Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, known in Japan as Naruto Shippuden: Narutimate Storm 2
The gameplay retains many of the elements from the previous game. The game will feature 18 interactive and destructible stages and more than 40 playable characters. Each character can also gain new combos and jutsus by activating the Awakening Mode. As the story progresses, players will unlock new Jutsu and Ultimate Jutsu for certain characters.
Support characters will be returning and a new feature, named Drive Gauge is introduced in the game. Depending on the Drive Gauge, players will be able to unleash combination attack with the support characters. The jutsu clashes from the prequel also makes their return.
Free roaming also makes a return. The game will feature a 1:1 recreation of the Hidden Leaf Village. In addition to the Leaf Village, players will be able to roam outside the village, ranging from forests to deserts, and also the Hidden Sand Village. Boss battles will be returning, with quick-time events and cutscenes.
Players can access multiple online features; quick matches have opponents chosen at random, ranked matches with leader boards, match customization, as well as the availability to host matches.
Over 40 Characters (Transformations not included apart from Sage Naruto and MS Sasuke which are seen as seperate characters weirdly)
Most of the characters may not have tranformations but they are instead called awakening which allow a boost in stats for a period of time.
