that is right. and, the english game doesn't come out until after the final anime episode it covers (i don't think UN2 came out until after the tsunade arc.) accel won't come out until after the rescue gaara arc in the english shippuuden anime. so we have a while, especially since they are showing fillers and the fillers are about 100 extra episodes. 50 weeks. actualy less, there aren't exactly 100 fillers and we are about 2 episodes into them. so 49 > weeks left.
Honestly, NUN 3 is the best Naruto game out in the US, so scrapping it would be stupid. Also, since it is already out, it is impossible to do so. As for bringing over the Shippuden games from Japan early, I think it would be a mistake. I am already saddened by that fact that Naruto will eventually end. I want to stretch the amount of time Naruto is on air*for as long as possible. For that reason, I refuse to watch the Shippuden episodes until they come out in the US. All of you who are impatient and are skipping way ahead will be sorry when you hit the last episodes, while we who wait are still enjoying episodes we have not yet seen. Naruto will end eventually, so why not enjoy it for as long as possible, rather than as quickly as possible?
you gotta note, the games do follow the anime, alot of the English followers only really follow the anime. (I'm assuming, the little kids wouldn't use the net to look for the manga if they could just watch it.)
I don't own the game yet, I'm waiting until summer hits. However, yes, the market does mean one thing. but enraging the English fans is another. There isn't much they can do, making the pre-time-skip games for the Wii and PS3 is the best they can do right now.
The manga might be in the timeskip, but the anime is in fillers, just like in Japan, (although, right now, the manga is lightyears ahead of the anime :S, whatever, I like Team 10). We're just doing the same, using the fillers to allow the manga to build up.
Of course, I might be sounding stupid. but who knows, Storm might use the Shippuden costume as possible 'alternate colours' you know, as a teaser?
The people who want the Accel games need to stop complaining and just order it from Japan instead of being a baby about it.* Just order it from Japan and get SwapMagic or a special chip thing for your PS2 that lets it play Japanese games and you're good to go. There are sites that have english translations of the game and what to do to get stuff.
