Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker Has PS4 Open Beta Next Weekend

You'll be able to form a four-person team and battle online against players from all over the world with your avatar in the Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker open beta on PlayStation 4 from February 23rd–25th. So, just a few days before you can go head to head in the latest beta test for the Naruto fighting game.

The open beta will introduce the Hidden Sand stage as a new battleground. This map will require ninjutsu to get the best use of verticality to elude your enemies and disappear between the Sand's buildings. Players will need to adapt their strategy to the different constructions. Compared to the closed beta session, more than 30 different types of ninjutsu can be used in the open beta session. Players will be able to find their best ninjutsu combination to really take their fighting skills up a few notches this time around. It will also give a much better impression of what the game will play like during launch, at least for the four-person PVP modes.

To thank participants of the open beta test, they will get an exclusive branded T-Shirt for their avatar. This T-shirt will remain available after the release of Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker.

The game is currently slated to launch later this year on PS4, Xbox One, and Windows. The game does not have a set release window just yet, but having the game in open beta is a pretty decent sign considering past reports that the game was running behind schedule.
