The 1st current-gen installment within the Ultimate Ninja Storm series will take place after the plotline that came to an end in the last release. From the looks of the many trailers released thus far, the Story Mode seems to be ditching the open-world exploration elements it once championed. However, the developers have alluded to some sort of new mode that will incorporate discovering more of Naruto’s vast world. For Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, players will hop into different arcs of the remaining Naruto Shippuden storyline. There will be a total of four chapters to complete, which will take approximately 10 hours to finish.

Check out the official descriptions of each playable Story Mode chapter below:

While the base fighting mechanics of this sequel are largely familiar, a host of big changes have been made to make each battle even more climactic than before. Wall Running will be back, and this time, one character can stick to the wall while their opponent can stay flat on the ground. The option to choose from three different fighting styles has been ditched, which means the old way of doing things (focusing on Ultimate Jutsu’s and Awakenings) has returned. On top of all that, weapon/armor breaking and elemental damage will be implemented.

The biggest change to how you’ll play is the added option of swapping characters in and out during battle. One shared life gauge will exist between either your choice of a 2-man tag team or 3-man squad. Support characters will make their return. Plus once one character enters their Awakening state, everyone else on that shinobi’s team will transform into their’s as well. The combo potential and strategic character switching aspects of Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 are seemingly endless.
