With so much that happened last week, I found some juicy news to share!
Announced this Saturday, the Naruto movie Boruto: The Naruto Movie will finally be in English Dub and made for home DVD and Blu-Ray. Viz Media is in charge of the Dub and license. The movie is set to be released on March 28th. The voice of Boruto (Naruto and Hinata’s son) is done by Amanda Celine Miller; Sarada (Sakura and Sasuke’s daughter) is Cherami Leigh and Mitsuki (a friend to Boruto and Sarada) is Robbie Daymond. Here is the plot for the movie:
With Naruto as the Seventh Hokage, Hidden Leaf Village is planning to host the Chunin Exams to train new shinobi from the village and from their allied villages. Among the entrants are Sasuke’s daughter, Sarada, Mitsuki, an exceptionally talented yet mysterious shinobi… And Boruto, Naruto’s talented but impetuous son.
Meanwhile, Sasuke who’s been on a mission in another dimension appears before Naruto to warn of a strange impending danger. Shrouded with an evil aura, Momoshiki and Kinshiki appear and attempt to assassinate Naruto. Petrified, Boruto is shielded by Naruto, only to disappear in front of Boruto’s own eyes.
Speaking of Viz, if you missed out on watching the Sailor Moon R: The Movie that happened 2 weeks ago, you can preorder a copy of the DVD and Blu-Ray. The movie is set to be released on April 18.
Square Enix and Marvel
Announced last week, Square Enix and Marvel made a huge announcement that these two companies are planing a special Marvel Avengers project. This project will be a game featuring the Avengers. Based on the description, the company Crystal Dynamics (well-known for the Tomb Raider series) and developer Eidos-Montréal (Deus Ex) will be involved with the game. It is also noted that besides this game, other games from this collaboration will be releasing as well. The Avengers project game is expected to be announced for 2018!
