Naruto Impact Demo Has 4 Secret Characters

Posted on August 6, 2011

Earlier this month, the demo for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Impact was released. We knew there were six playable characters – Lee, Guy, Gaara, Kakashi, Sakura, and Naruto. Well, some how, fans have found four additional secret or hidden characters to be in the demo. Those characters are Shikamaru, Jiraiya, Pain, and Sage Naruto. Those four characters will be playable in the final version of the game, it’s just surprising that developer CyberConnect2 had them hidden in the demo. Accessing these four characters sounds pretty troublesome, and Anime Games Online doesn’t recommend that you try to unlock them, but for those that are really interested there are some instructions in YouTube user PRO4PSP’s video description. For those that just want to watch a video of Shikamaru, Jiraiya, Pain, and Sage Naruto in action, check out the video below. If you see the fan typing stuff into his PSP, he’s trying to unlock the characters. The first footage of actual gameplay (and final jutsus) starts 2:10 into the video.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Impact is an action/fighter under development by CyberConnect 2 for the Sony PSP. It will feature over 50 characters (around 26 of which are playable), co-op play, boss battles, 1-on-1 fighting, and 1-vs-100 action. Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Impact is scheduled for release by publisher Namco Bandai Games in in North America on October 18th, Japan on October 20th and Europe on October 21st.
