The first session for the Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker closed beta has come to an end! Three sessions remain, all on Saturday (when using PST as the time zone). The marquee feature of the beta was to create your own character. Players were able to select the character’s gender, what village they were from, their costumes, hair style, skin/eye/hair/headband color, and jutsu to point.
It’s worth noting the closed beta is limited on options. Some options like body type, mouth, eye type, pupil type, eyebrows, nose, and face paint had no choices to select from aside from the default assigned one. However, we know once the retail edition of the game is released, it will have a greater selection. How great, though? Well, there will be over half a million combinations that can be made between the weapons, costumes, accessories, and jutsu. And that number balloons to well over five million possible combinations in terms of avatar facial features likes like hair, mouth, eyes, and face paint.
It will certainly be exciting to see all the variation in the retail edition of Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker, which still does not have a specific release date, only that it will make way to us sometime early 2018. For now, we can get a taste of what’s to come through the closed beta.
These are the timings for the closed beta.
