Anime-fied: Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution getting tons of footage

Well, I guess I spoke too soon when I hoped that Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution wouldn't totally be a "filler" game made to annualize the Ultimate Ninja Storm  franchise, like Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations was a couple of years ago. 

Unfortunately, Bandai Namco have just gone and announced the very thing I was hoping not to hear: That Revolution would include over fifty minutes of original anime footage created by Studio Pierrot, who animate the Naruto Shippuden TV series. Why am I worried? Well, Generations used that very same selling point when it was in the hype machine, and the result was that the game effectively replaced all the coolest aspects of the series' single-player experience - exquisitely-rendered 3D cutscenes and gargantuan boss fights - with slow, dignified narration from Hidekatsu Shibata (voice of the Third Hokage) and lengthy cutscenes that didn't look any better than what you'd get every week on TV or your streaming service of choice. 

Maybe I'm overreacting. I certainly hope I am. Those trailers do show a lot of rendered action that could only be part of a sweet QTE sequence. Don't let us down, Bandai Namco!
