Crunchyroll Games partners with Bandai Namco to deliver Naruto x Boruto Ninja Tribes video game

Bandai Namco, a leading entertainment publisher has announced a completely brand-new team-based battle game titled “NARUTO x BORUTO Ninja Tribes.” A game that will be playable on smartphones, PC browsers, iOS, and Android devices, with the browser version adding a unique experience, that will connect the game with original anime, which is possible with its joint promotion with Crunchyroll Games.

The game will be set in the universe of both the Naruto and Boruto anime series, bringing together some fan-favorite characters, spanning the multiple generations of the Naruto lore. Characters will include Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura of the original Team 7, as well as the Boruto counterparts, including Boruto, Sarada, and Mitsuki. During combat, players can show the skill and strength of their shinobi bonds with duo and trio attacks that are unique to each character combination. Combat scenes are all rendered in high-quality 2D visuals made to simulate and evoke the same feeling of speed and impact that is showcased in the anime series.

The partnership with Crunchyroll Games and Bandai Namco allows for the game to be first previewed at the upcoming Crunchyroll expo. Attendees will be able to get there hands on a playable demo of the game that will take them through the games first mission. Attendees of the expo can find the game demo at a special booth that will be set up during the expo, that takes place in San Jose this weekend August 30th to September 1st.
