Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe has revealed more details about the gameplay of its acrobatic ninja battle action game, Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker, developed by Soleil Ltd. and scheduled for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Expert Ninjas are gathered to compete in 4 vs. 4 online battles on large 3D stages and they can choose between 4 different types of Ninjutsu:
-Attack-type fighters such as Naruto Uzumaki, Kakashi Hatake, and Pain will have powerful, fast and strong attacks.
-Ranged-type fighters such as Sasuke Uchiha, Itachi Uchiha, and Konan who are famous for their long-distance attacks.
-Defense-type fighters like Kisame Hoshigaki who are able to reinforce his defense.
-Heal-type fighters like Sakura Haruno will be able to heal themselves and other players.
Not only that was released as Bandai Namco Entertainment has shown off the two main battle modes: Barrier mode and Flag mode which are playable in 4 vs 4. Teams are split into Offense and Defense in the Barrier mode where they have to defeat the boss, and in the Flag mode teams of 4 shinobi have to capture each other’s flag and take it back to their territory. Other sub mission modes such as the escort, extermination, and subjugation will allow players to co-op with friends to achieve their missions!
This all looks like a lot of fun, what will be interesting to learn about is how the roster is going to shape up since we’ve only seen a handful of well-known favourites.
Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker will come to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
