Final installment in the Naturo Shippuden Storm series
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is a free action title for mobile developed by Minerale Ltd. It is the final installment in the popular Naruto Storm series of fighting games. In it, players will get to experience some of the greatest fights that took place in anime and manga series.
Compared to NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM Revolution and NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM 3 Full Burst, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 boasts the most vibrant art style in the series yet, making for some impressive fight scenes. It also introduces an overhauled battle system.
Relive Naruto Shippuden
Naruto and Naruto Shippuden stands as one of the greatest manga and anime series ever. It features an endearing story paired with equally impressive fight scenes, hence it's no wonder that it received game adaptations like the Storm series. Each entry takes on memorable arcs and battles, and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 serves as the finale to cap off the whole story.
The Storm series has made a name for itself for its over-the-top art style, and with Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, you can play any of the 106 playable characters from the Naruto universe. Combat has also been overhauled, bringing the return of wall-running, the ability to freely swap members mid-battle, and a new armor and weapon break system in free and boss battles.
You have two game modes, with the first being your standard Story Mode that picks up where Storm 3 Final Burst left off. The other is a DLC called Road to Boruto, which basically serves as a primer to prepare you for the next chapter in the Naruto saga. One thing that stood out from the experience was the poor AI design, which made the fights rather shallow and predictable.
A proper send-off
If you've been a fan of the Naruto Storm series of games from the start, then you'll be glad to know that Naruto: Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is a great last entry that did an admirable job at closing out the Shippuden saga. It looks great, featured over a hundred characters, and made meaningful refinements to the combat. It's well worth checking out.
