The Japan release date for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 appears to have been revealed. This may be seen as bad news by the fans if the date is true, as it means we’ll have a longer wait.
As you can see in the tweet below the launch date has been revealed in the latest issue of the Weekly Jump magazine.

The date given, February 4th, 2016 contradicts the release information Bandai Namco Entertainment and CyberConnect 2 gave of Fall 2015. If this release date is in fact true, this would mean that there will also be a delay on the western release of the game too which was also set for Fall 2015.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is the first game in the series to be released on the current generation consoles, at 1080p. This obviously makes it a big release for the fans who are eagerly awaiting the release. Any delay would be bad news.
If the revelation in the magazine of this release date is true, obviously there are plenty of Western fans eager to know an official release date for them too. They obviously won’t be looking forward to any news that the game has been delayed till sometime in 2016. There is a chance that the date given in the magazine is in fact a mistake, which I’m sure would be a relief.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is coming to PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One.
What are your thoughts on this apparent delay of the game? Let us know below.
