YOOOSHA!!! Rejoice as Bandai Namco Entertainment and developer CyberConnect2 are answering the call of fans! On this now marvelous Monday it has been announced that Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 will be receiving a free update to allow players to engage in 8-player endless matches and spectate them via Spectator Mode. Currently, Endless Battles in Storm 4 are limited to 4-players and while other players in an Endless Battle or tournament fight, everyone else is left looking at an almost static screen. A release date for 8-player endless and Spectator Mode has not yet been announced, but Anime Games Online hopes to have additional details as soon as they are available.
Additionally, new screenshots for Naruto Storm 4: Road to Boruto have been released. You may have seen a few of these from our previous post titled New Characters, Team Ultimate Confirmed, but there are many new ones mixed in and all clean and clearly visible. At the 50-second mark, Yurui, the bubblegum-using genin from the Hidden Cloud Village can be seen. Other characters confirmed are Mitsuki and for story mode Momoshiki Ōtsutsuki, Kinshiki Ōtsutsuki, and Shikadai Nara. Boruto Uzumaki, Sarada Uchiha, Hokage Naruto, and Adult Sasuke will all receive updates as well.
Update November 25, 2016: Bandai Namco has informed us Yurui, Momoshiki, Kinshiki, and Shikadai have only been confirmed for story mode at this point in time.
