Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is now out of a year, February 4, 2016, and have since exited various DLC that they showed us the story of Gaara, to Shikamaru, and finally they put the control of the famous quartet of sound format from Sakon, Tayuya, Jirobo and Kidomaru. Our review has awarded the final chapter of Naruto, but no one would expect a further distance DLC a year after . But here Road to Boruto .
Japan has been serialized the manga with the adventures of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations (pronounced Bòruto, by Bolt), Naruto’s son that we have met during the series finale. Designed by Mikio Ikemoto, the stretch very similar to those of Masashi Kishimoto, Boruto is now the ninth chapter of his manga, and at the end of the first arc, with the defeat of the enemy first.
In fact, this first saga recounts the events of the feature film ” Boruto – Naruto the Movie “, so only from now on we will see unpublished content. To please all the fans who would like to keep up with the times (and who would not have to buy a new game dedicated solely to Boruto), here is that Namco Bandai gives us Road to Boruto , a rather full-bodied DLC that retraces the events of the film and this first manga saga.
The story of the Road to Boruto starts after those of the original story , in which Naruto has become the respected seventh Hokage of the village of Konoha. The years have followed in peace thanks to the efforts of all the ninja who participated in the war, but this peace has led young people to create and less important problems related to their age.
After a special where Sarada, daughter of Sasuke and Sakura, goes in search of the truth about his origins (thinking about being the daughter of Karin instead of Sakura), we find that Boruto feels a strong dislike for his father, who does nothing but work neglecting his family. To try to impress the Hokage, Boruto starts to make use of a tool that had been prohibited, which allows the use of powerful jutsu without knowing how to actually launch.
ùDurante the examination for the selection of Chuunin, Boruto is discovered by his father to use the bracelet and is thus disqualified, however at that time the village is attacked by Momoshiki and Kinshiki, two members of the clan Otsutsuki and Kaguya descendants, the main villain Naruto story. Naruto protects her son with her body and is kidnapped by the two Otsutsuki seeking revenge, but to save him start Sasuke, Boruto, Kage and the other villages.
New characters, new techniques
The gameplay Road to Boruto remains identical to that of the base game, without any change whatsoever. What the DLC brings with it a story mode in which travel along the story of Boruto, excellently reproduced with fantastic cutscenes in the purest style CyberConnect2. The battles of this are relatively few and the whole is completed in a little over an hour, but we have definitely turned their noses to see that many of the characters that appear are not playable as real wrestlers in Versus mode.
During the adventure will meet, for example, Konohamaru as an adult, we can not directly use, and this may be of no importance were it not that we can not even take control of the villains of Road to Boruto, Momoshiki and Kinshiki. The DLC will allow us to use Boruto, Sarada (these two previously available as a preorder bonus of the main game), Hokage Naruto, Sasuke Roadster, Sakura YA, Gaara Adult and finally, the third member of the team Boruto, Mitsuki, which is in Orochimaru actually a clone at a young version, a sort of son. From the previous game also returns the robotic Mecha-Naruto, original character introduced in the story of Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution.
Beyond that will be added of course various finishing moves in combo between the various characters, and a dozen extra playable missions during the Boruto Adventure mode, you can still explore the Konoha Village to perform tasks and gain items and money in-game, thereby increasing the longevity of the title.
Graphically Road to Boruto remains on high standards to which we have become accustomed CyberConnect2 , with excellent polygonal models and stunning animations with lots of cutscenes that give rise to situations of apocalyptic destruction. Japanese dubbing, what we tried (as the English one, as good quality, it is not recommended to anyone), it is as always elevated by the beautiful voices of voice actors and their great expressiveness.
However we have some grievances about the Italian translation of the work: the adaptation and translation using as a base English subtitles rather than the original material , and this leads to a variety of situations in which the meaning of certain phrases is brutally maimed.
