For a long time now, movie and television series related franchises have always been on the mediocre side except for some like Naruto Shippuden games.
The upcoming game Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm which is coming to Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC is confirmed to have not just the usual characters but their versions from the last released Naruto movie. Japanese anime series are around in plenty but among them all, Naruto has gained a special place that has propelled it to success.
The long running series has also paved way for multiple movies as well as video games, all of them being successful in their own respect. The title captures all the action and the cartoon like narrative style found in the series which has led to the success besides the inclusion of fight mechanics that is on par with Tekken among other popular console titles. The good news is that it is coming to PC as well.
Movie Based Characters are Playable
Players will be able to take control of the versions of Naruto, Sakura, Hinata and Sasuke who appeared in the last Naruto movie in the upcoming title, the Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4. The news was confirmed by the latest update on a magazine named the Jump.
The magazine also published images of the characters from the movie and all of them look quite different than their previous childish avatars. For people who have already watched the movie, these versions might be really familiar. But, for those who are in different regions where the flick didn’t get released, this is something new and being able to play with them is going to be an experience that most would enjoy.
The movie premise: The Naruto movie is set two years after the Manga series ends because of which the characters are grown up and feature a more mature appearance. The magazine didn’t confirm whether these characters will feature any special powers when compared to the conventional versions in the game. The game is getting launched on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC this year.
The title is under development by Cyber Connect 2 studios. They were the studio who worked on all the video game versions of the television series and have done a good job so far. You could check out the new character images online and drop in your comments.
