Bandai Namco Games have just revealed that they already have big plans for the Western release of the recently-announced next addition to the “Naruto” video game franchise “Ultimate Ninja Storm 4” and it comes in the form of a true next generation console release. When announced through Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen jump just the other day, “Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4” had only been noted down as a PlayStation 4 release. Well, Bandai Namco Games are going to change that with their localization of the game, announcing that it will be coming to both the Xbox One and the PC (through Steam) as well as for Sony’s latest console.
Labelled the “final massive strike”, audiences are lead to believe this is the final “Naruto” game ever, but I stand a little more sceptical. Not shown in the announcement from Shonen Jump but provided by Bandai Namco Games is the official box art for the upcoming fighting game which, unfortunately, has already been met with a level of dislike from fans the world over due to how “simple” it looks but I quite like it.
The simpler, the better. Also provided by Bandai Namco Games are the screenshots shown in the magazine announcement but this time they’re bigger and in full high definition so you can see every little detail. Set only for a vague 2015 release at this point in time, I can’t imagine we’ll be waiting too long for this game to hit local shelves seeing as how fast Bandai Namco managed to announce this for a Western release. If this truly is the final addition to the “Naruto” video game franchise, I have to say; it’s looking to be a damn good one!
“The Ultimate Ninja STORM series continues to be one of our most popular franchises and its leap to the new generation of hardware ensures that it won’t stop now,” said Chris Gilbert, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for BANDAI NAMCO Games America Inc. “CyberConnect2 has always poured their hearts into the NARUTO franchise and NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM 4 promises to be the ultimate realization of the series so far.”
