The legendary First Hokage (Hashirama Senju) along with his brother the Second Hokage (Tobirama Senju ) made their debut in the Storm series back in 2008 in Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm. However, they were only included as support characters, and fans were quite disappointed. In Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, the Hokages of the Hidden Leaf Village were nowhere to be found at all. Fans desired to control wood and water in the same ways the brother Hokages could.
Well, it looks like CyberConnect2 may once again be answering fan desires as rumor has it the First and Second Hokage will be playable in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations! The rumor comes from the reliable Tale Tale Source blog, which often correctly reveals the contents of the latest Shonen Jump issue. In other words, this weekend we may be getting the scan with the official revelation! Of course, we at Anime Games Online rely on pictorial or video proof when giving our final nod to whether a character will be confirmed playable, so again take this as rumor until the scan does come out!
