This year’s 41st issue of Shueisha‘s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is revealing on Monday that Bandai Namco Entertainment will release an update for its Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 game titled Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Road to Boruto. The update will be available as a physical copy as well as a DLC update for the game, and the package edition will ship on February 2 for 6,800 yen (about US$66). Although the game has PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions, the magazine lists only a PS4 version for the update. The announcement doesn’t give a price for the DLC content only.
The first-print limited edition of the physical game bundle will include a soundtrack for both the original game and the update, as well as a reversible box cover. The update will allow players to play through the story of the Boruto manga. Those who attend Tokyo Game Show 2016 later this month will be able to play a demo of Sasuke vs. Kinshiki, which appeared in Boruto -Naruto the Movie-.
The characters Boruto and Sarada — the stars of Boruto -Naruto the Movie- — are already included in the game as playable characters.
Bandai Namco Entertainment released the game in Japan on February 4, in Europe on February 5, and in North America on February 9. In Japan the game is available only on the PS4, while in the West it is available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The game features the largest number of fighters in the series history. That roster includes characters from the fight between Hashirama and Madara, as well as characters from The Last -Naruto the Movie-. The game also recreates the Shinobi World War.
The game’s adventure mode allows players to freely explore Konoha and Suna villages and perform missions. Meeting character trigger events, and the mode includes multiple conversation scenes with other characters. The game’s online mode allows players to match up against each other, and also has limited time events that every player can participate in.
