Naruto continues to gain momentum, marking the anime’s 20th anniversary in October, and the 4th anniversary of “Naruto to Boruto Shinobi Striker” back in August. There has been lots of excitement around the series, but what can we look forward to in the future?
Read on to see the newest character DLC Konohamaru Sarutobi (Bortuo) in action for Naruto to Boruto Shinobi Striker, plus info on the renovated map Hidden Sand Village Training Field and insight on making the game!
A Look Back…
The project was born out of a desire to create a game that would allow players to experience themselves as “shinobi” through their avatars, even though various Naruto games have been sold to date. In the initial stages of development, the most difficult part was coming up with the rules of the game. The developers wanted to make it easier to win and more interesting for the four players to share roles and work in tandem. After repeated test-plays and revisions, they created the game we all know and love!
Thanks to user support, we’ve been able to celebrate four years of new content from the initial launch. Now, with the latest Konohamaru Sarutobi (Boruto), we mark the release of 31 types of DLC.
In these four years, there’s been a concerted effort to create weapons and costumes that can be obtained through in-game events, with a total of 1,000 types available. There are also original scientific ninja tools that can only be used in Shinobi Striker, so Naruto fans should take note of that.
Weapons and costumes used by the original characters are always popular, but colorful items such as Frog Costume and the Nine Tails tail accessory are also very popular, making it fun just to walk through the online lobby and see the unique avatars.
The lobby was created as a place where people who don’t know each other can interact with each other through emoticons, and we found out that there were so many more. And there were 150 different character emotions in the lobby, too!
Updates and Improvements
On top of cosmetic updates, the developers have been working to improve the playing environment. We have been aware of the problem that some people play unfairly, focusing on it last year and finally implemented a reporting function in the update on September 28, 2022.
The development team is also focusing on the map renovations that users have been requesting. The renovated map Hidden Sand Village Training Field was just recently released!
Now, the narrower size of the map is divided into upper and lower levels, which can be accessed through holes placed in several locations on the map, allowing you new ways to sneak up on the enemy team.
In addition, routes are narrowed down by fences and lids that appear at different times of the day and under different battle rules for the stages.
As a new gimmick, some of the fences that narrow down the route have movable gates that open…
