To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Naruto franchise, workers behind the series are preparing many surprises for the fans. One of the surprises was the official announcement of the Sasuke Retsuden manga adaptation's release date, which will take place in less than a month.

The new manga sequel to Naruto Shippuden will be handled by the upcoming artist Shingo Kimura. He is known for his work on the one-shot manga Japonica, which was published in Shonen Jump’s magazine a couple of months ago. His art style is very similar to Kishimoto’s which has relieved many fans who were disappointed with the news of the original creator not returning for the project.

After the Fourth Great Ninja War ended, the Shinobi World enjoyed a prolonged period of peace. During this tranquil period, Naruto became afflicted with an illness that prevented him from accessing his Chakra. To help his friend and prevent Konoha from being attacked, Sasuke will embark on a mission to research what could be the cause of Nruto's condition.

However, he will not be alone, as Kakashi and Sakura will be joining him on this adventure. The journey will be filled with untold and unexpected dangers, which will put their bonds, as well as Sakura and Sasuke’s recent married status, to the test.
