It’s not really a surprise but the next Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm will be available in fall of 2015. Namco Bandai has confirmed this during a presentation of the game.
A little new information about this game title is given however. We know that the fighting against the big boss will be back, and we have also been able to try it with one of the demos available with our colleagues. Hiroshi Matsuyama, president of CyberConnect 2, praised the performance of the new consoles, which, according to him, allowed developers to let go, especially when it is displayed on the screen with many enemies.
Matsuyama has also taught us that combos “fusion” would be possible, depending on the selected characters. Inevitably, Naruto, Sakura and Sasuke are part of these characters, but they are not alone, since it may also do so by combining the strengths of Hyuga in the game: Neiji, Hinata, Hanabi, and Hiashi will even appear especially for that attack fusion.
In the news and other alterations, it is also known that the Wallrun will again be possible, unlike the first game, since it will be possible to move from floor to wall and back without limitations or restrictions. However, developers do not yet know whether this feature will be available in Boss Battle or open fighting. Good news is that the choice imposed in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution, which separated Ultimate Technique, or Auto Awakening Support, has disappeared: it will be possible to benefit from the transformation of a character and launch its most powerful techniques without to choose from when selecting characters. Matsuyama has specified that this was a request from the fans; a problem that is also pointed in many review of this game.
From what we can tell, this new episode of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm looks very good, so the fans should look forward to it.
