Is Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 the last of the series?


Clear skies at last?

I mean, sure, this new, lengthy video from Bandai Namco showing off in-development gameplay from the latest entry in the Ultimate Ninja Storm franchise has other things to gawp at, like hot particle effects and ridiculous anime combat between ninja gods Hashirama Senju and Madara Uchiha, but there aren't a whole lot of surprises here for folks familiar with Naruto or with the games.

Instead, it's the bit at the end that's getting to me, claiming that "THE STORM ENDS 2015!". That's enough to get a guy wondering if the latest, PS4 and Xbox One-bound will cover all the way to the canonical ending of the Naruto manga, as well as if Cyberconnect2 is ready to move on from developing what has effectively become Bandai's version of Call of Duty, a globally successful yearly franchise game.

While I sincerely doubt they're done with Naruto (not even Naruto is done with Naruto from the looks of things), the most exciting thing to come out of this 2015's release of Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 might just be what it all hints about the things to come in 2016.
