A brand new scan of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations has been released! It confirms Danzo Shimura and the Third Hokage, Hiruzen Sarutobi as playable characters! Danzo is making his first appearance in a Storm game and as you can see, his arm is full of Sharingans! While we don’t know how they will be utilized in the game, our guess is they will be either part of his awakening or ultimate jutsu, if not both. Hiruzen was last seen in Ultimate Ninja Storm 1, but he seems to be the exact same based on the scan. Additionally, if you look at the image within the san, Torune and Fu have been confirmed as support characters! CyberConnect2 has stated the game will contain some characters that are support only, so our guess is that is all they will remain as.
In the image at the bottom of the scan Naruto is hitting pain with a Rasengan. If you take notice, above Pain’s health bar is the Internet connectivity icon meaning that screenshot is of the game being played online.
