posted on by Karen Ressler
Bandai Namco Entertainment confirmed before this week's Tokyo Game Show that it will release the Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Road to Boruto expansion for the Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 game with 13 languages options for the PlayStation 4, PC via Steam, and Xbox One. The release will have four dubbed voice tracks — Japanese, English, Brazilian Portuguese, and Spanish — as well as multiple subtitle options such as English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese. Russian, Traditional Chinese, Korean, and Arabic.
Viz Media released Boruto: Naruto the Movie with English subtitles in American theaters, but it has yet to release an English dub or announce the cast for the new characters such as Boruto himself.
The packaged box release for Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Road to Boruto will include Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 itself, all previous DLC content, and the new expansion for US$49.99 or 49.99 Euros. The expansion by itself will cost US$19.99.
Bandai Namco Entertainment America briefly listed the expansion's American release on Monday. That page, which is no longer online, listed a February 3 release date for the American release, the same day European release.
The Japanese version of the expansion will only be available for the PS4. The Road to Boruto expansion in Japan will be offered in a physical release, a digital download release, and a DLC expansion release. The physical and download release will contain the full Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 game, including all the previous three DLC releases for the main game, as well as the Road to Boruto expansion. The DLC expansion release is intended for players who already own the original game, and only wish to get the content of the new expansion. Players of all versions will be able to transfer their save files to the new expansion.
All releases in Japan will also include a first-print limited edition downloadable soundtrack for both the original game and the expansion, downloadable from February 2 to March 1. The physical release of the expansion will have a reversible box cover.
All versions are slated for a February 2 release in Japan. The physical and digital download release will cost 6,800 yen (about US$66), while the DLC expansion only will cost 2,411 yen (about US$23).
The expansion will allow players to play through the story of the Boruto manga and Boruto: Naruto the Movie, including the Sasuke vs. Kinshiki fight, and players will also be able to explore new areas of the Hidden Leaf Villiage. Those who attend Tokyo Game Show 2016 from September 15-18 will be able to play a demo of Sasuke vs. Kinshiki.
Update: Trailer added.
