The Naruto x Boruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections game is set to come out this year, and Bandai Namco has released an English subtitled trailer to show off the characters in the game.

The almost two and a half minute trailer features characters who topped the “NarutoP99” poll.

The poll was announced back in December 2022, during Jump Festa’23. While the fans weren’t pleased with the announcement, everyone had their eyes on the poll as the winner would get their own spinoff manga.

The top 20 characters in the poll are as follows:

  1. Minato Namikaze
  2. Itachi Uchiha
  3. Sakura Haruno
  4. Shisui Uchiha
  5. Kakashi Hatake
  6. Naruto Uzumaki
  7. Sakumo Hatake
  8. Sasuke Uchiha
  9. Madara Uchiha
  10. Hinata Hyuga
  11. Obito Uchiha
  12. Jiraiya
  13. Shikamaru Nara
  14. Tobirama Senju
  15. Gaara
  16. Hashirama Senju
  17. Deidara
  18. Neji Hyuga
  19. Sasori
  20. Rock Lee

Defeating every other Naruto character, Minato Namikaze bagged first place with a grand total of 792,257 votes, earning a solo manga of his own.

He is followed by Itachi Uchiha in second place with 505,014 votes and Sakura Haruno in third place with 489,619.

So far, no release date has been announced for Naruto x Boruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections. The game will be available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam.

Naruto is one of the most successful manga and anime franchises. VIZ Media publishes the manga by Masashi Kishimoto in English and gave this description for the first volume as:

“Twelve years ago the Village Hidden in the Leaves was attacked by a fearsome threat. A nine-tailed fox spirit claimed the life of the village leader, the Hokage, and many others. Today, the village is at peace and a troublemaking kid named Naruto is struggling to graduate from Ninja Academy. His goal may be to become the next Hokage, but his true destiny will be much more complicated. The adventure begins now!”
