Set after two and a half years later from Part I, the game follows the storyline of Naruto fighting enemies with his friends by his side.

The game was released in July 2016 in Japanese with an English version releasing later that year under Bandai Namco Entertainment.

The game allowed players to engage in shinobi formation battles where one could level up their players by winning matches.

The matches were won by strategically moving your characters in battle and defeating the enemy team. Some of the other features in the game include:

  • Trail Missions
  • Phantom Castle
  • Ninja Road
  • Ninja World Clash

But despite its smooth gameplay and stunning visuals the game is shutting down once and for all. It might be because of the lack of in-game players every day or might be because of lack of funds.

Nonetheless, the game was surely a hit among Naruto fans and will continue to be so till its last day.

We hope Naruto Shippūden Ultimate Ninja Blazing gets adapted into a PC game so that we can once again delve into the world of Naruto.
