We are less than a month away from the release of the Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 expansion, dubbed Road to Boruto, for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. While the February 3 release date may still seem so far away for people who pre-purchased the update, Bandai Namco has released a lengthy new trailer that will hopefully stave off the pangs of frustration – at the very least, it gives fans a glimpse of what they can expect by way of new content.
Based on the trailer, Road to Boruto will be adding new characters from the new generation of shinobi. It will also include versions of Boruto and Sarada with new movesets (the original playable Boruto and Sarada were preorder exclusives.) There’s also a bunch of new adventure/story mode content, and team-up jutsus.
It is worth noting that the Road to Boruto expansion will follow the same model as Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst, in the sense that owners of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 can buy it as a digital upgrade while those who don’t own the base game yet can buy it as a standalone release for full price (which will include the base game.) Keep in mind that the Road to Boruto digital upgrade is not part of the Season Pass for UNS4, so even if you have the deluxe edition or have bought the Season Pass, you still need to buy the expansion if you want new content.
