With Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 launching on February 5 in Europe and February 9 in North America, Bandai Namco and CyberConnect2 have announced that The Sound Four are coming as post-launch DLC.
CyberConnect 2 CEO Hiroshi Matsuyama talked about adding The Sound Four as playable characters:
I know that these characters have been highly requested for a long time and we are excited to finally bring them to our fans. We have been hard at work to make sure that The Sound Four are very unique to play as. The team has been pouring over countless manga issues and anime episodes to create the best versions of The Sound Four possible!
More details set to arrive in the coming months.
Calling Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 “a turning point for” CyberConnect2, Matsuyama said they knew they had to beyond fan expectations of what an Ultimate Ninja Storm game could be, which includes adding the largest roster of characters ever in a Naruto game.
He later added:
One of the biggest changes to the gameplay is the dynamic between main team leader character and sub-characters. In previous games your team of three characters consisted of the main party leader and two sub-characters that players could summon for assist moves during the battle. Now players can swap between all three characters during the battle to be used as the team leader bringing with it a host of new strategies for team formations and battle tactics. It’s an incredibly useful tool to help hone and improve your skills.
As for the Story Mode, Matsuyama said, “The final battle is so amazing it even made me cry.”
Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
