Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 - Road to Boruto

Fighting 03 February 2017

A content-rich expansion for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, a fourth entry in the series developed by Cyberconnect 2. The plot of the expansion, called Road to Boruto, goes beyond the original manga and animated series, drawing from side entries such as Boruto: Naruto the Movie, a full-length animated movie, and the comic series Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. As a result, we can relive the events that took place after the conclusion of the Naruto Shippuden series, and take control of completely new characters, which are a part of the next generation of ninja warriors (many of them are the children of the well-known heroes). The expansion doesn’t change the game mechanics in any way, focusing on introducing a new storyline and previously unknown characters such as titular Boruto (son of Naruto) or Sarada (daughter of Sasuke and Sakura). Aside from that, the Hidden Leaf Village received new locations to explore.

Similar to the previous installments, spectacular duels filled with explosions are at the core of the experience, as each of the in-game ninjas has powerful special abilities at their disposal. The player can take part in countless battles, choosing from among over 40 characters included - the fans of the Naruto Shippuden series are definitely familiar with those, but the game features one fighter from Tekken 6 as well. Apart from the duel mode typical for this genre, the player will also find an extensive story mode that focuses on adventures of Naruto and Sasuke - one can go through the most important encounters from the original anime series in this mode. Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 offers 23 interactive 3D arenas that are also destructible. What is completely new here however, is an opportunity to play in co-op mode for up to 4 players.

Before each fight, you pick a team of three warriors: the leader that you control directly and to AI-controlled companions, which allows you to perform spectacular combo attacks.

Apart from the more classic battles, the game also features a story mode, which consists of over 100 missions based on the anime series.

One Piece: Burning Blood
One Piece: Burning Blood

Fighting 21 April 2016

Another installment in the popular 3D fighting game series based on the best-selling Japanese comic books created by Eiichiro Oda. The title was co-developed by Namco Bandai Games and Spike Chunsoft studio – the creators of Danganronpa and the Conception series. The plot is not very sophisticated as it serves only as a pretext for the most famous One Piece fighters to engage in duels. The game includes all of the important characters from the original manga. What differentiates this title from series like Tekken is the fact that in One Piece: Burning Blood you can control a team of three fighters that can be switched during battles any time you want. Each character has its own set of moves as well as special attacks, called Logia Moves. The key to success is the correct choice of team members, creating a versatile mix of offensive and defensive abilities.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy

Fighting 25 August 2017

A compilation of three games from a popular series developed by CyberConnect2 that are based on a hit manga created by Masashi Kishimoto and its animated adaptation. The collection contains: Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm (2008), Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 (2010) and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst (2013). The series takes place in a world that is a combination of feudal Japan, magical fantasy and modern technologies where one of the most important roles in shaping the geopolitical situation belongs to villages that train ninja warriors who are later rented out for money. All three games in the collection have the same basics and the goal of the games is to fight with other warriors that have their own fighting style and unique special attacks. However, all titles are thoroughly remastered and thanks to that they offer a smoother animation, better anti-aliasing and a higher resolution.

The arenas are also varied, filled with numerous objects such as traps, obstacles, or springboards. Arms contains an AI module, but player on player combat is the highlight of the game, with both offline and online game modes.
