This month’s V-Jump magazine is out, and in it we get a bunch of new information on the upcoming Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker. The scans of magazine reveal the map layouts of the Hidden Leaf, Cloud, and Sand villages as well as small hints on how to maneuver through them.
Judging by the scans (which you can find by heading over to ShonenGames, who have translated them), we get some hints as to how the maps will work. The Hidden Leaf map, for example, has many open areas with minimal trees which makes it easy to run through. However, that means there’s a good chance of being spotted, meaning you’ll need to balance out how you play when you enter this area.
The Sand Village, by contrast, is filled with obstacles and narrow walkways, making it a bit harder to traverse. The final map revealed, the Village Hidden in the Clouds, is filled with massive high points as well as extreme low points. Mid-air fights are a regularity here, and sneak attacks will have to be utilized often in order to win.
The magazine scan promises more information is coming on the official game site, and information regarding the upcoming beta test is also on the way.
