How to Redeem Your CD Key for Naruto x Boruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections

Although it might be cheaper, the CDKey version of this game could end up costing you more money.

The CD Key Error Message

Redeeming the CDKey code for Naruto x Boruto results in players receiving an error message. It says that they need to activate the original game first. Considering your key should be the base game and not a DLC that needs an original game activated first, this seems strange. However, there’s a certain game that ends up counting as the original in this case.

Having Naruto x Boruto Shinobi Striker already in your library, or purchasing it if you don’t, allows you to redeem the key for Storm 5. I know it’s frustrating to spend more money on another game before you’re able to play the game you wanted. But this solution has worked for multiple players. However, if you’re unwilling to spend more money, and I certainly can’t blame you in that case, then you could contact the support team for the website you purchased the key from. For CDKeys, you could submit a ticket specifically for issues with redeeming a code. Or wait for information about a potential patch on Steam that fixes the problem.

That covers how to fix the CD Key won’t redeem Naruto x Boruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections issue. I wish I had a better solution to offer you instead of saying that you might need to purchase another game before your key can be redeemed. But the options are rather limited for solving this problem at the moment. However, check out our NxB guides hub for other topics like the difference between Simple and Normal controls.
