We found out last week the release date for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy on the Nintendo Switch eShop in Europe, but a date for North America hadn’t been announced. That has changed today as Bandai Namco has confirmed it’s coming the same day as Europe which is April 26th. Sadly it’s a digital only title. The Naruto collection contains Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 as well as the downloadable content. Here’s what to expect:
“Experience Naruto’s saga in stunning detail through the Fourth Great Ninja War story arc and engage in competitive multiplayer local and online 3D arena battles with a huge cast of characters each with their own trademark attacks from the worldwide smash hit anime series. A number of DLC costumes from the original games will also be included free of charge. Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy will be available in 2018 digitally through the eShop on Nintendo Switch.
Developed by Japanese development studio, CyberConnect2, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy drops players into the Ninja World and gives them the chance to actively experience major battles and fan-favorite scenes with larger than life bosses, adrenaline-pumping quick time event sequences, fast-paced battles, and visuals that rival the anime series it is based on. In addition to the story mode, players can battle against each other either locally or online in kinetic 3D arena battles. The easy-to-understand controls give everyone the ability to have fun pulling off powerful attacks, while the large playable roster means players can choose their favorite characters from the show.”
