Naruto Generations fans, you’ve been asking for him and CyberConnect2 is delivering! A brand new scan from Shonen Jump confirms Kabutomaru as a playable character! Also fan labeled as Kabuchimaru, among other things, this is the version of Kabuto Yakushi after he injected himself with Orochimaru’s cells. More specifically, it’s Kabuto with the power to use the Summoning: Impure World Resurrection technique (Edo Tensei)! Is that Kakuzu, Itachi, and Deidara we see? YOSH!
Note: Kabutomaru is not the official name, it’s just a name made up by fans we use to differentiate from normal Kabuto.
