Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm is a dumb title. Sorry, but it has to be said. Still, it's one of the best licensed anime fighters out there, though it has gotten a little stale (and repetitive) over the years. A couple years back, rumor had it that Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm was going to be the last entry for the series, but with the ongoing success of Boruto, it should be no surprise to anyone that the franchise will continue - and now a reputable leaker claims just as much.

Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 5 Is Coming

The news was leaked with the video above, and the leaker in question is Yuushizotti, who has earned a reputation of being on point, with his latest correct predictions being the Jojo games, and the Demon Slayer DLC packs.

Of course, the question is: Do we need another Ultimate Ninja Storm? Don't get me wrong - I do love the games, and they're great fun, but they could do with more depth and a bit of a shake-up in their mechanics. Also, seeing how Seven Deadly Sins is getting an amazing RPG, I can't help but feel a sting of disappointment that Naruto is still getting the fighting game treatment. I mean, Broken Bond was amazing back in the day, and applying the Genshin Impact formula onto the Naruto universe could make for an amazing RPG, but hey... that's just my 2 cents...
