The information had been leaked since November 2022 with the trademark filing’Ultimate Ninja Storm CONNECTIONS” and it was during State of Play on February 23, 2023 that the new Naruto game was made official, under the name Naruto x Boruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections. Finally, “new” is a very big word as it is rather a revised and corrected version of the previous one Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4: Road to Boruto released in 2017. With the 20th anniversary of the anime series celebrating Toei Animation this year, it was too tempting for Bandai Namco Entertainment and CyberConnect2 not to get a taste of their amazing saga again of the day, especially on the latest home consoles. Result : Naruto x Boruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections will feature new fighters, in addition to the 124 playable ninjas already present in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Road to Boruto, never seen in the series so far. The first to be revealed are none other than Ashura Ôtsutsuki and Indra Ôtsutsuki!
Arriving on PS5 and Xbox Series, the game will benefit from a frame rate increased to 60 frames per second, improved graphics, but also new content such as a new original story.
