Shortly after announcing a remastered compilation of the four Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm games, Bandai Namco has also confirmed that Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker is currently in development for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
As you might have guessed, Naruto to Boruto follows the “next generation” of ninjas from the anime, and it gives players the chance to compete in 4v4 online battles:
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.
“We’re delighted to work with Soleil on the newest installment to the Naruto series, taking the popular franchise to literal new heights as players utilize the vertical plane to gain advantages in battles with friends. Long-time fans and Naruto newbies are sure to enjoy the intense arena combat together,” said Eric Hartness, the Vice President of Marketing at Bandai Namco Entertainment America. “Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker is a fresh take on the iconic anime series, and puts all players and characters into the fight.”
Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker is being developed by Soleil and will be available “soon.”
