Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy Coming To Switch

The first three Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm games are coming to the Switch, Bandai Namco has confirmed today through a reveal in Japanese weekly manga magazine Shonen Jump.

The trilogy, developed by CyberConnect 2, was originally released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 last generation. They were then released again on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with graphics and resolution improvements as a Legacy collection that included the trilogy and the fourth game, Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4. The Switch bundle only includes the first three games, as the fourth game would have to be downported from current generation systems rather than up-ported from last generation systems.

The trilogy is only announced for Japan so far, but considering how well the series sells in America, a western release is likely. Developers CyberConnect 2 had previously been working on the Final Fantasy VII remake, but was removed when Square-Enix brought the project internally.

Our Take
I enjoy the cinematic takes on the Naruto games and just recently picked up the fourth game for myself. The boss fights are definitely worth seeing, so I am curious how many people want to take the game portably.
