Another iconic franchise will be making its way to Nintendo's flagship gaming console, and this time, it will be three times worth the excitement and gaming pleasure.
According to a report from Gamespot, "Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy" will be released on the Switch on April 26, marking the franchise's debut in Nintendo's fast-selling console. Interestingly, gamers will be treated to three Naruto titles, namely, "Ultimate Ninja Storm," "Ultimate Ninja Storm 2," and "Ultimate Ninja Storm 3: Full Burst."
The three games will allow players to follow protagonist Naruto right from his early days as a young ninja, all the way to Fourth Great Ninja War story arc. Aside from the games, the Trilogy pack will also include some DLC costumes and additional scenarios and episodes that were initially released as DLCs, the Gamespot report noted.
"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," said game developer Bandai Namco Entertainment.
Meanwhile, Comicbook.com noted that the first appearance of the "Naruto Trilogy" was in the PS3 and Xbox 360 consoles. The upcoming version, however, will only feature the first three games, leaving behind the fourth installment that came out on the Xbox One and PS4.
In other Nintendo Switch news, a recent report from the Wall Street Journal said that the console will not receive an updated model this year. Sources who had insider knowledge said that the current Switch model will be the one to be sold to the public for the rest of the year. Instead of releasing a new Switch model, the sources said that the company will focus on creating new peripherals for the console and improve on its online features to further increase its sales.
