There’s no denying that Naruto is one of the most popular anime/manga titles of all time. Thanks to its popularity, it has turned into a massive media franchise, complete with lots of video game releases.

Many Naruto fans all over the world likely grew up playing at least some of these games. Though the most popular is probably the Ultimate Ninja series.

The Ultimate Ninja series is considered the premier Naruto game series as it allows players to control their favorite characters and have them face off in 1-on-1 and team battles.

Ultimate Ninja began with the first game back in 2003. At the time, there were only 12 playable characters.

Since then, though, the future releases included more and more characters, with the new Connections game having over 100.

For this upcoming Ultimate Ninja release, lots of fan-favorite Naruto characters will be joined by the likes of Boruto, Sarada, and more from Boruto: Naruto Next Generations.
