Action-packed anime fighting game
Fans of fighting games and classic ‘shonen’ anime will love Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4. It is a roleplaying, action-adventure game developed by CyberConnect2 and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment in 2016. This famous Japanese fighter is the last official entry in the series. Originally made for PS4 and Xbox One, it is also available for Windows PC.
You are thrown into the narratives of professional ninjas Sasuke Uchiha and Naruto Uzumaki following the Shinobi World War. The game has a main story mode, an offline story mode set at the end of the war, and as well as the DLC Road to Boruto set fifteen years after the ninja war.
The story throws you right into the depths of battle with an intense fight - you’ll quickly find that it follows a similar theme going forward.
You better enjoy hack and slash combat because you’re going to be doing a lot of it, with few other gameplay elements. You’ll encounter several opponents and bosses as you traverse the game’s open world. It has maintained a similar gameplay style to the previous games, so it should feel familiar to diehard fans of the franchise.
Ninja Storm 4 lets you switch between characters during your battle, allowing you to be able to appreciate the complexity of available combat moves. You can also destroy your enemy’s weapons and armor in boss battles. Don’t forget to use the elements such as fire, as it can burn away an enemy’s clothing.
The game offers various modes for battles outside of the story, including survival, tournament, versus, and league.
Whether through local multiplayer with some of your best friends or online with some of the most skilled fighters in the world, the multiplayer mode is tremendous competitive fun for all. You can even practice and hone your skills beforehand to ensure that you’re battle-ready.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is great fun for fighter fans. Playing as your favorite Naruto character is nostalgic and enjoyable, and interesting with the stunning visuals.
