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.

However, one thing that most fans would never expect is for a Mario game to take place in a realistic depiction of our world, much less something as ...
