Following the recent announcement of its Japanese open beta, Bandai Namco has announced that Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker will conduct a worldwide open beta from February 23rd through the 25th.

All of the details from before remain the same, but now, players who were worried about missing out on all of the special items that the beta would include can rest easy knowing that they, too, will be able to join in on the action.

The beta will give players access to a stage from the Hidden Sand village, where Gaara and his two siblings originate from. Additionally, everyone who participates in the beta, which will be available on PlayStation 4, will receive a Shinobi Striker logo tee shirt, in game, for their characters to wear. It's not the fanciest customizable costume piece, but it does kind of serve as a badge of honor to show off your participation.

In Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker, the player is the hero of their own story. Customizable characters can be thrown into 4 on 4 battles with some of the most memorable characters from the series, and the player's journey will include pit stops at some of the most iconic locations from throughout the franchise.

Here's a little more about the game, from GameStop's official product listing:
