Word on the street is Kabutomaru will be playable in Naruto Generations. That’s Kabuto Yakushi after he injected himself with Orochimaru’s cells (also fan labeled as Kabuchimaru, among other things). We first heard it when CyberConnect2 hinted at the possibility, but confirmation is now literally just a scan away! The rumor comes from the reliable Japanese blog TaleTaleSource, which often correctly reveals the contents of up-coming issues of Shonen Jump.
The rumor is Kabutomaru, along with being playable, will be armed with the ability to use the Summoning: Impure World Resurrection technique (Edo Tensei). No information is given on what summons he will have at his disposal, but the prospects could be very exciting!
If we understood correctly, TaleTaleSource also mentions the up-coming scan will have the Five Kage shown with their ultimate jutsus. That doesn’t seem like anything new, but we’ll have to wait and see what the potential scan actually says.
As always Anime Games Online considers information like this a rumor so please wait until the scan has been released to call it official! If history is any indication though, it’s likely we will get our confirmation this weekend, if not today! Especially since the One Piece scan is already out!
