The PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam versions of CyberConnect2 and Namco-Bandai Games’ Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 are the series’ sixth and final entries. It came out on February 4 in Japan, February 5 in Europe and February 9 in the United States. On February 3, 2017, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam, a special edition titled “Road to Boruto” became available. The Nintendo Switch version was launched on April 24, 2020.

The “Wall Running” element from earlier instalments, in which two shinobi can fight while climbing the walls of the chosen stage, returns in this game. However, unlike previous instalments, in which if one character ran up the division, the other character was compelled to battle on the border as well, it is hinted that in this game, the other character can still fight on the ground if they so want.

The game’s developers added a new mechanic called “Leader Swap,” which lets you swap out the main on-point character you’re fighting for your support characters, who may cancel into and out of a wide variety of activities and use them to take on your opponent. The substitute character will take over the original character’s Awakened condition and share their life bar. However, Leader Swaps can quickly disengage assaults hit on the user, which might invalidate the offense further if employed correctly.

Hence support-only characters from earlier games in the series have been eliminated due to the new feature (essentially allowing skilled users to maintain both offense and defence simultaneously). When you play a new version of Naruto with a new version of Sasuke, you’ll unlock a great Combination Awakening for the two of them.

Storm Revolution’s three combat styles—Ultimate, Awakening and Drive—have been taken out of the running. Like in previous games, the player can employ all three categories simultaneously in solo and team battles. The ability to select a variety of jutsu to utilize in battle before engaging in combat is back for the first time since the series’ original entry, Ultimate Ninja: Shadow of the Ninja.

We’ve included some of the best games of all time, such as Disney Remastering Gargoyles and  Zenless Zone Zero in case you’re seeking more options.

Outfits can now be damaged on impact and eventually worn out, making the game more realistic than its predecessors. The effects of Jutsu on the garb will be permanent. For instance, in the case of a fireball, the character will remain on fire for a short while. However, dousing them in water will put out the flames. During boss fights and free battles, stages will be destroyed, and particles will be eliminated as they wear down.

Alterations to other mechanics include:

  • Having no way to cancel out of a close or mid-range strike into a ninja tool is a significant nerf to characters whose movesets rely on projectiles.
  • With the help of Leader Swap, players may easily save the Body Replacement meter across team members, as the meter now recharges slightly faster than in Generations, Generations 3 and Revolution.
  • The air chakra dash’s movement speed and initiation time have been drastically reduced, rendering it functionally ineffective.

Trivia

  • KANA-BOON provided the opening theme for this game, “Spiral.”
  • The Road to Boruto DLC adds a new opening, which, interestingly enough, does not feature the original opening theme from the main series.
    After the manga and anime series concluded, this Ultimate Ninja Storm game served as the series’ final main instalment.
  • After the battle with Kaguya, the Kage summoned Team 7, the tailed monsters, and Madara Uchiha from Kaguya’s dimension, although Yagura and M were omitted.
  • The opening sequence of Diver alludes to the ultimate battle between Naruto and Sasuke, which takes place in the water.
  • Naruto and Sasuke’s arms were filtered to remove blood after their battle in Valley of the End.
  • Madara replaces his severed right arm with the white Zetsu right arm in the scene where his arm was severed by the Tailed Beasts’ Tailed Beast Full Charge. While he may have lost his right arm in another game, he still has his in this one.
  • After the Infinite Tsukuyomi, they were absent from the moment Madara detailed the Kage’s defeat.
  • Minato kept his arms in the game even after Obito and Madara sliced off his arms in the cutscene.
  • By precisely timing the movement of their right thumbstick upon tagging in one of their supports, players can temporarily control both characters until the on-point perspective flips to the most recently tagged-in character, a feature known as “Right Stick Moves” (R-Moves for short). Though it was discussed whether or not it was a bug, the quality was never addressed in any of the game’s patches, leading many to believe it was designed that way.
