Debuting in November 2008 with Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm on PS3, developer CyberConnect2’s marvelous 3D ninja fighting series has brought happiness to millions of fans worldwide! Publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment Japan has announced the most ‘Narutimate’ series in the world has surpassed the 10 million mark in sales for physical and digital copies combined. This is a huge accomplishment for our beloved publisher and developer and we give many congratulations to them!
It’s been almost 10 years since the original Storm, covering Naruto part 1, hit. CyberConnect2 expanded the battle to Xbox One in addition to PS3 back in 2010 with Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, which covered the story of Naruto from his return to the Hidden Leaf Village until the Pain arc. The fight went across the generations in 2012 with Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations, focusing on battles rather than story and featuring characters from Naruto part 1 and Naruto Shippuden. In 2013, the numbered Storm games returned with Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, covering the start of the Fourth Great Shinobi World War and further expanding the Naruto battles to PC/Steam in addition to Xbox 360 and PS3. 2014 brought focus once again to battles with Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution. And in 2016, the battle was upgraded to PS4 and Xbox One, in addition to PC/Steam in the form of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, which completed the great Naruto story! For their finale, Bandai Namco and CyberConnect2 expanded Storm 4 with Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4: Road to Boruto in 2017 – bringing the world into the next generation of Naruto – staring his son Boruto Uzumaki!
Naruto Storm 1, Storm 2, and Storm 3 are now also available on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC/Steam with upgraded graphics so anyone who wants to experience the story of Naruto past through video games can do so on current-gen consoles! Below are four videos telling the Ultimate Ninja Storm story from the perspective of Bandai Namco and CyberConnect2 personnel!
