After months of being shrouded in the shadows (just like a true ninja), Bandai Namco’s MOBA-esque game Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker finally revealed new info! According to the latest Japanese Weekly Shonen Jump, two new characters will be joining in on the battles – Uchiha Sarada and Mitsuki!
Uchiha Sarada is the daughter of the Fifth Hokage’s Disciple, Haruno Sakura – now Uchiha Sakura – and the legendary Supporting Shadow, Uchiha Sasuke. She will be playing a Defense-oriented role on Shinobi Striker. Meanwhile, Orochimaru’s synthetic human “child” Mitsuki will be cast as a Support on the game. Both characters are part of Boruto’s Team Konohamaru.
