Welcome to Friday Update #67!


Many of you have been wondering how we'd balance Sakura into a fighting game. So here's a more in-depth look at her Power Punch!


During planning for NNK Sakura was really hard to design. We needed her to be a viable character players want to use, but also retain her character. We didn't want to make up Jutsu's for her or simply have her all Genjutsu based. Basing the time line of NNK after Naruto but before Shippuden removed a lot of the restrictions we had put on ourselves to keep true to the anime.

The way we solved this dilemma was to assume that Sakura had undergone some of her training with Tsunade, harnessing her frightening power! But we wanted to still make it fit into the way people played with casting Jutsu's while still being different. As mentioned in the previous update Sakura inputs seals to channel power into her arms and legs. You then have the option of a Power Punch, or a Kick that will be discussed in the next update.

The Power Punch is a devastating attack that launches your opponents far into the distance with bone crushing damage. It's safe to say that if you see Sakura running at you limbs ablaze with Chakra, you'd better get out of the way! Be careful if you're on the delivering end of this Power Punch though, missing a target leaves you open to attack.

Giving Sakura the Power Punch opens her up for great versatility. She really has become one of the most fun and challenging characters in the game and we know that you guys will love using her just as much as we do!

Cool :D but there is one collision. If Sakura is hwere in a time when Tsunade teached her, which is after Sasuke activate his Cursed Seal mk2 and Naruto awaken one-tail transformation... you know on what I aim

LOL... that means Naruto gets tranformation, along with Sasuke... But then no super version for Sakura...
It would be easier to balance if they made a Shippuden Addon, but that would take even more work... Since Sakura is more battle-ready in that version.

You are correct but transformations aren't something we're planning for our first release.

No, mangekyou no, but he should get more jutsu and got more hp, chakra and stamina. Kakashi is very strong, and could match with Naruto (S)... and Sasuke (S) is in Shippuden... very powerful.

And that berserker isnt a bad idea, like that her "bad me" inside her take control of the body and her power etc. will increase rapidly :D
