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 …

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 – Review

There are stories, and then there are shonen stories. For the most part, they’re longer, follow a sharper upward spiral when it comes to the evolution of power and when the end finally rolls around the fanbase is pretty well divided on, well, pretty much everything. But therein lies their confusing charm. After years upon decades upon childhoods, these tale weave their way into the minds of youth until they are a defining factor. Convoluted in their straightforwardness, they present the quearies of life in an easy to identify, easy to punch form that delves into the meaning of meaning and the reason for reasons. Of course, you could simply ignore that and enjoy the ever present combat, but let’s not. Let us explore one of these well trodden tales a little bit more, let us once again witness the story of Naruto Uzumaki, the ninja who never quit…and also for some reason decided that bright orange would be the perfect jumpsuit colour for a life long career in the ninja arts. Okay, so I’m not …

All Six Paths Lead To Demise – Madara Confirmed As Playable Character For Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4

There’s nothing better than a good video game, and every good video game always comes with an exciting and brutally powerful bad guy thrown into the mix to put the hero to the test. Originally it was Orochimaru who posses the biggest threat to our outrageous Shinobi hero Naruto…but that was some time ago. Massage Kishimoto, the creator of the series, kicked the snake man to the curb a long time ago and since then the spot of all-powerful antagonist has been filled by countless men and women all of which have fallen victim to the might of the ninja world’s greatest warrior. One of the final villains of the series, a man called Madara Uchiha, really made Naruto work for his heroic title and, if you ask me…he almost succeeded in his plan of utter world domination. Too bad the power of a Shonen hero is far too much for any bad guy to handle. Well Mr. Madara Uchiha being such a good bad guy, it’s only natural that he would appear in the …

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 – First Look At Obito Uchiha 

Be honest; how well do you know Obito Uchiha? My guess is…not that well, which is fine because nobody knows him all that well. It’s kind of part of his charm as a bad guy. The problem with mystery is that, for the quizzical types like you and I, not knowing something about a character can be like a living hell! A week or so ago when Bandai Namco Games revealed that a gruesome Obito Uchiha fused with the plant man Zetsu would appear as a playable character in the upcoming fighting game Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4. I found myself somewhat excited but also somewhat confused: What the hell will this guy be like to use? Will he fight like an Uchiha? Will he fight like a plant…man? I have no idea! Bandai Namco Games have today released a handful of screenshots alongside a nice character model of the new fighter that dont necessarily divulge any real information but they do show us what he’s going to be like in the game, which …

Obito Uchiha Revealed As Playable Character For Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4

With any new fighting video game release comes some brand-new combatants to choose and throw down with. It’s exponentially more exciting when the fighting game series in question has been going on for many years and is based off of a series that has more unique characters than I’ve had hot meals. I bought my very first console with my own money thanks to the original Naruto Ultimate Ninja which had me captivated at first glance and despite my dislike for what Naruto has become I still find myself getting excited for every new release of the series so, as you can imagine, talk of Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 still gets me just as excited as it always has. Bandai Namco Games have been slowly but surely unveiling some of the upcoming game’s new characters and combat systems, and thanks to the latest issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump it has been revealed that Obito Uchiha will indeed feature as a playable character. We’ve seen him in the past as Tobi and even further in …

Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Release Date Accidentally leaked By Microsoft

Oh I absolutely love when things like this happen. True or false, fact or fiction, real or otherwise, I simply love when a big company like Microsoft fumbles just a little bit and releases certain pieces of information early. It’s happened once again; this time the upcoming Bandai Namco Games title Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 has gotten it’s release date leaked early by Microsoft who have made the game available to pre-order online. Hitting up the Microsoft Store and going for a bit of a wander trying to find the game will eventually bring you to a page that’ll tell you all the usual stuff; price, console, rating and, event though it hasn’t been officially announced…the release date. Yes indeed, it seems as though the Microsoft Store has provided the pop culture world with a little too much information, and it comes in the form of an unofficial release date. I say unofficial because, well, in this day and age it’s hard to tell what’s real and what’s not. Because of how simply a …

New Trailers Released For Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, Pirate Warriors 3 and J-Stars Victory Vs+

Bandai Namco Games have done something a little crazy today; they’ve gone ahead and released a whole bunch of information and assets regarding a few of their top upcoming titles all at once which, for people like me who’s job it is to report on this news, has me in a bit of a frantic state. Somewhat because I have to write up this news and somewhat because I’m very much excited about the new trailers that have just been released. While I could’ve done three seperate articles for these new videos, I decided against it because, well, they all actually have something in common that isn’t just that they’re Bandai Namco titles. Fans of Shonen Jump Anime and Manga wills urely be fans of the video game titles that Bandai Namco Games release because, in case you have no idea, a lot of their games are indeed based on Anime or Manga, especially that of Shonen Jump. Series’ like Naruto, Bleach, Saint Seiya, they all have their games published by Namco Bandai. About a …

Check Out These Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Images

As I’m sure all anime fans know by this point, Naruto is a pretty popular series. In fact, I hear that a few games have been made of it. Coincidentally enough, this article is about such a game, Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 to be specific. Fans of the previous three Storm titles may be interested to know that the fourth instalment promises the return of the very ninja-esque Wall Running feature. Additionally, a newly implemented Fish-Lens effect will ramp up the excitement of battle, because we all know how explosive combat between super powered combatants needs to be cooler…not that I’m complaining. So look forward to some old features and a slew of new ones as the Storm series comes to a ninja-packed end. -30-

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 – Older Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura and Hinata Revealed As Playable Characters

It’s no over exaggeration to say that “Naruto” is quite possibly the most popular contemporary Shonen title right now. Thanks to the ending of the series’ Manga, its popularity has skyrocketed far higher than anyone could have anticipated and even though 2015 is meant to mean the end of the series, I think it’s quite the opposite. In fact, I know it’s the opposite. The movie, “The Last: Naruto The Movie”, was released in theatres throughout Japan a few weeks ago and met one hell of a positive reception. Now that the run is over, our assumption is that work has begun in regards to getting the movie a home video release. Bandai Namco games announced a few weeks ago that they’ve had a new “Naruto” video game in production for quite some time and that they intend to release it worldwide this year. The new game titled “Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4”  will feature everything you’ve come to know and love from a “Naruto” game plus a whole bunch of extra stuff including …

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Is Coming To The West

Bandai Namco Games have just revealed that they already have big plans for the Western release of the recently-announced next addition to the “Naruto” video game franchise “Ultimate Ninja Storm 4”  and it comes in the form of a true next generation console release. When announced through Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen jump just the other day, “Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4” had only been noted down as a PlayStation 4 release. Well, Bandai Namco Games are going to change that with their localization of the game, announcing that it will be coming to both the Xbox One and the PC (through Steam) as well as for Sony’s latest console. Labelled the “final massive strike”, audiences are lead to believe this is the final “Naruto” game ever, but I stand a little more sceptical. Not shown in the announcement from Shonen Jump but provided by Bandai Namco Games is the official box art for the upcoming fighting game which, unfortunately, has already been met with a level of dislike from fans the world over due to how …
