Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Road To Boruto review (Change)




Like many ports of Japanese origin, the Nintendo Switch version of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Road to Boruto it took its time hand-wrapping – first introduced back in 2016, and the anime expansion of the film the following year – but with three different storylines, and a terrifying number of playful characters, this full-fat version helps ease the pain of time-consuming power of content. If you have completed a major 2018 port offering Naruto Shippuden: The Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy in Change, then you have to expect something to hold on to.

Few anime series is as successful and endearing as the Naruto Uzumaki one, and the developer of CyberConnect2 has produced an excellent videogame adaptation that some might consider the best rather than the content of its source. The Ultimate Ninja Storm series has been around for almost 17 years now and has grown from a humble fighting game with a small roster on the PS2 to the gargantuan warr we see today. The game's battle formula has used Namco Bandai's anime adaptation many times before – just look at it Dragon Ball FighterZ either Justice of My Hero games for beginners – with each battle featuring dozens of free-roaming characters from various characters from the universe of Naruto, with multiple QTEs and multiple cutscenes.

Fortunately, the action is more than making Naruto life, with its 3v3 battles as inspiring to watch and play as ever. Some of the older versions have been redesigned, and some recent additions have been released, making this installation more compatible with the first few games. You can now switch between characters at will with the analogue stick – to enable you to use your support characters, now only with one health line between them – making it much easier to hit your attack fly. Wall-run Return returns, adding to the acceptable balance as battles change between the walls and the earth, as well as waking up & # 39; jutsus & # 39; (dynamic over-the-top moves that see your characters unite to produce more dynamic direction).

Thanks to a simple installation scheme, it's very easy to pick and enjoy Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Road To Boruto & # 39; s arena battles (that heavy dose of set pieces and QTEs really helps), but don & # 39; i expect to actually follow this story if you are new to the world of naruto. This is, after all, the fourth game in a long-running series, one that gathers in the manga / anime & # 39; s storyline through the Fourth World War. Sure, you get a lot of content – list size and story content that competitors found in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm – but unless you know the source well enough, you'll only get half the experience. Fans of the new Naruto work better by investing in the aforementioned trilogy before going all in on this installation. Even the addition of Baruto's expansion – which follows the exploitation of Naruto's son – is a piece of the story that is best conveyed to existing fans.

The cutscenes in Story mode – one of Naruto Shippuden: The Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Road To Boruto & # 39; s many ways – are probably his biggest compromise, especially since the developers rely on semi-static images played over audio from anime. It's as if the developer wanted to make this conversion feel very different than the anime, but why trade in the quality of the source material where its installation can only work to improve the combat performance itself? The result is a narrative transfer that may put fans of heavy metals and who may have a new arrival by simply skipping to the next fight.

Like a port, Naruto Shippuden: The Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Road To Boruto runs smoothly, following no deterioration conditions or noticeable drops. The menu change is smooth, and we found the ability to switch between characters goes a lot better than previous entries. There is also support for online gaming, and netcode is held firm in all of our multiplayer games, though we quickly learned that those simple entries cover the real difficulties when you first learn which characters and their comics make the best team. However, there is no original content added for Switch users over other console versions, block open-source support.


Thanks to some welcome changes to its main programs – especially the improved battle modes and the excellent content of the story – Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Road to Boruto is the most accessible and fun place in the series so far. While excellent for a solid Naruto crowd, it is nonetheless a vibrant package with excellent range, a large amount of unstoppable content and the inclusion of film compositions in the Baruto story line. If you love all things Naruto, this fourth installment is a must-add to your ninja collection.
