Naruto’s Family Has Officially Grown, Says One New Promo

Naruto Uzumaki knows the importance of found family, and in recent years, the hero has put together a brood of his own. If you have finished Naruto: Shippuden, you will know the Hokage ended up with Hinata, and the married couple has kids of their own. And now, a new promo is out here expanding the Uzumaki clan for everyone to see.

Yes, you did hear that right. The Uzumaki clan just got a bit bigger, and the family has Kawaki to thank. Naruto was serious about taking the boy in, and as long as Kawaki wants a family, he has one with the Uzumaki gang.

As you can see above, the artwork went live on Twitter thanks to Naruto‘s official page. It was there fans were asked to submit special Naruto adverts ahead of the new year to usher in 2022. The pieces were selected by officials, and as you can tell, the Uzumaki family card does include Kawaki.

The older boy is standing next to Naruto while Boruto stands opposite him. Of course, Himawari is in the center, and Hinata is sitting off to the side in front of her adopted son. Clearly, the parents were serious about taking Kawaki into their home, so it seems the Uzumaki family has added a permanent plus-one to its brood.

Of course, Boruto fans should not be surprised by this update. Naruto has had a soft spot for Kawaki since he learned about the boy’s history. It is hard to ignore the pair’s parallels, and Naruto was never going to let Kawaki struggle alone. As the pair became closer, Naruto’s paternal nature showed out in a big way, and Kawaki has come to see the Hokage as his dad. So like it or not, Boruto is no longer the oldest Uzumaki kid. Welcome to the life of a middle child, man.
