Naruto Generations: Masked Madara Confirmed Playable

A brand new scan from Shonen Jump of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations has been released! There was a rumor of Madara being playable, and well, that rumor is now confirmed!

It isn’t Madara Uchiha like we were hoping it to be, but instead the Serious Tobi (also known as Masked Madara). This is the iteration of Serious Tobi from 16 years ago when he fought Minato during Naruto’s birth. His inclusion makes perfect sense as the Naruto Shippuden anime will have a hour long episode with him this week! We’re pretty happy with him being confirmed, but we would have still liked the real Madara Uchiha. Oh well, maybe in Storm 3!

EDIT: Madara Uchiha is in the scan as well, at the bottom left. However, it looks like an animated cutscene from the Naruto anime/manga in which the story of Madara Uchiha vs the Hashirama (The First Hokage) was first told.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations is a 3D fighter in works by CyberConnect2 for the Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360.
