New Naruto Game Announced, Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker


Whether you liked the Road to Boruto expansion for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 or not, one can’t help but feel sad that it was initially believed to be the last game in the franchise. Of course, people held hope (buoyed by the fact that the franchise is way too lucrative to be let go that easily, one only needs to look at all the Dragon Ball Z games that were made years after the franchise first closed its doors.)

Case in point, a new Naruto game was announced for the PS4 in Japan this week, titled Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker. What’s even better than the announcement is the follow up announcement that it’s also going to make its way to the West via the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. There’s a video trailer available that reveals a few key details about the game, namely that it supports 4-man team battles (for a total of 8-man battles), it uses arenas (or stages!) that are way bigger than the Ultimate Ninja Storm games ever had, it has a new visual style, and that there’s an emphasis on online play.

It’s too early to say but it does look like it’s either a modern take on the Uzumaki Chronicles games from the Playstation 2 or a Naruto-themed Arena Fighter in the same vein as the Gundam VS games. Either way, the fact that it’s a Naruto game has us excited and we’ll be keeping a close watch on this.

The following two tabs change content below.
