posted on by Kyle Hallmark
Bandai Namco Entertainment began streaming a video on Sunday featuring CyberConnect2's president Hiroshi Matsuyama discussing the upcoming Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 (Naruto Shippūden Narutimate Storm 4) PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC game.
In the video, Matsuyama discusses topics such as the game's battle animation, the characters' facial expressions, new mechanics involving elemental ninjutsu effects, the game's story mode, and cut scene animation.
Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 will feature 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 will also recreate the Shinobi World War.
The game's adventure mode will allow players to freely explore Konoha and Suna villages and perform missions. Meeting characters will trigger events, and the mode will include multiple conversation scenes with other characters. The game's online mode will allow players to match up against each other, and will also have limited time events that every player can participate in.
Those who buy the game in Japan on its initial release (or pre-order the game in America and Europe) will receive Boruto and Sarada — the stars of Boruto -Naruto the Movie- — as playable characters. The initial release will also include Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, and Hinata as they appear in The Last -Naruto the Movie- as playable characters, as well as a costume for Kakashi.
Bandai Namco Entertainment is releasing the game in Japan on February 4, in Europe on February 5, and in North America on February 9. In Japan the game will be available on PlayStation 4, while in the West it will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Bandai Namco Games Europe will offer a collector's edition of the PS4 and Xbox One versions with an artbook, 17 cm Naruto figure, collector's box, metal plate, and "FuturePack."
