“Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4” is a month away from its worldwide release and Bandai Namco have decided to entice players to pre-order the game by showing off the pre-order exclusive characters: Boruto and Sarada. The two characters are the children of Naruto and Sasuke respectively, gaining attention through the final “Naruto” animated film.

The same fans are probably excited to see these two in action, as the video below demonstrates. In a fun move, the developers have Boruto and Sarada take on younger versions of their fathers from the first anime series. 

Players get to see the similarities and differences between the two characters, which is why the video was named “old vs new.” Boruto uses clone jutsu as much as his father did and it seems like Sarada has mastered the Chidori rather early, or a lightning type move that looks similar to the technique.

While most pre-order characters end up on the PSN or Xbox Live Store after a few months, it seems like Bandai Namco won’t be doing the same thing. According to an article from WCCFtech, Boruto and Sarada will remain exclusive to those who pre-order the game. Anyone who doesn’t will not gain access to the two characters.

Interestingly enough, PlayStation Lifestyle stated that Bandai Namco originally took down the video below before someone else managed to upload the video. It’s an odd move to make considering that the game is a month away and the company should want fans to pre-order the game for these characters.

Still, that shouldn’t ruin the excitement many fans have for “Ultimate Ninja Storm 4.” The game will let players play the final chapter in the series: the Fourth Shinobi World War. Furthermore, this arc raps up the series and finally gives Naruto and his friends a conclusion.

“Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4” is scheduled for a Feb. 4 release date on PS4, Xbox One and PC. The fighting game will feature the largest roster ever seen in a “Naruto” game. The game will be published by frequent publisher Bandai Namco and developed by Cyber Connect 2.
