So, why is this addition so significant compared to the previous DLC’s? Well, the main reason is that it’s different. This DLC will be the first time a Karma seal has been introduced to any Boruto or Naruto video game and its announcement comes shortly after the Boruto Naruto Next Generations anime showcased Boruto Karma mark in action for the first time.
We have seen Boruto unleash its power in the manga a few times now but as it’s finally been introduced to the anime, Bandai Namco has felt it’s the right time to bring it to Shinobi Striker as well.
All of the previous DLC content has been available in previous Naruto video games but not the Karma mark and a more mature Boruto. This is the first time that we can play with such amazing power and that’s exciting. This form makes this DLC more enticing than its predecessors and might not only entertain current players but also reintroduce past players and attract new players to the game.
Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker was first released in 2018, which makes it almost 3 years since the release of a Naruto or Boruto game. This DLC is the future of the Boruto series and if successful, it will prove to Bandai that there’s a future and demand for a more “Boruto focused” video game.
