The beloved anime series “Naruto: Shippuden” may soon receive a Hindi dub, according to reports from Weeb Central. While the production and planning stages are still in their early phases, this development hints at exciting prospects for fans in India. However, an official announcement and release date are yet to be disclosed, indicating that it might be a while before the Hindi-dubbed version hits screens.
The distribution platform for the Hindi-dubbed “Naruto: Shippuden” remains uncertain. It’s unclear whether the anime will be broadcast on television or released on a streaming service. This ambiguity leaves fans eager for further updates on how they can enjoy the series in their preferred language.
The Naruto franchise has had a longstanding presence in India. It first made its debut in Hindi on Cartoon Network back in 2005. Since August 2022, it’s also been airing on Sony Yay with multiple language dubs. Additionally, the spinoff series “Rock Lee & His Ninja Pals” found its way to Nickelodeon Sonic in 2014.
Currently, fans can stream “Naruto” on Netflix, while both “Naruto” and “Naruto: Shippuden” are available for streaming on platforms like Netflix and Crunchyroll. However, it’s worth noting that only the original Japanese audio with English subtitles is available for these series.
Although “Naruto: Shippuden” concluded in 2017, an exciting four-episode comeback is in the works to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the series. Originally slated for release in September this year, it has faced a delay and is now set to arrive at a later, undisclosed date.
