Naruto Storm 4: New Mode to Discover the World, New Language Support

From the 2015 Tokyo Game Show, small tidbits of news for Naruto Storm 4 have been revealed! The first revolves around why the game was delayed from Fall 2015 to February 2016 worldwide. IGN reports Naruto Storm 4 will have increase gameplay volume, including a new mode exclusive to the game that will allow players to “discover the world.”

According to Hiroshi Matsyama, the president/CEO of game developer CyberConnect2, they wanted the game to get “powered up more” since it’s the first Naruto title on the new generation of consoles. The additional development time will allow the great team at CyberConnect2 to improve animations such as creating different damage animations for individual characters when they’re attacked by an opponent’s secret technique (ultimate jutsu) as opposed to all characters performing the same animation and polish boss fights and other elements.

No additional details were revealed at the Tokyo Game Show in regards to this, but expect more to be announced next month (in October) from the New York Comic Con. This includes news on features of Storm 4, news on Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto’s involvement with the game, and new gameplay!

The second tidbit of news deals with new language support! Naruto Storm 4 will have Japanese, English, Spanish, and Brazilian Portugese voice over work. Subtitles will make their way in the form of English, French, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Italian, German, and Arabic! This will be the most diverse game in the franchise in terms of language support, so it shows just how huge STORM has become since the release of the first game in the franchise back in 2008!

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is the final game in the Storm series. It will feature the most realistic graphics ever seen in the Storm series with 1080p resolution. The game is in development by CyberConnect2 and will be published by Bandai Namco Entertainment in Japan on February 4, 2015, in Europe on February 5, 2015, and North America on February 9, 2016 for the Sony PlayStation 4, Microsoft Xbox One and PC/Steam.
