Scan from a magazine going round. Looks like an expansion like previous games had covering Boruto the movie and perhaps Naruto Gaiden.

Game will be released as a retail game - 6,800 yen - and also as a DLC for the original game. Sasuke vs Kinshiki battle will be playable at TGS.


First print edition includes UNS4 and NS4RB soundtracks. Oh, and a reversible cover for the game.

Awesome. I spent so little time on this game that it'll be good to have an excuse to play it again.

Can't read Japanese but I can see a retail release box and also the words DLC. There seems to be some announcement with UNS4 and UNS4RB, perhaps cross play online.

Is he really named Boruto? I always assumed that the localized name was Bolt.

Damn, I really need to catch up now that the manga ended =/

Boruto really is not a name that rolls off the tongue. Sounds like someone horribly mispronouncing burrito.

It should be Bolt but by this same logic Naruto would be "Narto" and Sasuke "Saske".

Same with Salad that's "Sarada".

Saw the scan.

Yeah that looks like a Ultimate Ninja Storm game, alright.

Haven't checked out a Naruto game since the first Ubisoft one on Xbox 360, which really did do the series justice gameplay mechanics-wise.

But I'm posting here because I managed to win this game but I haven't touched it yet, and the game plus the Season Pass is on sale right now on Xbox One. The Season Pass is 50% off for $10, which isn't bad since I got the game for free, but I've heard complaints about the game, mostly multiplayer stuff though.

If the scan gets translated and it shows that this *might* get included in the Season Pass, or they at least say that they will patch the game, I might bite for that Season Pass since I have some free XBL credit on hand. I have till Monday before the sale is over to see if it gets translated by then.

Not necessarily, seeing as those two aren't loanwords. Naruto is a place name and the name of a ramen topping. If anything, it would be Nart lol

Good to see the rumors of DLC for Storm 4 panned out. Now it's just a matter of wondering how many new characters this will include and also if this will fix any of the major glitches/bugs that have plagued the online multiplayer in addition to addressing the complaints about online (ex: no spectating during Endless Battle lobbies, only 4 players for endless lobbies, etc etc). And, of course, rebalancing some things (even if these games aren't going to be balanced anyway there's some really stupid stuff you can do with the switching mechanic the devs didn't test for or even think about).

If they have a good amount of additional new characters with this as well as at least address the online multiplayer complaints (such as no spectating) then I'll bite on this. Oh, actually, I guess the latter would be a free patch for everyone but still CC2 usually doesn't do patches with major new features sooo... Yeah I'd like to hear about if they're adding or fixing anything about the game in combination with releasing this DLC.

Otherwise, if this is just another Full Burst where we get like two new characters and a short story chapter... I might pass on it depending on the price.

Edit: Oh yeah, with this confirmed, it means we're probably getting the remastered collection of 1-3 because Road to Boruto was trademarked by Bamco alongside a Trilogy Collection of the Ultimate Ninja Storm games. I wonder when that will get announced, then.

Boruto roughly comes out as bolt with the added bonus as also sounding like Naruto plus his name being a pun with neji(screw) his name has fucking layers

"they can keep it. The post manga content is trash, but then again the manga is as well past the Gaara arc of part 2."

...i would say that...but its CC2..and i just love how they present material, even if i hate the material itself. Shit.

You know a lot of the Naruto names are just normal words.
For instance, Ino = Boar.
Ino is also an actual name.

Japanese names are written with kanji, so you could say they are all just normal words. All names are just normal words if you know the etymology.

Boruto sounds like a fan translation name.

Just because it's not a fan translation name, doesn't mean that it doesn't sound like a fan translation name. You feel me?
Yea it's a ridiculous name. I thought it was a joke the first time I heard it too.

The implication of a Season Pass is "All the DLC", and this is releasing as DLC for people who already own the game.
A season pass isn't a guarantee for all DLC ever.

Well I guess that's one way to get the preorder content to new players after the fact. At least I'm assuming that Boruto and Sarada will be included in dlc with one of their names in the title.

I hope it had pro mode with super sampling or better aa
Seriously. IQ is obviously much better than previous titles already, but Pro could really do the game justice with better texture filtering and more aggressive AA. Hoping at the very least they'll bother to enable to MSAA in 1080p mode.

I mean, it cannot be worse than the ending of Bleach.
The Bleach ending gave me this so I can't be mad.



And on names lets not forget,
Choji's kid name and I swear her existence is based around a pun/naming gimmick
