The last major entry within the Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm series that the world ever got to see was back in 2016. Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 was developed by CyberConnect2 and had BANDI NAMCO as its publisher and was released for the PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. The Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 game was arguably the best fighting title of ‘16 along with Street Fighter V and had received mainly positive reviews from various gaming publications. The gameplay and visual presentation in Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 were seen as strong positives; with one of the main drawbacks of the game being the duration of the story mode. The storyline in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 was compelling focused on the Fourth Shinobi World War. However, the length of the storyline for Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 could have been longer than it was. However, gameplay for Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 was addictive and easy for casual gamers to learn. But if we do eventually get an Ultimate Ninja Storm 5 game CyberConnect2 & BANDI NAMCO should definitely retain majority of the gameplay elements from the most recent installment from 2016.
If modifications are made to the tag-team system in a potential Ultimate Ninja Storm 5 it could be for better or worst since many people enjoyed what they got in the most recent installment. The real question is what the main story would be in a potential Ultimate Ninja Storm 5 game; along with whether or not there will be a Fifth Ninja World War in relation to Boruto. While the odds of a Fifth Ninja World War seems unlikely it would be almost impossible to have a campaign mode for an Ultimate Ninja Storm 5 game. If CyberConnect2 & BANDI NAMCO wanted to create a Boruto game with an updated roster while solely focusing on the fighting aspect of things; it certainly would not be as popular as the last two entries of the series.
