Naruto Generations: Kimimaro Playable, Sound 4 Support Only

Fellow fans, there have been many fantastic things revealed about Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations, including the inclusion of Tailed Beast Chakra Mode Naruto, an enhanced online mode, and over an hour of original anime content! However, the latest news from Namco Bandai Games will make many disappointed, maybe even angry. The Sound 4 – Tayuya, Jirobo, Sakon, and Kidomaru – have been confirmed to be support only. We at Anime Games Online are pretty shocked by the news ourselves since fans have consistently asked for these characters. Our fingers are crossed though that somehow their playable status changes, but for now they are confirmed as support only.

On the bright side, the Sound Village’s Kimimaro is playable! Check out the new art and screenshots for Kimimaro, Tayuya, Jirobo, Sakon, and Kidomaru.
