damage of the tornados he sets out.
Chiyo is one of the most unique
characters in the game, and a completely new addition to the Clash of Ninja
roster. All of her attacks are done through the use of her two puppets. The
strong attacks control one puppet, while the weak attacks control the other. She
also has a chakra shield which allows her to block any type of attack in
exchange for draining her chakra gauge.
