WATCH: 16 Minutes of Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker Action

During the recent Animation-Comic-Game Hong Kong 2017 event held in Hong Kong (duh), Bandai Namco previewed the upcoming 3D action brawler Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker via a meaty demo that features over 16 minutes of actual gameplay footage.

The video showcases some of the more notable features of the game—the 3-character fights with mobs, the expansive stages, the wall-running, and the appearance of giant characters, such as the gigantic frog Gamabunta and the even bigger one-tailed beast, Shuukaku. A huge chunk of the video features the player characters fighting Shukaku, which looks very, very impressive.

If the video got you all excited at the prospect of finally opening a can of whoopass on Gaara’s ornery tailed beast, you’re going to have to contend with the long wait, as Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker will be launching in early 2018 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.

On the other hand, the Legacy rereleases of the Ultimate Ninja Storm series will be available much earlier, so it’s not like you’re going to be left Naruto-less for a long period. And there’s the fact that the Road to Boruto expansion is still going strong (and has recently added 60 fps mode, so there is every reason to give it a lot of attention.)
