    The whole Garara Retrieval arc was only thirty or so episodes long. I hope it has something else to give it some length.

    Also, that arc only had four of the Akatsuki members in it, Diedera, Sasori, Kisami, and Itachi.

    I wonder if the game will at least have Kakazu and Hidane in it. I doubt it.
