Great news Naruto gaming fans! Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations will have characters from the 4th Great Ninja War! On Twitter, Naruto Generations fan ShogunDarius asked CyberConnect2 if the game will cover the 4th Great Ninja War. CyberConnect2 responded that the game will focus on fighting, but characters from the war will be in the game!
Our understanding from that is there will be no story element covering the war, but of course we could be wrong. As for the characters, what characters exactly? At this point we don’t know, but we’re pretty sure many, if not all, of the reveals will come through Shonen Jump. Technically speaking, the war starts as soon as Madara declares it in Naruto Shippuden episode 205, “Declaration of War”. That means, just like in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Impact for the PSP, characters from the war could only be Susanoo Sasuke, Madara, and the five Kage. That is of course, in addition to five Kage guards who we’ve seen as support as well as Haku and Zabuza who are confirmed playable. However, we at Anime Games Online are very hopeful “characters from the war” extends beyond just that. After all, this is CyberConnect2, the fans developer! Once more information breaks, we hope to have it for you!
