Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is the best-selling anime game ever

During the heights of its popularity, Naruto was undeniably one of the biggest anime shows of its time, with dozens of games being made based on the IP. The Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm games saw particular success, with the latest entry in the series having officially become the best-selling anime game of all time.

As reported by the anime gaming news-focused ‘PS360HD2’ the 2016 fighting game Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 has officially sold over 12 million copies as of December 2022. This makes it the 3rd highest selling fighting game of the last generation (behind Super Smash Bros. Ultimate & Mortal Kombat 11).

Even more impressive however is the fact that Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is now also the best selling anime game of all time (with Dragon Ball FighterZ and Xenoverse 2 both falling behind with 10 million copies each).

The Ultimate Ninja Storm series offers an arena-styled fighter with dozens or even hundreds of characters based on the franchise’s 20+ year history. Publisher Bandai Namco announced earlier this year that a new Ultimate Ninja Storm game is in the works.

Dubbed ‘NARUTO X BORUTO Ultimate Ninja STORM CONNECTIONS’ the game is said to include a mix of old and new content, seemingly setting the game up as being the definitive Ultimate Ninja Storm experience with over 120 characters. It will be interesting to see how Connections performs when it releases later this year.
