Naruto and Boruto have lept back into games with the launch of Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker, and while there’s already a great roster of characters, here’s some interesting cameos I’d like to see.

Right now I’m kind of on the fence about buying Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker since I’m not really a sociable gamer and would rather play alone in a dark room with no one else in the house.

Though (shockingly), I do have friends who might get it which turns that apprehension into maybe… just maybe I could be persuaded to get if the following characters appear on the roster.

Shisui Uchiha

Shisui is just a badass. A mastery of the Uchiha’s eye based powers and a top member of the Anbu. Since some gameplay footage has displayed the use of the Sharingan I think it’d be great for him to turn and even be able to use the giant energy construct he could in Ultimate Ninja Storm 4.

Chen, a Taijutsu master from the past

The Taijutsu legend before Rock or Might, Chen wrote the book on kicking ninja butts with nothing but your bare legs and hands. Imagine Chen, Rock, and Might on a team? It’d be like the top three UFC fighters teaming up for a bar brawl.

Mecha Naruto

The robotic copy of Naruto was a funny two-part filler episode which saw a robot version of Naruto cause havoc around the Hidden Leaf Village.

Appearing in the Ultimate Ninja Storm games, he was fun to play with and it would be cool for him to turn up again and see if they could capitalise on his cartoonish Ironman move set.

Lars from Tekken 6

It still kind of blows my mind that a character from Tekken, a game with graphics that strive for realism, had one of their characters to appear in Ultimate Ninja Storm 2. Lars was a decent character to use in Tekken 7 with his powerful strikes, but if not a little slow in terms of movement.

I mean I’m probably going to spend my weekend trying to unlock the dude on Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 this weekend just for the Spring of Youth.

Have you got any suggestions? Let us know in the comments. Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
