Naruto x Boruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections, the latest game in the long-running Ultimate Ninja Storm series, has officially been dated for worldwide launch on 17 November 2023. As a celebration of Naruto‘s history, it will spotlight a range of battles from across the entire series, with multiple story modes allowing players to revisit moments from the classic manga, as well as new tales inspired by sequel manga, Boruto.

One major story mode will take players on a journey through the many fights of rivals Naruto and Sasuke, while another, original story will introduce fresh characters and battles. Around 130 fighters are confirmed to appear in the game, with each sporting unique attacks and special moves.

While the game will not strictly adapt the Boruto manga – which has slowly become a beloved and action-heavy part of the Naruto story – elements of this sequel will feature in the game, with a dedicated chapter exploring more of Boruto’s story, and his unique abilities. As noted by Bandai Namco, Boruto and his rival Kawaki will have access to their mysterious Karma powers, which play a key part in their tale.
