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.

    WRONG. It stands for selectable

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EL2AKS5AJRYRYKBTHEWTQMJ4DA Takeru

    Yup Support only for anko and kurenai, In the janapese thats what it says…. Thats a big Fail for me… Anko and Kurenai were playable in PS2 games, and both of them have displayed jutsus…. kinda lazy…

  • http://www.ninjamanager.com/teams/16145 Kira

     LOL …thats sucks i want kurenai and Anko for playable characters

  • Anonymous

    y would CC2 do this? wasn’t this going to have all the characters in the show? i would rather have kurenai and anko playable then any of the pts characters

  • Anonymous

    no i think there’re playable because kuranai and kiba are the only ones in the pic and here haze jutsu hit him so i think she is playable same with anko

    Guys, dont sweat about it! It’s clear in the japanese description letters ! It says Support Exclusive Use!!! So dont hope for them to be playable

  • Eduardo Anibal Lalla Ruiz

  • robert.gray1

    this doesnt boed well for buttler fly choji or shukaku gaara :(

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_S3L7CRXQACZXZYYH7TL5EMIPAI Salvador

    like gor 1st and 2nd hokAGES WERE SUPPORT ONLY IN STORM 1 SO I GUESS THIS MEANS THAT THEYRE PLAYABLE LIKE YOU SEE THEM FIGHTING KIBA AND NARUTOI AND THEY HAVE LIEK A MOVE A COMBO I GUESS

  • Anonymous

    Now I’ll tell why naruto storm 1 was much better than NarutoStorm2 first storm 1 was exclusive to the ps3 and the ps3 has much more memory capacity than the xbox360,soo the xbox360 limited a lot the storm naruto games, this means that if naruto storm 2 remained exclusive to the PS3 (which has much more memory capacity) the game would have been much better! (thanks xbox360! for doing the storm games more boring!!!)this is a fact!!and nothin can changed ):

  • Kim Almodóvar

    This is a little confusing since it says Dedicated Support but the images show like a one on one match and those different camera angle when theres a combo or a ninjutsu. Lets hope they decide to make them playable cuz I am dying to play as Anko in a Ninja Storm game…hope later on Shizune also makes an apperance :o

  • Anonymous

    God, why so much fus over both of them? It’s not like they did enough to manage a spot as playable. Sure, it’d be cool if they were, but no. So why is it that so any people prefer them 2 over every other Pts character?

  • Anonymous

    1)They’re newer
    2)most TS characters haven’t gained any new techniques so its like an alternate costume.
    3)They’re some of the only kunoichi, and Anko is the one of the only cool ones.
    And they’ve been in past UN Games which pisses everyone else off more.

    ignorant comment is ignorant, storm 2 only used 4GB of memory, not even close to using all the memory on disc, and i doubt storm 1 did much more than that, if you weren’t a ps3 fanboy you’d know microsoft has released patches that increase the 360′s dvd disc space, so don’t speak on something you know nothing about.

  • Anonymous

    if you see behind the attack of kurenai there is the leg of asuma , so , asuma is the first character and kurenai is the support

  • Anonymous

    and tou , danq97 the xbox 360 is not inferior to ps3 , is like ps3 with the same capacity , stupid by , the storm 2 is a shit for the online , not because it’s exit for xbox 360 -.- and this is not a console war

  • http://twitter.com/derick_m_diaz Derick Morales

    I personally didn’t want either of them as playable characters, not that they’re unwelcome, but its just another character slot less. I mean, if they can’t include the war characters because they haven’t revealed much of their moves, why should they include Anko or Kurenai who barely did anything at all in the series? They’re popular yes, but I’d rather have the cloud kunoichi who visited the leaf and fought Naruto for a bit. If Anko ends up being a slightly watered down Orochimaru with a slightly different moveset (much like Zabuza and Suigetsu) it really isn’t that fun for me.

  • Anonymous

    sorry but you xbox fanboycant change that fact

  • Anonymous

    theres not excuse for either of them to be support only when the 1st hokage and the 2nd have hardly shown much either

  • Anonymous

    support only? SERIOUSLY? why both putting them in the game then?
    i dont give a damn about the support characters T_T theyve both got enough moves to be playable and if not they can make them up like they did in the previous games..

  • http://twitter.com/Takinro Fab Brice

    We almost never saw Anko & Kurenai fight, so no need for them as playable. I never liked these “support” characters… Completely useless.
    I’ll be the most happiest man if the Sound Four is confirmed! Same thing for Darui.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Uh oh… CC2 run like Hell cause the Kurenai/Anko fans will have no mercy.

  • JENEVEUXPAS

    That’s true!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZHVZOKRXFGQMVL4A7LXLX667MI gin

    they have fought and showed enough of jutsus to be playable well at least for anko 

    anko has cursed seal , snake jutsu , twin lotus scarifice jutsu , dragon flame jutsu, summmoning anko is also about to fight kabuto soooo…..

    kurenai illusions , clones , that string bean thing , petal escape , tree binding death

    they showed more that the sound four but i would also be extemelly happy if i got to play as sakon tayuya kimimaro and kidomaru ……. which means jirobo can stay out of it :p

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZHVZOKRXFGQMVL4A7LXLX667MI gin

    you cant compare the 2 because they have been characters way longer anyway more moves shown what have war characters did that isnt in the manga NONTHING

  • Trey Donnelly

    Yeah but that Cloud Kunoichi has only showed some swinging with her sword. She’s a generic swordswoman who hasn’t shown as much as Kurenai or Anko, meaning that it would be better for them to include the latter two, instead of the Cloud Kunoichi.

    -_- its over im done u just mess it up

  • bigboss1495

  • bigboss1495

    everybody let ask for naruto green beast

  • bigboss1495

    and for a guest character asura from asura wrath

  • Anonymous

    Huff…I feel bad for Cyberconnect2. I beat they get tired of seeing people post there same ideas again and again and again, about things that won’t be in the game.

  • Andrew Powers

    correction, they can’t include war characters for 2 reasons: 1, what you said (not enough jutsus yet) and 2, SPOILERS, not everybody reads the manga, so some people would be really confused about this “war arc” everyone’s talking about. also, while neither Kurenai nor Anko have shown much, i’m pretty sure Kishimoto’s not gonna add a whole lot more, unlike the characters who’ll play important parts in the war, thus allowing CC2 to take more liberties with Kurenai and Anko than they can with most of the Edo Tensei summons

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QJLBWEIA7BZXN5UTQ4P3UFGUOA Will

    This is some kinda BULL CRAP ! ! Support Only?! If you make Anko and Kurenai support only then the 1st and 2nd Hokage should be the same lol (As stated by XGriever). All of these 4 characters have had about the same time on screen fighting lol. (1st and 2nd vs 3rd hokage) (Kurenai and Asuma vs. Itachi) (Anko vs. Orochimaru). I’m a little mad a CC2 right now, I was told that all support only characters from Storm 1 would be playable this time too…guess that was just a false rumour >_>

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QJLBWEIA7BZXN5UTQ4P3UFGUOA Will

    GOD Shizune as playable would be awesome <333

  • http://twitter.com/Takinro Fab Brice

    Haven’t seen that news. Thanks for the info if that’s true.

    Btw, I love Anko & Kurenai but as we never saw them in a real fight, it would be ashamed that they appear in the game instead of some other important characters (Darui, Madara,…).

    how can anko be suport  i dit clerly see in the picture she was fighting naruto ALONE

  • bigboss1495

    i dnt care about kurenai if she playable or not wish not but anko should be playable she should more move then kurenai,she was in the un series and she was fun to use and she got the curse mark and she was us snake move

  • robert.gray1

    shes support only naruto wiki has also put her and kurenai as support only :(

  • Anonymous

    It really seems like all the support characters from Storm 1 will be back… as support characters.

  • Anonymous

    well thats not entirely true since the 1st hokage and the 2nd were support characters….now there fully playable..and the sound 4 will probably be fully playable also

  • JENEVEUXPAS

    It makes no sense for Anko to be support only because the scan shows her beating the crap out of Naruto with no help! Also, the angle of the camera has changed as if she’s about to finish a melee combo. I think someone has given some false information.

  • Anonymous

    I just want to play Anko :c

    I dont get how Karin is playable and Anko is not.

  • beslic.josip

    I understand when Characters like the Support team from the Rakage are only Support at the moment, beacause they will be full playeable in the next NAruto game and they just did one jutsu in the Manga so far. But how could Kurenai and Anko not been full playable? 
    Look at Karin she did nothing than an healing bite in the manga and is still playable. 

    I would die to play Kurenai as a full charakter

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QJLBWEIA7BZXN5UTQ4P3UFGUOA Will

    Bahhh….Wiki Shmiki >.> They arent ALWAYS right you know, lol XD

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QJLBWEIA7BZXN5UTQ4P3UFGUOA Will

    Off Topic: You know…I’m still a little confused about CC2′s character list choice for Storm 1. Why wasn’t Zabuza, Haku, and the Sound 4 not playable in the first storm? …Did they forget about how each of them had a whole story arc? And we saw ALL of them fight the same amount, and for the LONGEST time..(Like…3-4 episodes right?!/Haku and Zabuza had even more!! LOL) If that’s not enough screentime to figure out a moveset, then idk what counts -_-. Since you put Zabuza and Haku in, then next should be the Sound 4 + Kimimaro(…he was in like 7-8 ! !) If they at least put them in..i’ll forgive them a little about this Anko/Kurenai Support Only BS…but only a little :o  [End Rant]

  • Trey Donnelly

    I believe she is, because if you look under Anko and Kurenai there is no support ring under them which most likely means that they are both full playable characters. And that is some of the best news they have ever released for this game xD

  • robert hill

    Wasn’t there a video stating that “All” characters will be accessible meaning all the supports from storm 1 will be playable? Prove me wrong but I think CC2 is going back on their word, don’t tell people everyone will be playable then make people support only -_- 

  • Inlovewithmusic122

    We have to let C2 know how bad those of us want Kurenai, Anko, and Sound 4 (5) to be playable and not just for support in THIS GAME. Because if we don’t, good luck of them being playable in any other FUTURE storm Games. So this maybe the last chance, just sayin.

  • http://twitter.com/BEAST_4 Terrence Elkins

    First of all Kurenai and Anko and Shizune should be playable cause there just important as kakashi guy yamato and ASUMA!!!!…. Yall made asuma playable on storm 2. And to top it all of yall made 1st and 2nd hokage playable now how is that fair to Kurenai anko and shizune. 1st and 2nd were support types tooooooo… Yall should give those female joa chance….. it isnt fair T_T

  • cameroon roberts

    Are You kidding When Will i Finally Be Able to Play as Anko and Kurenai they are amazing 
     characters and we can’t play them… That’s Bull 

  • antuan linares
