With any new fighting video game release comes some brand-new combatants to choose and throw down with. It’s exponentially more exciting when the fighting game series in question has been going on for many years and is based off of a series that has more unique characters than I’ve had hot meals.
I bought my very first console with my own money thanks to the original Naruto Ultimate Ninja which had me captivated at first glance and despite my dislike for what Naruto has become I still find myself getting excited for every new release of the series so, as you can imagine, talk of Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 still gets me just as excited as it always has.
Bandai Namco Games have been slowly but surely unveiling some of the upcoming game’s new characters and combat systems, and thanks to the latest issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump it has been revealed that Obito Uchiha will indeed feature as a playable character.
We’ve seen him in the past as Tobi and even further in the past as a younger Obito but I don’t believe we’ve ever gotten a chance to play as the Obito hell-bent on revenge and the destruction of the Earth. We’ve especially never played as the Obito that shares his body with Zetsu which, if you’ve read the Manga, you’d know is what he becomes very close to the end. It’s a shame the magazine didn’t release anymore information about him like he’s moveset or something of that calibre, but true fans of the series would have a pretty good idea about how he’d fight.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is set for a Fall/Autumn release this year for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the PC.
