A gameplay trailer for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 has been released, which gives us a glimpse of how in-game combat between the characters will look. The trailer which can be seen below, shows footage from the PS4 demonstration at E3, and with polished graphics and artwork, we see characters from the anime such as Naruto, utilizing his shadow clones and Madara using his Gunbai which is a large fan used in battles to shield and perform various attacks. The trailer doesn’t show any team jitsu’s, nor does it showcase any story mode cinematics, but it does specifically show Naruto and Sasuke perform their Ultimate justu’s. We also see Obito Uchiha’s BEAST special attack and Madara being easily able to grab enemies from a distance, and use his Perfect Susannoo. Environmental damage still has yet to be implemented, and the world around the ninjas remains untouched, even after an Ultimate Justu is performed.
An earlier gameplay trailer for the game released in February, showcased the epic fight between Madara Uchiha and Hashirama Senju but at that stage the game was still in early development. The new trailer doesn’t focus on any particular fight scenes, instead depicting all of the familiar characters from Naruto, showing off various moves and powers.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is the latest installment in the Ninja Storm series, and the first of the series to reach new generation consoles. New features include the ability to wall-run and a Change Leader System which will allow players to switch out characters during a fight and also create their own teams. Players can also re-create one of the legendary team from the anime series. Bandai Namco also announced on twitter this morning that Eight Gates Might Guy will be added to the playable roster of characters in Ninja Storm 4.
