Anko, Kurenai, Shizune, Tayuya, Kidomaru, Jirobo, Sakon, Fu, Torune, Darui, Cee, Akatsuchi, Kurotsuchi, Ao, and Chojuro – these are all the support-only characters in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations (Naruto Generations). We’re sure many of you wanted to play with these, well, now you can!
Anime Games Online’s THE BASEDGOD has discovered a glitch in the game and has shared how you can take advantage of it to play as one of the support-only characters. The first video below shows how you can do it, while the second video shows 14 of the 15 support-only characters in action.
Some of the characters have their own ninja tools which may suggest CyberConnect2 at least thought of putting them in as official playable characters. They aren’t fluid, but instead look a bit ridged in their movements. It’s possible CyberConnect2 ran out of development time or just placed them in as a test for Storm 3, Anime Games Online doesn’t know for sure. What we do know is you can enjoy them, in at least a limited capacity, by checking out the videos below and trying it out yourself!
Steps to play as a support-only character
1. Go to Free Battle
2. Then go to VS Battle
3. Do 1P Vs 2P: Choose any character and any support and finish the match
4. Return to Free Battle Mode
5. Go to Training
6. Select Team Match: If you do this right the CPU cursor will follow the 1P cursor
7. Go down to the support only slot and press B (or Circle for PS3)
8. Then choose random supports
9. If you see Naruto on the screen without support then you have done it correctly!
