In the previous manga chapter of Boruto Naruto Next Generations, the Seventh Hokage in Naruto Uzumaki, awakened a new transformation that we have never seen in the Naruto, Naruto Shippuden or Boruto series’s to date. This is actually Naruto’s final form, as Kuruma confirmed that using it will most likely result in fatal consequences. This is similar to Might Guy and Rock Lee’s Eight Inner Gates technique.
Despite this, Naruto awakens it in order to save his family, friends, Konoha and of course, the entire shinobi world. What happens next is still unknown but from what we have seen thus far, Naruto’s reached a new level of power that surpasses everything he’s dished out before.
Therefore, it would be fitting and of course, very exciting to have this transformation as a playable option in the latest Naruto game, which is Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker. Yes, the game has been available for over two years now, as it was first released in 2018. However, Bandai Namco has confirmed that more DLC content is still on its way.
Furthermore, there is yet to be any new news about an upcoming Naruto or Boruto game, which means there’s unlikely one in production yet as well. As a result, Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker will likely remain the latest Naruto game for a while to come.
If Bandai was to release a new form that has only appeared in the Boruto manga thus far, which is something that they have done in previous Naruto game franchises such as the Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm series. Then they will have to release the DLC after we have seen the full extent of Naruto’s power in the manga, which could take some time.
The reason for this is because the transformation has only just been revealed and the Boruto manga is a monthly instalment. Still, considering manga-only content isn’t something Bandai has been afraid to release in the past, then all of this is a possibility but we will have to wait until next year at the very least.
