Now that the main Naruto manga has finished its run, closing off the story of the titular character Naruto and this year’s Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 as the last in the game series, it makes sense for Bandai Namco to continue one of their most popular fighting games in at least some other capacity instead of completely benching it.
In the Naruto manga, even a younger Naruto and Sasuke had a hard time subduing just one Otsutsuki clan member, Kaguya. It should be interesting what happens when "Boruto: Naruto Next Generation" Chapter 5 releases next month.
Kishimoto ended his renowned Naruto manga in November 2014, after it was serialized for the better part of 15 years. He then produced Naruto: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring one-volume sequel manga. He also worked on Boruto – Naruto the Movie-, as the chief production supervisor on top of penning the script and producing character design.
