Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker is planned as the next Naruto game following the ending of the Ultimate Ninja Storm series. It was reported that Shinobi Striker will separate itself from Ninja Storm as the upcoming game has a new developer and a totally new graphics style. As a result, fans would like to see more playable characters from the latest Boruto series.
Reports said that the previous Road to Boruto DLC disappointed the majority of the players as it only offered Boruto and his friends as well as the adult versions of Naruto, Sakura, Sasuke and Gaara. Meanwhile, new characters such as Metal Lee and Shikadai is not playable even if the two can be fought in the story. Additionally, adult versions of Rock Lee and Sai cannot also be played despite debuting in the game's story mode.
On the other hand, Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker confirms the usual characters Naruto, Sakura, Sasuke and Kakashi. Several Akatsuki members will also arrive along with the original team seven characters. However, it appears that there are no major revelations as of the moment. Given that the game bears the name of Naruto to Boruto, it suggests that players will see more action from Naruto's son.
While Bandai Namco failed to put some cherry on top to the final expansion pack of Ninja Storm 4, players are still hoping that the upcoming game will feature more Boruto characters such as Metal Lee and Shikadai. Furthermore, a grown up version of Konohamaru would also be appreciated.
Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker does not have an official release date as of now. That means Bandai Namco has lots of time to add more new characters to the game. In addition, the upcoming game should avoid featuring many versions of Naruto and Sasuke to avoid a dull roster lineup.
Nonetheless, the game is expected to arrive on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
