Bandai Namco and CyberConnect2 revealed new details about Naruto x Boruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections including costume customization, a new control scheme, and new Linked Secret Techniques. The latest information provides another glimpse into the new content that players can expect from the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations series.
Several cosmetic rewards may be earned through normal progression in Naruto x Boruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections. Players may customize costumes in a Character Customization feature with their newly acquired rewards. These custom appearances may be seen by other players while playing in online Ranked and Casual Matches. In Ranked Matches, players of similar skill level will compete for a top rank. For those wanting to have fun without competing for rank, Casual Matches are the best option.
Players will have access to a brand-new simplified control scheme. Simple Controls allows players to easily connect combos and ninjutsu by pressing the light attack button according to Bandai Namco. This feature is meant for accessibility purposes and those who aren’t skilled in action games.

Boruto, Hinata, and Boruto may perform the “Uzumaki Double Palm Strike” Linked Secret Technique together.
