From the formation of Team 7 and Chunin Exams to the Five Kage Summit and Fourth Great Ninja War, Naruto x Boruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm CONNECTIONS highlights many of Naruto‘s story arcs. Featuring the game series’ trademark cinematic fights and true-to-anime visuals, and an all-new simple control style for newcomers, fans can go head-to-head in up-to-3v3 team-based combat, where tactical thinking, swift attacks, and overwhelmingly powerful Jutsus will determine victory. The game features the largest playable roster in a Naruto game with over 130 fighters to choose from. Naruto x Boruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm CONNECTIONS also features a unique in-game story where Naruto’s son Boruto must stop the threat of the Fifth Great Ninja War from breaking out. The experience is enhanced with localized voice-over in multiple languages with Japanese, English, Neutral Spanish, and Brazilian Portuguese.
