“Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Road to Boruto” is being released for North American and European locations on Feb. 3. However, the downloadable expansion, which is compatible for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, will be first released for Japanese PS4 gamers on Feb. 2.

“Road To Boruto,” which will be available for US$19.99 (AU$26), will allow players to control Boruto Uzumaki, Naruto’s child, and his friend Sarada Uchiha. The narrative of the game basically centres on the view of Burrito in “Boruto: Naruto the Movie.”

Because of the extensive storytelling that is already part of “Ultimate Ninja Storm 4,” the new downloadable expansion seems a little lavish, if not outright unnecessary. Nevertheless, it is sure to provide gamers with a new experience as it will definitely introduce a roster of new characters as well. Furthermore, there are new areas to explore such as the Hidden Leaf Village. Additional adventures also include the battle between Sasuke and Kinshiki.

The “Road To Boruto” expansion will be available in a physical release, a digital download release and a DLC expansion release. The physical and digital release will cost about US$66 (AU$88) and will include the full “Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4” game as well as all three previous expansions. The standalone DLC, on the other hand, is being released specifically for players that already have their hands on the base game.

Japanese players who have been hesitant to purchase the game up until this point can also take advantage of a deal that Bandai Namco is releasing. On Nov. 22, the “Ultimate Ninja Storm 4” base game will be available for 3800 Yen (AU$45).

Attendees of the Tokyo Game Show 2016, which will be held from Sept. 15 to 18, will be able to see a live demo of the battle between Sasuke and Kinshiki. Moreover, an exclusive trailer of the entire expansion will be showcased as well.

It is still unknown at this point when Bandai Namco will expand the release of “Road To Boruto” outside of Japan, North America and Europe.
