Naruto X Boruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections is a one-of-a-kind collection bringing together key moments from the Ultimate Ninja Storm series of games.

The tale of Naruto and Sasuke continues and has been re-cut and combined with an all new original story!

Coinciding with the 20th anniversary of the Naruto anime, Naruto X Boruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections is a unique game experience that combines key gameplay moments from the series that highlight select scenes from across Naruto and Sasuke’s deeply emotional story arcs.

The experience immerses both new and long-time fans in an exciting Naruto action game, where they can relive some of the most important and beloved storylines from the series’ history. In addition to this, an original story will also be available in the game.

Naruto X Boruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections features the largest roster in a Naruto game with playable characters from across the series, including fan-favorites Ashura and Indra Otsutsuki.

In Battle, players can choose from the largest roster in a Naruto game, with more than 130 characters, including 10 new additions. Facing their opponents, they will be able to use various combos and even change their leader to keep the pressure on their opponent.

Ninjutsu and Awakening will play an important part as well. From this game, players will be able to pick up to 6 Ninjutsu abilities to take the advantage against their opponents. They can also and awaken into a new form that will grant them more power to turn the tide in their favour. To try and finish the battle, players can use all their chakra and unleash a powerful Secret Technique, which, when selecting specific characters, can turn into a Combination Secret Technique.

Another new feature, the Simple Control mode, will help newcomers to the franchise unleash powerful combos by pressing a single button. This new control style comes in addition to the standard style players of the STORM series have known.

By fighting either solo or online, characters will level up and unlock some customisation as well as other unlockables, such as Finish scenes. Offline Free Battles will let players choose their course or completely pick the way they want to fight against a computer or do an offline tournament. Players can then hone their skills against others around the world in Online mode, choosing between Casual Match and Ranked Match.*

In the History mode, players can relive epic story battles from the Naruto series, going over key moments from the story using anime cut scenes, and enjoy a high-quality battle experience. While, in the Special Story Mode, a new story takes place during the events of BORUTO, where Boruto realises a mysterious man, Merz, is trying to initiate the war. What will be Naruto and Sasuke’s role? Players will have to find out when the game launches.
