Road to Boruto, the expansion to Naruto Storm 4 is less than a month away from its February 3, 2017 release date! Road to Boruto will be available in two forms – 1) as DLC to add on to the original physical or digital version of Naruto Storm 4 and 2) as separate physical game that also contains all of Storm 4’s content. We at Anime Games Online had a few questions floating in our minds so we turned to Gaëtan Gireme (the Community Manager at Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe), who was kind enough to share his knowledge! The answers below are not word-for-word from Mr. Gireme, we at Anime Games Online have added in some context and additional information for our readers who may not be as obsessed with the Naruto Storm series as us!
Will the original Storm 4 pre-order bonus versions of Boruto and Sarada be included with Road to Boruto?
No, they won’t be included. If you did not pre-order the original Naruto Storm 4 before its release date back in February of 2016, then it is not possible to get the pre-order versions with Road to Boruto. The Boruto and Sarada in Road to Boruto are new versions of the pre-order bonuses.
If you have the pre-order versions of Boruto and Sarada, can you pick (for example) both the pre-order version of Boruto and the Road to Boruto version of Boruto on the same team?
No, that is not possible. Two versions of Boruto or two versions of Sarada can’t be on the same team.
If a player purchases the digital version of Road to Boruto, will they be able to play it as soon as it finishes downloading, regardless of the progress made in the original Storm 4? Or will they have to beat the story mode first?
Road to Boruto will be playable as soon as it has been downloaded or installed. There is a menu selection called “Boruto’s Tale” and it is independent of the original story featuring Naruto.
If a player enjoyed the original Storm 4, will their save file transfer over to the physical version of Road to Boruto? Or will they have to re-start the game from the beginning?
Yes, Naruto Storm 4 save files will transfer over to Road to Boruto so any and all progress you made in the original game will be reflected in the updated version.
There is one more item we’ve seen players ask over and over. We did not ask Mr. Gireme this question since it has been clarified by Bandai Namco Entertainment in the past.
If I have the Season Pass for Naruto Storm 4, will I be able to get the Road to Boruto DLC for free?
No. The Road to Boruto DLC is separate from the Season Pass. Regardless of if you have the Season Pass or not, the Road to Boruto DLC will cost all players additional money to obtain. In the US, the price for the Road to Boruto DLC is $19.99. If you want the physical version of Road to Boruto, which includes all the content from Naruto Storm 4 and Naruto Storm 4 Season Pass on a single disc, the price is $49.99.
