    Game keeps getting better and better! AND if you look at the two silhouettes at the bottom left, both Toguro and Aizen are practically confirmed as well! I’m so importing the shit outta this (though it won’t be at launch though, far too many localized stuff coming in FEB/Mar)!

    • Gariya

      Oh, that’s Toguro. I thought it was some wrestler from Kinnikuman.

      • Anime10121

        Yep thats 100% Toguro, now the other I’d say I’m about 95% sure is Aizen.

  • LeBronista

    Uchiha* Madara

  • Coloso90909

    It’s Uchiha lol.

  • Bobby Jennings

    I think he put it there purposely xD. Madara Uchiwa.

    Look at Kakashi and Sakura!

  • Samsara09

    This game is massively broken,lol.Epic!

  • Raiyu

    Also looks like two new character reveals for the 21st? Considering they might be villains, I’m pretty sure one of the silhouettes is Sosuke Aizen from Bleach, not sure about the other one. I think it’s Younger Toguro from Yuyu Hakusho?

    We wondered where are the villains are and here they are.

      They always come last.

      • kirby755

        villains always show up fashionably late. XD

  • refrain

    So, where is Hisoka? If I remembered right, last time they teased that they’ll reveal Hisoka next

    • unleashrage

      He will be revealed next week along with Aizen and Younger Toguro :)

  • Surgeon of Death

    Madara Uchiwa………………………………..Seems legit.

  • Paul Rodriguez

    I don’t know if it was a mistake or a joke, but in Naruto Uchiha is kind of a play on Uchiwa (or another way of pronouncing it). Uchiwa is a type of Japanese fan that was used to fan flames. Which also happens to be the shape of the Uchiha symbol and fire is one of their main elements.

  • Archvile

    I’m glad to see Shishio in the game!

  • Dokuro

    Where’s Hisoka??

    • unleashrage

      next week he will be revealed.

      • Dokuro

        I hope so =/

  • Budgiecat

    Still avoiding the most obvious of characters (Kenshiro)

    • kirby755

      Your making me want to cry about that. Where is the Hokuto Shinken at!

      • Budgiecat

        Maybe he’s pulling a Musou Tensei…..

    • Skerj

      Let’s all pretend that they’re saving the best for last.

  • Kobracon

    Wow there are alot of characters so far….unless these 4 are just support characters

  • Anime10121

    Welp, for all those wondering who those silhouettes belonged to, and where Hisoka’s been hanging since his silhouette was teased….
