Naruto

As much as I enjoy poking fun at the Naruto fighting game series (SAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASUKE!), there’s one thing that you can’t dispute when it comes to that franchise: The visuals. While most games are trying to breach the uncanny valley effect these days, the Naruto games have fully embraced the sheer lunacy and wackiness of that cult-classic manga comic series.

They’ve taken cel-shading to the max, with fights leading to technicolour explosions that regularly make me think that the cat has spiked my morning tea, yet again. It’s not just the visuals that are gorgeous, but the manner in which they’re presented, with the Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm games usually dialling the camera angles and pacing up to 11 during even the most middling of fights.

Usually, consoles have no problem handling those graphical jutsus. But the Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm games are also PC games. Ones that require some decent hardware to run. The recommended settings haven’t been announced yet, but here’s the list for the minimum settings no jutsu for Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, via Saiyan Island:

Naruto Storm 4 minimum requirements:

  • OS: Windows (64bit) 7 or higher up to date
  • Processor: Intel i3-530, 2.93Ghz / AMD Phenom II X4 940, 3.0GHz
  • Memory: 4 GB RAM
  • Graphics: 1024 MB video card, Pixel Shader 4.0, DirectX10 GPU
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Hard Drive: 25 GB available space

That’s on par mostly, with the recommended requirements for the previous game, Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution:

  • OS: Windows 7 or higher with latest Service Pack
  • Processor: Intel i3-530, 2.93Ghz / AMD Phenom II X4 940, 3.0GHz
  • Memory: 4 GB RAM
  • Graphics: 1024 MB video card, Pixel Shader 4.0, DirectX10 GPU
  • DirectX: Version 9.0c
  • Hard Drive: 8 GB available space

And then there’s the Sasuke requirements:

  • SAAAAAAAAAAAAAASUUUUUUUUKE!

According to me, those minimum requirements aren’t as nice as the crayons I’m given to play with instead of proper hardware. According to Geoff, they’re very nearly “potato-level” requirements, which kind of makes sense to me. Kind of. So, is your PC up to the task, or are you preparing to roll your eyes out the back of your head no jutsu at the thought of another Naruto game?
