A brand new scan of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Impact has been released! This scan focuses on the playable characters in the game, revealing 22 of them in what looks to be a character selection type of box. Raikage, the 23rd character in the scan, for some reason is on his own on the left side as a character art. He is playable, as can be seen in the screenshot within the scan. Another odd exclusion is of Sasuke (Chidori Spear) who was confirmed via a trailer back in June.
Also, you’ll notice there is a space for two more characters in the characters box. If the hacked demo was any indication, those last two slots are for Minato and Madara/Tobi! Of course the hacked demo could have been wrong, so lets wait for the Shonen Jump or Namco Bandai official word! However, we will say this – the individual pictures used for the characters in the scan and hacked demo are all almost exactly the same!
