Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, is a fighting game released in February 2016 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam by Bandai Namco Entertainment. It’s the seventh and final episode of the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm series, which is based on Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto manga.
The plot follows the teenage ninjas Naruto Uzumaki and Sasuke Uchiha as they fight against the terrorist group Akatsuki in the Fourth Shinobi World War. The game employs normal fighting mechanics, similar to Storm 3, but players may swap between a team of three fighters who can help each other.
Beyond the basic roster, there are a lot of characters to unlock, like with most fighting games. This primarily consists of variants of characters already in the game, such as Naruto and Kakashi, but it also includes a few characters who were previously unavailable. The characters in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 are very easy to unlock, but it will take some time to complete them all.
This is because they are all unlocked through the game’s story missions, with characters being unlocked at various points during the game. The only drawback is that you may be unable to unlock your favourite for some time.
