The release of "Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4" has been moved to February next year instead of fall this year. During the Tokyo Game Show, CyberConnect2's Hiroshi Matsuyama clarified the reason behind the postponement, which turns out to be a bid to buy more time to buff up the title.
IGN quotes Matsuyama as saying that the developers over at the game studio want "Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4" to be "powered up more" to make it the great conclusion their beloved fighting game franchise deserves and one that its huge fanbase expects.
The delay allows CyberConnect2 to work on more varying damage animations for every character in the roster, which is the biggest in the history of the video game series. This means that there will be unique simulation for every fighter when they are hit by the enemy's secret technique.
To make the upcoming title more awesome to play, Matsuyama said that they are building a never-before-seen mode that will give the players the fun of discovering the world as they fight their way to the top. No further information about this aspect was provided, however.
Fans can also look forward to cooler boss fights as the developer is fine-tuning those as well. Overall, gamers are in for some improvements on the graphics side of things as well as the gameplay.
Just recently, an action-packed trailer showing off pre-order characters Boruto and Sarada in full warrior mode was released. Fans of the series will see familiar fighting tactics there, with the former showing off some moves like that of his father, Naruto.
The clip also showed other characters from the film "Boruto: Naruto the Movie." If anything, this 2 1/2-minute-long trailer and its fast-moving impression will get fans of the video game really hyped up for "Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4," which is set for release on Feb. 4, 2016.
