The first trailer for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy for the Nintendo Switch has been published by Bandai Namco Entertainment Japan. It gives an overview of each of the three games within Trilogy – Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3. All three were originally released for the PlayStation 3 between 2008 and 2013. The 3-in-1 game compilation is due out in Japan on April 26, 2018. No release for North America or Europe has been announced at this time.
Naruto Storm Trilogy will run at 30 frames per second, just like on PS4. In TV mode, it will run at a resolution of 1600×900 while in Tabletop Mode and Hanhdeld Modes, it will run at a resolution of 960×540 resolution. The PS4 version ran at 1920×1080 (1080p) while the PS3 versions of the individual games ran at 1280×720 (720p).
In TV Mode and Tabletop Mode, 1 to 2 players will be able to play offline. In handheld mode, only 1 player will be able to play offline. Online will be included for Storm 2 and Storm 3, just like they were in the original release.
In terms of controller support, two Joy-Cons will be needed to play per person so if two players are playing offline, then four Joy-Cons will be needed. There is no single JoyCon support. Naruto Storm Trilogy, like most all other Switch games, will be compatible with the JoyCon grip and Switch Pro controller.
UPDATE: Naruto Storm Trilogy will be coming to Europe as well on April 26 as digital-only.
While it’s to be expected since the game compilation is exactly the same as its PS4 counterpart in terms of content, the Nintendo Switch version of the trailer is practically the exact same as the PS4 version after the 30 second mark. The first 30 seconds show footage within the Switch screen.
