So much so that when they are selected for free battle mode, there is a pre-made organization for all of them based on alignment, arc, and which part of the story they’re from.

Everyone Throughout the History of the Series is Here

When you start your game and go into free battle mode, you have access to the entire roster of the game from the start. This also includes the newest additions to the roster. Because of this, much of the content and repetitive play for the rest of the game is devoted to unlocking costumes and customization options that include masks or items on the character’s back.

There is also the in-game currency for unlocking special figures and finisher images that represent pivotal parts of the anime series.

Outfit variations are mostly unlocked as you progress through history mode. Several examples of these include Sasuke’s Chunin Exam outfit and Gaara’s original outfit from Part 1. Customization options are also unlocked through history mode and Boruto’s unique story on how well you complete the chapters.

The higher your ranking the more rewards for those specific levels you’ll get. Aside from playing levels in history mode, there are also special outfits for characters that are either DLC purchases or a part of the pre-order bonuses.
