Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 – Road To Boruto Gets It’s Very First English-Dubbed Trailer

Naruto who? I have no idea who that is, but I think who you’re trying to talk about is the rambunctious young ninja Boruto, right? Yeah, Boruto, he’s destined to be the saviour of the ninja world. The one and only Boruto Uzumaki, who can compare? So Naruto is dead and gone…well, not literally, but time continues flowing ever forward and with that comes growth. Our old friend Naruto has had two children now with his beloved wife Hinata, and the oldest of the two, Boruto, reminds the old man a little too much of himself, but you know this don’t you? Of course! You’ve seen Boruto: Naruto The Movie, but you’ve yet to play the game, and that’s where things get tasty! On the horizon is the latest and greatest Naruto fighting game title; Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 – Road To Boruto. While this new title isn’t exactly a totally different game from the last, it IS a heavy expansion that follows the story of the aforementioned movie. This expansion was revealed …

Naruto SUN Storm 4 Expansion “Road To Boruto” Set To Hit The West February 2017

I’ve said this countless times but some things truly never die, and one of them just so happens to be Masashi Kishimoto’s Shonen great Naruto. Despite the fact that the Manga ended quite some time ago, and the Anime is on it’s way out, people can’t seem to get enough of Naruto, and I totally understand why; it’s a pretty damn good series, despite it’s tendency to become too much of itself, but only in later story arcs…somebody stop me before I inject more personal bias into this article. The latest Naruto video game to be released was Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, also known as Naruto SUN Storm 4. This game, like it’s predecessors, came packed to the rafters with newly-added characters, story arcs, gameplay developments, and superior graphics, but the one thing it was missing was something many fans of the series truly hoped would be featured; Boruto. Now, before you begin attacking me; Boruto and Sarada were indeed released as playable DLC characters later on in the game’s early life, but that …

Boruto: Naruto The Movie – Review

When it comes to a long-running series like Naruto, most reviews would begin with a brief history lesson; detailing it’s expansive lineage starting from 1999, but seeing as this movie marks the end of the series that started me on my personal journey to becoming what I am today and, hopefully, what I will be in the near future…I feel as though it deserves more than just a basic history lesson. Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto is the series that singlehandedly inspired me to want to both write comics and write about Japanese culture as a whole. It was the very first Manga I ever read, it was the first Anime I ever watched (knowing that it was indeed Anime), and it was the first piece of fiction to make me understand that we each live different lives that lead us in different directions, all of which are guided by our own choices. In the series, this was referred to as a “Ninja Way“, and I think that, without it, I would have never been able to …

Like Father, Like Son – Boruto and Naruto Clash in Short Film

To promote the release of a little upcoming film called Boruto: Naruto the Movie, Madman has teamed up with Deerstalker Pictures to provide the ready in waiting movie goers with a small taste of some ninja action. The original, live action short features the titular father-son duo undergoing a friendly little bout in the forest. Of course friendly does not dictate restraint, so the pair are more than willing to use some serious ninjutsu to secure victory. Okay, Boruto is, but if you expected Naruto to take it seriously then you should probably brush up on some episodes/chapters/films before catching the latest theatrical installment. The film proper will screen in select cinemas from October 15th-21st, which is a week for all the calendar fanatics out there. So check out the short film, check out the official site and then check out the film. It’s the most Boruto-centric to do list ever composed, believe it. -30-

Boruto: Naruto The Movie – Time To Meet The Next Generation Of Shinobi

Not half an hour before writing this article had I written another article regarding Boruto: Naruto The Movie and the official reveal of it’s antagonists. As any other fan of the series and of the upcoming movie, I believed this would be the most exciting piece of news to be revealed today…damn was I wrong. The very same issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump that only just revealed the identities of the film’s two antagonists also featured some very interesting and immeasurably thrilling images of the new generation of Ninja alongside their affiliations with one another. These new scans give readers a very nice look at some of the new kids, not just of Konohagakure but of the other, now-friendly villages from around the world of Naruto. Alongside Boruto, Sarada, and Mitsuki who’re the new Team 7 lead by none other than Naruto’s former small-time rival Konohamaru, come the rest of the kids set to feature as pretty heavy characters in the upcoming movie. From Kankuro’s son to the inappropriately-named Metal Lee, these news kids are looking even …

Boruto: Naruto The Movie’s Antagonists Finally Revealed

Basically, up until this point we’ve been given all the information about the upcoming Boruto movie that we need, apart from who the bad guys are…well today that’s exactly what has been revealed. I dont like to know too much about a film before going into it because, well…I want to actually enjoy the twists, turns, and shocks, I don’t want all that to be ruined by some pre-release promotional garbage. Thankfully, most things about Boruto: Naruto The Movie have been kept secret. Though I’m hoping we’re not given much more info than this: Momoshiki and Kinoshiki from the Otsutsuki Clan who will attack Konohagakura to attempt to extract Kurama (the Nine-Tails) out of Naruto and use him for their own evil deeds, much like countless Naruto enemies who came before them. This news, shown in Shueisha’s latest issue of Weekly Shonen Jump, also revealed who will voicing the two evil Shinobi: Hiroki Yasumoto will lend his gruff talents to Momoshiki and Daisuke Namikawa will lend his to Kinoshiki. Yasumoto you’d know from his work …

Latest Boruto: Naruto The Movie Trailer Shows The New Generation In Action

It’s on days like these that I’m truly thankful that, all those years ago, I was introduced to the Shonen majesty that is Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto. Despite my more recent disposition towards the ending of the Manga, there’s still a great deal of my heart that is warmed by a piece of new media such as the brand-new trailer for the upcoming film Boruto: Naruto The Movie. The official website for the new film was updated today to include a trailer that happens to feature footage from the movie that has yet to have been shown in previous trailers and teasers. Despite the trailer being entirely in Japanese, it doesn’t take much brain power to figure out just what it is that’s going on within it. The new footage will get you old-school Naruto fans fired up as it throws back to the vibe of series’ beginning with the introduction of the kids of the new generation. It’s also super exciting to see Boruto in Naruto’s old gear as well as him using a pair …

Check Out The New Team 7 In This Boruto: Naruto The Movie Magazine Scan

Yosh! The latest issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump has just hit shelves over in Japan and, with every weekly release, comes some awesome news about out favorite Shonen titles. This week, the pop culture world gets another great look at the upcoming film Boruto: Naruto The Movie. Now that our heroes (Naruto and his pals) have grown up, gotten married, and had kids, it’s up to the next generation of Shinobi to get strong enough to defend the village. It seems as though most of the characters from the original Naruto series all got together and started having children at the exact same time because most of their kids are now in the same class. In Boruto: Naruto The Movie, we will follow the new Team 7 which is now made up of Boruto who is Naruto and Hinata’s son, Sarada who is Sasuke and possibly Sakura’s daughter (read the Manga), and Mitsuki who looks oddly a great deal like the antagonist of The Last: Naruto The Movie. Whether or not there’s a connection …

The Godfather Of Shinobi – Masashi Kishimoto Announced As Guest For New York Comic Con

I cannot stress this enough but…Naruto will simply never die! I know for a fact that I’ve written many articles in the recent past regarding the series and most of those articles start in, more or less, the same way. I usually talk about how Naruto, despite the main storyline Manga being finished and the Anime being on it’s way out, is still one of the most popular Shonen series’ of all time. This time around…I’m not going to worry about explaining that because, let’s be honest; if you don’t already know this by now than you’re simply not as big a Naruto fan than you think you are. We just saw the Western release of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump’s latest issue, which is published by Viz Media outside of Japan, and within the new edition comes a nice piece of news that sees the creator of Naruto, Masashi Kishimoto himself, taking a trip out to North America for the New York Comic Con festivities. Yes, you read correctly! Masashi Kishimoto has just been announced to be …

Kakashi’s Face Finally Revealed And It’s Just As Handsome As We Thought!

The day has finally come. It has finally come! Surely this means the apocalypse is on the horizon because I never imagined we’d ever see this. Ever! If the title of the article didn’t already give it away, allow me to catch you up to speed: Naruto is a very popular Shonen Anime and Manga that has only recently finished. Wait, no, the Anime is still going…it’s the Manga that’s finished! Wait, no, another Manga series just started, it’s the long line of Naruto movies that have finally finished! Wait, no, there’s actually still one more movie to be released. Has Naruto not ended? Because it just kind of sounds like Naruto still hasn’t ended! Anyway, that’s besides the point right now. Kakashi Hatake is a character who’s been in the series ever since the first few chapters. He was the man that trained the titular character alongside two of his close friends/enemies and basically made him what he is today: The saviour of the known world. Yes, there were a few mentor-types in between that …

Madman Entertainment Releases First Trailer For Boruto: Naruto The Movie

I’m not sure how many times it is that I’ve said this but; Naruto is somehow so much more popular now that the Manga has officially finished than it ever was. That’s not to say that the series had a low popularity level, what I’m saying is that no matter how loved you thought the series was during it’s run…it’s so much more loved now. This much I can guarantee. Madman Entertainment, one of Australia’s leading Anime and Manga publishers, has always been on the bleeding edge of the world of Japanese pop culture and that’s why, for the last few years, it has been them who have been releasing most, if not all, Naruto media items. Manga and Anime, Madman have got it covered, which has always been awesome but the publisher has now got even more awesome by releasing the very first trailer for Boruto: Naruto The Movie and announcing that they will be bringing it to Australian cinemas sometime this year. No, you didn’t read that wrong. So not only have they …
