A recently released trailer shed light on the game’s original story mode. In this mode, Boruto encounters Nanashi, a navigator from the popular online game Ninja Heroes. Their meeting sets off a chain of events that thrusts them into a battle engulfing the entire ninja world. The fate of the ‘Fifth Great Ninja War’ rests in Boruto’s hands as he strives to avert a looming crisis.

While the trailer introduced new characters previously unseen in the Naruto universe, its primary focus was on the rematch between Naruto and Sasuke, hinting at the imminent ‘Fifth Great Ninja War’. The battle between these two legendary warriors appears to be intense, with both unleashing their most formidable techniques without restraint.

The reasons behind their renewed conflict remain unknown, but a glimpse of Naruto’s eyes at the start of the trailer suggests that one or both of them may have fallen under the influence of an evil force. The true motive behind their clash and Boruto’s involvement in it will only be unveiled when the game hits the shelves later this year.

Naruto x Boruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections has faced some challenges in 2023. Speculations about a new Naruto game surfaced in 2022, and the game’s title trademark earlier this year sparked renewed hope. However, the reveal trailer during Sony’s February State of Play event received mixed reactions, as it appeared to focus more on repackaged elements from the previous four Storm games.

Since then, Bandai has gradually disclosed additional features, including highly requested characters such as ‘Baryon Mode’ Naruto, and new versions of Boruto and Kawaki. Hands-on impressions from various events have revealed significant changes in the battle mechanics since Storm 4, effectively addressing some of the earlier criticisms.
