Good Saturday morning Saiyan Island! Anko Mitarashi and Kurenai Yuhi have been confirmed to be in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations! The news comes via images released images by Namco Bandai Games Japan. Of course we haven’t seen much of Anko or Kurenai in Shippuden so these characters will have the abilities they’ve displayed from the Shonen generation. In otherwords, Naruto Part 1. However, at this point in time they have only been confirmed as support. In case you are wondering the Japanese text “サポート専用” stands for dedicated support.
In addition to that, Shino, Hinata, and Kiba have been confirmed as playable characters. Currently only pre-timeskip images are available for those three, but rest assured the timeskip versions are also confirmed.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations is a 3D fighter in works by CyberConnect2 for the Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360. It is scheduled to be published in North America, Europe, and Japan by Namco Bandai Games in 2012. For more information, please visit the Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations section.
