Naruto Generations: Character Selection Screen Revealedon February 3, 2012 at 12:41 PM
A new photo for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations has been released and it unveils the character selection screen! As you can see there are 85 characters on the screen. The way they’ve included them make it looks like they are playable characters, but based on the information we have received thus far, characters from rows 9 and 10 are support only.
It’s unconfirmed if this is the final character roster just yet. Reason is, excluding the support, we see 70 characters. Namco Bandai Games America revealed there will be 75 playable characters.
If you ask us, we’re on the fence on whether this is the final roster or not. Why? Because we see 4 versions of Sasuke, when 5 have been confirmed by Namco Bandai (Susano, Akatsuki, Chidori Spear, Kirin, and Part 1). We’re also pretty sure there is a version of Naruto that can use the Nine-Tailed Rasengan and Rasenshuriken, similar to Storm 2. With that there are 72 playable characters. We wonder if there are 3 more hidden characters like that. At the same time, we see rows 5 and 6 both have an empty space and wonder if each could be filled in with another character in the final build of the game. Whichever the case, we have a strong feeling serious Tobi will be in the game alongside of goofy Tobi. Of course, we’re just hypothesizing here.
What we do know for sure is the characters on the screen in the image above. They are listed in order from left to right, by row. Are you happy with this roster?
