The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu revealed a special tidbit from "Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker." This is the custom character creation feature that allows players to create their own character with their own set of skills and ninjutsu. Along with the skills, facial features and preferences are provided to help players add their own unique style.

In addition, the custom character creation feature provides players with a plethora of choices in terms of hairstyle, face type, eyebrows, eyes, mouth, nose, and more.


This is to make sure that no two players are alike when they face each other in multiplayer match-ups. In addition, players can also choose their character's main weapon and ninjutsu, according to Gematsu.

More features has been revealed

There are additional features and information that were revealed along with the custom character creation feature. First, the VR Ninjutsu Arena allows players to combat with other Shinobi of the past to learn a new ninjutsu. Second, the story of Naruto To Boruto: Shinobi Striker revolves around the era of the Seventh Hokage's Konoha.

To search for the strongest Shinobi, a tournament was held. Shinobis, or ninjas, rank up and determine who is the strongest one by defeating other opponents in each battle. Lastly, Boruto is the new playable character added in the fighter's roster.

The creators and developers behind the said game added Rock Lee and Hinata to the character roster. Along with the two character updates, a 16-minute gameplay emerged online, coming from an Animation-Comic-Game Hong Kong 2017, revealing game mechanics and its overall performance.
