Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, known in Japan as Naruto Shippūden: Narutimate Storm 4 is a fighting game developed by CyberConnect2 and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam in February 2016. It is the sequel to Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution. Developed for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, a two year development schedule took place. The expansion version is entitled Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 - Road to Boruto and this version is under development to be compiled with three other titles in the series as Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Legacy, released August 25, 2017. The game received generally positive reviews, with much praise going to the game's narrative and graphics.Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 features gameplay akin to that of previous games in the series, in which players battle each other in 3D arenas. A returning feature which was omitted since the Ultimate Ninja Storm is the ability to Wall Run. Players will be able to dynamically take to battle to the sides of the arenas, and battle on the walls of each stage. A major change to the feature is the ability to have one character be on the wall, while the other stays on the field. The second player was automatically moved to the wall, to keep the battle flowing and the system in check. The option to select one of three different fighting types has been removed, which was introduced in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution, restoring the previous system of Ultimate Jutsu and Awakenings seen in the rest of the series. Another new feature is the ability to swap characters during battle, similar to games like Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Awakenings and ultimate jutsus from previous games also return, and can now be shared between the switchable characters, meaning players can build up their meter with one character, switch to the other and use said abilities with the other character. However, the characters will now all share the same life bar. Also new to the franchise is the ability to break weapons and armor, both in free battle and boss battles. To support this, they have added the ability to create elemental damage; For example, fire can burn away clothing. Players can, however, get rid of the fire by moving around quickly throughout the area or by getting hit with water attacks.The plot begins in the middle of the Fourth Shinobi World War fought by the Allied Shinobi Forces from the ninja villages where the ninja Naruto Uzumaki reveals the villain Tobi leading Akatsuki is Obito Uchiha, the presumed-dead best friend of Naruto's mentor Kakashi Hatake. As Obito and his partner Madara Uchiha manage to awake the legendary beast, the Ten Tails, Obito's partner Sasuke Uchiha has the late Konohagakure leaders, the Hokages, reanimated to learn about their village's origins. After realising that both his late brother Itachi and First Hokage Hashirama Senju fought to protect the village regardless the cost, Sasuke's team and the reanimated Hokage go to aid Naruto's group. In the fight, Naruto and Sasuke manage to defeat Obito after their enemy absorbed the powers of all Tailed Beasts. Madara tries to defeat the Hokages but when he tries to kill Naruto and Sasuke, the two ninjas awake new powers inherited from the Sage of the Six Paths. The duo then defeats Madara who is instead backstabbed by his partner Zetsu to turn him to Sage's mother, Kaguya. With the help of Kakashi and Sakura Haruno, Naruto and Sasuke manage to seal Kaguya though Obito dies in the battle trying to protect Kakashi. In the aftermath, Naruto and Sasuke engage in a final battle to decide the villages' status quo. Amazed by Naruto's decision, Sasuke gives up and leaves Konohagakure. The game ends with a time skip where Naruto has become the new Hokage and Sasuke returns to the village.
