New vicious finishing moves and final forms of characters were unveiled in the latest trailer of “Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4.” In the video seen below, fans get to see Naruto, Sasuke and other characters use their best moves in an all-out jutsu fight. What may disappoint fans, however, is that the game will be delayed and no longer getting a release later this year. The release has been moved instead to February 2016.
While the delay might disappoint fans, the actual video may lift their spirits. According to Siliconera, Boruto and Sarada from the final “Naruto” movie get to show off their moves for the first time in an “Ultimate Ninja Storm” video game. Fans also get a glimpse of the Final Jutsu moves of adult Naruto and Sasuke from the aforementioned movie.
The end of the video shows that Boruto and Sarada are pre-order bonuses for the game, as is an alternate look for fan-favorite character Kakashi. Fans who pre-order the game will also gain early access to the adult versions of Naruto and Sasuke, along with alternate looks for their wives Hinata and Sakura, respectively.
Lazy Gamer has also confirmed that series’ villain, Madara Uchiha, will be in the game and players will be able to access his fully powered form. The game’s heroes aren’t hopeless against him, however, as Naruto will be able to use his Sage of the Six Paths Mode and Sasuke can unleash his Rinne Sharingan. Supporting character Might Guy will also have his powerful Eight Gates mode to aid him.
So far there hasn’t been a reason given for the delay, though it’s possible that Bandai Namco and the developer CyberConnect 2 are still polishing the game and working out its kinks. Considering how some games have come out too early and have been panned for it like “Assassin’s Creed Unity,” it seems like delaying the game was the better option to go for.
“Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4” will probably have the biggest roster ever seen in a “Naruto” video game, which includes dozens of characters who have appeared in the first version of the show and "Shippuden." The game will be available for the PS4 and Xbox One.
