      Don’t bother.
      You didn’t miss much. Just buy Storm 3.

      Yea, generations was a filler and a way for CC2 to test their new online and Kawarimi system. I did not bother either. This one is a no-brainer. Those guys truly love Naruto. I’d spend a fortune to play a Bleach game developed by CC2.

    And here I thought the Japanese gaming industry is finished, had lost its focus or whatever nonsense media were spouting. Platinum games and CC2 beg to differ and I know whom I’m putting my money on.
