Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker apparently does not have Denuvo and has already been cracked [UPDATE]

It appears that Bandai Namco has uploaded on Steam a Denuvo-free version of Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker. Although its Steam store page indicates that the game will be using the Denuvo anti-tamper tech, the official initial release does not feature it and as a result of that, the game has already been cracked.

Now we don’t know whether this was done on purpose (perhaps Bandai Namco will not be using it after all?) or by mistake. Either the way, there is currently out there a Denuvo-free version and once – and if – Bandai Namco re-implements Denuvo to its title, PC gamers will be able to test these builds and see whether Denuvo brings any performance hit at all.

Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker is new action game that enables players to compete online in 4 vs. 4 matches against other teams, with all eight ninjas fighting simultaneously to become elite ninja masters. The game was also built from the ground up in a completely new graphic style.

As always, we won’t allow links to the pirated version of the game and those that will share such links will be banned!


Bandai Namco has released a patch that implemented Denuvo to the game, so it appears the initial Denuvo-free release was a mistake.
