The creators being silent about the anime adaptation seems perfectly fair, given that the Jump Festa event is set to start in a few days. Naruto and Boruto will have a panel at the Jump Super Stage event on December 17th from 3:35pm to 4:15pm, which means it’s possible that the creators will announce the new project then. A few days back it was also hinted that Naruto would soon get new project information.
Sasuke Retsuden is a spin-off series of Naruto, written by Jun Esaka and illustrated by Masashi Kishimoto. The 20th anniversary of Naruto brought many big surprises for fans, and the manga adaptation of the light novel series, Sasuke Retsuden: The Uchiha Descendants, was also announced at that time.
The story of the series revolves around Sasuke, one of the main characters of Naruto. The 4th Great Shinobi War finally ended, after which the Shinobi world enjoyed peace for a long time. But Naruto’s suffering has not ended as he falls ill due to the chakra blocking disease. As a result, Sasuke wanders in search of a cure. He eventually emerges as a prisoner to infiltrate the Astronomy Research Institute with his old friend Kakashi, and his new wife, Sakura, to find a way to cure Naruto’s illness before it endangers the entire village of Konoha.
