Shinobi Striker Propositions

Hello Everyone,

 

Since I added a post about some MMO/Online ideas about Naruto, why not add some ideas to existing good game?

 

I was searching before I created any post here, for a centralized  fanbase place...but I was a bit confused, because there is none. I found Twitter, that I personally don't use(not popular in Europe...at least not in central)

I felt like YT was not the place to go either, but I found a lot of fan base forums like Reddit and so on...and then I found Namco Bandai Forums...but they seem to be empty, why most of players use some unofficial places instead of this one?0.o (except for the fact that forum randomly sets my language to French, I can't find search bar or it does not exist and technically it's a bit messy:D)

 

Anyways! to my ideas(and some I found randomly reading forums, also some I mentioned in my post about MMO/Online )

 

1. My most selfish one - Please give me Neji :D I would like to use his jutsus and have a byakugan character....

Having Jūken style and 8 trigrams...that would be amazing!

Or 64 palms(Couldn't find good quality of him in old outfit, love it more than his new one)

2. Lags - Still present and need to be dealt with, although still better than it was: ) (at least on PC)

 

3. Village system - People would love that, Imagine that you could feel more unique due to your village and your special own place. Yes I know, online is not enough yet to make all of them full, but online is growing. Game had a rough start but it's getting better and better. I'm constantly checking online on steam and it's getting slightly better:)

 

4. Outfits - There could be added more ninja like, samurai like or common/casual for naruto setting, we could perhaps get a possibilty to slightly adust them? for example, the scroll Jiraya always had on his back, could be an asset you could put somewhere else, like wear it like a sword(I mean straight  on your back ) or make it smaller, have different graphical choices (different pact, jutsus, sealing jutsus, summoning weapons and other)

 

5. More characters - of course! people are missing many of them;]

 

6. We don't need more characters to learn more jutsus! just upgrade our masters so we can exp them more and unlock new jutsus. For example - Hinata could teach all the Hyuuga jutsus, Jiraya could teach us a new ultimate which would be that he+his targets in a range disappear immediately and are teleported to a place made out of toad stomach that holds them and damages(something like yamato ulty) or if disappearing is too hard to introduce at the moment, perhaps just surroiding changes to that and people are absorbed by it, just think about making lots of concept stuff like - Toad sage with this and that jutsu, looking like this and that or...Byakugan Assasin, looking like this or that...tons of possibilities we do not have now due to lack of jutsus, combinations of these jutsus in different character types and so on.

Each Ninja had a lot of jutsus there that we can utilize, shame we got possibility to have only 3 jutsus, but more the better! Take a look at this:

This would be a separate point but I'll put it here. My character is basically a Mist ninja, but there are not enough water jutsus from all we could have from naruto universe(same goes to Doton which is my second fav element), so I'm trying to get as close as I can...Did the same for Stone ninja, and I bet not only me. Having more jutsus gives us opportunity to build our unique themed ninjas, since there is no MMO or Online version on bigger scale we can Roleplay or feel more unique, I'm talking about here, game has big potential;]

The second part of this point is limitation due to Type of ninja - Is there anyway to rework the system, or make part of the jutsu that clearly do not need a certain type, to be shared under different conditions or something like that? For example, If Neji would be introduced, you physically  could not have Byakugan on him if he would not be a healer, Neji is pure DMG dealer not a healer... Same goes to Sharingan. Or perhaps Different types of the same jutsus? Don't get me wrong here - I love the limitations as they actually give you possibility to  build into certain direction, sacrifice something for something else but, I think this needs to be reworked somehow, but got no idea how at the moment(1:30 AM here:D)  as if I would have the Severing Wave on tank, or any other water jutsu, or more jutsus of earth into different type like Attack type...this gives way more fun to create own unique ninja with own set of jutsus. It's always a surprise to opponent to get to know what type are you, and what set of jutus you have and can use in different situations; ]

7. Bukijutsu - We could use it, just for fun purposes. Weapon arts could be great, Imagine having jutsu to add Raiton to your melee weapon(cool graphic on each type of weapon...yea not on the fun weapons though) or Fūton or have jutsus like this one beauty here:

You guys thought I'm gonna post some boring samurai and BAM! one old(great graphic, was way better than the later typical anime one that came out for the rest of the series;/) good Dance of the Crescent Moon jutsu:)

8. A bit further but if Village system would be in, we could get some missions that are territory fight just like in Guild Wars or For Honor where fractions in pvp fights controls territory, awesome stuff

 

9. Rewards system is not rewarding at all - I just feel bad with the fact that there are so much rewards everywhere, it is not giving me anything rewarding at all. I wish I would have to do lots of missions, fight lots of times, do any in game events, perhaps pvp events or missions...to just get the money for a jacket that gives more armor or my sword or something I just feel that there is too much content and the market part of the game is dead because nothing motivates me to get any items. I just get what I need for my ninja in terms of fashion+item perks and that's it.  So it's like too much not needed content...if this will be kept this way this will be broken, I mean, the main 2 aspectsof this game are still the same - PVP and Concept builds that also leads us to pvp:D

 

10 . Another selfish one - Please less Boruto content, not a fan of it;f

11. Genjutsu please? this could be be done so easily

12. More ninja tols! I'd like to play a trap master, concept builds are awesome, the net things could be a good addition for example

13. If villages would be in...player organizations of course would be needed, but that's a future thing I guess. Players making fractions and having possibilities to have anything to do with that, would be awesome. Clans would raise and so on.

You are doing great job guys, game is really awesome, best naruto game so far, and hope that you can push it further instead of abandoning it when next game will come out, for me..deeper into Boruto is a big no. I'm stuck mentally at part when series had the old realistic graphic, more blood and world had a good setting, I accept the akatsuki part also but later things are getting really weird but that's a other discussion, anyway if you need more feedback, please remember that as I mentioned at start, fan base is weirdly split and people do post lots of feedback to reddit, youtube movies as I saw and others;]

 

Keep up the good work, thank you!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hello kakaonutella! Thanks again for your kind suggestion! We will be more than happy to forward your request to have more maps in the game =) If you have more suggestions, please don't hesitate to drop a message to us at anytime!

 

16. There should be premade restriction - if you got 4 man premade, you can play only with other 4 man premade, otherwise it's unbalanced as hell to win vs a premade team. 3rd night a row, when premade teams start to play i am losing 100% of games, so they are ruining fun for solo players. 3 man premade is however fine but if you got a bunch of randoms vs bunch of team played guys...no can do.

 

Thanks again kakonutella =) You know very well that we are always happy to receive your suggestions, if you have more please don't hesitate to let us know! We will be always at your disposal for forward them to our team together with the others =)

Well...the 4 man premade are still ruining the game and also because of it lowering online. 4 man premade should have different game mode because % of win vs 4 man is...nearly 0.

 

Great job with the mod where you could play only ninja masters - this should be more often;] It's nice to see a lot of heroes like Itachi or Konan on the field.

 

Tournament would be nice, once per month someone could be a hokage with tiltle.

 

More jutsus - We still suffer lack of them as posted up...but yea, 2 slots for jutsus hurts also... Would be nice to see more jutsus in lets say expansion or something like that. If I want to create a toad sage I can do a mix of skills...there aren't many but it's awesome for a start;]  Just the fact that I can't do that in other specs just defense as for summon toad...

 

Headbands should be independent of hairstyle so You could create a toad sage headband guy, without Jiraya hair or use Zabuza's headband that is on the side of his head, on other hairstyles.

 

Also...did I miss something  or you can't have Jiraiya's scroll on your back(it should be added as accessory not top/bottom slot) ? I'm using Full set of Hashirama, just to look cool with scroll...

 

 

 Lost the numbers but... I just realised that we got 4 slots for characters BUT: 1. We should be able to transfer these ready characters between slots, instead of re creating them(so move my melee from 1 to melee slot 3 for example) 2. We could use more 'characters'. If I created a guy who looks like a sage, and I play as a sage, I would like to keep that look for my Defender sage guy instead of swapping tiltles and whole character look to play a mist assasin

Hello again 🙂 Thanks for your comments! Our top priority is to constantly improve our products, so we do value your words! Player's feedback are important to us, and we will be happy to forward yours to the attention of the relevant department 😉 

 I think you'll be happy about Neji. I heard he might be in Season Pass 2.

Most of your ideas sound pretty good, but it would take quite some reworking to do (the village system). Love them all for the most part (especially the costume thing).

As for Boruto content, there's not really nearly as much as you say. Outside of the HUB world and 3 characters, the meat of the game that people actually play (rather than run around) is pretty much a Naruto Shippuden game (honestly, Storm 4 with it's DLC is more of a Boruto game than this one). All but 3 characters (including both Season Passes) and the majority of Custom Outfits/Accessories/weapons are either Naruto, Naruto Shippuden or Shinobi Striker original. The characters that survived to the Boruto Era all also appear as their Shippuden selves during game play (if they're playable).

 

Personal wants of mine outside of what's listed in the 1st post:
-Recolorable Outfits (Xenoverse Style, rather than pre-set colors like presently in Shinobi Striker. It would allow so much more customization.)

-All outfits/weapons/accessories in the game buyable with Ryo, rather than having to rely on RNG for a lot of them (give more purpose to money in this game)

-If Recolorable outfits are off the table, pay Ryo to make "Adjustments", changing the outfit/weapon/accessory to a one with a similar texture/model (such as adjusting a Naruto Outfit to Naruto Outfit (Toad), or Brown Cat Gloves to Black Cat Gloves), allowing more Custom Items to be accessible without having to rely on RNG.

-Maybe a new store run by Katasuke (that guy that created the Science Ninja Tool) which sells various ammo for Science Ninja Tools (like the currently released ones + other elements & effects)

-Outfits for Non-Custom Characters (like Next Generation outfits + the variety of Custom outfits with their names attached....I mean Sarada: Sasuke Outfit? She's never worn anything like that, why's her name attached to it? Or things like the Storm games did, drawing from various parts of the franchise for alt outfits.)

-More Missions/Non PVP modes (we haven't got any new ones since the game launched. And it would be awesome to have a sort of custom mode where we can choose the NPCs/Boss & Stage)

-OFFLINE MODE!!! WHY IS THIS NOT A THING IN THIS GAME YET?!

That's most of my contributions. Anyway, here's some random ideas for costumes/accessories/weapons/hair styles/etc:
Sound Ninja Outfit & Mask (there's already NPCs in the game & Sound Headbands, why not?)
Samurai Armor & Helmet (see Sound Ninja)
Kagemasa Cosplay (Strange only his visor is in the game)
Hair styles & Outfits based on everyone in the Storm games (c'mon, the hair styles basically reuse meshes with a similar poly-count, it should be rather simple for those, as well as adding TONS more options for customization. The large variety of outfits in the Storm games could also be a great asset rather than making up outfits for Shinobi Striker, though they'd be a bit harder as they have a much higher poly-count than previous appearances in games unlike the hair styles...what method do you use for upscaling the models from the Storm games? They have a higher poly count, yet a lot of the folds in clothing and stuff are in the same places, so they were clearly used as bases.)
All outfits available for both genders (kind of like what you're doing for Season Pass 2. It's pretty awesome you're doing that now, but there's still tons of outfits that could look good with either gender. Female Avatar wearing Sai's outfit anyone?)

A Sword based on Kimimaro's Bone Sword (Kimimaro's one of my favorite characters, with badass abilities, makes more sense as a weapon than a chocolate covered banana)
A Great Sword based on the ones Jiraiya used against Pain
Iwabe's Staff (you have his hat/outfit in the game, why not?)
Masks based on the Battle Puppets (I know it's odd, but it could be really neat)
Masks based on Kakuzu's masks
Akatsuki Straw Hat
Outfits/Masks/Swords based on the various Susanoo (a bit unorthodox, but I think it could work quite well)
Facepaints based on Kankuro's various paints/Shinki's paint
Facepaint based on the Reanimation Jutsu's cracks (that would be pretty cool)

At least one more playable Boruto character. From the New Era, only Boruto, Sarada & Mitsuki are playable in any game (outside a Chinese Mobile app). It's odd how somehow Shikadai hasn't been playable in a proper game yet, despite being one of the most important of the Next Generation outside of Team Konohamaru. I say Shikadai & Sumire would make good playables. The entirety of Season Pass 1 (and 2 if what I've heard is correct) focuses entirely on the "Naruto" part and nothing on the "Boruto" part.

Honestly, some outfits/hair styles/jutsu based on Filler/Movie Characters. They rarely get acknowledged outside the anime, but I was quite happy to see Shira got some recognition (well at least his Seven Heavenly Breaths technique did). 

Offline Mode. That can't be said enough.

The community wants new maps. Could we also get a Clan System please? It could be like in JumpForce or better , it can have like a ranking system with some rewards.Also we need jutsu not Only from Mentors, you could impliment this in ninja scrools or open a new store in the lobby where will be new ninjutsu.Maybe some new Pve Content like Boss Raids , where we will have 8 players fighting Ten Tail or Madara's Susano? We can also get a some type of a battle royale mode, having a bigger map with 20-30 players , the point of this mode will be to find two scrolls like in the Chunin exam or to kill all the enemies. Waiting ...

That's the thing I've mentioned before, this game brings us closer to a MMORPG with more RPG in it, and we demand it more, the hunger is bigger^^
