Naruto won the hearts of many fans around the world and is one of the best-known anime, high-fiveing giants like Dragon Ball and One Piece. Currently the story continues, but with Boruto, son of the protagonist, bringing many new characters who face the dangers of another generation. The success is such that media such as cinema, theater and games also have their productions of the series. Based on that, we have decided to create a list with the best Naruto games of all time.
Naruto Ultimate Ninja 3
Following in the same vein as previous games, Ultimate Ninja 3 brought additional characters, items, transformations, and several new special Jutsus, in addition to the Dual Ougis, which were special Jutsus with another character. It was the last game in the franchise before the introduction of Naruto Shippuden.
In addition to the story mode in which we had the well-known plot of Naruto, there was also an adventure mode in which we made a series of quests and minigameswith an unpublished plot for the game that we did not see in any previous OVA, movie, manga.
Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker
You may not like this game in a “low” position, but Shinobi Striker had everything to bring the Naruto and Boruto universe in a complete way, giving us access to many jutsus at the same time, adding many references, bringing a adventure mode that allowed unparalleled exploration and much more. That, the truth, did not happen and the game it ended up being pretty simplebut still very enjoyable for fans.
Shinobi Striker only works online and you can choose between four classes: Attack, Ranged, Support and Tank. When choosing a class, tYou will have access to different jutsus as well as a diverse play style. The point is that at first you have a lot of fun, but soon it starts to be repetitive and uneventful. Still, it’s a must-have game for die-hard fans of the franchise.
Naruto Shippuden: Narutimate Accel 2/Ultimate Ninja 5
Originally released as Narutimate Ninja Accel 2, but adapted in the West as ultimate ninja 5the game took the Shippuden story one step further than its predecessor, bringing numerous graphical and gameplay improvements, as well as new abilities and transformations.
Maybe the adventure mode of this game was the best among all naruto, even those that would come later. It was a lot of fun and at some point you could play Sasuke, but only after unraveling a lot of the game’s secrets.
Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm
We know that the game did not bring anything from Naruto Shippuden and therefore it may not be as acclaimed, but it was the first in the Storm series, with innovative gameplay, including elements that we would not see in any of the later gameslike Naruto in pajamas or the fact that the faces of the characters change as they take damage, or even the possibility that they start already transformed.
Needless to say, it was this game that introduced the boss fights so epic they would become a franchise classic Storm, as well as a reinterpretation of the most classic fights that will make any fan vibrate. The style defined here would carry over into all subsequent Storm games.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4
It is a consensus among Naruto fans that Ninja Storm 4 is the best game to date. the gameplay follows the same style as previous games, but with some more balanced features and with a lot of additional content, including Boruto. Future games are likely to follow along the same lines.
In this game we have naruto shippuden denouement, the Fourth Ninja War, incredible boss fights, a considerable visual improvement and a fun adventure mode. In addition, the modding community has created several interesting versions in which players can access not only other images, but also more jutsus and transformations.
Although the following games are not on the list, mainly because they are not as well known, they are still of quality and if you have played any of them you know that it is true. Naruto and Boruto bring us a very rich universe and we will probably still see many titles in production in the future.
Naruto: Uzumaki Chronicles 2
It is an adventure game in an unprecedented story, with the possibility to learn new techniques, evolve, delegate attributes and play with various classic anime characters. In the West it became known as Naruto: Uzumaki Chronicles 2, which is the sequel to another not-so-good adventure title.
The game has an adventure mode, in which we follow the main story, a mission mode in which it is possible to unlock secret characters, and even a very fun versus mode.
Naruto Ultimate Ninja Heroes 3
Unfortunately, the title is not as well known and it came out for PSP, bringing the same style of gameplay as Accel 2, but with many additional characters like Pain, Kakuzu and Hidan. Despite being better on several points, there were simplifications in some features, but nothing that made it inferior.
An online strategy game that has become quite popular, with websites created specifically for it here in different countries, in addition to all the dedicated content for fans. The game had everything to go wrong as there are no animations and you only see the faces of the characters, select the skills and then pass your turn, but the opposite happened and the game wowed.
The site has been deactivated, but is in the process of coming back, further improved. Despite being simple, the game made players think a lot and carry out somewhat difficult missions, such as winning multiple matches in a row to complete challenges and unlock characters.
From the writing of MGG Spain we have thought of 6 perfect animes to start in this industry, either for its visual quality, its narrative or even its enormous soundtrack.
