The scan from yesterday had Naruto, Sasuke, Pain, and Masked Madara (or Serious Tobi, if you prefer).
Fans wondered what the significance of those characters were. Well, CyberConnect2 has revealed that the January 24th Japanese demo will feature Naruto taking on Sasuke, Pain, and Masked Madara!
Now, recall the story mode from Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations will be told from the perspective of different characters. Some of those characters who will have the story focused on them include Naruto, Sasuke, Minato, Kakashi, and, Itachi. From our understanding, Namco Bandai has revealed the demo – featuring fights of Naruto vs Sasuke, Pain, and Masked Madara – will be focusing a bit on Naruto’s side of the story. The story in the game will be told through cutscenes by Studio Pierrot (the animation house behind Naruto) and by fighting. CyberConnect2 has mentioned the demo will have the opening animation to Naruto’s story.
