Bandai Namco Entertainment America announced on Monday that it will release the Switch version of the Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Road to Boruto game in the West on April 24. Bandai Namco Entertainment America is streaming a trailer for the game.
The original Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 game arrived on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC in North America and Japan in February 2016.

The Switch version includes the "Next Generations" DLC pack update, which features Kinshiki Ōtsutsuki and Momoshiki Ōtsutsuki as playable characters, and adds Boruto-era costumes for 11 characters. The update will also be available for other versions of the game on the same day as the game's Switch release.
Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy, which bundles the first three games in the Ultimate Ninja Storm (Narutimate Storm in Japan) game series, shipped on PS4 in Japan in July 2017. Bandai Namco Entertainment released the trilogy digitally outside Japan for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam in August 2017. The game collection then launched for the Nintendo Switch in April 2018.
