If you managed to get in and play the February open beta, which went live on February 23rd and ended on February 25th, special gear will be waiting for you in the full game.
It’s worth noting that only PS4 players have access to this special gear due to the open beta being absent from PC and Xbox One platforms. It’s unclear if the devs will hold a special event for PC and Xbox One players to snag the exclusive gear later on, but at this point, only time will tell.
Last but not least, the curious will find that this exclusive gear happens to be Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker-branded shirts for your avatar(s). These shirts will be applicable in the full version of the game when it releases later this year.
Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker is currently in development for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. As for the Japanese version, it will only debut for PS4.
