Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Strikers might be a weird online multiplayer battle arena game instead of a traditional fighter, but it does one thing those other Naruto games don’t. It lets players make their own ninja. You can never have too many.
The country that made ninja famous is currently experiencing a shortage of their stage variety. There are not enough ninja performers in Japan.

Ninja are mysterious. There are things we know and things we don’t. But the notion that some have about these ninja water shoes is supposedly incorrect.
Nioh has some difficult bosses. They’ll shish-kebab you in the blink of an eye. What if I told you one magic spell that turns them into total pushovers?
