New screenshots for the recently confirmed playable characters Sarada Uchiha and Mitsuki and new Hidden Leaf Village stage have been released.
Sarada is a heal-type character and is a good fit for every 4-player-team since she can heal her teammates while attacking the enemies with the Uchiha Shuriken Jutsu Spring Storm jutsu. Mitsuki is a defensive type of character. His Sage Mode allows him to raise all of his abilities, but with the drawback that he will not be able to use Ninjutsu at the same time. In addition to these two new playable characters, Boruto Uzumaki will also be a new master who teaches players’ custom created characters everything about Ninjutsu and secret techniques. Lastly, players will be pleased to discover a new stage with the modernized Hidden Leaf Village from the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime. By the looks of it, this stage won’t have any of those dangerous pits so it will be easy for beginners to master!
