Man, I just think it's lame using a transformed character... No offense man
But anyways: Kakashi and Shino FTW
I think its lame too lol, I'm hoping they disable Sage Naruto and Akatsuki Sasuke for online because from what I've seen it looks like even their regular combos do more damage and with how many people like those characters/want to win cheaply, that'll be the first thing to get abused in online.
EDIT: And I believe they anticipated this and thats why they disabled the ability to start in an awakened form.
I can already see it. *The most overused and abused characters will be: Naruto, Sage Naruto, Sasuke, Akatsuki Sasuke, Jiraiya, Itachi, Pain, Minato, Killer Bee, and Tobi. *Probably even Lee and Gai because of their 8 gates mode.
