Naruto Ultimate Ninja 4 Shippuden vie pelaajan Naruto-anime- ja -manga-sarjojen maailmaan. Peli yhdistelee toiminta- ja roolipelien ominaisuuksia ja kertoo Naruton taustatarinan, jota ei ole aiemmin kerrottu missään.
Ultimate Ninja 4: NARUTO Shippuden features several unique game modes that offer different experiences as players immerse themselves in the world of ninja. The new Master Mode combines role-playing and action-platforming elements, telling the story of how Naruto came to return to the Hidden Leaf Village after his training with Jiraiya; an original narrative arc that fans won’t find anywhere else. Players can collect items in this mode to unlock characters in Free Battle Mode, featuring the series’ trademark one-on-one ninja battles for one or two players. Packed with new NARUTO Shippuden characters such as Deidara, Sasori and Chiyo as well as updated versions of fan favorites such as Gaara, Kakashi and Sakura, the game features 52 total playable characters to take into battle.
