Bandai Namco has released a specs sheet for upcoming anime brawler Naruto x Boruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections, which confirms that it'll run in 4K resolution at 60 frames-per-second on PS5. That's obviously an improvement on previous Ninja Storm titles, which were typically capped at 30fps across the PS3 and PS4 generations.
Meanwhile, if you're playing Connections on PS4, you're looking at 1440p (PS4 Pro) and 1080p (base PS4) at 30fps. What's interesting is that this gap in performance between PS5 and PS4 means that PS5 players can actually block those on PS4 when matchmaking online. It's an optional setting, of course, but if you don't want your own frame rate to be halved for the sake of compatibility, you can avoid PS4 users entirely.
At this point it's worth noting that, as far as we know, Connections does not support cross-platform play between PlayStation, Xbox, PC, and Nintendo Switch. In other words, if you get the game on PS5, you're limited to playing other PlayStation users from the off.
Naruto x Boruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections is due out on the 17th November, but will you be sliding into this shinobi-based fighter? Remember to stock up on kunai in the comments section below.
