Some time back, we reported that Bandai Namco and CyberConnect2 were bringing Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy to Nintendo Switch in Japan this April. Now, we finally have word on when the game will be coming to North America.

A new trailer has been released, officially announcing that Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy for the Switch is coming Westward. Just like in Japan, fans of the franchise on Nintendo’s hybrid system will be able purchase the game on April 26, 2018.

For those not familiar with the game, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy is a compilation of the first three Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm games that originally came out on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It was originally released for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One last summer, just in time for the release of  Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4:Road to Boruto.

As previously reported, the Switch port will run at the same 30 fps as the original releases, but will feature a higher resolution (1600 x 900) when docked. In addition to this, it will come with the DLC released for the PlayStation 4 version.
