Naruto: Clash Of Ninja Revolution 2 Roster Revealed

I seem to have gotten to this party a little late, but I didn't realize this was out until now. It seems Tomy had a press conference, where they showed off a video of Naruto:CONR2, and this video showcased all of the characters that will be in the games final roster(as far as we know).



Picture:

The new characters worth noting are:

  • Choji
  • New Character? Red Haired Guy
  • Kurenai
  • Asuma
  • Baki
  • 2 ANBU Operatives(the two masked men, so far they don't appear to be anyone other then ANBU operatives
  • New Character? Blonde Lady
  • Anko
  • Kabuto
  • Yugua Uzuki(Hayate Gekko's girlfriend, appears in 2 episodes)

Other then that it is all of the normal characters, all of the Sannin and all of the genin kids.

While the roster did some good things(Baki, Asuma, Kurenai and Anko), it also did some things that I have to question(two random ANBU guys? Yugua?, new characters?), I just can't help but wonder, if they spent time developing those 5 characters why couldn't they have spent the same amount of time developing the Sound 5? Or Haku and Zabuza? Just doesn't seem like the best use of their rescources putting these in ahead of those I mentioned.

EDIT: The two ANBU have been named as of this post, Yugua is also shown.

this is fake where is sasukes blue costume and look closely and you wiil see shikamaru or the sand siblings are not in their new outfits and im pretty sure they wouldnt put in character that none of us have heard of!

i am a naruto fan that reads the manga and seen all the episodes and played all the games i have never seen the red haired dude or the blonde before, and frankly some of the charcters do not look like them like asuma,kiba,anko, and kabuto.

The picture isn't the best quality, but this is taken from the E3 video that was from the TOMY comference.
Try the sources in this thread(may need a bit of scrolling)

I agree that it is odd they added some characters we haven't seen much of, and even created new characters for this game, but this is indeed the final roster(or, if they tricked us somehow, it is a good chunk of the roster).

eclipse said...

No, this is the roster. The unknown characters are characters made specifically for the game because it has a story mode that doesn't follow any of the main story arcs from the anime. The story is set after sasuke has already left the village. So thats after the Sasuke Retrieval Arc. It sucks, but i don't think the sound 5 are in this game. Unless its like dragonball3900 says and they are tricking us. Also, i really don't see the point of having 2 Anbu, one is enough. And I like the inclusion of Yugua, but i also would have liked Haku and Zabuza back. At first I thought this was fake too because Sasuke isn't in his blue shirt and still has his headband on. But as far as I know, its real. Hopefully the other characters we want are also there, just in hidden spaces.

dragonball3900 said...

Thanks for the info about the two new characters eclipse.

There certainly is room(in theory) for more characters, the top and bottom of the screen extend pretty far past the character slots.
Sad thing is they said they were aiming for 35 characters, and this is exactly 35 characters. So while I do hope they add more to this I gotta say it isn't looking good.

eclipse said...

Sure thing, no problem dragonball3900. Yeah, they did say 35 characters. I personally think that there are at least 13 other characters that they could have added to the game. But either way, it should still be a fairly good game.

it looks like there is kimimaro there ...

The red haired guy's name is Komachi, and the blonde lady's name is Towa. Just to stop all the dispute.

dragonball3900 said...

Actually, it seems the two ANBU operatives are named Towa(the guy) and Komachi(the girl).
Still no word on the other two characters names.

Everyone the roster is a fake some noob made it and everyone saw it and pasted it on their vids thats why on some of the vids the character select icon never moves.But anyway I saw a vid and Sauke was wearing blue,Naruto looked much cooler on the pic of him and the music is from Naruto conr if u don't believe me go on youtube and look up this vid:Naruto Clash Of Ninja Revolution 2 fight part 1 new July 31 2008.that is proof oh and Yugao,Towa,andKomachi r sadly on this game spread the truth where ever possible.

eclipse said...

No, this is the real roster image. The only reason people are in their old costumes in this pic is because the artist wasn't finished with the character art for the selection screen yet. But that other video u saw, was updated. Isn't Yugao, Towa and Komachi being in the game proof of this roster being true? Also if this wasn't the real thing, why was it taken off of youtube and other sites due to Tomy's copyright claims? This is the real thing. But I for one like this game. If u were hoping for the sound 5, i doubt they will be in the game, but they would be a cool addition also.

Oh on my last comment I ment Sasuke not sauke.Anyway that vid isn't removed I checked and it has a pic of Jiraiya on it aand not to mention some of the pics r from GNT4,and CONR and on vids they never show the curso moving when they show the roster and some of their pics looked different on the real vid and to show that I'm not lieing or misinterpreting some vids have 6 available characters some have 4 and that 1 has the whole roster it may have been made showing their dream roster but no way would they have the whole roster and they don't circle around atleast 20 characters before chosing and in some cases I saw the exact same vid but with different character selections so i rest my case.Towa and Komachi r the 2 exclusive characters and those 2 people(red head man and white/blond girl)r fake that someone threw in why do u think no one knows who they r and Towa and Komachi also r in the game but no one knows who they r so thats how u know the roster above is fake research them and u will get the fakes that they r fake.

eclipse said...

Ok here's a video proving that this roster is real. The cursor does move and it shows the two unknown characters that everyone is judging to be bad characters without even seeing how they play. Just follow this link:

Um thats fake he was either holding a camera with a cover over it to make a fake image over the sreen for the moment or he edited it on the computer I honestly think the only fake characters r the red head guy and the white/blonde lady and al though this game will rule this isn't the largest roster in the us and japan 35 is the biggest yet this game doesn't surpase it and I sgree with the webmaster the 3 anbus were questionable additions to this game oh and to finaly prove u wronge look at this vid if u can't connect to the link copy and past it over the this link or another to watch it:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5RQK8h4K0Vw&feature=related or this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2y9wwayu_S0&feature=related.

eclipse said...

How do those videos prove me wrong? It only shows, Yugao and Towa and Komachi. But I know you must be arguing just for the fun of it. You must have seen this video.

What do you have to say to that?

Anonymous said...

I just figured out that the red haired guy's name is Bando. It's on Youtube! Just search Naruto Clash of Ninja Revolution 2 and it'll be one of the top few. It shows Bando versus Yugao.

dragonball3900 said...

Yep Bando(red haired guy in the picture) is confirmed now as well.

Video:

I'm going to take a shot at this and say that the roster is 100% real now, no way anyone could fake this many characters.
Thanks anonymous user for the heads up!

eclipse said...

That's what I have been saying all along! This roster is rea. But everyone just refused to believe me. Hey dragonball, I had already posted that link before anonymous said anything about Bando, check my last comment.

dragonball3900 said...

Ah sorry about that, didn't check your link up their.

Well, now we are waiting on the blonde lady to be named, let's hope she can do something fairly cool(Bando at least has something cool).

Legion300 said...

I wish we could figure out the blonde lady's name already, I mean I'd just be happy to know her name! It would of course just make it better if we saw a fight with her as well.

Anonymous said...

what the heck! they have some random anbu and two other random people that have been in like 2 episodes and they dont have the sound 5 they are a big part of the sasuke retrieval arc!! thats really stupid!!!!

Anonymous said...

U guys here their will be a secret to Naruto:Revolution2 it may be the Sound 5,additional game modes who knows so hope for the best cuse Revolution will rule no matter what this rumor or not.

Teru Uzaki said...

okay THIS IS NOT THE ROSTER
anyone who believs it is is a complete moron trust me I know my sources need not to be checked but I have followed the developement of this game since its original design

Anonymous said...

Thats a prototype the real Roster screen wasn't developed when this was posted go look on Youtube or something to see how it somewhat looks like but I seen everylast character fight but The Mystery Woman with White hair however I did see her during a stage transition with Kakashi so Its real but don't worry I here the Sound Ninja 5 are downloadable Don't know about a stage though.

Anonymous said...

But the DLC think is only a rumor and can't be counted on to see in the game so enjoy it Sound Ninja 5 or not.

It is wrong ok that is not the actual roster. The new characters are Anbu1:Towa Anbu2:Komachi Anbu3:Yugao Red Haired Dude:Bando White Haired Girl:Kagura and there are two forms of Sasuke, Naruto, Hinata, and there is no special stage with the Sound 5 and you cant unlock them
