Bandai Namco has shared a new trailer for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 at this year’s Comic-Con in New York City.
Featured above, you can view the new trailer, which shows off Perfect Form Susano’o for the very first time. These news forms were created exclusively by Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 will be out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in February 4 in Japan and February 9 in North America and Europe.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, the latest in the series, had had a couple of new pieces of information revealed during this Gamescom 2015. Ultimate Ninja Storm 4’s release date has been moved to the 5th of February 2016 for all regions. This game will include features such as fighting while on walls, with both players on walls or one on a wall and one the ground, the ability to swap between the three characters in your team so it isn’t as separate between the main and support characters, though they will all share a single health bar. The Ultimate, Awakening and Drive fighting styles that were introduced in Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution will not be returning for this game though.
Also revealed recently is that for the first time Kaguya, Naruto (Six Paths), Sasuke (Rinnegan), Madara (Six Paths), Obito (Ten Tails Jinchuriki) will join in the battle from the more recent episodes of the anime, or a while ago in the manga. If you preorder this game then you will also recieve Boruto, the son of Naruto and Hinata, and Sarada, the daughter of Sasuke and Sakura, as playable characters.
A gameplay trailer for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 has been released, which gives us a glimpse of how in-game combat between the characters will look. The trailer which can be seen below, shows footage from the PS4 demonstration at E3, and with polished graphics and artwork, we see characters from the anime such as Naruto, utilizing his shadow clones and Madara using his Gunbai which is a large fan used in battles to shield and perform various attacks. The trailer doesn’t show any team jitsu’s, nor does it showcase any story mode cinematics, but it does specifically show Naruto and Sasuke perform their Ultimate justu’s. We also see Obito Uchiha’s BEAST special attack and Madara being easily able to grab enemies from a distance, and use his Perfect Susannoo. Environmental damage still has yet to be implemented, and the world around the ninjas remains untouched, even after an Ultimate Justu is performed.
An earlier gameplay trailer for the game released in February, showcased the epic fight between Madara Uchiha and Hashirama Senju but at that stage the game was still in early development. The new trailer doesn’t focus on any particular fight scenes, instead depicting all of the familiar characters from Naruto, showing off various moves and powers.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is the latest installment in the Ninja Storm series, and the first of the series to reach new generation consoles. New features include the ability to wall-run and a Change Leader System which will allow players to switch out characters during a fight and also create their own teams. Players can also re-create one of the legendary team from the anime series. Bandai Namco also announced on twitter this morning that Eight Gates Might Guy will be added to the playable roster of characters in Ninja Storm 4.
The talented cosplayer Ani-Mia with her Hinata Cosplay! The costume is great and she fits the Naruto character extremely well. Here are her words on the shoot…
“The photographs were taken by Nyk Foto at the Japanese Botanical Garden at the University of Washington in Seattle. The character was a suggestion from a fan that I really liked and ran with it. The most frustrating part of this costume was getting the eye color right. Hinata is described as having white eyes with hints of light purple. I tried to find contacts but the only ones with white pupils were generally a stark, harsh white all around. In the end, I had my eyes colored digitally so that I can really capture her most striking feature.”
