Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker is a high-speed four vs. four multiplayer title that encourages cooperative play through the use of character-specific roles. Characters are split up into four roles: Attack, Ranged, Defense, and Heal. Teams that utilize these four types of characters will be formidable opponents on the battlefield.
Soleil, a subsidiary of Valhalla Game Studios, is developing the game. Weekly Shonen Jump magazine describes the game as an "acrobatic ninja battle" game. The game will have an online component, and players can form four-person cells in multiplayer to fight against another four-person cell for a total of eight players.
