Posted on December 17, 2011

The world famous mangaka of Naruto, Masashi Kishimoto, was on stage at Jump Festa 2012 near the great city of Tokyo, Japan. Naruto Generations developer CyberConnect2 was there to provide a little coverage on Kishimoto’s appearance. They mention Kishimoto showcased his skills by showing the live audience how he draws a manga. Additionally, there was a question and answer session between Kishimoto and the Naruto voice actors.

Question: What would you change about the Naruto series if you could go back?
Answer: I would draw Kakashi without his mask. Fans expectations have gotten so high that now if I were to draw his face, they would get disappointed *laugh*

Question: When did you decide to have Naruto and Sasuke go on different ninja paths?
Answer: From the beginning.

Question: What is going to happen to Sasuke next year?
Answer: There is still much story behind Sasuke. His appearance will be more frequent next year.

Question: Which character do you want to play as in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations?
Answer: Sasuke

It’s possible there may be more to the question and answer session, but this is what CC2 had on their Twitter account. If more information surfaces, we hope to have it for you!
