Bandai Namco has released an extended preview of the highly anticipated rematch between adult Naruto and Sasuke in an overview trailer for Naruto x Boruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections.
Despite its initial rocky introduction and the perception of being a mere recapitulation of the existing series rather than an entirely fresh game, Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections has gradually transformed its course by unveiling new characters and an original story mode that prominently showcases Boruto.
While the increased emphasis on Boruto in the story mode is highly appreciated, one of the aspects that has truly sparked excitement among fans is actually unrelated to his character. The latest game trailer unveiled an eagerly anticipated event: Naruto and Sasuke engaging in a long-awaited rematch, wherein Naruto appears to be under the influence of a malevolent entity.
The previous game trailer provided us with a brief glimpse of this battle, but thanks to a recently released overview trailer from Bandai Namco, we have now been granted a more comprehensive look. The overview trailer meticulously outlined how Connections will approach its diverse game modes, seemingly focusing on the inclusion of all the memorable battles from the previous games while potentially removing the adventure elements. Furthermore, it showcased an extended display of Naruto and Sasuke engaged in combat.
Following the release of the overview footage, Bandai Namco unveiled an additional trailer that offers an even more extensive preview of Naruto and Sasuke's intense battle. Based on the visuals, it appears that this rematch serves as the starting point for the new story mode, as name tags appear, providing explanations about Naruto and Sasuke, suggesting that they are being introduced to players anew.
Furthermore, it appears that we will have the opportunity to assume the role of Sasuke during the fight. This decision not only aligns with the narrative if Naruto has indeed been influenced and temporarily turned to the side of darkness, but also the accompanying screenshots released alongside the trailer depict the battle from Sasuke's perspective. However, it seems that the confrontation will be revisited multiple times throughout the story mode, as the initial showcase of their rematch included footage that is absent from this particular trailer and hints at a later stage in the fight, where both characters display signs of wear and tear.
For those eagerly anticipating a definitive resolution regarding the outcome of a showdown between Naruto and Sasuke, I would advise against raising your expectations too high, as it is probable that Boruto will intervene and halt the battle before a conclusive victor emerges. Nevertheless, even if this scenario unfolds, it will be fascinating to witness which character holds the advantage in their clash.
