The game also offers over 72 playable characters, making it the largest cast in the Ultimate Ninja series. The fighting system has also been modified with the Awakening Mode being possibly available to use during start of the battle. The story mode will be similar to the ones from Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 rather than the previous game Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations which was negatively received because of its stale story presentation through static images. Boss battles that include quick time events and the use of strategies to defeat the opponent is the story mode’s greatest strength. It will also include the “Ultimate Decision Mode” which will give the option to change the result of the battles, resulting in different story line. Additionally, the game will also feature a hack and slash mode in which the player controls a single character that has to battle a series of enemies.
