Bandai Namco will re-release all four Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm games on the PC, PS4, Xbox One in a Legacy collection
Bandai Namco is bringing back the Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm series in a brand new compilation that’ll be available for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One later this year.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Legacy will include Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst, all of which were originally released for the PS3 and Xbox 360 between 2008 and 2013. The package will also include a second disc containing Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Road to Boruto, which was released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One earlier this year.
“Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Legacy is the perfect starting point for new fans discovering the popular series and dedicated fans who want to experience their favorite Naruto stories again on PS4, Xbox One, or Steam,” said Eric Hartness, the Vice President of Marketing at Bandai Namco Entertainment America. “Throughout the Naruto Storm series of games, CyberConnect2 has crafted groundbreaking Naruto experiences that any newbie, ninja, Hokage, or anime fan will love playing again and again.”
In addition to giving fans all four games in the Ultimate Ninja Storm series, the Legacy collection will feature a batch of bonus goodies including a Naruto artbook, a Naruto anime disc, and a Steelbook case.
A handful of new games have been added to the Xbox Games Store today… and one is a theatrical “swamp noir” and another is an anime-inspired fighting game.
Developed by Prologue Games, Knee Deep is a murder mystery set in the backwater Florida town of Cypress Knee, and it offers players a Telltale-like adventure game driven by dialogue choices and multiple quirky characters.
Also available this week is Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 – Road to Boruto, an expanded re-release of the fighting game that includes all of the downloadable content packs, as well as a brand new adventure focusing on Naruto’s son.
More information on both of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. (more…)
This week’s PlayStation Store update appears to be brought to you by the letter D…
Koei Tecmo starts things off with the launch of Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers, a new tactical RPG in the long-running series. Available to download now for the PS4 and Vita, Godseekers depicts the “chaotic end days of the Han dynasty,” which is “a period in Chinese history when ancient China was overwhelmed by uprisings and internal strife within its imperial court.”
From ancient China to post-apocalyptic Japan comes Double Dragon IV, the first new entry in the franchise created by the original development team in more than a decade. Billy and Jimmy, the Lee Brothers, make their PS4 debut in a retro-styled side-scroller that serves as a direct sequel to Double Dragon II: The Revenge. The slightly-less-apocalyptic landscape of Florida serves as the setting for Knee Deep, a PS4 adventure game that uses a theatrical style to engage the audience with its murder mystery.
Finally this week, a pair of anime adaptations will be released for the PS4 including Digimon World: Next Order and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 – Road to Boruto.
More information on all of these games can be found after the break. (more…)
New Retail Releases: Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World, Hitman Season One, Digimon World Next Order, More
Yarn Yoshi is is back, and as adorable as ever, in Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World for the 3DS. Nintendo will re-release the side-scrolling platformer for the 3DS this week, and players can expect to find the complete Wii U experience along with new levels starring Yoshi’s pal Poochy.
Another re-release will also be available on store shelves this week as Square Enix will collect Hitman‘s “Complete First Season” in a retail package for the PS4 and Xbox One. In addition to all of Agent 47’s previously-released missions, Hitman: The Complete First Season will also include a trio of bonus missions and the Requiem Blood Money Pack, which includes “the signature Blood Money White Suit, White Rubber Duck, and Chrome ICA Pistol.”
Switching gears entirely, anime fans will find a pair of new games on stores including Digimon World: Next Order for the PS4 and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 – Road to Boruto for the PS4 and Xbox One.
Finally this week, 505 Games and Giant Squid will bring the oceanic exploration of Abzu to the PS4 and Xbox One. Originally released through the PlayStation Store and Xbox Games Store in August, this retail re-release will give the public a second chance to check it out.
That’s it for now, but we’ll be back later this week with a look at the latest digital releases on the PlayStation Store, Xbox Games Store, and Nintendo eShop.
It’s time to listen to the mastodon roar as Ubisoft’s Far Cry: Primal was declared the best-selling game of February 2016 by The NPD Group. Proving that players might be in the market for more titles that feature pre-modern warfare, Far Cry: Primal beat out Call of Duty: Black Ops III, which took the #2 slot.
Several other new releases broke into the top ten last month, including Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 at #4 and Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright at #9. But the most surprising result might be the less-than-stellar debut of Capcom’s Street Fighter V. Even after a big push from Sony, the much-hyped fighting game was only able to punch its way to #7.
Sales of new PS3 and Xbox 360 games continued to drop last month, and total retail spending on new games slipped 10% from February 2015. Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, NPD’s Liam Callahan said: “New physical software trends suffered due to a sharp decline in seventh generation consoles of 52% despite the 14% (or $28 million growth) in eighth generation software. Portable software also had a drop of 30% due to a poor comparison to the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D, which coincided with the launch of the New 3DS.”
