Naruto Storm 3: Mid-Combo Awakening, Playable Darui Confirmed

There was a rumor going around that Darui was playable in Naruto Storm 3. Fans of the Black Lightning user, great news, the rumor is true, Darui has been confirmed playable in Naruto Storm 3! The confirmation comes via Anime Games Online’s favorite magazine, Shonen Jump!

In addition to Darui is the confirmation of mid-combo awakenings! Start an attack and awaken in the midst of it to unleash a fury of even more powerful blows onto your opponent! This can be seen in the scan screenshots with Naruto against Bee. He is throwing a punch and then goes Tailed Beast Chakra Mode. Oh yes, Bee is confirmed playable and so is Sasuke!

Thanks to M the Yondaime!
