V-Jump featured Bandai Namco and Soleil’s Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker in this month’s issue. The scan covers map design and how to maneuver through key parts, and hints at the upcoming beta.
Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker’s beta has a lot of people excited in that the small trial will provide a nice snippet of the full version, which the actual game is set to launch for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
The beta for Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker has been talked about for some time now, but in this month’s issue of V-Jump, translated by ShonenGamez, comes another mention of the playable beta, which means that we could hear information from Bandai Namco soon.
While we wait for official beta information, the same magazine scan reveals map layouts of the Hidden Leaf, Cloud and Sand villages. Each image also gives some small hints on how to maneuver on each map as seen below.
The scan ends with the following translated text that reads:
“Videos on Shinobi movement and Avatar Systems available on the official site! Also check out for beta test info!”
So we should see videos on Shinobi Striker’s official Japanese website, along with beta info sometime soon.
Furthermore, the team over Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker is considering whether microtransactions should be in the game as a cosmetic based feature or if the feature should be absent at launch.
A lot of publishers and developers have abused microtransactions to a whole new level that has caused concerns about basic features in full priced games, especially for items unlocked through RNG or cash shop purchases.
If the beta features microtransactions or broken content, it is best to voice your opinion to the devs for it to either be fixed or removed. Until then, you can learn more about Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker via naruto-action.bn-ent.net or bandainamcoent.com.
