In addition to tweaks and battle mechanics it will have characters from Part I, with the addition of these characters, the staff comments the game will have a wider variety of battles than the previous game, Producer Yusuke Sasaki stated the staff wanted to give combat a greater focus than its prequels. The term "Generations" stands for "the ultimate ninja battle that crosses generations".
