A couple of days ago, we posted news about a new Naruto/Boruto (should we just refer to it as Noruto for simplicity’s sake?) game for Japanese PS4s, Xbox Ones, and PCs called Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker, and made summations regarding a Western release being planned. Now, Bandai Namco has gone ahead and confirmed a release of the game for Western fans via an announcement, which includes a description of the game.
The description doesn’t tell anything outside of things that fans have already surmised based on the trailer, but it helps confirm a few things such as support for 4 v 4 fights and support for online play, in both PvP and co-op modes:
In NARUTO TO BORUTO: SHINOBI STRIKER, players go head-to-head in 4 vs. 4 battles, with all eight ninjas fighting simultaneously. NARUTO TO BORUTO: SHINOBI STRIKER features beloved Naruto characters and teams from the series, including Naruto, Sasuke, and Team 7. The game showcases a brand-new graphic style with vivid colors and dynamic third-person ninja gameplay that enables players to take advantage of the verticality of the arena environment with vertical running and jumping to elevated areas. Players can also choose to play co-op with friends and lead teams to victory to be the top ninjas online.
…and in case you missed it the first time around, here’s the announcement trailer full of juicy, shinobi-tastic gameplay footages:
