Rejoice, Naruto fans, because a new entry in the Ultimate Ninja series is headed your way next year and this time it’s going to hit the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One — a first for the series. There will also be a PC release of course, but the news here is that this will be the first Ultimate Ninja title to see a┬árelease on the eighth generation of consoles.

The manga might be over, but it’ll be a while before we see the anime catch up and even when it does, Naruto has proven time and time again to be a strong brand for merchandising. Let’s be honest though, at least in that way the series will never truly end — even if there is a follow-up manga on the way.

There isn’t much information other than the tentative release date of sometime next year and a couple of screenshots which you can get a closer look at below, but I think the series’ long history speaks for itself. It’s been a while since I played a Naruto game, and I can’t wait to get back into the realm of the ninja and kick some ass (or try to, since I am notoriously bad at fighting games).

Are you excited? I sure am!
