Imagine if you will, that you lived in the world of Naruto. It’s the fantasy of every kid who run with their arms sticking out at an ungodly angle, a dream for the fan that will never come true as they convince themselves that they’re stuck in a crafty genjutsu illusion. Sad fellas that. On the other hand, why bother with the blood and guts of that ninjutsu-centric world, when you can easily bleed an avatar out instead on the flatscreen?
That’s the idea behind Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Strikers as players are going to get the chance to craft their own warrior of the night. The latest issue of Weekly Jump via Gematsu dropped a few new details on the upcoming squad jutsu-‘em-up action game, such as a proper character creation system. It has all the standard customisation features in regards to the face: Eyes,lips, eyebrows and nose for starters.
Hopefully I can create my ultimate ninja:
In addition to that, players can also choose their favourite weapon and primary ninjutsu. I’m cautiously optimistic that my signature ninja technique, Not-in-The-Face-No-Jutsu, will make the cut. Other information revealed from the magazine:
- Story – The Seventh Hokage is ending his leadership role over Konoha and has started the Shinobi League in order to find the strongest ninja from around town to replace him.
- VR Ninjutsu Arena – Dust off the PS VR, as virtual combat options will be available.
- Boruto – F*** him, but for his tens of fans he will be playable as an Attack-Type fighter.
Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker pops onto PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2018. Apparently if you hit the disk, it vanishes in a puff and smoke and leaves an old tree stump in its place.
